A versatile layering piece the Outdoor Research Women's Refuge Vest uses innovative synthetic insulation to pull off the balancing act of keeping you warm (but not too warm) during cold weather aerobic activity so you stay dry and comfortable.

The exterior shell is constructed of wind- and water-resistant ripstop polyester with mechanical stretch that helps you maintain an uninhibited range of motion. VerticalX polyester insulation effectively manages moisture so that you remain dry even during high-intensity activities. Unlike down the insulation continues to keep you warm even if it should become wet. An ActiveTemp treatment means that the insulation is more breathable when you're warm and changes to conserve heat when you're not. An elastic drawcord hem seals out drafts.

Other features include a full-length front zipper a brushed tricot-lined front collar a carabiner loop a key clip a zippered chest pocket and zippered hand pockets. The left-hand pocket even doubles as a stuff sack for the vest when you're not wearing it!

Available in your choice of size and color options the Outdoor Research Women's Refuge Vest has a standard fit that balances thermal efficiency with the expectation that you'll be wearing other layers underneath it.

nice vest but odd fit in the shoulders


I'm returning the item so didn't try it out, but it seems like a high quality, warm vest, up to OR standards.


I have broad shoulders and muscular back and arms, but even so, the arm holes were huge on me. (And I got my usual size.) Also, the top corners of the shoulders stick out in a weird way, almost like mini epaulets. I noticed this on the vest that the person is wearing in the Enwild product video and thought perhaps she just has extra narrow shoulders, or hadn't taken the time to get the vest fully situated. However, no matter how firmly I pulled down on the vest, the corners still stuck out in an awkward way. I also thought that maybe the fabric was wrinkled there and eventually would smooth out, but on closer inspection it seems to be caused by the way the seams on top of the shoulders are sewn.
