Didn’t know I was a vest person til I got this bad larry. Worn it almost every day this past year. Fits under or over any layer I want, great pockets and keeps me toasty. I’m wearing the vest right now as I write this. Get you one!

| Austin H. 25-11-2022 13:06

I love my Rain Defender Vest! It seems true to size. I teeter between L and XL range, so I went with XL so I could layer it on top of other clothes. I used to not be a vest guy, but I love finding reasons to wear it now!

| DEIDRA B. 21-11-2022 17:30

It was a present for my son. He ABSOLUTLY loved it!!

| J O. 13-11-2022 21:19

I grabbed this one cold day, as an emergency, expecting that it wouldn't really be any good on its own over a button-down shirt, but it's actually fantastic because this light

| Cory H. 02-11-2022 13:44

I had been on the fence about purchasing this vest but I am sure glad I finally pulled the trigger. It pairs well with any type of layers and is very comfortable and certainly durable out in the field.

| Jonathan G. 30-10-2022 18:22

originally saw this vest at a retailer but they didn't have the correct size. Carhart sizing tools worked perfectly. very happy thus far. works well as a base layer and looks great for a walk in the woods or out fishing.

| SUSAN J. 22-10-2022 16:23

Fits perfectly!

| Ken M. 17-10-2022 17:53

Love the style and fit.

| CRAIG C. 07-10-2022 14:52

| Michael R. 30-09-2022 18:04

Fantastic vest! Durable, high quality and sheds rain!!

| William H. 22-09-2022 20:57

It fit just as advertised and looks good on now that the mornings are cooler. Recommend it highly.

| Brian G. 27-08-2022 21:13

Z best!!!!

| Jerry K. 23-08-2022 19:17

Fits fine and looks great

nice and lite fits good

| V C. 21-07-2022 16:17

Great vest.

| Nick W. 18-07-2022 18:30

Fit is snug. If you don’t like a very fitted vest, you should definitely size up. I’m 5’8” 145lbs and I usually wear a small. This is a slim fit, not a relaxed fit by any means. The length is where it should be. I like the fit, but if you’re a bigger guy who is used to how most other Carhartt products fit, you will definitely want to go a size up. The vest is high quality though. I love that it has tons of pockets. I’ve worn it almost every day since I received it. It’s summer so I can’t speak on how warm it will be in the colder months in the Pacific Northwest, but it feels substantially warm.

| steven b. 10-07-2022 14:03

The perfect work vest. Was apprehensive about the durability of the nylon shell but it has lasted two seasons of hard food delivery work. Perfect weight for layering or wearing when temps are in-between a jacket and a shirt. Stands up well to light rain and drizzle.

| GREG J. 07-07-2022 18:03

nice lightweight vest. warm actually, nice appearance. I use the heavier canvas for work, but casual wear it's a winner, I have 2.

| Eric M. 03-06-2022 21:51

Bought one for my dad and he loves it!

| Michael H. 23-05-2022 17:01

This is an amazing vest.

| Dianne G. 05-05-2022 19:25

My grandson received the vest as a birthday gift and was very happy with the look and fit.

| Cary G. 04-05-2022 19:09

Warm and Comfy. Great compliments from others.

| rex l. 04-05-2022 17:57

Customer service is awesome. Thank You!

| Jim H. 24-04-2022 21:24

The fit is more conforming to your body but still offers you great movement for work or play. Lightweight yet warm. Makes a great extra layer or worn alone on cool days. The initial quality leads me to believe this vest will be really durable, but seeing how I’ve only had it a month, more time will tell.

| Robin S. 21-04-2022 17:39

I bought this vest for my husband. He absolutely loves it! Lightweight yet warm and rain resistant.

| Nick D. 16-04-2022 11:51

Light weight, warm, comfortable, and well made like all other carhartt

| David B. 09-04-2022 17:24

Lightweight and warm. 5 pockets which are always used.

| JOE C. 09-03-2022 19:18

I bought for early golf season but it’s so warm and great fit I just started to wear it all the time.

| Mr. J 08-03-2022 23:00

This is a great fashion accessory to have. Heads up, these vests are meant to fit on point. 6ft, 200lbs, the medium is pushing it!

| Mich Marie 08-03-2022 22:33

This is a great beat for all sorts of outdoor activities and just as a second layer when indoors.

| christopher P. 08-03-2022 19:39

Not enough insulation at all. I might as well be wearing a cotractors garbage bag i hate it Total waste of money

| Tyrel S. 06-03-2022 00:31

Best vest I have ever owned. No joke!

| Kern B. 05-03-2022 18:15

Fits amazing and I love how light and durable it is. Would definitely buy again and recommend to a friend.

| Brent T. 05-03-2022 00:29

Wear it every day fit was fine, very light weight and warm. Chest zipper pocket could be a little bigger for larger phones. Overall what I expected.

| Jaime T. 02-03-2022 21:18

Outstanding product, I wear it almost every day.

| Aaron G. 02-03-2022 19:11

Great feel and look!!

| Melinda N. 02-03-2022 18:22

Nice fit and length is good. Material is light in weight but warm. Bought 2 colors because they are so nice. It is available for men and women. Nice for layering in winter.

| Craig W. 02-03-2022 14:01

This is vest is Ideal for my daily work wear. I work in New England and travel around an Industrial site which requires my walking in and out of buildings in all kinds of weather. This vest is very comfortable, lightweight and warm. The vest resists dirt and stains and is very easily cleaned and cared for.

| Tom N. 01-03-2022 20:59

Love it, lightweight and comfortable.

| Tom L. 01-03-2022 19:32

The vest is exactly how it was advertised! Better quality/performance than other brand names!

Nice for cool days

| Karen S. 28-02-2022 15:03

wish carhartt would make 3xlt and 4xlt in vest and other items.

| Heidi R. 28-02-2022 02:41

Great price and nice quality vest.

| Alfonse C. 27-02-2022 13:43

This vest is comfortable and light but very warm I wear it daily in NY where winter is in full swing. The outer shell sheds dust easily and I would hightly recommend this vest.

| Jude S. 26-02-2022 20:03

Awesome.. highly recommend

| David T. 25-02-2022 19:17

It is nice and warm I love it it is one of my favorite vest !!!!

| Collin A. 25-02-2022 18:12

Excellent vest. I’d been looking at pataguccis and other puffer vests but chose this Michigan original and I don’t regret it at all. 5 pockets, very warm, feels tougher than other puffy jackets, GREAT hook loop for hanging up. Fantastic purchase.

| Howard B. 23-02-2022 12:24

Came in time just for Christmas! BRAVO

| Eric B. 22-02-2022 20:58

I am 6'5" and 260# and I ordered the XL tall and it fits snug. I can wear a light sweatshirt underneath but not a mid or heavyweight carhartt hooded sweatshirt or its too tight. The length of the vest is not overly long in the back like other carhartt items I own. It's a sharp looking vest that offers a good insulation layer without the stiffness or bulk of traditional carhartt outerwear. I would recommend ordering up 1 size if you plan to wear bulky or heavyweight items underneath and if you are over 6' get the tall size.

| CJ 22-02-2022 19:13

I like the vest

| Rachel F. 22-02-2022 18:45

My man has the coat and loves it, so I got him the vest too. He took it to work and wears it nearly every day. Awesome for layering or putting on instead of a coat for a quick job.

| MATTHEW S. 22-02-2022 18:20

Whether I'm going out to dinner with my lovely wife, training my personal training clients in-person or training my clients over my<br />VTS Virtual Training Sessions screen; my Carhartt vest is always On!! So, great...I bought 2×! Rain, sleet or snow...my Carhartt is grab'd on the way out! Warm, Comfortable

| Bradley P. 22-02-2022 18:15

Extremely short. Came with strings hanging off and unevenly sewn collar

| M A. 22-02-2022 11:00

Love the fit and the quality. It is perfect for construction when you just want a light layer.

| Gregory B. 22-02-2022 01:09

Great vest! Lightweight and durable and good for three seasons.

| Bradley S E. 21-02-2022 20:58

Great product. It was exactly what I was looking for. Looks good and keeps me warm.

| Patrick R. 21-02-2022 20:16

Amazing vest!<br />I wear it everywhere, a winter favorite!

