Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versital Vest I own a more traditional thicker down vest but needed one that could be used alone and layered. I am surprised at how warm this vest is and it is very comfortable layered, doesn't have that I'm stuffed feeling. Packs up tight and since it's synthetic it can be easily machine washed when needed. I typically wear a medium for shirts and sweaters, a large in jackets. The medium vest fits right for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm surprised ! It's great ! I really don't get it. I was going to get the Patagonia because I couldn't believe this vest would work. It is incredibly thin and light weight - yet keeps me warm in the cold - under my jacket - yet doesn't overheat me when shoveling - is perfect for around the house - no matter the temperature -- I really don't get it. Very happy with product and price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from REI Revelcloud Vest... It's an awesome vest (especially in black; it's a Matte type of color)... I purchased the vest in a Medium on 8/31/2015 and exchanged it for a Large on 9/4/2015 because the Medium did not fit well. I have purchased the Revelcloud vest in a Medium in the past (12/6/2013) and it fit well in a Medium (almost like the current Large fits).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit and comfort The vest is extremely comfortable and warm without being too bulky. Wore it skiing under a shell jacket and was toasty warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight yet warm I bought this for summer hiking we were doing at Glacier National Park, where mornings can be "brisk." It worked great over a flannel shirt: warm, very lightweight and even nice looking (said my wife). It is easy to shed and stuff in the back pack. Probably not warm enough for winter, but probably great for the other 3 seasons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from husband loves it! My husband bought this for himself and is living in it. So I guess he likes it. The price and lightweight materials were the primary reasons he purchased this product. We've had great luck with REI branded products and have not been disappointed.

Is it too warm/heavy to wear in the summer?

Asked by: JBS12
In general, the Revelcloud Vest can be worn in the summer. At under 10 oz. it is not too heavy. Since peoples tolerance to cold and heat varies so much, we can only say that the Revelcloud Vest will be fine for some people in the summer.
