Bought very recently but impressively effective immediately. Age, heart condition and medication mean a lot of sweating and susceptibility to cold. My Hilltrek Ventile jacket is great but when the wind is strong and the chill-factor is high any inner sweatiness on the windward side gives rapid cooling. This vest does away with 99% of this effect. I can wear a light cashmere over it then my Ventile and keep comfy without sweat-cooled areas. I would however, be an instant customer for a mid-layer bulkier-mesh vest to go between wool and Ventile to completely cut out cold bridges in the worst conditions. something on the lines of that polypropylene lining in Antarctic jackets by Fjallraven(?). OK I might just have to make do with a fishing net!
