I'm a fan of Ortovox Swisswool at the moment. The Zebru jacket seems to be the lightest with hood in their program. It's not as fragile as a down jacket, you can use it with a backpack without...

The bear report with picture was from Fb ;-) - pretty grown up cub probably in his last year but injured somehow, so Momma is even more alert.

There was one article about whatever people did wrong. But no proof. Maybe they found a diaper somewhere. Overall the reaction to this COVID-19 has so many dire effects that the people responsible...
