The Menís Marmot Ares Vest is a retro styled ultralight and packable insulated jacket that uses 600 fill goose down to battle winter chills. For fast-and-light climbing missions, extended backpacking trips, or backcountry ski tours, the Marmot Ares Down Vest delivers the warmth of a down jacket with less weight than a traditional fleece. This means you can tuck the Ares Vest inside almost any daypack, or backpack. The design of this Marmot Vest delivers a very low profile that makes the Ares Vest perfect outer-layer during cold conditions. The Marmot Ares Vest also works flawlessly under a hard shell jacket for use in cold and wet conditions. Marmot furthermore equipped the Ares Vest with ultra light down proof fabric to keep the goose down from poking through; added zip handwarmer pockets for cold hands and goodies, and gave the Ares Vest a elastic hem to keep the chill from creeping in from the outside. The Ares moves as you do with its amazing Angel-Wing Movement allowing use for a wide variety of activities. Get the all mighty Marmot Ares Vest and win the war against winter chills.
