Great all arounder (Review by Andrea)

Unlike some other puffer vests I have had, this one is a bit longer, which greatly improves the fit. I do wish the zippers had longer pull tabs on them...they have really tiny tabs that are hard to grab and pull up when you are in the middle of something/ trying to do it one handed.

Other than that, it is great!

Surprised how useful it is (Review by Ellie)

So often I carry a full down hoody when backcountry skiing but lately I have found this vest is really all I need given all the other clothes I am wearing. The hood is key. A down hood is just instant cozy warmth so please keep the hood! I love this vest for around town as well especially over a bulky wool sweater when it is a struggle to put on a full jacket. Maybe the only improvement could be smaller baffles (?) for the bigger woman in me...I buy this in a large because I like to layer and i do have bigger hips and the medium was just a tad snug.

So warm! (Review by Amanda)

This vest is so warm and comfortable. I've owned it for two years and it rarely sheds feathers and has held up great. Friend's have borrowed it and can't believe how warm it is! I'm 5'6", 125Lbs, 34C, and ordered a small. I can wear it over sweaters without it being too tight across the chest.

I love that it has a small stuff sack. I can easily throw it into my day pack on hiking trips without adding weight or taking up too much space.

I tried ordering the jacket version of this vest, because I love it so much, but was disappointed with the fit. The size S was too big, the XS too tight across the chest. I also didn't like the marshmallow arms it gave me.

Get the vest. You won't be disappointed!

Perfect, Versatile Vest (Review by Jordan)

This vest is perfect for rainy fall or winter days. Thick enough to keep you warm, but not bulky in the least bit. Very lightweight! LOVE that it has a hood!

Women's Aria Vest (Review by By Rainbow)

The vest feels very comfortable and not too bulky under a jacket,and also very comfy over a light jacket or sweater for warmer days. The fabric feels silky smooth. I really like the well fitted style that is long enough to keep my lower back warm.
