This is a very nice vest, it does a great job of providing that extra layer of warmth and is easy to take with you. I find it comes in very handy when I am riding my bike while it is somewhat cold out, it keeps my core warm while my arms can breath from the exertion of riding my bike. I also really like the two-tone color and specifically that it is two shades of grey (it goes with pretty much anything). It comes with a stuff bag (like a miniature sleeping bag) which comes in handy and was great for my carry on when traveling to Chicago recently. I have seen several feathers popping out of the seams, but a friend of mine told me that is normal with down clothing. The one downside (no pun intended) to this jacket is the fit. It's a little bit less snug than I would like. I usually take a Medium and sometimes a Large, but I got this in a M and even over a sweater, it was little bit loose. The other thing is it's a little puffier than I like even for a puffer vest. But those things are personal preferences and are outweighed by the positives. Conclusion: Great stylish and functional vest that would get 5 stars in my book if a little bit more snug fitting.
