    Not traditionally a big vest guy, but I’ve been happy with this one. Sitka sent a couple of these to try out, and it really shined when used underneath a Goretex shell. I liked not having so many sets of sleeves on when I chose to add layers, and this didn’t trap excess heat/moisture. The packability can’t be overstated either. This thing gets stupid small with some compression, and is revived to full volume within minutes of putting it into use. Worth a look for anyone who has gaps to fill in their layering system.

    Heard through the grapevine that they may be producing ranger green textiles soon? Can anyone confirm this and a possible timeline?
