The North Face Women's Thunder Vest
When you're backpacking above tree line, on a long weekend ski tour, or sitting in a comfy theater seat watching some adventure travel flicks getting stoked for your trip, you'll want lightweight, low-profile warmth. Made from shiny nylon ripstop fabric and stuffed with premium 800-fill down, the Women's Thunder Vest from The North Face is designed for active, athletic pursuits and lives up to its Summit Series pedigree. Weighing a forget-it's-even-on measly 8.5 ounces, this tiny down vest compresses to fit inside one of its own hand pockets and will hug you comfortably and snugly with an "Alpine fit as a mid layer under a winter jacket or as an outer layer on a summer camping or climbing trip. Bucking the gram-counters' strict stripped-down requirements, North Face gave this down vest 2 front pockets offering cold hands some special treatment. An ultra light layer with a true down sweater design, The North Face Thunder Vest for women will transition effortlessly into street wear thanks to the feminine cut and unique baffling. Love.

This vest is very light-weight and warm. Love the green color; the extra-small fits me perfectly (sz. 2 P; 5, 3"; 105 lbs.). Nice close fit. Also love the three zippered pockets.

love, love love it!
It fits according to size - my daughter is a medium and she has room to put a sweatshirt or fleece under it. It is super lightweight and perfect - thank you! A littel spendy but worth it!

stylish puffy vest
Warm, comfortable and stylish! The lower back and diagonal stitching make this vest practical and flattering - something that's hard to find in most puffy vests, which can make you look like the Michelin tire man! I would whole-heartedly recommend this vest. It does run slightly small...I had to order 1 size up from my normal size.

I love this vest! Super lightweight, extremely attractive and the absolute warmest. Fits true to size and I've received tons of compliments on it. This is a must have for the winter.

BEST PURCHASE I MADE THIS SEASON
This is the warmest, lightest vest I've ever found! It's nice to have your arms free but keep your body warm when the weather is iffy. I loved this vest so much, I bought another one in a different color.
