Sierra Designs Vest 650 fill
Reviewed by Kathryn from TN on Wednesday, March 22, 2017
This is a fine vest for Men at a very reasonable price. I would consider this a slimmer fit for sizing. The L fit close to the body for someone wearing a Sport Jacket size 42/43 - 180# - 5'9" tall, and normally wearing between a M and L shirt. I think the arm holes are designed smaller with elastic fitting so the area around the arms keep out cold air, it also gives you more freedom of movement with less binding but with a tighter than normal vest fit in the upper arms and shoulder area. I like the fact that it fits without bulk in the chest and upper body and is ideal as a liner for layering. Material appears strong, fill weight seems normal for a 650 fill vest, I cannot comment on the dry down for I have not worn it in the rain. You can get some interesting information about the Dry Down concept on the company website. The colors are muted and not glossy, the black is a heather grey-black,the green a heather dark green.
