beware of design

By hikingal

from California

Comments about First Ascent|Women|Jackets & Vests Women's MicroTherm® StormDown® Vest:

I was so disappointed in that the stretch side panels are very unusually wide - about 6-8" each side - I love small stretch side panels for movement but these are so large that they will significantly decrease the warmth of the vest (which is why you pay extra for 800 down) and also look a bit odd. The vest itself is also very thin and although 800 down, I don't think it will be very warm. The teal color I ordered was beautiful and also got matching zip shirt. Returning both.

Kind of baggy compared to the jackets. The side panels, although stretchable, make you look having no waste. Bad design.

Fits differently than past year's versions

By n/a

from Oregon

Comments about First Ascent|Women|Jackets & Vests Women's MicroTherm® StormDown® Vest:

I have been buying these vests for years, and the petite L has always fit me perfectly. Just received my new vest and am disappointed with the fit. The armholes are smaller and the elastic around them is tighter than previous versions. Also, I am a busty gal, but the new vest is much tighter across the chest than my older ones. I will exchange for the petite XL, but I'm not hopeful about the new styling...

Comfortable

By Mouse

from Washington

Comments about First Ascent|Women|Jackets & Vests Women's MicroTherm® StormDown® Vest:

I'm a petite and generally order size small. I found that this vest fits as long as I don't zip it. If you are a bit chesty or plan to wear heavy clothing under the vest, I suggest you order one size larger.
