Best Uses

    Comments about Duluth Trading Men's Lightweight Working Man's Utility Vest:

    I purchased this vest in 2013 for use as a summer storage solution. When I first started using the vest, it seemed great. The pockets held what I needed them to hold and I could fairly easily access anything I was carrying.

    However, by the next summer I had noticed a few problems. If I carried around too much weight (I would generally carry ~15 pounds of assorted gear) it would press down on my neck. Anywhere there was friction, the fabric would start to fray (especially the bottom of the cell phone pocket).

    Granted, I was using this vest while working in a steel factory where steel chips can end up anywhere for any reason. If I used the vest only for casual use, it may have lasted longer than 2 summers. If I cannot find an alternative, I'll give this vest another go.

      Comments about Duluth Trading Men's Lightweight Working Man's Utility Vest:

      I like to carry pens and keys. It is hot in Florida and I usually wear shorts and a short sleeve shirt. When I go into town, I put the vest on when I am wearing a T shirt. The only negative comment is the "cell phone" pocket is out of date - too small for the newer phones. It looks like it was designed for a flip phone. I have to carry the cell phone in one of the lower pockets.

            I am always losing little tools that I need for almost any project. The older I get the more I don''t like bending over a tool box to find it. So my little stuff goes in the pockets and I know where they are.

            Comments about Duluth Trading Men's Lightweight Working Man's Utility Vest:

            It is a great product, and is just as advertised.
            However, concerning this product, the sizing chart is difficult navigate properly.
            According to the size chart, I should wear an extra large. In my case, I should have ordered a large, and the fit would be perfect!
            I'll live with it, but I will have to wear it over a sweat shirt, or coat.

            On the other hand, it is a great utility vest, for the purchase price.
            I would recommend my friends to order one, however, I would suggest they order one size smaller than the chart indicates.

              Comments about Duluth Trading Men's Lightweight Working Man's Utility Vest:

              I was hoping for a vest that would hold my tools. But as soon as I put a couple of tools in my pocket and then bend over they fall out. I'm sure it's a great vest for paper and pencil but not professional mechanic or electrician. I should have purchased their actual tool vast but there's a big price difference in the two vests. I will continue to wear my belt for tools and only put parts in the vest.
