No prob, Jamie. You're kind of right--higher down fill number means better insulation, because it's fluffier. But the amount of down, by weight, is a good way to compare items of similar fill power. There are other factors that will impact warmth--like how it is quilted, baffle design, etc.

I've seen a lot of this on Backcountry lately--an ad gives a price (OK, maybe "starting at") but in reality that price only applies to a small portion of the selection--like the Teal XXL at $130 and the other 30 size/color options at $200. I think this is deceitful and, for me, erodes my trust in Backcountry.com.
