You Need an Insulated Vest for Fall, Here’s Why

News flash: the weather is changing and you need to stay warm. A vest is a quintessential way to do just that.


Whether you’re riding horses outdoors, hiking up a mountain or hopping on your mountain bike to rip down a trail, a vest is essential. Around this time of year, the weather drops just cold enough that you need some sort of jacket, but when you’re active, you don’t want your arms to feel constricted. Layering is the name of the game. That’s where an insulated vest comes in. If your core is warm, your brain thinks you’re warm.

This Thermoball vest from The North Face is everything we want in a transitional layer. Wear it over a sweater for an outdoor soiree, under a jacket for an added layer of warmth or on its own during trekking adventures. The Thermoball technology stays warm (even when you get caught in a rainstorm), packs down into its pocket and is built with 15 denier nylon ripstop fabric. Right now, you can pick up a Thermoball vest in eight different colors for over $50 off.
