Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Warm; Excellent Fit Holy cow, this vest is extremely warm! Within seconds of putting it on, I can feel the warmth building in my core. It's very lightweight, so light it disappears into my body. I'm officially an Arc'teryx convert. The fit is suburb; the vest hugs my torso where all other brands gap or pull from being cut too square and straight. This results in more efficient heat retention. The synthetic fill in the shoulders and neck are an excellent addition that prevent heat loss due to damp down. Arc'teryx definitely goes the extra mile when designing women's clothing. I own several of their pieces and every one of them is just simply better than comparable products by other brands. Fit note: the XS fits true-to-size. If you're fuller in the bust, size up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from classy Have not tested in cold yet but upon arrival i was trying to decide between this one and another name brand vest. The fit is just for me. I have a hard time finding a very femenine fit to fit my curves, this is the only vest I have encountered that is perfect. Normally the bust doesnt fit and then the body is loose, this one fit perfectly in all areas.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A couple of issues for me The vest looked great, until I tried it on. It has an unusual cut. It has a pretty dramatic hourglass shape, and I found that the bottom hem was too big around, although the rest of the vest fit fine. I appreciate the weight savings by having no drawcord, but this vest just wouldn't work for me without one. The second issue was that the front panels are cut on a curve. If you unzip the vest, it is very apparent. The zippers do not lie in a straight line. They curve. What this did for me was cause the front of the vest to pooch out. I guess that wouldn't be so bad, but since I'm small chested, it mainly pooched out towards the bottom, which made me look pregnant. I have another vest made by a different company that has front panels that are not curved, and it does not have this issue. I hope Arcteryx redesigns this vest in the future, because I'd actually like to have one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece I have this vest in blue. It's a beautiful colour and the vest itself is incredibly warm. I have mostly been wearing it while out and about in the city on cool days, but I think I will get a lot of wear out of it as a mid-layer when out in the backcountry because it is so light. Another great Arc-teryx product!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Lightweight I do love this piece in my Wardrobe. Super Lightweight. Has an attached bag in one of the pockets that minimizes space for packable reasons. Flattering silhouette for women. Husband has two as well and LOVES them. Only one bummer is that it being down...the feathers sometimes pokes trough, so you have to be careful not to pull it the rest of the way. Just very carefully cut it off. Other than that no complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for! I needed a stylish lightweight warm vest for long walks with my dog. My rainwear is too bulky for clear sunny days and this vest is perect. I bought it at the storee in Vancouver and took it on its maiden walk today on a rare sunny weekend day. I noticed the down puffed up as I walked but thee beauty of this vest is that it has the warmth of down without thee bulk. Who wants to look like the Micheelin tire maan anyway? I also like the neck--not too high but flattering. I bought mine in black because it is my favouritee color and matches best with my sports tops. I am a size 6 but I bought a Medium because the cut is fitted. I'll be able to wear it over sweaters ss well as with sport tops. I love the way it looks with my skinny jeans too. The colors were all attractive and very cheerful but for me black is always best. Thanks for making such a great vest!
