Re: Best 0 Bag for the Money?
If money is more important than weight, consider a synthetic bag. MontBell has a synthetic 0F bag for under $200, at 4.5 pounds, though.

Re: Thanks
Just checked the EB store, they did have a few jackets left, and yes, the interior pockets look like they would hold a liter water bottle.

If it helps, I can probably swing by the local EB store next week and check out the parka.
