I wore my down vest for the first time yesterday, and found it to be great. It fits true to form, although I could have probably gone down a size just to get a tighter fit (and hence warmer ) around the torso. I love the color and styling of it, however, given I got the white color, I would be hesitant to go travelling or camping in it. The fur inside is a plus, making it enjoyable to pull on and increasing the warmth. It has a toggle/drawcord on either side of the bottom to stop any drafts from getting up and under.
