Sub Zero Cold As Fluff Park. Does anyone know the difference, besides $50, of the regular Cold As Fluff and the Sub Zero one? The web descriptions are the same for both.

Kaitlin mentioned on WWL the sub zero is supposed to have double the amount of down without effecting the puffyness.

The difference between the the Cold As Fluff and the Subzero is that the Subzero has double the fill. I can confirm that Lululemon has provided the incorrect description for the Subzero since it says that it has the same fill (650) as the Cold As Fluff when it should actually be 1300-fill. Hope this helps!

about the parkas, the description is not the same. the *subzero has more goose down, double the amount it says if i remember correctly.

Thanks, everyone, regarding what the difference is.

FYI - Fill count only concerns the quality of the down, not the actual amount of the down in the coat. Therefore, the sub-zero should still be 650-fill, not 1300. The higher the fill power, the better quality of the feathers (i.e., they take up more space so while it may feel lighter, it will trap heat more effectively). 550-750 fill is considered "very good" while anything over 750 is considered "excellent" in terms of down quality.

12:59 - the highest fill available is 900, so I'd guess sub zero is 850-fill. The number has to do with the volume that the down takes up with the same amount of weight- the fluffier the down, the warmer the garment.

It says 650 fill in both parkas descriptions. And my fluffing awesome vest is 800. So I'm guessing that my vest is warmer than sub zero coat? Hmm

I inquired quite a bit about this before ordering yesterday. I was told that the sub zero has a double liner as well as 2x's the down. I had asked if it made the coat more puffy and less sleek. I was told the jackets were identical except for the amount of insulation and did not change or affect the appearance of the coat. I will receive it tomorrow. Hopefully it is a keeper!

Actually the 650 refers to the quality of the down. Both jackets are 650 fill but the *subzero has double. Down is confusing!

The number refers to the quality of the down. 650 can be warmer than 800 if there is physically more down in the 650 jacket. 800 needs less physical down to be warm, therefor the jacket can be thinner but warmer. Look for the sizing of the panels on the jacket or best, the bigger the panel the more down is there.
