Means to an end.

Layer the Armada Men's Arlington Insulated Vest over your lifty uniform so other skiers don't ask you to get their children out of trees when you're off the clock. With a DWR treatment, the Arlington sheds all that snow you spray at the terrain park, and its insulation warms your core from fall to spring. The hood accommodates that helmet you should be riding with, and the ribbed hem keeps snow out of your baselayers. 

  • A freeride vest for sunny spring ripping
  • DWR treatment repels snow and rain
  • Polyfill provides low-profile warmth
  • Moderately tailored fit offers street style
  • Multiple hand and chest pockets let you stash liftline brewskies

Great for Bluebird days

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

This vest is great for those bluebird days on the mountain when your jacket is going to keep you a little too warm, but just riding in your base layer would be too chilly. It's also a great vest to wear around off the mountain when you want to wear something other than all those puffy coats in your closet.

Vest is Best

Love this vest! Bevy of pockets for whatever you need and it's warmer than you would think. Haven't worn it riding yet but looking forward to it. It's a long and baggy fit like most Armada gear but it tapers down the bottom. Large was right for me throughout the body but it might be a little tight sitting down on the lift. Not too much to worry about though.

Awesome layer for beefing up your favorite hoodies warmth, water protection, and style as an extra shell layer. Also, a killer casual layer to throw over your flannel on chilly fall days...
