Lightweight and Toasty
I'm loving this vest for springtime weather in MT. It's a great layering piece that fits comfortably over and under layers. It is trim and flattering and the hidden pocket on the chest is essential for cards and a truck key when I go for runs. This is my new favorite layer!
I love everything about this quarter zip vest. It is light weight but still warm, has nice pockets and the float blue color is awesome. I also really like that it has a hood. Bought it in size small and it just fit with layers. Also tried a medium but it was way too big so kept the small. I wish it came in a version with sleeves (and a hood).
Not the quality I hoped for
Though I found the fit and style of this garment to be appealing, I can't say the quality measured up. The fabric is incredibly thin for an outdoor vest, and the down fill appears equally skimpy. As a proponent of "buying less but buying best", I'm looking for outdoor products that will go the distance with me. I fear this down ... Read Morevest will not not stand the test of time and wear.

Fills a Niche
I've purchased many Patagonia products over the years (some online, but mostly at our local, independent retailer). This is the first time I've written a review, and it's because I would hate to see the UltraAlpine Down Hooded Vest discontinued (should Patagonia ever think about it). I have older, full-zip down and non-down Patagonia... Read More vests that are still in great condition. When I have to choose what to put in my daypack or backpack, however, it's the UltraAlpine Down Hooded Vest. It's a little lighter and more compressible, and I love having the hood option (even if I'm also bringing a hooded jacket). I'm 5'4" and 125-ish pounds on a senior-citizen frame. I bought the small because that's what was available at the time. I like the way the small fits. My other Patagonia vests and jackets are mostly XS, and I'm guessing the XS in the UltraAlpine Down Hooded Vest would be fine for my size, too -- especially for those who prefer a tighter fit.
Just not right
Beautiful and high quality Too long for a traditional look and not long enough for a tunic look VERY LOUD - each movement had some sort of sound Wanted to love
Thank you for this feedback, Jennifer. We're sorry that fabric turned out to be too noisy! You might prefer some of our Silent Down products, which are designed to be less "swishy". We're glad to see you were able to get that vest returned. Please let us know if we can help you find something you'll like better!
Love the color, but expected a vest with a bit more substance. Also, the sizing runs small - especially around the hips. Needs more stretch/flexibility in the hips.
We're sorry this vest doesn't seem to be working for you! Please know you are always welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) anything that doesn’t work out for you. Thank you for sharing this review, Auralee.
I've worn this every day since I purchased it. It is light weight but provides the perfect amount of warmth. Every now and then Patagonia designs something that is a home run and this is it for me. It's warm on its own plus a perfect layering piece for under a sweater or jacket when it's colder. I got caught in a rainstorm the other ... Read Moreday and used the hood and my head stayed warm and dry. I haven't had any problems with feathers coming out like the other reviewer mentioned. Size wise I am between a medium and a large. I have broad shoulders so I am glad I sized up to the large. It's a perfect fit through the chest and shoulders. My only suggestion is I wish it had a cinch to tightened it around the waist but no biggie. I really love this vest.
