Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Fabric: 15D nylon
Fill: 700 down
Price Paid: $80

Got this vest a couple of months ago after trying on many other products. It is very puffy and without a doubt the warmest vest per ounce of any I've tried including those by North Face, Marmot, MontBell etc. Quite surprising since it is made by Columbia, a company that is not usually thought of as a maker of high-end ultra-light gear. Total weight is 8 ozs on a digital postal scale and stuffs into its own pocket. This vest will keep you warm in all but the most extreme conditions.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

From cleaning up camp on cold mornings to drinking river-chilled beers after the sun sets, the Columbia Men's Alpino II Reversible Down Vest is up to the occasion. Insulated with 700-fill down, this Columbia vest insulates your core when a full down jacket would be overkill. Warm your digits in the two handwarmer pockets, and store your GPS, cell, or iPod in the chest pocket-the down will help keep the battery warm. If you're in the mood to switch up your look-or you spilled last night's dinner on it-reverse the Alpino Down Vest, and rock a new color.
