I generally find even the softest wool products too itchy. The lining in this vest makes it both warmer and wearable. Being a vest makes it great for layering. I'm 6' so another inch in length would be great but it's comparable to other vests.

A minor quibble is that it has a left-handed pull (European style) zipper that takes some getting used to.

I also found the opening for the pockets to be too small to get my hands in without a struggle and they are bit akwardly placed (front-facing) to serve as hand-warmers anyway.

Wool quality is good. I am 6'0" & 185 lbs. Med. fits nice and snug. IPhone zips securely in breast pocket.

Front pockets are very small and are not 'hand warmers.'

A few simple design changes and it would be outstanding:
Slash pockets on front that accommodate hands, with wool or cashmere lining. (Get rid of existing front hand pockets; keep breast pocket.)
Suede arm pit and pocket trim.
A bit heavier wool.

A tiny bit disappointing

Comments about Scottish Wool Travel Vest:

Polyester lining makes subtle crinkling sound and makes this more like a jacket than sweater. Cut and tailoring isn't as crisp as I like. Medium is a tad too large, a bit saggy and could be better with a tighter wool weave. I wouldn't be so critical if it wasn't this expensive. It is a pretty unique sweater. I just expected a bit more for the price. Blue color is nice.

        The Scottish Wool travel vest lives up to its name. I have worn it almost everywhere. It's comfortable when driving,and perfect for around the house when I don't feel like turning up the heat. It looks good enough that I had no qualms wearing it to school when the heating system was not working.

          Comments about Scottish Wool Travel Vest:

          Don't understand the negative reviews. It fits right if you order the right size- I ordered my usual size and it was a perfect fit.

          The vest is warm and comfortable and breathes, so it doesn't become uncomfortably hot as you move from outside cold to indoors. Highly recommended.

            This is a warm and very comfortable vest with good and secure zipper pockets. Good looking enough to be worn out for a casual evening dining and going somewhere, yet a rugged travel vest as well. Bought this one over more traditional multi pocket travel vests which are just too casual and funky for business wear, this fits in nicely in any environment. Breathes - so is comfortable in a wide range of temperatures.

              My husband saw this in the catalog and asked for it for Christmas. The styling was great as was the construction of the vest. But, it was cut like a square and had no fitting. It just hung on him-and he's a medium. It may fit better on a larger person. It was returned. Expected something better fitting for the price.
              It would have been ideal for our "cold" weather.

                Our wearable travel system is much more than just a vest. Not only does this lightweight travel vest feature enough pockets that it virtually eliminates the need for a carry-on bag but it even labels each pocket to make packing a no-brainer. Features include a gadget pocket with a clear, touch-screen-compatible panel; a pocket to hold a water bottle; a fleece-lined pocket designed for eyeglasses; and an earphone-cord pass-through. Eleven internal pockets, plus four outside pockets. Water- and wind-resistant ripstop nylon with 50+ UPF sun guard.

                With a whopping eleven pockets, this poly/cotton poplin blend travel vest might just eliminate the need for a daypack. It blocks 98 percent of UVA/UVB rays and is treated with a stain-resistant, moisture-wicking finish, making it especially perfect for hot weather travel. An anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-microbial treatment keeps the vest fresh through long travel days, and even if the vest gets stashed at the bottom of a laundry bag for the rest of the trip. It’s quick drying though, so go ahead, wash it in the evening and hang it up—it’ll be dry by morning.

                Gentle compression of the ankle and calf can help reduce swelling when you fly, and offers support during long days of sightseeing. But many travel socks apply pressure equally from toe to cuff, which can feel restricting. Our merino wool travel socks feature gradual compression that starts at the ankle, plus they look like dress socks so you don’t have to sacrifice style for travel comfort.

                In an earlier era of heavy fiber travel clothing, Society expedition teams surely dreamed of gear like this. Made from a remarkably airy, cottonlike nylon with advanced performance characteristics and Teflon® protection, it's a quick-drying wrinkle-, stain-, and water-resistant wonder that keeps necessities close and packs away into almost nothing. Nineteen separate pockets (including a secret security pocket) can hold a water bottle, passport, travel tickets, cell phone, maps, film, and personal stereo. Complemented by camera and binocular epaulets with slip-resistant grips, adjustable side cinches, and padded shoulders. Imported. 13 oz.

                Experienced travelers know what an asset a warm vest can be during unpredictable weather. This olive micro-suede vest easily repels mist and rain while the Sherpa fleece lining keeps you warm and insulated. It's also great for exploring cities, when you'll be in and out of cafés and museums all day long. By pairing it with sweaters and base layers, you can replace a bulky winter coat and leave more room in your suitcase. Two front zip pockets and two slash pockets provide ample room to stash a wallet, a passport, or even a guidebook, and still leave room to warm your hands. Imported.

                This double-knit, 420 gram-per-square-meter Merino wool cardigan is smooth on the inside and looped on the outside for superior warmth retention and incredible comfort. It’s a perfect outer layer for autumn days, and a great middle layer under a coat. It’s also the right length to cover longer tunics and T-shirts, so you can wear a midweight jacket without inner layers peeking out. And it covers your rear view with tights or leggings, too.

                You’ll love these soft travel pants on planes, trains, and car rides, or just when running errands around town. Semi-fit with a flattering boot-cut leg, the wide 2" waistband with crossover detail at the front combines a relaxed feel with a fit that doesn’t look like pajamas. Features two inlaid patch pockets. Dense 370-gram-per-square-meter Zealand Merino/Lycra blend makes it a great cool-weather layer with just enough stretch to keep its shape for years.

                The walking sweater is a tradition in the British Isles that dates back more than a century. This classic outdoor style uses 100% Shetland wool fiber for its warmth and natural moisture-wicking properties. Built to withstand Scotland's vigorous, often fast-changing weather, it has suede patches at shoulders and elbows for durability and reduced wear and tear from backpacks or camera straps. Crafted in a 19th-century mill on the banks of the Teviot River, deep in the Scottish Borders.

                The simple design of our zip-front sweater hides a 500-year history of wool textiles in Scotland. The unique material—felted lamb’s-wool that’s softer and cozier than synthetic fleece, but with all the advantages of natural wool—is made by Lochaven in the heart of Scotland’s traditional textile district of Stewarton. Our grey-trimmed, felted lamb’s-wool sweater is soft and naturally water-resistant, both wind-resistant and breathable.
