Designed to echo its popular counterpart, the Lykos Vest has all the features of Kryptek's popular Lykos II Jacket. Filled with 100% synthetic insulation, this vest is extremely lightweight, water-resistant, and perfect for everyday wear or use in the backcountry. Designed to perform even when wet, synthetic insulation dries faster, doesn't clump like down, and keeps you warm.Now offered in Kryptek's Highlander pattern, the Lykos Vest features two zippered hand pockets, two oversized internal pockets, and an adjustable waistband. The Lykos Vest is sure to quickly become one of your favorite pieces.
Excellent vest. Fits well, material seems durable and pattern is good for high desert use. Overall a very good buy!

I have this vest in black. I use this vest primarily for work reasons, I wear it as a cold weather piece with a dress shirt underneath for my day to day business situations.

This is my first “puffy” vest and I finally understand the hype of them! It is so warm and perfect for when you need a bit more insulation. Size was perfect for layering on top or below. Will be getting another one in Highlander pattern!

"Great for late season whitetail"
Wore this over a long sleeve for walking in the low 40’s and it kept me plenty warm. Layered it between a T-shirt and my Aegis jacket in the high teens and didn’t get cold once during an afternoon sit. Overall great purchase

"I bought a 2nd if that tells you anything. "
I got a highlander vest for layering while hunting and then a black one for normal wear. Great warmth to weight and fairly water resistant. I don't use it to bust through brush since I'm fairly certain the material will snag on thorns, but I'm ok with that (I layer this under a tougher outer vest or save it for once I'm where I want to be) . Pockets are ample, although big stuff in the inner pockets can make it difficult to grab stuff in the outer pockets. Extremely comfortable and a great way to insulate your core when it's cold but you're going to be too active for a coat. Also great if you're an athletic guy with little in the way of natural insulation and it's too chilly for just a hoodie but not enough for a coat.

Recent got this vest and I love it! I've worn it out to evening events but I also out it to the test this week while out seaduck hunting on the Pacific ocean off the coast of Washington in the Puget Sound. It rained all morning and the best while the exterior was soaked, it was dry on the inside and kept me warm all morning! What a great product!
