help me choose!!!
Same target specs I think and nothing really substantive between them on a technical basis, so fit is the dominant criteria. General 'feel' too perhaps.
You're the only person who can decide about that sort of thing
I've been happy with my Neutrino endurance if that is any help.
Actually I seem to remember the fits being plausibly similar too.
The biggest difference is probably that RAB have (fairly extensive) American distribution while I don't think ME have.
The hooded zero jackets confuses me very slightly because the differences vs the vega are so small, and the more water/windproof outer fabric seems a handy thing to have. Maybe the weight difference is larger in practice.
Is there any good reason for the fascination with UK down jackets? There's plenty of brands who are much easier to get over there than here (Montbell for one) and no obvious quality differences either way. Its really very much easier making sensible decisions if you can see what you're getting. Especially cf fit which does matter here.
They do both make very competent down products. Nothing stunning compared to real specalists mind.
(They both were that at one stage but have now massively diversified and basically produce very wide ranges of nice things.).
Anyway, trying to choose between two broadly identical products one of which is easily available in the USA and one which isn't really doesn't seem very hard to me
