To be honest, I ordered the vest simply because of the price and the fact there was only one left in my size. I was quite ready to send it back if it didn't meet my minimum expectations (fit and decent workmanship). To say it far exceeded my expectations would be understating the facts. Not only did it fit like it was made for me, the quality of the workmanship was above reproach. I have ordered several items from Overland in the past and have, for the most part, been very happy with my purchases. But this simple vest is by far my ultimate purchase. I don't write reviews because I don't want folks to buy something just because one person liked it but in this case, if you are looking for a suede vest that looks, feels and fits great, then you should consider this one. You can always return it.
