Product Details    

Style: A2TCD

The North Face's Aconcagua Vest puffs up without turning you into the Michelin Man. The 550-fill down core keeps body heat in like no other insulation out there, ensuring you stay warm. Heatseeker™ at the sides and shoulders keeps things a little sleeker and more versatile, keeping you comfortable and mobile. Zip hand pockets and a zip chest pocket give you some space for storage. Pack this underneath your ski shell for reliable insulation in the heart of winter or wear it as an outer layer on mud season adventures.

I'd been wanting a down vest for awhile and originally looked at the Nuptse, but it was a bit to "puffy" and made me look like the Michelin man. The Aconcagua is a bit lighter weight, but fits perfect and looks good. It's also warm. The only draw back is that I can't zip it in to my North Face shell.

I bought this vest in all black a year or 2 ago and after a couple of weeks of wearing it, the feathers starting poking out. And now that it's been about 2 years, feathers are coming out everywhere! I liked the style of it. It did run slightly big. But I expected more from The North Face quality. For the quality and price..it's not worth it. Hopefully with it being 2 years they improved it from the feathers sticking out everywhere.

        Really liked the color, material, and overlook look. I'm normally a medium, but this was just a bit too big. Will look forward to trying the small.

                  This is a great down vest. Not bulky and not to puffy. And it really keeps you warm. This color(brown) was great. Different than the normal colors.

                                    So I first got this vest in Black for christmas. I wanted a different color so I went to the store to exchange it but they didn't have the style there. However the salesmen that helped me were great, did the exchange for online in about 10 minutes and I was on my way!

                                    Once I got it, I realized that a large was really too big and I wanted a medium. No problem, went through the online process for a return and will be purchasing a medium once I get my return processed!

                                    Once again fantastic experience with a great company!
