Men's Nitrous™ Vest 4.8 5 12 12
Love it Perfect fit, perfect weight, quality all around February 8, 2014
Excellent quality Lightweight, warm, really good looking. Works as a single outerwear piece or under a jacket. Strongly recommend it. February 8, 2014
Material Feels Flat I love mountain hardware products however this vest felt cheap. The down was not very lofty and the outside material felt almost like paper. I have a ghost whisper jacket and absolutely love it and I wish I had of opted for the ghost whisper vest. January 16, 2014
Great vest! Runs large. I bought this for my boyfriend - he normally wears large mountain hardware jackets but the large vest was way big. Exchanged for a medium which fit him perfectly. January 11, 2014
My new Vest I just plain love my new Mountain Hardware Vest. Surprised that this thin vest can keep you so warm. With this vest you can turn a light coat into a winter coat with out over heating. Very Happy December 27, 2013
Nitrous Vest = Awesome!! This is a great down vest. It does run a bit large though. I normally wear a large in other Mountain Hard Wear but the medium in the vest fits me best. Combine it with the Nitrous jacket and it's a great combination. December 16, 2013
Just in time. I just got this product straight from Mountain Hardware and it couldn't have come at a better time with the bay area's recent record breaking lows. it's much lighter then i expected and plenty warm. i haven't shoved it into it's own pocket yet but it's been crammed into my backpack plenty for the lenght of time i've had it. i'm in love. this one is replacing my old subzero vest that is still going strong but just to big for me now. thanks again.

Great everyday vest This is a warm lightweight vest great for everyday use. It is small enough to be worn under a coat or just on top of a hoodie on a cool day. I have worn it all day since I got it. December 6, 2013
My husband looks like a mountain man now I don't buy my husband much, but when I do I buy him good stuff like this vest from mountain hardware. now he is cutting down a 100 foot oak tree in the backyard. December 5, 2013
Sweet little vest I own another vest that is very lofty and kind of bulky. I wanted a vest with less bulk and more form fitting, yet warm. This vest fits that bill. I'm 6'2", 170lbs. I've been wearing this vest in size medium over a medium thermostatic jacket and the combo fits me like a glove. I'm very satisfied with this vest. November 24, 2013
Great down vest This is a awesome vest. If you are looking for a light weight vest that will keep your torso warm, the Nitrous vest is the one to buy. I had a chance to pack the vest into its own pocket and it saved a lot of space. I wore the vest in a light rain and the Q-shield never let the vest get wet. I recommend trying this vest on to make sure you get the right size. I can't wait to purchase the Nitrous Jacket next. November 8, 2013
Perfect for my needs The Nitrous Vest is just exactly what I was hoping it would be. Yes, it is still August, but I live at altitude where nights have been in the 40s since I got the vest, meaning cool mornings and evenings. This has quickly become my first grab for keeping core warmth. The slim lines will also make it a great layering piece as we head into Fall. Typical of most items from MHW, the vest has small touches that make it clear someone other than a bean counter was in charge of manufacturing. The small, likely hard to install, channel of fabric along the zippers that mean they NEVER catch on the fabric. The details around the arm hole that help it stay snug when arms are active, preventing drafts of cool air without restricting movement. All around, another 'first grab' piece from MHW.
