EX Light Down Anorak

rated 5 of 5 stars Super light at only 180g for a men's large. With 900 FP down it is also very warm. Very packable, compresses to the size of a softball. Gives me the opportunity to leave much heavier mid layers at home. Fit and comfort are great, half zipper allows easy putting on and taking off. Elastic on cuffs and drawstring on the waist keeps the cold drafts out. There is no drawstring on the hood, but it is well fitting and keeps the warmth in. A bit pricey, but aren't all lightweight packable down jackets? Full review

Thermawrap Pro Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A well constructed, all-around jacket for layering under a hardshell or wearing standalone. Eliminates having to worry about changing and wet conditions. My Thermawrap Pro hooded jacket is a relatively lightweight and warm jacket when worn by itself or layered under a shell. Montbell's Exceloft holds its loft even after being repeatedly stuffed into a compression sack. I haven't experienced cold spots. In fickle Midwest winters, the Thermawrap Pro has a dual personality... keeping me warm in deep,… Full review

EX Light Down Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great for summer backpacking in Sierras, Rockies, Cascades. Works well as lightweight warmth on backcountry ski days. I have primarily used the jacket on backpacking trips — on chilly nights in the summer above 10,000 ft. and most every night in late September to October above 10,000 ft. So lightweight and compactable, hardly know it is in the pack. Far better than carrying a heavier down jacket, vest, heavy polypro. Oh, and it was plenty warm too. I have spent many a night at 15 - 20 degrees… Full review

Alpine Cruiser 2000

rated 5 of 5 stars Exceptionally light and fast alpine boots. The Japanese know a lot about snow, and it shows in these boots. These are technical mixed-climbing boots. You could wear them almost anywhere. These are beautiful boots resulting from a complete chance purchase. We had a family holiday booked and paid to the snow — but there was almost no snow. Anticipating a week of snow / slush / bush-walking in lieu I made a last minute decision to invest in a good pair of boots. I walked into the Mont-bell Australian… Full review

Plasma 1000 Down Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Extremely lightweight down jacket that's warm with a few compromises. Brent provided a great in-depth review. I thought I'd add a second opinion. I had been eyeballing this jacket for not only casual use, but also for backpacking. As it's my first and only down jacket, I went for ultra-lightweight for backpacking. I asked for it for Christmas and Santa was good to me. I'm 5'10"/160 lbs and purchased a large version directly from Montbell. Weight was one of my most important factors and this was… Full review
