Hooded down smocks

Hi folks,
I've recently moved here from the UK and unluckily for me, the one box that went missing during shipping had all my climbing/mountaineering kit in it.

Anyway, not worried about the hardwear but my 2 favourite bits of kit in the whole world were in the box. A RAB Peak smock and a Patagonia down sweater pullover hoody.

Neither of these are made any more and they are like rocking horse shit to get hold of. So, does anyone have a Patagonia one they fancy selling me in an xl?

I doubt it so I'm on the lookout for a recommendation for a down smock with a kangaroo pocket and a helmet compatible hood. In the UK we have Alpkit who are outstanding but no hood. (My RAB peak smock was a specially made version with a hood attached otherwise they come without them).

I know PHD do one (Yukon) but very expensive as I'll only be using it a few times during the year.

Thanks in advance, Den
