Ha, one more new thread for the day. I'm not seriously looking at the moment, but off and on I've considered shopping around for a good down jacket. I've tried them on, love how lightweight but well insulated the ones I've tried on are and I've heard alot of stories about how warm they keep you on those frigid winter days, but never felt like spending the money to get one. Lately, however, I have considered putting one on my list of things to get as I have one heavy coat and its going to be getting a bit old before long. Just wondered what the best down jackets were? Any advice?
I've looked at NF Nuptse and Aconcagua and like both of them, but haven't really looked at any others much. How well made are those, and Patagonia, MH or Marmot's?
