Best For: The Marmot Quasar Jacket is best as a lightweight mid or outer layering piece for climbers, ulralight backpackers, and skiers.

For warm insulation in a lightweight package, bring along the ultra-compact Marmot Quasar Jacket. Weighing less than nine ounces, it's packed with 900-fill, certified goose down insulation to give you warmth in a small, compressible, lightweight size—no bulk.

The Quasar’s shell is made from 10-denier Pertex Quantum nylon. The lightest down-proof fabric available, it will help keep all that insulation inside where it belongs. The micro ripstop fabric is windproof, featherweight, compressible, and abrasion-resistant to help prevent tears. A DWR-treatment gives the shell added water resistance to repel light moisture.

Stretch for that next climbing hold, reach for that next pole plant, or scramble up the trail. The Quasar Jacket promises to stay in place. Marmot’s Angel-Wing Movement cut allows for a full range of arm and shoulder motions without riding up, exposing your midsection or back to the elements, or restricting your movements.

When things heat up, the lightweight (8.4 oz / 238.1 g) and warm Quasar compresses down inside its own zippered chest pocket to the size of a baseball. It also features two zippered hand pockets for access to small essentials and snacks on the go, elastic bound cuffs, and an adjustable elastic draw cord hem.
