Everything as expected. Good pockets outside and inside. Personally a little bigger than expected. Still very good product. Its a keeper.

Great layering vest. Maybe not as full as you’d expect. But excellent piece for the price.

I was given this product by Backcountry, but this review Is my personal opinion. This vest is not flashy or overly complex, but it is a great option to add another layer or add some depth to an outfit. I appreciate the simplicity of it and its ability to keep me warm, which is what you should expect from a puffy vest. The synthetic insulation is made from recycled material, which is always a plus, but it also does a decent job of keeping your core warm for how much material is actually there. This vest is not super puffy, so it actually makes a great inner layer underneath an outer jacket or sweatshirt and adds enough warmth without feeling like you have a ton of layers on. It also works great over a flannel or sweater for a nicer look when out getting dinner or hitting up the beer gardens on a chilly fall afternoon. The inside also has a pocket which is a nice feature for a wallet or even your phone. The build quality is good, and the stitching seems like it can handle some abuse. Overall, it is a simple vest and at its price, you should not be expecting something crazy, but it is a great option if you’re looking to add a puffy vest to your wardrobe.


Is the Stoic Puffer vest real think and puffy or is it thinner like the Northface Thermoball?