| MICHAEL S. 21-02-2022 19:01

Excellent value great for those chilly mornings on the golf course. Seems to be high quality and looks nice.

| Ladd G. 21-02-2022 18:34

Exactly what I wanted. Fits great. Feels great

| Anthony B. 11-02-2022 21:01

Amazing vest. Fit perfect and is warm. I would recommend this as an additional layer or an outer layer on cool days.

| David K. 23-01-2022 21:15

Great look

| Taylor O. 01-01-2022 17:56

There was a stain on the vest when it arrived. I am extremely disappointed and am wondering how to fix this.

| Kathleen B. 19-12-2021 22:09

Perfect for at work. Wear it every day. Very comfortable, warm not bulky.

| Mary J. 18-12-2021 18:39

Vest over all is nice but much thinner than expected.

| James M. 14-12-2021 03:13

I would recommend this product, very nice and fits perfect length wise

| Cody T. 13-12-2021 18:27

Love this deal

| Lisa S. 12-12-2021 19:56

Love love love this Best I bought one for myself last year I am a woman and it fits wonderfully the women’s clothes are often just to fit it in not as designed for work so this is perfect then I got it for my brother for his birthday and extra-large he just loves it the chest pocket on the left fits your smart phone perfectly then inside zipper pocket for keys and two outside pockets easy to slip your hands into it’s just a great great light weight but warm layer and not. I ordered one for each of my kids for Christmas and also ordered one for another friend way to go as usual Carhartt as heavy and stiff as the duck cloth. I ordered one for each of my kids for Christmas and one for another friend so way to go Carhart great design!

| Chaf B. 12-12-2021 18:07

Great quality

| JEFFERY C. 10-12-2021 22:28

Fantastic weight vest

| Charles C M. 10-12-2021 00:50

It's AWESOME Vest I love It.

| Anto P. 09-12-2021 18:48

Wore it every day the first week I got it. It has a blend between the function of Carhartt vests and the look of the tech worker brand at twice the price.

| John H. 09-12-2021 00:29

As far as use goes, it just arrived today, several days ahead of schedule. I have seen a variety of reviews regarding the correct size. I have several other Carhartt jackets and this vest fits the same as the other garments I have from here so no sizing issue with me. Others have mentioned the velcro on the inside pocket. That too is the same as my other stuff, and like others have said, that is some serious velcro! To better suit my personal needs, I carefully removed the piece on the pocket itself. Of course if you need the pocket to stay closed, it will do a great job. Of course I cannot latch the pocket closed now, but that is fine with me. The other inside pocket is zippered as is the outside vest pocket. The side pockets have a snap if you need. I'm looking forward to using this vest. It is very light weight and will be perfect with a flannel shirt of as an extra layer with a coat. It is exactly what I was looking for. As I mentioned, I just received it so no eval on durability other than to say it appears to be the quality I have come to expect from Carhartt. For that reason only, I'll drop one bar on durability, but I don't expect that to be an issue for me.

| BRIAN D. 08-12-2021 18:13

Great fit. Comfortable to wear. Durable product!! Even the stepson liked it so he received an early Christmas gift!!

| Kerland E. 07-12-2021 12:36

Worth every penny I paid for it. Fit is perfect, comfort is exceptional providing the right amount of warmth with little weight and bulk. I am sold. Highly recommend. Can’t comment on durability cause I recently got it but it’s a Carhartt so I wouldn’t be to concern about that.

| Deb D. 06-12-2021 20:31

I bought this for my husband. It looks great, repels water, and fits perfectly.

| Rodney W. 06-12-2021 18:33

This is the second vest Carhart Rain Defender Black vest I have had. I loved the first one. Although I like the new one, something is different about the collar, it does not seem to fit against my neck and chin as well as the last one and allows more wind and rain to get in. That being said, I still like and recommend the vest. its is comfortable and durable.

| John M. 06-12-2021 18:24

Very comfortable and warm. Perfect fit and true to size.

| Christopher O. 05-12-2021 20:46

Very comfortable and light weight. Perfect for cooler mornings in Arizona

| William T. 05-12-2021 20:27

Just what I was looking for. Wear it all the time. Weighs nothing and warmer than you would think. Good stuff!

| Nick P. 04-12-2021 22:25

Highly recommend. Love it.

| Tim M. 04-12-2021 21:42

Great vest!

| C J. 04-12-2021 19:20

Very comfortable and light weight. Great for layering for early mornings. True to size I’m slender built and M fits perfect, I’m not swimming in it nor is it tight. I work in the metal fabrication field not sure it will stand the test of time.

| Josh B. 02-12-2021 19:19

Amazing vest! Not too short and not too long. Great quality

| Steven G. 02-12-2021 18:16

Perfect! Old school quality!

| Frederick H. 30-11-2021 23:23

This product fits well and is very comfortable . I wear it when I’m doing things out back. Highly recommend this vest.

| Kasey E. 28-11-2021 21:25

Perfect fit and weight

| Holly H. 28-11-2021 13:43

It was just what my husband needed to keep his back warm during the MN winter months. He loves it and also the pockets. I have ordered 2 thinking about a third.??

| SCOTT S. 27-11-2021 02:49

I recommend this vest! I absolutely love it. Specifically, I really love pockets! The front top pocket on the outside of the vest is perfect for my cell phone. A bonus are the two additional pockets on the inside. The elastic drawstrings keep the bottom of the vest sung so no wind can move up inside. Last, I was really please at the waterproof shell. I got caught in the rain the other day and the water just wicked away. Color and fit are perfect for me.

| Derek H. 22-11-2021 19:10

I love the fit and how even though it’s light weight it adds that little bit of extra warmth I need. And it got here super fast.

| Dweezy 21-11-2021 19:14

Handsome vest!! I ordered it in 2xt and it fits

| Javier P. 21-11-2021 17:55

Exactly what I was looking for Carharrt never disappoints!!

| Joseph S. 16-11-2021 18:15

The vest was delivered within the tine aloted. I really like the vest. It is warm and fits well.

| Andrew N. 15-11-2021 22:10

Order came very quickly and the product was as ordered when at the store

| Robert Miller M. 13-11-2021 01:22

Jacket is awesome with all the pockets and style

| Linda L. 11-11-2021 18:18

Nice fit. Plenty Warm. Good for cool weather when you don't want to be bundled up.

| andre a. 07-11-2021 20:59

Light weight true to size fit is vey comfortable and the pockets and zippers are high quality to match the vest.

| Theodore L. 03-11-2021 17:04

Love it! Might order another on a different color

| Russell L. 01-11-2021 18:52

I’ve owned one of these before in a different color. They’re awesome vests that can be worn in warm and cold temperatures. The left breast zip pocket really comes in handy.

| David P. 27-10-2021 16:48

It’s a very good vest great quality

| Michael B. 25-10-2021 18:45

The Carhartt 3XL Vest that I receiver is nice and the right color however its too big and I needed a 2XL. I know I can’t return it because I took the tags off before trying it on. I wish I could repurchase a 2XL but cannot locate. I’m willing to purchase again

| Linette A. 20-10-2021 12:09

Perfect weight vest. Like all the pockets. Just the right thing to wear with hoodies and sweatshirts.

| Kim M. 15-10-2021 17:30

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! Perfect vest. Not bulky and just the right amount of warmth.

| Michael S. 04-10-2021 18:19

Great vest! Love it!!

| Skarie A. 23-09-2021 22:05

Great vest

| Skarie A. 23-09-2021 22:04

Great vest.

| Stephen O. 05-08-2021 20:27

Swiss-army knife of vests. Tons of storage. synch-straps that keep things tight and secure, and a waterproof vest might seem like an odd combo but sometimes that's all you really need.

| Andrew W. 16-06-2021 17:07

great fit and look!

| Stephen C. 09-05-2021 19:26

Fit is rather small. I would need a large vest, and then wear the jacket in medium

| Lou D. 01-05-2021 17:47

Great vest for the price

| Carlene R. 28-04-2021 19:29

Very satisfied great quality. Will definitely recommend to anyone

| Trish B. 27-04-2021 17:05

My husband loved the color, design, look and quality!

