Let’s not make things too complicated here: in 2015, our Deviator Hoody won a Backpacker Editors’ Choice Award for its combination of insulation and breathability. Among other compliments, they said, “Better pick a color you like, because you’ll never want to take this jacket off.” So now we’ve made a vest with the same Polartec Alpha insulation on the front and Polartec Power Grid on the back and hood—and no sleeves.

RATING AND REVIEWS

Stay warm when you needed but also sweat less

4

This vest is excellent for high output activities. I use this a lot when I am trail running but have also used it as a layer while ice climbing and also used it a bunch for ski touring. The fit is a little tight but when worn over a base layer it is not constrictive.

Great for what it is

5

It is thin, but that was expected. I use it right above my base layer when I don't have a hood on my base layer. It provides a little insulation and a hood.

Pretty perfect

Perfect layering piece. I'm the only one on my hikes not removing clothing as I can unzip and put on or slip down the hood. I'd like the inner zip pocket to be a little bigger for the XL cell phone but it will fit now.

Awesome light weight vest

Great light weight vest, keeps your core warm while active. (Hiking, running, biking.) Dries quick. Trim fit, which makes it a nice mid layer when cold out, or by itself when a little warmer out.

Use as a base layer for skiing. However, it doesn't seem to keep my as warm as other vests.

Vest is good. Colour is different than pictured

I bought this for Mountain biking in cold weather and it works well for layering under my ferrosi goody for that purpose. It breathes well and provides enough warmth to extend my riding season. The fit is snug for me. I'm 6' 205 lbs and pretty fit. I'm on the verge of needing an XL but this is fine because I'm using it to layer. If it was for more casual use I'd size up. My only issue with it is the colour. The blue is not the same as it looks on the website. It's almost purple really which is a bit disappointing.

Discussions

Does the vest have zippered side pockets like the jacket. It is hard to tell from the photo and the description does not clarify.

Hi Dan, Sorry for the late reply. Neither the Deviator Vest or the Jacket have zippered side pockets. Thanks for contacting OR, Paul
