SNOWGUM Merarpi Down Vest Womens
What is it?
You solution to wanting down insulation - but only for your middle.
Why do I need it?
A full-on down jacket can sometimes be overkill. There’s such a thing as too warm. Enter: the down vest! (You can probably see where this is going…). It’s just as toasty warm as the down jacket, but, wait, no arms!
This baby is perfect for winter exercise. It’ll keep your arms free to run, jump, bike ride, star jump, cartwheel without restriction, but will make sure your core stays snug. (To be honest, it’s perfect for non-exercising days too, when the weather is cold, but not that cold!).

- Close zippers before washing. Using a down soap, wash gently by hand or use a front-loading washing machine on the gentle cycle.
- Rinse repeatedly until the water is crystal clear. If hand-washing, gently press the water out, and let drip dry. If a laundromat spin extractor is available, rinse two to three times, use the extractor, and repeat.
- Machine Dry (air-drying is too slow and risks mildew). Use a front-loading dryer, large enough that the article can tumble freely. Set it to the lowest heat. Add a clean tennis ball to break up the down clumps. Make sure the item is completely dry and there are no clumps left in the down before you remove it, shake to re-loft down.
