A little disappointing...
I needed a vest for outdoor chores in the fall and warmer winter days that would allow me to work without feeling bound by a coat, but still keeping my torso warm. I bought this in a size Large Tall (I'm 6' tall with a 42" chest) and initially it fit well and seemed like it would be warm. Before using it, I washed it according to the label (warm water, low drying temperature) and was disappointed to find it had shrunk about 2" in the chest (it is now way too tight to wear) and much of the quilted lining had shifted inside the vest. The lining now seems bunched up in the lower part of the vest and feels thin around the chest area. The quality of the materials is great and the stitching is good, if it wasn't for the shrinkage and shifting insulation, I'd give this vest 5 stars.
