Although there is only a few months of Winter left I was finally able to track down a down vest. As I've stated earlier I'm a fan of snaps on a down vest rather than a zipper and this L.L. Bean vest just happens to fit that bill. I was on the hunt for a tan coloured down vest so I was lucky enough to stumble across this one . It's my first down vest and is sure to get a lot of wear in the remaining cold months.
