In reply to UKC Gear: How does it compare to the Patagonia DAS parka? same sort of thing, but this is lighter. as warm?
In reply to UKC Gear: Hi,

I haven't used a DAS parka, so 'I don't know' is the simple answer - sorry!

The Westcomb is a warm jacket though.

Cheers,

Jack

Jack, are we going to have lots of articles about yosemite soon or something:.


Anyhow, back to topic. I know westcomb is supposed to be very similar to arcyterix due to diff reasons. But how do you compare the fit, IE some brands are built for bulkier people whilst other have a slimmer fit like Rab...?
