Warm Up In Down Vest
Typical Down Bunches when laundered
Wash instruction says machine wash, tumble dry. BUT, the down clumps. I tried putting sneakers and tennis balls in dryer with vest. After 60minutes in dryer It helped breakup the clumps, BUT did NOT make the down stretch all the way across vest. I continued to break up clumps rubbing in my hands and tumbling with sneakers in dryer. After 3 hours, I give up. I will not do this every time needs washed, so I cannot keep it.

The Perfect Piece!
Every year, Hanna presents me with one item I consider the I-must-have-it for my granddaughter this Christmas. The down vest--in sunshine yellow--shouted, "I'm the one!"
Simple and unadorned, it's stylish looks stand on their own. The arm holes are cut deeply so as not to bind, and the zippers are high quality and sturdy. The vest is lightweight, but over a sweater or even a heavy shirt, it's down/feather filling will keep your child warm on all but the coldest days or lengthiest periods outdoors.
Two big pluses, moms, dads, grannies: NO DRY CLEANING NEEDED; and it's finished with a fluorescent Scotchguard so your girl or boy is more visible to drivers while bike riding or walking.

My grandson picked this out for himself!
My grandson picked this out for himself and couldn't wait for it to arrive. When it arrived, he put it right on and wore it for several hours even though it was still the middle of summer. I'm sure I am going to see him in it a lot this fall and into the winter - probably into the spring too. He chose the bright yellow color. We'll see how well it wears; I'm sure it is going to get a workout.
