Cozy down feathers aren't confused, but they are baffled.
Zip up The North Face Women's Prism Optimus Jacket and feel the transformation from cold and cramped to comfortable, mobile muscles warmed-up and ready for alpine action. Lofty 700-fill down in the body boosts heat while synthetic insulation in the vulnerable-to-weather shoulders and sleeves stays warm even when wet. And baffled construction distributes evenly the goose-down wealth to eliminate cold spots, and welded seams prevent needle holes that can let cold sneak in. The hood is fully baffled, because a frozen brain can't think; in a manner, it's baffled so you're not.

This is so cozy and warm while still being packable and pretty light--it has saved me many a time, and my companions from me getting grumpy from being cold. :) Personally I think a hood is a necessity on any down layer (or almost any layer, really), as it's the best way to get warm in a hurry.
