        Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Icarus Down Vest:

        I have worn this vest every time I possibly could since I got it. It's very warm, lightweight and looks good both in the Whites and on the streets in Boston. Other down jackets I've had in the best have shed considerably more at this point, so I'm very impressed that I've had it a little over a month and have not yet lost any down. I have recommended this to everyone and am considering purchasing a jacket as well.

        Warning - you should probably try this on in stores before buying, the sizing is a little odd. I'm 5'10" with an athletic build. I found the medium had a lot of extra room around my torso (and in the coats I tried on, roomy and long sleeves as well). I found the small fit my width and sleeves better, but was about at inch shorter, which was too short for me.

        Poor Fit and Shiny Finish

        By Al S

        from Little Compton, RI

        Verified Reviewer

        Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Icarus Down Vest:

        Bought as a Christmas Gift for my wife. Didn't fit well and she didn't like the very "shiny" finish of the material, she said "it looks like a garbage bag".(I ordered black) It seems well made and I'd guess it's warm, but no go on style and fit.

        Not Quite

        By Horsey

        from NH

        Pros

        • good color
        • Lightweight
        • Longer in back
        • Not too puffy

        Cons

        • Collar Rubs Chin
        • Poor Fit
        • Zipper Flap Gets Caught

        Best Uses

        • Indoors

        Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Icarus Down Vest:

        The fit is such that it buckles up like a spine along the zipper. Also there is a big fold that develops around the tummy. Although I like how it goes down longer in the back, the whole thing is a little too long so that when sitting it tends to pop up around the shoulders and chaff at the chin.

          Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Icarus Down Vest:

          I love this vest. I also have the jacket. They are both well made and just what I was looking for for hiking and snowshoeing, warmth without bulk. However I do find the jacket to warm when doing a lot of elevation and therefore I purchased the vest also. They are a perfect combo and I highly recommend them.

              I have layered this vest under a outer shell jacket, worn it with jeans and a cute top to work, and out and about running errands. It's so lightweight and not "poofy" like some downvests. I hardly notice I am wearing it. The color is beautiful and I have received many compliments. I like the versatility of this vest and will be able to wear it 3 seasons of the year!

                  Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Icarus Down Vest:

                  This was my first down purchase, and I was not disappointed! From day one, when my boyfriend told me it looked AMAZING, to several months later (now), when I've been wearing it almost every day on top of a baselayer and under a jacket, it has held up great and keeps me warm. I love the comfortable active fit and how easy it is to layer. I usually wear it for around town, but I also have worn it for running on colder days, and it's held up well.

                  The only thing that isn't 100% is the zipper on the inner pocket, which is the packable pocket. It often catches on the lining, which is extremely thin, which is annoying.

                      Could not be more satisfied. It was -10F air temperature yesterday with a wind chill of -35F on my 20 minute walk to the bus stop in Minnesota. This vest kept my core so warm that I was nearly too hot. Not to mention, it looks cute! It's a bit long which I like as I sometimes wear it with leggings. I got this for 50% off but wouldn't hesitate to pay full price.

                            Love it, very warm and comfortable. A friend has a NF vest and it is not as warm... only 600 fill. Love the cut and the longer length in the back. The weight is fantastic, very light - but keeps you warm!
