RATING AND REVIEWS

Just love this vest!

5

Really great product. I use it as a mid-layer when climbing. This keeps my body warm without adding bulk along my arms. So I am warm and still have good movement freedom. Oh, and it is great too when I feel cold in the house.

Love the vest. Very neat material on the inside wasn't what I was expecting from the pics. Even lighter than I was expecting

Exellent Vest

5

Great warmth wether I'm on a casual stroke or doing high intensity activities. Manages heat and moisture better than many other jackets I've owned.

Nice lightweight vest

Great vest for layering in all seasons. It's not overly thick and bulky, like some vest, but provides great insulation to your core. I personally love bests for high-output activities such as mountain running, but I have even used this vest under a shell to add a bit of warmth while skiing. Great piece!

Great Vest

I'll admit, I first purchased this vest as an impulse buy as opposed to seeking this vest out for my specific needs (therefore no vested interest in the product). Overall this vest is excellent and exceeded my expectations. It's two best benefits are that it is warm and insulates very well and it is lightweight and packs down very small (especially when combined with an OR Air Purge DrySac). I've used this vest on a 5 day hiking trip in British Columbia, and during 5-10˚C weather with on/off rain showers, I combined the vest with a long underwear baselayer, gloves and a hard shell and I was very comfortable and kept at a fairly stable body temperature despite the weather conditions. Fits great and will recommend for hiking, skiing, and exercising on colder days. The only con is the side pockets do not have zippers so depending on what it is combined with, it may be difficult to store a pair of gloves or hat.

Great outdoor styled vest

Nice vest that is warm enough without being too warm. It breaths well while also shedding a light sprinkle of rain and blocking the wind. This will be a great functional piece for my outdoor pursuits.

Hi! Based on the photo no hand warmer pocket zips and a waist draw cord? KJM
