This is my second Nuptse vest , this one is a nice Vest, Very warm and strong! By Far the best out door vest out there! I live in Oregon and spend a lot of time outdoors and i Love the big neck on this vest! How ever.... in this vest the choice of pocket liner is poor. finger nails got caught trying to get my hands into the pockets. also it runs small so i had to send it back to get the larger size. Backcountry is totally cool with their returns, so it worked out well. If you need a long lasting vest that will stand the test of time ... this is the one to get!
