Your dad is right: You need a proper down vest. Choose the 800-fill Flylow Larry Vest, which has a ripstop exterior for defending against branches, micropuff shoulders to work better with backpack straps, and a marshmallowly warm down body.
S/G Lite™ fabric (20-Denier polyester ripstop): S/G Lite stands for Stash 'n Go Lite. This proprietary material offers a balance between thin fibers and long-lasting durability. The idea is that Flylow is balancing packability and lightweight fibers with a durable material like ripstop. Products made with this fabric are wind-resistant and sturdy against the elements, but they're also light and packable.
Dri-Loft Down goose down on the chest and body: Dri-Loft Down is made from 800 and 600 fill power goose down clusters and feathers that are bathed in Durable Water Repellent, creating a warming insulator that's actually water resistant. Dri-Loft Down can be found in many of Flylow's insulated down jackets and layering pieces. Its main benefits are supreme warmth, surprising packability, water repellency, and the ability to regulate temperature.
