Mike, I'm on a tear lately to get my base weight down and have several strategic purchases in mind to do that, down puffy wasn't even on my list until I saw your post and realized I can save several ounces. My back thanks you, my wallet does not. ;-)Mar 22, 2014 at 5:03 pm #2085271
Great JR. Which one did you get? Sorry about the wallet, but sometimes are backs can suffer for longer than our wallet will, justifying the purchase. Lol..Mar 22, 2014 at 5:29 pm #2085273
I've been eyeing this down anorak for quite some time. The only reason I hesitate is that Borah Gear announced on Facebook a while back that they will be releasing a down sweater in the next month or so. Reported weight is in the neighborhood of 5ish ounces.Mar 22, 2014 at 5:39 pm #2085274

I got the non-hood. I've been using the talked-about Costco puffy, but it weighs about 12 oz. Still a great jacket for someone — I'll get the BC on sale, flip the Costo, and net net my wallet won't be bruised to badly for nearly a third of a pound savings.Mar 22, 2014 at 6:41 pm #2085287
I have the hooded anorak fyi :)Mar 22, 2014 at 7:04 pm #2085292

michael, if only that jacket was a small I'd be interested. Apparently they no longer stock the anorak in small. I'm tempted to buy the women's hooded anorak instead unless someone has a small mens they'd be willing to sell.
A while back I bought the stoic version of the pullover in medium, but it's just a little too big for me as a mid-layer. I still have it brand new with tags if anyone is interested. Color is orange.Mar 22, 2014 at 7:06 pm #2085293
Measure your chest underneath armpits, and I will tell you how it will fit.
