Here's what other sites are saying:
This simple, light, minimalist down sweater vest practically floats away. Its 800-fill-power down traps heat in alpine conditions, yet it's so compact that it stuffs into an internal pocket.
Patagonia's Down Sweater Vest features a lightweight, windproof and water-resistent shell with a high tear-strength and a Deluge DWR (durable water repellent) finish, elastic binding at the armholes, and a drawcord hem.
Worth its weight in gold when the sun dips below the horizon, our Down Sweater Vest keeps its focus simple: core warmth. It traps your hard-earned heat with 800-fill-power 100% Traceable Down (goose down that can be traced back to birds that were never force-fed, never live-plucked) and its minimalist design practically floats?it?s so compact that it stuffs into an internal pocket (with a carabiner clip-in loop). The 100% recycled polyester ripstop shell with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish provides wind and weather protection as well as high tear-strength, while quilting lines stabilize the down and accentuate the contoured fit. The drawcord hem tightens from inside the zippered handwarmer pockets, and nylon-bound elastic armholes seal in heat.
Layers are lovely not just in cakes, although vanilla cake tiers intermixed with dark chocolate buttercream and salted caramel frosting is damn hard to be beat. Yet the Patagonia Women's Down Sweater Vest comes awfully damn close. This lightweight, compressible vest received a makeover for 2014 to flatter your figure, to slide easily beneath your weatherproof snow shell or climbing jacket, and to keep your eco conscience happy. Given how squishy this little vest is, you can cram it into a cranny in your bag for guaranteed core warmth whether you're backpacking at altitude or traveling to Canada for the holidays.Ripstop rocks and 100% recycled ripstop is even better. The eco-friendly fabric resists pulls and scratches for long-wearing durability. The DWR finish turns moisture into liquid roller balls that fall off your vest instead of lying around and sinking in. The 800-fill Traceable Down uses feathers from geese that have been humanely treated. Two hand pockets give your weary paws a warm place to rest. Whether you're layering up to survive a brutally cold commute or getting ready to enjoy some fresh spring corn, this sleek and slim vest should be a part of your ultimate ensemble.
