Great Vest
Review by delarock

Waited for an XL in Orion Blue to pop up (month and a half!), glad I did. 5'10" 260 lbs, slightly big but perfect for what I wanted.

The Perfect Down Vest
Review by Larry Hutchinson

From the backcountry to the back yard to your local watering hole there is simply nothing more essential or versatile than a good vest and down is impossible to beat. I also spend way too much time on airplanes and a down vest is tough to beat as defense against out of control cabin temperature. The only thing better than a good down vest is one with a hood, I'm a big fan of "hoodies" generally. When the weather turns snotty on you being able to pull that hood over your head.

This vest is exactly what I had been searching for. Hooded down vests are hard to find. This one is warm without being bulky and will stuff down into the included stuff sack for easy stowage when traveling. The sizing has been a topic in the reviews. I'm 190cm, 95kg (6'3", 210#) 46" chest, 36" waist and I bought the Large. It is roomy enough to layer a base layer and T-Neck or Henley underneath or a ski sweater. At the same time it's not so "roomy" that you cant just toss it over a tee shirt. I typically will wear an XL but the Large is perfect for how I want to use the vest.

Quality wise it seems very well made, we'll see how it holds up, only time will tell on that. It is a bit pricey but this is well designed, quality kit, I nearly gave it 5 stars for value but gave it 4 because I think they could knock $20 off the price.

Good fit, color doesn't match
Review by Matt

Love the vest, it fits great, not too bulky. It was hard to find a nice vest with a hood for a man. However the Lapis Blue color is MUCH brighter than it is in the color swatch on the website. I'm slightly disappointed about that, but I'll live!

Instant Favorite!!!!
Review by Billy Big Sky Country

Very lightweight and warm, the hood adds an extra layer of warmth from the biting cold wind...I do like the overall stylish approach of the vest and might have to get another color.

Love This Best
Review by Duncan

Great quality, super comfortable, really happy with this purchase. Stio has a new fan.

Too big or too small
Review by Steve

For me, 6'4", 245, the XL (which I normally wear well) is too big and the L is a bit too small. I seem to be right in the middle!

Review by David Murdoch

This vest is amazing! The hood is such an awesome added extra and is super comfy when zipped to the top. Thinking of buying this? Do it. Pronto.

Awesome vest
Review by Skibum

This is hands down the best vest I've owned. You will not be sorry ordering this one. Great for layering or by itself, and the hood helps keep you head warm.

Versatile and stylish.
Review by Doug

I like a vest under my ski shell on those cold days up on the mountain in January. This one layers nicely, packs well, and the hood helps take the chill off. It's also stylish enough to wear around town in the fall and spring.
Honestly, I hardly take this thing off from September through April!

Awesome vest!
Review by Tim Young

I've been looking for a hooded down vest for a awhile. Came across this and thought I'd try it. Top notch quality and great fit. You will not be disappointed with this one. I will be buying another in a different color.

Review by Mark

Exchanged the medium for a small to get the right fit. This vest has been my favorite outerwear this winter. I love wearing a hood on my bald head, so I'm thrilled to find a hooded vest in men's wear. Zipper has never given me an issue and that's a major plus. I even wear it inside on bitter cold days - with the hood up.

Great Vest
Review by ChiTo

I love this vest. I did buy a large which is a little big for a under layer, but I think it's great with a sweatshirt or sweater underneath. Will be great for spring skiing.

solid product
Review by Colin

While the medium is a tad larger than most other brands, I have made it work by wearing hoodies or sweaters under it. The vest is very warm and looks good. I'm very happy with this purchase and have recommended it to many that have asked about the vest/brand. Thanks stio!

Roomy & Long
Review by Bigruckus

A very nice looking vest, fits a little loose....I bought an XL...I wear either a L or XL..( I'm a 46) ...this fits great when wearing another layer under it......such as a fleece or a sweater. The vest is long in length so it covers well when I'm biking or riding an ATV. The hood and neckline areas are oversized so a helmet works great or a knitted hat. I purchased the blue color, which is very nice..but the yellow zippers insert seams are a little loud. Construction is top notched as with all Stio items...I'm happy with my vest and have added it to my Stio collection..

Real nice
Review by Theguyinthechair

This here vest is real nice. I've been a vest sporting kind of man since 1994 when I acquired my first vest. The key to success in life is having a warm core and that's just what this vest brings to the table. I like the hood on this here vest. It can be used for added head warming, hiding booze, or carrying a small child. I look incredible in this garment. I often find myself using a high powered tazer whilst wearing this vest due to the overwhelming amount of aggressive female admirers. I'm not sure if this is due to the core warmth, style, or my handsomeness and 220 pounds of twisted steel and sex appeal.

Warm, Durable, & Lightweight
Review by Caleb

Bought this vest for Midwest Winter activities (snow shoeing, cross-country skiing, hiking, etc.), and it performs very well. It's made of quality material, very lightweight, and is roomy enough to comfortably layer a heavy flannel/sweatshirt underneath. It also runs a tad longer than other vests, adding more protection from the cold. The hood is an obvious bonus! Overall, I would recommend to a friend for sure.

great stuff
Review by colombo

all my children and grand children loved the hooded vest i would have bought one for my granddaughter but did not like the top choice of fabric would have preferred it plain or an uplifting color but thank you for being so efficient in your order and getting it here pronto will be buying again and my grandson stuck your logo sticker on his computer,,now thats saying something......happy new year and thank you Mary Webb from Newbury NH

great quality for a competitive price
Review by 4everwild

perfect amount of fill, good length, lots of pocket options, compressibility, and great zippers. Zippers, really? Yes, you bet_ the best. I've had a lot of other high end outdoor clothing and often the weakest point was their zippers_ if they jam, rip, break and or tear the usefulness and integrity of the product is severely compromised. When you need to remove and put on layers as needed zippers can literally save your butt! Or not.

Review by JBrown

I was never into vests, never owned one. I saw this one, with a hood, and decided to give it a go and I love it. The fit is great, not too bulky, the fleece pockets are great on cold days. The pull tabs for the hood are a bonus on cold, windy days as well. This jacket keeps the core warm and perfectly compliments and light synthetic down or fleece underneath. This jacket rocks, I can't wait to try more stio stuff. Thanks guys

Good Stuff
Review by Bratzo

Originally ordered a large but it ended up being to baggy so I exchanged it at the new Chicago store which was awesome. First time I wore it to a soccer game and it was about 35 degrees and drizzling. It kept me warm and the hood came in handy which I like. Even with it being a medium there is still room for layers underneath. I def recommended.

great winter layer
Review by mtnboy - Staff

I wore this last winter as part of the Stio prototype testing team...came to love it as a super warm layer in my backcountry system...I was initially dubious about the hood but found myself using it all the time in the backcountry...

Great blend of style and functionality
Review by Gabriel

Fantastic vest, lightweight and very warm. Love the color scheme (Moroccan Blue) and the hood. The fit seems to assume another substantial layer beneath, which is perfect. In other words, I didn't have to size up to fit it over a fleece. Nice and long in the torso so I'm not baring my back when I tie my shoes. Undoubtedly, this will be a regular feature this winter.

Great addition and fit
Review by fishercat

Been looking for a down vest with a hood for several years. Difficult to find in men's wear and tough to find the right fit for active use. This one is great. Was worried that the XL would be too small as have needed the XXL in Stio before. But this fits great and is long enough. Hood is excellent.
