Euro rated 750 fill-power is approximately equivalent to US 800-850 fill power. This jacket has exceptional down. Granted, 900 down is available, but it is prohibitively expensive relative to the negligible benefit you get over 850 down. I disagree with Rambo that 900 wouldn?t make sense for a jacket in this category; Patagonia makes 1000 fill-power jacket in the same genre. You just pay an arm and a leg for the novelty. 900 fill isn?t just for high altitude mountaineering; it is for every possible temperature range that would require insulation. Also, again disagreeing with Rambo, all of the so called expedition companies he listed do not have 900 fill-power expedition style jackets. Lastly, 900 fill is exactly the opposite of what Rambo suggests; it IS light, compressible, and packable. Actually, it is the best at all of those things. That?s why it is appealing. Bottom line: You get great down in this jacket. If it has enough fill weight (in contrast to fill-power) for the temperature range you expect to encounter, you would be making a great choice.
