Clearly taking some design cues from the likes of Pennfield’s Rockwool Vest, Patagonia’s Slingshot down vest mixes its tried and true technical appeal with a few key touches of fashion-focused flair. Insulated with 600-fill goose down, like all vests, it’s great for keeping your core toasty while retaining flexibility and movement in your arms. It also comes with its own stuff sack for tight compression in luggage where space is a premium. That’s good news for backpackers looking to maximize every square inch or you fashionistas who can’t bear to travel anywhere without several outwear options per day.
