Hey ladies - this vest is a hot little number and if you're in the market for a vest that looks cute, feels luxurious, is built to last and keeps the cold away - then buy this vest. I am a generally size Small but because the vest I wanted was on sale I could only get it in XS. The other reviews said it runs a bit big so I decided to cross my fingers and hope for the best. Turns out it fits like a glove and is super cute the way it fits me and a Small would've been a wee bit big. Was a bit concerned at first glance that it was on the short side but again North Face nailed the fit as it is perfect all the way across the board. I want to buy another one as a back up but my husband probably wouldn't think that was a great idea so will stick with my basic black and take good care of it!!
decent vest, not great
This is a good vest. It is totally adequate over a fleece or sweatshirt in 50 degree weather. It is made out of sturdy fabric. It is not very packable. It is not very puffy. I sent it back because my girlfriend liked the other one I got her better. It was an Eddie Bauer Down Light vest.
True to size
Very nice vest. I ordered down a size after reading some of the reviews. If you want this vest for around town purposes order down a size, but if you are actually going to use this vest for physical activity and outdoor excursions I would order as the size chart suggests. I had to return my XS. I really need a small to be comfortable.
I have been wanting one of these vests for a while and went back and forth on what brand to go with. I am so happy with my choice - wouldn't trade it for anything! It is warmer than I thought which is great for me! I normally wear a size small, but ended up exchanging for an XS. There is still a little more room around the torso than I wanted, but all in all it is great and I would recommend it to anyone!
I absolutley love this item. I have worn it several times and everytime, I get compliments. All of my friends want to order one. Fits well and looks great on.
Can someone that owns the white color...
Can someone that owns the white color comment on the whiteness? Someone described it as "snow white". I am looking for something in a winter white kind of color, not a bright white. I'm not so sure how good the color is on my computer screen Thanks!
i bought the outer white/inner grey vest. i couldn't be happier -- it's pretty enough to dress up and casual to dress down. it's comfortable and just the right amount of puffiness. i got compliments on the vest. i'm hoping winter lasts longer so i can continue to wear it!
I am very pleased with this vest. I ordered an XL as I am a 46 in the chest and it is a perfect fit. It zips into my shell and eliminates the bulky of the long sleeve fleece liner. Happy camper!
Love it. Fits perfect. It is exactly what I wanted. It will be great in the spring. Thanks again.
I wear this vest EVERYDAY!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about this vest. The fit is perfect (North Face seems to be notorious for running a bit big so I always order a size down), the material is perfect, it's not too bulky, it's so warm, it's a flattering fit, it can be packed in a small stuff sack and put in your pack when not needed...
This vest has become part of my daily wardrobe, it's so comfortable and so warm.
I wear this vest when I do anything outdoors and sometimes I actually find myself falling asleep in it since it's so comfortable.
By far my favorite down vest!
The vest is incredibly comfortable, warm and very well made. It's longer than I expected considering most of the North Face tops/jackets that I own and have tried on are shorter than preferred. (That seems to be a notorious trend for NF). This vest is the perfect length (hits well below a normal pant waist-line). I was worried about the pattern of the stitching compared to the nuptse vest. I actually liked the nuptse pattern better, but bought the aconcagua because of the better price. When I received the vest and saw the aconcagua in person the pattern wasn't an issue at all, in fact it grew on me. The vest does have a bit of a sheen to it, but not too shimmery whatsoever. In fact it probably wouldn't be noticeable at all unless compared with the nuptse.
I thought I would regret not buying the nuptse, but I'm completely happy with my aconcagua purchase! I highly recommend it.
Recommended - the best!
Great deat - always love the North Face Vest - Warm and comfortable and well worth the price.
Love The North Face!
I have this vest in black and white. I wear both of them all the time during the winter, so much that I need more colors! The black one I have had for over two years and it's holding up wonderfully! The vest is very warm, comfortable and stylish! It's also nice you can throw them in the washer/dryer (a lot in my case) and they hold up and the down seems to stay nice and puffy!
NO complaints about this vest!
LOVE this vest. I never knew I could be so warm without a jacket! Not bulky, great for layering, and very versatile as far as dressing it up or down. I am one of those people who is always cold, so now, no matter where I go I know I will be warm as long as I have this vest with me!

How does this vest compare to the Nupste?
Very nice and North Face quality. Can't find a better brand for the warmth. Nice and light weight, very stylish and high quality. It's quite a deal for $98. Love the hot pink color!

I have mostly seasonal allergies and have had a down comforter on my bed in the past and am a bit allergic... is the down vest going to irritate my allergies? even outside? i don't break out or anything, just sniffles! what do you recommend?
I posted on the equivalent question on the synthetic vest, but will add here that down feathers can leak out a little bit, but you shouldn't get poked by any (I'm assuming that might irritate more.) If you're thinking lower bulk like this vest vs the synthetic, as opposed to the higher volume Nuptse, then I'd be partial to saying go with the synthetic fill just in case--they should be nearly the same thermally. If you want to be sure, head to a big box athletic store and stick your face in one of their puffy vests. Given the probably lower quality, if you don't have problems with their vests, then this one should be even less of a reaction.
Kate, I have severe allergies to everything, seasonal, inhalents, food, you name it. I own the down vest, as well as the coats and have never had a problem. I also buy all my north face from backcountry and love them. Easy returns and fast shipping. hope this helps... Nancy
I wanted a vest that was warm, puffy but not too bulky. This one took home the gold.
I am 5'5'', 110 and the xs was definitely the right size if not a little on the bigger side. If you have a long torso it might be a bit short b/c it hits right at my waste.
