The Larry Vest has all the puffiness and warmth you’d expect from 800-fill European goose down feathers but without the bulk. This surprisingly packable vest has polyester ripstop fabric on the outside, which fights off ski-edge scratches and hot sauce stains. The shoulders are packed with 40 grams of Spaceloft micropuff insulation, making them tougher and with more cushion for carrying skis or backpack straps. A two-inch high collar, which is even taller in the back, blocks your neck from wind, while water-resistant goose down insulates your core. Waterproof zippers keep the wet out, and zippered pockets keep your cell phone in.
