    I just got my golite bitterroot jacket today. 13oz jacket and 150 grams of it are down. It is more beautiful than my kelvinator and fitzroy. It doesn't feel as warm as my fitzroy but it is truly the best jacket out there for the price ,weight and amount of down in it. It's definitely ultralight as well. It's also 150 bucks. A dollar a gram of 850 down. I'll post some pics later.

    Is this to be durable primary outerwear or something you'd like use for a mid layer; comfortable to sleep in? Need weatherproof fabric, hood, etc.?

    I picked up a Marmot Quasar (similar to down sweater) about a month ago and just love it. 900 fill, light, soft shell material, and amazingly warm for the 9 oz weight. Plan to use with a Golite rain shell in the winter along with a black rock hat; sleep in when I need to add to my sleep system. Packs down fairly small into its own pocket so will be in the pack when not worn. Pricy, but found on sale for 185.00.

    Only problem I had was that the Lg was just the a hair too tight across the lats when I stretched or had on a base layer and additional shirt. Liked this product enough to look for an XL; found in black on Amazon for 194.00 and received it Tuesday. Returning the Lg to Campmor next week. I'm 5'10, 180, ~44" chest. The Quasar is long in the torso and long sleeves for the sizing; both of which I like.

    If looking for a durable primary winter jacket, I don't think the Quasar the ultimate solution (seems a bit delicate), but as a mid layer or insulation under a shell, and the price doable, it's a good solution.

    You have any idea if they run small or large for any given size. I'm looking for something in the mid-range weight. Something between a Northface Nuptse (Big and puffy) and a Patagonia down Sweater (pretty minimal). It looks like the Golite at that fabulous price might just be the ticket.

    Anyone agree?

    I do not own one. However, I find Golite runs true to size.
