The Megawatt Jacket is made from high quality goose down and quick drying Polartec Alpha insulation to give you the warmth and breathability you need during active pursuits.

Marmot says:

Double down on the new world order-the Megawatt Jacket has the unique feature of double the insulation for active use in cold conditions.

This hybrid jacket boasts the supreme thermal regulation of Polartec Alpha-stuffed throughout the entire jacket-and the unmatchable warmth of a water-resistant, 800-fill-power goose down-strategically placed in the torso and attached, adjustable hood. Throw in a wicking mesh lining and Pack Pockets, and the Megawatt Jacket is a powerhouse of winter warmth.

The Megawatt Jacket is the perfect type of jacket for wearing during alpine climbing and ski touring. This is mainly due to it's insulation. It's filled with a mix of 800 fill goose down in the hood and torso with Polartec Alpha insulation spread throughout. This means it's a lot more breathable than normal down filled jackets so can be used for winter active pursuits, without feeling like you have to take it off. It's fast drying, highly packable and provides high warmth for a low weight.

It features a helmet compatible hood with a drawcord adjustment, a two way zipper to fit with a harness and a drawcord adjustable hem to keep the cold out. Soft micro fleece lines the 2 zippered hand warmer pockets and 2 mesh inner pockets. The cuffs feature interior lycra-bound inners with thumb loops for preventing the jacket sleeves from riding up. It's a super soft and comfortable jacket that you won't want to take it off!

The Alpha-and-down hood is designed to fit under a helmet; it has a low-profile rear toggle that pulls the sides away from the face to optimize peripheral vision. The two-way zipper allows you to open the jacket from the bottom and access a climbing harness. Cozy microfleece lines the hand pockets and two big, mesh inner pockets (one is open-topped, so it fits a water bottle) keep snacks and gadgets from freezing. - See more at: http://www.backpacker.com/gear/apparel/jackets/category-insulated/marmot-megawatt/#sthash.KwwyXUCc.dpuf
