Women's Arch Cape™ III Vest 4.7 5 6 6
Stylish and Functional This vest is true to size; however, when worn over a t-shirt with the zipper pulled all the way to the top, the chest is a bit snug (but bearable). The waist cord allows you to fit the vest to your size and adds a feminine look. Contrary to another reviewer, I found that the vest was of adequate length, and the length is slightly longer in the back. The vest is also functional with two outer pockets and two inner pockets (both non-zippered). For reference, I ordered an XS, and I am 5'4", 118 lbs, 34C x 26" x 34". October 27, 2014
Everything I wanted, but... Great vest, but waist is very short. Size M, and I am 5'3", so it is quite short waisted. Imminent departure, so I will make do. August 21, 2014
Fun Purchased this colorful (coral) vest recently and love the quality, fit and function. Pockets inside and outside and great style. March 21, 2014
This is exactly what I hoped it would be I am an avid outdoors person, in the mountains of Arizona, where it can be hot, sunny, windy, rainy, cloudy all in the span of one hike. This vest has performed exactly as I hoped. It's even stylish enough that I can use it when traveling. July 21, 2013
Great features and very versatile. Can be worn in any weather, over short sleeved t-shirts, long sleeved sweaters and even alone. Washes well, doesn't shrink, no ironing needed and packs well for travel. Looks fashionable, has two front pockets and two deep inside pockets. If there were more colors I would buy more, best vest I ever owned. May 16, 2013
Great Vest! I bought this vest as a alternative to a shirt for our fly fishing club. It's perfect, I can wear it over anything. I'm even thinking of buying another color. If I were to change anything, it would be switching the waist cord to an light elastic cord with a color coordinating toggle, just a personal preference. Great pocket vest for taking on vacation, if you don't want to carry a purse. April 12, 2013
