FS: MontBell Ultralight Down Inner Jacket
This is the original model from a few years ago with diamond baffling, snaps, and no hand warmer pockets. It weighs 8.1oz on my digital scale (size L). (The current model claims to be only 6.9oz ...

FS: Nunatak Down Balaclava

17oz for bug liner
Glenn, I notice that ID list the new bug liner as being a whopping 17oz--more than the Silshelter itself. Don't you think the total weight is too high when compared with say a Virga, or a GG Spinn...
