The Patagonia Micro Puff Vest is Patagonia's lightest creation of a synthetic vest that provides true down like feel and loft yet it will still retain warmth when wet. Ideal for keeping your core warm for alpine / winter climbing, ski / snowboard touring, adventure racing and bivving, it allows you the luxury feel of a down vest without the weight or worry if conditions take a turn for the worse.
It is constructed from a super light and soft to touch Nylon ripstop Pertex Quantum outer / liner that contains PlumaFill sythetic insulation. The PlumaFill is a core fibre with fluffy micro filaments spiraled around it, they work by trapping heat just like down. The unique stitching pattern of the vest keeps the insulation in-situ, preventing it from shifting or clumping and it eliminates cold spots. This combined with a specific construction uses fewer, though larger pattern pieces, to allow the heat to move freely around the vest and creates an amazing loft, just like down.
The vest is incredibly compressible and provides an amazing warmth to weight ratio along with easy garment care and resilience so that it retains its loft throughout the garments lifetime. There are two zipped hand pockets and two internal drop-in pockets. The hem and arm holes are elastic bound and this assists with retaining the warmth inside the vest and its small pack size.
