      COMMENTS:

      I'm mostly disappointed in this because I hoped it could replace the older nylon working man's vest which was a great product-why they discontinued it I do not know. I have a lightweight working man's vest(meh) and had a fire hose one years ago. I prefer heavier weight nylon like this vest but the pockets on this one just do not cut it. Chest pockets should handle a larger cellphone with ballistic case better. Why aren't there pencil pockets on the left side - at least 2 better to handle 3. There is one on the far right- what is up with that? Need more inner pockets like a working man's vest. I really like the pockets on a SCOTTeVest but the nylon is to light weight, great for commuters not for tough outdoor work. Come on Duluth we count on you to make a vest that truly suits a modern worker.

      Bigger breast pocket that would fit an iPhone 6 and fully zip up - ear phone jack similar to the full size jacket.

      COMMENTS:

      I agree with another reviewer, vest sticks out sometimes when standing or sitting in the most weird way. My biggest whine is this vest is a second generation item. My friend bought the version when they were first released. It is head and shoulders better. The item I like the most it that the bottom pockets due a decent job of carrying either a M&P Shield or a 3' 1911 without a holster

          I just recieved the jacket seam to light.i ordered a different vest 3x too big this one is belly tight and i have a 2 in stickout sitting in the middle across belly.the pocket that zips should be deeper.the inside pocket the same.too small for most things..you couldnt fit much in those pockets.it is nice looking before i tried it writting this.i was going to give to my son but i know he would feel the same.yes it is ok warn.stictching good.maybe if i wear it for a while it will relax.usually tshirts run big other vests too.not this one.see picture.ive never had a jacket bunch like this one.i paid full price but its not the money .25 less today would still feel same.its more for a skinny person. Its a big return to Duluth. No good for a belly.
