Patagonia has long enjoyed a favorable reputation for both its high-quality fitness and adventure gear and its environmentally friendly practices. Catering to the committed outdoor enthusiast, Patagonia’s offers classic designs that are made to hold up season after season.
The women’s Micro Puff Vest features high-loft insulation and a water-repellent 100% recycled polyester shell. Two side zippered pockets and a convenient interior zippered pocket provide plenty of room to stash essentials, and its fitted silhouette and quilted exterior offers style and warmth. Contrasting interior lining is highlighted at the neckline, which fits like a mock-turtleneck, and a drawcord hem allows for a customize fit at the hips.
Patagonia’s Micro Puff Vest is ultralight and highly packable, returning its shape even after begin stuffed in a bag. Sizing will depend on how you plan to wear the vest; over thinner layers, the vest appears to run large, particularly through the chest. Over a thicker sweater or multiple layers, however, the vest runs more true to size. With its high-tech features and fashionable design, this vest will appeal to those looking for insulation from the cold or those who simply want to look good while running errands.
