The North Face Catalyst 2011

The The North Face Catalyst weighs 528g (size L); 800 fill power goose down; Pertex Quantum fabric; ideal as a spare insulator in warmer weather; stuffs into its own pocket; more hardwearing shoulder and sleeve outer fabrics for durability. But hood does not get a volume adjuster and it is not removable; not as well-insulated in the body as others either. 

The The North Face Catalyst is a reasonably light duvet that would be ideal in spring to autumn, but not the warmest in winter.
