    To save 17 ounces I would defiantly be taking the Tikka. Yukon jacket was my go to for the opener of stones this year and I took a Sitka kelvin lite for insulation.

    I have two pairs of the attack pants. They are excellent. Super comfy and way more waterproof than i thought they would be. Also they have held up super well to a season of region 2 bush whacking. Only thing i would say is i usually wear size 34 pants and even though they fit me i find them a little snug so i sold them and got size 36. They are a little roomy but still a good fit. Wish they made them in a size 35!

    Talltimber Yukon gear is fine. I run it. The pants are a bit heavy for aug but I just wear light weight long johns under them if it’s raining all day. Everyone is saying synthetic cause if you get it wet it still insulates and dries a lot quicker. I run down everything cause the weight savings. I use a arcteryx cerium 850 fill down jacket and have never got it wet under my Yukon and have hiked for days in the rain. Puffy pants and jacket I think are a must even in aug hunts for the 20oz they weigh. I had to sleep on a knoll in a swap under a siltarp this aug and it got below freezing at night. (Long story short passed a g bear a couple hundred yards before while carrying my mountain goat out at dusk and decided sleeping under the tarp with a small fire was better than being a tortilla in the tent lol)

    There is no such thing as "synthetic down".

    A jacket insulation fill is either "down" or "synthetic".

    Theres no "synthetic down". Its just confusing. That's what the guy above ya was pointing out.

    It's one of those HBC things.... like when people insist saying "swarvo". Wtf is that? Short for Swarvovski? Lol

    your not telling me anything I don’t know, I have the Sitka Kelvin Lite Primaloft jacket, I didn’t want the (“real”) down puffy as they’re hard to dry out when wet

    Lots of puffy jackets now are down/synthetic mixes, I think that is where people are getting confused. Recently been eyeballing the Montbell Superior Down Parka, only 8.7oz! Comparatively my older Sitka Kelvin Lite (no hood, primaloft insulation) is 13oz
