I purchased this jacket today from Bangalore. I asked the salesperson for a down jacket and she suggested me this saying it is upto -15 deg c. When I asked about xlight t she said, xlight is less insulation than this jacket. But when I see online, xlight t shows -5 to -10 and this jacket only upto -5c. What is truth? How to make refund? I don't have time to go to shop again!
Thank you for reaching out with your question regarding the Full down jacket.
I apologise for the wrong information provided to you. I am assuming the sales staff got confused between the two models. X-light is 5 degrees warmer than this jacket but this jacket is 200gms lighter than x-light.
X-light is a hybrid jacket with a blend of synthetic filling, feathers and down while this jacket is completely feathers & down. If warmth is your priority I suggest you get your jacket exchanged for an x-light, but if you want to save weight and space and stay fairly warm then this is my favourite. At 250gms in size large this is our warmest jacket for it's weight.
For exchange/refund you will have to visit your nearest store unless you have bought it online.
I am available at your disposal should you require any further assistance.
Many thanks and regards,

Nice good looking worderful in -climate
It's all it was promised to be. The down filling makes it ultra light while ensuring it remains very warm. Its also easy to pack and carry around - it rolls up into a slim sausage. Zippers are great quality too. Wish they had more colour choices.
lightweight, very warm, easy to roll and carry
colour choice nonexistent
Wow ! an excellent product or rather utility !
serves the purpose excellently [obviously being made from down]
very light & very comfortable!
fits in very easily in the back-pack in a very very less space.
very fast & easy to use...
frankly, even my daughter & wife hv used the same, so it's actually an unisex utility... barring the styling part, if not bothered about...
light weight & comfort
not being water resistant...
Awesome jacket !!
I have had a previous incarnation of this jacket, when it was under the Wed'ze marque. I loved it for the fit, the warmth and the tiny pack size (I've used it as a warm overlayer for skiing and other activities, and just wandering around town in winter).
When I saw that the Quechua version was discounted to £22, I thought I'd buy another one 'just in case', assuming the design and fit would be the same.
Sadly, the design has changed, for the worse (for me, anyway).
The upper arm of the sleeve is baggier than it used to be, even if used as an overlayer.
The sleeves are about 2.5cm shorter.
The hood design has changed, so that the hood feels tight at the back, pulling the body of the jacket up, and feeling somewhat restrictive. The previous fit was perfect for me, although only having a simple lycra-bound edge elastication to hold it up; if can be blown down by winds.
I had liked the design of the shoulder baffles on the Wed'ze version, as they have raglan seams, and thus eliminate the cold spot commonly found in other down jackets that have a simple shoulder seam. This design feature is retained in the Quechua version.
If you have short, very muscular arms, and a squat neck, this might be a perfect lightweight overlayer or warm midlayer.
Sadly, even at the bargain price, I returned the jacket due to the poor fit for me.
Great value for money, good shoulder baffle design
Design isn't as good as it used to be
I got this in the sale, so it's a bargain. More than acceptable in every way - almost.
Be aware, that as it's a very thin jacket, the amount of fill in each compartment is very little and I've seen many examples where the odd cell look almost empty, especially in the arms. In a puffier jacket this would be unlikely to happen with natural variation. With so little fill it seems unavoidable. However, it's still a good jacket and warm enough for it's weight/packability
Weight, Value, General fit
sizing, limited fill in some cells
Great value for money, but rather let down by issues with fit. Those with normal length arms and a trim torso will find the body and sleeves excessively baggy for the length of the arms. The hood is hopelessly small (I don't have a huge head either), such that the shoulders ride up when it is on (no hat or helmet).
As others have mentioned, a waist draw-cord would have been nice (although adding weight and cost), but not necessary had the fit been better considered.
