Columbia Alpino II Reversible Down Vest - Men's - 2008 BCS
From cleaning up camp on cold mornings to drinking river-chilled beers after the sun sets, the Columbia Men's Alpino II Reversible Down Vest is up to the occasion. Insulated with 700-fill down, this Columbia vest insulates your core when a full down jacket would be overkill. Warm your digits in the two handwarmer pockets, and store your GPS, cell, or iPod in the chest pocket—the down will help keep the battery warm. If you're in the mood to switch up your look—or you spilled last night’s dinner on it—reverse the Alpino Down Vest, and rock a new color.

This vest is, typically for down, light weight and warm. Very cozy! I'm 6'0" and 180lbs and the L fits quite well--fitted in the torso without be constricting, and long enough. The reversible feature is kinda nice, but due to zippers, etc. you can tell this vest was not REALLY meant to be reversed--it looks awkward with the lighter color out. Regardless, this is a great, cozy, warm vest. Columbia may not be considered as high end as ArcTeryx or some other brands, but this is a well made, well fitting vest.
