The Patagonia Slingshot Down Vest

Photo of the Slingshot Down Vest from
Patagonia has done a nice job with their lifestyle line this winter. The Slingshot Down Jacket and Vest are great casual outerwear pieces that look great in a lot of different situations. The vest has a western slant to it that is a nice variation on the run-of-the-mill down vest. I think I would like it more if it had a zipper as well as the buttons, but for the first edition of this vest, it's nice.

I found some non-Patagonia-stock photos that give an idea of the detail. I love the khaki color of the vest in the photos below but it seems like it would show dirt pretty quickly. Anyway, I like coming across non-stock photos as they often give a better idea of actual fit and finish.
