Arc'teryx Men's Atom LT Vest

rated 5 of 5 stars This is the perfect vest! Make sure you try it on store to get the right fit, but it works as a perfect mid layer and an outer layer in slightly warmer weather. I've used it to hike, bike, backpack, sleep, and I even wear it to work as it's a pretty neutral and stylish vest. Overall 5/5. Full review

Patagonia Men's Better Sweater Vest

rated 4 of 5 stars The Better Sweater Vest is a slimmer fleece-like vest that functions well for both outdoor and casual pursuits. Conditions: In January 2015, I put a call out for recommendations (link to thread) to the Trailspace community for good-quality vests that could pull double duty; warm enough for cold season layering, stylish enough for occasional wear in business casual situations. After looking at many suggestions and weighing prices, I settled on the Patagonia Better Sweater Vest. Fortunately, I found… Full review

The North Face Men's Denali Vest

rated 4 of 5 stars One of my better vests, I usually go to if I want to wear a vest even though I have other vests. Does what it needs to do very well. Got it in size XXL. Had to send it in for worn out zipper pulls, but that was after many years of use. I only had to pay postage to send it back to the mothership North Face manufacturer. Repairs are free.  Full review

Sierra Designs Backcountry Vest

rated 5 of 5 stars This vest has been in heavy backcountry, carpentry, indoor and outdoor, casual evening dress use for 20 plus years and is still going strong. I have looked at all brands including Sierra Designs for over 10 years to replace it. Its qualities and versatility cannot be matched by any product made today that I can find. Everyone I have met and talked to would like to know where to get one. I will work with anyone and do whatever it takes to have another one produced. This vest is the most important… Full review

Patagonia Men's Ultralight Down Vest

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The thin profile allows for good layering options. Retains heat well and inner cords allow for getting a very good fit. I have owned many varieties of vests over the years. This vest packs easily for trips and holds its shape. I have been in very cold temperatures with this vest and it does a good job of keeping my torso warm. I have worn vests that are lower in price and nearly as comfortable and useful. You certainly pay for the name. Value is not one of the strengths of this vest. Overall the… Full review

L.L.Bean Women's Scrunch Down Vest

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Awesome! Very comfortable, warm, and well designed w/quality workmanship; excellent tailoring to layer with while also being stylish too. In keeping w/the LL Bean reputation, a great down vest for the money! On sale now too ; ) Full review

REI Men's Therum Down Vest

rated 4.5 of 5 stars For the price it is a great vest. Hydrophobic down (water resistant), wind proof shell (about 55mph) two hand warmer pockets, a chest pocket and a media pocket with a cord port plus a hem cinch to keep out the wind. It is very light and has a comfortable fit. Fits well and comfortable, cinch waist, has a DWR shell and water resistant down. It's a vest so it breathes OK. It is 650 fill and warm. Its cut allows one to layer underneath. Full review

MontBell Men's UL Down Vest

rated 4 of 5 stars Great for layering! Montbell’s UL Down Vest is a great addition to a layering system that will help keep you warm while weighing about the same as your average t-shirt. It is not the top of the class, but for the price, weight savings, and effectiveness, I say it is a good choice. I have had my vest for over 2 years now. It went with me on the first 1,000 miles of the AT and on several overnight and weekend trips locally. If I am not wearing it I have it rolled up and in the stuff sack that was… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Men's Ghost Whisperer Down Vest

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Sure, this vest only weighs 5 oz, but what are you really getting? I only paid 1/5 the price at a closeout sale, but it only weighs 4oz less than the down jacket I picked up at Walmart for $19.98 (1/12th the price)! Cut the sleeves out and there you are. The quality of this vest isn't THAT much better than the cheap Walmart jacket either. And they are both made in China. Though the retail price on this vest is $245!! Ridiculous in my opinion. I love my MH rain jacket, but I'm not very impressed… Full review
