Eddie Bauer/First Ascent - extra 20% off plus f/s - 9oz 800fp down vest $71! on 10/27/2011 09:15:09 MDT Print View

Use coupon code BHGNOV for an extra 20% off plus free shipping. Stacks with current down sale prices - I'm pretty sure the down sale ends today, not sure about the coupon. With coupon the Downlight vest is $71 before tax, Downlight sweater is $111 before tax.

Sale Still On - Downlight Sweater compared to Cabela's Superlight 750 Down Jacket on 11/02/2011 11:21:35 MDT Print View

Even with the extra 20% off the Cabela's is $40 cheaper. Just looking for a layering piece and wondering if there is a big difference.

Thoughts?

Re: Cabela's Superlight 750 Down Jacket on 11/02/2011 11:47:49 MDT Print View

I recently purchased the Cabela's Superlight 750 Down Jacket, size medium regular, color green on sale for $54.99, regular $130.

On my scale, the jacket weighs 18.4 oz. and, according to customer service, the jacket contains about ~6.5 ounces of down.

So far I like the jacket. The color is lovely, the fit is decent, the material is durable enough that I can wear it around town and in the woods, and it will keep me warm during the winter. I only wish it was equipped with a hood and less pockets. But for the price, versatility, and warmth... it works for me =)

Cabellas Jacket on 11/03/2011 10:39:50 MDT Print View

Not to derail the thread - but how did that jacket fit?

What size did you get that you measured it at 18.5 oz? Cabellas customer service said they are 21oz.

I seem to be in between a small and medium on their chart. There is no local store and online returns are such a hassle.

Re: Cabela's on 11/03/2011 12:13:59 MDT Print View

Eric, my men's size medium regular weighs 18.4 oz. My chest measurement is about 39 inches.

Overall, I am OK with the way the jacket fits me. I can wear a base-layer and full-zip hooded fleece underneath it without feeling like a stuffed sausage.

My recommendations for improving the jacket:

1.) make the arms an inch longer
2.) add an optional hood
3.) narrow the width a little
4.) remove some pockets
5.) narrower wrist cuffs

But, like I said, for the price, versatility, and warmth, I am happy with it. Obviously, the amount of clothing you plan on wearing underneath your jacket will help determine whether to choose a small or medium. When in doubt, you could order both sizes and return the one you don't want. Ask Cabela's if they will pay for return shipping.
