Down vests, while awesome, always made you look like the Michelin Man. That is, until The North Face Men's Aconcagua Vest came along. Luckily, The North Face designed the Men's Aconcagua Vest with warmth and style both in mind. Baffle-stitched 550-fill power down provides light, efficient insulation without puffing you up like a blowfish. The Aconcagua fits easily under trim shells due to its svelte shape, and looks even better over a buttondown shirt or a sweater when you're raking leaves in the yard.

The North Face Aconcagua Down Vest provides the core warmth you want without the poofy life-jacket look of many down vests. While synthetic Heatseeker insulation resides in the shoulders and pockets, 500-fill down lives throughout the rest of the vest. The Aconcagua offers plenty of warmth and protection as a stand-alone, and can also be zipped into compatible shells from The North Face when the weather gets really nasty and cold. Designed with a durable ripstop exterior that consists of over 50% recycled materials, this rugged down vest excels at running errands around town and layering for winter adventures. The Aconcagua also stows in its own left-hand pocket, which makes it perfect for backpacking. The elastic binding at the arm-holes shuts out drafts comfortably, and the drawstring hem lets you wear it loose around the bottom or sealed up tight.
