Product Description Item No.   10280797

The Marmot Men's Fordham Vest is a down vest to warm your center in a variety of settings. The simple, classic look features wide baffles stuffed with 700 fill power down with down defender, allowing it to perform better in not only cold conditions, but wet ones as well. Down defender is a treatment applied to the down, allowing it to repell moisture, in case you get caught in some unexpected adverse weather. While the vest won't do anything to protect your arms, it'll certainly heat up your core, where your beautiful, beating heart will pump red hot blood out to your extremities. My apologies if that was too gruesome. Flannel underneath, snap up the front placket and tuck your hands into the pockets for a late fall or early winter walk into the woods.

Marmot MemBrain

Marmot MemBrain
Marmot MemBrain fabrics utilize a polyurethane laminate that perfectly balances performance for anything nature can throw at you. Waterproof, breathable and durable, the external protection coupled with minimal internal condensation adds up to pure comfort.

Marmot Down Defender

Marmot Down Defender
Marmot Down Defender helps prevent down from clumping when exposed to water or moisture. This allows it to keep its loft, which equates to greater insulation. Nothing will stop the specially treated, highly water-resistant down from trapping warm air next to your body.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good vest Happy with the vest. As with most of the moment stuff great quality. Colour seems pretty true to the photo, I like it anyway. It’s puffy when you bend forward but it’s a down vest and as another reviewer said the press studs to make it easier manoeuvering around.Did turn out a little more expensive by the time shipping and money rate adjusted for Australia but it’s hard to find a jacket like this here

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Core Warmth I am about 6' tall and 216 lbs and the extra large fit very well with a thick hoody or sweat shirt. The vest needs a zipper and snap combination. And another drop pocket on the inside. Only one on the left side room enough for a wallet. As I am right-handed this is inconvienant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid vest I’m pretty happy with this thing. I’ve been wearing it for a couple of weeks. I got the deep olive color and I love it. It’s thick warm and perfect size Medium... I’m 5’10, 185 lbs. It works perfect with a hooded jacket underneath for extra warmth. Zipper pockets are key.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm I bought this for myself and love it! It's the warmest vest I own,plenty of pockets,,and rain bounces off it. Well worth the money. I wish I had more colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT Vest! I think that design is also very good with very warm comfort.I think it's a good point that it is light and warm, so it's easy to move.I recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful! The fit and finish are top notch. This is the nicest vest that I have encountered. The durability of the fabric and the fact that it is waterproof set it apart. The cut is perfect because it stops just below the waist, many vests are cut too long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vest for real life! As the title states, this is a great vest for real life. I own several of Marmot's "Zeus" vest which I absolutely love for their fit, comfort, and versatility but wish the lightweight material was more durable. This vest is much more durable. It's made from a heavier material which wont rip in the woods or in the yard doing chores. I've put it through it's paces and it's still in excellent shape. It's heavier than the "Zeus" vest but the weight gives it a feeling of substance and more warmth. It's also waterproof and windproof which makes less worried about weather on long hikes. It's warm, cozy, and well made. I do wish the fit was more athletic as it's a bit wider than I prefer, but I suppose it appeals to larger audience. I also wish it had a zipper in addition to the metal snaps. Regardless of my criticism, if something were to happen to it, I would immediately buy another.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Reasonable Vest I bought this in hopes of adding to a down vest I have had for some years. Sadly, this was not to happen. This vest lacks in the insulation arena where it should perform nicely given the down fill power. This is a decent vest but not one that I would buy for the characteristics I look for in a down vest.
