Here's what other sites are saying:

Worth its weight in gold when the sun dips below the horizon, our Down Sweater Vest keeps its focus simple: core warmth. It traps your hard-earned heat with high-loft, 800-fill-power Advanced Global Traceable Down (goose down certified by NSF International, traced from parent farm to apparel factory to help ensure that the birds are not force-fed or live-plucked) and its minimalist design practically floats-it's so compact that it stuffs into an internal pocket (with a carabiner clip-in loop). The 100% recycled polyester shell with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish provides wind and weather protection, while quilting lines stabilize the down and accentuate the contoured fit. The drawcord hem tightens from inside the zippered handwarmer pockets, and nylon-bound elastic armholes seal in heat.

Not to mention, vest is best--specifically the Patagonia Women's Down Sweater Vest. Designed to maintain core warmth, the Down Sweater Vest features high-loft, 800-fill Traceable Down insulation, which traps that hard-earned heat and promotes effortless temperature regulation--without making you feel as though you're a tire-toting inanimate object. Additionally, the Traceable Down is certified by NSF (an independent third party) and is derived from geese that are never force-fed or live-plucked, meaning you can feel good about feeling good and cozy. A durable shell protects the down insulation from abrasive obstacles and daily wear, while the DWR treatment fends off light moisture build-up and precipitation. Meanwhile, an adjustable hem seals in warmth, and the contoured, slim fit provides a flattering, chic fit. So whether you're perusing the winter farmer's market in search of fresh greens or settling in for a long day of work at the computer, the Down Sweater Vest assures dependable style and warmth.
