Reviews
Ariat Ideal 3.0 Down Vest is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best down vest-- please bring back black! I have two of these vests and I absolutely love them. I've tried a bunch of brands but keep going back to my two Ariat Ideal Down ones. I live in the Northeast, and I am rarely cold in a base layer, this vest, and the Ariat Team Softshell jacket over it. They have held up wonderfully--the one I bought about 4 years ago is just now starting to fall apart after years of heavy use. I just went to see if I could replace it, but I'm super bummed that Ariat does not have a black color option any longer. Crossing my fingers Ariat releases the black version again soon!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice light but warm, the lining was the same pattern as another vest I purchased last year. That was a bit of a surprise. Why not make the vest reversible? It keeps me warm. That's what I wanted!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great vest, tacky logo treatment This vest is light weight yet warm, well made and nicely shaped. I would have given it 5 stars except that the horseshoe logo and blocky ARIAT lettering was screened on in white making it look cheap. I blackened it with a black Sharpie to give it an embossed look so much better. Also didn’t like the tricolor neck stripes or black and white zipper cord which I just removed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest return! This is one of the best companies to buy from. Granddaughter didn't like the shiny vest! It was really nice & if it had of fit me.....I would have kept it! Jill was the rep I talked to for my return. She was as perfect as a anyone could be as an employee representing this company! I will buy from this company again. For me not the granddaughter this time!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from There was nothing to this vest, very low quality. This would not keep warm at all where I live
Date published: 2021-11-18
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice vest This is my second Ariat Ideal vest. The first was purchased a year ago and I love it! The second vest is nice but much less down and the finishing workmanship is not as nice. I wear it but and like the fit but loved last years model better

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bronze Brown does not look like photos The color of the actual item isn't close to the color on the website. It's a muted brown color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cozy! This vest is great! It’s very lightweight and durable. The fit and length is just right.
Date published: 2021-11-14
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Really nice, but too lightweight for my needs This is a gorgeous color blue and beautiful workmanship but way too light for my needs (closer to team lightweight vest). I was looking for a heavier weight for the winter for my needs. But I wear a size 2X sports bra w big shoulders and an XXL was perfect on sizing.
Date published: 2021-11-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the print! This is super warm and I couldn’t resist the horse print. It’s true to size - I’m 5’6” and 125 ish pounds and the small fits great with room for layering. The zipper does try to stick on the way down if you zip too fast, but it’s not a big enough issue to knock a star off at this point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best, I wear it everyday! I wear this constantly.. its so light and so warm too! Fantastic to wear, flattering and the coolest colors.. washes really well.. dry with a few tennis balls! Can't reccomend highly enough
Date published: 2021-02-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well to keep me warm I really love this vest! I get a lot of compliments, and it works surprisingly well to keep me warm even below 30. They have lots of colors which is nice, but they don’t sell it in black anymore which is disappointing.
Date published: 2021-01-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy One In Every Color Great color, great fit and it keeps you warm. You can ride in it and drive home in it too; it's not bulky at all.
Date published: 2020-12-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! This was my first item from Ariat and I love it. I usually wear it running and it keeps my core nice and toasty, but not over heated, while allowing for freedom of movement. The color, (okay, colors!) is great and pairs great with long sleeved tech shirts when I’m running. I’ve gotten tons of compliments too.
Date published: 2020-12-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vest, perfect for riding! I wish the Ariat logo was embroidered on instead of heat transferred on but it does not affect the function at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy & warm !! My absolute favorite vest! The leopard print couldn’t be any cuter !!
Date published: 2020-10-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm yet not bulky Have had this vest for 2 months now and it's my "go to" piece. Just as the description says: light weight and non-bulky it's perfect for layering but, don't let this fool you. It will keep you warm. (Yes, it does get cold here. Teens last night with feel like of single digits.) Good styling, as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the color! I love the brown! This color goes with everything and it’s so lite that it can be worn under for layering or on top for a warmer day.