| Kelly L. 26-04-2021 18:39

The older version without the lined collar is actually more comfortable around the neck area. If you are known to have a stubbly neck or beard this vest is constantly grabbing you by the neck hair. The older unlined version never did this. I just have to remember to shave every morning then it's fine...

| James G. 24-04-2021 19:51

I.like the vest. It fits well and looks good.

| Luis D. 22-04-2021 19:48

I’ve been wanting a vest for some time now. Looked at the Patagonia and North Face vest as well. Glad I went with the Carhartt Gilliam vest. I ended up buy it in two colors. It’s perfect fits great true to size.

| Jaime Pforr or W. 04-04-2021 00:30

Good quality and fit

| Mando 30-03-2021 14:22

good fit and comfortable. Had lots of pockets.

| Gary L. 30-03-2021 12:20

Good fit, lots of pockets, water repellent, does what it's supposed to.

| Autumn S. 29-03-2021 16:57

Lightweight and comfortable.

| Mardell R. 27-03-2021 17:09

Fits and feels great!!

| William H. 25-03-2021 17:05

Great vest at a good value compared to others.

| Cameron M. 25-03-2021 17:02

Very stylish, durable, and function for the days I need an extra layer on those cool spring temperature days.

| Greg T. 24-03-2021 04:12

I love this vest and wear it all the time. It fits perfectly (LT), is warm but lightweight, and the pockets are really useful. 

| Steven S. 23-03-2021 18:39

Very satisfied

| Peter L. 21-03-2021 20:53

Haven't owned it long enough to truly comment on durability but I have other Carhartt gear that's stood up well and I expect this will be the same. The only reason to mark it down slightly on Functionality is that the velcro on the inside pocket is maybe too strong - you almost need two hands to open it but maybe it will soften a bit after some use.

| John M. 21-03-2021 17:26

Comfortable...light...keeps me warm when necessary...like it alot

| Aaron P. 19-03-2021 21:00

Best vest I have ever bought I will get more

| Derek H. 18-03-2021 19:02

Perfect. Not too poofy but warm.

| William E. 18-03-2021 18:52

Nice and light but ward enough for the mid 40s to 50s. In winter I will use under a 3 season jacket for extra warmth when needed. Not bulky at all. Like very much.

| David D. 18-03-2021 17:08

I should have ordered a large ,medium fots like a small..

| Brandon D. 13-03-2021 18:35

Love it ! Great fit and good for early/late winter weather

| Faye C. 12-03-2021 04:24

He likes it

| Tim R. 06-03-2021 18:02

Great vest! Comfortable and fits well. Will be purchasing another one.

| Robert C. 04-03-2021 18:19

Fits perfect really impressed <br />Thanks

| Sean B. 01-03-2021 15:08

Very true to size, suprisingly warm with exceptional durability.

| Emily A. 28-02-2021 17:55

Bought this vest for my boyfriend who's been looking for one and he loves it! Super functional and it looks great!

| marymargaret S. 27-02-2021 03:41

Too big. Trying to return

| Brendan S. 26-02-2021 19:27

Great product<br />Looks and feels wonderful. Thanks Carhartt

| Bertha G. 25-02-2021 18:11

Me and my husband ordered matching vest. We were both happy with them. They fit well and keep us warm. We like the inside pocket

This was a gift for my husband. He had this vest in another color and wore it SO often that I felt he needed another one. He loves the fit, the warmth, and the comfort! This is a very versatile addition to his winter outerwear; I may get him a third one.

| Chris B. 22-02-2021 18:33

Very light weight but very warm. Perfect for layering

| Melanie M. 18-02-2021 14:33

This vest is warm with breathability. It's not bulky, my husband like it very much!

| Mike R. 18-02-2021 00:18

Good quality, perfect fit, not too bulky.

| James N. 16-02-2021 20:50


| Tina C. 16-02-2021 18:41

Love this vest! Very light and provides lots of warmth! I would definitely recommend this vest to a friend.

| Tom S. 16-02-2021 18:05

Excellent vest I like the length

| John R. 15-02-2021 00:38

Great fit and quality expected from Carhartt

| Emonte J. 14-02-2021 19:46


| cliff b. 13-02-2021 19:07

Excellent vest for layering under a coat. It’s warm and thin so I’m not too bulky. Works great for just cool weather too.

| Enrique V. 11-02-2021 18:00

Feels great and fits just right. I like that it has many pockets with secure buttons and zippers. It is also very warm and comfortable.

| Martha D. 07-02-2021 20:55

Very nice good looking vest!

| Thomas J. 06-02-2021 18:06

I ordered the 'Large' size; received the 'Large' size vest; too tight in the chest area; returned the item.

| GeneH 05-02-2021 17:51

Love this vest in orange!!! Very comfortable and useful

| Eric D. 04-02-2021 19:45

Great vest warm, comfortable, stylish.

| Jim P. 02-02-2021 21:45

Very nice for work or play. Very comfortable ..

| Marsha P. 01-02-2021 17:47

I would really like to have a 2-way zipper. I ordered Tall because I like more coverage. That worked out well.

| Jeremy J. 01-02-2021 11:40

Love the vest, I wear it all the time and I need to order a second one!

| Rose 30-01-2021 18:19

The collar is a little stiff. Otherwise it is great!

| Robert G. 30-01-2021 15:25

Saw the vest at the local feed store buying feed. Liked the look and light weight of it. Tried it on over carharrt Paxton hoodie great fit. Only carharrt offers XLT products that are true. Paired great with the chore coat over fot really cold mornings. Took chore coat off kept vest on and never got to cold. Great buy

| Gerald T. 29-01-2021 18:11

The vest is too tight in the torso. I have the coat in the same size and it fits me perfectly. The vest run a size smaller than the same sized coat.

| Tim C. 28-01-2021 23:59

Fits great! Keeps warm and stops the wind

| Anthony B. 28-01-2021 22:49

Love it, LT fits perfect!

| Joshua B. 28-01-2021 20:14

Fits great, love all the pockets inside

| Steven A. 27-01-2021 04:59

Met my every expectation of Carhartt quality.

| Dusty R. 26-01-2021 14:51

Great fit, great look. Durability is amazing.

| Molly J. 24-01-2021 13:22

Perfect weight for everyday wear. Not too bulky.

| Paul Y. 22-01-2021 18:04

Great fit, seems durable for being an insulated vest.

| patricia b. 22-01-2021 17:31

The vest was a gift and the party who received it loves it!

| BRUCEK B. 21-01-2021 14:13

I like the soft shell vests

| Hali C. 21-01-2021 00:12

Bought it for my husband and he loves it. He’s 6ft and built like a brick house. The XLT fits great.

| Tim C. 20-01-2021 02:37

I ordered online and was very pleased with how quickly it arrived. I was looking for an alternative to wearing a winter coat and this vest fit the bill. It is warm and very comfortable. The sizing was also spot on.

| Jorge O. 19-01-2021 23:52

Its nice but runs small

| Korey S. 19-01-2021 22:03

Own several pieces of Carhartt clothing, always top quality products.

| Michelle P. 19-01-2021 20:44

Love it?? Fits perfect

| Tina G. 19-01-2021 17:39

Great product it was for my husband and he absolutely loves it great fir and washable.

| Brady B. 19-01-2021 02:41

Great all purpose vest!

| Jerry C. 17-01-2021 18:17

Does the job!

| Rodger D. 16-01-2021 22:28

Looks great fits well

| Chris J. 16-01-2021 18:21

I purchased this for work and casual. I have had several other vests by other manufacturers and nothing compares to the Carhartt quality, style, and functionality. Hands down the best vest ever. True to its size.

| Eric S. 15-01-2021 18:39

Great fit. I’m 5’10” and 170 pounds, athletic fit. Medium fits me perfectly.

| Lee O. 15-01-2021 18:36

Well worth it. It may be slightly smaller than I expected (I got a large), but it probably fits perfect. I like it.

| JoannaW E. 14-01-2021 22:05

The item was a Xmas gift. The recipient loves it.

| Jacqueline B. 13-01-2021 17:53

Unfortunately, I need to return the vest. It runs MUCH SMALLER than the sizing. My husband would like another one if it comes in a larger size. Unfortunately his Christmas morning was a failure.

