What is the actual fill weight of goose down, how much of 800fp is there to keep you warm?

I can't find it. Curious cause the jacket looks rather tempting otherwise

 

Hi Stuart, good question...

We've sent a message to TNF to see if we can find out, hopefully we'll have an answer back shortly.

Also, is it fully baffled or stitched through construction?

Quick Google, yip baffled, over 1100g total weight (660g in review). Nearly twice the weight!

Not a good review......

Stuart
