Country mouse, city mouse.
Mountain girls are more than capable of getting into some city style, but there's no reason to ditch the technical chops of Marmot gear just so you can turn heads on the street. The company made its name designing outerwear for the mountains, sure, but gear like the Alexie Women's Down Jacket takes some of that alpine-ready tech and packs it into a sleek, stylish package that's made to cruise from ski town streets to Fifth Avenue without skipping a beat. Details like contrasting baffle designs, a removable faux fur ruff, and front snaps set the Alexie apart from the drab crowd, while the 700-fill down and water-repellent Down Defender treatment elevate it above standard city wear. Marmot skipped the zippered hand pockets common on its tech gear in favor of flapped hand pockets but did include a zippered internal pocket for your phone, and it finished the Alexie off with a fleece collar lining to save your chin and fleece-lined internal cuffs to keep your wrists cozy and drafts locked out.

I love this jacket! I needed to replace my puffer and wanted something more fitted. I have an athletic build and very broad shoulders and a larger bust and am tall (5'11'). This fit like a dream and I have plenty of layering room. I would NOT ski in this jacket as it does not have a powder skirt and the bottom is a little loose, but for everyday use and maybe maybe groomers.
Wish I would have liked it better!

The jacket is much shinier than appears on site. Is a cute style and fit, but I do think the shininess made it look cheap. I ordered my normal size small and it does fit well, however I wouldn't have minded it a bit longer. I am returning.
This is a fantastic jacket. Not only is it super warm, but it fits like a glove. I'm typically between a small and medium and I went with medium which was a good choice. It is so warm but not only that, for being so puffy, it really flatters your lines. The shirt cut on the bottom gives a little extra flair and the hood is nice and deep. I highly recommend this jacket!
