Got one of these in black before they sold out. Keeps me warm and protected from the wind. I'm 6'0", 190lbs and I got a large. Fits just right! Torso and sleeves are not too long and not too short. I like my Marmot Guides Down!!!
- Gender: Female
i bought it for my husband. it fits well.
and keep warm
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought this as a backup to my Marmot Zeus jacket. I was looking for something that had a "stiffer" fill that would stay lofted inside a outer layer. This definitely fits the bill. The coat is well made, filled to the brim, stays lofted up under my shell and is still reasonably compressible. The lower fill power is sometimes a good thing!
I will say it has a different fit than the Zeus. The sleeves are slighly shorter and there is less room across the back, which causes the sleeves to ride up when reaching out in front of myself. I am 6'1", 160lbs and got a MED. I would probably order a large in this (if I bought another) even though I fit perfect in a MED Zeus. The fit is slightly less athletic and maybe a bit shorter than it could be, and some of the extra belly/chest room would be better placed across the shoulder blades. Overall however it's a great coat.
I am 5' 11" and weigh 160lbs, should i get a medium or large?
I have a Marmot Zeus and I am 6'1" and 160lbs also. I wear a medium and am pleasantly surprised that it fits almost perfect and sleeves are long enough (which is hard for me to find). It is slightly large around the middle, as most things are on me. Assuming that sizing is similar across the brand (which is a fair assumption to make in most cases) I would order a Med, I would venture to say it should be a perfect fit!
I took my own advice and ordered a MED in this jacket and it is TOO SMALL! Although the Zeus MED fits me perfect this has much less room across the shoulders/back area and shorter sleeves. I would suggest a large unless you have narrow shoulders and short arms. Even the MED is large across the midsection on me, but if I reach forward it constricts across the back, and that's no good!
I have had this jacket for several years and put it through a lot of hard wear. Extremely warm during the Yukon winter, I find it very comfortable, light, windproof and durable. No tears, but I did wear out the main zipper after three years, which Marmot replaced at no charge.
Ive used this sweater as a layer while backpacking during the winter. Its kept me warm well below freezing with a shell on. Im 5'5" and the small fits me well. Its a bit puffy for my liking. I prefer the look of the Mammut Down Sweater when using these as a layer. As a jacket around town it looks nice and keeps me warm. I like the soft lining on the collar, chin and in the pockets. Cut allows lots of movement. Worn my backpack over the jacket and it hasnt shown any signs of wear.
When I didnt need it, it packs down really well to fit into my pack.
Ok my husband is a size XL he is approx. 6ft 1' 240 lbs .....
If you are looking for something below the hip, then I would probably look at another jacket. It will be close, but I think you are looking for something with more length. However, it you want to give this one a try, Backcountry.com has a VERY GOOD return policy. Hope this helps you, daq.
What is the back length on this coat ..I want below the hip ..?
The Guides Down Sweater won't reach below the hip. Depending on what size you are, and the size you pick, will ultimately determine where the hem falls ... but I think you'll find the length is below the belt, just above the butt. The length is about 27.5 (center back length), based on size medium. The Guides Down Hoody is an inch longer.
This is a great jacket it fits perfectly for my son he is15 and 6 ft 2 and it looks a little bulky but its a great fit its very warm but its still roomy to wear something underneath
Simon Fryer of the Colorado Mountain School reviews the Marmot Guides Down Sweater from the 2010 Ouray Ice Festival in Ouray, CO. Learn more about the Colorado Mountain School at http://totalclimbing.com and learn more about Marmot at http://marmot.com.
Does this jacket have exactly the same fit as the Marmot Guides Down Hoody?
Does the Hoody get in the way of closing up a shell zipper or is there enough length in the hoody?
Does anyone know the weight of this jacket?
Right around 1 lb 5 ounces.
This is a very warm coat. I have worn this coat everyday for about 3 weeks now and have not been disappointed. I was really surprised with how well the coat repels water and maintains it warmth. I really like how it fits and how soft and comfortable. I am 6'4" 235lbs and I have an XL. This is one of my favorite coats.
Okay I have had a Rab Peak Down smock for the past 13years and it has been a wonderful servant. It has been equally great on the highstreet and on the rock face belaying but after much selecting I decided on the Marmot Guide Down Sweater.
The look is fantastic but it just isn't as warm as I had expected. The loft is inferior to my Rab jacket even though it has pretty much the same specs. I put this down to the construction of the jacket. The jacket doesn't have the stitch through baffle construction of the Rab which prevents cold spots in windy conditions. The jacket rides up when you raise your arms despite it's reputed angel wing construction and it feels a little short in the body.
In it's defense if I had never had the Rab I would have thought it was pretty good. The wicking fabric at the collar and zip protector is very snug and it is well made but unfortunately it feels like I have taken a step back with this jacket.
