Topic - MH Ghost Whisperer Down Hoody & Alpine Winter

Mr-Cowdrey - on 29 Dec 2013
I'm trying a 'new' idea this winter which combines a super light down jacket underneath a super light synthetic jacket for belaying. The two jackets I have in mind are:

Arcteryx Nuclei Hoody (280g)
MH Ghost Whisperer Hooded Down Jacket (212g)

The idea behind this is that I have the warmth of down with the protection of synthetic on top. Plus the combination is lighter than a single, larger belay jacket and is more versatile.

But my question is, would the Ghost Whisperer be warm enough under the synthetic jacket, or should I consider a slightly heavier down jacket round the 300 - 400g mark

Cheers
