Sale on select MontBell items. Just received a UL down inner jacket for $121 out the door. BTW, I love this jacket so far.

I wear my inner jacket every day! Does anyone own both the inner jacket and the UL wind parka? Should the same size wind parka fit over the inner jacket, or should I size up? The size Large inner jacket fits me perfectly.

Wind Jacket on 01/06/2011 08:10:48 MST Print View

I had a down innner last fall and purchased a wind jacket in the same size, but it was too small. I would definitely size up if I were you.

I snagged a Ex Light Down Inner Jacket for $133. I'm curious - why did you guys purchase the UL instead of the Ex Lt for only a few dollars more?

The prices returned to normal right before my very eyes. Wish I'd seen this earlier!

pockets (aka hand warmers) on 01/06/2011 12:00:11 MST Print View

Trust me, I've given it a lot of thought, but at the end, I needed a place to put my giftcards on the way to Starbucks.

Kidding aside, yeah, I sacrificed the difference in weight for the pockets for when the jacket is worn as an outside layer. Also, just FYI, frontcountry's website states the UL inner with a standard DWR finish - the one I received has the DWR finish with MontBell's Polkatex, which claims to hold it's "DWR-ness" through 100 washes. I'll let you guys know in about 50 years if this holds true.
