Recent Down Insulated Jacket Reviews

Mountain Equipment Vega Jacket

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Decent alpine ascending jacket, but not very warm when sitting in camp. This is my first serious down jacket and I have no experience prior to that. I'm expecting a very warm jacket and I feel it's kind of thin when I receive it in mail. The fit is snug on me. I'm 5'6" and 140 lbs; size small is about the right size for me. Sleeve length is a bit long but the velcro cuffs work well. The hood is huge and it's helmet compatible, I just wish it's smaller. Total windproof and you feel full protection… Full review

Sorel Caribou Parka

rated 5 of 5 stars It’s a beautiful warm coat that stands out from other parkas. People always comment on how nice the coat is. I have worn it when the temperature was 30 degrees beneath freezing and windy and felt very comfortable in this coat. It does run large, but I believe the quality and warmth outweigh the bulky size. It’s not my everyday coat, but is my wear when it’s REALLY cold coat! If you are lucky enough to find one you better snatch it up!! Owning this coat makes me want to travel to a colder climate… Full review

Peak Performance Frost Down Long Hooded Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars This long winter jacket combines duck down insulation to keep you feeling snug inside. Even with its coziness, however it's made big for a medium size. I bought this jacket for alpine skiing a few years back, because we had a cold winter and I wanted to acquire a warmer jacket. So I pick up this one because it was long enough to cover my lower back. It was also on sale at 70% off, probably because of the flash lime colors! I usually wear a base layer and a polar under, and when it get really cold… Full review

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
