Woobie Vest way to small

I ordered this vest in a large and couldn't even button it. I have a 44" chest and no gut. The quality of the vest is fine, but sizing was way off. I passed it down to my 140lb brother.

Solid performing vest made in the US

Was looking for a vest to wear under my Gore-Tex running jacket and was in need of something with pockets that would fit my cell phone. The Woobie Vest fit the bill nicely, plus unlike many other variants out there, the Woobie Vest is US made. It is snug, so order up if our looking for a more baggie fit. Love the light weight, the pockets and very satisfied with it. Its survived two washings and multiple outings.

Thermal vest

Perfect for working outdoors in New England. It’s layered with a sweater over it. No bulk or loss of mobility.

Great Vest for the Price

Here is some sizing info, I bought a medium vest and the pit-to-pit chest measurement is 42.0" the length is 27.5" that's from the top of the jacket to the bottom. The width is straight from the chest to the waist so no extra room for the stomach. I wear medium in most brands so these measurements falls within that sizing, it's probably a trim or straight fit for some other brands. The jacket has some loose and non-consistent stitching but I'm not sure I can complain for something that is $30, new and made in USA. Buttons are nice and big and this vest can be layered or wore on its own. Glad I picked one up and hoping that sizing info help. I would guess each size up or down would add 2" to those measurements, so a 44" chest for L.
