Found the jacket to be ideal for this time of year, is lightweight but keeps you warm as the temperature drops and the hood is useful when the rain appears. I've not tried packing it into the small bag inside the pocket yet.
I've owned quite a few down items. But this one really is warm for its weight. I have not tested them yet for colder conditions. Just flew from UK to Vancouver and here it gets really COLD at night and perfect item to bring. Regarding durability, I am always careful because the outer ? Arato is quite thin. It is also loosing a few down feather but nothing significant. I just wished I bought it earlier, I could have avoided spending some money searching for one of the greatest down jacket. The hood is also GREAT!!!!
