I need(want would be a better description but have persuaded myself I need) a lightweight down jacket more for having for eating dinner outside my van, camping etc whilst on climbing trips this summer.

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.

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

cheers

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
