Super warm and comfortable.

Fit: It is just a tad longer than the others which prevents any unwanted drafts.

This is a great jacket overall. Superlight, warm, and the black color was not as shiny as the others in this category (patagonia ultralight, Mountain hardware ghost whisperer). It's still shiny but duller than the blacks in the other two brands stated, depends if the trash bag look is your thing it wasn't mine so this was the jacket I went with. The fit was not perfect but doable. I'm 6' 155 and went with the medium. My concerns were the arms were a little on the long side and the overall length of the jacket was a little long for me. Both of these issues were minor in my opinion as the overall cut was form fitting and very stylish. I love that the jacket can be stored in the front pocket. The overall feel of the fabric is soft and smooth. I have the patagonia ultralight hoody and a mountain hardware nitrous. This is the jacket I'll grab for extreme outdoor activities. Overall it feels a bit better in overall quality then the others. It is a more substantial jacket and appears to have more fill and it's a bit more puffy than the others especially in the arms. Overall, great jacket and I expect years of use from it.

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. Other have mentioned how they think the MH zippers are too small. I concur. 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. 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.

it's really lightweight and overall warm enough (or probably also because i have some good body fat..)

the only thing i feel not perfect is the touch of the fabrics, it is sort of too soft and not very smooth, which makes me feel it is too vulnerable and could be easily scratched.

Looked at nearly every jacket available in this pricerange and style. This one fit the best and had the highest quality materials. A very sharp looking cut.
