    Both the Camosun and the Therme do not have a 2 way.

    Why don't you outline what you're looking for in a winter coat. Just look at the Camosun picture and you'll notice a stopper at the bottom of the zip. IIRC the only bird jackets with a two-way zip is the Khuno and Galvanic but for the length of the Camosun, it doesn't really need a two-way.

    Could you elaborate on what you mean by efficient here? Having a hard time between the Field IS, Node, and the Monitor Down. Think the Field IS looks the best but unsure if would be as warm as the down ones. Would appreciate any thoughts!

    It's just an opinion of mine that the Field IS is better, their best piece ever made actually. It's got two more pockets than the node, the hood can be stuffed away into the collar area and it cost less simply because it doesn't use down. With proper layering underneath, either one will get you through the winter.

    @Caligari How is this sizing on the Therme? 5'7" / 175lbs good for a Medium?

    I'm 6' and 190 and I wear anything from a medium to an XL in the Bird. My Therme is M.

    Mugiwara, I'm the same height and weight as you, and I just ordered a small. Hopefully it has enough room in the shoulders and chest.

    Now I need to dump my 8 year old Canada Goose parka. The CG clones seem to multiply exponentially every winter. I'm out.

    Spoke to the warranty department and the Therme will be returning next winter, also I was able to find out that the Monitor Shell for Spring/Summer will be available in the Neptune Light colour from this winter. Altitude Sports still has the Therme (Black) for 20% OFF this black friday.

    Great decision to bring back the Therme because the Camosun is just CRAP.

    I wonder if it'll have a two way zipper.

    @brokeassp I absolutely love mine! It hasn't been the right combination of cold + wet yet this year to warrant wearing it under my field jacket, but I wear it on its own a lot. Great silhouette, breaks the wind, and provides good warmth for the weather where I live so far this year (around 5 degrees Celsius).

    The monitor down jacket is very warm and wonderfully constructed. I believe it is one of the most insulated jackets in the Veilance lineup. It wasn't right for me as it would be too much for a D.C. winter but I imagine it'd be perfect in colder climes.

    Well I just received the 2013 Therme in Black from the warranty department and to my surprise it DOES have a 2-way zipper. Usually wear a small in Veilance and I think I should have downsized to a XS in the Therme; still the small looks great. Glad I took peoples advice on the Therme, much warmer than any Veilance jacket.

    Nice! I'd heard that change was coming. Glad you like the Therme it's quite amazing.

    It is, can not even tell the difference in quality compared to the made in Canada Veilance. I guess they must have took out the 2-way zipper on the 2014 versions.

    The one I just received through retail also has a two way zipper.

    Overall it's a beautifully constructed and subdued appearing parka. However, it doesn't fit my body type, and it's nothing that a size change will fix. I bought a small and the arms are a touch long and way too tight, and the chest is a snug. A medium would be way too long in the arms and the parka length would be at my knees. :(
