Description

Leave your fleece at home, and experience the amazing warmth of the Marmot Ama Dablam Down Jacket.

Marmot designed the Ama Dablam Men's Down Jacket to be used as an ultralight, ultra-compact mid layer for frigid January ski days and winter mountaineering. Ultralight Gridlock down-proof fabric keeps the 650+fill down insulation from sneaking out the seams, and cuts this jacket's weight to just over a pound. When the day warms up, or you just need a pillow for the evening, stuff the Ama Dablam Jacket into its own inner zip pocket—this also cuts down on bulk inside your pack. The Ama Dablam's athletic fit and Angel Wing Movement design gives you more freedom for big reaches while climbing or skiing, and the insulated hood adds warmth when the mercury really plummets.

Posted on

So I'm looking for a layering system to help me survive at 22,841 ft (Aconcagua). My thought is to layer this jacket over my TNF Thunder 800-fill down jacket. Has anyone ever tried layering down jackets? Seems like a good idea so that you get two different warm levels for less than 2.5 lbs.

Responded on

Totally works. I layered with a North Face Prism Jacket (hooded down expedition jacket) and the thunder jacket on my last trip to AK, and the combo worked great. I was really happy to have 2 pieces to use instead of one monster down piece. It will be even better down there where you will have ever bigger swings in temps- Have fun.

Great Jacket for the Pacific North West

Climbed Rainier in this jacket and it was perfect. Had it stashed in my pack for most of the way up at around 13,000 feet the wind started kicking up and it got really cold, even while walking. Threw this jacket on and was as cosy as a quala bear.
Love the fact that it is super light and for the price its a great warm jacket.

Never used it in really cold weather so don`t know how well it handles. Hopefully doing some ice climbing this year.. so will have a better idea.

One weird thing about it is it seemed to shed a little down the first time I put it on.

Nice warm light quality jacket

I have owned this jacket for only about a month so far and love it. Its super light, warm, fits well, and is worth the price. I looked at a few other jackets similar to this one but chose this over the other them. I am a size medium and went with the red color. I am 5'10 160pds and this jacket...once you give it a slight pull at the bottom to trap the warm air and throw that hoodie over your head and use the 3 adjustments to make it not only cozy as all...but feel very techy and also holds up with wind. This jacket has done well in windy conditions ranging from 5-15 mph and have worn it in temps as low as 25-35 degrees and was comfortable with only a tee underneath. Seems block enough wind so you stay warm. I would recommend this jacket.

Does anybody know how Marmot's mens sizes compare to womens sizes? Would the men's small be absolutely huge on a 5'4", 120 lb person?

Responded on

Yeah, it would be huge on you. Men's small is about a women's m/l, and the arms will be a lot longer.

LOVE this jacket!

I bought this jacket for my husband (L) 6'1" and 195 lbs (size recommendation) - and he loves it completely! It is a mid layer and so light that you don't even know you have it on. It is very stylish and slimming - and so comfy looking on him too. He is very happy as it was his birthday gift and he wears it all the time. So warm!

I'm 5'10 and 165 lbs. I plan on wearing this jacket over a t shirt or a light fleece. Should I get a medium or large?

Responded on

Hey Kevin,I'd go with the Large. You should be just right in that size. You'll love this jacket! They're really warm, compact super well and move with you even better! Have fun with it!!!

Responded on

I would go for the medium, as the Dablam is roomy enough. This is probably my favorite jacket for our Texas deep winter months, and I tend to throw mine over my tees in the evenings -- I'm 6'1 and 170 -- and I wear a medium. I would get a large if you were planning to layer it over some heavier wool sweaters or big, chunky fleeces, otherwise, for t-shirts and skinny fleeces, you are going to have room to spare.

