Women's World Trekker™ Vest is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from An odd cut I wanted to like this vest; it was just the style I was looking for. But, it was very small in the chest, and enormous below the waist. I thought of buy a larger size and re-sewing it, then thought better of that idea. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rugged Travel Gear Love it. Lots of great, functional pockets. The color is very versatile--a grayish cloud color. Will look great with black pants and shirt for travel. Thanks, Columbia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this vest Classy design, can be worn very casual or a little dressier. I normally wear both small and medium in clothes. I ordered a medium after reading other reviews but it was too big, not as fitted as I was looking for. So I ordered a small and it fits perfect. Hangs a little longer across the butt which is nice. It's not puffy or bulky, more of a sleek fabric. I love the open collar rather than ones that come up high at the neck. It looks so much nicer with a cute top under it and this collar doesn't get makeup rub off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and flattering I purchased the tan color about a month ago in the store.....I've worn it MANY times since then, including to work! Nice and lightweight, you can gather the waist, lots of pockets, etc. Love it! I almost always wear a Medium and that's what I took in this one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing Fabric I wear vests with pockets quite frequently because I do NOT like carrying a purse, so I was really excited to see this one described as "tons of pockets to stash all your essentials." But, honestly, although I am keeping it, I feel disappointed in it overall. The PROS: * The nice neutral light color (fossil) * It does have a decent amount of pockets, although IMO the layout could be improved The CONS: * The nylon fabric. This stuff is in no way "a lightweight, wrinkle-resistant canvas with a rugged, worn look." It's a basic, regular nylon. As such (no wicking features, etc.), it does not breathe and holds heat in very efficiently. I do not see this item as wearable in the summer heat where I live. NEUTRAL (or possible additional cons): * As someone else mentioned, this thing is high-waisted. * It really needs a double zipper (one that also unzips from the bottom) * The inside of the collar really should be a different fabric than that nylon. I'm not looking forward to sweating into that nylon. On me (narrow waisted), this vest is unflattering--it makes me look larger all over. Or maybe I just got the wrong size, I'm not sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This vest is wonderful! I got this vest at the last minute before I left on a month long trip last March. I wore this vest through Egypt, Jordan, Israel and Rome. I loved all the pockets. I could put a map, money, credit card, pass port and small gifts in the many pockets. It allowed me to leave my purse behind. I am 5'7" and I ordered a Large in the color Pulse and it fit just fine. It will always be worn over a shirt or whatever the weather dictates so it would be wise to not order a size smaller than what you normally wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! This is one great vest! Both on trend and practical. It will work with most any shirt or tee- i am going to get a lot of wear out of it, especially since the many pockets will allow me to leave the purse at home. I ordered it in "fossil," and it is a true khaki.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I wish find bigger sizes of vests I wish there were more colour options, styles and bigger sizes (plus size). I think a lot of people are interested in bigger, nice vest for spring and summer time but so far not too many options.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not quite right for me Great fabric, nicely made, interior pockets may be a bit small. I'm 5'6" 125 and the small fit well except my torso is a little long, so the waist hit too high on me. This would have filled a gap in my hiking and travel gear and I hated that I had to return it.
