    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.

    Two thumbs up!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Large

    I originally ordered an XL by mistake, and had to exchange. The Large was a perfect fit for my man; but it does run a bit large. Being a puffy, it packs easily for hiking but fluffs right back up. If you've never owned a vest, they are worth the splurge to regulate body temperature without over-heating.

    Great vest!

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

    I absolutely love this vest and it is by far the best vest I own. It's amazing how warm the vest is for being so lightweight, and I love the feature of being able to pack it into its own pocket. This makes is great when traveling and/or backpacking. I would definitely recommend this vest to anyone who is considering it.

    Sizing off for me

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium & Large

    Sizing just off for me on this at 6'/180 lbs/41" chest. Large was just big all around (gut/mid-section & chest), exchanged for a Medium, which was just too tight in the chest. I just happen to be right in between on Patagonia sizing on that vest. Thanks to Ben @ BC for being so patient with me on all the exchanging. I finally settled on a Arcteryx Cerium LT vest in Large which fits perfect.
    Still give this 5 stars since it's a solid vest...just my wacky body type/size doesn't jive with Patagonia sizing.

    I could fit two people inside an XL

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: XL

    I'm sure this vest is a great piece if it happens to fit you, but the sizing is really weird. I'm 6'2" and 195 lbs. Based on other reviews, I knew it was probably going to be on the big side. And Patagonia says up front it's not a slim or athletic fit vest. But I'm fairly tall so I wanted it to be long enough. Well, an XL is long enough. But it's also big enough to fit an additional person. If I had an extra 50 lbs of beer belly it'd probably fit just great (hey, gotta have goals, right?!).

    Love the material!

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

    Great placement of pockets. The material breaths easily when slightly zipped (probably just a consequence of no sleeves, but hey). Slightly puffy, without being all puffed up in your field of view, in your face, or making you feel weird. Looks great. Just buy one now.

    Love this vest, though a little roomie

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

    Love the quality, style and functionality of this vest. Haven't had a chance to put it through the wringer quite yet, however.

    I wish this vest were a little more form-fitting. I'm 6'3", 200lbs and a size L is somewhat spacious. I didn't want to compromise the length so I stuck with a large.

    Hard to improve on this vest

      For some reason I used to be a vest hater. I'm not really quite sure why, but once I realized the incredible versatility of a puffy vest, I was hooked. I actually own both this vest (in black, picture below) and the Patagonia Nano Puff Vest. The down vest is certainly more lofted and warmer relative to the Nano Puff, so I choose which vest to wear based on the temps and expected level of moisture (Nano Puff is synthetic and performs better when damp).

      Hard to improve on this vest

      Nice Quality but Large is too short

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

      I bought the L after having tried on an XL Down Sweater Jacket. The jacket in XL was way to roomy for me. The vest in Large ends up being a snug but usable fit in all but the length. Its simply to short. Seems there is a gap in between the XL and L. I have had similar problems with North Face sizing.

      Low-profile, high-quality

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

      I love this thing. Other puffy vests I've had in the past are too bulk to wear as a midlayer, but this is perfect under a shell. I've worn it every day for the last month.

      Versatility

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

      Perfect for cool spring and summer mornings. 50's with a t-shirt seems to be the perfect combo. It will fit under my Arcteyx Atom LT on the really cold days.

      The fit is perfect. It looks good with a t-shirt but I can wear a fleece pullover underneath it comfortably. It stuffs down well and will be a great addition for summer backpacking. I think this will be one of my go-to layering piece on my November deer and elk hunts.

      for The Man

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

      This was bought for The Man. He has worn it once or twice, but of the four I purchased this was the only one he really liked. The others had to be returned (which this company has excellent service and no questions asked!).

      Excellent fit (long torso, length was the defining factor also). Thin but very warm and substantial, not puffy and is less bulky.

      Great Vest

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      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.

      Slow shipping

        10 days after I ordered still not here. I hope that $2 Backcountry saved on low rent shipping is worth losing a customer. Fortunately I have a REI down the street and they matched the price and I don't need to wait 2 weeks to get my gear.

        Awesomeness

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

        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!

        Warm!!!

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

        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.

        I wear a xlg in their sweater jacket should I get it in the vest also?

        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
