Why We Like The Bivy Hooded Down Vest

Whether we're prepping our raised-bed gardens in anticipation of the first fall frost or we're corralling the chickens before bed, the Patagonia Bivy Hooded Down Vest always comes with to offer hardy warmth and performance.

Made with rugged nylon canvas, the Bivy boasts a tenacious construction that's chore-friendly (no matter how much square footage you rent or own), while the DWR treatment keeps light precipitation at bay. The 600-fill down insulation keeps you toasty, and it's entirely recycled from lightly used down products. And when you need to really hunker down, an insulated hood and two hand pockets add furnace-like refuge.

Wish it had a zipper

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 9"

I really like this vest. It's very cute, super soft and very warm. I just went for a 45 min walk in 35 degree weather with this and just an under base layer. The only feature I wish it had was a zipper. Just a button up is kind of annoying to put on and off.

Awesome vest!

I've put it through the wringer

Fits true to size and I have found it can be reversed! It’s perfect for chilly days where you just need that extra layer.

Just what I needed

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 5"

I was looking for something cozy to wear when walking my dogs on the beach in the morning/evening. I tried on the bivy jacket and loved it!, but living in Southern California I really had no need to spend that much money for a jacket I would rarely be able to wear. This vest was just perfect for what I needed. I got the navy/army green vest on sale! It goes with most of my causal wardrobe and hiking gear. I love that I can throw this on over a long sleeved shirt , sweater or sweatshirt. I really enjoy the hood and it does a great job blocking the wind which helps keep my warm without having to wear a beanie. I intended on ordering a small but accidentally ordered an xs but it fits be perfectly, with enough room for light layering. Yes it does attract dog hair, but that?s already a major part of my life LOL.

Unique and warm!

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 5"

I eyed this vest for a long time before being ready to spend the money on it, but finally bought it in sage khaki. I have an obsession with vests because I dislike wearing bulky coats, and in Arkansas there's a good portion of the winter where a vest is sufficient if you aren't outside for extended periods of time. When I first tried it on, I wasn't sure if it would keep me as warm as my Patagonia Down Sweater Vest, and admittedly it's not the same fill level - but it's still significantly warmer than I expected! I also was hesitant about having a hood, but I really like it. I ordered the same size as my Patagonia Down Sweater Vest, and while it is maybe a little tighter across my chest, I wouldn't want to go up a size. I wore it on a slightly rainy day and was impressed with the fabric's resistance to water. My only complaint is that the canvas material tends to hold hair and fuzz, so I have to lint roller it before and after I wear it. If I am wearing a dark-colored long sleeve or flannel, I will notice that color of fuzz on the vest. Worth it, though, because the vest is unique and comfy!

Nice Quality

I returned this product before using it

I ended up returning this item because I didn't need it (admittedly a stress-purchase!). BUT it was really lovely. The fabric on the outside was tough enough to withstand some daily wear, but still soft. The inside lining was silky and comfy. Just what I would expect from Patagonia. The Small was a bit snug (I'm 5'4" 130lbs with a small bust), so if I were to keep it, I'd probably want a Medium.

So warm and comfy

I returned this product before using it
Size Bought:
6' 1"

Quality vest - it fits me well (over a light sweatshirt) and is so warm (good for chilly days here in Minnesota). I'm especially excited about the cozy pockets for my hands (there is a nice little zipper pocket inside too). I am also a fan of the hood on it. Vests have never really been my thing, so I hesitated for a long time with this purchase (seriously about 2 years). I am really happy with my purchase and expect to make good use of it.
