5.0 out of 5 stars Keeps me cosy
Fantastic! Well fitting, keeps me nice and warm under my coat when freezing and on its own when its warmer.
Worth the investment!

3.0 out of 5 stars Warm but down comes out
Got the vest 2-3 weeks ago. It is very warm and I have been wearing it quite a lot, unfortunately down does come out of it through the exterior layer. Strangely enough the fabric used for interior lining doesn't let any down out, only the exterior one. Got it at half price so not a bad deal, I probably wouldn't buy again. Also keep in mind if you are into washing your new...

4.0 out of 5 stars Warm and cosy,
Bought for my wife's birthday - in November.
It didn't disappoint and she's worn it none stop.
A very good buy.

Also keep in mind if you are into washing your new clothes prior to wearing them, this will have to be dried in a dryer, recommendation is to add a couple of tennis balls in the dryer with it to redistribute the dawn.
4.0 out of 5 stars Berghaus, quality as always,
This is not the latest version and lacks the inside pocket that many berghaus jackets have. The logo is printed not embroidered like the original versions. That said, it was considerably cheaper (£45 rather than rrp £90). I miss the inside pocket but otherwise it is very warm, fits nicely (im usually a 12, but 10 fits good with tshirt and jumper - not too tight round armpits either & i've broad shoulders and big guns!). My other lasted 6 years, this one going well so far!
4.0 out of 5 stars Fitting on the small side.,
On the whole pleased with this purchase. Very warm, light, quick and easy to slip on; also 'crushable' into a bag without spoiling its appearance. Only drawback is that the sizing is not very generous. I would normally buy a 14 but ordered a 16 so that it could be worn over a thick sweater but found that it is rather too tight for this purpose. Maybe I should have returned it and re-ordered an 18 but . . .!
5.0 out of 5 stars Essential cold weather gear,
This review is from: Berghaus Women's Akka Down Vest (Sports Apparel)
This is a well made garment - as expected from Berghaus. It is quite puffy, but compresses easily and springs back again - (I sometimes wear a waterproof over the top). It is like wearing a weightless duvet all day. I bought my daughters the Landsend 600g Down gilets as these were too large for them, but they don't come close for softness nor warmth.
Great value and essential for me in Aberdeen, Scotland.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great gilet!!,
Delivered fast, lovely and soft / cosy / warm. Love the high collar which is great for keeping out drafts. Easy to slip in over sweaters, works well as an extra layer under other coats.
Also ordered a size 14 (to check the sizes) which I returned - but had to pay £5.20 postage - a bit steep! The size 12 was described as black, size 14 jet black - both the same (a good black).
5.0 out of 5 stars Heading due vest,
Bit of a walker, always dashing here and there needed something light-weight, durable and smartish, this was ideal. What also love about this vest is that it isn't bulky like some of its rivals which means you can layer up without feeling restricted.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Gilet,
This sleeveless jacket is cosy, warm, and not bulky. I have worn it almost daily since receiving it. The only (very small) criticism is that it dips slightly at the back, but this seems typical of most Berghaus jackets.
5.0 out of 5 stars New essential jacket,
I'd been looking at this type of bodywarmer for a while but decided on the Berghaus one for the reputation of quality and the great price on amazon. Size is on the small size but I'd ordered larger anyway to layer.
5.0 out of 5 stars Berghaus Gilet,
Excellent quality providing real warmth without bulk or weight. Would recommend this product and the suppliers. For the size I was lucky with a reduced price but would still recommend it even at full price.
