Here's what others have to say...



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

I was looking for a vest like this for some time. I love it. I ordered size small, I am 5'6", 125 lbs and 33 inch chest, and it is perfect. Love the baroque purple color. I used it only once for camping and it is nicely warm.


Love it!

    The Carmel is a great fitting and surprisingly hardy vest. I've worn this vest hiking and casually constantly since I purchased it earlier this season and I have yet to see any kind of wear on it. The cinch cord on the hem is great allowing for a more precise fit. A must!


    GREAT Vest!

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

    I bought this vest mainly to use as layering when skiing, but I've ended up wearing it as part of outfits as well. It is incredibly warm and light. I am always the only freezing and shivering when I go out skiing with friends, but this vest does exactly what I needed it to. I usually wear a medium in shirts/jackets (5'6" 130 lbs), but the medium was huge on me. I returned it and got the small, which fit better but was not incredibly flattering because it was still a tiny bit too big so I ended up settling on the x-small. I like that the side pockets zip up so I can put my phone in there after taking off my ski jacket and not worry about losing it. I like the inside pocket as well, though I don't think it zips. I love the baroque purple color, but sometimes it almost looks brown. I love it though! Hopefully it holds up for a long time considering how expensive it was. Definitely 5 stars.


    Plaid looks great

      Great vest, I liked the plaid, but the large was too big around the arms and in the shoulders. I think a medium wouldn't give me the space to wear bulkier items underneath, so it was returned.


      warm, awesome layer

        This vest is really good looking, plaid flannel is sweet and soft....and it is a warm vest, so you can get away with wearing it a lot instead of a jacket if it isn't precipitating.


        Love it!

          Buttons and zips.... Not too puffy, but is super warm. Size chart is accurate.

          Is this thing just buttons, or does it...

          Is this thing just buttons, or does it have a zipper too? Does anyone know of a down vest that just has buttons?


          Rubber buttons turn brown when cleaned

            Paid 150.00 for the vest somewhere else and the buttons turned brown when cleaned. Does North Face back this product and this problem?
