The down vest is $99 and the down jacket is $119. I'm not sure what the regular price (everything is always 50% off) but not a bad price for the weight either way. http://www.golite.com/BigScore.aspx
The email states:Jacket $119.99 ($139.99 after August 14th)Vest $99.99 ($114.99 after August 14th)
That jacket looks really similar to the Mountain Hardware Ghost Whisperer, in fact, it's an ounce lighter!If it's comparable, that seems like a really good deal.
Thanks for the information Tommy. I received the sale notification off of Facebook and they did not indicate the regular price there.
Especially with their free shipping offer:"If your order meets or exceeds $100 before tax, you'll receive FREE UPS ground shipping"
I received a catalog in the mail yesterday. The Selkirk vest was priced at $119.99. The colors appeared much "shinier" in the catalog. Almost Uniqlo-ish.
Just got a jacket in today in XL. I usually wear an XL in most lines of outdoor clothing and it fits well. Weight is 7.5oz with the hang tags attached. My only caveat is that when the jacket is held up to the light, a spot about as big as my fist is visible that is absent down. There are also fairly large gaps along all the seams of the jacket. I am not sure if the down is supposed to migrate and "settle" after wearing. My two cents.edited to reflect purchase of jacket
