Marmot Cirque Jacket
This is a great piece and has its place in my gear closet. I've used this jacket up to 18500', and I think it's nice to have for Sierra winter climbs.

Rugged construction - I have no worries shoving it into my pack, or wearing it with a heavy pack, harness, etc...

Compressibility is pretty decent for 650 down - this parka fits into the stuff sack of a hoodless down sweater that I had.

No pit zips, although descriptions on the web, and even the tag that came on the jacket said it had pit zips. Not that I expected a down jacket to have pit zips, intriguing...

Shoulders are a little broad compared to other jackets and parkas that I own (looks like I have shoulder pads on).

No stuff sack!

A little heavy - I would prefer higher quality down to save weight, but the features of this jacket pulled me away from a few slightly lighter alternatives.
