Down is known for its compressibility, so a lightweight down jacket can be packed into a tiny space, about the size of a water bottle. The quality of the downplays a large role in compressibility, and higher-quality down has more down to compress than lower-quality down. Synthetic fill, on the other hand, is much less compressible than down, so it’s best to look for a jacket with higher fill power.
