So if somones parka gets a hole in it Patagonia will put normal down back in as they have no encapsil down left.

Oh, they can't as they cannot access the baffle.

Dri Down videos on 03/19/2013 22:17:32 MDT Print View

They not Encapsil, and they are only crudely scientific, but some instructive videos from ProLite gear. Kudos to them for going the extra mile to look at the benefits of treated down.

"SOLD for $862"

I thought that was a BIN. Patagonia must be jealous :)

I am glad the Encapsil Jacket sold out as if I purchased one my wife would shoot me, she is just getting over me purchasing a McHale pack.

She can't get mad if she doesn't know.

Every man should have a source of WDK money.

Feedback? on 09/17/2013 15:27:21 MDT Print View

So did anyone use one in the mountains yet? Besides all the back and forth about ethics, let's get down to the jacket... did it perform? How warm was it in comparison to others? How did it handle sweat and use? How durable was it? Has anyone sent one back to Patagonia to be cleaned after use? I'm more interested in the performance of the jacket after it got introduced to the market. Seeing that they just re-released it for this season, it would make sense to do a follow up/review, no?
