I don’t know if you were responding to me but my Montbell mirage is 13 ounces and warmer than my FL chamberlin which is listed at 25 ounces (don’t know which size is that weight). Chamberlin is tougher and more windproof but still, the difference in overall warmth is instantly noticeableGood luck, can’t wait to hear how it goes
The superdown ultra is $300 and offers very little warmth. The superdown pro is $400 and is warm but overpriced.+1 kuiu superdown
Spend your money on experience before you spend it on fancy gear.
What is the lightest jacket with greatest amount of warmth for early fall backpack mountain hunting (Aug-late Sept.)? Will have rain jacket, so weather proofing not too important.
Looking at jackets like First Lite's Brooks Down Sweater for example.
Yep I’d be in line for that! I have a space man one and it is more muted in person and would blend in just fine in the mountains in rocky areas, but I do have a Caribou brown Arc’Terx Cerium LT on the way not entirely because of the color but I definitely think I’ll prefer the brown color around town.
