Western Mountaineering - Flight Vest - Unisex

The Flight Vest from Western Mountaineering is just what you would expect from the premier down sleeping bag maker in the US. If you are looking for a lightweight, compact, and highly insulative layer, then look no further; you'll be hard-pressed to find a lighter-weight vest that offers this much warmth. Western Mountaineering has carefully selected the lightest fabrics, zippers, and materials to make the Flight. The shell fabric is a tightly woven 0.9 oz per sq yard, and the total weight is just 6.5 oz. The Flight is a great choice for winter trips to the desert, high-altitude summer camping, and fast-and-light three-season mountaineering. Because this is a lightweight fabric we recommend you use care in areas where you can snag the jacket. Use of a shell is recommended when bushwhacking or climbing!
Western Mountaineering's top-notch construction methods, attention to detail, and years of experience working solely with premium down set them apart from other brands; they are simply one of the world's best down companies, bar none. Based in San Jose, CA, they are committed to manufacturing the in US and Canada. Their down is sourced from free-range mother geese who are never live-plucked or force-fed.

Product Reviews

flight vest
I have been wearing down vests for 40 yrs. and have been looking for a USA made vest that was properly made for 2 yrs. this is it. Review by RICHARD
The best down vest on the market
I am very impressed with the Western Mountaineering Flight Vest. I believe it is the best vest on the market and the price is reasonable. The loft and down quality are superb and the attention to the stitching detail is very good. Plus my vest was tagged as "made in the USA." I look forward to using this vest this winter on backpacking trips and a winter trip to Europe. Review by Nils S
Awesome vest
I have owned this vest for a long time. The material feels very thin, but I have abused it over the years and no major damage has ever happened to it. It's always kept me warm, and it is light enough to pack along with me every time. Review by Eric
