    Hard to beat down. The Kuiu super down is a nice coat. I tried one on in the store.
    I have a Montebell I bought on sale a few years ago from Backcountry.com. It is always in my pack. I think it weighs about 7 or 8 ounces.

    I prefer Primaloft just because you don't have to worry about it if it gets wet.

    Check Sierra Trading Post or the REI clearance section, I picked up a really nice Marmot jacket at REI for like half the regular price.
    Ah, the nostalgic aroma of a yak dung stove brewing up some tea full of herbs best left untranslated.

    I think there is a place for both if you hunt early and late season.

    Scott is right.
    Winter when hunting pigs in the rain I always have my primaloft coat under my rain gear. It keeps it's warmth even when wet. Anytime I am expecting rain I always pack it. Down works best in dry weather or snow.

    I have a Kelvin Lite Vest that I really like. It doubles as a pillow back at camp.

    I haven't used the Kelvin Lite stuff but I love my Kelvin Down Nobody for the really cold weather hunts.

    I have the same bottoms but they are the pants not the bibs i love them.
