Men's Vest Styles
When we are talking about vests, we mean outdoor styles ready for the hiking trail or mountainside. However, that doesn't mean you can't wear one with your everyday clothing. In fact, men's puffer vests are very much in style right now. Our Retro Nuptse Vest is, by far, our most popular style.
While down vests offer the best warmth, a men's fleece vest is a great choice when you want something more lightweight. Our Denali vest is made from Polartec® fleece and will help keep you dry thanks to the water-repellent finish.
What to Wear
No matter what style you choose, a vest looks great with everything from casual pants to jeans. Wear a solid color long-sleeve shirt underneath or consider pairing a solid color vest with a plaid button-down shirt.
What Season Are Vests For?
Vests are ideal for cooler days such as those in fall or spring. They can be worn in mild winter conditions, but are probably not best for bitter cold. That is when a parka or a winter coat should be worn.
What Is The Purpose Of An Outdoor Vest?
Vests are designed to keep your core warm without restricting movement in your arms. For that reason, they are a go-to choice for bicycling, running, fishing, camping, and hiking. Unlike a bulky coat, they allow for freedom of movement to set up a tent, use hiking poles, cycle the trail, cast a line, and scramble up a boulder.
