This is my second Floodlight down jacket and I love it! The only reason I got rid of the old one was to get the Parka (it covers the butt). I work in wilderness therapy and have field tested this product in the winter. I had an experience where it was snowing at elevation, and once we ascended it started raining at camp. This jacket kept me warm AND dry during the rainstorm. Once I got into the tarp shelter I shook off the water (the jacket had compressed, and it dried and regained loft within the hour. It eliminated my need for a shell and a down jacket. Will be using this as both my field jacket and my resort jacket.
