Women's L.L.Bean Hi-Pile Fleece Vest is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 104.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS VEST!! I literally wear this vest every day! My house tends to be chilly, so I wear this over whatever I'm wearing and stay totally toasty warm without the bulk of heavy fleece, sweaters, etc. It's so soft and cozy and feels like I'm zipping myself up into my little cocoon of warmth! A large most likely would have fit, but I chose to go larger so that I would have the option of wearing sweaters underneath if I chose to do so. The gray is nicely neutral and goes with everything. Someone in another review mentioned that fleece was pulling out of hers. I've never had that happen, and I have 5 cats "making butter" and roaming on and off of me all the time. Totally recommend this vest!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best new fall vest I ordered the hi-pile vest in gray. The color is rich and coordinates well with black or denim - great with jeans. The fit is good, somewhat tapered and not too boxy. I find the style attractive and comfortable and expect I will get a lot of wear from this piece. I sometimes size down in Bean's fleece but would suggest ordering your regular size. Re the Bean logo - I find it unobtrusive and rather like the vintage label on outerwear.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fleece looks mangled after a month I ordered this on sale after experiencing the pullover version. I’ve worn this almost daily since I received it. It’s warm and comfortable. Within a couple weeks I noticed the fleece looked damaged in areas and thought it was just the way the fleece was laying. The fleece is starting to look tattered and mangled in areas. I will still wear it around the house to keep warm, but not in public. I did not expect the vest to look this worn with a month of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cuddly "Just Right" Layer! I have purchased 3 of Bean's Hi-Pile Fleece Pullovers (in eucalyptus, plum, and gray) and practically live in them from late fall to early spring in the foothills of NC, so I decided that the Hi-Pile Fleece Vest would be nice to have for days where a pullover is a bit "too much" temperature-wise. Just as with the pullovers, I am not disappointed with this vest! It's soft, cuddly, and warm - and the gray color looks great with just about any color tee/shirt/top I wear underneath it. Depending on the style, I normally wear XS or S in Bean's jackets, fleeces, and vests - and the Hi-Pile Fleece items seem to run a little large, so I ordered XS in this vest (same as I ordered in the pullovers), which is a perfect fit for me. I'm seriously considering ordering this vest in another color!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very soft and warm Just got mine today, it is incredibly soft, I was chilly so put it on right away, very comfortable and warm but runs large and is longer than I like, I wished they offered it in a petite.I should have read the reviews before ordering, it lacks shape and just kind of hangs like a bag, not sure why I ordered a medium, usually I get small. I am keeping it because it feels so good on and will use it to wear around the house, but thinking of ordering another in a small, I got this in the teal, the color is very nice .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved the pullover so much, I bought the vest! I have the hi-pile fleece pullover from last winter, and definitely got a LOT of wear out of it (and my kids were super jealous that I didn't get them one as well, so I bought them each one this year as a Christmas gift). The vest seems to be made from the same standards. I wear layers a lot to work, and this seemed cute to layer over a plaid shirt and jeans. I purchased the Sailcloth/Ledge, because I thought it would probably go with everything. Can't wait to wear it when the weather gets a little cooler!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fluffy and nice! A very nice fluffy but not bulky vest. Really nice for walks or riding. Pockets are good. And unlike the hi-pile fleece top, the vest is a bit longer which I really like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Soft I like the feel of the fleece. Nice and soft. Very comfortable to wear. It's great for cool weather and can be worn indoors too (I'm always cold). Fit is great. I can wear a sweater underneath. It falls to the hip line. It is exactly what I was looking for.
