    Details

    Core insulation.

    Layers are lovely not just in cakes, although vanilla cake tiers intermixed with dark chocolate buttercream and salted caramel frosting is damn hard to be beat. Yet the Patagonia Women's Down Sweater Vest comes awfully damn close. This lightweight, compressible vest received a makeover for 2014 to flatter your figure, to slide easily beneath your weatherproof snow shell or climbing jacket, and to keep your eco conscience happy. Given how squishy this little vest is, you can cram it into a cranny in your bag for guaranteed core warmth whether you're backpacking at altitude or traveling to Canada for the holidays.

    Ripstop rocks and 100% recycled ripstop is even better. The eco-friendly fabric resists pulls and scratches for long-wearing durability. The DWR finish turns moisture into liquid roller balls that fall off your vest instead of lying around and sinking in. The 800-fill Traceable Down uses feathers from geese that have been humanely treated. Two hand pockets give your weary paws a warm place to rest. Whether you're layering up to survive a brutally cold commute or getting ready to enjoy some fresh spring corn, this sleek and slim vest should be a part of your ultimate ensemble.

    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

    • 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

    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

    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!

    good warmth and great fit

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

    I bought this vest for the rainy Seattle winter since it is often not terribly cold but still requires warm layers (I lived in Minnesota and Illinois for most of my life, so I am used to cold). This is the perfect vest to wear a long sleeve tee or a sweater under. Plus, the inside and outside pockets are perfect for carrying keys/wallet/etc. I love that this vest is water resistant and keeps me warm. However, it is not too warm to be worn inside as well. It is the perfect layer for this cool, rainy winter climate. Highly recommended!

    Love this vest

    The Patagonic Down Sweater Vest is an absolute must for layering. It's tailored and fits snug and provides the extra warmth I'm looking for. Great design and great styling!

    Quality product as expected!

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    This vest looks great, I bought the Navy Blue. It fits nicely but I don't think I will be able to put too thick of a sweater underneath. Expecting it to be sufficiently warm so not an issue. Only gave it 4 stars b/c I haven't worn it yet. Plan on wearing it often in the fall!!! Honestly can't wait ๐Ÿ˜†

    Cute vest but Birch White shows feathers

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

    I received this vest as a gift and love the style but the darker down feathers are visible through the light colored fabric giving it a dirty, speckled appearance. I'm exchanging it for the navy one and feel that should solve the problem.

    Cute vest but Birch White shows feathers

    Really warm, sizing a little funny

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: XS

    I know this is a "regular fit" but I felt like a schlub in the small, so I went with an XS, which fits great through the torso but a little tight in the hips. Otherwise, it's very warm and looks nice. I like the color a lot. For reference, I am 5'4", 120lbs.

    What does DWR coating mean ?

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

    Best Answer

    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".
