It’s easy to stay warm as you trek through the backcountry, but how about once you’ve stopped to take in the amazing view? The key to a cozy, happy core is layering up with the right outerwear. Our down-alternative fill is lightweight and crushable, so you can keep the Brisktaker Vest squirreled away for last-minute hikes or don it in a freezing downpour. The nylon ripstop shell repels water, but even when wet, the poly fill works hard to keep you warm and ready to knock out that to-do list. Elasticized armholes and a drawcord hem keep the wind out, reinforced by brushed tricot panels at the collar, pockets and storm flap for extra insulation. Keep this versatile vest close at hand for frosty forays when the mercury drops.