| Ezra S. 13-01-2021 17:39

Great Vest<br />When i found out they were discontinuing the Hunter Orange colour i bought 3. I am now down to my last one. The Orange is the only one i will buy.<br />Bring it back!

| Tammie L. 13-01-2021 16:23

This was a gift to my son and he likes it a lot. He is thin and it’s hard to find clothes that fit smaller men. The small vest and long sleeved T-shirt I got him both fit perfectly!

| Paige T. 13-01-2021 03:12

Can’t get anyone to respond to an email to return this item. The site says It doesn’t recognize my email even though they email. Hopefully this will get someone to get back to me.

| David K. 09-01-2021 18:29

Warm. Good looking. Good fit. Like the pockets.

| Aaron W. 08-01-2021 15:56

I just received this vest and I must say it is VERY nice. I am a contractor so and am constantly in and out of my van. I was looking for something that would keep me warm without needing a full jacket and look presentable when I visit with clients. This was exactly what I was looking for. I was debating on this vest, the Patagonia Nano vest and the Duluth Alaskan Vest and I am very glad I purchased this one. I tried them all on and this fits the best and looks the best. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

| Mike 07-01-2021 18:47

I wear a 2xt in everything I wear with the carhartt brand on it and I wear a lot of Carhartt clothing. This Gilliam vest I ordered in a 2xt and it was way to short. Don’t even see how it could be called a tall. Luckily when I ordered this I also ordered a 2xl regular Carhartt vest for a friend. After seeing that my vest didn’t fit, my friend tried mine on and it fit him perfectly so he kept it and saved me the hassle of sending it back. Just a little advice, if you are buying the Carhartt Gilliam vest, buy it a size larger than you would normally wear in any other Carhartt apparel.

| Gail P. 07-01-2021 18:32

My son really liked the vest! It was fit him well!

| Melinda T. 07-01-2021 17:28

Gift for my Son for Christmas. He loves the fit. Great weight and great style.

| Richard C. 05-01-2021 01:41

Looks great and comfy.

| Will H. 03-01-2021 16:58

I am a working rancher in Oregon, this is the best vest I have worn, I have tried several brands none compares.<br />I wear one to work every day. They are durable flexible light yet warm and comfortable. Great pockets that are well placed.<br />Thank You

| NOEL 03-01-2021 07:07

This vest is exactly what I wanted. It keeps you warm without the bulk of a full jacket. It looks good and is versatile—goes well with just about anything. Really comfortable. I bought the black one, the quality is great. I’d definitely recommend this product.

| robert s. 02-01-2021 17:45

Love it all good true to size

| Aimee A. 02-01-2021 17:39

My husband loves this vest and he’s EXTREMELY picky with regards to style/fit. This vest looks sharp for work/casual wear and is nicely fitted (not bulky). He is already asking for the navy blue one in addition to the black.

| Brenda C. 02-01-2021 16:40

I ordered for my son who mentioned he’d like one as a christmas gift. He really likes it.

| AnneMarie P. 02-01-2021 07:24

my son loves it

| Eduardo H. 31-12-2020 04:27

The vest runs big. I purchased 2, I would like to return them and switch them for Large. Please advise, thanks.

| Karen N. 30-12-2020 18:07

Great vest. Warm but lightweight

| Duane M. 30-12-2020 17:42

This vest is a warm addition to my outer wear...it can be warn separately for quick errands to the store, or under additional outwear for extended stays out of doors...without the bulk. I love this product!

| John C. 29-12-2020 14:24

a good medium weight vest that feels good and I believe looks good

| Deborah M. 28-12-2020 20:04

Excellent vest

| M C. 28-12-2020 19:37

Bought 2 of these—a L Tall for my 6 foot 5 inch son, and an XL tall for my 6 foot 4 inch husband. It’s not easy to buy clothes for either one of them, so I was thrilled they liked the fit, the color and the material.

| Maryann S. 28-12-2020 17:59

It was a gift and the person loved it.

| Christopher M. 27-12-2020 19:28

I am a electrician and purchased this to replace my Sherpa Vest which the zipper failed on and is the 3rd Carhart vest I have replaced for this reason. I already have the coat version of this which I have owned for a couple of years and it is by far my favorite jacket to run around in, not to hot not to cold and very lightweight. The new vest comes with a cloth neck liner instead of nylon which will get dirty faster as a work jacket and that is really my only complaint. Hopefully the zipper will hold up better than my previous vest, they all have failed where the teeth come together at the bottom.

| Wayne P. 22-12-2020 18:12

I have had one of these for a couple of years and wore it out so this is my second one! Very comfortable and durable!

| Kayla H. 06-12-2020 13:00

Perfect vest . Thin, but warm and durable for working around the farm. . True to size. True to color. Got the dark blue and it looks the same in person as it does in the picture.

| Blake R. 04-12-2020 20:44

Great fit and warm!

| Scott F. 04-12-2020 02:52

Amazing warm and perfect fit.

| David S. 03-12-2020 18:44

Great vest, it’s exactly what I expected.

| Daryl L. 28-11-2020 01:01


| LAWRENCE W. 23-11-2020 19:22

The vest is light weight but warm and water resistant.

| Alice R. 22-11-2020 20:35

I ordered all products 4 my son who works outside

| Theresa S. 20-11-2020 17:50

My husband loves this vest, super warm and comfortable. He normally wears a size large, but it was way to big and he had to return it for a medium.

| JT W. 19-11-2020 15:48

Definitely lives up to the Carhartt name. When a brand that I've relied on for its durability becomes a high school trend for clothing I was concerned with the quality of products dropping. But this vest is toughness I would expect with the Carhartt label.

| Audrey H. 17-11-2020 18:42

Great vest, great carhartt quality. The XL tall was the right choice for my husband who is 6’4”.

| Louie A. 16-11-2020 23:41

Comfortable great looking!!

| Cynthia T. 14-11-2020 18:48

Perfect for horse barn work and riding !

| alan l. 12-11-2020 18:20

Great product; lightweight and warm. Fits true to size. Well placed pockets.<br />It's just what you expect from Carhartt

| Neil W. 10-11-2020 18:06

Warm - durable - good fit and logical pocket placements.

| Emily Z. 07-11-2020 16:15

This vest is exactly what I was looking for. It’s really warm, water resistant, and fits great.

| Caleb 07-11-2020 03:53

What denier is the Cordura shell fabric?

| Wesley R. 04-11-2020 17:50

It’s smaller than usual Carhartt stuff. Side pockets are weird. Almost like inside out.

| John A. 03-11-2020 17:34

Runs small. Very comfortable and warm

| Luke H. 02-11-2020 12:44

Great no complaints

| Listerpaul A. 01-11-2020 13:42

Great Carhartt vest. Comfortable and keeps you warm.

| Jim N. 27-10-2020 17:04

I would definitely recommend this jacket to anyone, I love it.

| David J. 27-10-2020 16:54

Can wear it in 20 degrees or 70 degrees and stay comfortable.

| Tom R. 27-10-2020 16:51

It is shorter that expected for a 2xl tall.

| Anthony N. 27-10-2020 14:09

Love my Gilman Vest(s), but for the money Carhart needs to update to a more premium fill like Primaloft or Coreloft like the other big boys in the game and bring back the Moss colored version. Have one for my dad and want one for myself. I'm 5' 11" , 190-200lbs, very active...I tend to lean more towards a fitted look/fit, with that said if I'm layering over a hoodie and under an active jacket I prefer the large, but if I'm just wearing over a flannel I prefer a medium.

| John T. 26-10-2020 16:54

My 2nd vest keeps me warm great to work in on leisure

| Daniel C. 25-10-2020 22:31

Light weight yet warm. I really like this vest it’s comfortable and gives you pockets for extra storage. Carhartt two thumbs up!

| Chris B. 23-10-2020 17:14

Like the look, nice and warm and functional

| mark w. 22-10-2020 16:47

Nice quality but I expected it to be thicker.

| Jacob K. 18-10-2020 18:00

Excellent!! Well made and extremely comfortable. Perfect for fall . It keeps my core warm and hot . My arms free to work hard without any restrictions. I love it . Probably will more than likely buy more .

