Marmot's Solus Featherless Jacket is constructed using 3M Thinsulate insulation - an innovative down alternative. It looks, acts and feels like down, even working when wet. The Solus features more insulation than the Featherless, making it even warmer.
The Solus Featherless Jacket looks like a down jacket and feels like one, but is in fact filled with brand new Marmot Featherless insulation. This synthetic fiber insulation is much easier to clean than down and still keeps you warm when wet. The jacket has elastic cuffs on the sleeves and hem and is compatible with Marmot ZippinTM jackets.
The big news here is the insulation. After 2 years of development, Marmot have created the next generation of synthetic insulation. The Solus Featherless Jacket is scientifically engineered with 3M Thinsulate to replace natural down. It looks like down and acts like down but while traditional down loses warmth when wet, the Featherless insulation keeps on performing.
The Solus Featherless Jacket is very similar to the Featherless Jacket but with larger baffles and more grams of insulation, ultimately making it a warmer jacket. It also has lined pockets which added all together does make the jacket a little heavier than the featherless Jacket.
Because of the insulation, the jacket packs tight and travels light. Plus, its sustainably-produced materials are bluesign approved. There's a pull drawcord on the hem and both the cuffs and hem have an elasticated binding. The jacket has 3 pockets in total - two hand warmer pockets and 1 internal storage pocket.
Overall a great looking jacket that will keep you warm even when wet.
