If it's really as waterproof as advertised, plus the extra fill power (1000), this is kind of exciting. It will be even more exciting when it's available to other makers. Would love to see a cottage company use this in a 9oz hooded sweater. Waterproof down skaha plus? And sleeping bags could no doubt benefit!
Sucks, 'cause I'm in the market to lighten my gear, and would hate to drop money on a down jacket, just to have this be available 5 years later... then again, it might be 5 years, before I can get permission to make any new purchases anyway.
