I have the 2006 Vagabond. It is a good spring, summer, fall jacket, but as others have said, it is not very water proof. As for the Vest option, I have not used it as such, for it fits me too big for a vest. As a jacket it's larger, but works well. If you bought it in a snug fit size then the vest would fit like other cycling vests. Jackets and Vests are typically cut differently, as vest do not need as much girth to allow for arm/sleeve movements.
The reason I bought it was it's one of the most streetable cycling jackets available. I work down town, and although I commute to work with the Vagabond, I can wear it out side in my Business clothes with out looking too dorky. The Vest option wasn't part of the equation due purchase. I liked it as a jacket.
Now that it's winter, I use a different jacket to commute with, however I used this until mid November.
