Birds of a feather.
Snowboarder turned skier, you might not be successfully blending in with your new peers, but the synthetic down of the Men's Marmot Featherless Hooded Jacket does a damn-near perfect imitation. Marmot teamed up with 3M and their Thinsulate technology to scientifically engineer the first synthetic insulation with the ability to mimic 700-fill power down. Thanks to a loose fill, this jacket disguises itself so perfectly that you'll forget what it really is as you're stuffing it into its own inner stuff pocket. Its soft, supple warmth will keep you warm on the long lift-ride, no matter how wet the snow, where you'll find you can bond with others at the resort regardless of what's under your feet or in your jacket.

This is just a quick review for those considering picking this jacket up. Bought it to fill heavier jacket gap in the winter wardrobe. Won't comment on warmth and durability since it is too early for that. Fit wise, I am 5'6" and the small fits well. I almost wish the hem was one inch longer, but than it wouldn't look as good. Wrist elastic is a bit looser than I would like as well, but when layered it won't matter. Pockets are nice, and what's best about it is that it doesn't have feathers poking through.
