Is this an East Coast fashion? I have never seen or heard of a down skirt before--but I'm a California girl--what do we know about really cold weather? I can't imagine wearing so much down with my hot flashes.
I don't believe it is just East Coast, since many of the outdoor companies offer them: Mountain Hardwear and Smartwool, off the top of my head. And my down skirt is from Skhoop, which is in Alaska. I don't wear it on a regular basis, though -- just occasionally after skiing.
