This is a great vest! It is a true fit, not bulky or square and, therefore, very feminine and flattering. I wore this vest in Whistler over a sweater or fleece top with a base layer for apres ski wear and it kept me warm. It is buttery soft. One of my male ski buddies fell in love with it and actually attempted to put it on. Ha! He wants to see if Marmot makes a men's equivalent. I live in a warm climate so this vest is perfect for those rare occasions when we get cooler temps. I have two of these vests and will likely get a couple more in different colors. As mentioned by others, the zippers do tend to get the fabric stuck in them but with a little care one can zip and unzip without having this issue.
