Using the The RateSkiGear.Com 100 Point Rating Systemâ¢, this Patagonia Down Sweater scores 91 out of 100 Possible Points.
It's the perfect layering piece for those brutally cold days. Actually, you can reduce the numbers of layers due to high loft to weight ratio. The high fill-power of the down makes this unit highly compressable, but it has the loft to keep me from freezing to the bone.
Alone, this is a great "kick-around" piece on the street or in camp.
Dislikes: No hand warmer pockets, however, if your are wearing this under a shell it makes no differance. Very fragile fabric. Tears easily. Remember however, that the fabrics fragility is directly related to its weight, so carry some rip-tape and live with it!
Backcountry.Com's price is very good. I've looked around and most retailers no longer have this piece in stock. BUY IT!
