Use coupon code BHGNOV for an extra 20% off plus free shipping. Stacks with current down sale prices – I'm pretty sure the down sale ends today, not sure about the coupon. With coupon the Downlight vest is $71 before tax, Downlight sweater is $111 before tax.Oct 27, 2011 at 9:40 am #1795586

Thanks — I've been looking for a while for a vest for my wife, and this is perfect. Now the hard part will be hiding it until Christmas.

Thanks. Got the downlight sweater for my son for $111. Now I can sleep in on Black Friday and only lose $5 on the deal.Nov 2, 2011 at 10:21 am #1797798
Even with the extra 20% off the Cabela's is $40 cheaper. Just looking for a layering piece and wondering if there is a big difference.

I recently purchased the Cabela's Superlight 750 Down Jacket, size medium regular, color green on sale for $54.99, regular $130.
On my scale, the jacket weighs 18.4 oz. and, according to customer service, the jacket contains about ~6.5 ounces of down.
So far I like the jacket. The color is lovely, the fit is decent, the material is durable enough that I can wear it around town and in the woods, and it will keep me warm during the winter. I only wish it was equipped with a hood and less pockets. But for the price, versatility, and warmth… it works for me =)Nov 3, 2011 at 9:39 am #1798201
Not to derail the thread – but how did that jacket fit?
What size did you get that you measured it at 18.5 oz? Cabellas customer service said they are 21oz.
I seem to be in between a small and medium on their chart. There is no local store and online returns are such a hassle.Nov 3, 2011 at 11:13 am #1798228

Eric, my men's size medium regular weighs 18.4 oz. My chest measurement is about 39 inches.
Overall, I am OK with the way the jacket fits me. I can wear a base-layer and full-zip hooded fleece underneath it without feeling like a stuffed sausage.
My recommendations for improving the jacket:
1.) make the arms an inch longer
2.) add an optional hood
3.) narrow the width a little
4.) remove some pockets
5.) narrower wrist cuffs
But, like I said, for the price, versatility, and warmth, I am happy with it. Obviously, the amount of clothing you plan on wearing underneath your jacket will help determine whether to choose a small or medium. When in doubt, you could order both sizes and return the one you don't want. Ask Cabela's if they will pay for return shipping.Nov 4, 2011 at 7:35 am #1798488
