Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gear I bought this vest a few months ago and have found a lot of use for it. It's working for me through a wide variety of temperature ranges. Being a vest, it's compact, light, and easy to travel with. Depending on situation and temperature, I've had success using it 1) as a top layer over a shirt or sweater; 2) under a shell; 3) as a mid-layer under a heavier down jacket in more extreme temps. The wool back-layer breathes nicely, right where you need that. A well done product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Vest Super vest and I am pleased thus far. It wicks light moisture and breathes very well. The Medium is a great fit for me at 6'0, 180. So far it has only been tested on sideline sports and trips to work. I plan to use it all winter as a layering piece as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good layering piece, fits a bit tight I purchased this in November and wear it often as a layering piece for touring and cross country skiing. I am 5'9", 175 lbs with athletic build and usually fit perfectly into mediums. This one is a bit tight so a large would have been better. It just means I wear it closer to my body in the layering. Great breathability, flexibility, and allows full range of motion for all types of skiing (and wipe outs).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect layer This is a fantastic layer if you tend to run hot. The insulation in the front is very warm on colder days and the back panel keep things breathable during high output activities. I love the merino blend for the back panel, really stretchy and the merino keeps the stink down, I've had no issues running in this many days in a row without any odor issues. The fit is fantastic, enough room to fit a heavy fleece under if needed but slim enough to keep the draft out and enable it to fit well under a shell. Fits great under a harness though I wish the hand pockets were placed just a little higher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vest fits well. This is a fitted vest that's advertised as a slim fit. I normally wear a size large and purchased a size XL and it's a perfect. fit. I'm 6'5" and 200 pounds. It's a soft material and washes and dries well. The collar gives you plenty of protection with the height but personally wish it was a bit shorter. A great piece to add to my collection of outerwear.
