Lightweight and warm. Great to throw on over a shirt on cold days, or layer under another jacket or a windproof shell. Because it's a vest you don't overheat if hiking like you would with a jacket.

Good quality jacket
I am 5'10" 70 kg 99 cm chest. I bought the S in red dahlia. It was a good snug fit especially across my chest. The red is not really red. I would call it school bag maroon. The arm holes are elasticized which is slightly annoying but they should stretch in quick time. It is warm and packs light and small.

An ideal layering piece
Great to wear over jumpers and base layers on cooler days or as some added warmth under rain jackets. It's a great way too insulate without getting too hot tramping or just a walk around the neighbourhood.

Warm and light
The weight and warm of this jacket are amazing! Its perfect for layering with lighter jumpers and wearing on its own. Because it packs down so small its easy to always have it with you.
