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

Uniqlo Men's Ultra Light down Jackets - $39.90 (RRP $119.9) [in-Store Only]

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.
