The puffy-style jacket occasionally receives a bad wrap for being bulky and cumbersome, but thanks to Marmot this no longer has to be the case. The Avant Featherless Jacket features a lightweight Thinsulate technology that retains maximum warmth while maintaining an impressively lightweight feel. The packable nylon materials layup stows away into its own integrated pocket, making the Avant perfect for traveling and hiking. Avant’s regular fit is sleek enough to wear out on the town, and fits seamlessly under additional layers when hitting the slopes. Baffle construction supplies a timeless style and keeps warmth in as temperatures drop throughout the afternoon and evening.
