am looking for a good belay jacket while ice climbing. consider:
1. montbell frostline
2. OR maestro
3. OR incandescent
need to be:
1. warm in temps <20F
2. light weight, compressible/packable in small bullet bag while multipitch ice climbing
any suggestions on best of the above for this use?

they all have some good warmth. the montbell is the heaviest and is made with the thickest material. my only experiences with insulated montbell jackets have involved down coming out. i would go with the incandescent.
