I have The North Face Diez 900. But it is a bit too puffy to wear over a rain jacket. Is Montbell less puffy? And how about warmth vs the Diez? I dont want to get too similar of a jacket.

Just to confirm, you wear it OVER your rain jacket?

The Ex Light is less bulky and not as warm as the Diez. They aren't as dissimilar as that makes them sound. The MontBell is about as light as down jackets get, but the Diez isn't much heavier. I would suggest complimenting the MontBell with something heavier than the Diez.
