    Simple is vest.

    Not to mention, vest is best—specifically the Patagonia Women's Down Sweater Vest. Designed to maintain core warmth, the Down Sweater Vest features high-loft, 800-fill Traceable Down insulation, which traps that hard-earned heat and promotes effortless temperature regulation—without making you feel as though you're a tire-toting inanimate object. Additionally, the Traceable Down is certified by NSF (an independent third party) and is derived from geese that are never force-fed or live-plucked, meaning you can feel good about feeling good and cozy. A durable shell protects the down insulation from abrasive obstacles and daily wear, while the DWR treatment fends off light moisture build-up and precipitation. Meanwhile, an adjustable hem seals in warmth, and the contoured, slim fit provides a flattering, chic fit. So whether you're perusing the winter farmer's market in search of fresh greens or settling in for a long day of work at the computer, the Down Sweater Vest assures dependable style and warmth.

    • A cool weather staple for maintaining core warmth
    • Recycled ripstop exterior is durable and lightweight
    • DWR treatment repels light moisture
    • 800-fill Traceable Down is warm and thermally efficient

    3-Season Staple

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    The Patagonia Down Sweater Vest is a classic that I'd recommend to anyone. It is down, so it regulates temperature really well by keeping you warm when it is cold, but you don't burn up if it gets too warm out. Since it is a vest, it is more versatile than the regular Down Sweater because you can still wear it as a layering piece under a shell, but it has tons of ventilation with your arms being free. I primarily wear it over a long sleeved t-shirt, but also wear it over a baselayer and under a shell.

    I found the fit to be true to size and it fits really well.

    The best!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XS
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 115lbs

    I was hesitant because of the price but after buying my Torentshell jacket which I love, I knew I needed this. I ordered an XS and it fitted just as expected... Perfect fix and super flattering. 10/10 recommend!

    Strange fit

    • Size Bought: L
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 139lbs

    As others warned, this has an odd fit. I usually wear a M in Mountain Hardwear, so I ordered an L for this vest. It was still too tight across the shoulders and hips, but huge in the waist area. So it's going back. It's a good 4 inches narrower than a Land's End L down vest that I ordered last year, but an inch wider than an REI down vest in L. I wish manufacturers would find some consistency!

    Fantastic!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    Love this vest! super warm and comfortable! I hike and back pack a lot and it works great and it works great for skiing as well! 10/10 would recommend. I got the medium and it works great and is even a little roomie!

    Onto the next one!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small

    I bought this vest 4 years ago and just bought myself a new one! I bought a new one not because the original was at the end of it's life, but because my sister stole mine! The nerve! The vest has stood the test of time and it is obvious that it is a great product as there has been very few changes over the years. "Don't fix what aint broke" The vest is super versatile- I wear mine around the house, working in the yard, on hikes,... just about everywhere! Patagonia just makes a great product - the only thing I would say, is that I did order a size up so that I could get the vest to fit as I would like - a bit loose.

    Cozy and Durable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Super warm and cozy! I am 5' 4'' and 125 lbs and the small fits well with a little room so I can still fit a sweatshirt underneath. Probably would have sized down to an XS for a more fitted look. Love the small interior pocket.

    Turned me in a vest person

      Bought this jacket on a whim and it was a GREAT decision. This is a perfect vest for putting over anything. Even sweaters! I bought the black so it matches everything and it's really comfy. Recommend!

      Cold Weather Essential

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I bought this vest as part of my cold weather ski get up. This is an essential piece in properly layering for frigid ski days.

      I start with a merino base layer (Mons Royale long sleeve turtleneck), then the Patagonia Better Sweater 1/4 zip in an XS. Then this down vest on top in a S. Last, the North Face shredromper bib pants and the North Face Anorak shell on top. You're guaranteed to stay warm that way.

      The reason I opted for a down vest over a down jacket is for breathability and temperature control. Down can get wet and cold if you get too hot and sweat, so it's important to use it wisely in insulating and a vest is the perfect balance between staying warm but not getting over-heated.

      I love the fit of this vest. It pairs so nicely with so many other pieces and adds incredible warmth to the right areas. This vest packs the highest amount of warmth with the least weight and bulk, making it perfect for my ski layering process.

      Big Sur Blue

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'8"
      • Weight: 130lbs

      I got the Big Sur Blue vest and was surprised at how vanilla the white color was. There is no white on this. If you wear a lot of cream colors it'd be a good match.
      Re size, I'm 5'8" 130lbs, 34" chest, 27' waist, 37" hips. I got a medium and it's a tad roomy. Would be great with a base layer of fleece. One caveat is if you have athletic shoulders, the back of the shoulder opening pulls against my arms. I'm returning for that reason.

      Great Vest!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      When it comes to Patagonia I never seem to be let down. This was a gift to my step-mom and she loves it! Its perfect for snowshoeing on the warmer and sunnier days as well as just wearing around town on chilly nights!

      Great Piece

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: medium
      • Height: 5'4"
      • Weight: 140lbs

      Lightweight and really cute. As with many Patagonia items, this runs narrow in the hips. I usually wear a medium, but had to return this for a large as I could zip it at the bottom. Just a note for my curvy sisters!

      Cute and Great for Layering!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small
      • Height: 5'3"
      • Weight: 120lbs

      I recently purchased this vest to have a lightweight layering piece and I love it! I have worn it casually, but I have also worn it under a jacket hiking, touring, and skiing at the resort.

      Slick look, not perfect fit

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: small
      • Height: 5'3"
      • Weight: 125lbs

      I like the look of this, but after lounging in it a bit realized it actually wasn't the perfect fit for me, but I'm still keeping it. It's a little tight in the hips so it slides up, and when I lay down the chest is tight. I tried on a small and medium in a store and the medium was huge on me so I went with the small, but maybe I should've explored more brands.

      Love!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XS
      • Height: 5'4"
      • Weight: 130lbs

      This vest serves as excellent torso insulation without feeling too bulky. It is so warm and lightweight! I usually wear a small in Patagonia with a few pieces in XS. I ordered XS in this to have a form fitting vest and it fits great!

      Perfection

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size

      I got this for my wife who loves to wear it as a layering piece. It adds warmth without too much bulk. It is very packable which is great. Can't go wrong with it!

      Perfect Vest Ever!

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size

      Perfect for my friends as a birthday gift. She's a model, the length of back is long enough. Keep her warm and great look! Will buy it again for my mom.

      Fits great and so warm

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small
      • Height: 5'9"
      • Weight: 140lbs

      Gave this as a gift and it is her favorite vest. It is incredibly warm and not too bulky.

      In my girlfriend's words...

        Patagonia addiction is a real thing! After buying the Patagonia Nano Puff Insulated Jacket and the Patagonia Down Sweater, I knew I had to round out the trifecta with this vest. These three layers fit perfectly together for those warm but snowy days. This vest is a great for everything - outdoor adventures paired with a stylish scarf, or a flannel for drinks at the bar!

        This might seem strange but I want to know what the shirt is underneath the vest.

        The one in the picture with the yellow vest is the Patagonia Capilene 3 Midweight Crew Top in "Hardy Stripe: Birch White/Peach Sherbet". The one under the Tobago Blue vest is the Patagonia Merino 2 Lightweight Crew in "Pearson Stripe: Arctic Mint".
