One wears a vest when warmth is desired, yet something needs to get done. With arms free and clear, the wearer can be that much more efficient. Which is certainly the case with our Vertical Insulator Vest. We chose to take it a step further by featuring a full-dull nylon shell with 6% stretch, allowing fitted yet athletic movement. The channel-quilted lining, double-faced sherpa knit pile, continues throughout the tall stand-up collar. This focused insulation, in combination with stretch side panels, makes this a highly functional piece. It’s as close to wearing a teddy bear as you’ll ever get. We pretty much have one of these on from the middle of October through the end of March. Every day. Because, as you can imagine, we have a lot to get done. Also available as a jacket.
