Best Travel and Outdoor Vest Yet!

WOMA members Anne Draper, Elizabeth Lanier and I just returned  from an Argentina Dove hunt accompanied by four other outdoors women. Los Chanares was our destination for a world class dove hunt, fine dining, beautiful accommodations and relaxation. I knew packing light was a must so I took my LLBean travel vest with me. This easy to pack vest is a real find. So much to share with this amazing article of clothing!  Two hidden pockets on  the left and right side of the vest’s front make securing a passport or money terrific.
The two larger pockets on outside with tortious buttons are large enough to carry your wallet, camera, etc. Here was the surprise: the right  hand pocket has a glass cleaner cloth securely tethered to the inside! Very convenient. Excellent for cleaning your shooting glasses or camera lens.  It would work for scopes too but as you know, no need for a shotgun scope!

Two small outer pockets also buttoned.  The right hand one has a slit that I found most convenient for hanging my reading glasses.  Above the left pocket is a smaller slit pocket I used for lipstick and it was deep enough that the pocket contents didn’t drop out when I bent over.

There are small  side belt straps that allow a customized fit around the waist
This great vest also has a zippered front with a button belt allowing the vest to be worn alone.  Even the arm holes are loose enough to accommodate a  shirt yet tight enough to provide coverage!
The cool cotton material is doubled though the front of the vest with a back pleat allowing easy movement.  Mesh covers the inside back the vest with an outer layer of cotton fabric providing a cool flow of air.
I wore this vest on the plane to Argentina and was thrilled with the comfort it provided. Wore it several other times sightseeing in Buenos Aires and hunting in Cordoba. The length hit me mid hip which was perfect.  Thinking it was just a good travel piece, my mind has now been expanded.  Comfortable, lots of ‘storage’ with all the pockets and a must have for any woman’s closet. I am buying another to keep at the cabin.  I don’t want to be without it!  Thanks to L. L. Bean for a great design.
