    I'll jump in here. After MUCH research and self-debate I pulled the trigger on my first piece. I copped the Camosun Parka in black, size small at a discount from Sporting Life.

    It arrived today and the jacket is beautiful. Not too sure why @caligari says its "crap" compared to the Therme? Please elaborate.

    One problem though (which appears to be a common theme with Arc and AV pieces) is the sizing. I'm 5',8", 168 lbs with an athletic fit and I went with the small. Um....nope! The arm length and coat length is spot on but the cost is way too tight in the chest area (I have a roughly 41" chest). I tried it on with a light hoodie and just a tshirt and it was pretty tight. I contacted customer service to track down a medium for me instead as that should give me more breathing room when layering; however I'm a little worried the sleeve length and cost length won't be as spot on. I'll update once I get the new jacket and return this small. Hopefully this info helps anyone curious about sizing on this particular jacket.

    Just want to say a big thank you for your advice, which was spot on. I went with the Galvanic in size M and while snug in the chest with a suit blazer underneath, the arms are just right. The L would have been too long in the arms as you said.

    Thanks again and cheers!

    Got the Monitor Down and it's a little big. Anyone want a new MD for $750?

    good price i bought mine for like ~$1000 much earlier in the season. sort of a mistake since it was so warm that i didn't start wearing it till now.

    $750 is an incredible deal for a new Monitor down IMO.

    Wore mine in ~50 degree temp today as I misjudged the NYC weather. Still perfectly comfortable since the sleeves are coreloft so don't feel sweaty (yet equally warm/comfy over just a T-shirt in 25-30 deg temps earlier this week).

    can anyone recommend a jacket similar to the veillance node, but for less money? the node's $1250 price tag is wayyy out of my budget. i love the jacket, but can't afford it :(

    What size are you? There are a few veilance items on sale including the node (large and up I think) on altitude sports. Also they have a herno laminar gore-tex/wind stopper down jacket (European 50 large and up) that is similar to the node on sale. I may even have a promo code you can add on top of that.

    I'm an XS in the veillance node. I haven't found this size on sale anywhere, but I'll keep looking. In the meantime, if anyone has other suggestions, let me know!

    I was also considering an arcteryx cerium + shell, but the fit and overall appearance won't be as nice.

    I found an XS field IS jacket on sale, but I think it's too long for me (I'm 5'8")