Good mid layer

This jacket is very light,comfortable and has a good fit. It is not a cold weather jacket. By itself maybe good for temps down to -6c as a mid layer with hard shell over top -15c. so for warmer weather it works well. I think Marmot is a little shy on the Down on this jacket. This is not designed as an outer layer and will not stand up to the abuse. over all I am happy with the jacket as a mid layer. BUY ON SALE

The Travel Jacket

This Jacket is defenatly on the cuting edge of down jackets. Warm, Light,durable,and convient. Im a city slicker that ocasionaly goes out to his bolder to climb.In both areas this jacket excells.
Its small enough to fit in to my backpack while running around but still packs a punch when its cold and its not a HUGE jacket.What I like is that you can wear it inside a room and not die of a heat stroke like most down jackets ive owned. When Im outside and its 32 out Im still warm! How sweet! The hood feels Great! The draw cord that goes around your head really helps. Climbing this thing rocks!! The way that they made the cut is awsome. You can really retch with out showing off your back skinzz off.
Over all if your looking for one of the sickest down jackets out there, this is it.

keeper!

I bought this jacket for a warm layer during breaks in ski touring. It's got a generous cut and long in the back, so definitely did the trick and kept me warm! Not too bulky so I could wear it under a hard shell with wet weather, as the jacket isn't meant to be weatherproof.

Only reason for 4/5 stars is that there's room for improvement in the baffling in the back - the channels are so long that it's easy for the down to migrate to one end or the other. The front has shorter channels, so they were always really puffy.

Great colour (I got the green), good fitting hood (lots of adjustments), packs small (inside pocket is a stuff sack), light, warm, nice style, and great price!

Fits the Bill for Intended Use

The jacket was designed as a lightweight packable midlayer, and in those areas it is perfect. It is not meant to be a outerlayer. It is extremely light, retains its loft very well, and packs down nice and small. I have been very happy with my coat. Another great product from Marmot. Another great price from Backcountry.

not good.

This jacket was very thin, not for cold NYC weather. I was very unsatisfied with it and returned it the same day. 650 Fill Haha. My kids Marmot 650 fills seems puffier than this jacket. This jacket seem to be something for a day in September, March or April NYC weather. Not November to February. NO GOOD. Very Disapointed!!

under a gtx shell would this be a better choice than the sub zero by mountain hardware?

Responded on

The Ama Dablam and the Mountain Hardwear Sub-Zero Jacket are both great 650 fill down jackets. The Sub Zero is a bit puffier and doesn't have a hood like the Ama Dablam does. You'd have to get the Sub Zero SL Hooded Down Jacket (MHW0016) to get the hood. So if you'll be wearing a Gore Tex shell over it, you should decide on the puffier Sub Zero w/o a hood, or the less puffy Ama Dablam WITH a hood.

not quite perfect

I've had the Ama Dablm now for a couple of years and I definately like it. The problem I have is that the hood is too big. To me this is a after ski or sitting around the campfire jacket and there really is no need to have a helmet compatible hood. Other than that, it works really well. The fleece lined pockets are a definate bonus. Like all down jackets, some of the feathers poke through the outer shell, but this is normal. Overall, it is definately worth having....especially at 20% off like it is now.

Careful with color selection...

The bonfire is much more bright/orange than shown in the picture.
Otherwise, this thing packs well, is ultra light and ultra warm. Anything above 0-10 degrees and you're fine wearing a tshirt under this. Also should fit under most shells (my Medium fits under a Medium sized Marmot Exum, which runs somewhat narrow as is) Blocks wind pretty well but can soak up water pretty quickly so not the best idea for heavy snow wear. The good news is, it dries out pretty quickly if you do get caught in a storm.
Haven't had it too long so I can't comment on wear. Construction seems pretty solid, same as most other Marmot gear, but the material itself looks like it's not too rugged.

Great Jacket

Love my jacket. Bright colors I want them all. Light weight, warm and compact.

what's the temperature rating for this coat given moderate activity (such as walking)? Also, what base and midlayers are you supposed to be wearing in the rating?

This will keep you VERY warm with anything underneath.

I'm guessing this is a no, but can I fit a bike helmet under it?

Responded on

agreed, not going to happen...I do own the Marmot Mountain Down Jacket, still available on some sites. It has some serious warm, as well as a massive hood, you could probably fit a helmet underneath. Also it has the added feature of the reinforced shoulders and elbows via canvas type material. Hope that helps.
