New Sheffield based company with a conscience.
Not industry leading specs at 850 fp. The leading companies use 1000 fp these days. If I was unfair I'd say 850 is closer to my 750fp me smock that's 20 years old and was the same spec as the same model when it came out 10+ years before that.
Why not be honest by saying it's to typical industry specs but we're supplying it with a social conscience that you're really paying for. Retail with charity. That might be a draw not necessarily the specs. Although I could be wrong.
Market leading IMHO is PHD products.
And just like PHD products there's no mention of fill weight. Looks quite a nice jacket, with all those features though I don't think there'll be much down in it for 350g, or wether they use EU or US down standards.
I'm ambivalent on the fill power of down in jackets. While high fill power allows a jacket to be equally warm at a lower weight in theory, higher fill power will also suffer more from fill compression in wind etc, and at the lighter end of the jacket range for a jacket with 100g of 850 fill the weight saving of 1000FP will be a mere 15g. That said, if anyone wants to buy me Rab Infinity G, I take a size M.
I've never bought a PHD jacket because they don't state the fill weight. And that's the only reason - nothing to do with price, honestly.
Yes i noticed no fill weights. Nice long cut though...oh, no dimensions either.
