Rated 5 out of 5 by hkbinsf Great Puffer, runs a bit snug
I ordered XS in dark cranberry. I am 5'6". 120 lbs, slim body. It is more like a dark brown with a shadow of burgundy and it is shiny but not too overwhelming. It is soft and feel comfortable and will keep you warm in fall. If wearing it with open front, it fits great and good length, not long or short. But if zipping up, I feel tight. I would rather feel loose especially when I wear thicker sweater in Winter, so will return and reorder size S.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Penny Really Pretty Vest!
This vest is so pretty. I got the cranberry color. I found that I had to size down one size, although I typically have to size down with J. Crew clothing. I am usually an 8 or a medium, but frequently wear a size 6 in J. Crew. My J.Crew tops vary between mediums and smalls. I ordered a small in this vest. (I am 5'4, 130 lbs., 34C.) I can't wait to wear it when the weather cools down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by VondelPark Great winter layer!
I bought this in the Alhambra Green, which is a lovely, dark teal green color (shown accurately online). It fits snugly in my usual size, but the salesperson said that was OK because the down fill will shrink a bit, making the vest a little bit larger as time goes by.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MeMarie Fell in love when I tried it on in-store!
I've always wanted a puffer vest but wasn't sure if it would be "practical" in that it's like a coat without sleeves. Boy was I wrong! Perfect for fall weather as it keeps your core warm and toasty. I tried the blue (in xxs, my usual size) with a button up shirt underneath and I found it to be super cute and cozy as well. No regrets!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Queenie Cold weather fashion vest
I purchased this vest in a large first in the pretty new aqua blue shade, only to feel it made me look too broad. The color even though pretty, only works with grey bottoms, so I determined it was not a workable color in my wardrobe and exchanged it for the medium wine shade.
This color is much more wearable as it works with blacks, and browns..
The medium however is cut too small in the chest, so it was returned not like the fit in previous years ...I own many J Crew down vests from years past and have been extremely happy with them, but this year the fit is off, not only on this item but many of the tops in the fall assortment.
Part of holding onto repeat customers is establishing consistency in fit....J .Crew has a way to go in this category.
