If you want warmth and convenience, then this is the vest for you... Blocks wind... Keeps you warm while arms breathe... Lightweight in terms of bulk but not lightweight in terms of warmth... LOVE this vest!!!
I would recommend this product.

Perfect for keeping a slight chill off or layered under a coat, this vest is so great I ordered 2, one white, the other blue. The pockets are in the right place, the stand up collar's just high enough without being a bother, and the slight fit means less bulk.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this vest to replace a Mountain Hardwear Pyxis vest that I had purchased in 2011. My old vest was a XS and was becoming quite snug, so I decided to buy another in a size up. There are two reasons why I am disappointed with my new vest. First, it is too large. The tag says size S, but I was swimming in it. One of the things I loved about my original vest is that it was form fitting and that alone helped to retain heat. For reference, I am 5'4" 128 lbs. Second, the fabric on this vest is so much thinner than my old one. It's as soft and fuzzy as ever, but it must be near half as thick. I'm considering sending it back because it would only fit well over a very bulky sweater, and that wasn't my intended function.
I do not recommend this product.

I have 3 of these vests now. I bought the first at EMS and loved it so much I searched the internet to find more. They are warm, incredibly soft and so very comfortable! You can wear them around the house or as an outside/outerware item to keep you warm on a moderately cool day. The neck is also comfortable with reinforced fabric so the zipper and other things don't bother your neck or chin.
I would recommend this product.

This vest is an awesome layer. It is really warm and fits great under my coat. It is longer than average and contoured for perfect coverage. The touch monkey factor is off the charts...very nice.
I chose medium and it is a tad loose on my 5'6" - 150lb frame.
I would recommend this product.

Size seemed to be too large, fit much too large, larger than appropriate fit of Pyxis fleece jackets. Wondered if MH may have sent me a man's large. Nope. It was also very long, much too long.
I would recommend this product.

Material is really soft and cozy. Used as a layer on a cold day of skiing and it kept me warm. The collar is tall so it kept my face warm too.
I would recommend this product.

I live in the mountains of Montana and spend a good deal of time outdoors. This vest is perfect for layering, it keeps my core warm without a lot of bulk. In fact I've worn this vest almost every day since I received it.

Bought this as a gift to my mom and she absolutely loves it. The quality of material (as always with Mountain Hardwear) is top-notch. The fit is true. The color options are great and it's just a great vest for mild temperature days.
I would recommend this product.

I bought this vest for my mom and she loves it. The fit is true to size. The quality is excellent and the color, gray, is really nice. My mom loves the fact that it is not too bulky as the down type vests. She said it is extremely comfortable.
I would recommend this product.

At 5'5" and 145lbs and a 38C the Medium in this is slightly larger than I thought. The length is great hitting just below the hip bones. The arm holes are small enough that the collar doesn't jab me in the chin when I sit. It is well constructed and of beautiful material. I was torn between the Steam and the Prussia. I got it in Steam. This has a bit of a blue hue to is and is gorgeous. It works well with all other colors and adds some flash. It is flattering and many have complimented on it.
I would recommend this product.

The Pyxis vest is soft, warm and most importantly does not shed all over my car like previous (cheaper) fleece has. I've worn it to work and for casual hikes so far and have found it to be very adaptable. Not too warm with a long sleeve polypro beneath, not too cold with a merino layer. Add a shell on top and I'm ready for just about anything. The fit is a bit on the large side of medium, and the shape is somewhat boxier than I'd love (why not curvy seams on a women's vest?), but it is a solid and stylish piece of gear. I got the Prussian color. We call it "Cookie Monster Blue."
I would recommend this product.

This fabric is extremely soft and comfortable. The fit is tailored, very figure flattering, not bulky. Lightweight yet warm. Very true to size. Usually wear a small and the small was perfect.
I would recommend this product.

I love this vest - it fits well now that I went down a size. It is sift and warm without being bulky. Perfect or an extra indoor layer in a cool house or outside on slightly warmer winter days...

Great vest! Warm without the bulk of a quilted vest, looks great and so soft. I wear it over tshirts instead of a heavy sweater. Love it!

Very cute vest, it's lightweight but the furry fabric provides a good amount of loft. It has a generous cut, I'm 5'7" 130lbs and ordered the small, thinking it would be quite snug, but it is a good fit- flattering, but lots of room for layers. My only wish is that it was cut a little longer, it hits right around the top of my pants. I prefer tops to be longer, closer to hip-length. But it is really just fine how it is.

The material on this vest is so soft you won't want to wear anything underneath! It's so warm and comfortable. Love the draw string at the bottom that I sync when it's really cold. I can wear a small or medium top, depending on the fit. I had to go with a small, and there was still room to wear something bulky underneath.
