    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Marmot Quasar Down Jacket - Men's is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best micro down out there So I took the time to look at the competition (North Face Thunder micro, Mountain Hardware Ghost Whisperer, and Patagonia Ultralight) before I bought this jacket. If you want to know the differences read on below. To put it in a quick sentence why to get the quasar. If you live in a drier cold climate and want the best fitting, best looking jacket, with the highest quality and amount of down fill....this is your jacket. Fit: It is just a tad longer than the others which prevents any unwanted drafts. For those with tall torsos like me, this was a deal clincher. Loft: This is the only jacket with 900 fill. The others are 800 to 850 and usually have less down in weight. So in essence your getting more and higher quality insulation, at a similar cost in a microdown jacket. Quality: The stitching is top quality. The thickness of the ripstop nylon is just right. The 7d nylon on the Mountain Hardware feels so paper thin and fragile. I'll take the extra 1-2 ounces in weight and have less fear that I'm going to destroy my jacket on some inadvertent object. Others have said it. I don't care for the MH zippers either. Function: I tried them all and I can't tell a difference in weight. They are all light and feel like you are wearing a warm layer of air. On a single digit windy ski day, I just wear a base layer, fleece vest, my quasar, and a gore tech shell and I'm comfortable. Looks/ergonomics: It's all personal but I think this looks the best. The North Face is to box shaped and puffy in the arms, the Patagonia looks like you're wearing a bunch of pleats, and the mountain hardware is the best of the three but the shoulder baffles are less appealing than those of the Marmot. I also like having the chest pocket. Mountain hardware doesn't have it. Consider the MH if every ounce matters to you. Be wary of the quality of their lighter material though. MH and North Face tout their DWR treated down. If I lived in a wet climate, I would think twice about buying down in the first place. We also don't know how the DWR is going to affect the long term performance of the loft of the down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket I have used the Quasar as a winter jacket when it was really cold (well below zero and windy) and the jacket keeps me toasty! The jacket is thin and fitted enough to wear a shell over it for added warmth, but I have not needed to do this. I am almost 6'5" and about 210 pounds and a size large fits nicely. The sleeves could be an inch longer, but they work fine the way they are. It is roomy enough to easily wear a sweater underneath, but trim enough to wear a shell over it. I could not be more pleased with my purchase. Well, maybe if there was a winning lottery ticket in the pocket...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit This review is only with relation to the fit of the jacket. I have looked for a long time for a down jacket that fit well. I am 6'0 185 lbs and the medium fits perfectly for me. Shoulders fit nicely and length is perfect also. I would consider this jacket fitted. If you are worried about it being baggy around the waist don't be. After trying many other brands and never being satisfied with the baggy fit I have finally found "the one."

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slim fit but super light and warm Love this jacket. Super light while still warm. Is a fitted/slim fit though. I am 5'3" 160lb and the small fits well except the chest is kind of snug and if I try to pull the jacket below my waist it's also snug there too. I like the fit of the marmot zeus more but I trade off between the two. It's whichever one I grab that day. They are comparable in warmth but this one is slightly lighter in weight. Haven't really tried other brands' down jackets though.
