More interested in something that will pack down to minimal space in a pack/lightweight/warm enough to walk around in the snow for a while/durable enough to withstand some backpack wear and hiking. Also, if it fits well enough to make me not look like the Michelin Man, and comes in blue or black, that is a bonus.
