      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

$59 for awesome down jackets

Recommended Posts

I just bought a campmor goose down climbing jacket.

They have many colors and sizes. They are only 59 bucks and seem very well made and technical. The are also very light and have a high fill (600?) goose down rating. They are probably not as good as the north face down jackets but certainly as good as some of the mountain hardware ones. I just put mine in a stuff sack and it compressed really small.

59 bucks ain't bad. They look cool to.

On the contrary Mt. Hardwear tends to be a cut above TNF equipment all around (TNF Denali haha). That is a sweet deal on a down Jacket though. I'm not trying to be rude but 600 fill tends to be on the low end, but this is all relative the highest quality down comforter you can buy is like 450 fill but high end down pieces (sleeping bags jackets etc) tend to be 800-900 fill power. But this year the highest fill you can find is 850 because there is a shortage in europe. But back to the point good find :)

the jacket is way better than the old guard used to wear, and they managed. If cutting edge gear is so important, you'd better be sending cutting edge climbs.

I got my only down jacket from Campmor four years back (if I remember correctly, I paid $65 odd at that time). It is the same jacket that Jens picked out, may be an older version. It has worked great for me so far, and looks like I'll be using it at least for a few more years. It does not have a hood, but has been adequate for most cold conditions I've been in.

 

I've bought a lot of my gear from Campmor. They always have awesome deals. Of course they do not carry much of climbing gear.
