Perfect multi-season go-to layer
Review by Liz S

I had been wanting a down vest for a few years, but hadn't found one in a color and weight that I wanted. The outer fabric is touch-ably smooth, and I get an instant core-warmth boost as soon as I put it on. The stuff sack was a bonus surprise, and I appreciate the attention to details with the stitched-in logo and brand name, and the little Stio pinecone logo on the main zipper pull. The only thing I would add would be a small inner chest zip pocket to keep the phone warm and in easy reach under my ski shell.

Skiing: It is a perfect mid-layer for skiing - it is a a slim enough fit that I can give my typical layering system a boost without feeling like a stuffed marshmallow. I have a long thin neck and the collar height and diameter are perfect for keeping my neck warm!
Driving: My commute is a relatively short 10 minutes, so most of my drive is in a car that is still heating up. When I got this vest, I noticed a immediate difference in my winter driving comfort/relaxation having this layer between my back and the cold seat of my car.
Airplane: On a recent trip to Whistler (from Maine) I wore this instead of a sweater on my flights. The included stuff sack doubled as pillowcase for my down jacket (the vest isn't nearly bulky enough to fill the sack), and was an easy way to carry that vs tying around my waist.
Cool mornings: As spring is just arriving, I find that I grab this (and have it on now!) to stay warm until the sun brings everything up to a comfortable temperature. I'm sure it will be perfect for cool mornings and evenings camping in the summer!

I am 130#, 5'7" 34B, and the medium is the perfect size for having a few layers comfortable underneath.

Perfect Mid Layer Vest!
Review by Megan-Staff

I LOVE my Pinon Vest! I wear skiing under a shell, under my down jacket for work day layering (warehouses aren't the warmest places to be in the Wyoming winter), over a long sleeve hoodie or shirt in the spring and fall for camping, hiking etc. I like the snug/flattering fit, it's not as boxy as some vests I have, but this does make it more of a mid-layer as it wont fit over some jackets.

All around great vest.
Review by SW - Staff

I usually wear a MD, but got this a large so I can wear a sweatshirt underneath. It is the perfect size and I love the length, as it falls under the hip. Also the Tomato color is a great softer red.

My Every Season Go TO
Review by PS - Employee

Okay, to be fair, I've only owned this vest for two months, BUT I predict with great probability that this will be my 'Every Season Go To'. For instance, it is currently 50 degrees in Jackson, and I am wearing my Pinion Down Vest with a long sleeve t-shirt. Two weeks ago, it was 25 degrees, my vest was the perfect layer underneath my Environ Jacket.

I'm a standard size Large, and the Large Pinion Vest was the perfect fit for me. A tailored, athletic fit, but not too fitted.

10 out of 10, would buy it again!!

Best Layering Piece
Review by LW - Staff

I am a huge fan of my Pinion Vest! Much like the Azura vest it is a very low-pro, sleek fit that fits great and is very flattering. The down fill is super warm, making it my new favorite mid layer for skiing. I typically wear this over a thin baselayer and under my Environ Shell and it's been wonderful. The sleek, feminine fit allows this vest to look great on and off the hill. I have the tomato color and it is my absolute FAVORITE!

Warm and Lightweight
Review by Stio Staff

A new favorite staple of mine. It's lightweight and low bulk while super warm. Fits true to size.
