Down has long been popular for its compressibility, warmth, and temperature regulation - that`s exactly what this vest delivers. With the classic baffle styling of their signature Down Sweater, this vest is insulated with 800 fill goose down for lightwight warmth. The shell fabric may look thin but don`t let that fool you, polyester ripstop nylon is made to be thin, flexible and durable as all get out. On top of that it is treated with a durable water repellant to fight off moisture. This vest features two zippered pockets (which house the drawcord hem) and one interior zippered chest pocket that doubles as a stuffsack. Patagonia listens to your suggestions, so this vest has been updated to be just a little bit longer for better coverage.
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
