Which women's vests are best for cold weather?

Any vest will provide you with some sort of core warmth but if you really want to stay snug in cold weather, opt for an insulated vest with down fill. Down vests, or puffer vests as they are also know, deliver warmth without weight through the highly compressible natural down fill that traps heat within its clusters. They provide comfortable, reliable weather protection and pack down easily when you want to stow them away.

Which women's vests are waterproof?

Don't let wet weather spoil your day out in nature. A Mountain Designs women's vest will give you light weather protection against rain, mist or unexpected splashes with its Durable Water Repellent (DWR) finish and durable outer shell fabric. To keep your head dry, look for women's hooded vest styles that provide additional cover for your face and ears.

Which women's vests would be great for camping?

A women's vest is a great outerwear choice for camping as it provides comfortable, lightweight insulation to keep your core warm in cold weather. For camping in mild temperatures, it can easily be worn over the top of a t-shirt or long-sleeved shirt. If the weather turns ugly or your campsite is in a cold spot, zip a rain jacket or softshell jacket over the top for a more protective hard-shell outer. A lightweight vest also allows for greater range of movement, which can make getting around the campsite, especially in-and-out of your tent, easier and less restrictive.

What materials are women's vests made of?

Each style in the Mountain Designs women's winter vest range is made of high quality materials that ensure the right levels of warmth, protection and functionality to enhance your time outdoors. Our down vests - or puffer vests as they can also be called - feature durable ripstop nylon or polyester outer shells, soft-touch nylon linings, and RDS-certified down to bring you the ultimate in natural insulation, comfort and cold weather protection. The down fill is either duck or goose down, which keeps you snug by trapping warm air within its clusters. It is also highly compressible, so your vest conveniently packs down into its own pocket or a separate stuff sack for easy storage and transport when you're not wearing it.

Which vest should you choose for your hiking trip?

Our women's vest range includes down insulation vests that amply equip you for hiking adventures. The down fill naturally traps warm air, keeping your core warm when you're on the trails in cold weather. The down is also highly compressible, so you can pack your vest down into its own pocket or a separate stuff sack for simple storage when you don't need to wear it. For practicality, a hiking vest with pockets is something to consider so you can conveniently stow quick-grab items like snacks, tools or sunglasses, because no-one likes slowing the group down while they rummage through their pack for a missing item.

Why are vests ideal for travelling?

The puffer vests in our women's vest range make a stylish, reliable travel companion for your next journey abroad. They feature high quality, RDS-certified down fill for natural insulation, with a durable ripstop outer shell to further repel the cold. Our puffer vests are also lightweight and highly compressible, making them a comfortable layering piece but also easy to store when you pack them away into your bag.
