Season's Vest

Mountain Life 0304

Celebrate the sun—and corn snow—in outerwear's light-weight cousin.

1 Spyder

Use the Core Insulator Vest ($90) all season long as a cold-weather layering piece or a stand-alone springtime outer layer.

2 Marker

The tight weave of the Lift Insulator Vest ($99) creates a water-resistant and highly breathable soft-snow companion.

3 Bogner

The Kapella ($298) is part of Bogner's urban tech group—it's well-suited (and fitted) for both the slopes and a night out.

4 Helly Hansen

The Venus ($100) is a down vest in a diva's body. The hip fleece-lined hood will block out a sudden spring storm.
