Light is right.
When you've spent too-many-miles-to-count spent on the trail and are just shy of feeling frozen, whip out the Marmot Men’s Ama Dablam Down Jacket upon reaching camp for serious, furnace-like warmth. The high-loft, 800-fill goose down not only keeps you toasty, but it's also highly compressible, so when you're not using it, you can pack it down into its own interior pocket for easy storage. And while it's best worn layered underneath a hardshell, the Ama Dablam features down-proof, polyester ripstop fabric that withstands mild conditions, and the DWR treatment will resist lightly damp weather.
Now, when you've finally defrosted and settled in for an evening at camp, flip up the attached and adjustable down-filled hood for a extra dose of coziness as you cook up your choice in dehydrated meal. The multiple pockets make storing necessities, like extra salt or pepper, easy and readily accessible. And, if you are getting serious in the camp kitchen, Marmot's Angel-Wing Movement allows for a full range of motion—so the jacket doesn't ride up when you're really getting into the groove of cooking. Not to mention, a fully adjustable hem makes it easy to not only secure warmth, but enables you to keep a hot water bottle by your side for extra warmth as the temperatures outside your vestibule door dip below comfortably, err, painfully cool.

- Q & A
Claimed weight of 1lb 3oz with 800-fill down would suggest that this jacket is *crazy* warm. Is it? Like spectating-a-ski-race-in-Montana-in-January warm? How warm is it, for example, in comparison to the Marmot Guides Down? Or, though I know this is probably asking too much, how about a comparison to other common down jackets, like the Patagonia Down Sweater?
