Topic - Down jackets for UK use

Tall Clare - on 29 Nov 2013
Hello all,

I have the opportunity to replace my knackered synthetic duvet jacket with a down jacket. The new jacket will be used for day-to-day cold weather wear (e.g dog walking), winter camping, and perhaps some winter climbing.

I'm drawn to the likes of the Mountain Equipment Sigma but I'm wondering whether the new generation of lightweight down jackets are more than adequate for my needs? I run pretty warm, and don't want (can't afford!) more than one insulated jacket.

I know the Sigma is water-resistant; how water-resistant are any of the lightweight options?
