GoLite Cumulus Down Jacket
It is a fine jacket. I recall reading a review that…
Fabric: ?, but I think it has a DWR finish
Fill: 800 fill down
Price Paid: I got a good deal!
It is a fine jacket. I recall reading a review that recommended paring down the weight even further (it is only 14 ounces for a large!), but I would go the other way. I would rather have an ounce or two more of down. That is my only complaint. It is close to a five star garment, but I have never found any piece of gear which is perfect so it is a hard to give a top grade. I have not taken it into the field yet. It is still very nice to wear gear that is light even in town. I had not expected that.
Here's what other sites are saying:
The 14-ounce GoLite Men's Cumulus Down Jacket has become a top pick among backcountry skiers, winter hikers, and ice climbers concerned with weight. High-loft, 800-fill down insulation provides excellent warmth in cold winter conditions. The Cumulus Down Jacket compresses to about the size of a softball, so it hardly takes up any space when it rides in your pack. Slip on this GoLite Down jacket when the temperatures drop, or when you need to settle in for a long belay.
