  • Ultralight, windproof and water-resistant polyester shell has high-tear strength and resists abrasion
  • DWR finish resists rain, grapple, snow, and coffee spills with equal gusto
  • Quilted construction keeps insulation firmly in place to help maintain warmth

  • Stuffs into its own zippered stretch-mesh pocket to help save space

nice, but boxy!

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

This is a great looking vest! It would have done any job well i have no doubts. However, i gave this as a gift and his torso is long, he has broad shoulders and narrow hips (athletic build), and this vest just did not fit him right. We tried two different sizes, and they were not long enough, and then not wide enough. So this would be great for someone with a more stocky build, but if you are a long and narrow, i would stay away.

Great purchase

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

Not a big puffy vest, it's very relaxed and fit my son well. He loves it and wears it often.

Im 5'11" and I weigh 155 pounds. What size would be best for me?

Responded on

I cant really make a good guess with the information provided. If we could get your chest measurement and your sleeve length we would be able to pinpoint your exact size. Also, we do have a size chart that you can compare your measurements against.�

Not bad

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

I like this vest a lot. fits well and keeps me warm. I wish it was a little smaller and lighter, but then again I guess there are other vest that fit the bill for that. Great to stuff in the pack and pull out at the summit or when lounging around camp.

Awesome vest

The title of backcountry.com's product description says it all - I have gotten a ton of comments and compliments on the vest. Feels even better than it looks. Warm without the bulk.

Great vest

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

Runs a little large, but fits perfect at a size down. I had a fair amount of trouble finding a vest that fit in the shoulders and wasn't swimming at the waist, this one fits perfectly. Size chart is right on too.

Typical quality

  • Fit: True to size

This vest runs a little big, which is great for layering (6'3 195)
The loft isn't as much as I had imagined, however, it is still my warmest and lightest vest.

Who doesn't love a great vest?

I Like It!!

This is a great vest. I generally wear it in the late fall with a flannel or other long sleeve shirt. It keeps you quite warm, packs down small into its chest pocket, and comes in cool colors. I think it is my favorite vest I have worn. Feels good, looks good, seems to be doing its job.

Warm & Comfy

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

I bought this piece almost 4 years ago. It has become an essential layering piece in the early spring and late fall. Great for hanging around campfires and throwing on over a fleece longsleeve after a day of climbing. The insulation offers an effective layer, and the sleeve-less-ness adds good airflow to keep moisture down. I've even used mine as an emergency pillow.
Really solid shell material. I had to snag it on a nail to break the membrane, and the tear stopped without destroying the piece. A little thread fixed it up.
Nice addition to any wardrobe and looks spiffy too!

Nice Vest

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This was purchased for those days when it isn?t quite cold enough for full sleeves but still too cold for just a shell and light sweater. My favorite thing about this vest is that I forget I?m even wearing it, its as light and flexible as they get. Good warmth for what it is but helps avoid sweating. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good down vest.

Down sweater vest

Light, warm , comfy. Typical for Patagonia. Great for fall/spring or layering in real cold. Got it at the end of the cold season so looking forward to using it more later this year.

Does the Patagonia Down Sweater vest have...

Does the Patagonia Down Sweater vest have the capability to be "zipped-into" an outer shell? Thanks.

Responded on

No, not designed to be zipped into a shell. You could certainly wear it under a shell, but if you're sweating down might not be the best insulation choice.

Light 'n' warm down vest

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

As shown in the photo, I bought this item to use over the top of my shell when splitboard touring, in particular for when you reach the top of a snowy, windy ridge line and are getting ready for the descent and you want to add another layer, but don't want to take your shell off and expose yourself to the elements.

Anyway, this is a light and warm vest that does the job. It packs away nicely into its own pocket and takes up hardly any room in my pack. The outer material is tough enough that wearing it underneath your pack won't damage it.

warm and comfy

keeps you surprisingly warm for just being a vest. and looks great! I like it a lot. Im 6'2" ~175 and got L. Could have definitely gone down to a Medium though for a more fitting fit.

Most comfortable vest of all time. I have an athletic build and usually wear a large, but sized down to a medium for a more trim fit. Works great as a stand alone layer until temp gets below 30.

The quest to be weatherproof

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I wanted a coat that would be very warm, light, and stylish at a good quality.The Patagonia Down Sweater Vest has shown and proved thus far. I have only used the vest in the urban streets of NYC and my car (which it is perfect for). Everyone loves how the red pops. With any decent shell this coat will keep you weather proof. I thought about spraying waterproofing on it so I can wear it all the time. Great Layer, or stand alone.

Worth it!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Very comfortable vest! For the sales and deals ive see on it, its worth it! The 800 fill down is very warm. Keeps you toasty. The fit is snug, i almost found a XL too small (XL is the normal fit for me in all other brands). Lots of pockets, i love how it stuffs down into itself, makes it easy for stowing away in your pack, makes it available whenever needed. Very nice piece of gear. I normally dont like vests, but decided to give one a try, and im glad i did.

Great for the Cold

  • Gender: Male

For most purposes bar hard-core alpine climbing, this is all you need. It's attractive and warm. The fit is not slim so it's not effective for wind-proofing but it is a great, versatile vest.

For going around town, this jacket looks great! I love the way this vest looks.

great fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Vest is just what I was looking for! Color was as seen on the website. Fit has an athletic cut.
