Launch Vest

Drawing on the popularity of our Launch Jacket and Pullover, we developed the Launch Vest. Constructed from a pre-baffled stretch ripstop, the lightweight Launch Vest is an ideal piece for transitional weather. Insulated with 800-fill-power goose down at the front and back body as well as the collar, the vest features 60 grams of PrimaLoft® Bio™ insulation—made from post-consumer recycled, biodegradable fibers—at the side body panels. Additionally, the pre-baffled construction means the baffles that contain the down are woven into the fabric itself, so there is no need for exterior stitching, keeping the surface of the fabric completely smooth. This process also means down feathers will not leak through needle holes in the seams, as often happens in traditional down pieces. And the matte-finish, gorgeous-to-touch, nylon-and-spandex blend has tremendous stretch and ease of movement. The Launch Vest features a center-front zipper, as well as zippered hand pockets (the wearer’s left-hand pocket has a hidden phone pocket on the interior). Additionally, there is a zippered interior pocket on the wearer’s left side. The water-resistant Launch Vest is an incredibly breathable, stretchy, down layer so versatile it will come in handy almost every season of the year.
