Nice review Will. Is there a version with a hood? I find that there is significant warmth benefits for very little weight increase.

Nice to see a tall guy option on the market. Nothing worse than a belly shirt fit on an insulating layer. I do wish that the waist band was a draw cord vs. the stretchy elastic on these jackets. It just feels nicer to have the snuggest fit around the waist one can get. As for lack of a hood, I wonder if anyone has considered the old hood in the collar design. Sure, it wouldn't be insulated, but you could wear beanie/balaclava with it. I suppose the weight of zipper, fasteners, etc. might offset benefits, plus those hoods always look pretty flimsy. Looking forward to the rest of this series Will. Thanks for another gear review.

do we have any actual measured numbers for the warmth of the MB EX vs. the Halo?

funny that a jacket with twice the fill would seem less warm ....
