Love this vest but the zipper broke after less than a year

I bought this vest in black in January 2019. I really really loved this vest - it's the perfect lightweight addition I needed for those chillier morning runs. The reflective stripes are awesome too. However, the zipper broke way too soon, as I planned to use this vest for years to come -since I don't wear it very often, and especially with the price tag of it. I took it to a nearby alterations shop, but they wanted $49 to replace the zipper and that felt too steep after having paid about $100 for the vest. I just have a really hard time finding the perfect weight in a vest anywhere else!

I needed this in my life and so do you

I had been going back and forth on this vest for a year. It went on sale and my husband was like stop it just get the best you deserve it. I AM SO GLAD I DID! I wasn’t sure how much I would actually use it, but let me tell you - I have had it for a few weeks now and I’ve already made my money back in happiness. I’ve worn it at least twice a week this “spring”. This vest keeps me the perfect warmth in the god awful wind that is in my area, while providing breathability and really perfect mobility with the fit. I used it this morning on a 17mi run in light rain (50° temp) and wind, my core stayed warm and dry, and the vest just made me so happy. It really is the little things in life, like this awesome vest! 15/10 would recommend!

Loving the extended sizing

I got the vest in black and love it. For reference, I am 44C, 5'6, 240 lbs, size XXL top typically. I ordered a 2X & there is plenty of room to layer. I love the pockets, design and how light it is. I think Oiselle is great for getting into the extended sizing. I love their brand!

Perfect layer, wish it were higher viz

This is a perfect cold weather layer, down to 20-30 degrees, breathable with good protection from the elements. Since colder weather usually arrives with shorter, darker days, higher-visibility colors would make this vest top notch.

Perfect vest!

I had been eyeing this vest for a few seasons and I'm so happy I finally caved and purchased. I wish I had bought it sooner! It is a fantastic piece for cooler weather. It's just the right layering piece for cool days, providing a perfect amount of protection to keep my core warm and toasty. While not explicitly advertised as a waterproof, my phone stayed totally dry in the pocket when I was caught out in an unpredicted rain storm. I haven't had to use the arm band strap yet, since I've found adjusting the zipper works well to help me control my temp. Fun fact about the arm band: I find that when I slip my phone through it inside the pocket my phone doesn't bounce around while running.

Sizing: I'm 5'8" and about 155 and the large fits comfortably loosely on me, with plenty of room for layers underneath. A medium would fit my torso, but probably be just a little snug around my hips.

Nice vest

I just got this and really like it for layering during my PNW winter runs! I run at night and got the black; even with the reflective bits I kind of wish I had gotten a different color to be brighter when running at night.

Sizing info: I'm 5'7", ~175lbs, and ordered a L because I like my tops to be loose fitting (ex: I'm a size 8 in Oiselle bras but like my shirts loose, so I get 10s in most tops). The vest is maybe a bit large around the armpits for me but I don't mind the looser fit.

Great for rainy runs

I love love love this vest for it's lightweight feel but yet it kept me warm and dry on long PNW rainy runs. Fit was great. I also really liked the portability of being able to fold it up if I got too hot. Just be forewarned, read the label and DO NOT PUT IT IN THE DRYER. I accidentally did and it melted the zipper off. A very expensive mistake.

PNW must have

I recently made this purchase for the vest and SO HAPPY that I did! I got it to wear as an extra layer over long sleeves during those cooler mornings. So far it has just what I needed. I wear it over my Flyte long sleeves in 25-40 degrees; provides enough warmth and easy to take off and carry in your hand if you get too warm. I love the simple reflection elements so you can be seen in the dark; forest green is a 'beautiful color. I got a size small; I'm 120 lbs and 5' 8" fit is perfect--fitted but not tight. Will be a running staple for me this fall, winter, and spring.
