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

    Ordered this on sale and have finally found the vest I've been searching for! I wanted a super lightweight, layerable vest that would truly keep me warm, with the extra cherry on top of having a flattering, fitted fit - I don't know why it's so hard to find women's clothes for outdoor pursuits that are actually cute. I got this in the oddly named "Dark Teal" print and am so far very happy with it. It is indeed so, so light, with quite large, non-quilted down panels on the sides. I am the kind of person who actually needs this for snowboarding, snowshoeing, hiking, and a layer I can pack up quickly for travels and cool fall backpacking... so those large panels to me mean ventilation and flexibility. I guess if you're just wanting to wear this to the mall or around your house, you might feel a bit cheated by the side panels or suspicious of how lightweight it feels. What can I say, I'm wearing it over base layers and under a puffy on the mountain, and I'm toasty and happy. Also kudos to Eddie Bauer for offering this in petite; something else extremely rare and difficult for women like me to find - for once I am not wearing a vest that is 4 inches too long. This lands just above my hip and zips right up to my chin. I'm a trim fit with healthy chest and the XS fits nice and snug.

    Doesn't fit as well as past versions

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

        I have one of these vests from about 6 or 7 years ago. My old vest fits perfectly. I ordered the same size (small - petite). The new vest fits pretty much the same in the top half but the bottom of the vest flares out around the hips. It just doesn't look as good as the old vest because of this. I'm thinking if taking it to a tailor to have it altered. Otherwise, it's very nice. And the peacock colour (which looks more like a dark teal green) is beautiful.

        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, not really athletically fit

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

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