Versatile and environmentally-friendly.

You may end up taking the Patagonia Men's Down Sweater Men's Vest wherever you roam, from summer alpine trips to winter ski sessions in the backcountry. Just stow the vest inside its chest pocket before you pack it up, but be sure to let it out regularly so its plush 800-fill Traceable Down insulation retains its soft loft over time. Patagonia's Traceable Down comes from non-live-plucked and non-force-fed geese; a fact that's been third-party-verified.

To enhance its green status, Patagonia made the shell out of a recycled polyester ripstop that's light, windproof, and water-resistant thanks to the DWR finish. Patagonia updated the Down Sweater with a more contoured fit that's longer for better coverage on cold camping trips, and the hem and both cuffs help retain the down's wonderful warmth. Patagonia also added two zippered handwarmers and a zippered internal chest pocket that doubles as a stow pocket when it's time to head back home.

  • DWR finish
  • 800-fill Traceable Down insulation

Great Vest

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Height: 6' 0"
    Weight: 185 lbs

After buying this I hardly every where my Summit Series down jacket or other snowboarding shell jackets. This vest is extremely warm! I haven't gotten it terribly wet, but the little moisture I have experienced hasn't affected it at all. Granted our winter this year hasn't been bad in Utah, I have worn this vest and a lightweight sweatshirt underneath almost exclusively. The fit isn't perfect, the medium is a bit short and the large is a bit spacey, but when zipped up I feel the large is about right, I'm 6 foot 185 lbs.

Anyone else feel like this fits a little boxy? I wear a large in almost everything, and the large in this one was way too much through the body... Shoulders fit great and obviously the hem cinch makes that area adjustable, but can't help but feel like it doesn't hug my midsection at all

Responded on

Tried that, medium is a too tight when zipped and a little short. It's like there is a size in between the two that is where a Large would normally be

Perfect down vest in every possible way - I'm 6'3" 195 lbs and went with a medium for a close, snug fit. The vest is not bulky or puffy like others on the market. This is clean looking vest with a high collar to keep my neck warm. Use this as a layer when I go skiing to keep the core warm and it's functions very well. Green is my favorite color - so it was a no brainer to get the green model this year. Patagonia rocks - easy returns if you ever don't like their products.

Really warm and extremely light

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

This vest is awesome! I bought it as something warm to wear over my flannels and henleys, but it is way warmer than I expected. I wore out on New Year's Eve with a long sleeve cotton shirt underneath. I walked around downtown Salt Lake in 20 degree weather at night and was perfectly warm. Its a perfect addition to your gear, especially if you are looking for something light and packable. The size seems to be pretty true and the color looks just like the picture, at least for the forge grey. I would totally recommend this vest. I love it!

What is center back length of a medium?

I have always purchased Primaloft vests because I've always felt like a vest should be versatile enough to withstand wet weather, given that a vest is usually worn in those "not sure what kind of a day this is going to be" situations. But, there is truly something to be said about Patagonia's down. This jacket seems to surpass any Primaloft vest I have in warmth by far.
It's new to me, so time will tell how well it will hold up, (another concern I have with down) but so far this is very impressive in the warmth category.
