A refined classic: simple, lightweight, compact insulation that guides carry with them almost everywhere they go.

- GearX.com

The Marmot Women's Guides Down Sweater is the classic classic ultralight jacket that can turn up the heat between climbs or as you run errands around town. The jacket's super-cozy 750-fill down insulation is quilted into a low-profile shell that is specifically designed to fit a women's body-no unnecessary or unappealing bulk here. Thanks to the Angel-wing movement, you still have full range of motion in the arms, which prevents the jacket from riding up when you start getting active. A DWR coating repels precipitation if you're caught in a drizzle; a wind flap behind the front zipper, elastic cuffs with hook-and-loop straps, and a draw cord hem work together to seal out drafts. The Guides Down Sweater compacts into its internal zip pocket, so with this in your pack you are ready at a moment's notice for whatever Mother Nature decides to throw at you.

The Marmot Women's Guides Down Sweater is a puffy down jacket for spending winter outdoors. The Guides Down begins with a 100% polyester mini ripstop fabric to protect the 700 fill power down with Down Defender on the inside. The 700 fill power down brings on the cozy warmth, while the Down Defender resists moisture, so the down can continue to keep you heated, even if it gets wet. Marmot's soft DriClime fabric lines the collar and chin guard, so you can tuck in when the wind gets wicked. Complete with Angel-Wing Movement, you can reach and stretch without having the jacket ride up and the draw-cord hem will cinch down to block out drafts. Zippered pockets secure everything from lip balm to extra gloves and Velcro cuffs secure around your wrists. Hike to your favorite site and revel in the cold season.
