We didn’t hold back on any features. Everything you know and love from our LoftTek Jacket is still here, but the NovaPro Vest takes warmth & performance to the next level!
This innovative puffy vest utilizes all-new Nova Zero Stitch™ Fabric, which is neither bonded nor stitched, but literally woven into place. The I-tube baffle design gives the NovaPro a brand new look while eliminating the chance for stitches to wear out or snag on things as you brush by.
What this means is that you get a jacket with 10,000 fewer stitch holes than typical down or puffy jackets, making the NovaPro more water & wind resistant, and ultimately more durable! It's hard to get any moisture through this fabric!
But we didn't stop there. The new Nova Jacket line also utilizes our brand new DownLT™ insulation, which combines mostly 850 Fill Power HyperDry duck down with a small percentage of synthetic LoftTek. DownLT™ insulation is much more stable than typical down, and will stay lofted even when soaked (in the small chance that moisture even gets through the Nova Zero Stitch Fabric!)
These new innovations give you a warmer, more reliable vest that you can take on any adventure without worrying about it wetting out or not performing the way you need it to.
This vest is ideal for 4th season applications and cold weather uses. The fit should be loose enough to allow other layers to be worn beneath it without compressing any insulation.

Packs Into Own Pocket: Easily transport or store the vest in it's own left pocket! Simply flip the pocket inside out while stuffing the vest inside, and zip closed. Use it when you need it, and pack it away when you don't! Also use the vest as a pillow when it's packed away!
High Neck: Stay warm by sealing in the heat around your neck! When zipped up fully, the NovaPro Vest goes all the way up to your chin for warmth and comfort.
Adjustable Hem: Lock in heat by fitting the hem of the vest to your hips and waist. No need to worry about cord ends hanging down, excess cord will be stored in the front pockets!
Water Repellent Shell: The Nova Zero Stitch™ fabric not only has 10,000 fewer stitch holes (potential leaking points), but is also treated, which makes it difficult to get the vest wet. Water just beads up and rolls off! If the vest does get wet, the insulation stays lofted and continues to insulate.
Insulated Zippered Pockets: Keep your hands warm in the insulated pockets. Also keep your valuables from being lost by zipping them securely into these pockets!
Athletic Fit & Drop Back: The athletic cut and drop back of the vest keep you looking great no matter where you are. The drop back allows you to sit while keeping your rear and back fully covered.
