Official description

The Stierna Aurora 2.0 Vest is a lightweight, down-free insulation vest with stretch panels at the sides — perfect for layering.

First impressions

I liked the style of this gilet and it fitted really nicely.

Overview of performance

I like how well this gilet worked as a top layer as it was water repellent and kept me warm. It also worked really well as an under layer when colder because it was breathable and cosy. Best of both worlds!

Likes and dislikes

While I loved the style and fit, and thought the colour was nice, it is quite plain and could have had some more coloured design features to make it stand out more.

Verdict

A useful warm and versatile gilet
