Recently went on a vest buying binge and picked up the Marmot Caldera, Marmot Variant, MHW Thermostatic and Ortovox Andermatt. All these vests have worked out pretty well but this one is my favorite so far (closely followed by the Ortovox). They all basically have different functions in terms of how... Read More

    I like Marmot gear a lot and this is no exception when it comes to being well made. I am 6'2" 200 lbs and I bought the large. It is definitely on the baggy and big side. I will be returning.

    A little ticked about this one- read the reviews here suggesting it was "very warm". Perhaps these people live in Florida, but this vest is not warm enough for even a 45 degree day in Bend, Oregon with a long sleeve shirt underneath. I'm very athletic, and even while moving quickly today, covering my boat, storing kayaks, prepping the yard and outdoor gear for Winter, I was cold. Not good considering this is only Fall. The back is completely uninsulated, and the front is barely so. Might be okay for brisk running, but not daily life in a mountain town, even in Fall or Spring. I'm a 44 year old super athletic and muscular 205 lb guy, so it's not like I'm a 70 year old scrawny guy out there expecting too much warmth from a piece of tech gear. It's going back, to join the Marker Torch vest I already returned. I am going to suck it up and pony up $150 for a TNF thermoball, which is probably what I really need.

    Nice light weight vest. The front shell material is extra shiny but the fit is good (XXL).

    I haven't gotten to put the Variant Vest into action yet, but I have tested it inside and it's very warm in the front torso yet remains very breathable. Marmot has been a favorite brand of mine for many years, and they continue to produce quality outdoor goods. The Variant Vest will serve well as a mid-layer for backcountry skiing and as an all-around alpine piece of equipment.

    Nice vest- stretch feature adds great value on the slopes or off.
