So warm and comfy
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.

gorgeous but too small in the chest
Super substantial material, and really lovely details. It crushes my chest and I don't want to go up a size and have it be bigger where it doesn't need to be. Only a D cup, purchased an L (but am a bigger gal). I have 2 other Patagonia vests and the L in those fit fine- one is a different down vest also. High quality item, hate that it didn't work for my shape.

I held off getting this vest for a very long time. But finally decided to treat myself. I usually wear a medium, however I ordered a large and did not like how big it was on me. I exchanged it for a medium and it fits perfect!(For reference I am 5'4 and 150) Super warm and these pockets are beyond amazing!! I only wish it had a more comfortable zipper guard.

Believe the hype
The reviews don’t lie - this vest is the real deal. It’s the perfect weight for colder days and doesn’t add bulk. The zipper and buttons give it a nice finish and the fleece lined pockets are nice and warm and big enough to hold gloves or a phone. The hood is a nice feature as well. I wore this in 40 degree weather and wasn’t cold. I was a bit between a M and L and got both - kept the L. I’m a size 8/10 usually (36” chest, 29” waist, 40” hips). The M was too tight in the chest and slightly small in the hips. L is perfect and allows for a bulkier layer underneath. Order this vest!

Bought this as a gift for my sister and she loves it! I honestly like it too and would buy it, the color scheme is great and the vest just looks super cute and comfy and not only that but it looks warm too! I got a medium and shes an average girl and it fit perfect.

Best. Vest. Ever.
I have been drooling over this vest for the past few years and I am SO happy I finally got one. So warm. So easy to layer. Casual, yet functional look. I cant say enough about this vest. Ive worn it every day since I got it both just to work and for short hikes. I got a small at 5 foot 1 112 lbs and I can fit chunky hoodies under it perfectly.

The Best Vest!
I got this for my mother for Christmas and oh my goodness she doesn't take it off. It's concerning. It's a good length where a lot of other vests fall short and the hood and down lining make it perfect for really snowy days. She loves it and I will selfishly be borrowing it. She is the same size as me and the small fits us both great.

Warm and Cute
I went home for the Thanksgiving and my older sister bullied me into buying her the same vest as a gift... Just Kidding! We are good friends and she doesn't bully me but seriously, she had this vest in the gray/purple mailed to her doorstep within a week. Its so warm, so comfortable, and I always get compliments when I wear it.

Give the Gift of Warmth
I bought this vest for my sister for Christmas. She said it's super comfortable and warm. The sizing chart was spot on for me so it fits true to size. If you are looking for a stylish, warm vest then give this Patagonia hooded vest a shot. You won't be disappointed.

Gave this as a gift to my mom and was then tempted to buy it for myself. Super comfortable and warm. Retro style is awesome and the colors are beautiful in person.

Bought this as a gift for my girlfriend. These are her comments: "Really warm vest that unfortunately attracts a lot of dog hair, but that's my life anyways hahaha! Otherwise, the attention to detail and accents make the vest more unique."

I purchased this vest last year in the maroon and grey color because the colors were perfect for cool fall days tailgating and going to football games at my alma matter. It is warm, comfortable, and the fit is perfect. It is warm and functional like my other Patagonia outdoor clothing, but the look is fun and a bit retro. I get so many compliments on this vest! Like others said, the only downfall is the fabric is a magnet for dog hair.

I love this vest! It is such a cute twist on a down vest and the Smoulder Blue and Green color is great and goes with everything!

The Best Vest!
I bought this for my mother for Christmas... but I may have tried it on before I give it to her. It is immediately comfortable and fits true to size. I love down anything, so this vest is perfect for chilly mornings. I got my mom a medium so she can layer underneath and still have a little room.

Cozy and Warm!
I love, love, this vest. It’s very warm without feeling heavy and the material is soft and cozy. It does attract a bit of my cat’s hair, haha, but a quick lint roll before I leave the house and I’m fine! The fit is true to size while allowing for some layering.

Bought this for my wife and it's now her Fall go-to. The only downside is that it attracts dog hair but otherwise everything you could want in a vest.

I love this vest. it's thick, built well, and withstands travel, and machine washes. As another user pointed out, it DOES attract lint. I looked down during my first wear and found a bunch of random lint from who knows what! But I've worn in inside jackets, outside jackets, over t-shirts and long sleeve sweaters. It's probably one of my favorite items to wear!

Bought this vest knowing it was stylish looking but hoping it would be warm and cozy as well and it did not dissapoint. highly recommended!

It's not the vest, it's the merchant
I purchased the Patagonia vest for my daughter in law and thought it was brand new. Lo and behold when she opened it and tried it on there were items in the pocket from the previous owner, a used chap stick and tissue. Needless to say it was somewhat embarrassing. This was my first experience with Backcountry and probably my last. I was not expecting to purchase used clothing.
January 17, 2018
Thats such a shame! Ive been a long time customer of backcountry, roughly 3 years and i have always had amazing customer care and service. Maybe try giving them a call and see what they can do for you?

Love this vest!
First, all the reviews are true: It's an awesome vest but it attracts lint like crazy. I don't even have dogs or anything, but little piece of lint kept showing up. Yikes! other than that though, it is a super cozy vest. I always get really hot wearing a big coat and often getting annoyed at feeling really bulky around the elbows. So I love this vest because it keeps my core warm while my elbows feel free! :)
