The North Face Women's Carmel Vest
If your biggest concern about staying warm outdoors is about insulating your core, the high-loft 700-fill goose down in this Women's Carmel Vest from The North Face will dispel your worries. It's an amazingly warm vest with a flattering, tapered fit around your torso. The Carmel Vest for women layers well over midweight fleece, but if you can also use the Zip-in compatibility to pair this vest with a Zip-in waterproof shell or lightweight jacket from The North Face. From neck to hem, a snap-down wind flap protects the full-length zipper from breezes, providing excellent wind resistance. This popular outdoor vest is a favorite choice for women who hike, camp and even kayak in moderately cool weather conditions. The lightweight down-proof nylon fabric is slightly water resistant, but you'll find that your rainy day comfort is optimized when you wear your Carmel Vest beneath a women's waterproof shell or jacket.

A vest for the petite gal
Down vests can be very wide in the sweep, more boxy than torso-sized, but this canary blue vest in extra small fit me (110, 5'2'') perfectly. The vest has all the good features of a North Face jacket---zipped pockets, reinforced collar, inside pocket, pull cord waist for extra warmth--but it also doesn't necessarily advertise itself as North Face, which is really nice if you don't want everyone to see your brand before they see you.

Excellent Product Excellent Service!
Lightweight stylish and keeps me warm. Can you ask for more? I wanted white in xs and searched all over the internet and Altrec was the only one who had stock! I thought it was a mistake but it was delivered within a couple of days even though I ordered during the holiday period. It was my first time puchasing from Altrec and it was pleasure and trouble-free. Highly recommended.

I saw this vest in another store but didn't purchase it due the color, (bright pink only.) So I got online and searched for it. I LOVE this vest. The fit is true to size, of course well made and toasty warm. I'll also have to say the service of Altrec is wonderful. This was my first time in ordering from them so I'm always skeptical the first time around. I would definitely order through this site again. Timely delivery and well packaged. Especially loved the FREE shipping and handling. You can't beat that. THANK YOU Altrec.
