Better than a puffy

P has become enamored of one item of clothing that he takes on all backpacking trips now. When we were in Peru, he bought a nice locally knitted alpaca hoodie for about 15 dollars that he now uses instead of a puffy down jacket.  It's just as warm, packs just as small, and with its hood it is more convenient as well.  And it's just as comfy when he folds it under his head for a pillow at night.  A great thing to buy the next time you are in the local market of Pisac, or Cusco, or Huaraz!
