Nice vest but arm holes too tight

It is a quality vest but I was surprised at how tight the arm holes are in size medium. I am skinny and they rub and cause shirt sleeves to puff out. Because it is a practical garment I think bigger holes are needed to allow freedom of movement.

Hi Christopher, we've not had that feedback on the armholes before. Do you think a different size would help?

Lovely Item

I was very much in two minds as to whether this was ‘me’. I’m neither Casey Jones steam train driver nor Jack Russell Terrier and flat cap brigade. But hauled on over a shirt or jumper and it’s just a really nice addition to my daily wear. Under a coat in our May weather this year it provides a windproof layer. Quality of the Kromer gear seems to be bombproof and service from Natural Man friendly and helpful.

This will last a long long time

A really nice vest, it feels like it will outlast me. I'm 181cm/100kg and the XL gives me room for a shirt and fleece underneath. The service was outstanding!

Close fit

I purchased according to the size guide and expected this American garment to be generous. It isn't compared to say Orvis or Scandinavian brands. Having said that the close fitting isn't a problem for me but it could be for active outdoors men who need a bit of room. The quality is outstanding and I am sure it will last for years.
