Meh. I had high hopes for this vest....

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

This vest looks great on, is form fitting (with stretchy side panels that are not insulated) and I got it significantly reduced on sale. For those reasons, I'm ok with it.

However, here are the cons to consider: 1) I don't know what the heck 800 fill power is supposed to mean, but in practice, it is not very warm although being very light. 2) It is not rain proof. 3) The feathers/down work through the fabric; now this is normal for down, but because this vest is SO thin, when you pull one out (as I did, unable to push it back in), you end up with a big pin hole, and zero down in that section -- I mean literally the fluffy down came out (it was lovely, soft and fluffy!) but it was the ONLY piece of down in that section of the tubing, so I literally have a section of the chevron that is completely flat with no down. Now, over time, that will shift and resettle, but....if a single piece of down can cause a hole in the padding -- that's pretty darn light filling! 4) It would be better to have the back dip down to cover your butt. It ends too high (and I'm short waisted!). 5) As other reviewers noted -- the zipper is REALLY cheap and small for such a garment. It feels just wrong, wrong, wrong on this vest and gives one the sense of cheapness and low quality. Also the zippers on the pockets are cheap.

Overall..... meh. I really had higher hopes for this down vest.

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

Extremely lightweight and good for hiking or travel in cool weather. It's a hybrid, with wide knit panels on the sides. Would be happier if the panels were narrower with more down quilting. Otherwise, it's a good deal on sale. Love the peacock blue.

      Love this vest! Great for travel and for days when you know the temperature will vary. Folds up small enough to even fit in a purse!

      Lightweight, like to wear it with a turtleneck: looks nice for casual wear. Also layers well under my ski jacket bot is not bulky. This a favorite, I bought another on clearance.
