Kids Down Sweater Vest

Kinda Small
October 1, 2023

Too form fitting and long

What is with the sizing. Have had many patagonia vests over the years. I am a small women and i always wear xxl kid but this iteration doesnt cover the shoulders enough and its tight in the chest and too long. Why is everything too long these days ???? if your going for a retro look make the vest end at the top of your jeans and a boxier shape so t... Read Morehere's more room for pants!!! This is a return and can't buy the women's version because it is even worse. No thanks.

Missing coat loop so you can hang it up.

Biggest complaint is its missing a coat loop so you can hang it up.

Perfect fit

My daughter is a figure skater and needed a vest that would keep her warm but that was not to bulky. After trying three other vests this was the perfect one! She is 11yrs old but probably the size of a 9 year old and this vest still has room for her to grow into.

Comfortable, warm, and versatile.

The vest is great for many different temperatures, you can dress it down or up depending on the weather.

Lovely colors.

Nice slim fit on my lanky son (much slimming than the same size Eddie Bauer down vest he has). So recommend sizing up if your child is broad in the chest. Lovely colors and not bulky- will be worn a lot and seems excellent quality.

No loops for hanging!

I am so disappointed! I have bought these vests for all my kids over and over and we have loved them until the two I bought recently. They do not have loops to hang them on a coat rack! Its absolutely a nightmare trying to keep them from falling off the coat racks. Unless I hear that they have started to install the loops again I will be looking el...

Absolutely love these vests. My girls wear them under their insulated Snowbelle jackets for extra warmth while skiing on really cold days. Super light, super warm with no bulk. Quality is excellent- I expect them to make it through all three kids.

I'm a petite trim woman

I'm a petite trim woman and I often buy children's clothing size 10-12 from other companies. I purchased a children's medium expecting it to fit and ended up up sizing twice to an extra extra large. The vest itself is warm and lovely, and in our winter climate I wear it around the house. I would recommend it to others but watch out ... Read Morefor the sizing. This isn't made for someone with curves and hips.

Favorite Vest for Kids

I have been buying these vests for the past eight years (we especially love them in brighter colors which adds fun and visibility- unfortunately seeing less of these shades offered over the past few years). They are warm without being bulky, and they hold up. We pass ours along to happy recipients after all three of our boys have worn them. One thi... Read Moreng I noticed about the latest design is that they got rid of the hanging loop, so we can't securely hang up this vest like the others on our coat rack. It slips off instantly without the loop. Please bring it back!
