Already Shedding Feathers
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Large
Did a lot of research on my first down jacket for an upcoming winter trip and ended up with the Illuminate. Pros: Great fit (I'm 6' 185 lbs and the Large is perfect), extremely warm and light. Seems to be excellent build quality.
Cons: I've owned this jacket for less than a week and already a considerable amount of feathers are shedding from the lower seems. I'm not sure if this is normal for a down jacket, but definitely doesn't seem like it should be. Disappointing overall and will likely be returning.
