Men's MicroTherm® 2.0 StormDown® Vest




Live Your Adventure®


Perfection Evolved. The vest version of our premium ultralight features the same new high-mobility fit and feature set as the jacket and hoodie, minus the sleeves and the drawcord hem. Version 2.0 is more comfortable and mobile, with slightly longer length for added coverage and warmth, and softer fabric to further enhance the comfort.

As an ultralight insulating layer, the MicroTherm is thinner than traditional down vests. But that combination of minimal bulk and effective warmth is what makes it special, and is the result of its patented construction and the exceptionally high-loft StormDown that it holds close to the body for maximum thermal efficiency.

Exactly what I wanted


Between the vest and matching jacket I'm into if for only 1 1/4# combined. I fly extensively and needed warmth and light weight to keep in my luggage for winter months. Warmer than it appears especially when combining both vest and jacket.




Ver 1.0 fit was far superior


I have many many First Ascent items and gear and several examples of MicroTherm ... The hooded, not hooded (have had 2), vest (have had 2). My version 1.0 vest was starting to eject feathers so I retired it to yardwork duty and got another one. I'm pretty disappointed with the changes they've made. I noticed, as on my MicroTherm jacket, that it now fits much looser and is more generously cut in the midsection. I loved the previous generation as they were more fitted and I felt kept me warmer because of the close fit . This one pouches and bunches around the midsection and pockets. Overall great quality and these are the best lightweight down garments on thr market, but I wish EB didn't change the fit.




Warm and light weight


I bought this for my brother who is in a wheelchair and he absolutely loves the added warmth it provides on his back. the flex sides are great as they do not bind up. He also likes the length in the back, it covers his backside well




Son-in-Law Loved it


My SIL loved the vest and wore it all Christmas Day and much of the week he was here. Good quality, great look on him and the size was accurate.
