Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The difference between completing your objective and tucking your tail between your legs can be due to something as simple as being cold. It sounds simple, but far too many climbers get into trouble because they're not keeping their core warm throughout their adventure. Since The North Face brought in the Men's Quince Down Vest, weighing in at a paltry 9 ounces, there's really just no reason to fail from cold anymore. Extremely compressible 800-fill down lets you keep warm all day, without adding significant weight along the way or taking up large amounts of room in your pack. The harness-compatible fit of all of The North Face's Summit Series pieces means that you can wear this on the gnarliest of your adventures, without worrying about impeding your movement. The DWR treatment lets you wear this as an outer piece if things are cold enough or, if things get a bit wet, you can throw it on under your shell and heat things up from the inside.
