Why We Like The SAM Freedom Vest

The sleek exterior of the SAM Freedom Vest is balanced with its chunky zipper, giving our look a unique aesthetic, while the down insulation provides the optimal warmth needed to enjoy cold evening strolls.


  • Sleek exterior is water-resistant and easy to wipe clean
  • Goose down insulation provides highly-compressible warmth
  • Hand pockets ensure your fingers don't get ice-cold
  • Item runs small, so we recommend sizing up for best fit

Glossy Warm Wind Resistant High Quality

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:
5' 8"

I have always purchased SAM. and always happy I did. SAM. is really consistent, year after year, their XS, S, M is the same, so if your body hasn't changed and you were a M last year, you're going to be a M this season too. Sizing: they do run small, I'm always an XS or S, and in SAM., as always, I'm a Small. It's narrow in the waist and hits just below hip bone. Color: exactly as photo shows, i.e., a real bright glossy cherry red. I Warmth & Wind Resistance: It's warm, the filling is really dense and the zippers zip and is part of how wind resistant SAM is. Water: these SAM.s are - just as they say = very water resistant but not waterproof. when they do get wet, when I get inside I wipe moisture off and let them air dry, I don't wear them in heavy rain and if I get caught in heavy rain I put I get a plastic poncho to put over them. when they have gotten wet and I air dry, the filling isn't impacted, again, the filling is really dense. Shipping: grateful that BackCountry always packs these in a sturdy box so when I get them - my 2nd SAM/ purchase via BackCountry, it's not crushed. p.s. (I've bought (5) other SAM. puffers over the years at other stores closer to me, they last as good as new for about 2 years ;-)

Great service!

Size Bought:
5' 7"

Unlike the other reviewer I had a great experience. I was able to quickly return my items and they sent me a return label. I also spoke with someone directly on the phone to place a new order as the vest was a bit small. The product was in new and unused condition. Very happy with the process and the company. I will be a returning customer! Thank you Backcountry!!

Used & ripped

I returned this product before using it

I was sent a used and ripped vest. It smelled like someone’s perfume when I took it out of the bag. The return process was painful. My gearhead is never around and it took me an hour worth of chats just to get a refund the thing looks like a garbage bag.
