/ Micro down jacket
What would be peoples recommendations, my only preference is for the jacket to have a hood.
I could recommend a Marmot Quasar hoodie... mainly because I have a brand new one that I don't need, if you want to buy it?
Get a uniqlo one - perfectly good and not very expensive. Don't expect micro baffled down jackets to be much warmer than a snuggly fleece though.
What size,colour etc
If your close to a decathlon go for the wedze ultralight down jacket.
I've got patagucci down jackets and I honestly think this one is as good if no better and at £45 ish a bargain
Size Small (though its like a US size small - so not actually THAT small), blue (they call it "dark Azure" with Green zips.)
Seconded. My M weighs 250g, and packs down small; stuffed into the bottom of my small MTB pack for skiing this year (leaving room for usual goggles, camera, etc).
Not as well stuffed as something like a Rab Microlight Alpine, and face fabric not as robust. But about 1/4 the price... (well, 1/3 now that the Alpine is available for about £125)
Oh, the Wed'ze might now be discounted to £35:
Hmm... women only, it seems. Men's is still £50
