Men's Brooks Down Vest

$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.

    My favorite vest!

    I love the vest, it’s super warm and is great for keeping my core warm. However, I am a little bit disappointed that there is not a women’s version of the Brooks down vest, so I had to settle for the men’s instead.

    Fits Great with Wonderful Warmth

    Worn on an elk hunt in Colorado with some of the Merino wool base layers. This was incredibly light and warm and enjoyed the kit very much. Adding it to my general whitetail kit.

    Overall I am very impressed with this vest. Extremely light weight, and packs down well. I was very surprised how warm it keeps you. I have been using it for glassing and also a layering piece with the unc puffy system. I would very much recommend this product.
