I love this jackets. In my closet of 20+ jackets, this has become my go to jacket on cold days--warm, comfortable and light. Runs true to size, as a large fits a 42-44 inch chest. Love Marker products--well made with some really nice features.

I replaced my Marmot Zeus with this jacket because the Zeus was falling apart, as lightweight jackets do. This jacket is much warmer and loftier than the Zeus. I appreciate the hood as it keeps me warmer. I have worn the jacket with a shirt into the teens so far this winter and it has kept me warm. The zipper is nice and the materials feel of nice quality.

What a warm jacket!!. Ordered large. I am 6 ft & 210lbs. Fits perfect. If I was 215-220, XL would have been the order. Quality is excellent. I have a Montbell Highland jacket which I love, but it is much lighter and good to about 25*. This jacket is good down to -0-. Extremely light and warm. Wear it every day to the office when it's cold out, which it has been here in NE Penna the last few weeks. Was -1 yesterday, and still was warm. Only wearing a dress shirt and T-shirt under it. Go get one!

I wanted to love this jacket, but it just doesn't measure up to expectations. Its a lot thinner than it looks. In fact some sections feel like they have little to no down fill in them. Its a nice looking jacket, but I will return it as I need something warm and this is too thin for colder temps.
I've not worn it in the rain but specs indicate it is neither waterproof or water resistant. As its made of polyester material it may be somewhat water resistant. "How puffy" is a bit more difficult to answer--not so puffy you can't wear a shell over it and not so puffy you look like the "Pillsbury dough-boy" when worn by itself.. I found it to be quite warm--to warm if your engaged in some physical activity like hiking or skiing--very good if your attending an outdoor event as a spectator.

I'm guessing that it is not water proof and i did not notice any special resistant layer. It was not that puffy. But seemed plenty warm.

I just ordered the coat about a week ago. If I were you, I would only order a medium. We are the same height, but you are 20 pounds lighter than I am and you'd probably be swimming in the large. The coat and sleeve length is just right in medium size for me at 5'10" Hope this helps.

I guess it really depends on how much clothing you wear under the jacket. I doesn't get that cold in Norcal. With an undershirt and long sleeve shirt I was swimming in the coat. I wear a 38R suit and have a 38 inch chest. I'm 5'10" and 155 and like a more fitted look/feel. This jacket was too big for me in the chest and shoulders. The arm length seemed fine. If they had the color I wanted in small I would have ordered that one. Hope that helps. Good luck.

I am 5'11" & 150 lbs. and I ordered a small, it fits great and has room for layers underneath. i was afraid the sleeves might not be long enough for me since it was a small that is not the case.
