Not great, the old reversible bivy down vest was better
Decent vest, but not great. Got it as a replacement to the older bivy down reversible vest. The older version was much more functional as a zip up vest vs. newer button down vest. In addition, the new version does not have zipper or button side pockets, so there is nothing to secure your pocket belongings. There is a zipper pocket on the chest, but... Read More it is only on the sherpa side and not big enough to house a normal sized smartphone. Overall, Im disappointed in the new version.
Thank you for writing this review, Christopher! We would like to extend our sincere apologies for the disappointment you have toward this new version of our Reversible Bivy Down Vest. Please know you are more than welcome to start your [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) at any time as we want you to be completely satisfied with your Patagonia products.
I like the fleece interior and that you have added the pocket back inside, which works well for placement of a phone.....Going back to this exterior shell material is nice also, it does not pick up pet hair like the last two bivy vests, which my wife and I both still wear. I prefer the zipper design to this button up, but it may not be practical be... Read Morecause of the fleece lining....
Why isn't everything reversible?
I was recently at Windham Ski Resort getting my ski boots fitted, and while I was waiting I saw the bivy down vest on a rack in the shop.It caught my eye and I loved the retro style so had to take a closer look. The vest had a great feel to it and then I discovered it was reversible and could be worn fleece side out. Why aren't more things rev... Read Moreersible, it's like you're getting 2 for 1? I tried it on both ways, and said "I've gotta get one of these". Unfortunately all they had was an XL in stock. I took a photo of it in the store and when I got home I went online and ordered one. I'm 6'-2", 190 pounds and always seem to be a medium in Patagonia stuff. The vest fits perfectly over a short or long sleeve lightweight shirt, but if I were to wear this over a sweatshirt or sweater it would be a bit snug. This is not a lightweight down vest made for layering, it has some weight to it, seems very durable, and looks sweet! I wanted the classic tan but they didn't have my size so I got the green and I love it.
Comfort and Size
Great vest, comfortable and warm. But I ordered the wrong size, a Large when I needed an Extra Large. Both customer service people were extraordinary helpful in helping me get the right fit with a return and reorder. In your reviews for this vest, a William, measuring 6'1" to 6'3", purchased a Medium. I kind of estimated my size... Read More based on him. He must be very, very slender and, I don't think representational of most of us, certainly not me. Great vest - I highly recommend it for construction quality, warmth, and style. I like it.
Quality Material and Construction
I have been searching for a good-looking and quality vest for some time now. I bought cheaper alternative puff/quilted vest that looked good but did a horrible job of keeping my core warm. I finally built of the courage to spend a little more and buy this vest. No regrets whatsoever! Out of the packaging, one can tell it is made of quality material... Read More with functionality in mind. I have been wearing it religiously for almost two months. I have snagged it on some rough edges, spilled a few things, and it still looks brand new. I am 5'11 and ~165lbs. Fairly slender build with an ever slight beer belly. Size Small fits me well. I do like my clothes fitted. This vest with just a regular shirt is slightly loose. Add a sweater and I think it's the perfect fit.
Would have been fine if it were too fit my husband, but I will keep it for myself and order him another size and a different color.
A size chart that helps you find your perfect fit . I love the colors, the vest I chose for my husband is very complimentary in colors, but unfortunately it doesn't fit him, but I'll keep it for myself.
Nice and warm
I am very pleased with this vest. Its keeping me warm. I wear it indoors to keep me comfortable without having to turn up the heater as well as outdoors as a hiking jacket. The fit is nicely shaped--not boxy. I am 5'2", 160 lb, this vest size small fits me well over a medium weight sweater. Good for invest
it's pretty good
I've been trying to wear this as a tool belt of sorts, it's pretty great but I must complain about the pockets getting caught on something when walking by. also it's huge in size, I ordered based on the sizing guide and got an XL, and then exchanged it for an L which still fits very large. I think the sizing guide it for belly based ... Read Morelads. 4/5.
Great quality/comfortable vest
I own several Patagonia vests, and this one is the toastiest of them all. Nice quality as usual and I love the color. I didnt have anything in a barn red/orange color, and it will go with many outfits. Its great that its reversible, also. This vest is definitely worth the price. Highly recommend!
