    Are you talking about this? (Pardon the cheesy pose).

    It's soft, warm but I felt they should size the sleeves and torso length longer. Normally a 48 and wearing a size L in the pic.

    I really have grown to love my ultra light down jacket (I have the black, long sleeve, no hood version). The fit is nice and slim, it's great to wear alone or to layer with, it's got a lot of pockets, and it's light and compact-able. Only problem is, the materials are cheap as hell. Can anyone recommend a more "baller" alternative? Thanks in advance

    You mean down jacket in general or light down jacket? The only real money I'd spend on down is crescent down works (and I have). There is a thread here on them.

    Or you can pay $800 for some moncler bullshit.

    not to derail but just out of personal interest/curiosity...

    Moncler

    So what's the story? Is it like a Burberry where it used to mean something, they cheapened the product and raised prices and became a 'brand'? Is it high quality and worth the price despite the logo? Is it cheap shit that's way overpriced for rich flashy asians?

    I actually looked at a few but was shocked at the prices and also felt like a Michelin man so totally passed and bought a Uniqlo down jacket for $130 instead and couldn't be happier.

    Has anyone else found the current crop of jeans to be really, really low?

    If you're referring to where they sit on the waist, then yeah my pair of their selvedge sits lower than my Naked & Famous pair. My biggest gripe with them is how little their slim fit tapers. Leg openng is huge and makes cuffs look weird

    Sorry, I should have been more specific.

    I was referring to the extremely low rise of the jeans. I've been wearing versions of the skinny or slim tapered or whatever they call them for years. They always change slightly, but the ones in stores currently are absurd.

    The quality has also tanked. What used to be great, comfy beater jeans are now rubbish.

    like my Patagonia one. Not sure how much sturdier it is though. I haven't felt any of the Uniqlo ones, but you could easily tear a hole on the Patagonia one if you came into contact with the wrong branch. My Mountain Hardwear one which is not as packable is made from a tougher material.

    quite impressed with the Warm Tech down coat as a non-extreme winter coat. Previous years' down coats didn't always seem warm and/or weren't that interesting, but IMO this one compares favorably to stuff from Penfield or Woolrich, especially on sale for a benjy

    Is the Patagonia packable down any warmer than the uniqlo (are you talking about the Nano Puff?)? Doing the W-Trek in a few months and I need a lightweight but warm outer layer that can withstand the rain, cold, and heavy winds that Patagonia can throw at you out of the blue.

    I believe Nano Puffs are synthetic and not down. This is the one I have, but it comes in a non-hooded variety too. I don't have a Uniqlo one so can't compare. If you are going to be in rain than you will want to get a shell to wear over it or an insulated shell. Down loses it's insulating properties when it gets wet.

    Finally, a Uniqlo in Chicago! I can finally quote the words "meet me outside Uniqlo" (not in SF lingo, of course) :inlove:;):embar:

    do not rely on the uniqlo down for anything but casual outdoors use, the fill is just not high enough

    heattech as a base layer works well, especially the new extra warm variety, but it is worth getting a serious packable synthetic shell for extended camping and backpacking
