      Before Thanksgiving I got an REI Magma 850 Down Hoodie 2.0. It's normaly $219 but it was on a pre-black Friday sale plus I had a good coupon, plus I'll get a member's rebate so I got it for about 1/2 price. I wanted to upgrade my kit for 3 season treks. Currently my winter coat is heavy canvas and flannel ( not suitable for hiking). I've been wearing it for a couple of months and come to really like it. It's not an expedition parka bit have fount it to be perfectly adequate for trips around town when it's in the 20s. I wasn't expecting it would replace my winter coat but I may get through the whole season with it. Unlike other affordable puffies, this one is made with high end materials. It also has a number of nice design features, such as deep pocket (no lost gloves), and hood that adjusts in the back.

      Was looking at one at the REI in Houston yesterday. If I do ever get one it will probably be like you describe sale plus discount coupon.
