User Review: Marmot Men's Helium
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $389
Nice materials, very light, looks well made. VERY slim fitting. I am 5'9" weigh 200 lbs, and it's not snug but it definitely is NOT relaxed. The zipper was difficult in the "wee" hours and tended to snag. I like the bag, but IMHO it's not in the same league as a Western Mountaineering bag. Sorry.
- Nice fabric
- Good quality down
- Marmot name is great, they stand behind all their gear.
- Didn't like the zipper.
Warmth, yeah maybe 15. I got a little cold on the bottom, but that happens.
Fit was too snug for my liking, no wiggle room. I know that adds to the warmth. Less air to warm. Exit was difficult. Like I said above, I don't like the zipper.
Moisture, didn't have that as an issue. Packs small. Looks like it's well made. I looked over seams and they all look quality. Had it about 2 months used it twice. Honestly, I felt kinda let down.
