The North Face Girls' Aconcagua Vest
If you read online consumer reviews you probably already know that many clothing manufacturers don't always design kid's outerwear with the same features and performance benefits found in the adult-sized clothing. That's certainly not the case with this Girl's Aconcagua Vest from The North Face. It offers the same quality down fill insulation in a diamond-shaped, sewn-through construction found on the Aconcagua Vest made for women. The Girl's Aconcagua Vest is also Zip-in compatible with other identically-sized Zip-in garments made by The North Face. That means that you can layer the Aconcagua Vest beneath a ski jacket for winter insulation or zip it into a waterproof shell during rainy spring days. This vest features a soft nylon shell treated with a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish that doesn't absorb precipitation as quickly as some down vests. The Aconcagua Vest functions best as a layering piece in winter skiing conditions, but can be worn over a sweater on warmer spring days.
- Fabric: 100% nylon shell treated with a DWR finish
- Lining: soft, 100% polyester taffeta
- Insulation: 550-fill goose down
- Sewn through construction to eliminate down shift and cold spots
- Zip-in compatible with identically sized Zip-in garments from The North Face
- Brushed collar lining
- Zippered handwarmer pockets
- ID label

Love, love, love the vest. I am 33 and on the smaller side so I purchased a large and it fits perfectly! I find some of the women's sizes are a little boxy, but not this vest. I also loved Altrec's fast and awesome service.

i ordered the pink vest and it is a really great color. The vest seems to run a little big for a kids XL. I am 5'8'' and 128 pounds and it is a little big but with a sweatshirt under will be fine.

I actually ordered this as a gift for my sister. She usually wears a women's medium, so I ordered the XL girls. I had to exchange it for a large girls and it fits wonderfully! The vest is medium warmth and isn't overly puffy! Great vest!

My daughter loves it so that she almost wear it all year round. This vest is stylish to all young girls and even my sister, who is 30. I usually have her wear this under her jacket so when she get in school she can just wear the vest.

Just what I was looking for
This vest is very warm and fits perfect. I am a petite woman (5-0, 100 lbs) so I opted to purchase the girls large vest in black. I wear it on weekends & on dress down Friday @ work. It is a good quality material and very warm. I am very pleased with my purchase and I am about to order another one for my teenage daughter so that she will leave mine along.
