I bought this because a Gearhead said it was the warmest Marmot down jacket with out a hood. I was told warmer than the Quasar that is 800 fill. I have used it several times on windy days slightly under 30 degrees and it was warm and comfortable but I do not see it going much lower. This 700 fill jacket is not even remotely as warm as my north face nupse 700 fill that wears well into the negative temperatures. I do like the Marmot fit better than most Mfg's though.

This jacket is very good looking and comfortable but seriously lacking insulation. The neck could be a little more substantial too. This jacket is a great mid layer that I have used between 38 and 50 degrees on windy days. This jacket would be better if the pillows had something in them and were not so flat. Like another reviewer said the crease from shipping does not come out, at least not yet.

Unlike most Marmot jackets on me this one pulls hard on the underarm(chest/lats) and is very uncomfortable. I would gladly give up angel wing movement(if that is the cause) to get some comfort. I have the Alpinist Marmot fleece which is a tighter cut and that is far more comfortable. This jacket also does nothing to block the slightest breeze. It is a fair amount of fleece and a nice color but so uncomfortable that I stopped wearing it after the 6 time.
It was a little more comfortable as a zip in to the Tamarack jacket but still would not consider wearing it for more than an hour.
I own several Marmot jackets and this is the only one I would NOT recommend.

This is a great jacket as long as you do not plan on wearing a pack.
So far held up in windy hard rain several times!
Only negative is that I wish there were more pockets and the powder skirt was removable.
It would be nice if there was a descent mid layer to zip in (not the warmlight fleece, poor fit).
