I've yet to find a North Face product that I didn't like. This ranks 5 stars along with every single other of their products. I went with this vest because I wanted something warm and didn't want a vest with just a little down, I wanted warm & lots of down without being too bulky. This is it. A little poofy, but not too much to where it's unflattering. The length is great and runs true to size. I got a small as I typically do, 5'2" & 118 lbs. I have never purchased anything with down as the insulator before and I'm very pleased, it's very warm and super light.
This vest is perfect because it keeps my body incredibly warm, but it doesn't add the bulk of a coat. I feel like I have better mobility of my arms while wearing this vest. It's also flattering on the waistline because it cuts in slightly. It's super cozy, I wear it every time I can. I absolutely love this product!
I purchased this vest for my girlfriend for Christmas. She ended up in Park City skiing for the holiday and got some good use out of it. Most days she was able to wear just the vest and a base layer and was more than warm enough for the slopes. Needless to say, I got major brownie points ;)
I got this vest for my wife and she loves it every much. She was hoping to get one in white but the black is acceptable. It really looks good when she put it on. More importantly, it's light weight and keep her warm during the cool to cold weather.
I love NF and the quality of this vest BUT it fits funny. I'm 5'11", about 140lbs and the Medium was way too wide & way too short.I will be returning it and on the search for a longer, more slimming one!
"Would definitely recommend for anyone that likes warmth without the bulky sleeves"
I bought this for my wife after owning the mens equivalent vest. Love them both! Toasty warm without the bulky sleeves. Great fit and true to size. some brands run short in the torso length but this is perfect. Bought the older brown color and love it.
"I love this vest and it is a key item in my wardrobe."
I absolutely love this vest! I have the white one, which does get dirty faster than normal, but I don't even care because it is so awesome. It is perfect for a cold winter day and I am always warm wearing it. Definitely worth the money!
5'4'', 110 lbs, got the extra small, and it fits snugly! This vest is pretty poofy, but I figure it's the 700 fill down, which is what's keeping me so warm! It's so light and I love how I don't feel like I'm being suffocated by layers of heavy fleece, which is what I have to wear when I'm not wearing the vest underneath a waterproof layer. I like having my arms free for doing things such as writing reviews or making cookies in the snow or playing hangman. Yep.
"Waterproof, comfortable, and warm! Ultimate piece!"
This jacket fits perfect just below my hip line. The fleece lined neck is great. It's super puffy but also light. It can be stuffed into it's own pocket. I love it. It also holds up in a west coast rain/snow storm. Haven't tested it back out east yet. Great buy. The only issue I have with it is that the color on the site (blue) is much brighter than it turned out. It's actually very pastel. I'm going to keep it anyway due to it's versatility.
You cannot be cold in the vest! Just impossible. It's like wearing a hug on a cold day. Just be aware that it's pretty poofy, so if you are planning on wearing it under a jacket, it's a bit of a squeeze :)
awesome vest, fits comfortably under hoodies and keeps my fiance extra warm. she actually has back issues, so the extra warmth on her back keeps her from cramping up. definitely recomment. the blue is a sharp color. love it!
