Very good gilet
on 15 March 2014
This is a nicely made garment, at a fair price. Sizing is a bit subjective, obviously, but this fits me well when worn over a fleece; I am six feet tall and 14 stone. I have another Dickies Body Warmer in the next size down, L, which is a nice fit when worn over a winter shirt and/or a thin hoodie (different colour, I'm not that sad).
Incidentally, the Navy Blue colour is much darker (ie more pleasant) than as shown on the website illustration.
It's warm, well furnished with a good range of pockets of different shapes, sizes, some zipped, some with Velcro, and is finished much better than your typical "market stall" gilet. The zips on these type garments are sometimes dodgy, and they will get a lot of wear, but so far the Dickies zips seem to be smooth, progressive and hopefully they will last well. Not the cheapest body warmer you can buy, but probably the best one I've come across.
