Icebreaker Men's Sierra Vest
Just What I Wanted
Perfect outer layer or light jacket. 100% wool - I have an Icebreaker hoodie that isn't (not sure of the advantages), but I love the feeling of this all-wool vest.

A great gift
Although I purchased this for myself, it fits very snugly so rather than going through the hassles of exchanging it, I gave it to my wife and she loves it! If you are buying for yourself, get one the next size up.

Nice & Warm
This vest is much warmer than I anticipated. Solid feel to the zipper and appreciate the "chin guard". Large fits me quite well - long enough to eliminate any lower back cold spots. Plenty of arm room.

Essential mid layer piece.
This vest provided absolute warmth and comfort as a mid layer. Was disappointed to find pill forming on the chest and stomach area after the first week, possibly from friction against the shell layer.
A versatile piece of clothing during a week of -32c weather.

One of my favourite pieces of Ice breaker. Had it for a year, then it went missing; Now purchasing another. Liked the fit, great for layering.
Great wind resistance, and warmth over much lighter clothing in cold weather.
The full zip-up was great while cycling to prevent that wind scoop effect at the front.

Comfortable, But Too Baggy
This vest is very comfortable, as it should be for the price you pay. Plus, I'm talking about Icebreaker, so the aforementioned is a given.
I understand that the description mentions "everyday wear", but I'd also like to see this be a little less baggy, and thus providing more function, in terms of being able to use it while running, or lounging.
While wearing it, I feel as though there's a lot of dangling material around my mid-section, and it just feels too big. Plus, I feel as though it's too long, too. I'm 6'0", on those nose, and I purchased a large, as my shoulders are quite big (I'm not bragging, I'm just mentioning as a point for how it will fit), and it fits my shoulders well; however, again, it's a little too long for me.
This has great fabric, provides a lot of comfort, is very casual, but not very functional other than lounging around in, or maybe hiking in.
Decent, but not great.

Would have appreciated heads up on zipper
I was very excited to get my vest. I was suddenly shocked when I opened my package and put the vest on and went to zip it up with my right hand! The zipper is on the opposite side of traditional U.S. men's garments. IF this was described on line in the product description, I sure missed it. The collar is a bit tall for me but I think I'm going to like the quality and warmth of the vest. It's well made and competatively priced and I'm sure it will be great. Just wish I did not have an unwanted and unexpected surprise right off the bat. Icebreaker, make it clear about the zipper side in the product description, please. If I missed it, sorry, my bad.
