Hi, I contacted a Canadian manufacturing company, Taiga Works about some of their down gear.
Specifically I asked them about their Mount Blanc Jacket:
They claim that their jacket has 16.5 oz of 825 down in a goretex shell, all weighing about 30 oz and costing less than $300
Also, their Ellesmere parka claims a weight of 38 oz, with over 20 oz of 700 fill in a goretex shell. Wouldn't that make this parka comparable to the FF rock+ice?
If correct, these seem almost difficult to believe.
Anybody with experience with their gear? If it is indeed as good as it sounds I'd like to order it, but with shipping costs and a real dearth of reviews I'm reluctant.
