Down gives you the advantage great warm with lightness and small pack size and with the advances made and use of Hydrophobic Down, as in the new Berghaus Ulvetanna Hybrid Down Jacket, getting these jackets wet isn't the problem it used to be. Synthetic insulation is just as warm but a little heavier and doesn't pack down as small but the insulation still keeps you warm when wet.
