Looking to buy a down vest for summer insulation, and wearing around town. I own a Patagonia down hoody, which I like but is too warm for my general Australian needs (bought for northern hemisphere winter use...).
My first instinct was the patagucci vest, but I can't find it at a decent price right now (less than $150 in M) and it's really not that light.
Mont Bell seems good on price and weight. My biggest concern would be that the fabric might be a bit fragile for regular wear in the city? Also it is a bit technical looking a shiny for that use... but that's a secondary concern.
Can people vouch for the MB being acceptably durable (I'm not hard on my clothes)?
Also, how is the sizing? I'm a medium for the patagonia, but couldn't get away with a much shorter body due to being tall...
Or any other recommendations...?
