Great Polartec Vest by Marmot
Marmot does it again. The use of polartec fleece on this vest makes it a very versatile piece of clothing. Wear it to keep your core warm during a chilly spring morning with a tshirt as a base layer. Or, for those of use that like greater mobility in while layering, use it as a mid layer for those colder winter days. Recommend this to all.

Polartec warmth and quality
Classic Polartec - been around a long time and been improved by Malden Mills year after year. This is a very light fleece and nicely compressible. Maybe the only thing lighter and more compressible would be the Chameece from MontBell. I'm 5'11" and ~160lbs. and own this and the Marmot Radiator Classic Polartec 200 jacket in size Medium. The jacket fits just a slight bit loose but is well fitted, and this vest, by comparison, is only slightly more fitted. I consider the size perfect for adding just over baselayers or lightweight shirts. The length is surprising -- a bit longer than the Radiator jacket -- so length of coverage is no issue at all. Built well. Good zippers and pockets. Worth getting if you need a great lightweight vest.

Great all around.
Just picked this one up, sized up since the L was a bit short in the body. Just a real comfortable fit on cool days and not too thick to layer. Pocket on chest is a bit on the small side, but should fit a cell phone in a pinch. Otherwise, no complaints yet!

A great purchase..
I bought this for my husband as an alternative to something heavier for the cooler fall mornings in Colorado. He has worn it most mornings, and likes the mobility he has without being to warm, and I think it's good looking.
