Whether you're enjoying a balmy day on the skin track or simply need an extra layer for those bitter days at the resort, the Icebreaker Men's Helix Down Vest offers plenty of warmth with minimal bulk. A durable, recycled polyester exterior doubles down on the wind- and water-resistant protection, while the MerinoLoft insulation provides subtle warmth and protects you from extreme temperatures--without weighing you down. A wool lining wicks away moisture and resists odor to keep you comfortable during those high-octane days. Ultimately, with its low-profile design and temperature regulating makeup, this vest works great as a midlayer on extra cold days or as a standalone piece during aerobic, stop-and-go pursuits.
