Just got my Daybreak jacket from FF. Very, Very nice.

Weigh's in at 241grams (Medium) + the 10g FF stuff sack it goes in.

As an up-trade from my Montbell UL inner I am very happy. The fit in medium is much better that the MB which was always just a tad tight on me. (MB Large is a tad big.....)
Loft is very nice and around 3/4", the down pockets/sections are larger than the MB UL inner which allows a little more loft. The extra down (3.1oz of 850+fill) is noticed and I'm guessing this will be a warmer jacket over the UL inner.
Fabric feels great and the blue is very nice (Will post some pic's tonight if I get a chance)

Zippers feel a little better than the MB one's and there is a light felt/soft feeling draft flap behind the main front zipper.

The tag says 900 fill down but the website says 850+ fill ???

All I have to do is hem the neck in a little so it fits right, You'd need an "Arnie" neck to fill this one out......
