how does the warmth of this jacket compare to down--e.g. the patagonia down coat?
For the weight, not nearly as warm as down.
I have the shorter version of this jacket, and am going to buy the longer version this winter. This is by far, in my opinion, the warmest jacket I've ever owned. I am truly amazed at how it keeps the wind, wet, and cold out. I get endless compliments on mine.
