Price Paid: $99.99
Warm, lightweight jacket worth the price (especially if you can get it at a discount). However, the shell is made of pretty thin material and is prone to tearing, so care must be taken when wearing this jacket off-trail.
- Nice hood
- Thin outer shell
I wore it recently on a back-country snowshoeing trip and near the end of the hike snagged the coat on a branch, tearing a two-inch long hole in the shoulder. Luckily, I patched it soon afterwards, but realized this jacket is better suited for wearing around town (probably what it was designed for anyways) or on light hikes than in the backcountry.
I would recommend it overall though.
Here's what other sites are saying:
REI Davos down jacket is nature's most efficient insulator and provides extreme warmth. The Davos utilizes sleeping bag baffle technology. Double-ripstop nylon outer face, with reinforcements in high-wear areas, resists abrasion, wind and rain; it's windproof to 50 mph and has a Durable Water Repellent finish. Premium 700-fill-power down delivers an unsurpassed warmth-to-weight ratio; it's one of the lightest, warmest and most compressible insulations available. Reduced fill on sides eases movement. Down-per-baffle calibration, an REI sleeping-bag innovation, maximizes thermal efficiency by eliminating cold spots. Zip-off, insulated and ergonomically designed hood wraps around lower face for extra warmth; side and back adjustments provide a close fit and good peripheral visibility. Davos's carved face wrap snaps cleanly out of your way when it's not needed. Stormflap behind front zipper protects you from wind penetration. Hem drawcord and inner fleece cuffs seal in warmth. Includes zippered hand pockets and an interior pocket with a cord port.
