A+++. I bought this jacket at a local dealer during a summer sale. Paying only $160 for it I feel like I got a steal.
I've had many down jackets but none with this level of protection. The full jacket, neck, and hood is packed with down. I'm an avid snowshoer and winter hiker and this coat keeps me warm and dry. I have had trouble in the past staying out in the cold for long periods of time from losing too much heat from my neck and head. This jacket's down filled collar and hood completely eliminate that problem. Throwing a thin fleece hat and a good baselayer underneath is vital to reap full benefits.
I would recommend this coat to anyone who is going to be in severely cold, windy weather and wants to wear as few layers as possible. A down jacket that is not windproof does absolutely nothing if it is below zero wind!!!!
I also feel that the jacket is cut extremely well and I like the way it looks!

Even single-digit days in zones such as Jackson, Silverton and Banff are no match for the lofted warmth of the Cloudveil Down Patrol Jacket. 650-fill, 90-plus-purity stuffing retains heat longer, while Gore-Tex Windstopper shell fabric feels soft and mobile when lapping run after run. Mesh-lined pit vents dump heat, a pow skirt zips out for trips to town and an internal pocket stashes wallets or keys. The long cut prevents updrafts on cold, smoky days.