| Mike B. 16-10-2020 00:07

I now own tow of them and they are my go to garment. The warmth combined with the unrestricted freedom from bulk is unbelievable!

| SHANTRAY R. 15-10-2020 17:13

The vest was perfect as always. My Husband has worn Carhart for over 20 years and he loves all of them.

| Ira S. 13-10-2020 17:07

Exactly what I wanted -- a quality-made quilted vest that isn't overly bulky. Perfect for fall weather. Size is spot on, and the color is great -- a dark grey that isn't quite black.

| DeForest F. 12-10-2020 16:39

This is my second vest. First was a gift from my son last year for Christmas. SO good I had to have a blue one. I bought the second one in Medium and it is more form fitting for under my jackets.

| rattlesnake 08-10-2020 17:58

super functional lightweight vest. if you require pockets inside and outside in a warmer packable vest, this is the ticket!

| Sharon M. 08-10-2020 17:26

Great looking vest. Good pocket placement. Would recommend to any buyer.

| Matthew T. 02-10-2020 20:48

Fits and looks great.

| Tomas D. 15-09-2020 18:09

More colors in high visibility please

| Amin A. 24-08-2020 18:08

Light perfect for everyday life

| FrankDux12 09-08-2020 14:45

Perfect fit, simple clean look.

| Isaac B. 28-07-2020 20:37

Great versatility for the whole year. I keep it real close during spring and fall, mainly because I can do it so easily. Its quick on and off with enough style to use it for stepping out with the wife a few times before I inevitability get ( too much ) paint or wet cement on it. Keeps you prepared without bogging down space or time.

| Jeff C. 26-07-2020 17:15

I’m 6’2”. Husky guy. This fits great.

| Rey L. 19-07-2020 20:12

It’s warm and comfortable. Perfect!!

| Eliyh D. 18-06-2020 22:43

It’s great so far. Best outerwear I’ve bought for a long time.

| Lucas A. 04-06-2020 05:16

Great look and very comfortable! Very happy with this vest

| Robert S. 31-05-2020 00:44

Great vest, fits great and is perfect for late spring weather.

| jessanne s. 18-05-2020 16:57

Amazing best, light weight, durable and best for layering.

| Fred 10-05-2020 11:42

The vest is exactly what I wanted and received it when promised! Fits and looks very nice!

| 9outof10mms 06-05-2020 15:34

This vest is WARM! I have other fleece vests, but not any other insulated ones. This thing will make you sweat if you don't really "need" to wear it! I have other thinner vests that become an every day layer during the winter. This vest can't do that--it can only be worn when you really need some more warmth! That's a good thing, not a complaint. I wish the material was a little more quiet as it tends to make "swoosh" sounds easily when you rub an arm or something against it. There are a few little strings that have come from the poly fill through the stitching, but they're hardly noticeable and don't affect the function of the vest.

| Robert K. 02-05-2020 16:57

Great look

| trevor b. 25-04-2020 16:56

So far very disappointed....still waiting for my order to arrive

| Joshua G. 21-04-2020 19:03

Lightweight, warm, and easy to layer. Perfect for throwing over a hoodie or under a thin jacket.

| jerry b. 11-04-2020 12:10

just what I wanted, especially inside pockets......

| John T. 26-03-2020 18:09

I like the vest very well. My old Carhartt vest has a bit shorter collar which I like better.

| RICHARD C. 10-03-2020 20:15

The vest looks good, fits good and provides the right amount of warmth on cool days/evenings.

| Barry H. 10-03-2020 17:01

Very nice/light weight<br />Surprised it runs a little small<br />I sent it back

| John H. 28-02-2020 18:16

This is my second Gilliam Vest. This first was given to me as a promotional gift from a company I work closely with. I wore it for two years before buying a new one. I only bought a new one because I lost weight and the old one didn't fit anymore. Its still in great shape, just too big for me. I wore it fishing, hunting, hiking, working, camping etc, and it held up incredibly well! Phenomenal quality!!! Good job Carhartt!

| Michael G. 26-02-2020 21:32

Overall good best but in hindsight should have bought the jacket instead just my humble opinion

| Nancy T. 20-02-2020 18:21

Looks great

| Ray D. 20-02-2020 17:42

I love it I’ve been looking for something like this for a while I wear to work keeps me warm not too hot not too cold

| Allan T. 17-02-2020 14:43

It fits perfect, keeps me warm but yet I don't feel like I have on to much. Anyway I am a customer for life.

| Wesley G. 06-02-2020 19:57

Comfortable, light and warm, good for a business casual look

| Rae V. 03-02-2020 19:16

Ordered for our son, he mentioned that he might like a vest. He had never worn one. He decided he liked it. He has the jacket in the same color which he really likes. So now the vest is part of his wardrobe.

| Sean M. 30-01-2020 23:51

The vest is made well, I like the vest because it is form fitting and not bulky

| Richard H. 29-01-2020 20:41

I should have returned it and went up a size.

| Edward H. 25-01-2020 21:58

This vest is everything they said it would be and I am highly satisfied. Perfect fit, I'm 5'4 with broad chest and shoulders so I ordered 3x which was on target. lightweight and not bulky. I could sleep in it.

| Patricia H. 23-01-2020 01:26

Would recommend. Looks great on him.

| Scott 21-01-2020 23:30

I loved it very light weight

| Michael Z. 19-01-2020 23:39

Warm but thin and ready for layering. Great vest

| Sean F. 19-01-2020 21:58

very nice vest. runs a little large. keeps warm well

| Mike G. 18-01-2020 12:20

Nice and warm. Fits great and doesn’t limit range of motion in your arms so you can perform any type of work.

| A Wats 16-01-2020 17:45

I love this vest. It’s essential in layering with this WNY winter. Thanks again Carhartt

| Grand 12-01-2020 00:58

Excellent Product! Highly recommend. I vary in size between Medium and a Large, but glad I got a large based on others reviews. Very technical when it comes to pockets. 3 snap and 2 zipper storage pockets.<br />Excellent material. Love the fleece type products at the neck.<br />Only improvements would be:<br />Fleece type lining in hand pockets <br />Make hand pockets zippered<br />Charge a bit more and make insulation. Goose down.<br />Excellent work Carhartt

| scott t. 11-01-2020 19:36

Comfortable and fits well.....and keeps you warm. Only have been able to wear it a couple of times...

| Dillon B. 09-01-2020 19:01

As good as any similar vest from other brands but at a fairer price.

| Joshua M. 09-01-2020 18:33

The vest was way too big (wide) for me so sizing was an issue. Obviously made for beefier guys. Length was good. Liked the metal zipper for durability and overall light weight for layering. Had to return because of size.

| Nitin D. 05-01-2020 15:02

Exactly what I wanted. Lots of pockets- 1 inside zippered plus 1 outside zippered. It is light and warm!

| Kenny 03-01-2020 19:09

Recieved my gilliam vest today. If your looking to layer this is it.

| MICHAEL L. 03-01-2020 01:44

Perfect fit for a perfect guy.

| Bill C. 02-01-2020 18:59

Lightweight but warm. Perfect to just put on over anything. Great fit.

| arthur m. 02-01-2020 18:50


| Liza C. 30-12-2019 04:23

Very nice! My husband loves that it's light but keeps the cold air out. We'll definitely buy again.

| Ana M. 25-12-2019 22:29

Love it! Fits true to size, very comfortable and durable!

| MrsCampos 24-12-2019 04:31

Absolutely life this vest, lightweight but still warm and cozy!

| Stephen R. 23-12-2019 16:57

I lost 60 pounds and now have to start replacing clothes that no longer fit. I am happy to say that the product has remained the same over time. Good! I have a few more items to replace a few more items and hope that the others remain the same.

| Carolyn B. 16-12-2019 20:45

Perfect vest for layering!

| Kristi G. 16-12-2019 16:16

My Son loves the vest, very warm, light weight, and looks great on him. Also, his last name is Gilliam!

| joel g. 14-12-2019 17:56

Definitely would recommend

| Richard C. 10-12-2019 18:28

comfortable warm easy to zip.

| BRAD N. 07-12-2019 20:43

Nice vest, very happy with it.

