nice but too snug
December 26, 2009

Nice vest with more contoured fit than others I've seen. The lower bulk and contoured fit would make this a great piece to wear under a shell. Its sized a little small, though--I've got a 41" chest but medium is too small. I plan to try a large.

Decent Vest
March 10, 2013

I was looking for a lightweight vest for Spring and settled on the Nitrous. I am 5'10", 172 lbs, 41" chest, 31" waist and bought the medium. It fit a bit snug around the chest/arm holes but not where it would be uncomfortable to wear. I ordered the Royal color and would say that the pic was a bit misleading as the actual color was more of a Powder Blue. That said, I do think that I can make this work even though the "Royal" is a bit more feminine looking than I would like. The vest, overall, would probably meet the needs of anyone looking for a lightweight, well fitting vest that could be worn on it's own or as a layer.

Pros: Performance, Cons: royal color misleading

Worth the Price
January 28, 2010

This vest is definetly top of the line and that was evident from the moment that I received it. The material is strong and it actually looks better in person than in the pictures. If you normally wear a large but your chest and or arms are a little larger than normal you might want to get the X-large. It fits tight in the chest and around the arms. This helps seal in that core heat but if your to big it could be uncomfortable. Over all I was very pleased with this purchase and feel that it was worth the cost.
