This isn't the warmest down jacket for the price. It has 3.3oz(96g) of down fill (according to OR), which isn't listed here. Montbell's Frostline Parka has around 7oz(200g) of down fill in comparison, and it costs $289. I would say it feels like a deep fall/early winter jacket rather than parka level warmth. That said, this is still my go to down jacket for many activities. I use this as a ski jacket, a rain jacket when bike commuting in Vancouver, a "belay parka" (easy to throw over my hardshell since it's waterproof), etc. It's really versatile. The "cons" are really just trade offs. It's not the lightest piece of insulation because of waterproofing and features like fleece lined pockets. Some people would prefer the modularity of having a separate hardshell and insulation piece, but I love the security of having a piece of insulation that is also completely waterproof. Highly recommend!
