The Solace Lightweight Down Vest is an ultralight, warm and packable down vest that packs into it's own pocket for convenient storage when your on the move.  

Yeti says:

The Solace is a high quality lightweight down vest weighing only 171 grams in size M. It is a step up in insulation value from our lightest range of products so while the weight is still in the lightest category and the pack size is kept ultra small, the Solace gives you solid insulation whether you use it as a mid layer garment during activity – or you pack it as a piece of safety kit to make sure you stay warm after your workout or trek.

SERIES OF LIGHT-WEIGHT-PRODUCTS

Since 1983, we have been developing high-quality down sleeping bags and down clothing. For adventurers and explorers we have always been fighting for each millimeter of pack size and each gram of total weight. However, in everyday life or on small trips the equipment of people often is still inappropriate.

THE TECHNOLOGY INSIDE

The Next to Nothing Technology among others means that: for all Companyon products we are processing the currently lightest and most exclusive materials.

Thus, the downproof rip-stop nylon fabric weighs just 25 grammes per square metre. The secret of lightness is based on the 1,000 kilometres yarn holding the downs together. This yarn has the size of a twentieth of a human hair, these 1,000 kilometres of yarn weigh only 140 grammes.

 

LIMITED EDITION

In all over the world, there are just five weaving machines available who can manufacture such a fine material. All these machines can be found in the North of Japan. Each of them produces only 35 metres per day.

 

For this reason the delivery quantity of Companyon products is limited.




Yeti Companyon series at Ultralight Outdoor Gear
For this reason, we have created a professional equipment for everyday life with extremely small pack sizes under the label “Companyon“. The weight of Passion sleeping bags or ultra-light-weight clothing is hardly noticeable. Almost weightless they provide for a comfortable body climate and feel soft and silky.

The Yeti Solace Lightweight Down vest is basically the hood-less and sleeve-less version of the Purity jacket. It offers a great warmth to weight ratio and is one of the lightest down vests we stock with a large amount of high quality down fill.

What we particularly like about this jacket is it's elasticated arm holes as it makes it more comfortable when your reaching with your poles. You can also tighten up the hem using the drawcord to prevent drafts from entering and the jacket can be packed into it's own pocket for easy storage.

Overall a really good lightweight vest. The only thing that might not be to everyone's liking is the outer face fabric as it's a little rustly.
