Fine piece, but to be a pedant... "it weighs literally nothing"... really?!

In reply to JayPee630: LOL, typical! To be honest I was going to go and look in my cupboard for something to compare the weight to, and forgot. So, thanks for reminding me. It weighs about the same as 4 regular size Mars bars (58g each), and I have now changed this in the review...

Sorry, didn't mean be an arse, but that misuse of 'literally' thing annoys me!

Good review anyway!

In reply to JayPee630: No probs, trying to be really accurate to avoid forum pedantry is all part of the fun of writing for UKC ;) FYI I've also added a photo to show how thin it is.

In reply to UKC Gear: Am I getting tight in my old age or is UL Down and Syntetic insulation really expensive for what your getting?

240 for the UL Down Jacket and 160 I know top fabrics and fillings cost but I have a Moutain Equipment Xero Sleeping bag with nearly 4 times the amount of Down and lots more fabric and complicated construction yet that retails for "only" 280.

I know Patagonia stuff is good stuff and pricy I have a lot of it I've picke up in sales
