Unfortunately nope...

I'm on the lookout for an 'ultra' light down jacket with hood and came across this one. I don't need a jacket for the city but one that also delivers outdoors. The fit of M is nice on a typical M kind of person like me. Unfortunately that's where it ends.
When unpacking I already noticed the top / shoulder and front part feeling kind of flimsy with not much down. I took it outside to test outside and indeed was feeling chilly around that region.
In comparison to other such jackets there is just not much padding in the top area and what is there gets sort of compacted (i guess the outer layer should be cut slightly larger than the inner so this doesn't happen and there is room for the padding to expand.
Anyway, I like the jacket in theory but it fails in performance and unfortunately will go back.
