Women's North Face Aconcagua Down Vest

Cozy North Face Vest for Chilly Nights.

It is still August but where I live we have started to have a few chilly nights. I notice this more as we get into September, so things may be a bit early this year.

North Face has a wonderful solution for women this cozy down filled vest. The Aconcagua is very light weight only 520 grams (just over a pound) and is suitable for chilly nights or as an extra thermal layer under a jacket.

If you have never owned a down vest, it is the height of warmth and light weight. The vest also allows you full mobility of your arms. Obviously a vest is good for taking a bit of a chill off when camping or hiking, but people forget that when skiing in warm sunshine it may be the only heavy top layer you need.

For many years I used a combination of a down vest with a windshell over top as my light winter coat. It was not appropriate for really cold blowing days but for the more moderate ones worked perfectly.
