Description

Puffy warmth without the puffy.

The Marmot Women’s Ama Dablam Down Jacket delivers the toasty-warm goodness of 800-fill power goose down without all the puffed-up volume. Its hexagonal quilting evenly distributes the down and keeps your figure streamlined for easier mobility. Speaking of mobility, this non-puffy has Marmot's Angel Wing Movement for unhindered arm motion, imperative when reaching that crux move or taking in slack ASAP. The hood is down-filled, too, so your head stays nice and warm. Elastic at cuffs and hem further seal out the cold, and a wind flap in front add a nice barrier. Stuff this versatile jacket in its own stuff sack to make anytime, anywhere warmth a (literal) cinch.

  • Ultra Down-proof polyester mini-ripstop with DWR
  • 800-fill goose down insulation
  • Regular fit with Angel Wing Movement
  • Wind flap behind front zip
  • Shaped hem and dropped tail
  • Adjustable insulated hood
  • Elastic drawcord hem and adjustable cuff closure
  • Zippered sleeve, inside stuff-sack, and two zippered hand pockets

I Love It!

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

I was skeptical to buy this jacket after some of the other reviews I read, but I'm glad I took the plunge. It's an awesome jacket. The hood fits with a ponytail, the sleeves are long enough for my gangly arms, and the specs didn't say this, but there is a stuff pocket inside the zipper! It is so warm too, lately in Idaho it's been below freezing temperatures and I've worn it in the mornings when it's only 7 degrees out, and I've stayed perfectly toasty. Sometimes I wish there were pit zips, but I know that would defeat the purpose. Its a good jacket, and the honeycomb pattern is so cute and original, I get lots of compliments on the color. I got the gator green one in medium. I'm 5'9" and 140-ish lbs. Lovely lovely lovely.

Pretty good

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

I wanted a warm hooded down jacket for three weeks of trekking the high passes of Everest. First I ordered the hooded version of my favorite Montbell jacket but that jacket was too short in the torso for me and the hood fit funny. After trying on everything I could get my hands on, I decided on this jacket though I was leery because it doesn't seem to have much loft. I liked the fit and the extra torso length a lot and I appreciated that on the windy and snowy passes and in cold tea houses. Ultimately, I have to agree with the reviewer who felt this jacket is more for "city." It just didn't seem to have the warmth or the ruggedness of my beloved Montbell and if I were to do the trip over again, I think I'd sacrifice the need to for a hood and take my old jacket. But, I certainly looked better than I do in my puffy Montbell! I took this coat to Ama Dablam herself. I wonder how many people do?!

a little on the heavy side

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

I was looking for a warm but still light weight down jacket. This jacket fit well and looks good but it is relatively heavy for it's warmth. I'm 5'2", 115lbs (broad shoulders/chest) and the S fit pretty well but the shoulders were a little small. I ordered several down jackets and I decided to return this jacket and go with the Norr�na Lyngen Lightweight Down 750 Jacket, the Montbell Alpine Light Down Parka was the runner up. Both of those were lighter and seemed just as warm.

Fabulous jacket...I love it!

  • Fit: True to size

There is seldom a day that goes by that I don't wear my new jackets. It's comfortable, appropriately warm and very fashionable. I like the cut, the adjustable wrists (which work well for my thin wrists), the hood and everything else!

Great Jacket & Fun Color

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

I got this jacket in Bright Berry at the beginning of the month and so far I really like it. I'm 5'11" and I was impressed by the length because usually I have problems with jackets being too short. I got it in medium and it fits perfect. I like that it is just roomy enough that I can wear a sweater under it when I'm extra chilled. The jacket is super light weight and extremely soft. I don't feel HUGE in it. The pockets have a nice fleece lining. It does occasionally lose feathers here and there. I've only worn it around town so far, but I'm looking forward to doing some snowshoeing in it. Thanks to Paul at Back Country for suggesting it!

New design, Cheaper quality

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

I have an older version of the Ama Dablam, and it is undoubtedly better built. Several points that buyers ought to be aware of:

- price is way high for a jacket of such quality

- old version had double zipper (for harness use, comfort, etc.)

- HUGE difference in loft, in comparison to the old version. Even after several weeks of use, the insulation was subpar, much thinner, and more like 600 fill, rather than the advertised 800 fill power. Noticeably warmer. Non-mistakable. Without a doubt.

- Quality of the fabric seems cheaper :( Feathers fly out all the time! Whereas the older version's leaked a feather here and there, rarely.

Although my old Ama Dablam is a bit fluffier and more Michellin-man-like, it keeps me much warmer, and does the job better. I am comfortable outside in 20-30 degree weather in just a shirt and this jacket, given that pants, a scarf, and gloves are on too. This new version is more suited towards the 50s and 60s. But you could easily find a jacket of this warmth and insulation caliber at half, if not a quarter of the cost elsewhere.

In conclusion, this "new" Ama Dablam jacket is more suited towards a city jacket, and definitely not more adventurous outings, as I'm genuinely afraid that the thing may fall apart if snagged. It sucks! But it'll hold up for any city girl's use.

I'll be returning this one and opting for my old jacket. Bummer :(

How long is the torso of the jacket in a large? I am 6ft tall and have had issues with down jackets being too short

Best Answer Responded on

I'm 5'2" and wear a size Small. It covers maybe 1/3 of my butt, if not less. I have an average torso. When I cinch the waist, it rides up to my waist/bellybutton.

I have the same problem with jackets being too short because I'm 5'11". This jacket wasn't too short on me. It hits me just below my belt line.

Venga!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift
  • Fit: True to size

This is an excellent down jacket for those interested in something more substantial than those ultralight down jackets, but not interested in looking like the Michelin Man.
800 fill down keeps the weight low, and the warmth high, and it even stuffs into its own pocket.
It will keep you warm and comfortable while climbing too, whether it be reaching for the crux hold, or feeding out rope along with encouraging words to your partner while you belay

Purchased for my girlfriend-5'11 and built like a climber(muscular upper body) and the medium fits like a dream.

Venga!

Is the Ama Dablam waterproof? I live in Seattle and would like to know if this can put up with the constant waterfall from the sky. Thanks!

Hey there, thanks for your question. This jacket has a DWR coating on the jacket. The DWR helps repelled water from the jacket, if you wear the jacket often then you would want to wash your jacket in a Nikwax DWR wash after every season. Although, I don't think this would be the best option for constant rain, once down gets wet the jacket will get cold. Hope this helps.

I am 5feet 2", 34 bust- should I be looking at a small, or a medium? I do tend to layer underneath, want a little room.
any suggestions would be great! Sue

i'm 5'3, 34D bust, and i thought the medium was way too large and boxy. i'd opt for the small.

I'm shopping for my niece who is a 65", 105#, 5th grader with a long wing span. Her mother says she is a women's x-small. What do others think? xs or small?
