Mountain Hardwear Windstopper Tech Vest
Source: received it as a personal gift
- No interior pockets
- Uncomfortable collar
The vest is very thin making it great as a layering piece. Like the Tech Jacket, the collar wasn't incredibly uncomfortable. The sizing wasn't as much of an issue as it is more of a layering item.
I am 5'11" and 180lbs and wear a large in most items. For this vest, I had to get an extra large and the body fit fine in the shoulders and chest but it barely made my waist.

Price Paid: $79 limited color selection
Beautifully crafted mid layer vest. Meets all claims. Both warm and light weight.
No inside pocket but with 3 outer pockets an insider is not needed.
Fabric: gore windstopper fleece
Price Paid: $120
Windstopper fleece delivers. The jacket is bombproof in wind. Real Sierra wind on the Carson Pass. The pants are really nice fit great and are super warm with tights underneath. The vest is one MUST HAVE. It does so many things. My favorite is skiing with the vest and a light fleece, good to 20F with no precip. Light, warm, this stuff really works.
