    I just got this product and its main competitor product. I like the StormyKromer vest better in almost every way: - I like that the SK material is thicker/heavier/warmer (26 oz vs. 24 oz). - I like the silky feel of the SK material better. - I like that the SK vest has a slick taped seam along the inner bottom of the vest. - I like that the SK vest has only four buttons, as opposed to five (should be quicker/easier to put fasten/unfasten). - I like that the SK vest's buttons are easier to fasten/unfasten (i.e., the button holes are more adequately large for the size of the button). HOWEVER, the "generous cut" of the SK means that it is much more roomy around the middle than I'd like. The SK is a tent! While I really prefer the SK over the competitor's product in every way but one, that one (i.e., fit) really matters more than any others. So the too-large at the waist fit of the vest is the ONLY criticism I have of this vest. From looking at other reviewers, I see that this is a common complaint. ~~~ Thank you for your comments - we will pass this along to our design team. You can always return it or exchange the vest to try a different size. ~SK~

    My wife bought this vest for me last Christmas and I began to wear it with my pajamas immediately falling in love with it. I wear it to work with a tie and dress slacks when weather turns cold and on the weekends with jeans and casual button down shirt. I even wore it to a formal as a a vest accompanying my tux and in the woods the next day, not many vests can make that claim and look equally as good on both occasions. Awesome vest, awesome wife for buying it for me!

    I have had a hat for several years now. I love it. Now I have a matching vest that fits perfect. I like the unlined vest because it breathes well. I wish I had known about your products when I lived in the UP for 22 winters. Now, I only live in the UP during the summer. Getting too old to drive a snow shovel. Thank you.

    I am a fan of the UP and hope to retire there in a few more years. From snowshoes to cutting boards to knives, I am happy to buy many handcrafted products from there. I own a number of Stormy Kromer hats and a Mackinaw coat. I appreciate the quality of the fabrics and the workmanship in those products but my recent purchase of a Button Vest has me wondering what has changed. I was delighted to see the button vest was available in tall sizes. I purchased one that arrived last week. The good news is the vest is constructed of heavy wool. Unfortunately, the overall workmanship on the vest leaves something to be desired. Where the stitching on the Mackinaw coat is well done, the seams on the vest are crude, at best. Where the inside seams of the Mackinaw are dressed in fabric and well-stitched, the inside seams of the vest simply tack down the wool, leaving the edges exposed. In the armhole where the side and back panels meet, the seam ends with a pointed end and the stitching stops short of the end of the best a recipe for fraying or for the start of the seam to unravel. The bottom edge of the wool is trimmed in a black fabric but where the cloth is folded and well-stitched on the Mackinaw coat, the cloth isn't folded over on the Button Vest and after just one wearing the edges of that fabric are beginning to fray. While I highly recommend the Stormy Kromer hats and the Mackinaw coat, I suggest you look to other American companies for purchasing a durable, well-constructed wool vest

    I'm kinda short (5'5") and while I'm not really fat, I'm certainly not what you'd call slim. I got a black Stormy Komer vest for Christmas and it fits like a glove, it is PERFECT. It isn't too long like most vests and jackets that fit around my gut and chest, it isn't too tight like most vests and jackets that are the right length. It's like Goldilocks found it in the 3rd bear's's JUUUUUUUST right. It looks great, it's really comfortable, it's extremely well made and Iove it. I recommend this vest to all of my "stout" brothers out there who are looking for a high-quality vest that will both make them look suave and classy and keep them warm as well. Damn I love my vest. -Billy

    I bought one a couple of years ago. The big advantage (for me) that this vest has over the competition, including Filson, is that the bottom of the back of this vest has about two inches more material than the front (i.e. its longer). Seems simple, but that helps cover up the base of your back when you're bending over or sitting and prevents the vest from getting pushed up by your belt when you stand up again. It doesn't seem like a big deal and its not mentioned or even shown anywhere in the advertising copy but I've found this to be a huge advantage when camping and canoeing in the cold. -Bag of Coins

    Love the vest, I have a large in grey, I am 5'4" 180 (32' waist) and it fits a fireplug like me perfectly. Great quality great looks and it goes with just about everyone of my six Kromer caps.... -Napie

    I puchased the vest in early December and was not disappointed. The fabric is of a very high quality and fits very well. I have other vests in my closet, but the Kromer is, by far and way, the best. -Alberta Foothills

    I love wool and only buy wool products made in the USA. Being from Michigan is an added bonus. I just got this vest in Black as a Christmas Gift. I am 5'9 and 160. The vest fits and feels great. It looks great for casual wear in the cold weather. Anyone that has not experienced wool products for cold season hunting, fishing or banging around town in is missing out. It is a superior fabric to anything synthetic and it keep your body temp more comfortable without the weight and bulk. -K9Dude124

    5' 7" 180 lb 43 chest ? bought the Lg . Fits great , feels better, maybe a tad long on me, but not a problem. I like it , rated only 4 stars because there must be something that could be better. I got it at less than sugg. retail , which seems high to me. -Sid
