This vest is a little long for my liking. I had it embroidered - it arrived faster than I thought it would; however, the embroidery wasn't very good quality. It wasn't worth the money to return it and have it done again. I chose white thread, but there were pieces of teal/green colored thread stuck inside the embroidery on the vest. I will probably have my items embroidered elsewhere in the future. The vest has large pockets, perfect for holding pens, penlights, scissors, hemostats, etc.