| amy k. 07-12-2019 20:15

Christmas Gift

| Daniel M. 06-12-2019 18:19

Excellent fit, extremely warm for being as light as it is. I'm 6-foot and 185 lb and I wear a medium, fits perfectly.

| Michael S. 05-12-2019 20:45

Great vest. would prefer zipped pockets instead of snaps

| Johnna O. 04-12-2019 18:01

I also own the Gilliam Jacket and it fits well but the vest fits much smaller in the stomach area and is shorter in the front.

| Richard S. 02-12-2019 17:45

Nice for casual settings.

| Patrick T. 27-11-2019 18:04

Just what I was looking for!

| Steven B. 25-11-2019 19:22

Size is perfect, very comfortable. Like it very much.

| Bruce K. 22-11-2019 22:57

Runs exceptionally small

| clifton t. 20-11-2019 05:10

I love my gillian vest. This vest is light weight , but is perfect for layering. It's very stylish , and warm alone. EZ to layer with a coat or jacket. Also has the adjustable waist bungee cord. I would purchase again without a doubt.

| Tyler M. 18-11-2019 18:11

Lightweight not big and bulky keeps me warn

| Craig S. 16-11-2019 15:49

It’s too small. My other Carhartt items are XL and they fit fine but this XL is too small. Not sure why? I would recommend ordering a double XL if you usually order XL

| Scott S. 16-11-2019 02:03

I love the vest. Nice technical features like all the pockets with different closures and the fleece inside the collar is great. I use mine for cycling in cool weather in Northern CA.

| Whitney W. 15-11-2019 22:14

This is a favorite. My hubs has 3 different colors!

| Tania S. 10-11-2019 19:31

Runs small..... Can't wear it with warm clothing..... Would like too exchange it but was told if the tags are removed I can't

| TIMOTHY H. 08-11-2019 23:15

Best vest I have it keeps me warm and generates heat

| Jackson W. 07-11-2019 19:15

It’s a great vest! I unfortunately ordered black and a dark green arrived. Will enjoy the color anyways, just thought you should know

| Kyle D. 06-11-2019 20:39

Very warm, comfortable design which includes many pockets.

| Rachel P. 06-11-2019 15:11

Just bought this vest for my husband. He loves it. It keeps him warm without getting to hot. He normally gets a small in Carhartt but got a medium in this vest

| Amanda D. 29-10-2019 16:41

My husband loves it.

| Marc S. 28-10-2019 20:34

I like the product, but the 2xl is to small. Should have got the 3xl. I will be sending the one I received back. I'm able to wear it.

| Nicholas A. 28-10-2019 19:12

Excellent vest, one of the best I've ever owned, very very light and comfortable but surprisingly warm when it's cold.

| J M. 28-10-2019 12:00

Great looking and perfect fit!

| swan92 25-10-2019 16:50

if your looking for a flexible, usable layer this one is perfect. weather it be to work or hunting I always have this in my truck it literally weighs nothing and looks great even after being pushed in my backpack for day. If you are looking for one to work in this is not the one the outer material wouldnt sustain much work before tearing.

| Jake K. 20-10-2019 18:34

Perfect fit

| Jeremy F. 09-10-2019 00:28

I consistently wear a large in everything, but the large I ordered was too big, especially through torso. I really liked the vest though but had to return it. Like other reviews, the collar is a little high.

| Tracey O. 08-10-2019 23:56

nice light vest to wear under a heavier jacket. can layer up or layer down

| Vanessa R. 05-10-2019 20:31

Light weight and comfortable.

| Rasheed L. 21-09-2019 18:06

I thought it would be thicker, more insulated still nice just not sure really worth the $ I spent. Time will tell.

| Aaron E. 12-09-2019 17:21

Fits great, far warmer than I would have anticipated.

| Jonathan H. 11-09-2019 18:29

2 Thumbs up! True fit size

| Tuc0 01-09-2019 14:47

I bought a Carhartt Gilliam jacket for myself and liked it so much I bought one for my brother. He likes it a lot as well. So decided to give a vest a try. I don't usually were vests and haven't worn this as much as I have the jacket version. But - this is just as nice of a warmth layer as the jackets. Nice, nice quality. Same fit and finish. I usually wear it with a Carhartt long sleeve t-shirt under it. Has the same handy zippered side chest pocket which I really like. Edging on neck and shoulders is a very soft and nice material. Would really like to see the hooded Gilliam jacket offered again.

| Nate Z. 12-08-2019 15:57

I was able to pick this up on one of the season sales and couldn't be happier about it. Great for the fall or layered under the jacket in the winter.

| Robert F. 29-07-2019 17:26

I liked my first purchase so much I bought another in a different color

| Andrew 25-07-2019 00:39

Great light weight vest.

| Kindra M. 19-07-2019 05:43

Good vest for layering and for spring and fall camping, fishing, and hunting. Also very durable with the cordura fabric.

| Chris K. 06-07-2019 22:10

Love this vest. Very light weight. I use it in the warm months to jog in the morning to keep my core warm and sweat away that mid section. Looking forward to using it in the fall and winter. I am a vest guy and I love this one!

| William D. 29-05-2019 13:54

Perfect for winter golf in South Carolina and spring fishing in Maine.

| will g. 10-05-2019 16:21

Great vest for sprint and fall use. Long sleeve shirt fits great under vest. It gives you room to move around will working.

| Gretchen D. 03-05-2019 18:31

love puffy layers and there versatility but often destroy them due to my life activities and work. This balances light weight, style and function without looking like i am always logging... but it seem like it could stand a day in the brush and branches.

| Lauren H. 30-04-2019 19:36

Great material, perfect fit. 100% ordering again

| Chad K. 26-04-2019 17:46

It was to small had to return it

| Edward B. 21-04-2019 22:17

Nice light weight vest that looks and feels good, but also privde warmth.

| David D. 18-04-2019 22:57

I love the vest (the style

| MICHAEL V. 15-04-2019 17:48

Nice fit true to size. Like the extra length and longer in the back. Definitely not disappointed when arrived

| Jeremy M. 15-04-2019 04:00

Good quality vest. 10/10 would recommend

| Adam J. 10-04-2019 16:59

Excellent vest. Warm, rain resistant, and rugged. Perfect fit.

| Hilton H. 07-04-2019 18:46

Great style and fit is perfect.

| Josh S. 01-04-2019 14:21

Runs a size too large.

| Rafe M. 31-03-2019 16:30

I have tried Duluth Vest, Ariat Vest, and this is now my favorite. It is light weight but keeps the core warm in the Cold Colorado mornings.

| Laura M. 27-03-2019 18:02

This is my husband's 3rd vest. He likes this vest so much he keeps one for working in his shop, one for driving his Road Tractor and one for good. I also have one that I wear when I go grocery shopping or to work. They are lightweight, plenty of pocket room and a chest pocket for a cell phone. These have been some of the best clothing purchases I have made. I definitely would recommend this vest.

| Sam J. 22-03-2019 22:25

I looked long and hard for a good vest I could wear to the construction site in the spring in fall without looking too out of place if I walked into a business lunch with it still on. I looked at a variety of different brands and eventually settled on this one. Couldn't be happier. The vest is thin and lightweight without sacrificing warmth or durability. I can tell the snaps on the front pockets and zippers throughout the rest of the vest are high quality. I also get the feeling that it was designed by someone who's first priority was to make a piece of clothing that is functional and that shows when you wear it. The waterproof fabric is nice both because it doesn't soak up water but also because it seems to be a bit more durable that the fabric that other companies would use. I definitely recommend.

| Jeremiah B. 16-03-2019 23:09

Great vest, runs small

| CharlesNicholas P. 15-03-2019 18:23

Exemplary. Definitely recommended

| Jeff B. 12-03-2019 01:53

It’s great!

| Stan W. 10-03-2019 19:54

Fits a bit snugger than the Gilliam jacket of the same size, but otherwise works great. Does a good job shedding water and dirt

| VERONICA 07-03-2019 00:40

The Gilliam vest gives a very nice appearance and looks to be very well made. I was disappointed in that it is thin and would not provide the warmth that I was looking for. I found a similar vest made by a popular outdoor sports wear company that was insulated with down on sale for only $15 more and with free shipping. I ordered their large size which turned out to be 1 inch longer than the Gilliam that I ordered in a large tall. Needless to say, I'm returning the Gilliam.

