Purchased as an outdoor vest for work: warm, durable, comfortable. I've not owned it long enough to say that it is durable, but the construction certainly looks durable. It is definitely warm with the Sherpa lining, and the Sherpa lining of the pockets is an added benefit....makes your hands feel much warmer when not wearing gloves. The size is definitely correct; however, if you plan to wear this outdoors for work, take into account what you plan to wear under the vest when choosing a size. I think I didn't realize that I like to bulk up with layers under the vest and have the vest as an outer layer, and as such, it is just a bit on the tighter side for size...not uncomfortable, but like 1/4th size too small when I bulk up underneath.

Great Fitting Vest
Carhartt has always been known for quality and durability. Though I've owned it less than a month, I can tell it's quality made. The nice thing about the Carhartt vest compared to others similar, is that it is not at all too long. A lot of companies make size Large items for tall people... well when you are 5'6" you don't want a vest/jacket that comes down to your knees... this one fits perfect just like a vest should! (so maybe not ideal for a tall guy-- but that's why they make them in tall sizes too)

Mens sandstone sherpa lined vest
I just received this vest today and put it on immediately. I have never had such an outdoor garment fits the way it is supposed to, and the warmth was fantastic. I was on the Oregon coast, and it was all I needed to ward off the cold sea breeze. I will definitely be buying more Carhartt clothing from Altrec. They have the best prices and the best guarantees in the market! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Very good purchase!
I am glad I got the xl tall. I am 6'-5" and defiantly needed the extra length. Gives the rugged look and goes good with flannel shirts. Has plenty of pockets.. T.he vest is quite comfortable on those in between days where you don,t want to wear a heavy coat.
