This is a great short vest. I have one in black that I love (size medium) and wear it snow shoeing and around town. It sits just below my waist, looks trim in the rib cage area, easily fits under coats and is warm. I bought the white vest in a large to wear over a bulky sweater. Fits OK but it's slightly longer and the chest/shoulder is fuller than I need. So in the right size, this is my favorite vest.
"Nice but not as nice as I would have thought"
Nice vest, not too bulky, warm enough, nice color (I got the pink one although I wanted the orange!). But it's not as good as it could be. The openings for the arms have elastic for snug closure but it looks weird, like a baloon. And the size is right except it rise up to my chin like a floating vest when I run with it. I won't be able to use is to hike or run like I wanted.
