The Rage: The down sweater. The motive: Obvious. If you're on the go in the backcountry, keeping a five-ounce layer of down insulation that compacts to baseball size is smart and costs you almost nothing in heft or space. At twice that weight, the 800-fill Sierra Designs Gnar down hoody won't squish to quite that small (think softball), but I've also found that it's a lot warmer. No surprise, really: That weight buys you higher loft and greater fill content. LINK.
