High-loft, moisture-resistant, 800 fill StormDown insulation for ultralight, ultrawarm, ultra-compressible comfort. Updates include an extra 1.5" in length, a drawcord waist to streamline the fit, and a new chest pocket with media port.

    Comments about First Ascent|Men|Jackets & Vests Men's Downlight StormDown Vest:

    As I tried to say above " your clothing wears like iron " it does not seem to ever wear out. One comment: can some one contact me and explain why you make almost nothing in "relaxed fit" any more?? If I get a 1XL in relaxed fit it fits good and looks good. Otherwise I have to go to a 2XL and clothes of this size just fit "baggy". I don't look as good and thus your clothes don't look as good.

    Not all your customers are 20 something and weigh 150 LBS.

    Winning Combination

    Comments about First Ascent|Men|Jackets & Vests Men's Downlight StormDown Vest:

    I bought this to go with a BC down jacket I bought and I must say the two of the make a winning combination. I live in nyc and for the last week the high temperatures have been in the teens and low twenty's with windchill - 10. These two have kept me totally toasty and the best part of all is your not lugging around a big bulky coat that weighs 20lbs. I highly recommend this as an accompaniment for the BC down jacket.

        Comments about First Ascent|Men|Jackets & Vests Men's Downlight StormDown Vest:

        I am 6'4" Tall 240 lbs. XL Tall fits perfectly for shoulder width and body length. Sleeves are very short however. Sometimes all you need is a vest over a flannel shirt maybe, or can be used in addition to a parker as an extra layer. I really like having one. Black is the color, goes with everything.
        I was kidding about the sleeves, I know it's a vest.

        Comments about First Ascent|Men|Jackets & Vests Men's Downlight StormDown Vest:

        Warm, light, and fits well. Works great over my base layer and/or light fleece. Fits under my shells. I have a lighter and a heavier fill vest as well. This one is my favorite.
