Sierra Designs DriDown Tov
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $250
Light, water-resistant, and overall durable down jacket. I was please with the warmth and comfort of the jacket. There were many mornings it was in the single digits and I was fine walking to class with a t-shirt and this jacket.
- The down clumps when washes and dries
- Hood needs to be more fitted
Overall a fantastic jacket! Like I mentioned before I walked to class when it was in the single digits with just a t-shirt underneath.
This being my first down jacket I was worried about its durability and ability to hold warmth, and overall I am pleased. The lining of the sleeve where it meets the cuff unfortunately has started to come undone but it's just a matter of sending it back in and Sierra Designs will fix it no problem.
My only other gripe is when I washed it, the down clumps together in the arm and won't separate back out, which left me with "cold" spots the next few times I wore it.

The Sierra Designs DriDown Tov jacket offers the warmth of a traditional puffy down jacket but with new DriDown insulation that stays lofted, dry and warm even if the down contacts dampness. Insulated with 600-fill-power DriDown hydrophobic down insulation, the Tov outperforms standard down by taking the chill out of the coldest, dampest days. Regular down is treated with a molecular-level polymer to create a hydrophobic finish on each individual down plume. DriDown stays dry longer, lofts better and dries faster than regular down to keep you warmer in any environment. Additionally, DriDown keeps rain, sweat or melting snow from soaking in while allowing internal moisture to easily escape. Baffle construction keeps the down from migrating, eliminating cold spots; hung lining enhances warmth. Fitted, adjustable elasticized hood and elasticized cuffs with thumbholes seal in warmth. Stormflap behind the full-length front zipper keeps breezes out; chin guard protects sensitve skin. Jacket has 2 zip hand pockets; includes1 interior zip pocket and a mesh drop-in pocket. Sierra Designs DriDown Tov jacket comes with a stuff sack for easy packing.
