Could anybody recommend me a good down hoody that would work for spring/summer/fall for general mountaineering in the cascades/rockies, and work for something like Rainier in the summer. Basically just a warm jacket for stops/breaks.
I've been looking at the Patagonia Down Hoody and Fitz Roy but i'm unsure of how much warmth I'll really need.
I want to get the lightest that I can get away with, but not suffer in. This would be layered on top of a lightweight baselayer, a light softshell, and possibly a hardshell.
I'm guessing Montbell, Western Mountaineering, Nunatak, or Feathered Friends would get me something great, but i'm trying to stay away from those because of the deals that I can get on Patagonia, Mountain Hardwear, TNF, and so on.
Any recommendations from the big name brands?
EDIT: Also just checked out the Arc'teryx Atom SV, any thoughts?
