Why do you need a padded jacket on a trek?
A padded jacket is worn as the outermost layer, especially after reaching the campsite after the sun comes down.
Here’s where a padded jacket comes in:
1) It is designed to trap your body heat between its layers and keep your core warm in the extreme temperatures.
2) It cannot be replaced by sweaters or bulky jackets because of the huge volume/weight trade off. To provide the same amount of warmth a padded/down jacket can provide, you would have to wear 2-3 sweaters, which is not feasible on a Himalayan trek, where you’re trekking as minimally as possible.
3) Because of the nature of the filling of the padded jackets, they are inherently light, compact and warm.
