Stay warm, look classy.

Perfect! It is warm, lightweight and very comfortable. It has many pockets and different features. It is wonderful. Want to buy another one for my father.
I'm 5'11" 195lbs, 40 chest, and I find that the medium is _almost_ snug with a heavy sweater on (some people report wearing just t-shirts in these things!).
The jacket is a true Parka, an impenetrable fortress of warmth. It has more pockets than I know what to do with (inside and out) and tons of little features that make it a joy to wear.
Marmot's Membrain fabric is truly breathable and waterproof. It is durable enough to carry branches and logs for firewood, but I wouldn't trust it as a jacket for any regular or heavy labour/abrasion. I'm not worried about a little rain soaking my insulation, the biggest concern is overheating and sweating in this parka. If you are out shoveling snow, or snowshoeing up a winding trail, you are probably going to overheat and soak the jacket from the inside out. Remember to vent the jacket -- the two way zipper is great for this (and for trips to the outhouse), just raise the bottom zipper up and you're good to go!
It kept me warm for -27C conditions camping in Algonquin Park, although I used a lighter (and cheaper) jacket for heavy work and by the sparky fire.
It's main competition would probably be the North Face McMurdo and the technical Canada Goose Jackets.
Stop looking you found it!!
this is a super warm parka and you just can't argue with the way it looks in my opinion!!
has a lot of pockets, can almost leave pack at home :P neck seals nice and tight but not so tight that its constricting and is very well insulated
only downside is no insulated pockets for your hands (but let's face it that is getting very rare these days)
plus on a other note the two top front pockets are dummies. struck me as kinda wierd but it has has hand pockets behind the dummies

Hi ! I'm a woman, 5'6" and 145-50 lbs. My chest is 105cm with light fleecy and two light shirts. Would the medium be the right size?. PS My arms are on the long side, a 83cm length is good for me. Thanks
I was in the Marmot store in SFO. Tried it on. Over the next hour, adjusting it etc. I loved it! Especially the way the hood secured around my face. Many parkas simply don't do this -allowing cold to get in around your chin/cheeks-. Anyway, I bought it, went outside and the wind caught one of the collar flaps and it really smacked me in the kisser. The hook part of the Velcro cheese grated me. I turned around and returned it. Just me.
