MontBell states that the Ex Light Down Jacket is "the ultimate in minimalist design" and it's hard to argue with that. It combines cutting edge materials - 7 denier (0.74 oz/yd2) shell, 900 fill-power down - and minimizes features to create the lightest down jacket to be found. It's claimed to provide more warmth than a fleece jacket with a fraction of the weight or bulk and is basically targeted to people like us who want a high warmth-to-weight ratio. So what's not to like? Is it truly a gift from heaven?
