$190.00

Color/Pattern
In Stock & Ready to Ship

Building on the success of our popular men’s jacket, the Brooks Down vest delivers ultralight, packable, backcountry insulation in an even lighter package. Built with 100 grams of DWR-treated, 800-fill power, 37.5-DownTek, this piece provides advanced, active insulation that fights off moisture to keep you warm, dry, and comfortable.

When you are miles deep into the backcountry, counting ounces is vital but never at the expense of staying warm and protected from the elements. With that balance in mind, the Brooks was designed using 50% more down than its closest competitor to be the lightest weight possible while ensuring best-in-class warmth. Whether you are packing into the high Tundra for caribou in August or climbing southwestern Sky Islands for Coues deer in January, the men's Brooks Down Vest is the trusted choice to guarantee your warmth while keeping your gear lightweight.

    Brooks Down Vest

    I bought this vest going into spring turkey season in Ontario. I was definitely happy with how it kept my core warm during the cool mornings in the woods and how it fit snug to me. Not too big or too small which is perfect when having to maneuver through the woods.

    Quality Fit, Lightweight and Versatile

    I enjoy the fit and look of all the First Lite Gear so much that I decided to order the Brooks Down Vest to wear throughout the winter months while I am a work, running errands and/or out for drinks with my wife. The excellent fit and lightweight design is exactly what I was hoping for in a vest and paired with a long sleeve button up shirt it’s perfect for work, casual events and wear it as an outer layer over the Wick Short Sleeve Crew and Kiln Quarter Zip or Hoody for a perfect match during those cool days with moderate activity. It’s become my go-to outer layer when a jacket would be to much but when I need to keep my core warm during moderate activity. If you have/enjoy the Brooks Down Sweater then you will really appreciate the versatility of the Brooks Down Vest.
