yep. the denali uses Polartec 300 fleece, which has a clo of .92 (fixed, thought it was polartec 200) according to this:

meanwhile, a solid down jacket like the montbell alpine light jacket has a clo of 2.5

that's almost 3 times the heat retention.

and people are all over the patagonia nano puff jackets, but they're about half as warm as an actual down jacket.
How about down compared to Columbias Omni Heat? Read that it was one of the warmest if not the warmest but not sure compared to down.

I would have jumped all over this MH Nitrous, but today I found a 650 power down jacket at JC Penney for $20 on clearance. It's certainly not in the same ballpark as these $150-$300+ MSRP jackets by MH, Columbia, and Marmot but for my lightweight layering purposes it'll do fine.

XXL is in-stock online, otherwise maybe call or run to your JCP store.

The medium weighs only 10.2 ounces on my scale.

Thanks for the good post OP. Repped!

omni-heat is kind of a gimmick. as i understand it, the "20% warmer" claims only apply when you are wearing nothing else, since it's only a thin inner lining of a jacket. The more insulation you stack on top of it the less of a real benefit it provides, as a percentage of total insulation.

If there was a huge benefit to this, all the backpacking brands would be using something similar, or licensing it by now. but they're not. i don't think columbia even uses omniheat in their mountain hardwear line.

i don't intend on doing any climbing or hiking in this and looked nicer than most of the jackets on the site so i jumped on it.

no, you can get 900+ fill power jackets, like this:

http://montbell.us/products/disp....id=2301365

and fill power doesn't tell you how warm the jacket is, it tells you how lofty the down inside it is. an 800 fill power jacket with only 1 ounce of down will probably not be as warm as a 650fp jacket with 2 ounces of down.

just don't get the down jacket wet, or else it will be useless when it's wet.

you'll start seeing bubbles forming on your down jacket. then before you know it, it multiplies.

The Marmot Mantra is an even better deal at $122 plus tax if applicable with a list price of $285. I'm in for one of these. Thanks for the link!
But you won't have all those bumps that make you look like a down comforter.shake head

The Nuptse 2 will be quite a bit warmer.

By itself over a T-shirt, sitting still and outside all day, I would expect 40f would be as low as I would want to go.
