The Patagonia Women's Down Sweater Vest is an insulated vest for hiking, camping, and just plain warming up your core. The Down Sweater Vest uses 800 fill power goose down to pack into the horizontal baffles for wrapping warmth around your center. The baffles at the front are slightly larger than the ones at the side panels, helping to provide a more contoured shape that is also longer in the torso than previous models. Just cinch down the hem cord from inside the hand pockets to trap heat in and keep drafts out. The lightweight recycled polyester shell has a high tear-strength so you can take on whatever the trail throws at you and it's also coated with a durable water repellent so light rain or snow can simply be brushed away. The internal pocket holds an mp3 player when you're wearing it, and tucks the whole vest inside it when you're not. Try saying no to 8.4 ounces in your pack when it's that small in size.

"This vest is impressively warm for its weight"
I actually thought this vest would be thicker than it is. But I was pleasantly surprised that it provided super core warmth in below-freezing weather. The lightweight nature makes it easily layerable, which is another plus.
The Patagonia Down Sweater Vest was my daughter's main wishlist item. She snowboards, hikes, sails, kayaks, runs, bikes, springboard dives and walks her boyfriend's dog, among other activities. This lightweight vest keeps her warm for all her activities. It goes with just about everything and everywhere. She wears it with athlete wear, jeans, leggings, skirts and dresses. Did I mention that she looks bad ass cute in it, too?
As the temps dropped into the 20s, this vest kept me exceptionally warm. It's also quite fashionable without being bulky. It's a little long, so for a short person the neck hits pretty high but when it is coldest out, this will be helpful. I got it in the navy color and the contrasting turquoise is really pretty.
