I have a question about my new jacket. I purchased a skiing down jacket from Spyder. I have not worn down before so I do not know what to expect. It has a 700 down count and a breathable, waterproof shell.
At what temperature can I expect 700 to keep me warm? I know everyone is different, but a ball park would be nice. There is not much room underneath for a fleece so I am concerned that I may be cold.
I also purchased a un-insulated shell and a thin jacket with the reflected heat technology to go underneath. Again, they fit me exactly with no room for an extra fleece layer.
I plan on wearing the down during the coldest months and the shell/jacket combo during the warmer times.
It's going to have to get pretty cold for you not to be warm in that jacket. You're hands and face are probably going to freeze first.

I gotta imagine in Colorado down is overkill. Unless you run super cold, you should stay warm. Personally I had a down jacket in Minnesota (read: MUCH colder) and ditched it because I NEVER used it. I might have needed it on a day when it was say -40... but if it's THAT cold I'm not braving the elements for shitty Minnesota mole hills.