| dan w. 05-03-2019 04:00

was looking for something light , comfortable and versatile , this it , am very pleased with it

| Michael F. 28-02-2019 20:03

Light weight, comfortable, and warm. Exactly what I was looking for, however, I would replace the snaps on the pockets with zippers to better secure valuables.

| ALEX I. 28-02-2019 01:56

I love this vest. It fits and looks great. It is comfortable and warm. I receive numerous complements every time I wear it.

| Rick W. 26-02-2019 17:23

works great. nice vest to wear everyday. true to size

| Ellen B. 21-02-2019 16:35

My son is a first repsonder and he lives in his vest.

| JOSEPH W. 18-02-2019 02:11

Nice vest. Glad I bought the tall as I am 6’2”. Only thing I would change is to add a zipper to the main pockets and have a little more insulation. Sizing was accurate.

| Matt P. 17-02-2019 19:04

Great fitting vest. Nice enough to wear out but still able to do some work. Functional features are nice

| Krystal W. 15-02-2019 18:33

Defiantly not what I expected it to be for the price

| Kevin C. 11-02-2019 23:16

Light weight, fits great under or over other garments. Gives that little extra bit of warmth with out being to bulky. Would recommend.

| Sterling C. 11-02-2019 17:18

I wear one almost everyday, have all the colors. The weight, fit, and style are outstanding. <br />

| Craig W. 08-02-2019 15:25

Perfect vest for the fall and spring or to layer in the winter. lt is lightweight and warm.

| Dovran O. 04-02-2019 18:33

Neck collars are little long.

| Wilson A. 02-02-2019 18:59

Good quality and luck nice

| Aaron W. 02-02-2019 18:39

Temperatures are currently in the single digits here in Alaska. Vest is perfect. Warm and protective against the winds.

| Kory K. 02-02-2019 04:45

I returned it. Paid nearly half the price of the vest just to ship it back and have not been credited for it yet. It’s been over two weeks. Free shipping on returns would have been great. I canceled a huge order because of it.

| Servando S. 26-01-2019 22:03

Great vest! It’s lightweight and looks good.

| Deven J. 25-01-2019 01:04

Fits awesome, feel wonderful, keep up the good work! I wish it didn’t have such a big collar on it but besides that, I love it!

| Harris M. 24-01-2019 04:34

I love these things! This one is my 2nd purchase in X-Large for wearing over bulky winter shirts, sweats, or sweaters my first was a Large for wearing under lighter weight coats. If you're looking for something light and not bulky but truly warm for layering this one is it! Looks good, it's comfy without the weight and bulk of a traditional Carhartt heavy weight work vest.

| Jonathan E. 22-01-2019 14:42

Perfect fit! Lightweight and warm. I certainly would recommend this vest to anybody that asked about it.

| G D. 21-01-2019 16:17

A Comfortable fitting vest with classic lines, an excellent value for the $$.

| Jordan S. 17-01-2019 03:13

Looks and fits great

| Amber J. 16-01-2019 23:14

Bought it for my husband and he loves the length of the XL tall thank you

| John L. 15-01-2019 02:02

Very lightweight vest, but the material seems tough. I find it to be all I need in 35-40 degree weather when paired with a flannel shirt. I’m 5’10” 170 lbs and the medium is perfect.

| Kahl1975 14-01-2019 17:24

I have one of these for myself and love it. I decided to buy my dad, brother-in-law, nephew and nephew-in-law each one for Christmas. Perfect gift! They are warm and comfortable. I'm actually buying myself a couple of more.

| Gary L. 13-01-2019 00:26

Great fit and functional keeps your core worm.

| Donna D. 10-01-2019 17:13

My boyfriend is a big guy so finding flattering functional stylish clothing can be a challenge. The vest is well made and looks great, he wears it everywhere and he is so happy and so am I. A very style conscious NYer.

| James S. 08-01-2019 19:06

I love it. It looks really great on me. It was delivered to my house the woman on the phone for car hartt tell me what day it was coming it came A-day early so that was pretty awesome. Thank you

| Ally L. 08-01-2019 17:51

I love this vest! It’s surprisingly warm and i wear it everyday over my hoodies. I wash it only with a tech wash to keep it nice and waterproofed!

| Richard T. 08-01-2019 02:29

Nice vest. Lightweight. Used if for layering under a heavier jacket and it worked well.

| Karen L. 05-01-2019 18:29

I need to return this vest as it is just a little small.

| Courtney C. 04-01-2019 23:32

Great looking best. Very warm

| Gary A. 04-01-2019 20:35

Very nice vest

| Dusty W. 01-01-2019 21:03

I like it not very heavy, comfortable and long enough to cover below waist line. great for cool weather. nice color

| Kyndal L. 01-01-2019 18:02

husband loves it!

| ROBERT S. 31-12-2018 02:46

Great feel and fit. Ordered on a Monday, at my door Wednesday noon. Great service.

| Kennedy A. 30-12-2018 21:38

I bought this vest for my Hubsand for Christmas and he absolutely loves it! Fits true to size and perfect for those days that a jacket or coat is too much! And he raves about how many pockets is has!

| Mary M. 30-12-2018 18:26

Carhartt never fails to have quality merchandise. Love it!

| Amanda S. 30-12-2018 18:25

My husband loved it. Very comfortable and well made. For it being a thinner vest, it keeps him warm.

| RogerB L. 29-12-2018 19:40

Your 2xtall Gilliam vest fits our 6’ 4” 255# son perfectly. He was pleased and so are we. Thank you for the prompt service

| Kim H. 29-12-2018 17:56

My husband loves this vest for layering as he's an electrician who works in the elements all day. It's thin enough to wear under an external layer with layers under it keeping him warm throughout the day no matter what Mother nature delivers

| Chelsey S. 27-12-2018 18:52

Love it. Light weight and comfortable!

| John H. 24-12-2018 18:43

Carhartt is always top notch clothing.

| emanuel g. 19-12-2018 18:47

I like the vest.

| David C. 14-12-2018 17:18

This vest is lightweight and perfect for wearing with a shirt when you don't want to have restricted movement with a bulky coat. The pockets are a bonus because face it, you just can't have enough pockets.

| Chris M. 12-12-2018 12:02

I’m a big fan of this vest. The rugged Carhartt durability that I have grown to appreciate has combine with a bit more of a clean and versatile offering that I can dress up or dress down. Pockets are fairly secure. Shoulder opening are fitted and comfortable. Waist is wide enough to fit most bodies very comfortably, but the overall best is not too blousy for a more tailored look.

| Tony D 11-12-2018 21:57

Was shopping around for a synthetic vest to wear under my regular jacket on really cold days. Happen to be on sale at the store while buying feed and picked it up. Really surprised on how warm it keeps your chest and neck when zipped all the way up. Like the lots of pockets too. Fraction of the price name brand "outdoor" brands. It's a keeper!

| Linda B. 06-12-2018 22:30

I bought this for my husband for xmas. He has another one from 3 yrs ago.

| Mitchell W. 06-12-2018 20:45

Extreamly comfortable, nice wind breaker and deflects moisture well!

| Eduardo L. 03-12-2018 20:00

Great vest I loved it and at a great price ! Fits perfect and is super thin but keeps you warm at the same time.

| Robert M. 02-12-2018 00:59

This is a great vest. Although it's lightweight, it is warm. It looks good. It's great for layering. It compliments the various flannels offered by Carhartt very nicely. The pockets provide ample storage. I definitely recommend this product.

| Craig M. 01-12-2018 14:33

One of my go to pieces on cold days, zippered all the way up on colder windy days or open for mild days, but either way, it does the job.

| Kelly K. 01-12-2018 04:03

I bought for my Dad for Christmas looks really good can’t wait till he can have!!

| Jennifer L. 27-11-2018 16:56

I purchased this as a gift for my husband. Very light weight and comfortable. Looks great as well.

| Vince S. 21-11-2018 18:21

Super comfortable, lightweight, good-looking, affordable and warm. 5 stars all the way.

| John G. 16-11-2018 18:47

I would definitely recommend this product. I like the feel and fit of it. Also the amount of color choices .

