    I vaguely remember the women's cut AP Vest. The women's version is tapered in the waist (to give a more flattering look) and the pockets don't actually function. I could be wrong on the pockets thing. The men's cut has a bunch of buckles (on the shoulders, back and sides). I will double check mine when I get home.

    Yes there is a Men's and Women's version of the AP Vest. The Women's, like randsome01 said, is tapered in the waist (this is very noticeable), the Men's is straighter. The side cinch straps are different on both vests, the Women's is one strap on either side that is in a zigzag pattern and the Men's has three straps to each side. The pockets are functional on both vests and both have similar buckles, although the pocket configuration is different on the Women's version compared to the Men's. Another good indicator is the size, the Men's only came in Large and X-Large (I believe) and the Women's you can find in Small, Medium and Large.

    Also, I remember Oakley blowing out the last of the Women's vests at the stores for $25, but that was many years ago.

    I just saw one on eBay go for over $300! I guess that isn't too bad considering it's discontinued. I got mine at an O Store when they were clearing it out for well under retail. I guess to answer your question, whatever you are willing to pay. I mean I wouldn't pay. Check out this forum & see if anyone is willing to part with theirs.

    As I stated before, the Men's came in Large AND X-Large. The Large should work for you.
