650 Down Jacket $30 on 12/17/2012 08:43:52 MST Print View

That's right a 650 fill goose down for $30. JCPENNEY just put these on clearance. I picked one up this morning. 10.7 oz on my scale including the "supplied" stuff sack.

My store had an assortment of colors: Navy, lime green, black, red, orange, silver. You can pick these up online too. With "FREE Shipping." No minimum requirred.

I do not work for JCPENNEY, check my posts. Just trying to do my bit.

Oh with the way it fits. You might want to go next size up. I wear an xl but had to buy an xxl. Just my opinion.

Happy Holidays.

They run small on 12/17/2012 14:24:39 MST Print View

They run small for sizing. I am a regular large, but the large tall fits me fine. The sleeve length on the large regular is too short. The body fit is snug too, but very good value for the money. The large/tall was $8.00 more than the regular. I do not know if they still have them.

Tight in the chest. on 12/17/2012 18:07:57 MST Print View

I found one that my mom got for me for christmas! So i found the jacket in a bag in my living room, and just had to take a peak, and that peak turned to me trying it on, and putting my backpack on, and walking around my house for a little while. Anyway i found that the jacket is fairly roomy in the body, and tight in the chest when you pull your arms back. Now i am by no means a big guy ( i only weigh like 135) but the medium was tight for me in the chest, but roomy around the waist. So if you don't mind the extra bulk around the waist, but want more mobility size up. You can allways get a tailor to adjust the jacket too i guess. But its only 30 bucks. Get 2!!!

Here is a vid. of the jacket, might give you guys a better idea.

JC Penny "Puffy" on 12/18/2012 21:51:18 MST Print View

I found the sizing similar in that the torso felt large and the shoulder area tight. At 6' and 200#'s I found I was between sizes L and XL. I took a look at the big and tall and found the BT Large to be the right fit for me. It was only $28. There is no way to cinch the bottom without sewing.

Like most have stated, I also tried one on and found that they are tight in the shoulder/chest area. I normaly wear a large, but had to go to a xxl to get the chest/shoulders to fit good. I think I would probably go to a B&T large if I was going to buy one. I'm 5'9" and 175 lbs

650 Down Jacket $30 on 12/19/2012 12:34:15 MST Print View

Just picked up two for $28.00 each! Normally, I wear an xxl and had to size up to the 4XL. I am 6'2" and 225 lbs. with "ape arms" I plan on adding a bungie to cinch the waist hem. For the price, they are a screaming steal. Warmer than my Stoic Hadron jacket and the 4xl is only 10 ounces!

Picked up a Small one for my son on 12/19/2012 14:17:54 MST Print View

Picked up a size small for my son earlier this week. Even for my son it was a bit tight around the shoulders. The small came in at 8.9oz without the stuff sack and 9.4 with.

Comparable down jacket for women? on 12/20/2012 22:31:03 MST Print View

This jacket would be perfect for my fiancée, however she is petite. I couldn't find a comparable product for women. The closest (only based on images) is this:

The description says it has "faux down"...which is? Anyone else have luck finding a light women's down jacket for similar pricing?

I can't remember if I checked that one in particular, but the women's down garments were not as light as the men's.

This jacket appears on the adds on the right hand side of the previously posted jacket. Don't know many details but it says ultralight so it must be true, right?|dept20000013|cat100250094|RICHREL&grView=&eventRootCatId=&currentTabCatId=&regId=

jcp down jacket on 12/23/2012 20:47:12 MST Print View

Just grabbed one. My size large was actually only $20 in store, but I did notice the XL's were $28. Arms are pretty short, which is perfect for me!

jcp down jacket on 12/23/2012 22:45:31 MST Print View

My son went to his local JCP and the jackets were marked down to $20.00 the sales clerk said they just marked them down from $30.00 to $20.00 this morning. I just bought mine last night at $30.00 What's funny is the big and tall were $2.00 cheaper, go figure, doesn't it take more material to make a big and tall jacket?

I couldn't pass at $20. The fit of the piece is pretty awful, but whatever...

Re: Re: jcp down jacket on 12/28/2012 22:43:45 MST Print View

I picked one up tonight. I bought in online and had it shipped to a local store. I went up a size and I'm glad I did. An XXL is 11.4oz with the stuff sack, measures 25" across the armpits, 30" from the base of the collar to the tail and 38" from the center of the collar to the cuff. The arms seem short with my arms held out forward, but long with me arms held at my sides. Given the comments on fit, I think there is something funny with the cut around the shoulders.

The zipper is weak and the cuff openings are a little big. The stuff sack is decent and has room for a beanie and some liner gloves. I would relegate it to summer hikes where rain isn't expected and you want something for cool evenings and mornings, or day hiking CYA insulation.

It won't last like a $200 puffy, but it's passable for $30. Lightweight insulation is one of the most expensive items on a gear list and this is better than being cold--- or staying home :)

Came, saw, passed... on 01/03/2013 03:08:28 MST Print View

I was driving by a JCP last night and remembered this thread. I swerved in to see what they had. There were several to choose from, so I tried a few on. Normally a large, the closest I came to comfortable was in an XL... but only if I didn't try to raise my arms. The cut was just weird on me. If I stood with my arms down I was okay, but if I moved, not so much.

The ironic part is that there was, in fact, a female equivalent (same design with a more feminine cut) of the jacket in the store by me. My wife had tried on several of the other ladies down jackets before I spotted a few of the female-version-of-the-mens hanging out on a rack to the side. She tried one on and it was a match made in Heaven... nothing like all the other ladies down jackets on display. It rang up at only $20, too.

So I go in for a puffy and my wife comes out with one. Guess I can live with that. :) Maybe, when SHE goes in one day to buy a new car......

JCP Puffer Vest on 01/08/2013 07:31:07 MST Print View

I picked up the black puffer vest at JCP today only $20. Says its 650 fill. Going to try it soon to check its warmth. Havent weighed it yet but it stuffs down to about the size of a softball which is a great space saver.

Re: Re: Re: jcp down jacket on 01/08/2013 10:35:54 MST Print View

How would this jacket perform if layered correctly? I have a synthetic OR jacket that weighs a few oz. more and takes me down to the mid 20's F just fine (when layered). The price is awesome! Just wondering if it's worthwhile considering I already have a quality insulating layer that isn't much heavier and stuffs down really well.
