    The real reason your jackets/vests are experiencing this is this. I will say that a majority of Down filled garments are just partially composed of a fluffy Down that we think our garment is entirely made of. There is not enough Down in the world to make all the garbage that's out there. Most manufacturers will use a mix of Down and Feathers to fill their garments. This should be disclosed on the Joker, which is the label that describes content. Because a feather has a harder Quill, it has a tendency to want to poke when prodded. This will not be detrimental to the garment for there are thousands of them in each baffle. Humperdink, I don't mean to dispel your theory on baffling but that has little to do with this issue. However, baffling is an important aspect of the construction. If a garment has only a single layer baffle construction, you will experience cold spots at the stitching. I good down garment will have an offset baffle construction, two separate layers of Down.

    I bought a parka by CDW last year, but had to return it, looked like an expensive, thin raincoat.

    Also, like the california winter jacket. Looks like it hits short--maybe just below the belt line. Anorak-ish?

    Simple and clean.

    Just checked their site, they did find a way to pick the least interesting of the vest style, and marked it up like there is no tomorrow. Poor colour choice as well.

    Yeah, it looks pretty nice but go take a look at a couple of posts back and you'll see that CDW don't make their products up to scratch.

    I had read those earlier posts. Still, irrelevant to my opinion. I think it looks good.

    Does the hooded sweater run TTS? I'm a 39" chest, but figure I want a 40" for a coat so I can layer.

    I'd probably go for the M.

    I'm a 42 and I would have gotten the large, but SW guy told me to get the M. Alas, he was spot on"”and the M is perfect for me if not a bit roomy (41-43 size). I'm referring to my down vest, which might be cut differently than the down shirts, etc, but I doubt it's too different.

    I would call SW"” but in my experience you gotta size down one.
