Get all-weather utility in this do-it-all, midweight insulated vest for women from The North Face. Its PrimaLoft(R) ThermoBall(TM) insulation is as compressible as down and insulates when wet.

- REI

The North Face Women's ThermoBall Insulated Vest provides ample warmth without weighing you down. Constructed with a nylon shell that's treated with a Durable Water Repellant, this insulated vest repels light rain and snow showers from dampening your outdoor adventures. The ThermoBall Insulated Vest really shines as a toasty, highly versatile midlayer under a waterproof shell. Wear it skiing, climbing, or bring it with on trips into the backcountry. The vest's ThermoBall insulation takes care of business, shielding you from freezing temperatures with its down-like clusters of synthetic insulation. However, unlike down which loses insulating properties when it's wet, ThermoBall insulation won't sacrifice warmth once moisture seeps in. This makes it an exceptional choice for layering on wet winter days and soggy autumn excursions. In addition, the vest's feminine quilt pattern delivers a chic, streamlined style that makes it easy to throw under a jacket and over a base layer.

The North Face Women's ThermoBall Vest is an insulated vest for chilly, damp outdoor adventures. As fall begins to dissipate a long sleeve base layer soon won't be enough, so throw on a vest to warm the core and the heat will seep towards your extremities. PrimaLoft ThermoBall is a super-neat synthetic Insulation, which mimics down by not only keeping you warm, but compressing down pretty darn small. The mimic stops there however, as it has the ability to resist moisture, keeping you warm even if it gets wet. Stow it in its pocket when not in use and you'll bArely notice it in your pack. You'll be thankful you have it once you slip it on over your base layer, or even wear it under your hardshell for an extra boost of warmth.
