Haven't been on Denali but have checked out the L6 in person. I felt that the arms seemed a little bit underfilled (especially near the joint). My Peak XV (og version) that I brought a long for comparison felt warmer

Yeah, it will probably be warm enough. Another alternative is: http://featheredfriends.com/frontpoint-down-jacket.html

The Peak xvs aremonsters tho. Super hard to compress and heavy compared to my Nilas.

I've been eyeballing featherfriends hard but its too pricey. I ended up getting the L6, ill test it out in the North Dakotan winter this week.

Why do you need another parka? I used the nilas on denali and would happily bring it again. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
