An essential and incredibly cozy puffy vest that’s as warm as it is stylish, the Stratus X Hooded Vest offers condensed core warmth and classic alpine style in a toasty warm, environmentally conscious package. The Stratus’ 100% recycled polyester shell is not only durable and eco-friendly, but it features a DWR finish that sheds wind and light precip during variable winter days. Inside, we used our innovative MerinoLOFT™ insulation, a sustainable and high-lofting alternative to synthetic fills made from all-natural merino wool (up to 10% of which is recycled), which retains warmth when wet and naturally helps regulate body temperature. The Stratus’ insulated, adjustable hood features a cozy insulated internal collar, and we also lined the vest with 100% woven merino wool for incredible next-to-skin softness. Zippered front pockets keep your hands safe from chilly winter winds, and a zippered interior pocket keeps your valuable essentials secure.
