Marmot Vests are the bests. You don't have to take my word for it, but I think you should. The Marmot Women's DriClime Vest is my little gift to you for those outdoor excursions when you want an ultralight, compact, and comfortable vest that allows maximum maneuverability while keeping you cool, both literally and figuratively. This vest is wind and water resistant while offering a breathable interior. It also comes for men! How thoughtful!
In case you were wondering, Marmot Vests also come in down-filled designs. The Men's Guides Down Vest is perfect for when you need something warm to fit over sweatshirts or a hoody while being able to fit under a larger winter coat. The 650 goose down fill will keep you warm and comfortable while providing protection for your neck with the high neckline, preventing wind from breaking in.
If you happen to be looking for a comfortable and durable Marmot Vest, take a peek at the Women's Tempo Vest. When the weather cools down, this vest keeps you comfortable and warm on your core while allowing your arms full freedom whether you're hiking, climbing, or performing any activity which requires flexibility. Sorry for saying peek.
