Debating on upgrading to the super down pro jacket. I’ve been using the super down for a few years and love it. Anyone have experience with both? Is it worth the money to upgrade?

They have different purposes for me.

super down ultra is for summer/august/early sept backpacking trips in mild weather

super down pro is for fall backpack trips in colder weather (40f and below), and for layering under soft shell in really cold conditions.

the main reason to spend $$$$$ on kuiu down is warmth:weight ratio. Really only matters for backpacking. Otherwise there are cheaper and warmer options

The original super down that I assume you have is in between the current Ultra and Pro models. So there would be an increase in warmth, but not as noticeable as people switching from the ultra to the pro.
