Hi Everyone

Looking for some recommendation on down jackets. My wife and I bushwalk here in Australia (day trips) and getting into hiking (Multi-day). So we are looking to buy a down jacket each that we could use for multi purposes. such as at camp and around town. Winter generally dont get down to below zero very often unless you are snow camping. We are not ultralight so happy to compromise between price, weight and function. We are also preparing to be in London during winter, so hopefully we could use it there as well. Our layering system at the moment is icebreaker bodyfit200 base layer, then Icebreaker mid layer 260, windstopper softshell and hardshell if needed.

Any suggestions? We were thinking along the lines of Mountain Hardwear Subzero and Downtown, Marmot Zeus Jacket as examples.

Thank you

Eric
