The Marmot Men's Quasar Jacket is a packable down jacket for staying warm on cold weather backpacking trips. The Quasar compresses into it's own chest pocket for stuffing into your pack without taking up a ton of space. The baffles have been packed with 900-fill down for incredible warmth without the weight at under nine ounces. The Angel-Wing Movement allows you to spread your arms, move, and reach with ease whether you're climbing or just having a bit of a stretch. The Pertex Quantum fabric is lightweight and durable to protect the down and is treated with a durable water repellent to deter a light rain or snow.
FEATURES of the Marmot Men's Quasar Jacket
Ultralight and Durable 10 Denier Pertex Quantum fabric
I have this jacket in black. The black is a bit shiny for my personal tastes but the jacket is amazing. Extremely light weight and warm to about 30' or so. Any colder and I will layer it with no problem. This is a great layer for outdoor sports including skiing and snowmobiling or great as stand alone for the city or air travel (as it is very light and compressable).
I was looking for a down jacket that was lightweight (under 10oz) and was really warm. This jacket fits the bill and looks amazing on top of it. I have yet to wear this on hikes but I have worn it on really cold days and has kept me comfortably warm. I have also received complements from random strangers on how nice it looks. With this new jacket Marmot has become one of favorite brands.
