    Details

    Simple is vest.

    Not to mention, vest is best—specifically the Patagonia Women's Down Sweater Vest. Designed to maintain core warmth, the Down Sweater Vest features high-loft, 800-fill Traceable Down insulation, which traps that hard-earned heat and promotes effortless temperature regulation—without making you feel as though you're a tire-toting inanimate object. Additionally, the Traceable Down is certified by NSF (an independent third party) and is derived from geese that are never force-fed or live-plucked, meaning you can feel good about, well, feeling good and cozy. A durable shell protects the down insulation from abrasive obstacles and daily wear, while the DWR treatment fends off light moisture build-up and precipitation. Meanwhile, an adjustable hem seals in warmth, and the contoured, slim fit provides a flattering, chic fit. So whether you're perusing the winter farmer's market in search of fresh greens or settling in for a long day of work at the computer, the Down Sweater Vest assures dependable style and warmth.

    • A cool weather staple for maintaining core warmth
    • Recycled ripstop exterior is durable and lightweight
    • DWR treatment repels light moisture
    • 800-fill Traceable Down is warm and thermally efficient
    • Adjustable hem seals in body heat
    • Bevvy of pockets keep necessities close
    • Chest pocket doubles as a stuff sack

    Perfect Vest Ever!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    Perfect for my friends as a birthday gift. She's a model, the length of back is long enough. Keep her warm and great look! Will buy it again for my mom.

    In my girlfriend's words...

      Patagonia addiction is a real thing! After buying the Patagonia Nano Puff Insulated Jacket and the Patagonia Down Sweater, I knew I had to round out the trifecta with this vest. These three layers fit perfectly together for those warm but snowy days. This vest is a great for everything - outdoor adventures paired with a stylish scarf, or a flannel for drinks at the bar!

      Super cute

      • Fit: True to size

      I got this for my girlfriend and she loves it, can't take it off. She wears it almost everyday, especially in the fall when you need just a little bit of warmth. It is a Patagonia product so have no fear buying this, it has an unbeatable warranty and is a very quality product.

      Great vest!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: Small

      I am 5'7" and 130 pounds and ordered the small in black. I love this vest. Comfortable, stylish, great pockets for storage. A little tight in my hip area, but not enough of a problem to size up.

      The perfect puffy!

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

      This really is the perfect puffy vest. It's incredibly warm, yet very lightweight. I especially like that the arm holes are elastic so they're not restricting at all when you wear a thicker layer underneath. I sweat a lot, so I appreciate it not being so tight in the armpits!! Just took it on a trip to Norway (September) and it was the perfect outer layer most days.

      Will never throw this out

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

      This is probably my favorite vest of all time. I've worn it through multiple ski seasons under a shell and on its own for a few years now and seen almost no wear. It's definitely a fitted vest, but not so fitted that I can't wear a baselayer and thin fleece underneath it. I've found that it's almost too warm for most sunny Utah ski days, but it's kept me outside through many grey, bitterly cold days on the East coast. I always trust the internal mesh pocket to keep my phone or cash safe, and it's one of my favorite features of the vest. The slim cut lets it easily transition to a casual piece too, which I really like. Unless this vest falls apart, I can't see myself ever getting rid of it.

      It is like getting a hug

      • Size Bought: L

      So I have had puffy envy for quite some time now, but I finally had an excuse to buy this vest. I purchased it for an backpacking trip in Iceland. This vest kept me warm as I trekked across glaciers, and is amazingly wind proof. It did bead and shed a little rain, but make sure to keep it under your raincoat if it truly going to pour. But the best part about this vest isn't how super warm it is, isn't how it actually looks cute and fashionable, nor how it doesn't seem to weight anything at all. The best part is, when you are cold and put it on, it is like getting a cozy, puffy hug. I love my vest!

      Good vest.

      • Size Bought: medium

      I bought this as a gift for someone, so I can't speak from personal experience, but the recipient seems to love it. She says it's super warm and extremely lightweight, which makes it perfect for layering, while the tough fabric has held up through some pretty demanding adventures. She also enjoys putting things in the pockets for safe keeping.

      Finally.......

