Patagonia Los Gatos Vest - Women's
PatagoniaLos 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.

Just “ok”

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Small

This runs much smaller than other Patagonia products. I’m usually a small, and the small was quite short, and snug around the waist and under the arms. The color is kind of washed out (I got the blue). I will be returning this.

My go to vest

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Medium

This is my go to vest during the cold weather. It is cute, light and warm. I had to size up thought as this runs very small. For reference , I usually wear a small in Patagonia, and I bought a medium in this vest.

Diggin' the look...

I bought this for my daughter. The vest is actually the fashion accessory that is both good looking and practical as it does lend a fair amount of warmth. The first day she wore it to high school she received a lot of compliments. Plus the vest does seem well made and durable.

High quality, looks great!

I bought my girlfriend this vest for a good layer on the trail running or hiking. She's always running cold but still sweats as you would expect. This vest seems to keep her very warm but still gives her the flexibility for movement on the trail. It looks awesome on her. I got her the burnt orange color and it looks great as well as functional.

Love this vest!

I purchased this vest about a month ago, and I love it so much! It's so soft, and more fitted than a lot of Patagonia products. If you want to wear this over thicker shirts I'd suggest sizing up. It's a new staple for me!

Lives up to the hype

    Like everyone else says in the review, this vest is perfect. I love that it is a little casual yet durable for camping/hiking trips! Can't say enough about this vest! I did size up and I'm happy I did. I am usually a small but went with a medium and its the perfect fit.

    Soft and Comfy Vest

    Patagonia makes great products and this is no exception. It is unbelievably soft and fits great. The pockets are well placed and soft inside. It also looks great. Nice enough to wear out on the town or functional enough to use on outdoor trips.

    Soooo Soooffffffttt!!!!!!!!

    I am giving this as a Christmas gift to my daughter. While wrapping it last night my wife got her hands on it. She can't believe how soft and nice it is. Luckily she has a birthday coming up in March!

    Awesome vest!

    Really love this vest! I've never been a vest person and the Los Gatos has turned me pro-vest. It's SUPER comfortable and warm. Feels as soft as it looks. I ended up getting one for my mom because she liked mine so much. 10/10 would totes recommend!

    oh yeah

    This vest is awesome. To be honest, I was never a vest person until I purchased Patagonia's Bivy Down Vest for a recent trip to Iceland, but that one got me hooked! I wanted to get one that isn't so warm or bulky for everyday wear, and this one is perfect! It's super cute, fuzzy, and the pockets are super soft inside. I also love how it looks over a flannel (I got the El Cap Khaki, so it basically goes with everything I own)! I'm normally between a Small and a Medium in Patagonia, but since I got the Bivy in a Medium, I got the same size in the Los Gatos...definitely a good idea! It runs a little small, but not a ton. I'd just say to lean towards the larger one if you're in between sizes. Love, love, love!

    Perfect for Apres Ski or Traveling

      I did have to size up but this vest is great to just throw on for an added layer of comfort. Only con is the pockets don’t zip shut.

      Warm and Stylish

      An exceptional piece that is versatile and great for layering... Works well over a simple flannel or simple tee!

      So wanted to love the Los Gatos😢

      This Patagonia vest was well made and oh so warm. I just could not fall in love with its fuzzy texture. Reminded me of a shaggy carpet or blanket. Went with a Better Sweater vest instead. Backcountry’s customer service regarding this return was prompt and professional.

      Great Staple

      I have worn this once and gotten so many compliments already! It is a great purchase and worth the money. Its light, soft, and comfortable.

      I love it! had to return this one and get a bigger size. It runs small.

      So comfy!

      This vest is super comfy and the fleece is so soft. Love it in the khaki color! I am usually a medium in Patagonia apparel which is the size I ordered this vest in. I'd say that it runs true to size for me.

      warm and cozy

      This vest is exactly what I was hoping for-warm, cozy and great for in between seasons. I am tall at 5'8" and wish it was a smidge longer, but otherwise its a great vest.

      Feedback below:
      This vest was exactly what I wanted. I got this in El Cap Khaki in a size medium. The image is true to color. The vest does fit slimmer than other Patagonia jackets/vests I have. I ordered a size up (medium) due to other reviews and i'm glad I did - will probably only wear with a light layer underneath.
