Why does all down clothing smell like old mildew doona? Sent it to the dry cleaner to get stench out. But.. It is a lovely vest, looks great on my daughter, fits true to size. A little small around the arm hole. Got a Large in Ivory, it has a bright blue lining, and a pink in XL. There is quite a big difference between the sizes. The large is definitely a kids size 12-14! But the XL is an adults size. Not too bulky & seems quite warm. Tiny pockets. Well made and looks like it is good quality.

Bought the size 7/8 in cream which goes with everything...it will fit my daugher until she's 10..sizing is on the large side for us. However, she's happy to wear it now and it looks lovely....in fact its been hard to get it off her. Jacket is well made with no loose threads. The filling / padding is thin - not thick feather and down....but not too thin. Will use for layering under ski jacket and as a winter jacket here in NZ. Zip pocket inside. Royal blue lining. Arm / sleeve holes have elasticated gators.

Nice down vest. It seems to be warm enough, very lightweight, and cute. Good coverage around the arms. It does not seem to be wind or water proof. Also zipper hook broke off the first time I tried to zip it on my child. We just attached something else though and zipper works just fine now.
