Product Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm, light, fun colors (blue with stripes) From previously trying the fuego hoodie years past and reviewing the current size chart, I knew I was going to need to try one size up from my regular size. The small in this vest was the right length, there were no issues with my hips, and the bust fit correctly, so I think the size chart seems fairly accurate. I can wear it over most of my sweatshirts and fleeces, and yet it is snug enough that it is ok over just a shirt as well. I usually wear a size xs/2 in most brands, am 5’2” tall, and weigh 118 lbs with a 32D bust. This vest appears to be made well, is lightweight and yet warm, and the colors are quite cheery/fun. I’ve already worn it quite often as it is perfect for the PNW.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Living my vest life Lightweight, packable, and stylish! I absolutely love it. It's so lightweight and warm, I find myself wearing it constantly. It's the perfect layer for Pacific NW weather. I also love the colors and stripes! Adds a great little pop of color and fun. One thing to note, some previous reviews state to size up, but I ended up exchanging for my true size after following this advice. I don't know if this season they adjusted the fit a little, but I'm 5'10" with a fairly athletic/lanky build (size 6/8 in pants) and the M fits great with enough room for a t-shirt or a sweater/light jacket underneath.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool vest This vest is cool looking and I like it a lot. The one thing that could improve it is if it were shaped a little more womanly. It is wide in the upper torso and waist and seems like it gets narrow at the bottom… and I am the most straight-bodied woman I know. I could see the shape being a real problem for someone with an hourglass figure or someone more pear shaped. It would be much more flattering if it were less square. For reference, I’m 5’-5”, 120 lbs and I got an xs. I have the hooded jacked too, which has the same problem (but it didn’t stop me from buying the vest).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best mid-layer vest for Montana lifestyle. I bought this instead of the Patagonia style, I’m so happy with my decision. The orange color is great during hunting season (all non hunters need to sport hunter orange during hunting season to avoid an accident). And it packs down to be worn under a denim jacket or a parka. It’s cute to wear and it functions beautifully. I can fit it under my coveralls for ranch chores or wear it snow showing or skiing. Great commuter layer. Simply the best versatile all-season vest. Great value and superb use of leftover materials. I feel good about my purchase. love Cotopaxi

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for hiking [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is the perfect active AND casual vest-- I get a ton of compliments every time I wear it. I love backpacking and had been looking for the perfect light-weight stuffable vest--this is it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Vest Ever This is my favorite vest I've ever had and I'm so glad I bought it last fall. It is warm, lightweight, comfortable and not at all bulky. It packs so easily and layers well. I bought a black one and it goes with everything. I was hesitant to make the splurge, but it has already gotten so much wear, it was worth every penny. I find Cotopaxi as a brand to run on the smaller size, but just check out the sizing chart and you should be able to go by that. The sizing charts have yet to steer me wrong and I have multiple apparel items. It fits great!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Big and not puffy. I am 5’5” around 115 lbs and ordered the small. I am swimming in this! I took the advice and ordered the small thinking it would be good to wear over sweaters. This is more like a medium in my opinion. On top of that, the color did not come across as vibrant as on the photos and also there is little “puff” to this vest. The pictures are deceiving and makes it look like it has more insulation than it does. So disappointed because I like to support companies that do good and are sustainable. I will be returning this. Did I get a lemon?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from lofty and warm; boxy and loose [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought a medium, which is my normal size and matches my measurements to the size chart (5'9", 140), but the vest was too big. It was pretty boxy and loose. I would have exchanged for a small and think that would fit well, but it was actually too lofty and warm for what I wanted. Probably great for light activity, but I wanted a vest for winter running and xc skiing and this would be too warm. I love the colors though, and it'd be a great vest in the right size.
