Playing rough in frosty conditions can literally knock the stuffing out of some lightweight down vests. That's why Patagonia's newly-enhanced Down Vest uses a tough variable ripstop fabric that can take the slides, slips and falls without losing the fluff (the variable ripstop yarns also create a cool cross dye color design). Patagonia recently revised the outer face material without compromising the weight, so both the shell and lining remain downproof, highly water repellant and lighter than a lot of similar reinforced alpine down designs. A newly configured quilted panel construction helps reduce bulk while improving your upper body mobility for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Stretch Spandex armholes enhance the overall range of motion.

The Patagonia Women's Down Vest provides copious core insulation. If you don't like the bulk of a full-on down jacket or sweater, choose this vest as your insulating ally. Revised for this season, this vest features improved shaping and quilting for a less burly and more girly look. Even the handwarmer pockets are hidden by invisible zippers. There's a knit lining at the neck for comfort as you zip the vest for full thermal effect, and the lining is super-supple, enough so to be worn next-to-skin. The carefully-chosen goose down will last through many a compression, and you get an interior stash pocket for stashing things that need stashing.
