Recent Down Insulated Jacket Reviews

Black Diamond Men's Cold Forge Down Hoody

rated 4.5 of 5 stars My everyday puffy. I bought a medium almost 5 years ago now, and couldn't be more happy for this acquisition. This jacket is a down/synthetic blend (70% down, 30% polyester), and it goes down nearly mid thigh like a short trench coat. I'm 6 ft and 155 pounds. It has 5 pockets—1 chest, 2 hand, and 2 large inside pockets. Comes with a bag to store, which I never used. I got the red, and it still looks great (red color has a tendency to blacken at the wrist, but not this one). I almost went back… Full review

The North Face McMurdo Parka II

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Love this parka for its length and camo pattern. I bought the McMurdo II for two specific reasons: It is a long down parka. Not many down parkas around in this length. Camo was a critical need (wildlife photographer and camo helps significantly getting closer for the image). I paid right at $350 AFTER reading the reviews here, and felt like others that it needed some mods. But I used the jacket daily at Bosque del Apache imaging cranes and geese 4-6 hours each day in temps 16-18°F and never felt… Full review

Live Out There Men's Assiniboine Down Hooded Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Well worth the plunge for a puffy Jacket. I resisted the urge to go puffy, but the introduction price and a one-time life member discount made me cave.  Took the jacket to our Jasper National Park in Canada during mid summer. I did not expect to wear it, but I did every morning in the crisp mountain air. Extremely lightweight and compressible, makes a nice luxury item, but also can be the only warm item for layering without the expense of too much weight or volume. The product is designed with… Full review

MontBell EX Light Down Anorak

rated 4 of 5 stars This ultra-lightweight down jacket is a great mid-layer for backpacking and thru-hiking, filling the niche of a three-season camp “puffy”. It should be thought of more like a sweater or hooded sweatshirt rather than a jacket, as it trades off many typical jacket features for its svelte weight and compressibility. Specs Weight: 5.25 oz in a size XS (my measurement) Gender: Men’s (or unisex, because there is no women’s version) Insulation: 900 fill power down (2.3 oz of fill) Fabric: 7 denier… Full review

The North Face Men's McMurdo Parka

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Not waterproof. Takes hours to dry as fabric absorbs water. Heavy. Dreadful coat. After half an hour in mild drizzle the rain comes through all the seams. It is not waterproof, not even shower proof. Coat is warm but is excessively heavy. As the "nylon" outer lets the rain into the fabric it takes hours to dry, especially when the inside is as wet as the outside. Biggest purchase mistake I ever made. DO NOT BUY if you intend to wear it out of doors. Full review

GooseFeet Custom Down Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Goosefeet Gear makes the lightest warmth-to-weight down jacket on the planet, period. All jackets are customized for each client, based on multiple body measurements and customer preferences for amount of fill, fill power, colors, and specific features. Quality is top-notch. This is a review of the customizable Goosefeet Gear ultralight down jacket. Goosefeet Gear (GFG) is a cottage shop located in Georgia that makes high-end, ultralight down apparel, owned and operated by Ben Smith. I am not affiliated… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Men's StretchDown Plus Hooded Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars So stoked on the SD jacket that I bought one of this hooded SD. Mountain Hardwear rocks! After buying a men's small non-hooded SD jacket I liked it so much that I bought the hooded one for those really cold, humid winter winds we have in the NW. I'm 5/8 at 135. My chest is 37.5" and 30" waist with an athletic build. The small is a perfect fit in all of my MH wear; this being no exception. Regarding the fit though, the non-hooded jacket is a snug fit on the forearms and torso, so great to wear with… Full review

Outdoor Research Men's Transcendent Down Hoody

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Not the lightest, not the warmest, but thoughtful features and the kind of durability that makes this a great hiking/backpacking companion for a great price. At the time of this writing we're just heading in to summer—THE best time of year to start shopping for a new down puffy. The sales are out there if you don't absolutely need the latest colors. If you're searching, and want a great performer without breaking the bank, the OR Transcendent Hoody is definitely one to take a look at. If you know… Full review

Gerry Sweater Down Jacket

rated 3 of 5 stars Since I've been referenced in some of the comments, I guess it's incumbent that I weigh in a bit. I researched and wrote the book "GERRY: TO LIVE IN THE MOUNTAINS" back in 2008 and with an update in 2011 after Gerry Cunningham passed away. As the researcher and writer of the GERRY book, my chief sources were Gerry himself, his daughter, and one of his sons (Pete). I also had much input from other of Gerry's peers in the Boulder, Colorado, area where he lived and worked, up until he got absorbed… Full review
