Hard to believe, but mine in a Large/Tall came in at 21 ounces. Must be lined with lead.

Ha! My $20 Cabelas jacket only weighs 17oz in size M! It's quite warm, too. Kept me warm ~20F the other night.

A little lighter even on 03/01/2011 21:07:54 MST Print View

I have the vest in a size L and it weighs 11.2 oz on my postal scale. The size L jacket is in the 20 oz ballpark.

Hey, they have medium tall on 03/02/2011 11:27:55 MST Print View

I went ahead and picked up a medium tall jacket. At $50 it's a pretty safe gamble, even if it's "superlight" only in name. The first ascent downlight jackets aren't available in medium tall anymore, so hopefully this Cabela's jacket will do.

Yikes, 12 ounces for a medium vest. Thanks for the warning.