      • Fit: True to size

      I cannot tell you how many vests I ordered from different sites and all of them were returned because they didn't fit as expected. This one was perfect! On the picture it looks puffier than what it is and that's why it took me such a long time to order it, I didn't want something that was going to feel bulky when wearing it. I am very pleased with it, have taken it to three backpacking trips and two big hikes and love it.

      Stylish vest but tight in hips

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Size Bought: Medium

      Overall this is a nice vest. Not too puffy like others I've tried, but still keeps your core very warm. I've worn it on hikes in 15 degree weather underneath a down jacket for extra warmth and also over a long sleeve baselayer alone while walking the dog in 40-50 degree temps. It's stylish enough to wear to work or on a casual night out. My one complaint is the same as that noted by others: If you are a curvy girl or have wider hips, it is very tight at the bottom. The rest of the vest fits perfectly, but the bottom is so tight I can barely zip it if wearing jeans. It's a bit easier with workout pants on, but still a bit tight and bunches up when you sit. I'm 5'4 143 lbs and do have big hips, so it may be perfect for those with a smaller frame or narrow waist and hips, but for hourglass, pear or other wider-hip body types, the bottom may be an issue. I still wear it a lot, just have to pull it down occasionally as it rides up. Other than that it's greats do I love it, just wish the bottom were either stretchy or a little wider.

      Mountain Style

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

      I've been eyeing the vest for awhile after a friend of mine purchased it, and I couldn't be happier with my decision to buy my own. It is light weight, but warm, cute, but practical in for the mountains (camping, skiing, hiking, etc.). It is a perfect piece for the spring.

      The best

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

      After stealing my mom's Patagonia down vest for as long as I could before she noticed, I finally broke down and bought one of my own. I wear this thing most days of the week. I normally wear a medium and this medium is a perfect fit. Not too tight, but not bulky at all. Its super warm and feels like I'm in my down jacket all day without it getting in the way. I wear this on warmer days skiing under my shell and on winter hikes. This down vest is the most flattering one I have tried on and I really recommend buying it.

      Should be classified as Fitted Instead

      • Fit: Runs small

      Just got the Down Sweater Vest to add to my wardrobe, ordered a "S" assuming that I fit nicely (with some room to spare) with the Patagonia Down Sweater. To my disappointment, it was a bit snug to my liking. Tried a flannel shirt, and it was very fitted, where it was really tight around chest area. It is also slightly shorter than my Down Sweater. For comparison in sizing, I placed the vest over my Down Sweater, and there is a 1 inch difference in sizing, which in my case, made a difference in comfort level. The zipper on the vest also was bunching up (zipped and unzipped), where it wouldn't stay flat (it looked like rolling hills),so quality control was lacking. Disappointed, since I really liked the Underwater color of this vest. Bummer....

      I bought this vest as a gift for my girlfriend, and she hasn't stopped wearing it! 800 fill down in the vest keeps her warm and it's super lightweight. It looks great when layering over a long tee or sweatshirt. It's very versatile; she's worn it casually and even out some nights. Seems like it will become a staple in her wardrobe, so I'm glad I got it! The vest is true to size; she is on the petite side, but had no complaints about fit. Definitely worth it!

      Great vest but disappointed with sizing

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Size Bought: medium

      I have the Patagonia Down Sweater which I love and layer a lot under, but the vest is longer and the medium is tight around my hips. I am "short waisted" so the extra length and narrowness at the bottom is a disappointment. But hey, considering everything bad that can happen in the world, this is nothing. :-)

      Super Warm + Awesome Fit

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      I've only had this vest for a few days but it's already quickly becoming my go to for the cool fall days. It is very lightweight but extremely warm. I can get 2 layers underneath it pretty comfortably. I like the cut of the vest and how it fits me. I would highly recommend it!

      What does DWR coating mean ?

      This might seem strange but I want to know what the shirt is underneath the vest.

      The one in the picture with the yellow vest is the Patagonia Capilene 3 Midweight Crew Top in "Hardy Stripe: Birch White/Peach Sherbet". The one under the Tobago Blue vest is the Patagonia Merino 2 Lightweight Crew in "Pearson Stripe: Arctic Mint".
