A casual, meticulously-constructed vest that belongs in your basic toolkit for all facets of weather and wind, from dreary to sun-drenched. Also, nothing cuts through a drab day like an Ida Outfitter in raspberry. This is empirically proven by our customers, who have field tested this vest in every condition, from Seattle to Key West and beyond.
I bought the blue spruce in a small. I usually wear a 4-6 and this vest is a little big on me, but perfect for layering. The color is gorgeous, a beautiful blue green shade, and the wool is comfortable. The trim is very nice too, a shade of brown that blends in nicely with the blue spruce. Looks great with a pair of brown corduroy pants! Nice layering piece - adds just the right amount of warmth on a cold Wisconsin day! Love the back side pocket for my phone!
I have 3 XL Ida vests - spruce, eggplant, & raspberry. These are my favorite go-to cool weather pieces. They are timeless. Usually I wear a 14 due to my curves & height, and they run a little loose, but I like to layer, so that is great. I doubt you would be disappointed!
First I bought the raspberry one. It is so gorgeous! I had to get the spruce. My coworker bought the green one, too! People continually will stop me and ask about these vests. They are timelessly practical and well-made.
I bought the Blue Spruce and it is gorgeous. The third pocket was a nice discovery and works perfectly as a place to put my phone when I ride horses. Love this vest so much and plan to buy more. Great construction, true to size.
I bought 2 vests- one in Charcoal and one in Raspberry. These vests are even prettier in person than they are on the Web. They are made of a nice, substantial wool. I am very pleased with the quality of this product. -OGM
