Best down I have ever owned
I bought this vest about a month ago and am totally impressed with it. It is the warmiest vest I have ever owned. Living in the hi Rockies of Colorado I am usually freezing my ass off for 6 to 8 months of the year. But a combo of this northface vest and some layering keeps me warm and toasty sans jacket. Having the option to be able to zip it into a hardshell jacket is nice but northface selection of xxl jackets for snowboarding is a bit anemic and bland. For sure a great companion for apre and partying the night away in Aspen. But a bit bulky for ridding or skiing.
