I purchased this not only for the sleek design but overall product qualities. I have this same product in the coat and love them both. I purchased the small and it fits perfectly , I'm 5'6" 120lbs . This vest is great when out doing errands , you won't get overheated but have plently of warmth with this vest and it's not heavy and bulky like most winter coats .

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

very comfortable
January 30, 2012

I read so many review about it, and I made my decision after I completed all the reviews :) My size is 2 (36-38 Europe) and Small fit just perfectly. I can wear a sweater/long shirt in it. I have enough room, but at the same time it doesn't look big. However, if you will wear only with t-shirt, you may check x-small. You also need to keep in mind that x-small will be shorter than small size. Therefore, I didn’t even consider as an option. Overall, it is a great product, looks very nice! Also, thanks to Altrec! It was an easy transaction, quick shipment. I am a very picky customer, and the product was in perfect shape!

I absolutely love this vest. I decided to buy it when I was a freshman in college and my roommate said I wouldn't be able to live without it once I had one of my own, and sure enough she was right. Definitely one of the best purchases I've ever made, I can wear it in warmer temperatures as well as below freezing as long as I layer properly. I would definitely recommend this jacket to every girl I know, it is really a wardrobe must.

Pros: Performance, Ease of use, stylish, Cons: Cost

Great vest, perfect length
January 01, 2012

This wasn't my first choice of vest only because of the cost. But after ordering and trying on 4 other Columbia vests that were cheaper, this was the one that ended up being the perfect length for my 5'2" frame. It is very warm & I like the little bit of shine it has.

Great vest-have it several colors
November 02, 2011

I love this vest. The satiny exterior is a nice texture and adds a little style to the vest. It's a thick material so the feathers don't shed or poke through at all, which is a big hassle with some down coats. Northface sizing can be a little frustrating and inconsistent. I am 5'6'' 120 lbs and small busted. Their Metropolis coat fits perfectly in XS, the Northface Transit Jacket I own in XS and it is a bit large and boxy. But they don't make it any smaller. This Aconcagua vest I have in both the small-- where it is a little roomy under the arms/bust. And in XS, which fits perfectly in the bust but is a tad short on my 5'6'' frame. I still think I prefer the XS because it looks cute with longer shirts layered underneath. But if you are any taller, this will be too short on your torso. Not sure how the big diamond pattern would look on the front of someone super busty. The satiny material is stronger than the shiny materials they make some of their other jackets in. Which makes the drape a little stiff. It actually gives this vest a nice polish and urbanity. Also, I love Altrec customer service.

not a great vest
December 04, 2012

The outer shell of this vest feels and sounds like plastic. I have several North Face jackets and vests and love them all. This just feels cheap and not worth the money. Its going back unfortunately.

Pros: Ease of use, Cons: Bad design

Aconcagua North Face Vest
January 03, 2011

A very nice vest--but not the traditional "puffy" down vest like the Carmel style North Face. It has a sleeker look and the fabric has a real shine to it, which is not always easy to see in the online pictures. I have worn the vest with jeans, but it is a little dressier than my regular down vest. The vest ran a little big, which was a surprise because I think NF usually runs small, not large. I ordered a small and in the front, it puffed out after zipping it up (I am 5' 2" and 105 and do not usually need petite clothes sizes). I ended up returning the small and purchasing an extra small. It fit everywhere else. One thing on the color--I ordered an "ivory moonlight" which looked a lot lighter on the picture, but is actually more of a champagne color. It's very pretty, but not the cream color I was expecting.

LOVE THIS VEST!!!!
January 05, 2012

This vest is so nice looking and very warm. I am 5'5 and weigh 137 pounds and small fit perfect. It is pricey, but so worth the purchase and I am sure this will last me for many years. I definitely recommend this vest.

The vest fits perfect. It's lightweight and not bulky and very comfortable to wear. It was shipped the next day and received within days after the order was place. I'm considering another purchase.

Great Vest but beware of color
December 11, 2010

True to The North Face products, this vest is a s great as any. My reason for return is that the color that the website showed and specified is not even close to the actula color once the item was recived. Aside from that, if you are a North Face fan, you will be happy with this vest.

TNF Vest
November 12, 2012

This vest seems to run a size larger than other North Face items. I was able to layer up and wear sweaters underneath this vest. That was important to me because I also have The North Face Carmel vest which actually runs true to size. Therefore, I wanted another vest that would provide enough room for me to layer up without feeling restricted by a tight fit. I'm 5'7" with an athletic build and the size medium gave me the extra room that I needed to layer up, while still looking stylish.

Vest is terrific!

This vest was given to my daughter as a Christmas gift and she is very pleased both with the fit and the comfort. A number of places did not have this vest in her size and color - and I was very excited to find it at Altrec. I recommend this site to all!

I bought this vest for my daughter. She absolutely loves it and wears it in the fall and spring, and on warmer winter days. It looks great, is not too bulky, and yet provides more warmth than most vests. We will definitely buy this product again.

It's lightweight and not bulky at all, yet it kept me very comfortable outside. The quality is excellent and I'm considering a second one in another color, so I would definitely recommend it.
