Outdoor Research's Transcendent Vest uses 650 Fill Power down combined with a water resistant ripstop outer shell to produce a very able down jacket.
Outdoor Research says: GOOSE DOWN INSULATION PERFECTED Warm, compressible and incredibly lightweight, our Transcendent Collection is built to keep you comfortably insulated when the temperature drops, then stuff away into a corner of your pack when not needed.
The Hoody, Sweater and Vest each feature high quality 650 fill power goose down insulation to keep you cozy during cross-country rambles or when you’re huddled at camp. For multiday treks, they pack down small and stow into their right hand pockets. You’ll have a hard time not finding space to bring along one of these functional, multipurpose styles.
Outdoor Research's Transcendent Vest is a down filled vest with a water resistant outer shell for maximum flexibility. The down Fill Power is 650, which is not the highest but still considered to be premium, but this is reflected in the price of the Vest.
It's well made with the right features, twin handwarmer pockets are lined on the front with micro fleece and the left hand one doubles as a stuffsack. There's a virtually invisible chest pocket which is quite large although wouldn't take an OS map.
With an internal flap backing the main zip, a cinchable hem and a soft lined collar, the Transcendent Vest ticks all the right boxes as a lightweight, technical insulation piece. Perfect for layering over a warm fleece or hoody.
