    Details

    An insulated mid-layer that packs toasty core warmth to your ski outfit or everyday wear.

    When winter temperatures really start dropping, the Marmot Men's Guides Down Vest offers additional core warmth to keep you nice and toasty. This vest 700-fill down insulation is light, lofty, and highly compressible, and is treated with water-resistant Down Defender so it doesn't clump up and stop insulating if it's exposed to moisture. The durable polyester shell and lining have water-resistant coatings as well, so you're doubly protected against wet weather.

    The Guides Vest features a smooth DriClime lined chin guard for against-the-skin comfort, and a wind flap behind the front zipper seals out blustery weather so you don't feel a chill. An elastic drawcord at the hem keeps in warmth. And two handwarmers have a soft interior to keep you hands cozy as well as warm.

    Good but not great

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I'm 5'11, 180lbs, 34 waist, bought L in black.

    pros: super light, super warm for a vest, great value.

    cons: I'm not an athlete, but to me, waist of the vest is still too big, looks baggy; also (not important), the black color has a blue hint..

    Met requirements

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    Great vest, very light, I'm 5'11", 220lbs, and use 36W pants, the L fits great

    It's not very cold here, but at 30's with 20's windchill does a great job.

    I expected it to be more warm, compared with another Nautica down vest I got in a flea market for $5, is not, but is not that "puffy", so that's give you more room for a rain jacket and doesn't male you look like you are going to a polar expedition.

    I gave it 4 stars just because of the color, not a perfect black, and that it wasn't as warm as I expected, other than that, great deal!

    I'm now a vest person

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    First vest ever ordered, now I'm a believer. Warm, check. Compressible, check. Don't look like I'm wearing Arctic survival gear, check. Is it big, that is up for debate, its not an athletic fir but I don't think its meant to be. I'm 6'3 and it is slightly below my waist. I use it almost daily, very comfortable and warm. Marmot makes a great down vest, I'll be back in the future for something similar...

    Met requirements.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    I have ordered Marmot Guides Down Vest for alpine climbing purposes. Really lightweight! Regular fit, but I guess it?s something between regular and slim, if you have athletic shapes.