| Theresa R. 16-11-2018 10:39

Bought for my husband's 60th birthday and loves the fit and weight of this vest so much he doesn't want to take the vest off, Yes I said 60 not 6.

| Frank A. 13-11-2018 00:46

Great looking fits perfect!Does the job!

| Jeremy D. 12-11-2018 02:17

This vest fits great . I have worn it over flannels and provides good warmth. Looks great too.

| Matt C. 11-11-2018 12:26

great vest warm and looks great!I would recommend this vest

| Lou P. 30-10-2018 19:50

Purchased this vest last year and wear it very frequently. Liked the fit so much, I picked up the matching jacket. Would buy again.

| Alex H. 26-10-2018 17:25

I'm actually in the process of returning the vest because it is too big and doesnt fit me well.

| Richard R. 24-10-2018 15:49

Absolutely perfect. Your fitting chart was spot on. My vest fit this hard to fit body perfectly

| Joe L. 22-10-2018 19:09

I wish Carhartt made this vest in 3XL Tall

| Tyler S. 20-10-2018 17:52

A nice piece to add to my vest collection. Very comfortable

| Bryer B. 07-10-2018 01:57

Best vest I have ever had. Warm, water proof, casual but could be dressy. Love it

| Kris S. 06-09-2018 17:05

Love it, glad I purchased it

| James M. 21-05-2018 21:37

The vest will do the job for what I want it for but it is rather cheaply made. You get what you pay for

| Richard L. 28-03-2018 20:34

lightweight, not bulky , like the high collar keeps the back of my neck warm.

| Yabba 19-02-2018 23:20

love it not heavy and easy to move around in

| joann g. 09-02-2018 20:38

I purchased this vest for my son who absolutely loves it good gift for anyone. thanks lot .

| John Q. 28-01-2018 21:43

Great vest. Super lightweight but very warm. Glad I bought it and will be getting one for my dad!

| Buzzyboy 22-01-2018 20:22

I love it !! so lite you don't know you have it on, and it keeps you warm.. The size runs true.

| Brian M. 21-01-2018 20:00

Perfect fit and and a great layering piece

| Dave R. 21-01-2018 14:25

Gift to my buddy he wears medium in everything had to exchange for a large RUNS SMALL.

| Benjamin S. 20-01-2018 10:40

I bought this vest in blaze orange for quail hunting but i wear it around town as well. Good value

| Brian S. 13-01-2018 18:25

Purchased to wear under my Full Swing Cryder Jacket. Works well as an extra layer for the cold days.

| Marsha W. 06-01-2018 21:49

My husband and son love these vests! They look great and are warm. The vests were a Christmas gift and a big hit!

| David V. 04-01-2018 22:36

Nice fit and very stylish but a little on the windbreaker side and nothing more.

| Taylor G. 03-01-2018 19:10

I bought this vest for my dad last year and he wore it so much his only Christmas request was for another one this year. He LOVES it. Good price so I didn't mind buying it again, but could be a little more durable...

| Joann C. 03-01-2018 02:29

I bought two of these for my two sons. One is in a wheelchair and can't have bulky outer ware. This fits him perfectly and is thin enough but warm enough to wear without any cause of pressure sores. The other son loves his as well and it fits him great.

| Glen S. 01-01-2018 22:06

it is not what i had in mind not near heavy enough no insulation to speak of way too light

| Joseph H. 29-12-2017 18:57

It's great it just fits bigger than I expected. I was going to attempt to exchange for a smaller size the day I received it but it said no exchanges.

| Justin P. 28-12-2017 02:35

Fit is smaller than most other XLT from this brand

| Ryan W. 09-12-2017 18:30

Comfortable and I love all the pockets.

| BARTE B. 08-12-2017 14:05

little bit big for a 5’3

| Maria C. 07-12-2017 22:08

I love it!!! Great gift!

| Jorge L. 01-12-2017 00:23

The vest is light and durable. Keeps me out of the wind while staying reasonably warm.

| Joshua F. 11-11-2017 19:14

Fit great. Very comfortable

| Frank M. 08-11-2017 20:38

I'm 6'3" 350lbs. The vest I purchased is 3xl. It is a perfect fit. I cant stand the restriction on my arms that a bulky jacket creates. I bought this vest to wear underneath a fleece jacket. It dipped to about 38 degrees two weeks ago, and hovered in the mid 40s all day. I had to remove the fleece and just wear the vest which kept my core really warm. If you're working.....the vest alone is enough to keep you warm on cooler days.

| CRAIG D. 08-11-2017 20:01

Perfect for my job as a County Park Ranger in California. Fits great and is comfortable.

| John S. 05-11-2017 22:14

Fits as expected. A nice lightweight vest. Iâ??m 6â??2â?? and can pull of a medium easily enough. I like clothes that fit close to the body and a medium fit my frame perfectly. Itâ??s lightweightamd a great layer for over a flannel for the Northern Michigan Autumn Days. Easy to layer underneath a jacket as well.

| Tony L. 23-10-2017 20:46

Looks fits and feels awesome! Everything I have grown to expect from Carhart products

| Ed O. 28-09-2017 21:35

Like it, fits well and is very light weight

| Shane B. 26-09-2017 20:08

Great price for a durable and sharp looking vest. Ordered my normal size and it fits great.

| Bob P. 19-08-2017 18:54

It's a great vest

| Dennis A. 31-05-2017 18:52

Arrived torn, fabric lightweight and cheap not what I have come to expect with carhartt.

| Young Ben 19-05-2017 13:58

Perfect weight and fit, extremely comfortable.

| Thomas K. 12-04-2017 13:05

Lightweight, and just right for a time when you need to cover your upper body while wearing a long sleeve t-shirt. Fits just right, and like the material.

| R n. 04-03-2017 18:00

Good vest<br />Light vest<br />No words<br />Total nice

| Karl L. 02-02-2017 22:21

The fabric is a tight weave that is not prone to snagging. The finish is water repellent. The pocket layout and design is functional. It is surprisingly warm considering how thin it is. It adds warmth with very little bulk. It is perfect for those who utilize the Layering Principle for versatile comfort in changing conditions. The Hi-Viz orange is appreciated on job sites. A version in Hi-Viz Lime Yellow needs to be added to the lineup.

| zachary h. 02-02-2017 18:16

Awesome layer piece. Feels windproof.

| fallguy 18-01-2017 03:50

| Edward P. 16-01-2017 20:30

It arrived on schedule and is warm while be light weight.

| Devin D. 16-01-2017 18:25

As with virtually all the products I own from Carhartt, the quality is excellent and it provides a rugged style and fantastic durability.

| Erin H. 04-01-2017 19:50

My husband is 6'4" and I ordered an XL Tall - fits perfectly!! Vest fits great and he loves it.

| Kelsie R. 30-12-2016 19:17

Bought two, one for my brother in law and one for my husband. They both haven't taken them off. Very well made but not too puffy like other north face vest. They said they can still move very well but they're very warm. I'm very happy with my purchases! A large was perfect, they are both 6 ft tall and the length is great

| Brian M. 26-12-2016 23:12

It was a goft for my husband. It fits him perfecly. Shipping was very fast considering it was during the holidays. Item as described- fit, quality, and light weight. Excellent product.

| Tom 23-12-2016 18:52

The vest fits fine. It is what I expect from Carhart

| Russ H. 20-12-2016 23:36

The Gilliam Vest I ordered is an excellent work garment and lives up to Carhartt standards. I would recommend the Gilliam Vest to anyone who wants a great daily-wear vest.

Didn’t know I was a vest person til I got this bad larry. Worn it almost every day this past year. Fits under or over any layer I want, great pockets and keeps me toasty. I’m wearing the vest right now as I write this. Get you one!

I love my Rain Defender Vest! It seems true to size. I teeter between L and XL range, so I went with XL so I could layer it on top of other clothes. I used to not be a vest guy, but I love finding reasons to wear it now!

I had been on the fence about purchasing this vest but I am sure glad I finally pulled the trigger. It pairs well with any type of layers and is very comfortable and certainly durable out in the field.

originally saw this vest at a retailer but they didn't have the correct size. Carhart sizing tools worked perfectly. very happy thus far. works well as a base layer and looks great for a walk in the woods or out fishing.
