When you're backpacking above tree line, on a long weekend ski tour, or sitting in a comfy theater seat watching some adventure travel flicks getting stoked for your trip, you'll want lightweight, low-profile warmth. Made from shiny nylon ripstop fabric and stuffed with premium 800-fill down, the Women's Thunder Vest from The North Face is designed for active, athletic pursuits and lives up to its Summit Series pedigree. Weighing a forget-it's-even-on measly 8.5 ounces, this tiny down vest compresses to fit inside one of its own hand pockets and will hug you comfortably and snugly with an "Alpine fit as a mid layer under a winter jacket or as an outer layer on a summer camping or climbing trip. Bucking the gram-counters' strict stripped-down requirements, North Face gave this down vest 2 front pockets offering cold hands some special treatment. An ultra light layer with a true down sweater design, The North Face Thunder Vest for women will transition effortlessly into street wear thanks to the feminine cut and unique baffling. Love.
