Derek W.wrote a review of GoLite Cady 2477 Synthetic Insulated Vest - Men's on March 9, 2010
This is a great piece of gear and I am glad I took a chance (not one review online... anywhere), though GoLite has never disappointed. This thing has so many bloody features it's unreal. Though thin the exterior material feels durable if taken care of, it is very smooth and nice feeling to the touch. Perhaps best with a layer over it, though it is windproof. There are two waist drawstring locks. The handwarmer pockets have a grrreat feeling, thick, very substantial feeling material that make me want to place my hands there when they aren't even cold. There's an MP3/phone pocket interior chest and another large interior pocket that runs lengthways along the right hip area. The neck is a little loose to allow for layering. The armholes fit nice and snug with elastic around the perimeters. I am 6' 180lbs and the large fits like a champ. Good length hitting below beltline. Not being down I do think $120 is a little high but for $84.00 I think it's a good value (though admittedly I bought this from geartrade.com). Most importantly: warmth. I live in eastern NC so it's impossible for me to remark too incredibly about its warmth in alpine conditions but I can say that it does feel very warm in the coastal February breeze which, with the humidity can be biting. Also includes a stuff sack.
