Simple, lightweight core warmth. The Down Sweater Vest’s minimalist design practically floats; its ethically sourced and traceable 800-fill-power down traps heat in alpine conditions, yet it’s so compact that it stuffs into an internal pocket (with a carabiner clip-in loop). The revised 100% recycled polyester shell with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish provides wind and weather protection as well as a high tear-strength; updated quilting lines stabilize the down; now with a more contoured fit and slightly longer torso. The drawcord hem tightens from inside the zippered handwarmer pockets, and nylon-bound elastic armholes seal in heat.

* This product does not qualify for shipping to all countries.

Features

  • New shell fabric has an updated ripstop pattern, and like the liner, is still a 100% recycled polyester fabric with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish
  • Traceable Down (third-party-verified, non-live-plucked, non-force-fed) 800-fill-power goose down
  • Updated fit is more contoured and has a longer hem; horizontal quilt lines in body and narrow horizontal quilt lines on side panels
  • Center-front vislon zipper has wicking interior storm flap and zipper garage at chin for next-to-skin comfort
  • Two secure handwarmer pockets have vislon zippers and garages; internal zippered chest pocket self-stuffs and has a carabiner clip-in loop
  • Comfortable nylon-bound elastic armholes seal in warmth
  • Hem adjusts by pulling cord in handwarmer pockets and releases with cordlocks at front hem
  • Shell: 1.4-oz 20x30-denier 100% recycled polyester ripstop with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. Lining: 1.5-oz 22-denier 100% recycled polyester ripstop with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.

    I decided to replace my old fleece vest with the Down Sweater Vest this year and I am 100% sold. It's incredibly light weight and soft (unlike any other down vest I've tried on), the fit is awesome, and I love the color (I got the blue). It's the perfect extra layer to throw in your pack for hikes - very warm and light as a feather - and I plan to wear it under my shell on chilly ski days. I have a feeling I'll be living in this vest this winter. Good job, Patagonia!

    Color not so nice

    The vest is great but the Pearl color looks dirty. You can see a balckish color throught the white. Everyone who saw it had the same reaction

        Our family owns six down sweater vest or coats. The six of us enjoy them because we can hike, bike, trail run or just sit by a fire listening to musicians and not be too warm for the southern winters. They provide the perfect warmth for outdoor activities.

          I am 5'4" and 105 lbs. I was debating between XS and S. I ordered the S because I wanted the vest to be a bit longer than waist length. It is perfect! I've already worn it a ton! It will be first out of the "jacket closet" in the Fall!

              Love this down vest! Bought it because it was so light weight & that gorgeous green color. It's perfect for early spring & I can't wait to wear it again in the fall. My only complaint is I feel like it was a tad short for today's longer fashions. It fits right at the hips but I would prefer it if it were just an inch longer. This wouldn't stop me from buying it again though. I'm 5'4" and 120 lbs and the small fits nicely allowing for a layering.

                      I love the look of this particular vest. It is flattering as the down is not too "puffy." However, the most disappointing feature is it is just too short. I am keeping it, yet just have to make sure I always wear long enough layers underneath.

                          Great little vest, lightweight, great color...washable! I think it runs a little wide and short - at 5'5" in a small, I could use a few more inches to make it as long as I like. Altogether, a thin, warm layer.

                            I love this vest! Very stylish and comfortable. Not too bulky and not to small either. Wear it alone with a tshirt or over a lightweight jacket for extra coverage during the cool fall days.

                                Good question! So, for fall/winter 2014, the center back length for a size medium is 25 inches. LAST YEAR, however, it was 24 inches, so they've added an inch of length to each size for this season based on customer feedback. Patagonia doesn't publish their center back lengths, so I had to dig a bit to find that. The page you're looking at is actually the old version; for the new ones -- found here at http://www.rockcreek.com/patagonia/down-sweater-vest-womens/41696.rc -- the price has increased by $10 along with the slightly longer length. We carry these in our stores, so come try one on if you're in the area!

                              Should I order the S or M?
                              I'm 5'2" with a 34D chest, small waist and bigger butt. I like fitted vests, but I also like to zip it over a shirt. My pant size varies from an 8 to 6 depending on store/designer.

                                Ooh, that IS right on the borderline! I'm assuming you've clicked the size chart link. These have a flattering, slightly tailored cut; I think I'd recommend the medium, it shouldn't be boxy and I don't think the additional torso length will create an issue.
