Very good vest , I wear it several times a week, the fit Is very good and true to size I am about 5 7” 150 lb check out size small if similar build recommended
I bought both the John Ownbey woodland woobie vest and a woodland woobie jacket. After a snafu with my initial order, McGuire Army/Navy sent me corrected order which arrived pretty fast. I have to say that I absolutely love both the vest and the jacket. Neither are lined. I also never thought camo could present a sharp looking appearance but these items seem to be the exception. I own the Rothco versions of these garments. I can honestly say that the JO ones are much better unless you have a gut. The XL JO vest and jacket would be the equivalent of medium sized Rothcos. These are not heavy weight so they probably wouldn’t work as stand alone outerwear in temps below 50 degrees.
Both JO garments seem to be slim fit so thankfully I took the advice of other reviewers and sized up. For reference, I’m 5’10” and weigh about 200lbs. I normally wear a 44R sport coat and float between a L and XL depending on the manufacturer. The XL fit in both of these items fit perfectly when worn over a long sleeve henley. I’m planning to pick up more of each in other colors.
When I first enlisted I was issued a wooby vest. Unfortunately, CIF stole it from me. Luckily for me this vest is everything that my old vest was. I’m 5’7, 165 and the medium fit perfect. Looking forward to using it again during the colder months.
A little snug but just a perfect fit. A way late item receiving it, however, this was due to the Postal Service and not McGuires Army/Navy. They honored a refund and I will call to have them retake the amount proper. Thanks guys! 👍🏼
