The details

This water-resistant puffer vest features a longline silhouette, hood, front zip closure and a storm flap. Two front welt pockets blend seamlessly into the silhouette, giving you a place to keep your hands warm or store your essentials.

Available in sizes XXS - XXL, this hooded vest features side zippers so you can move freely despite the longline style.

The best part? Despite being water resistant, shoppers say this vest is easy to clean. Simply machine wash and tumble dry.

'The perfect winter vest'

If you haven't yet found a vest that is both flattering and functional, this Zella vest may be the one for you. Shoppers love how it keeps them warm without restriction.

"The perfect winter vest. A must for fall and winter. It has the perfect warmth and agility by giving your arms free range of movement," shares one shopper. "I'm 5'2 and it does fit more like parka length on me. I'm still keeping it since the pockets are still easily accessible and it has a hood."

"This is exactly what I was looking for. I have been hunting for a long vest for months. I wanted something stylish and not 'too sporty' looking... this vest is the perfect combo. It's warm, great quality and can be dressed for streetwear or athletic purposes," adds another.

'My new favourite dog walking vest'

Reviews recommend sizing down 1-2 sizes for the perfect fit. The sizing may be generous, but Nordstrom shoppers say the thoughtful design makes up for any sizing issues.

"This is one of my favourite purchases! I bought it in the olive green colour and it is so pretty and comfortable. I love the side zip details," shares one review. "I would say it runs large — I would size down at least a full size. I am typically a medium and I sized down to a small and could probably have even done an XS."

"This is my new favourite dog walking vest. There are always days I sweat in a full jacket but then I put a vest on and complain about my bottom getting cold — problem solved!" shares another. "I have plenty of arm room for layering. The next size up fit fine too but was a bigger look, and I thought more fitted would be better for staying warm."
