Re: Re: Re: Down jackets
@Sean Depends on how it's done. If the large baffles are filled properly, there shouldn't be much need for down control generally. Look at a Rab Neutrino...big bafffles but well stuffed....

Re: Marmot Lithium 0 sale
10% off on top if you use Active Junky brings it almost to $350. If I didn't have a $44 REI garage sale special I'd be pretty tempted myself!

Re: Re: First Light purchase—sleeping bag/quilt or shelter?

Re: Price
Dryloft always have a steep premium. You could probably reasonably ask for $200 on geartrade or ebay. Given the quality of down, the like new state, and the weather resistant fabric "feature.&...
