    Good Vest

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: L

    I purchased this in black, size L, for my little sis & myself. It's a very warm, cozy vest without being bulky! I wear it constantly through Pennsylvania falls & winters & so does the sister. Normally, I would purchase a size M, as I like to layer underneath jackets & prefer them with a very loose fit. The L was the only size avail & I took a chance, as I'm fairly small (usually wear a 4-6 on top & a 6-8 in fitted pants)....my sister is a few inches taller, but we have the same basic build. Ended up working in our favor, as I got a great sale price & the vest does run a bit small. I can put a Northface Denali fleece under it on more mild winter days or a nice, chunky hoodie in the fall. Pocket size is generous, you can fit a bunch of stuff in the 2 outer & 1 interior pockets! I've even stuffed an envelope wallet that's made to hold an iPhone 6 plus cards, cash, etc in these pockets! The wallet is 7" long & 4" tall, as a point of reference.
    My only real complaint/issue with this vest is that the nylon outer is thin. I snagged it on something just wearing it around town & was left with a little pinhole. It was a quick fix with a stitch or 3 of waxed black thread, but it let me know NOT to wear this kicking around my dad's 130 acres of wild & wooded property or to be cautious if I do.
    No problems whatsoever with leaking down. Stays inside, right where it belongs!
    Thin nylon outer aside, I would & probably will order this in another color at some point.

    Great Vest for all seasons!

    • Size Bought: Medium

    Great Vest! I was debating the small or medium & I'm glad I went with the small. It runs true to size - a medium would have fit with a bulky shirt underneath but the small is great for tshirts/more snug long sleeve shirts. The color is vibrant & the down is filled well - not marshmallow stuffed but nice & full. I'd definitely recommend this vest!

    VERY warm, beautiful color, great vest!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I bought the vest at the end of the winter sale, so I've worn it several times but haven't taken it to the back country yet. The vest is very warm for the weather I've had it in so far, which is New Orleans late winter (40 degrees Fahrenheit).

    I got the purple (more like indigo), and it's a beautiful color. Since the color is so dark, I don't have the problem others mentioned about being able to see the darker feathers.

    Only complaint is the vest torso is pretty long, and my hips are wide, so it bunches up on top of my hips and creates a strange curve along the zipper mid-stomach. Had the vest torso length been a little shorter, I wouldn't have this problem. My torso is an average length/height. Sometimes I roll up the bottom few rows. I wore it with the tags for a day or two to figure out if I liked it. I liked it enough to keep it despite this torso/bunching up.

    Great layering piece; I wear it under my marmot M1, as well as over long sleeve shirts just for around the office on cold days.

    Can't wait to take it outdoors next winter!

    Warm hugs!

    This vest has kept me warm on a few cold mornings walking the dog, and brisk evenings in Lake Tahoe. I usually wear a S in vests, and ordered a M in this so that I can layer under instead of over. I'm 5'9", 135#, 34" chest, and can wear a base layer and sweater underneath without a problem. It is a bit boxy, but that's ok with me because of the layering. If you want fitted, order your regular size. The yellow vapor is more of a gold-mustard color, not bright yellow as pictures.

    I have used this vest as an extra layer over my fleece during the school year as well as in the backcountry. It is a must-bring whenever I'm packing and it magically fits with everything! A slightly more reasonable price than patagonia and it is guaranteed to keep your core cozy!

    An Everywhere Kind of Vest

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I am a wildlife biologist and I work during the winter months. I tested out this vest in 12 degree weather wearing a thermal & a fleece under. It was perfect for hiking up the mountain because I didn't feel overwhelmed by a large down jacket which would usually result in me sweating. It kept me at just the right temperature.

    Besides that, it is adorable! It goes well with basically everything in my closet and I feel great wearing it.

    An Everywhere Kind of Vest

    Warm, packable & stylish

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large

    Great color, awesome styling, super warm for the weight. Slightly tight in the hips vs chest & waist, but the large ended up working for me. Truly worth the money, well made and fun to wear.

    Perfect for Fall in the Midwest

    I love this vest so much that I've give it as a gift to both my sister and my mom! It's very warm and not overly puffy like other brands that I tried. I've worn it for camping, traveling, and even to work.

    Perfect for Fall in the Midwest

    Not the hottest look on me.

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size

    This vest looked very bulky on me. Once again, I'm in between sizes. Woes me. My bust and broad back force me into sizing up but my stomach is flat and my waist quite small. This was very wide in the waist and made me look like a big block. Also the angle of the shoulders cut in and made my shoulders look VERY broad. Personally I think the square and diamond pattern looks a lot better on busty chicks than the horizontal pattern. I'm going to start steering away from the this pattern. It just looks crazy across the bust. Otherwise, gorgeous color. High quality. Nice warm vest.

    Very Warm

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: small

    Great vest and really warm! In the picture it looks like it cinches in to create an hour glass fit, it does not fit like that, more of a boxy fit. However it is durable, warm and all around a great purchase!

    Great Down Vest!

      Perfect fit, so comfortable. Ordered it in the blue, love the bright almost shiny color. Pocket that turns into stuff sack is great for throwing it in the pack for hiking/skiing. Love finding great deals like this on backcountry (ordered this vest on sale for $50)fits true to size.

      Great fit and warm

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is a classic down vest that is warm and flattering. I have it in both the blue and the orange and wear them both regularly.

      Love the yellow!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: S

      I got the jacket in yellow vapor. Some people mentioned the vests being stained or having dark areas from the feathers, I did notice some dark areas from darker feathers in the vest but they are not very noticeable. The fit is great, it provides a good amount of warmth without being bulky. The inside chest pocket is huge, I'm not sure that it needs to be so bug but it would be great if you wanted to carry your phone or any slightly larger items ( I just usually use it for my ID, credit card, and some chap stick.

      Marmot vest/luv it

        Love the vest /light weight ,great for hiking ,folds up small for your pack. Takes the chill off when you need it .its not puffy and bulky nice fit & flex able . Il put it to the test & find out if it wears the endurance ,check back in a year or 2.:) happy

        So very sad!

          So, I have the black color and love it more than I thought. Five stars for the black! It is longer than TNF I feel and does not look like a crop vest if you are a little on the tall side. It is very flattering on, either zipped or unzipped. Very warm, not bulky around the middle or the neck area.

          The sad part is the cherry tomato red color...you can see the dark feathers through the material. At first I thought there were stains all over it, but then realized it was just feathers. Sorry, but that really bothers me and the vest has to be returned, now on the hunt for another red vest.

          The Vest of Choice

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Fit: True to size

          I got this vest in black a year ago, and I've just ordered another one in the wine color because I wear my other one so much. I thought I would only be using this as a layer for skiing but found myself wearing this about 4 times a week for various other things. It's the perfect layer in the winter over your sweater or long sleeve shirt for when you are feeling chilly. I use it during my warm up at the gym. I wear it for going out to lunch in the fall. I wore it climbing two weekends ago. I simply love this vest. It fits well, goes with everything, keeps me the perfect temp. And this version now has down defender - the water resistant down that will keep me drier longer, keep more loft and dry faster when it does get wet.
