You may end up taking the Patagonia Men’s Down Sweater Men’s Vest wherever you roam, from summer alpine trips to winter ski sessions in the backcountry. Just stow the vest inside its chest pocket before you pack it up, but be sure to let it out regularly so its plush 800-fill Traceable Down insulation retains its soft loft over time. Patagonia’s Traceable Down comes from non-live-plucked and non-force-fed geese; a fact that’s been third-party-verified. To enhance its green status, Patagonia made the shell out of a recycled polyester ripstop that’s light, windproof, and water-resistant thanks to the DWR finish. Patagonia updated the Down Sweater with a more contoured fit that’s longer for better coverage on cold camping trips, and the hem and both cuffs help retain the down’s wonderful warmth. Patagonia also added two zippered handwarmers and a zippered internal chest pocket that doubles as a stow pocket when it’s time to head back home.
