The gloves are ok - I guess I am spoiled by my Hestras. They are a bit snug and harder to pull onto my rather mid-to-small size hands than expected. The pull loop broke the second i pulled on it - ripped right out of poor quality stitching. I would not recommend these gloves at these prices . My hands were warm the 1.5 days i used them but i kept them in my backpack for the rest of the week - just too hard to put on

I bought this for under a tech. shell for skiing and it works well for that. Having not had a down jacket in some time, I am a bit confused on this product though.

It is a 700 fill - which I assume is on the better side of 'warmth' but I am concerned that the 'puffyness' of this jacket went from OK to very compact after a one-week ski trip where I used this to ski and as my going-out jacket. It is still warm but....flat. Leading to next concern which is there is a constant stream of feathers leaking out of almost every section! They get stuck to other clothing, etc. I had to vaccum the seats before returning my rental car! I swear.

Finally, the pockets almost ALWAYS grabs outer fabric layer going up or down. Sigh.

I have other Marmot products I love but only like this one.
