Why We Like The Down Sweater Vest
Designed to maintain core warmth, the Patagonia Down Sweater Vest features high-loft, 800-fill Traceable Down insulation, which traps that hard-earned heat and promotes effortless temperature regulation. 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. 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 we'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.

I ordered the White down vest for my wife in the white straight from Patagonia and when I picked it up from the store hear in Nashville it looked like it had black or blue spots everywhere. I took it back and reordered from Back Country due to the great price. When it came in it had the same spots. I did some research on other sites with this jacket and its a problem with the down showing through. So now I'm sending this back and its costing me time and money. I'm not ordering this jacket again. Maybe North Face has a White

This was everything I was hoping for, untill I looked in the mirror. I ordered the birch white and throughout the fabric it looked liked like small stains were scattered through out the fabric, only to realize it was the darker pieces of the fill showing through. Not sure if this was a random defect or the fill is not dyed. I had to do a full return as all darker colors were sold out. I will hope for next year and start earlier.

In the past, I've always purchased cheaper puffy vests with synthetic fill, because I couldn't fathom spending this much on a vest. However, I used my JC Penney brand black vest (purchased in college when cheap is best) for a good six years then decided that I had probably gotten my $25 worth from it, and since I wore it often enough, I needed to consider upgrading. I tried on black down vests from several different outdoors brands, and finally landed on the Patagonia Down Sweater Vest (even though it was the most expensive) because it fit me the best. The torso is longer than the North Face ones I tried on, but it isn't encroaching on "tunic" territory. In the winter, I wear this pretty much every day?I maybe start wearing it a little early, on chilly evenings at the end of fall, with short sleeves and shorts. It layers great under a coat if you really need that (which isn't often, in Arkansas), and I know it's going to last me even longer than that cheap JC Penney vest.
