The newest Primaloft One has equivalent loft to about 625 down if you are at all concerned about your down getting wet.
Try Cabela's too. Thier Down stuff is on sale now.
I get that, but how often is the down vest going to be the outer layer in the rain? I figure that if you are getting a sleeping bag or coat that would be great, but when it is mostly just an insulating layer, you would be fine to save some money. My guess is that waterproof down ill make any garment way more expensive
What grams would be considered 625? I have seen company's offer their fill in primaloft one from 50 grams(patagonia) to 100+ grams ( helly hansen and Tnf I believe) that's a wide range,
The new quix down from Kuiu looks like it will be the next big step in hunting gear. I can't wait to see where they go with it. Check out the demo on the Kuiu blog.
It's already out, not Kuiu or camo though http://www.gizmag.com/warm-water-resistant-down-jackets/21124/
