*please ignore the messy hair and room and the fact that this isn't a real outfit! So I am 5'1 and normally fit in a M/L but to play safe I ordered the large which fits perfectly! It shipped a lot faster than I thought it would only taking 2 days! Although it has the look of being quilted it is not padded (which I personally liked) it, however, still easily keeps you warm. It is made of some polyester material which I like the feel of for this, I was truly afraid that this purchase was going to have to quickly be a return but I am so glad I was wrong. I have to say that I love this vest and my overall experience with this company! I love love love this vest and would highly recommend buying it!
