Mountain Equipment Arete Vest (Winter 17)

The Mountain Equipment Arete Vest is a perfect layer on cool days ideal for providing additional core warmth at a tiny weight premium. Equally suited to climbing, alpinism or ski touring the Arete Vest makes use of 700FP water resistant down for the best warmth to weight ratio. The outer fabric is the super light Helium 20 which contains the down in a stitched through narrow baffle construction.

The armholes are elasticated to keep the heat around your core even when moving around and the dual tether hem drawcords can be cinched up for maximum heat retention. The whole vest packs into one of its two hand warmer pockets where, equipped with a carabiner loop it can be clipped to a harness or pack for quick access without stopping.

Reviewer: Henning, Bergen, Norway  

A nice piece of light down insulation layer to wear under your shell or active insulation during breaks. I even wear it at work over my shirt on cold days. I am 185cm tall with a normal build, so size L was a perfect fit, if wearing a layer of wool or thin fleece underneath.
