Marmot's Quasar Down Jacket uses 85grams of the very highest quality 900 Fill Power down (Curiously the same amount as in the Quasar Hoody) to produce a jacket that offers high warmth to weight ration. Despite the focus on light weight it has a full range of features; twin handwarmer pockets and external chest pocket, the cuffs are bound with an elasticated binding and the jacket stuffs into one of the pockets revealing a webbing loop which can be used to secure the jacket to a pack or belt etc..
The Yellow Vapour colour is translucent - so you can see the down through it, this creates dark patches on the jacket which you either like or you don't. Being comprised of super light Pertex Quantum fabric the jacket has a shiny outer rather than a matt finish.
