RAB, Westcomb
+1 for RAB and Westcomb. I'd personally wait for a neoshell from either of these brands. The fit should be just what you are looking for.

Montbell Extremely Light Down Jacket
MB just barely missed the mark w/this one. What is nearly a perfect rendition of the UL jacket, is missing some sort of waist hem retention. Whether it is an UL drawcord hem or elastic (like on the ...
