How would the warmth of this jacket compare to the Nitrous with 800 fill down? is the 120g of thermic micro comparable to what down fill rating?

It's kind of hard to compare warmth, because everyone's idea of being "warm" is different. I have the Nitrous, and I use it as a midlayer when it gets super cold, and will use it down into the 30's otherwise.

It's quite a bit warmer man, especially with the hood. I have both and I like the synthetic compressor much better. The nitrous has a poor cuff closure, and it's useless when wet. Guess it depends on what your doing, but for ice and alpine climbing, go with the compressor
