As part of 686's line of insulated layering pieces, the 686 Women's Airflight Lodge Vest is designed to do two things: stay warm and look amazing. Infidry-10 waterproofing blocks rain and snow creating a versatile outerwear piece, while the 8k breathability transfers moisture making the vest a perfect mid-layer. The Smarty-compatible front zipper zips into 686's line of Smarty jackets making adding and removing a layer as easy as tugging on the zipper. 250g polyester insulation in the body (80g in the hood) cranks up the heat and withstands sub-zero temperatures so you can lay fresh, sunrise tracks.

THE BEST VEST!!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs large
This is quite possibly the best vest I've ever owned. Longer fit, super warm, and can be worn with pretty much any other article of clothing.
The BLACK color-way is definitely more black in person than it is in the photo, and the top has kind of a brushed-denim look (which is super cool), it looks a little green in the photo, but it is definitely black.
I'm 5'5" about 125lbs and I bought a large because i use it as a layering piece for snowboarding a lot of the time. But I could easily fit into a Medium and be completely happy (I just like a larger fit)
Absolutely Love this Vest!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
This has been my favorite vest so far. It is a layering vest so it will run a tad bigger than anticipated. The length is just long enough without being too long to prevent a draft from chilling your backside. Not only is the jacket functional, you'll be sure to get compliments on it.
