See the light―lightness and warmth, that is.

When you reach basecamp or when you're waiting in line to get into a concert, whip out the Marmot Men’s Ama Dablam Down Jacket. The high-lofting, 800-fill goose down will keep you warm and toasty when you throw it on. The ultra-fine down is highly compressible, too, so when you're not using it, you can pack it into its own interior pocket for easy stowing. The down-proof polyester ripstop face fabric will work for mild conditions or you can use it as a toasty layer under a shell for more extreme conditions; a DWR coating means that the Ana Dablam can handle occasional damp weather. The elastic draw cord hem will help in that serious weather for quick and easy adjustments.

At basecamp, you can flip up the attached, adjustable down-filled hood for a little warmth as you cook. Then, store a number of cooking items in the many pockets, like the vertical front chest pocket or the zippered handwarmer pockets. 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 serve up your tasty morsels, you can push down your sleeves and synch the hook and loop elastic cuffs down for added protection. When you get home from the woods, keep using the jacket in the city, because it has a fresh about-town look to it.

  • Polyester DWR Ripstop down proof face fabric
  • 800-fill power goose down

Good Midweight Down Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 4"
    Weight: 160 lbs
    Size Purchased: small and medium

This is a great midweight down jacket, more beefy and warm than your ghost whisperer/marmot quasar types, but still very light weight and packable. I had one of these for about 3-4 years in a small and it was great. I recently saw a great deal for one on STP and decided to replace my old one since i figured the down was probably pretty warn out after heavy use, it had dead spots, and was mostly duct tape. I sized up one so that it wouldnt be as tight across my chest and so i could put more layers under it. The only thing I notices about the new one I got is that it does not have the double zipper my old one did. This was a feature i really liked about the old once since i used it as a belay jacket a good bit. The new one also doesn't seem to be as jam packed with down as the old beat up one, but maybe that's just how the new ones feel, or its more spread out since I went up to a medium. Overall a great jacket, you wont be disappointed.

Great Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Height: 6'
    Weight: 165 lbs
    Size Purchased: Medium

Got this jacket on sale at Salida Mountain Sports last summer. I've had several months to give it some use, and I have to say, I love my Ama Dablam. This thing heats up quick. I've worn this down into the low teens with just a long sleeve shirt and stayed plenty warm while moving. I love the big fleece pockets, big hood, and high collar. With the exception of a breeze coming down your back (-1 star, it happens a lot), the jacket itself keeps the wind off you. Super comfy. Stylish. I haven't had any rips, even against some nasty branches, but have had a few ember holes I've taped up.

I am 6' and a lanky 165lb and I feel that a medium is just a little big on me, but that lets me layer.

Overall this is a great jacket for around camp in the shoulder months, or when you're high up in the cold. You look good, feel good, and love wearing it.

Excellent Value

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 6' 0"
    Weight: 160 lbs
    Size Purchased: Large

This item arrived promptly and is as described. The fit is true to size and the jacket is well made (as is all my Marmot clothing) . As well, it has an array of features not found on some more expensive jackets of the same type, I.E.: adjustable cuffs; hem drawstring; fully adjustable hood; Napoleon pocket; interior stuff pocket; all pockets are zippered w/ YKK zippers. I am 6' 160lbs, I bought a large to ensure room for layering, otherwise a medium would have provided a more trim fit but little room for layering. The jacket is quite warm and a good windstopper, I cannot comment on its water resistance as yet or fabric durability.

Very nice jacket.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 6' 2"
    Weight: 210 lbs
    Size Purchased: XL

Great fit, good warmth and excellent packability. I bought it for photographing Snowy Owls near Ottawa, Canada, in February 2015. I coupled it with a down vest and mid-weight capilene to get me down to -36F wind chill. I wish it had a draft collar, but it otherwise filled the bill nicely.

Super warm and packable!

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

This jacket fills the chasm between lighter down sweaters and warmer, but way more expensive baffled parkas. I got it as both an everyday, around town jacket, and to throw on during stops while ski touring. It's kept me warm in -15F temps. It is not 100% windproof, but if you throw it on over a windproof soft/hardshell it doesn't matter.

I'm 6'1" 175lbs, and got Large. It's roomy enough to be an outer warmup layer, but also fits under a shell if you really need waterproof action.

My only gripes are the lack of large interior mesh pockets, and no draft collar (the wind can blow down your back if the hood is up), but since I mainly use is as a quick over layer for staying warm, not as an all-day piece, the weight savings and packability win out.

One more plus is that the handwarmer pockets are HUGE, so you can keep your gloves on to reach into them, and still accessible with a pack on.

I found this jacket on sale for <$200, but would definitely pay full price to replace it if I ever had to. It packs down to not much bigger than a Nalgene, so there's really no excuse for not taking it on any cold weather outing.

Light and warm jacket. Good looking too.

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

I've only worn this daily for one week but I love it so far. It is light and very warm. There are so many things about this jacket that I love. The napoleon pocket, hand-warmer pockets, "angel-wing" movement.

For reference, I am a small guy. 5' 5" and 140 lbs. Size small fits me perfectly I think.

Great jacket

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

I'm 5'10" 190lbs and a medium fit snug, that's personally how I like things to fit I have a bit of a gut though so we'll just say that it's true to its size in my opinion. Great jacket, fits nicely under the Marmot Spire Gore-Tex jacket as well if you're looking for a water-proof shell. Sorry for the people who have had bad experiences with it but if you're buying a down jacket expecting it to be wind and waterproof you should do a little more asking around.

