whatta good deal!
This is the jacket to take out into the storm. It is a bomber style (kinda short) and it is too bulky for layering either under or over (but it doesn't need it). Mine is size L and measures 29" long in the back, weighs 1284g. It is wp, windproof and breathable (I can vouch for its wp: you can drench it and stay dry) and it is really warm. It has a load of 650 down in it so it is bulky. It compares to a well known very expensive bomber that shows up in the movies, and the biggest difference I can see is that it runs large. I usually wear an xl in this type of jacket and the L is slightly large on me. There's nothing missing: it has, zipoff down adjustable hood, zippered inside pocket and knit cuffs and hem. Only weakness is that the handwarmer pockets have no insulation on the weather side. BUT it's a bargain and it will keep you warm and dry in the worst weather!!

This jacket fit great with enough room to layer. It's totally warm with the 650 proof down. The jacket at first sight looks heavy and uncomfortable but the jacket is very light weight, comfortable and I love that the jacket never rides up no matter what direction I swing my arms.

I love my Marmot Aviate down jacket! It's very warm and comfortable. Very lightweight and not bulky like some down jackets. The handwarmer pockets have a nice lining making it feel warm to the touch unlike some jackets on the market. The quality seems quite good. I like that you can detach the hood. I'm 6 ft tall and 190 lbs. The large I bought is a little oversize for me; but I believe the medium might be a little too snug. I would highly recommend this jacket.

Great jacket for the price
The Aviate is exactly what I expected it to be. A light, warm, down-filled jacket for the extreme temperatures of winter. It's the perfect jacket for trekking through the city in those below-freezing temps. Definitely recommend!

Aviate Jacket is great product
Bought jacket at end of season(March). Was looking for something stylish,yet casual and this is it all the way. Fit and finish,to use an auto analogy,are excellent.I'm tall(6'4" and lanky(200#) and it fits great (size:large).There is a bit of extra room which is fine by me. Lowest temperature i've worn it in is 35 degrees in 30 knot winds.I work on a ship and i was very warm wearing just a cotton t-shirt and regular shirt.Driving rain doesn't penetrate jacket. First Marmot product,but it won't be the last.
