Rated 4 out of 5 by biker59 great extra layer
I live in FL and rarely wear bulky sweaters, but I love vests like this to easily add or subtract from an outfit, or even to add when the house gets cool without having to turn the heat up a notch. However the zipper is not the best quality, it is very difficult to raise and lower the zipper. I like the lining, just wish it extended to the back too, not just the front. Saying this, I still like the vest and anticipate many winters of use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nancy42E Not quite right
I read the previous reviews suggesting the zipper was tetchy, and it is indeed--shockingly difficult to get started, sometimes sticky when unzipping, and generally rougher than I'd hoped. The thing I didn't see in the reviews is how the front lining flattens out whatever your natural curves in front may be, leaving the wearer looking a bit more boyish than she may have expected. I'm keeping it for its warmth and the fact that I just don't care how busty I could look in a clingier sweater. It's not itchy, the color is as appears online, and it helped me keep warm on my recent holiday trip. Putting the furry lining in back might solve a number of appearance issues. Also, the pockets are inappropriate for any valuables, as they are relatively shallow and flimsy. Excellent for tissues or a few bucks for the barista.

Loved this vest, but the zipper was bad on it. I expect better quality at this price. I'm returning it.
