Topic - Kili/Acon Down Jacket

jcooper1459 - on 08 Apr 2013
Hi Gents and Ladies,

Need some advice please if possible. I'm climbing Kilimanjaro in June and planning to go up Aconcagua and perhaps a couple of other South American volcanoes in a year or so. I have most of my gear but cannot seem to decide on which Down Jacket to buy. I've narrowed it down to the following (fairly large) list, can anyone please recommend/not recommend what to take.

- Mountain Equipment / Lightline - 170
- Mountain Equipment / Xero Hooded Jacket - RRP 220
- Mountain Equipment / Himal - RRP 240
- Mountain Equipment / Vega - RRP 240
- Rab / Neutrino Endurance - RRP 225
- Montane / Polestar - 150
- Alpkit / Filo - 120

I've also looked at the Mountain Equipment Gasurbhram jacket but this seems a bit excess (definately for Kili).

Any recommendations would be welcome.

Thanks in Advance.
