Why We Like The Coldfront Hooded Down Vest

When the pressure drops and the cool air rolls in, we keep warm in the Coldfront Hooded Down Vest. This practical puffy is a step above the rest, strategically combining down and synthetic insulation for inescapable heat. Weather-resistant ripstop repels rain and snow and prevents winter winds from chilling our core. And recycled materials run throughout this style, keeping us warm on the inside too.


  • Technical puffy vest with street-worthy style
  • Weather-resistant ripstop made with partially recycled threads
  • Lofty 700-fill down boosts warmth without raising weight
  • Synthetic insulation in the shoulders prevents heat loss in key areas

Love it!

I love this vest. There is an interior pocket that works for a phone or wallet, and the other pockets are deep enough that things don't fall out willy-nilly. Very warm and comfortable.

Great value for quality

I needed a vest for cold steamboat winters. This fits the bill and I love the hood! It is comfortable with huge pockets. Love the adjustable bottom part. I did originally order a large which is my normal size but it was too big. So, maybe order a size down .

Must Have Vest

I'm 5'11'', 140 lbs, 34b bust, long and lean. I fortunately was able to try these on prior to buying because a small ended up being the best size for me. (Often, I'd size up to a medium for layering and arm length, but not an issue with vests). I wear this daily around town for errands, dog walks, and ALWAYS pack it on my longer adventures at higher elevation. The hood is ridiculously warm when up, and the plushy lined pockets insulate hands. My complaint was about the sizing. I found it ran large. I'm hoping to grab this in the new white color.

Nice everyday vest

As others noted, this vest runs very large. I own other OR vests in size small and this one feels like a M/L in comparison.

I want to be able to layer or wear it around town so I sized down one and it was the right call. It's warm, high quality, stylish and flattering. I've had it a couple months now and I wear it as part of my everyday wardrobe. It works for outside adventures as well, but I personally am pretty hard on my outdoor clothing and I want to keep this vest nice.

Awesome Hooded Vest

Vest performs well to keep the core warm while allowing ventilation. As someone who gets very hot during activity this has been a welcome addition to my wardrobe for winter outdoor activities while on the move.

This vest runs a little larger than other Outdoor Research items I have purchased so I layer it over my coat when I'm sitting in forest for a few hours during early morning surveys. I like: long in the back, very packable, color, quality, usefulness. I don't like: runs large (would prefer to be able to wear under a jacket or alone), hood is very bulky, can't hear anything but head rubbing against fabric when hood is raised, pocket zippers can be sticky.
