I recently bought one and i'm very happy with it. I had it on up above the tree line on Mt. Washington in -4F with 50-75mph winds and I was perfectly warm. Perfect for wrapping up in when the cold weather activity stops.

EMS Ice Down Jacket $80 -- check stores. on 01/30/2013 12:54:39 MST Print View

This is an excellent deal for a very warm jacket.
EMS online has limited sizes, but local stores may have more. The Acton, Mass. store had most sizes in stock as of last wednesday (Jan 23). Call your local store and ask them to see which stores have your size in stock.

It seems to have more loft than the Rab Neutrino Endurance I looked at there and the catalog weight is only 2 oz more.
