Avant Featherless Hooded Jacket
A new style from Marmot, the Women's Avant Featherless Hooded Jacket is impressively lightweight, reliably warm, and perfectly packable, making it great for any adventure. The lightweight synthetic insulation is kept in place by secure baffle construction, meaning you won't be subject to any cold spots from migrating insulation, and it will continue to insulate you even when wet. The face fabric is durable enough for this jacket to be worn as a standalone piece on dry days, yet is sleek enough to slip comfortably under a shell or heavier jacket, and the elastic binding on the hood and cuffs keeps them securely in place as you move. Marmot's signature Angel-Wing Movement allows full articulation of your arms without the body of the jacket riding up, adding comfort and mobility, and the drawcord hem finishes off the package by sealing out any cold wind from entering into your layers and giving you a chill.

- Q & A
Boxy but Warm
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Size Bought: Large
- Height: 5'8"
- Weight: 175lbs
I should point out that I am more on the curvy side with larger hips and chest, smaller waist and long torso, hard to find items that fit. As most jackets for women go, looks very fitted and flattering on the model online and when you try it on it is boxy and big/small in all the wrong places. Arms are huge but good length for those with longer arms. I usually wear a L or XL and the XL was way too big around the chest/waist.
That being said, compared to most brands out there this jacket fit better than the typical boxy and short look. Overall, it was very warm and good even when it was raining. I was out in a light drizzle for about an hour and never got wet or cold. I got the Mallard Green color and it is AMAZING.
