Warm / Light

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

Just picked this down vest up. It's super warm, super light, and packs down tight. I get a little worried about the durability of Down jackets/vests, but I'll check back in a few months with a report of how it's held up. I think this'll make for a great modular insulating layer.

Nothing but model year and color. It's embarrassing to have the 2013's still on the shelf when we have the 2014's ready to go. So to encourage you to take them off our hands we dropped the price. Simple retail economics, outlet is last year and the full price are this year..

Lightest, warmest

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

If you're looking for the most minimal, and warmest down vest out there, look no further. This Patagonia Ultralight vest has kept me warm always. The down is so packed into the nylon it's practically like wearing a pillowed sheet for a vest. The nylon is so thin you can actually see the down inside. And it comes with a stash bag you can fold the vest into in the event you want to put it in your bag. It's extremely lightweight and totally worth it's weight in warmth.

Oh, and be warned about the Paintbrush Red - It's definitely super duper orange, and not red at all. Not really an issue for me, but might be for other people looking for something red.
