Colour Name: CHOCOLATE BROWNSize: 14
Bought this vest in the chocolate brown - stunning deep colour! Very warm and soft to the touch. Fits very well - true sizing at last! My wife has the nuptse but this is softer and more luxurious!

Colour Name: Jet BlackSize: Size 16 Verified Purchase
On the whole pleased with this purchase. Very warm, light, quick and easy to slip on; also 'crushable' into a bag without spoiling its appearance. Only drawback is that the sizing is not very generous. I would normally buy a 14 but ordered a 16 so that it could be worn over a thick sweater but found that it is rather too tight for this purpose. Maybe I should have returned it and re-ordered an 18 but . . .!

Colour Name: Jet BlackSize: Size 16
This body warmer is excellent...very light but the heat retention is amazing. Went on a cruise on the Seine in Paris recently, and, whilst others had coats on, I wore this and never felt cold. Would highly reccommend it.

Colour Name: Bright FuchsiaSize: Size 14 Verified Purchase
I love the gilet. It is a gorgeous colour and well made. People have admired it already! It will certainly keep me warm on cooler autumn days and is a good base layer under a heavier jacket in the winter months. I have been looking out for a gilet like this for a while and thought it was a decent price. I would recommend it to anyone. The material is so soft and the pockets are a decent size. Just wish I could afford another one in a different colour!

Colour Name: Jet BlackSize: Size 14 Verified Purchase
Well made with lovely soft fabric which is not too noisy. Lovely and long in the torso (i'm 6ft) and the scoop back on the bottom is ideal for stopping drafts or unsightly butt cheek display. Not too bulky and I would say true to size leaning on the roomier side. I go between 14 - 16 M - L's depending on brand. If you plan to only wear thin shirt underneath I would probably say go size smaller so it's fitted (still nicely roomy) but if you want to layer underneath or like the option than get your usual size. Ideal value for the brand - Amazon is about 50% cheaper than anywhere else online and then I picked up and extra 20% saving so for @£33 for down fill and brand quality it was a super buy.

This is a well made garment - as expected from Berghaus. It is quite puffy, but compresses easily and springs back again - (I sometimes wear a waterproof over the top). It is like wearing a weightless duvet all day. I bought my daughters the Landsend 600g Down gilets as these were too large for them, but they don't come close for softness nor warmth.
Great value and essential for me in Aberdeen, Scotland.

Colour Name: BlackSize: Size 12 Verified Purchase
Delivered fast, lovely and soft / cosy / warm. Love the high collar which is great for keeping out drafts. Easy to slip in over sweaters, works well as an extra layer under other coats.

Also ordered a size 14 (to check the sizes) which I returned - but had to pay £5.20 postage - a bit steep! The size 12 was described as black, size 14 jet black - both the same (a good black).
