Synethetic Downies - the new softshell? 22-May-2011 At 9:04:03 PM Paulie
The only thing that appeals to me about a synthetic "downie" is the 'doesn't matter if it gets wet' factor. I certainly wouldn't contemplate climbing in something with that much stuff inside it. They don't look bulky until you strap a harness on and start looking for gear on it, only to be befuddled by rolls of insulation, even softshell / shell layers make this task difficult as anyone who enjoys winter climbing will tell you. I personally will stick to a proper downie, protected by pertex or epic, this combo hasn't let me down yet!
