    Yeah I almost got that one. Considering it was a tad bit expensive and too heavy I decided not to get it. Although it is a very nice jacket and a great deal. I'm just cheap

    That seems to be the problem. Not only that.. I just saw the Montbell 900 that weighs in under 6oz and I almost crapped my pants.

    yeah to get anything under 15oz your going to spend at least $125 and thats used even ....
    your better off saving up and waiting for a sale thats how i got my Patagonia down sweater waited for a sale and got it for $130
    everything in your price range is going to be around 20oz or more
    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold

    Montbell makes some nice down goodies. I'm hoping to be able to pull the trigger on one of these babies before the Mount Rogers Winter Hang.

    I jumped on that sale too. I've been wanting a down winter parka for a few years. Hope it's a nice as it looked. I think the new Golite version of that jacket has 900 fill.

    I have the 8 oz Montbell 800 fill liner jacket (no hood) and use it for 3 season. Wanted something heavier for winter. Got it big enough to layer the two for even more warmth if I need it. I bought the Montbell on sale a few years ago for only slightly less than this Golite. I thought the Golite was a good deal.

    have you checked out montbell?

    http://www.spadout.com/p/montbell-down-inner-jacket/

    http://www.spadout.com/p/montbell-ex-light-down-jacket/

    http://www.spadout.com/b/Montbell/mens-jackets/

    Not quite $75 but you could keep your eye on the prices or set up price notifications. either way, great jackets if you dont mind limited features and very light materials

    edit: heh, just noticed montbell has been suggested. hope the links are helpful at least. you could also keep an eye on backcounty.com's steep and cheap and jump on a deal
