Maybe not, but you implied it's something above "puffer jackets". You also assumed, rather condescendingly, that he can only afford Old Navy. Not everyone wants to pay for the name and marketing, regardless of wealth.
The guy was trolling and was called out.

is there an equivalent with a hood?
If you want something hooded, for $50 more this Mountain Hardware is a much nicer looking jacket IMO. The material has a matte finish, it's stretch makes it more form fitting and doesn't wrinkle badly like so many others. I can't speak to it's durabilty as I've only had mine for a month https://www.thelasthunt.com/products/mo ... WzEALw_wcB

Some people like and can afford BMW’s while others settle for Corollas.

Some people like and can afford Patagonia jackets for $200..others go with Old Navy.

What’s the point of coming in here to bash people or the brand ? It’s obviously a good jacket and brand. If it’s out of your financial wheelhouse, check out another brand.

You can have them fixed which is why I love Patagonia but that takes a few weeks to a month each time.
How much do they charge for fixing?

it was nice sale last year when they had it. i picked up a m down jacket for cheap but i really wanted one with hood (also a non bright colour). i am hoping they would have a similar sale.
I have good experience with Arcteryx Atom AR jacket, not down jacket though, but it’s so comfy and warm . I got them for $249 , would recommend that if you want something with hood .

I wonder how is this Patagonia compare with Arcteryx Cerium LT?
I have purchased Eddie Bauer Downlight Alpine (800 fill power, 90% down, 10% feather) over the weekend for $132 plus taxes.
https://www.eddiebauer.ca/product/mens- ... o-top-link
Eddie Bauer Alpine might not be exactly the same light weight as Panagonia or Arcteryx Cerium LT, but it might be a cheap alternative to think about?

I had three Cerium LTs, one of them being a vest. While I love the look, feel and warmth of this jacket (one of the nicest, warmest puffers out there), I would ultimately avoid it. The simple reason is that all my Ceriums leak feathers daily. That's a deal breaker for me. I sent one in and a relatively easy exchange, but still had to pay $20+ to ship to BC. The rep said it's a known problem with that model/year Cerium (2017). The one they changed me too 1.5 months later also leaks feathers frequently btw.

I sent the second Cerium I had a month later, also due to the leaking issue and I no longer want a Cerium due to these problems. It's fine, you can take any model you want but have to pay any difference. Well, right now Arc' shelves are completely bare, with all of their insulated jackets OOS in many sizes and that will be the state of things for a long time. Their reps barely communicate now and stretch any communication for as long as possible due to not being able to provide any helpful answers. It amazes me that a company doesn't keep separate spare jackets specifically for exchanges, where you need to make it up to the customers in reasonable time for your failed product.

Arc'teryx...owned by Amer Sports. Back in December, there was an announcement that Amer will be sold to a consortium led by Anta Sports.

I wonder how that's going... Does that mean Arc'teryx is going to be a Chinese brand?

how do you know? Which colors do they have?

Edit: Just went to SAIL Burlington. they have NO Patagonia for men. They got a shipment, but its not in the stores yet. No idea what they have in terms of style. The whole store is on sale, but Patagonia (womens) is not on sale.
I work there. They definitely have them. Right now they're waiting to be priced. I thought they would have priced it yesterday considering everyone's been wanting them.

Edit: I know they have them because I checked the order sheets the other day. Didn't check the colours though.

another advantage of the Mountain Hardware Stretchdown DS I posted here earlier- it has welded seams, so no feather leakage

I also have this jacket for a few years. Not as warm as advertised 800 fill is a bit misleading. My Northface 550 fill is actually warmer then this jacket by a long shot. But, this jacket is not as bulky. Think I might try Arcteryx , type layer jacket for my next buy.
Theres a difference betwee fill power and fill weight.

On another note, I have never heard the term puffer used before until this website and I am on few different outdoor forums.

I'll try it in person. From the online pics it looks kind of weird.

No idea. I just know their customer service isn't what it's cracked up to be, especially when they experience any kind of hurdles. I ask them if they could reasonably accommodate me - such as a refund or another model that is in stock - due to the long exchange wait time caused by their stock shortage (I sent them the second Cerium in early December). So far it's crickets. Not impressed and I have like 6 Arc' pieces in total. Likely will rethink next time, especially if its something not named Atom or has feathers inside.

It's the winter season which they are swamped at the warranty department.

I get it. But when it takes 1+ weeks to do a simple reply you're clearly understaffed. Aside from the leaky feathers, the biggest thing off with this company is the supply is way lower than the demand. I was trying to find alternative models (Camuson, Macai, Fission etc) all over Toronto, to measure the fit as Arc requested, but every store is sold out of most of their insulated jackets over a month ago. I settled for Atom AR a few weeks ago because they told me they'd get it within two months. But just last week - oops we won't have it by then, and we can't say when. And of course I had to see that change myself on their inventory - they didn't even bother to update me on the cancelled availability after they promised they would have it in 2 months. So if I didn't see it I would have ended up waiting for nothing. Arc service is looking like amateur hour imo.

It's is the end of the season where stock is not being replenished and stocking of spring items have started. Also living in the GTA during a snowstorm, not gonna find a winter jacket this late in the season.
