Patagonia Men's Down Sweater Vest
Heavy down insulated parkas emerged in our winter weather arsenal when Eddie Bauer outfitted the first American Summit of Everest in '63, but the value of down as a midlayer is just now reaching our consciousness. A long overdue concept, the ultralight and highly efficient Men's Patagonia Down Sweater Vest features compressible and packable 800-fill goose down insulation that warms the core to its zenith. Created for minimalists and climbers who look to lighten their load with the ultimate in efficient layering, the Down Sweater Vest is designed in superlight, windproof and highly water resistant polyester that provides premium tear-strength. For optimal functionality the vest shell is fashioned in a quilted construction to stabilize the down and prevent cold spots. Two zippered handwarmer pockets store small items and an interior zip pocket of mesh sports a carabiner clip-in loop and doubles as a stuff sack. Elastic binding at the vest armholes and a drawcord hem help seal out drafts when hunkering down for a long night's bivy. Conceived for the mountain, but equally at home in urban confines, the Patagonia Men's Down Sweater Vest brings mind boggling cozy comfort to the forefront.

Men's Down Sweater Vest
This is GREAT for Cross-country, snowshoeing, ice skating! Very little bulk but excellent warmth and performance! Patagonia never disappoints! I think anyone who wears their gear will be totally satisfied!

Gift for hubby
He loves it but it's too big so we need to exchange it. Patagonia doesn't disappoint with this product. Thin enough to be comfy but still keeps youbwarm. Not great for windy days. You will love it.

Down Sweater Vest
This was my first piece of Patagonia gear and I love it. The fit is perfect to layer underneath a shell for snowboarding in Tahoe. It has a nice slim fit and hugs nicely when zipped up. Also, it compresses small enough to fit into a cargo pocket for the afternoons when it heats up. I am 5'11" and 170 lbs and the medium fits perfect for my purposes. I'm a new fan of Patagonia and will look for more of their gear.

Recently I purchased a Patagonia's Mens Down Sweater Vest and I will say how nice and warm they are but more than that they are very stylish. I'm from Colorado and people wear them all the time here. I have a family of 4 and we all have one now. We have gotten so many compliments. It's truly a must have!
