I bought this jacket for Christmas and got it here at Sierra Trading Post because the price was so much better than other sites. I ended up getting it for 53% off!!! I wanted black but went with a Large Grey because this was the one on sale and I am happy with it. I read reviews all of the time where people haven't really tested the gear well or haven't gotten out in cold environments yet. Well, I bought this jacket specifically for winter snowshoeing in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA). It will be used as my base camp jacket (while I am not moving and sweating). My friends and I pull toboggans in and camp every year in January or February. Minnesota gets very cold! Our trip has yet to happen this year while I am writing this review so it isn't tested for that but we have been in a cold spell here in central Minnesota and I have had it out ice fishing. The coldest it has been in is -35 F. It does very well and is the warmest jacket I have had to date. Its wind resistance is lacking but I expected that either way. Most down jackets aren't known for wind reistence. I have a shell that I can put on if it is windy enough to penetrate the jacket. One thing I will say is that the hood is pretty large. I read a review from another that said the hood was too big and I agree with that assessment. I am not worried about it because my other layers all have hoods but it would be nice to have a more functional hood. If I wear a brimmed hat with it, it won't fall down near my eyes so I will make it work if I need it. Overall I am very happy with Marmot in general and this product has been great!! Very warm!!!
