For that matter, you might also sniff around some of the Web-based clearance sites to see what you find. As a for instance, Sierra Trading Post was recently selling a cold weather down parka with a Gore Dryloft shell for $199$130 less than retail. REI-Outlet.com had a Moonstone down parka for $119 (alas, small only). Campmor had a decent-looking down sweater for a mere $49. And in a few places I'm seeing North Face Nuptse jackets, regularly $199, for as low as $150. So down needn't cost hundreds of dollars.
Here's to cheap warmth!
