When warmth is a matter of survival, stick with Marmot's Greenland Down Jacket.

Warm enough for Denali
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I'm a pretty big fan of this jacket. The warmth to weight ratio is great, and as long as you're not standing still for hours it's warm enough for some of the coldest places on earth - I wore it to the summit of Denali this summer (pictured). Fitting a full nalgene in the inside pocket was rather hard to accomplish with heavy gloves on but I have no complaints besides that.
This jacket is larger than most jackets for a given size to allow for layering underneath. I was able to wear a base layer, fleece, and lightweight down jacket all underneath this jacket which really helps with layering in the mountains (6 feet tall, 155 lbs, size medium).
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Nice jacket but I was looking for the warmest down jacket and bought Mountain Hardware's Absolue Down Parka which is the best parka on the market.
Nice and Warm
Did not care for the orange tho
Summit Spantik 7,027 m
Such a great jacket. Light, very warm and extremely packable. Very impressed.
I have used this jacket for two winters so far. It is very warm and I barely use it when it is above -20C. No doubt it is very delicate but it is down after all.
Pros: fits perfect
never cold with it
excellent warmth/weight ratio
Cons: hood design
Hello I'm planning to buy the Marmot...
Hello I'm planning to buy the Marmot Greenland Baffled Down Jacket but I'm still hesitating regarding the size.
I'm 5'9" (175cm) and weight 160 lbs (73 kg).
The Mountain Hardwear Sub Zero SL Hooded Down size M fits me perfectly.
Should I go with M or S ?
Thank you for your help
I would definitely go with the size medium Greenland Down Jacket. For this type of jacket, you want to have the ability to pull it on over everything, and accommodate all your layers! My down jacket (Sub Zero SL hooded down) fits a little large with no layers underneath, but I'm really glad I have the extra room when it comes time to stop, and pull it on over everything.
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO WASH DOWN JACKETS...
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO WASH DOWN JACKETS OR SHOULD ONE JUST DRY CLEAN THEM?
I TRIED TO WASH A DOWN JACKET ONCE AND THE JACKET WAS NEVER THE SAME. THE DOWN NEVER FLUFFED UP AGAIN, CAUSING COLD SPOTS
http://www.backcountry.com/nikwax-down-wash - AND follow the tag on the specific garment for instructions on how the manufacturer recommends it be laundered. Lay flat to dry - don't wring it or place in dryer, or hang.
I JUST BOUGHT THE MARMOT GREENLAND DOWN...
I JUST BOUGHT THE MARMOT GREENLAND DOWN JACKET. DOES THE HOOD FOLD DOWN AND AWAY WHEN NOT IN USE?
Not in a traditional pocket - but it does stay pretty much stay out of the way when flipped back. Its a full hooded jacket - so the hood is not really meant to stow too far away - if your doing something active with it VS using as a belay jacket, it may be annoying to you at times.

What is the weight/amount of the 800 fill in this jacket? Thanks!
The Greenland Baffled Down Jacket has 300 grams of 800 fill goose down.
Used on Ama Dablam - November
Very impressed with this jacket. Excellent warmth to weight ratio. I was concerned that the material might rip while climbing the grey tower at night but stood up to rock climbing very well. The internal packable pocket is very handy as well. Great hood as well.
marmot greenland baffled down jacket
Super warm, but not durable
Had this jacket for 3 weeks until a baffle ripped while putting it on before going out in a storm.
The jacket is incredible warm, easily good down to sub zero temperatures. Very loft, like being in a cloud. Great cut, long and covers your ass. Hood is HUGE and can impede your peripheral vision if cinched up.
I have last year's model, and truthfully, the zippers are whack. Marmot kindly installed a zipper stiffener and it works beautifully.
Cuffs are great, pockets are damn brilliant (really, props to the designer). I imagine this is a perfect static activity jacket in cold climates.
As a belay jacket, it is very packable however it is very delicate. As a casual jacket, it is absurdly warm yet not waterproof. Perfect for SUPER cold and dry environments.
It will be warmer than a MHW Sub Zero SL, TNF Nuptse, Patagonia Fitz Roy and other jackets in the similar price range. (Check out the Mammut Ambler Hoody)
- SUPER warm, really. This thing is a furnace.
- Very lofty and packable.
- Hood goes over most helmets
- Great pockets
- Very delicate material. Don't get near sharp objects or fire with this thing.

just wondering over in time as u keep wearing this product will the filing ever start comming out of the coat like most down coatsand does the shell tear easy over time??
Hello! I'm almost sold on this - the only...
Hello! I'm almost sold on this - the only thing that I'm worried about is the down in the arms- my arms always get cold in jackets that have less down there, and then I get cold all over. Can anyone with this jacket tell me if there really is a lot less down in the arms?
I am a slightly small guy - 5'8, 150,...
I am a slightly small guy - 5'8, 150, medium to slight build and am not sure whether a small or medium would be more appropriate. A big concern for me is how the neck will fit - I am at the 14 1/2 inch range putting me at the cusp of small and medium and I know virtually no shirt or jacket I buy fits my neck, ever. If I'm thinking of spending over $300 I'd rather not need a scarf to prevent draft. any hints on the fit?
Cad3040163.. yes good news I am 5'8 155 also with a 14 & 1/2 inch neck. Medium is your best bet. I own a medium in most of my winter jackets and my TNF down jacket is a medium and the neck is great. My buddy has a Marmot down jacket and I tried it on they fit very similar, but Marmot is nicer in my opinion. Go medium and enjoy, sick jacket!
I'm a 5' 5" woman and I usually wear W's...
I'm a 5' 5" woman and I usually wear W's medium for jackets. Would the small fit for me? Unfortunatly there seems to be no 800+ down jacket for women that are designed to wear above the hardshell. Thanks!
Yeah, a small should fit you quite nicely.
I have this jacket and love it! I use it as a belay jacket or when just hanging around camp while winter skiing in the backcountry of Colorado. I can wear a t shirt underneath in windy near zero degree conditions and still be warm.
My only complaint is that occasionally the down pokes thru.
How exactly do you stuff the coat into the...
How exactly do you stuff the coat into the zippered pocket? (I'm assuming we're talking about the pocket on the right, as you wear it.)
everything i needed
i bought this jacket for high alpine climbing and mountaineering, its super warm. i have only had it at around ten below but was still ready to go. its all fluff and little fabric so every ounce is to serve your warmth. if you want to a jacket for climbing NEVER skip on the hood. fits easily over any helmet and makes on the difference in warmth when its dark or the wind is whippin at the back of your neck. this is perfect for long winter belays when you have to just stop and sit on your but for an hour or more. i have also slept in this jacket in emergency bivy and was still warm in my cave. the angle wing technology means that you wont suck a bunch of cold air in everytime you take in slack. i love this jacket and its priced to sell
Adjusted review Great Coat
Need to update my review my real weight is 260 and the xl is a nice fit and returned the xxl for it...the xxl is too big and drafty I am 6 foot and well built...xxl is too big.
