Default Mech is going to be so jealous...

Hey, Mech, look what I got for Christmas - a nice, poofy down jacket and it’s orange. Love it!

I know you want one too, real bad. Admit it.

That looks like what the guys who work outside at Home Depot wear during the Winter.

I used to have one like that but it had a big hood too. Got it at Burlington in the '80's. It was nice!

This is the Eddie Bauer one. They don’t say what kind of down it is so I suspect duck. Goose down is the best but the Eddie Bauer one is still warm and lightweight at a price that can’t be beat.

They are actually called a down sweater. I already have a goose down by a different manufacturer but it’s expensive and I don’t like to use it for work. Now I have the best of both worlds .

They’re a little flimsy so I rarely wear them without a jacket over top. I highly recommend them for anyone looking for a warm, lightweight layer to wear in the cold.

I have like every design coat and jacket Carhartt makes and it's extremely rare I wear more than a hoodie in the last ten years.

I gave my son in law 4 of the heaviest ones earlier this year.

Except it's more like the chicks that wear them.
