Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great vest - draw-chord is too long I bought this in March and it is my second REI down vest; I still have the first one I bought ten years ago. This one was on sale and I got the black. I love the light weight and fit, and it is a great insulator. However, the draw chords are too long for my liking. I have wide shoulders and slim hips, so have to draw the vest in which causes the chords to hang down several inches and they are always getting caught on things as I walk by.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very lightweight and warm enough but could improve First the things I love about this vest. I love the feather light weight; the ability to fold the vest into its own pocket and the fact that it kept me very warm in the sudden cold weather at Bryce Canyon National Park during my recent trip. However, I gave it 4 stars because of the material that seems to be very porous -- the feathers keep coming out of the vest and it is not SAND repellant!!! That's right sand. I was at Horseshoe Bend, Page on a very windy day and I forgot my wind-breaker so I was wearing a fleece sweater and this vest on top. The wind was so strong and now I have a bunch of sand inside the vest. I didn't get to try it in the rain yet so I can't tell if it would stay dry as promised or not. I attached a video here to show how strong the wind is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit, awesome color I bought this mostly because it was on clearance, but I am so glad that I did. I find myself wearing it several times a week because it is so cute! I am 5'7", 140 lbs with a reallllly small chest and I have a size small and it fits great. Perfect addition to my wardrobe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great go-to vest I am very satisfied with this purchase. Best is light, warm, and fits well. I am 5'4" 117 pounds and the XS is perfect. I wear this around town instead of a jacket on cool days and as an extra layer to stay warm on really cold days. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Vest I bought this vest on sale while visiting Utah. I went skiing the next day and wore it under my thin coat. I stayed warm the whole day. I absolutely love this vest!! I can't wait to buy more in different colors. It is perfect over a long sleeve shirt in the Georgia winters! Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great down vest! I'm a reluctant vest's Very warm, light weight, fits well...the down doesn't escape. I usually buy North Face winter gear but this is a great bargain and just as great (better because of the price) than the North Face option.

How do I fold the vest as shown in the last product picture?

Asked by: Threeunderpar
Begin by turning the left hand pocket inside out. Once the pocket is inside out begin stuffing the jacket into the pocket. Once the jacket is stuffed, you will be able to zip the pocket closed.
