    Nest Vest

    How do you use the Nest as a parka length vest?

    There's a pic of that in the first and fifth post here. I'll bet Hetairoi can explain it further.

    Well, I know how I do it, no idea if this is correct but ... pull the velcro split open, pull over your shoulders, then put the velcro back together up to your neck as needed. You can let it hang or use the suspension kind of like a belt. It works well for me. Looks goofy, but works great

    yep, you can see it better in the pic from the fifth post. Mine is the Winter Nest and very, very fluffy.

    That way makes it much like a poncho. You can also overlap the two halves over your torso, then cinch it down with the drawstring. It's a little smaller that way, but either way works.

    Far better to just get a No Sniveler to go with the Nest.
