Verified Buyer Reviewed by None from New Mexico on Sunday, January 18, 2015
I found myself needing something warm and nice enough to wear out in a city. I own almost nothing other than MARMOT. I Still have good functioning gear from MARMOT. This is an extremely light jacket. The shell is a a very tight fabric, that feels like silk. Being an 800 fill goose down, It does not take a lot of down when it is of this quality. Therefore the jacket does not make one feel like that Pilsbury Dough Boy. It fits perfectly under my MARMOT Gortex should the weather get really nasty. I have jet to feel the wind strippping any of the heat away. It again is as a result of the outer shell being tight. I would probably preferred to have a removable hood, It fits nicely into the hood of my Gortex. They do fit together, as if designed to do so. Superb warmth, excellent fit, performs it's function well and it has a good visual appeal. A large inner pocket, outer chest pocket and nice fleece hand warming pockets.
Absolutely the best price for the product. The quality exceeds 3X the the cost. I have been wearing and using Marmot Outdoor Products for well over 20 years. I work, teach, and guide in the outdoors. I am hard on gear and I demand the best. I cannot afford failure in the backcountry. (66 yr.old male)
