I have other Icebreaker vests from recent years and love them, wearing them over a light to midweight baselayer and under an outer layer, such as the Quantum long sleeve zip. This combo keeps me warm and comfortable in coastal New England winters, running with my dogs on the beach. I am able to be comfortable outdoors and refrain from getting wet and sweaty. This vest is a further refinement in detail and fit. It has a tighter weave, so is more windproof. It has slight baffles, which give it more insulation, without adding weight and the added stretch panels, means it follows the contours of your body better, for again more a more dialed in fit, which moves with your body. I have some trouble with my other Icebreaker vests fitting my neck. They are both a little tight, which can make it uncomfortable. The Descender is very comfy around my neck...not too tight not loose either. If vest are part of your outerwear, check this one out. I don't usually write reviews, but always love reading them, if I am interested in a product, so I hope this will help someone else out!
