Having drank from the same cup as the Kelvin Jacket, the Kelvin Vest is a layering solution for a number of applications.  When the temperature starts to plummet, and you need a heavily insulated vest; the Kelvin is it. Light, packable and very warm.

Athlete Perspective

Athlete Perspective

“While the obvious use of the Kelvin Vest is the late season, I find it just as beneficial in the early season. The vest packs down to nothing in my backpack but comes in very handy for the first and last hours of daylight on the treestand in the early season when the temperatures drop. This allows me to dress very light throughout  the hunt with a touch of comfort when we normally get those early season shots on feeding patterns. The Kelvin Vest is also a great treestand back support when rolled up or even a nice pillow for those mid-day naps back at the truck."

Great piece of gear. It's my go to after a long approach during my cool down or early morning and late afternoon set-ups. Very packable to insulation value. It's too noisy for the stalk or slow movement through brush. For the price it should be quiet. Arctyrx has a similar vest for less money that is quite if only in camouflage. Use your pant material instead of the poly.

So far, this is my favorite piece of Sitka gear. So light and packable. This is always with me for almost every hunting season. Extremely warm. As one of the other reviewers said, I wear this even in the off season just out and about.

I must say this product is a game changer. My kelvin vest is my favorite piece of sitka gear! I wear this thing when i am late January bow hunting, hunting late season ducks in Arkansas, and almost daily in the off season when it is cold. Yes, this product is a bit loud for bow hunting, but it wasn't built to be an exterior layer. You dont want to wear this vest on the way to the stand or blind to avoid sweating-but that is the beauty of this product. It fits perfect in a pack and i always put it on when i need to warm up. This vest keeps you warm! Best piece of gear i have ever owned.

Very nice, warm insulating layer. I prefer the best since I strictly bowhunt and want to have the least obstruction around my elbows and forearms as possible since most long sleeve garmets fit too snug around my forearms and wrists. I would give the vest 4 stars if the outside fabric was whisper quiet, it isn't. If you choose to use the best under an outer layer that is quiet you'll have no problems with noise. I've killed two deer this year inside 25yds while wearing the kelvin under my 90% jacket. Awesome products.
