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.

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.
