Purchased this last Jan but just tried it out on my Med Cruise. I am small and took the medium size. I found it very comfortable and it has numerous interior pockets for money, tickets, sunglasses, phones, tour info, etc EVEN a bottle of Wine!! Was able to remove foil and use a large interior pocket to walk through security with no issues. Was impressed with comfort even when loaded with stuff. Nice material too.

A couple had these vests on the cruise I was recently on. I was very impressed with them in person (sometimes it's hard to tell from photos) and the couple was quite sold on them.

In theory I like them, just not sure they are for me....Guess I'm still on the fence.

I jabbed the fleece jacket and the Molly jacket. I like them for travel especially in the airport. I also used as an every jacket this fall. All the pockets are nice but I did find that though I wear a large I prefer the roominess of an extra large.

Nice idea in theory. But, I think I would stick out like a sore thumb wherever I went. I haven't seen many women at all wearing jackets like this out and about where I've been on vacation. Ok in cool weather location, but I just couldn't see using this in a warm weather location.

I wouldn't be able to take them in the heat, either.

I've only used them in cool weather. Wouldn't try if I was traveling in summer or to a tropical location.

We sell them in the luggage store and I'm very impressed with them. No, not for warm weather travel, as not many people wear vests/jackets to warm weather locations, but a Med trip in the fall, or Alaska, someplace cool they would be great.

Multiple pockets so you can stash quite a lot, good quality, looks nice on. But every one I've sold I had the person go up a size to be able to fill all those pockets. The sizes seem true, but once the pockets start filling up, that takes a lot of space. What you can fit into the vest could take up the space of a tote bag.

I'd prefer a jacket style myself, I don't care for the look of a vest.
