Super light and comfy


  • Nice fit
  • Light weight


  • Lost a few feathers

I like this vest for throwing in the pack (stuffed into its pocket) as some back-up insulation. I have had a few feathers escape which concerned me some, but nothing major. The baffles in this vest are fairly small in size and not as full comparing to a Patagonia, but this keeps it nice and light
