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.

Meh, poor fit and questionable construction! I am 5'11", 165 lbs. I wear a 32-32 pant. I bought the medium. I wore these for a couple hours with a soft shell and a heavy baselayer underneath. Two things happened 1) the seam tape ripped at the bottom of the zipper. 2) The crotch is cut really high and made for quite the uncomfortable situation. I was not abusing these pants. I was hunting and wore them to keep dry. All I did was walk around for 4-5 hours. They were also a little short. I don't feel like these bibs can accommodate layering. I am sending them back.
