This product is sold in men’s alpha sizes, so you choose the size you normally wear in men’s clothing. Below is a chart offered by Scorpion that you can use to pick a size if you know your suit coat size or chest measurement. Keep in mind that this product is intentionally close fitting so that it will work under another jacket. If you are between sizes I’d recommend going up. If you like loose fit clothing and plan to wear this a lot as a casual item, then you may wish to go one size larger than recommend. Max belly sizes are about 4” smaller than the chest size shown, so if you have a belly, make sure you choose a size so that your belly is not larger than the chest size shown minus 4”.
Our Two Cents
The Thermoshell Fusion Vest is Scorpion’s newest idea. It’s an insulated vest that is intended to be worn under a protective jacket, but is stylish and could be worn alone. This would be great for somebody who does not have a thermal liner or someone who wants to pack light and have an insulated vest that could serve a dual purpose. The Fusion vest is cut slim enough to be worn under a jacket and has finished seams which look good worn alone. This vest has a waterproof membrane in the middle of the torso (not sure how that could be useful on a garment with no sleeves, but there you go). You also get some extra storage with two outside pockets and two inside pockets, plus reflective panels on the front and the back. For a closer look, take the “View Larger Pictures” link above.
