Aushiker wrote:The search continues ... came across UniQlo and their Ultra Light Down jacket today. They have a presence in Australia so for some you could see the jackets in store. BPL, Bushwalk.com.au and Reddit seem to be positive about these jackets which are sub 300 grams from what I can found out and really really price competitive at AU$119.90 and possibly cheaper again via eBay.



Perhaps pertinent to those able to reach a store

I've got one of those jackets I bought in Japan for 2500yen. Good as a very light overlayer, even better as a mid layer... compacts down to something the size of a baked bean can.

The above Ozbargain site link according to Warin is for a sale on Fathers Day.

This wasn't mentioned in the original Uniglow posting so I posted it in here thinking it had already started.

Apologies to anyone put out :oops:

Hmmmm I'm not even sure when Fathers Day is......... :shock:

September usually.


If anyone hasn't already check out Mont in Canberra for outdoor wear, their gear is brilliant.

This drop is back at Massdrop ... the lowest price is ~AU$199 so a bit cheaper than in March.

Had to replace my Haglof Essen Minimic [long story short, some idiot didn't secure his saddle bag] so just picked up a Montbell US Plasma 1000 Down Jacket which weighs in sub-200 grams and was selling for $200 from the Montbell Australia website. Apparently reduced from $400.

For some possibly interesting prices on jackets including down ones, following an Ozbargain site referral, I came across a site I'd not seen before:

For a brief moment, I thought you were talking about salbutamol/Chris Froome. :D

I have a good quality down jacket, but it's so good I just can't bring myself to take it bikepacking.
So I thought I'd give one of the Harrisscarfe ones a go.
I'll let you know if it's any good.

With Perth reporting its coldest night in nine years recently (assuming I read the article right), even if all its used for is adding some warmth to a sleeping bag, its a decently priced tool.

Look forward to reading your report. Good luck with it.
