I am 6ft and 160lbs, bought a Large in black. Fit was perfect, the length was great for me it hit just below my hip bones. The lining is super soft and warm. Looks great, nice and slimming. This vest WILL keep you warm. Made well, nice and durable. My favorite feature is the huge inside pocket.
I have a vest fetish but I'm still picky about the ones I get and this is a keeper. Wonderful light fabric filled with just the right amount of down to keep one warm without looking like the Pillsbury dough boy. Nice substantial zippers and, a new criteria for me, the interior pocket has more than ample room for my new Plus 6. I got the gardenia white ditsy print which knocked me over when I opened the package, it's that gorgeous, totally functional piece and sooo good looking to boot. Fit true to size, too, btw.
"got me through the coldest winter to date"
this vest kept my core warm in -45 degree tempsthe fit is super feminine (for once!) It also allows for layering underneath. I wore this nearly everyday out in snowy conditions and it also makes a great fall/spring option with a simple sweatshirt underneath. recommend this fit to all females who want warmth!
I've yet to find a North Face product that I didn't like. This ranks 5 stars along with every single other of their products. I went with this vest because I wanted something warm and didn't want a vest with just a little down, I wanted warm & lots of down without being too bulky. This is it. A little poofy, but not too much to where it's unflattering. The length is great and runs true to size. I got a small as I typically do, 5'2" & 118 lbs. I have never purchased anything with down as the insulator before and I'm very pleased, it's very warm and super light.
This vest is perfect because it keeps my body incredibly warm, but it doesn't add the bulk of a coat. I feel like I have better mobility of my arms while wearing this vest. It's also flattering on the waistline because it cuts in slightly. It's super cozy, I wear it every time I can. I absolutely love this product!
I purchased this vest for my girlfriend for Christmas. She ended up in Park City skiing for the holiday and got some good use out of it. Most days she was able to wear just the vest and a base layer and was more than warm enough for the slopes. Needless to say, I got major brownie points ;)
I got this vest for my wife and she loves it every much. She was hoping to get one in white but the black is acceptable. It really looks good when she put it on. More importantly, it's light weight and keep her warm during the cool to cold weather.
I love NF and the quality of this vest BUT it fits funny. I'm 5'11", about 140lbs and the Medium was way too wide & way too short.I will be returning it and on the search for a longer, more slimming one!
"Would definitely recommend for anyone that likes warmth without the bulky sleeves"
I bought this for my wife after owning the mens equivalent vest. Love them both! Toasty warm without the bulky sleeves. Great fit and true to size. some brands run short in the torso length but this is perfect. Bought the older brown color and love it.
"I love this vest and it is a key item in my wardrobe."
I absolutely love this vest! I have the white one, which does get dirty faster than normal, but I don't even care because it is so awesome. It is perfect for a cold winter day and I am always warm wearing it. Definitely worth the money!
