Fits like a Medium.

  • Gender: Female
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 7"
    Weight: 130 lbs
    Size Purchased: medium

I was really worried about getting a Medium for my wife after reading the reviews and seeing gals who are shorter than her and only 10 lbs heavier having issues.

Nope, not any issues at all. She is 5' 7" and 130 lbs. The jacket fits her perfectly.

I usually carry the kitchen sink so to speak when we hike or travel. I am like the overly prepared mom who has the purse that has the weirdest essentials in it. I carry almost two of everything. Her stuff and mine.

This jacket isn't as lightweight as the MHW ghost whisperer that she tried on, but it is definitely a better made jacket and just slightly less compact when packed away.

It has the Pertex Quantum nylon which I think is more durable than the Ghost whisperer fabric, it has hood cinches in both the front and back of the hood to make it fit better than the Ghost Whisperers hood, it also has a chest pocket and don't forgot the 900 fill down.

I am not tying to be unfair to MHW because I think they are going for an insulated jacket to be the very lightest they can make and Marmot is giving you a jacket that is light but still having features and durability you'd expect on a jacket selling for over $300.

I tried the MHW for her and she didn't like the color. While I was debating getting her an all black one these Quasars dropped down in price as were the Ghost Whisperers.

I knew what was the better jacket for longevity and which one wasn't as wet shiny looking.

If you are concerned with weight and compact size. Go with the MHW Ghost Whisperer.
If you expect some features on a jacket and want it to last more than a few years and not have a really shiny look. This Quasar is for you.

Runs Small

  • Fit: Runs small
  • Height: 5' 5"
    Weight: 145 lbs
    Size Purchased: Medium

The weight is great, and I love that it comes with a hood. However, I usually wear a medium -- and I ordered a medium and have to return it. It's far too small.

Also, you can see the down through the exterior -- should that matter to someone. I am disappointed -- it seemed like such a great buy!

fit changes

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

I have this jacket without the hood and have loved it over the last 4 years. I realized I needed the hood for some mountaineering and reordered in the same size. the sizing has changed, the M is about 3 inches narrower in the shoulders and torso and the arms that were previously plenty roomy for layers are no longer. I'm a size 8, 5'4" and had to return for a L, which just seems silly.

Don't get a light colored jacket.

  • Gender: Female

  • Fit: True to size

I was really excited about this jacket until I put it on. I ordered it in " "Mandarin" because I wanted to wear it on cold days while I ride my bike to campus. Unfortunately, the black goose feathers can been seen through the material. I looked like an orange Dalmatian, or someone that eats greasy food. I was really bummed out about this because I love the color and it was a really nice down jacket.

Don't get a light colored jacket.

Fortunately looking like a Dalmation does not matter when you are climbing a mountain. This jacket is intended to keep you comfortable in extreme environments. That is precisely what it does. :)

super lightweight

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

this jacket is super lightweight yet incredibly warm. i am 5'3, 125 pounds and usually wear a small in marmot jackets. this fit well in a small as well. I usually wear a long sleeve shirt or light sweater under this. i think a hooded sweatshirt would probably be too bulky. the only criticism i have is that it is a little short, so when you sit down or bend over and the jacket is zipped up, it always rides up, allowing cold air to get in.

I'm 5"2, 105 lbs, and typically wear an XS. I'd like to be able to wear a base and light mid under this, but still have room to add a fleece if necessary. This says "regular fit" -- do you think an XS would be too small for that much layering?

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

Anytime I leave the house, this jacket gets stuffed into the bottom of my ski bag, hiking bag, and even grocery bag. It's so light and squish -able yet when you need it, packs a punch of warmth. It's indestructible (see squishing above), and resists tears from trees, ski edges, etc. 900-fill keeps you warm and toasty all day long.

Great mid-warmth jacket

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

I was looking for a warm but still light weight down jacket. This jacket fit well and looks good but was not as warm as I was looking for. I'm 5'2", 115lbs (broad shoulders/chest) and the S fit well. I got the green and loved the color. I ordered several down jackets and decided to return this one and go with the Norr�na Lyngen Lightweight Down 750 Jacket, the Montbell Alpine Light Down Parka was the runner up. Both of those were warmer and not too much heavier. If I wanted a jacket somewhere between ultra light and warm I would have definitely kept this.
