Quasar Nova Hooded Down Jacket

Layer your Marmot Men's Quasar Nova Hooded Down Jacket under your shell and hop in line for first chair. This midweight puffy makes the perfect layer for a frigid day on the slopes, stuffed with toasty and highly compressible 800-fill goose down. Flip up the hood when the winds start to howl, or rock it on its own when you post up for lunch on a chilly spring hike.

  • A midweight puffy jacket for wintertime fun
  • 800-fill goose down is warm and compressible
  • Nylon outer fabric can withstand wear and tear
  • Lightweight construction is easy to layer under a shell
  • Hood adds an extra layer of defense

Hate the Hood

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Medium

This jacket doesnt have the water resistant down or ripstop fabric of other jackets in its class, but may make up for that by being signifcantly warmer (I tried a few others...including the surprisingly cold MH ghost whisperer). The baffles are extra puffy and fabric blocks wind fairly well.

Its an outstanding jacket for sedentary outdoors or just walking in temps over 40F (maybe lower, depending on your metabolism, etc). Unless you size up to a baggier fit, the binding armpits dont make it suitable for climbing...which is why such a big, sloppy (non-adjustable), helmet compatible hood doesnt make sense. I'm not a climber, so, in hindsight, I'd buy the less expensive non-hood version and just wear a fleece hoody underneath, w/ a thick windstopper beanie under that.

I'm 5'11"/175 lbs and the medium fits pretty snug, with just enough room for a base and thermal layer, underneath.

Perfect

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

Snug tailored fit, great colour and super warm for the light weight. Just what I wanted.

Quality seems good but

    Fit was too boxy. Bummed because i liked the jacket but looked weird.
