    I seem to remember reading somewhere that the shells are made and (mostly) stitched together in China and then sent back to the UK where they're stuffed with down.

    Can anybody confirm (or correct me if that's wrong)?

    At £99 whats it matter, the way to tell if it's a sheffield jacket or a chineses jacket is that the word extreme is in CAPITALS if its from sheffield and lower case if its from China.

    I was under the impression that the only thing that happens in the UK is that the stuff sack gets put in the left pocket and the hood gets attatched as well as the cardboard labels.

    I've got a chinese one and it's snuggly warm.

    Did anyone else find the cord lock on the neck tighening bit ( no idea what it`s called the adjuster at the back of the neck!) doesn`t work? We bought 2 jackets, different size and color and neither of them worked.
