Hello backpacking.net

I can't choose between these two gears of light down jacket/mid layer.

It will mostly be used for hiking/camping in Canadian winter as mid layer,
or use it as light jacket for urban settings for early winter, spring and falls.

The problem is, luckily I received both as a gift for christmas laugh

1. Mountain hardwear Ghost whisperer hooded down (Black) $300

2. Canada goose hybridge jacket (Black) non hood $530

Both are similar, 800 down light jacket, with similar purpose.

Yet unlike ghost whisperer which is so popular,
hybridge jacket is not too popular probably because of the price?

Also ghost whisperer is water resistant with q shield down,
whereas hybridge is only dwr coated.

Design wise I like the goose better judging by the pictures .
Function wise I think MH GW is supposed to be better, not sure though.

I want to keep both but it would be a waste of money so I plan on refunding one for some cash.

Which one do you think I should keep?

I already tried the ghost whisperer and i love it,
surprisingly warm in -7 celcius with one or two inner layers.
Have not yet tried hybridge because it is still on shipping status.

I just want your opinion on both laugh
