There's no better feeling than the transition from cold to warm. That's why the KÜHL ARKTIK Men's Winter Down Vest is made with a synthetic wax body fabric, so you can throw on a vest and go from cold and wet to comfortable. The stylish design makes this vest a perfect addition to your fall and winter wardrobe. Keep that good, warm feeling with the right vest for any occasion.
Overall, I am very happy with the vest. I originally ordered my normal size, but had to exchange it for the next size up. The vest is very structured, but works well underneath my Filson peacoat and as a stand alone outerwear garment. The vest is warm, has an excellent number of pockets, and pairs well with denim pants and corduroys.
This is the best vest I have ever owned. Love the pockets with the heavy duty zippers. None of those wimpy nylon zippers that break when a little stress is applied. Wore it to Walla Walla last weekend where they were having some real cold weather, kept me warm. The fit was great. Looking forward to buying more of their products.
The vest has a great look and is warm. There are lots of vests out there to choose from but this one is definitely above the lot. They do run a bit small for size, I had to get a size larger than normal.
Having lived in subarctic Alaska, in the mid-1970s when it was seriously cold, this vest would certainly have been an appropriate layer for the weather. I've been wearing it over the last week during a real cold snap in Colorado and have been very comfortable. The cut, features, and quality are excellent. The materials are perfect for a mountain vest. It's not bad for looks in a local brewpub either. Overall a great purchase.
