Also I am in the market for a down Jacket. I would prefer a double zip, and definietely want a hood. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have being eyeing the Marmot Ama dablam, but am also interested in the MH Synchronicity Jacket, and Arcteryx Fission SV Jacket. Does anyone have any of these? would you reccomend them? I have always liked Arcteryx though I am unsure if I want to spend so much on a jacket that is just as good as it's compeditors besides looking much better. For the time being I would be using them in Alberta/BC alpine climbing and ice climbing. Though I am hoping it will work well in the future for Denali and Aconcagua.

I could not wear them together because the combined bulk made movement too difficult and it simply was not cold enough to need them both, even at -30 F. I sold the lighter weight puffy and on really cold trips I use a high lofting light weight fleece jacket (i.e. Patagonia R2, MH Monkey Man) under my belay jacket (a Wild Things Primaloft Insulated Belay Jacket). If I were to get a down coat I would look at the Patagonia Fitz Roy Hooded jacket.

How small does the Wild Things Belay jacket pack down? I found a review online that says it weighs 2lbs, is this accurate? The Wild Things website is under construction, as usual.

I just weighed my WT Belay Jacket (size medium): 1 lb 13 3/4 oz. It packs into a stuff sack about 8" X 6".
