Recent Down Insulated Vest Reviews

L.L.Bean Women's Scrunch Down Vest

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Awesome! Very comfortable, warm, and well designed w/quality workmanship; excellent tailoring to layer with while also being stylish too. In keeping w/the LL Bean reputation, a great down vest for the money! On sale now too ; ) Full review

REI Men's Therum Down Vest

rated 4.5 of 5 stars For the price it is a great vest. Hydrophobic down (water resistant), wind proof shell (about 55mph) two hand warmer pockets, a chest pocket and a media pocket with a cord port plus a hem cinch to keep out the wind. It is very light and has a comfortable fit. Fits well and comfortable, cinch waist, has a DWR shell and water resistant down. It's a vest so it breathes OK. It is 650 fill and warm. Its cut allows one to layer underneath. Full review

MontBell Men's UL Down Vest

rated 4 of 5 stars Great for layering! Montbell’s UL Down Vest is a great addition to a layering system that will help keep you warm while weighing about the same as your average t-shirt. It is not the top of the class, but for the price, weight savings, and effectiveness, I say it is a good choice. I have had my vest for over 2 years now. It went with me on the first 1,000 miles of the AT and on several overnight and weekend trips locally. If I am not wearing it I have it rolled up and in the stuff sack that was… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Men's Ghost Whisperer Down Vest

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Sure, this vest only weighs 5 oz, but what are you really getting? I only paid 1/5 the price at a closeout sale, but it only weighs 4oz less than the down jacket I picked up at Walmart for $19.98 (1/12th the price)! Cut the sleeves out and there you are. The quality of this vest isn't THAT much better than the cheap Walmart jacket either. And they are both made in China. Though the retail price on this vest is $245!! Ridiculous in my opinion. I love my MH rain jacket, but I'm not very impressed… Full review

Patagonia Men's Down Sweater Vest

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a great vest for everyday use, but is also durable enough to use in many outdoor activities. Made from light and fluffy 800 fill down, this vest keeps your core warm and can pack down smaller than a softball. Because Patagonia makes gear that's out of my price range, I either have to save up some money for a while to get what I want, or I have to wait for things to go on sale (or sometimes both). At $179 MSRP, this vest was way out of my price range until last year when my local gear shop… Full review

Big Agnes Late Lunch Vest

rated 4 of 5 stars ** Please see the addendum at the end of this review Big Agnes has applied their knowledge of down to their foray into apparel. The women’s Late Lunch Vest uses 700 fill power DownTek water repellent down, and they have applied their Insotect Flow vertical baffles which are designed to keep the wearer warm. While the down does shuck water, and the vest is warm, a major drawback is the vest’s fit. Warmth, durability, quality—fantastic! Fit…mmm – needs some tweaking. Company Specs Mid-weight… Full review

Patagonia Men's Ultralight Down Vest

rated 5 of 5 stars I had never owned a down vest before, but the Patagonia Ultralight Down Vest is worth the investment. I have found that this vest can be used hiking, biking, around town, working outside or downstairs in my basement (very cold)!! It is an excellent core warmer and doesn't weigh anything. You forget you have it on. I would recommend this as an important part of your outdoor apparel. The Patagonia Ultralight Down Vest is going to become a favorite new piece in your outdoor collection. The vest is… Full review

The North Face Men's Nuptse Vest

rated 5 of 5 stars More than enough for anything short of Arctic conditions, this vest has far more utility than I hoped for. This was a clearance item, an impulse buy, and a dam'd good one. I have never bought a down vest in 50+ years of backpacking, so this is a new experience for me. This thing was very warm when I tried it on in the store. Seriously, I have never warmed up so fast from a single piece of clothing (the small store (<1500' sq) was very cold as the AC was on full blast). Between this and my Marmot… Full review

Outdoor Research Aria Down Vest

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a great vest that is warm and lightweight. It is a favorite of mine on and off the trail. The Aria Down Vest by Outdoor Research is one of my backcountry staples. I bought one last year and, due to its versatility (and multitude of color options!), convinced myself to purchase a second one this year! Unlike other down vests I have tried, the fit is slim — it doesn't turn you into a marshmallow — but not restrictive. It's warm yet lightweight and the hood gives me an extra layer of warmth.
