Denim & Co. Sleeveless Utility Vest with Drawstring
good utility vest
I was happy to see this item. I needed a lightweight vest to use this spring/summer when I take my dogs to the park. This is a utility vest so don't expect the style and material to be suitable for going out or for travel. If you want a lightweight vest for going out, try A230522. This one would be good to be used for gardening, pottery, garage sales, etc. Two things I don't like about this vest are the drawstring styling and the colors available. I wish they made the style as a regular straight or semi-fitted vest. Waist drawstrings always make me look wide(r). Also, the colors are too bright for people who are not fond of girly-girly look. I wish it came in olive or moss green, khakis, or greys. Denim & Co, I wish you can make lightweight spring/summer vests in cotton/denim material with straight or semi-fitted cut. Thanks!
Nice for traveling. Fabric is odd for a vest.
I've been looking at vests like these at the various travel clothing websites for a couple of years now but they are all in the $75 range and I wasn't willing to spend that much. When I saw this one I ordered it right away. I read another reviewer who complained about the fabric. The fabric was a surprise to me too since I expected something more like heavy cotton. It is more like a windbreaker fabric with a satiny type lining. It isn't stiff and is comfortable and since I plan to use it as a travel vest the windbreaker type fabric will actually be a plus for me.
Nice and useful
I bought two in Black size large. I use them to walk the dog and run errand's in. I love pocket's so of course I love these. I am thinking of getting the pink now. Please make in more color's. As for the material, I like it because it's different and sturdy.
I love this vest. I wear it around the house all day every day. It has pokers and is perfect for keeping my cell phone handy, Kleenex and anything else I need. Great foe shopping. Very light weight and fits perfectly!
I like this vest and I think it will come in handy when I walk and need an extra layer of protection against wind and a chill in the air.
Perfect for long walks!
Love this vest! I looked for over a year for a lightweight vest to carry keys, phone, and license. This is it! Does not add weight and is waterproof. I hate to wear a jacket just for the needed pockets. Bought the marine blue which is a pretty color. Will go on waitlist for the black. Thank you Denim & Co.!!!
Good all around vest
I like this vest, since I am always cold in the weather! The extra layer works fine. I like the draw string waist and even though the arm openings are on the full side, with a sweater or a blouse with sleeves, the cut under the arms are fine. Your top fillsit in.
I also like the feel of the material. i have not washed it as of this date. I have only worn it once. Very comfortable. (I purchased the vest on black)
LIKED THE VEST, BUT NOT THE FABRIC USED!
I absolutely love Denim & Co clothing, and I have a whole closet of all different types of things from them, I loved this everything about this vest, except for the fabric used. I ordered this in the black in my normal size (2X) and the fit was perfect and it looked really cute, but I just could not get past the feeling of the fabric, it felt like rubber. I wanted to keep it and tried to like it but felt I just would't wear it, so sadly I sent it back:( Please Denim & Co, remake this vest and use a different type of fabric! Use a type of fabric that is soft and comfortable that gives a little when you move, Vs. the rubbery fabric you created this one from. It's a cute vest and I absolutely loved everything about it "EXCEPT" the fabric. Please go back to the drawing board with this design and re create it with a better fabric. This one just didn't cut it for me, sorry!
