I was looking for an upland vest that had all the features this one has: waxed cotton, roomy shell pockets, easy access game bag, noticeable but not overwhelming "orange", etc. And I liked the lines of this vest. It is very well constructed--nothing flimsy, but still very comfortable. Plus, the two rear side pockets for a water bottle and other gear are great, as are the two interior pockets plus the recoil pad pocket. So, I decided to purchase it. And here's the kicker: I'm a guy! I'm 5'11" and weigh 164#. I'm not flabby and have no gut. I ordered the XL and it fits with just enough room to wear a light jacket or a layered wool shirt, etc. It looks like neither a women's nor a man's vest. It just looks like a very fine, tailored and highly functional upland hunting vest. And because it's a European women's vest, the zipper is on the right side, i.e. "American" side, for a man. Don't let the "women's vest" cause you to pass on this one. It's a great vest and I recommend it heartily.
