Down is still far better than any synthetic in terms of warmth to weight ratio, except in the wet. But a down jacket with a highly water resistant outer shell is going to keep the snow and ice off the down for longer, thus keeping your down dry and free to loft. This technical duvet from Mountain Equipment is coming to you at an exceptionally low price, especially considering it still packs in 286g of 90% 600+ Fill Power down, for use comfortably down to -10°C.
