Don't be afraid to Lay(er) it on with this versatile vest.
Success is like a sweet-smelling onion: lots and lots of layers. The North Face Women's Tamburello Vest is another layer so all of your outdoor adventures are crushing successes. Whether you're picking Halloween pumpkins in the throes of fall or ripping tight turns on a hardpacked racecourse in below-zero windchill, this vest gives you just the right amount of warmth for all-day comfort and fun.
The shell is a mix of 44D and 40D fabrics which resist requests from light precipitation as well as brushing off insults from the occasional rude branch or sharp shard of ice. The taffeta lining is sleek and smooth so it glides over any baselayer you wear, even those scratchy long-johns from your great great grandmother. Heatseeker insulation, The North Face's proprietary synthetic insulation, provides warmth without a lot of extra weight, adding to the streamlined look of the Tamburello.
Two zippered hand-warmer pockets hold you gloves when you need to use your fingers, or keys and candy when you're out for an evening walk. This slim vest traverses amongst the hardcore outdoor folks and urban dwellers alike, keeping everyone warm and happy. When you're heading to the South Base Camp of Mt. Everest (5,364m), sandwich the Tamburello between thermal baselayers and an expedition parka. Or, if your base camp is an RV in the stadium parking lot in late September, throw the Tamburello vest over your faded and torn college T-shirt, and head out to tailgate knowing you'll be warm until the bitter end (of the game).

Wife loves this vest
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
- Fit: True to size
I have a lightweight synthetic stuffable vest from another gear manufacturer that I keep when I travel and my wife had been stealing it to wear around the house. I bought this one as a surprise for her and she has worn it almost every day since. This is not the most compressible vest or the lightest, but it has a good balance of durability for everyday wear and lightness, stuffableness for camping, etc. I wanted a washable vest that would hold up to everyday wear but also be suitable for outdoor pursuits and this fit the bill perfectly.