It was a toss up between this and the heavier down marmot jacket and I'm happy with my decision. This is as much down as you need unless you plan on climbing the North Face. I only gave it 4/5 stars because I have not owned this jacket for very long.

Way too much hype!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

I had the guide down jacket last year, I had to take it back because the zipper broke. I decided to try the Ama Dablam jack because of 800 fill and the lower weight. What a mistake...
-it is light weight because there is hardly any fill.
-This is a glorified DOWN SWEATER NOT A JACKET.
-not as warm as other reviews would have you believe.
-wind cuts right through the jacket
- large to the fit
Buy the guide down jacket over this, more durable and much warmer. If I could return this jacket I would in a heart beat.
I'm an avid skier and mountaineer and I would never take this with me on a trip, can't even use it as a city jacket on a cold day.

Why the size chart here is one size smaller than the one on Marmot official site? I am confused.

What is the center back length of a medium?

this one gets DOWN

this one gets DOWN

This sweet baby is top notch! I have 4000+ miles and counting on mine, and it is sill my go to heavy layer for cold weather camping/backpacking or just sitting around the campfire. It's very soft and lofty and the stitching is solid. I highly recommend this baby, it gets down!

Hey Andrey,
I don't have enough info to make a recommendation for you. Both are awesome, we would love to help you our if you call or chat in with our gearheads.

Overall I would say that Marmot Mountain Down is going to be the warmer between these two jackets, but it isn't really fair to judge either by a simple warmth comparison.

The Marmot Ama Dablam is a light constructed down jacket that packs in quality 800 fill down, and more of it than many other lightweight down jackets. It really fills that zone for Marmot between the super light Zeus and the heavier bulkier Mountain Down. The fabric is thin (approx 40 D) and this makes it an excellent layering piece for hardcore warmth on the go.

The Marmot Mountain Down in contrast is a longer body length and heavier denier fabric best suited as an outerlayer down parka. It employs 650 down fill, but at a higher fill weight than the Ama Dablam so this slightly lower grade down really goes the distance. The Mountain Down also employs Marmot's proprietary MemBrain 2-layer face fabric to make this parka highly resistant to the elements, as well as breathable to avoid a tempest of sweat in your baselayers (*gross image*).

The weight of the down in the Marmot Mountain Down, combined with its beefier face fabric, make it a slightly warmer jacket than the Ama Dablam, but I would be much more prone to wear the AD on a alpine climb than the MD, and more likely to wear the MD in the city or around camp. Two excellent jackets suited for slightly different purposes.

Best Jacket Ever

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

The jacket is warm, as warm as it gets. It keeps me toasty during cold nights in Yosemite. It is water resistant; I wore it in the rain and stayed warm.

Best of all, most of all. The coolest thing in the world is how it compresses into its own pocket and becomes a tiny little pouch that serves as a perfect pillow, cushion, or anything else you can think of. Impress all your friends when you show up with a sleevless shirt, then pull a tiny little ball out of your bag and outcomes the warmest, most comfortable jacket in the world. My girlfriend and I both have one

What size of this jacket would You recommend to me?

Responded on

You should definitely be good with a Small. I am almost the exact same size at 5'10" and 148lbs with a 38 inch chest and the Small is great on me. It's a little roomy with just a t-shirt but has plenty of space to accommodate a thick fleece underneath. I would be swimming in a Medium.

Responded on

Hey, Today I went to a shop and tried medium because they had only medium and large. And Medium has good length, didn't restricted arm movement and was great to put on everything as a belay jacket. I think small would be too tight and too short. It's strange that small fits You perfectly. When did You bought this jacket? Maybe You have some older model with a different sizing?

Not sure

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

800 fill or 1000 ,I dont know if it makes a difference ,,,,I got this jacket today , looks very light and seems like has some spots around the waist where is nothing than the cover and lining not down at all ,,, anyway i refuse to believe this jacket with ...800 fill will be good enough to keep me warm in Chicago winter with negative temperatures , it seems very , very light ,,,i am not sure ....I got it in sale with $200 only ..still seems to much for it . I will see how it works soon out there in cold and windy winter . It appears to be kinda barrel style cut ...i am not a fun of it at all . I will keep it cause i have a down vest and wearing together i will be ready for negative 10 for sure but with this jacket only ,,,???? Good luck to every one

Responded on

In MI it is plenty warm. If concerned about the negative temps, add a layer. I've used mine for skiing, shoveling, walking the dogs in the negative temps, football games, etc. Love this jacket. Thin enough that you don't instantly start sweating when you get indoors. If I had to have only one of my jackets, it might be this-- or my Zion.

No nonsense puffy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

Not exorbitantly expensive, with few features (in my case, a good thing), and above average durability makes this puffy a really excellent go to for chilly trail maintenance in Vermont winters, backpacking in Alaskan's midnight sun, or time around the campfire at 11,000 feet on the Colorado Trail. It stuffs down nicely. Only major complaint is the bulky fit. Despite synching in all applicable places, it still feels bulky and, if you don't synch all the way, you'll get some drafts coming up the waist.

All in all, I'd buy it again. Had it for 2 years now; shows no signs of relenting.
