I searched and searched for a lightweight down puffy.
Patagonia, Mountain Hardwear, Arcteryx and Marmot's. I tried them all.
I like the Marmot but it doesn't fit me through the chest and back. It is 44" through the chest. I am just a bit over that and this thing was a bit more than snug. The 'Angel Wing' shoulders leave a ton of room in the shoulders which could be looked at as a good thing or a bad thing. It is a strange look when you raise your arms and you have the shoulders sticking up.
I ended up getting a MHW Ghost Whisperer because the fit is better for me, though I prefer the Marmot's quality and little touches it has.
The hood cinch, the 900 fill down, the Pertex 10 denier nylon, the lining inside the jacket and it even has a chest pocket.
I would have gone with the Quasar if it fit.
Just an fYI.. The red one has black Marmot lettering on the chest, shoulder and a Marmot logo on the back of the shoulder. It looks good.
