Well fitting super light core insulator.


  • Light
  • Good fit
  • Large armpit holes (helps breathability)


  • Short hem (torso) length

This vest is 800 fill with a lighter ripstop shell with dwr finish. It has  two internal dump pockets, (great for gloves or something you want to keep warm or dry out) and two fleece lined zippered hand pockets (down on the outside of the hands when inserted.)

It has a drawstring hem with cord locks and a 3 inch fleece lined collar. I got a medium and the fit is snug (5.10  175 lbs) but the larger arm holes alow lighter layering underneath without restriction. The larger arm holes also allow great armpit venting and this makes it a great layering piece. If I was goiing to layer more than a light shirt underneath I would size up to large, but as a core insulator it should fit snug to trap heat.

It is very compressible and light, very pleased with the quality. I wish the vest was a little longer at times in the torso, especially when I wear it without an over layer.
