    Versatile and environmentally friendly.

    From summer climbing in the alpine to winter ski sessions in the backcountry, you may end up taking the Patagonia Men's Down Sweater Vest wherever you roam. Just stow the vest inside its chest pocket before you pack it up, but be sure to let it out regularly so its plush 800-fill Traceable Down insulation retains its loft and efficient insulating properties over time. Patagonia's Traceable Down comes from geese that were never live plucked or force fed.

    To enhance its green status, Patagonia made the shell out of a recycled polyester ripstop that's light, windproof, and water-resistant thanks to a DWR finish. Patagonia updated the Down Sweater with a more contoured fit that's longer for better coverage on cold camping trips, and the hem cuffs help retain the down's wonderful warmth. Patagonia also added two zippered handwarmer pockets and a zippered internal chest pocket that doubles as a stow pocket when it's time to pack it up and hit the trail or skintrack.

    • An insulating layer ideal for chilly belays and freezing ski days
    • 800-fill Traceable Down insulation is lightweight and compressible
    • Recycled polyester shell is windproof and water-resistant
    • Adjustable hem and elasticized cuffs work to retain heat
    • One zippered internal stow pocket at chest
    • Contoured fit with longer hem wears over and under layers easily
    • Patagonia is dedicated to producing eco-conscious products
    • Item #PAT00FP

    Christmas was won!

      Little late getting this review out. I got this vest for my husband, and he loves it. He wears it about every day. It looks great. It's all he needs on more mild winter days. He got a medium and the fit was perfect. Also love that the down is gotten humanely.

      Warmth Booster

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

      It gets cold in South Dakota, and I'm an outdoor photographer who isn't afraid of the coldest nights. This vest is great when riding in the truck and jumping in & out, but it doesn't stop there. It's so thin it's an easy way to boost warmth under my main winter parka when the temperature hits zero F and is still in a free fall. It's hard to believe that something this thin and light could be so warm! I've worn it almost everyday since receiving it last month (in temperatures hovering near zero F) and would buy another one of these if something happened to this one. I wear under either an Outdoor Research Floodlight (lightweight jacket) or under a Mountain Hardwear Absolute Zero parka when the mercury is hiding in the thermometer's bulb.

      It's nice but not at full price

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

      This vest is nice. It's surprisingly warm and seems durable. I also have a Mountain Hardwear Nitrous jacket, and this is definitely thicker than that. That isn't really a benefit or a drawback, but note that it is pretty thick and pretty warm. The price is really high though. I got mine on sale and it isn't hard to find this or similar down vests from other manufacturers for the $90-120 range.

      As for sizing, I'm 5'11'' and 175lbs and the medium fits comfortably with a lightweight fleece underneath. I have a little room but not too much extra.

      Two thumbs up!

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: Large

      I originally ordered an XL by mistake, and had to exchange. The Large was a perfect fit for my man; but it does run a bit large. Being a puffy, it packs easily for hiking but fluffs right back up. If you've never owned a vest, they are worth the splurge to regulate body temperature without over-heating.

      Great vest!

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

      I absolutely love this vest and it is by far the best vest I own. It's amazing how warm the vest is for being so lightweight, and I love the feature of being able to pack it into its own pocket. This makes is great when traveling and/or backpacking. I would definitely recommend this vest to anyone who is considering it.

      Sizing off for me

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium & Large

      Sizing just off for me on this at 6'/180 lbs/41" chest. Large was just big all around (gut/mid-section & chest), exchanged for a Medium, which was just too tight in the chest. I just happen to be right in between on Patagonia sizing on that vest. Thanks to Ben @ BC for being so patient with me on all the exchanging. I finally settled on a Arcteryx Cerium LT vest in Large which fits perfect.
      Still give this 5 stars since it's a solid vest...just my wacky body type/size doesn't jive with Patagonia sizing.

      I could fit two people inside an XL

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: XL

      I'm sure this vest is a great piece if it happens to fit you, but the sizing is really weird. I'm 6'2" and 195 lbs. Based on other reviews, I knew it was probably going to be on the big side. And Patagonia says up front it's not a slim or athletic fit vest. But I'm fairly tall so I wanted it to be long enough. Well, an XL is long enough. But it's also big enough to fit an additional person. If I had an extra 50 lbs of beer belly it'd probably fit just great (hey, gotta have goals, right?!).

      Love the material!

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      Great placement of pockets. The material breaths easily when slightly zipped (probably just a consequence of no sleeves, but hey). Slightly puffy, without being all puffed up in your field of view, in your face, or making you feel weird. Looks great. Just buy one now.

      Love this vest, though a little roomie

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: large

      Love the quality, style and functionality of this vest. Haven't had a chance to put it through the wringer quite yet, however.

      I wish this vest were a little more form-fitting. I'm 6'3", 200lbs and a size L is somewhat spacious. I didn't want to compromise the length so I stuck with a large.

      Hard to improve on this vest

        For some reason I used to be a vest hater. I'm not really quite sure why, but once I realized the incredible versatility of a puffy vest, I was hooked. I actually own both this vest (in black, picture below) and the Patagonia Nano Puff Vest. The down vest is certainly more lofted and warmer relative to the Nano Puff, so I choose which vest to wear based on the temps and expected level of moisture (Nano Puff is synthetic and performs better when damp).

        Hard to improve on this vest

        Nice Quality but Large is too short

        • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
        • Size Bought: L

        I bought the L after having tried on an XL Down Sweater Jacket. The jacket in XL was way to roomy for me. The vest in Large ends up being a snug but usable fit in all but the length. Its simply to short. Seems there is a gap in between the XL and L. I have had similar problems with North Face sizing.

        Low-profile, high-quality

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

        I love this thing. Other puffy vests I've had in the past are too bulk to wear as a midlayer, but this is perfect under a shell. I've worn it every day for the last month.

        Versatility

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

        Perfect for cool spring and summer mornings. 50's with a t-shirt seems to be the perfect combo. It will fit under my Arcteyx Atom LT on the really cold days.

        The fit is perfect. It looks good with a t-shirt but I can wear a fleece pullover underneath it comfortably. It stuffs down well and will be a great addition for summer backpacking. I think this will be one of my go-to layering piece on my November deer and elk hunts.

        for The Man

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: XL

        This was bought for The Man. He has worn it once or twice, but of the four I purchased this was the only one he really liked. The others had to be returned (which this company has excellent service and no questions asked!).

        Excellent fit (long torso, length was the defining factor also). Thin but very warm and substantial, not puffy and is less bulky.

        Great Vest

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        After buying this I hardly every where my Summit Series down jacket or other snowboarding shell jackets. This vest is extremely warm! I haven't gotten it terribly wet, but the little moisture I have experienced hasn't affected it at all. Granted our winter this year hasn't been bad in Utah, I have worn this vest and a lightweight sweatshirt underneath almost exclusively. The fit isn't perfect, the medium is a bit short and the large is a bit spacey, but when zipped up I feel the large is about right, I'm 6 foot 185 lbs.

        I wear a xlg in their sweater jacket should I get it in the vest also?

        Anyone else feel like this fits a little boxy? I wear a large in almost everything, and the large in this one was way too much through the body... Shoulders fit great and obviously the hem cinch makes that area adjustable, but can't help but feel like it doesn't hug my midsection at all
