It's shapeless and bulky, especially when the pockets are filled, but it serves the purpose it was made for. I would like to say it's perfect, but the shoulder seams are extremely long. I should've shortened it by about 1" in order for it to fit her narrow shoulders. But she's very happy with the space around the bottom and the many pockets on the inside.
Here's a picture of a detail I place on the back.
And a view of the inner pockets on the left side. I made the eye glasses pocket horizontal, with it half sewn across the top. You can see my glasses peeking out. The right side is similar, except there is a pen pocket and no chest pocket. She requested separate pockets to fit her travel wallet, passport, eye glasses on one side, credit cards, camera, and other "stuff" on the other. It also has inseam pockets on both sides.
I think I'd rather carry a bag than wear a vest as bulky as this... but I'm sure it works for her. She's been traveling for many years and knows what she wants!
