I really like my Kelvin jacket from Sitka but I’m getting tired of sending it in for new zippers. I just broke my 3rd or 4th zipper.

Any recommendations for jackets similar to kelvin? Doesn’t have to be name brand. Doesn’t have to be camo.

I have 3 kuiu puffys and don’t like any of them. The down doesn’t work for me. All of them have cold spots where the down doesn’t work at all.

So something besides kuiu or Sitka that is decently packable and in that void between an active jacket and a big parka?

Look into RAB down coats. Sitka and Kuiu copied the mountaineering gear. May as well go to the original source

(Backcountry) has good sales on down going on. Mammut, Marmot, Mountain Hardware, Black Diamond. Be forewarned the European clothing has the zipper on the opposite side and domestic jackets.

it similar to the sitka kelvin and may be an option for you.
