The best is a vest that's lighter than the rest, or so it goes. While you won't win any rhyming awards with that line, people will understand your inspiration when they see you wearing the Mountain Hardwear Women's Thermostatic Insulated Vest. At a teensy-tiny light weight of half a pound, this feminine vest keeps it airy-light and rocks with skinny jeans and cashmere turtleneck when you're holiday shopping with your niece, or keeps you toasty (but not roasty) under your hardshell for a full day of spring skiing. Geese are mean but their feathers are nice and warm. Just like the animal from whence it came, down has a few failings, namely it is expensive and loses all insulating capacity when wet. The folks at Mountain Hardwear engineered a solution to the down dilemma, Thermal. Q Elite, and stuffed the Thermostatic Vest full of it. This synthetic insulation combines several different densities of fibers, resulting a 3-D grid structure that mimics the lattice-like network created by down fibers. Air gets trapped within the grid, creating a barrier between your warm body air and cold air from the environment, so you stay warmer, longer. Unlike down, Thermal. Q Elite insulation is water-resistant, and therefore water-tolerant, so a little drizzle or light flurry won't adversely affect the insulation's ability to keep you warm. A diamond quilting pattern holds the insulation in place as well ups the fashion-factor on this vest. Hand-warmer pockets zip for safe key storage, and one of the pockets acts as a storage pouch for the vest. Dual hem drawcords seal in warmth, and the slim silhouette makes for easy layering over or under this vest.
