The quality of this vest, like all Overland products, is unsurpassed. I was pleased that the double collar will lay down and does not have to be worn in the up position. It has a western flair, but still classy enough to wear most places. It runs a little large. I am 180 pounds and normally wear a 42, but had to send it back for a 40. Unlike a suede product, this smooth leather can handle outdoor work without being easily stained. The smooth wool lining is warm but not hot. Excellent product.
