    Versatile down with protection in mind.

    You can find Marmot's Ajax Down Jacket at many ski resorts, on multiple mountains, and in most backpacking destinations. That's because its lightweight loft includes a water-resistant Down Defender to help this jacket's down retain its loft (and warmth) in wet weather. Marmot also equipped this jacket's durable shell with a DWR coating for extra water-resistant protection. Angel-Wing Movement helps you climb, hike, and ski with a full range of motion.

    • DWR-coated mini ripstop shell
    • 600-fill down insulation
    • Down Defender treatment
    • Angel-Wing Movement

    Color of Greenland is way off!

    • Size Bought: Large

    I thought I was getting a bright green jacket but ended up with a darker muted green. Other than that it feels warm but is very form fitting in the shoulder area. Overall it's a meh...whatever

    looks nice, fits well

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Bought for my husband- he is a larger (muscular) build and so its often hard to find jackets that fit his back and arms- the XL fits great. He is also reluctant to wear a jacket, but this looks great with something casual or even to the office.

    Bought for my grandpa

      My grandpa lives in Vietnam and for whatever reason, he's been asking for a downs jacket since the start of time. I was able to get a good deal on this so I ended up buying them. I have yet to give it to him because I won't be visiting him till another 4 months. But i have tried it on and have something to share. I very much like the jacket except for the neck collar. I feel that it's a bit too high (or maybe i have a short neck >.<) I don't know...

      Love this jacket!

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large

      I purchased this item as a birthday gift for a friend in Cinder and I love the fit and color, as did he. Well made down jacket with a tailored, but not snug fit. The jacket was nice and warm, but not too bulky and had plenty of length. Sizing chart appears to be accurate as the Large fit perfectly. I did purchase the item in two colors from the start just to make sure I liked the color and both Cinder and Blue Night arrived as pictured. Only returned the blue because I did not have a need for two down jackets for one gift. Would highly recommend.

      Very warm, cut a bit funny

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      I own this jacket in steel, and I've found it terrifically warm down to 30 or 35F with just a long-sleeved shirt on underneath. If you add a mid-layer you can wear this down to 15 or 20F no problem.

      I see this jacket as more of a walking around piece than a technical piece. The main reason is that the two hand pockets are not zippered.

      The only thing I'm not thrilled about with this jacket is that the cut is a bit funny. There is some extra room in the shoulders that make it look like I am wearing shoulder pads, but the back is a bit tight below that level.

      Overall this is a very good piece from Marmot, and well worth it's price.

      Love this jacket

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large

      Had this jacket for over a year until it got stolen last night, and now I'm buying it again. Its super light and compactable for cold backpacking trips. It also looks good enough to wear to work and out around town. The price is right and a super good buy. I didn't have excessive feathers busting through, or seam issues. The one complaint I have is the waterproofing wasn't as good as I would like. Generally, it was fine in snow, but you need a shell for any real rain. I highly recommend it!

      Great at first

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      I purchased this on Black Friday, as it was just over $100. It arrived within 2 business days as promised. The 600 fill seemed more than adequate for a PNW winter. However, the down has been fleeing from day 2. I've washed it once and followed garment instructions, and anything I've worn under since has been covered in down feather. I've always had good luck with Marmot in the past, so I'm pretty disappointed. But I guess this happens with a lot of down garments. We'll see how it holds up for the rest of winter.

      Regardless, it has kept me warm and is pretty water resistant.

      It amazes me how no one is aware of pressure ratings with fabrics as evident by all the complaints regarding loose down feathers, sweat going through silnylon, UL rain jackets not being waterproof with backpack straps and so on. Quick research shows the importance/relevance of fabrics and their pressure ratings, and anyone packing UL down gear with paper thin shells--especially when stuffed--should expect, naturally, that sharp pointed feathers are going to 'Push' through.

      Great light jacket

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XL

      Although I have yet to test this jacket in the cold of a Chicago winter, it has performed well in the late fall/early winter months. I didn't find that it ran small at all. I got an XL and I still have room to wear a sweater or sweatshirt underneath. Confident that a large would of sufficed but I usually like a little more room so the XL is perfect. I am 5'11" and 210 lbs.

      Pleasantly Surprised

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large

      I received this as a gift last winter and I love it. It's very warm for its weight and looks great casually. I was a bit wary when I saw that the pockets didn't have zippers - thinking they'd be cold. But, they have a nice fleece lining on either side and are very warm. I haven't been able to test the Down Defender yet, but considering Marmot's quality, I don't doubt it will work perfectly. Considering how I normally wear hooded insulated jackets, this one's great - even without a hood.

      Do *NOT* buy a size up; true to size

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      I've seen multiple reviews saying this jacket is too small and to buy a size up. I am 5'11, 165 lbs, and the medium swallowed me, even with multiple layers on. I would highly recommend you buy the normal size you wear, and avoid having to send it back like I did. Great customer service from Backcountry, I must add.

      Great jacket

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XL

      I bought this jacket, looking for a lighter down jacket for somewhat warmer conditions. This is not down sweater light, but is perfect for late winter/early spring. Seems to be well made, with well featured for the price. This will work well under a shell, or even over a sweater, and is reportedly to be water resistant.

      Warm and light.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      I love this jacket. It is super light and compact-able, yet warm. The liner in the outside pockets are a pleasant, soft texture that keep my hands warm. There are also pockets on the breast and inside, both of which are spacious. You can tighten the waist for colder / windy days. I'm able to move around in the jacket and it is great when layered with a shell over top.

      Stitching Came Loose After 4 Days

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      Sent it to Marmot as stitching came apart after only 4 days of just using it to commute to work!!! Afraid what would happen if I really put it through some abuse. Not impressed.
      (Update:)It is a fairly warm jacket when layered correctly, but I would've been happier if I hadn't had to pay for shipping to fix a jacket only 4 days old. The Steel gets really dirty in the neck area from sweat; tried a stain repellent spray but that didn't help.

      Runs a little small...

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs small

      I own several Marmot jackets. I even tried my down jacket on before ordering to confirm...the Ajax was tight in the arm opening and around the waist. I had to return it and go else where to find a larger size.
