Zebra H52
Well I just pre-ordered a Zebralight H52Fw. Price + a set of Eneloops and a charger should be not much over $100. There was no High-CRI option, but if one becomes available I may get another one.

iclo calculations
Hi Richard, I'm wondering how you're extrapolating these values. Seems that 1000 FP down should be 25% warmer per weight than 800 FP down. 5.56 iclo seems pretty low for this jacket give...

Aha!
I knew there must be more options out there that I hadn't seen yet. Haglofs I know of but haven't seen their down range, and Bergans is new to me. They both seem awesome. The Magi II has sy...

Hi Rick, Yes I almost couldn't believe the warmth to weight ratio of the Gasherbrum (almost 50/50). ME also make a jacket called the K7 with 330g of fill and their "Drilite" outer ...

Re: Re: Lightest Expedition/Very Cold Weather jacket?
"So you want over 300 but less than 400 grams of fill and weigh less than 27.5 ounces. Why would something with only 33% more of the minimum of what you want be too much? Plus at that weig...

Re: take a look at the feathered friends volant
Thanks, Richard. My main concern with the Volant is that is it quite a short cut and I have a long torso. Ideally I'd like something that covers my butt. The Frontpoint is super nice but again ...
