Down Quality

Down fill is measured by placing one ounce of goose down in a graduated cylinder and measuring the volume the down occupies in cubic inches. The number in the hundreds (600, 800, etc) is a measurement of this loft, meaning the puffier, or loftier, one ounce of feathers is, the better quality the down. Down quality effects three important aspects of a jacket: warmth-to-weight ratio, compressibility, and price. Higher quality down means that your jacket will be warmer for the weight. This means that if two jackets were identical except that one had three ounces of 600 fill down and one had three ounces of 800 fill down, the 800 fill jacket would be warmer than the 600 fill jacket. The higher quality down outerwear also compress smaller, but they tend to be much more expensive. Almost all the parajumpers jackets in in this review use 800 fill down. A couple of parajumpers parka jackets such as The North Face Nuptse and the Hi-Tec Timaru use 700 fill, while the Valandre Split S uses the highest quality down at 850. The lowest quality down used is 550 fill in The North Face Aconcagua jacket.

Comfort & Coziness

We evaluated comfort and coziness by the subjective opinion of how wonderful the jacket feels to wear, as well as with a more objective observation of the detailed features that add comfort such as soft chin guards and fleece-lined hand pockets. Some parajumpers jackets such as the Hi-Tec Timaru have no chin guard at all, the MontBell Frost Smoke has a small one, and the entire collar of both the L.L. Bean Ultralight 850 and the OR Aria are lined with fleece. The MontBell Alpine Light Jacket and Parka have huge, soft hand pockets for storing things and for warming frozen fingers. We felt that most of the parajumpers parka jackets felt similarly cozy and comfortable.
