Nice looking but very thin insulation

I would like to have a light but warm jacket that would keep me comfortable in the 30s F temperature. This jacket, marketed as a Polartec Alpha and 800 fill goose down jacket, seemed to be a good fit. This jacket (Cinder color) does look very nice and have a trim fit. But the insulation layers, both the Polartec Alpha and the goose down, are extremely thin. I wonder how much goose down is in this jacket. I worn the jacket during a daytime temperature of low 40s with a relatively thick sweater (Dale of Norway) underneath. I would say I felt somewhat cold especially when there were light breezes blowing...not sure it justifies its relatively high price tag.
