Patagonia Los Gatos Vest - Women's

Cat comfort approved, maybe.

While popular opinion and social media might tell you otherwise, you don't have to be a "cat person" in order to enjoy the plush coziness of the Patagonia Women's Los Gatos Vest. With its deep-pile fleece, high collar, and princess seams, this vest boasts a luxurious feel and even more elegant appearance. A chic nylon lining provides added wind resistance, while the DWR treatment fends off light precipitation. Hand warmer pockets keep necessities, like lip balm or keys, close by, and a welted, full-length zipper allows for easy temperature regulation should temperatures start to warm up.

Great Gift

    I bought this vest as a gift and was impressed, as usual, by the quality with which Patagonia makes its products. The fleece is super soft and cozy.

    Cozy vest!

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

    After my initial concerns that I looked more than a little like a sheep, I actually really love this vest. It's super soft and cozy. It's also in no way bulky and is great for layering.
    Think I may purchase in the khaki or grey too as the birch white is a little stark.
    Bought the XS and it fits perfectly.

    I was hesitant to order this vest b/c I was afraid it would feel too bulky. It's actually quite the opposite - lightweight, cozy, and comfortable. It's a great layering piece and fits under all of my coats and is surprisingly warm for how lightweight it is. I wore it on a 10 hour plane ride and was happy I did b/c the flight was freezing! Great buy!

    Fantastic

    My wife bought this vest. Here's her review:
    I've hardly taken this vest off since I got it. It adds a surprising amount of warmth and is super cozy. The deep-pile is more substantial than some fleece, but doesn't make you look like a wooly mammoth. Another great piece from Patagonia that I'll keep for many years. Runs true to size.

    Stylish and Warm

    Got this as a gift for my girlfriend, and she loves it! It is perfect for layering, the color goes with everything and it is significantly warm!

    I bought this as one of my wife's Christmas presents- she loves it. The liner on this vest makes it completely wind proof. She has barely taken it off. Another important thing about this vest is that it actually has a shape- it fits the curves of her body and doesn't look like she's borrowing my vest. She recommends it. The height and weight is hers below- not mine. Don't tell her I'm telling you...

    LOVE

    • Size Bought: Extra small

    I absolutely love this! I now want it in every color. It's beyond soft and incredibly warm. It's a perfect layer.

    Cute and Snuggly!

      I love this vest and wear it whenever I can! It's so warm and I feel so cozy when I wear it. It's easy to pair with sweatpants or jeans or a dress.

      Super comfy!

      a. Great layering piece. Color is perfect and lends itself to set the vest up to be the center piece of your outfit. Enough room under armpits for layering a flannel, fits snuggly at the waist when zipped.

      Comfortable but a little short

      • Size Bought: Medium

      Vest was comfortable. Seemed made very well, with a liner that made it easy on/easy off. The Khaki color was nice. But for my tall frame, 5'8" (really not tall?) it was a bit short and unflattering in the mid-section. Great Service from Backcountry!

      So cute!

      • Fit: True to size

      I love this vest!!!!!! It's fuzzy and comfortable while being super cute and stylish. It's very versatile and a winter must have!

      I love it!! but size up

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: medium

      So I went in store to try it on just because of how everyone was saying to size up and i definitely agree. If you're trying to layer under it and at one point zip it up then you should size up. even if you're not gonna zip it up but just layer, then size up trust me. I'm so happy I did and I'm so happy i bought it!! recommend to anyone

      Fuzzy

        Bought this for my girlfriend and this is what she has to say:

        This Lost Gatos Vest has become a staple for my fall wardrobe. I wear it all the time, with everything from jeans and heals to leggings and a flannel. I was expecting the outside to feel like a matted wool type material but it was so much better! The fuzzy long fleece looks so much nicer and more durable. This vest isnt as warm as I would like but I didn't buy it for the warmth, I bought it for the look. Another Patagonia win for the closet!!

        Great sweater vest!

          This vest is great because you can dress it up or dress it down. I got it in the dark grey and even looks better in person. Very soft and warm. I'm 5'5" 125 and got the medium. Long enough but not form fitting. Would get the small if you are looking for more form fitting and wear a thin sweater underneath.

          I like it, shorter than Better Sweater.

          I like this vest and have used it a few times. It is warm and cozy. This vest was a little smaller than the Better Sweater vests. I found it to be both shorter (and I'm short!) and a little more snug in the chest, but did not need to size up. I got the El Cap Khaki and wear it with a longer contrasting base layer.

          Looking Like A Little Lamb!

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          This vest is seriously a clothing staple during the fall/winter for me. The sizing on this is comparable to any fleece fit made by Patagonia or The North Face. The color El Cap Khaki really does make you look like a cute lil' lamb! Very warm and very functional!
