- REI refers to the men's version

Even though it looks like it's stuffed with fluffy down insulation, The North Face Men's ThermoBall Insulated Vest is made without so much as plucking a single feather from a goose. Instead of relying on down insulation, it's packing Primaloft ThermoBall

- Mountain Gear refers to the men's version

Even though it doesn't look like it, The North Face made its Men's ThermoBall Insulated Vest without plucking a single feather off of a goose's back. PrimaLoft's synthetic ThermoBall insulation mimics the round clusters that make up down insulation in order to combine the benefits of down with synthetic. That means that this vest feels just as warm as 600-fill down insulation, weighs as little as a down vest, and still retains its warmth in wet weather like synthetic. The ThermoBall also compresses into one of its zippered hand pockets, which is excellent news for backpackers, skiers, and climbers. Its nylon shell is sure to keep this vest strong through many years of adventures.
