Guiding your way through extreme cold with wonderful warmth.

When the weather's so cold that skiers flee the resorts, you slide a ski shell over the Marmot Men's Guides Hooded Down Jacket and enjoy the solitude of the winter wonderland. The 700-fill down insulation keeps you nice and toasty on those chilly chairlifts, and the Down Defender treatment helps the insulation retain its loft so you stay warm if it gets wet. Polyester ripstop wraps up this wonderful warmth with durability that won't let feathers poke out. Both the interior and exterior have a water-resistant coating to keep you doubly protected against wet weather.

Angel-Wing Movement gives you unrestricted mobility on the slopes, and it stops the body from rising up your waist when you stretch and twist around. A wind flap behind the front zipper prevents blustery breezes from seeping in the jacket. Hook-and-loop cuffs keep warmth in, and the elastic drawcord at the hem seals cold out. And the handwarmer pockets have a soft fabric to keep your hands cozy and toasty when you're traversing the resort plaza en route to a well-earned post-shred meal.

  • 700-fill down insulation with Down Defender
  • Regular fit, Angel-Wing Movement
  • Wind flap behind front zipper
  • Hook-and-loop cuff adjustments

Here's what others have to say...

Does this jacket have a drawcord or elastic at the waist part?

it has an elastic draw cord at the waist

Anybody can tell me,
for a man 5'10 and 175lb,
L or XL is better?
many thanks.

Hey Rubens,

I would recommend you go with a Large in the Marmot Guides Hooded Down Jacket. The XL will definitely be too roomy. Feel free to contact me directly with any more questions on this or other Marmot Jackets or if you are interested in setting up an order.


Best down jacket I've ever owned

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I've had mine for about 3 years now and love it. It's still holding up great and is incredibly warm for how small it packs down. It packs into its own pocket which is about a 2 liter cylinder. I live in Alaska and use it regularly in 25-0 degree weather with a light sweater on underneath and it dose great.


Great jacket thus far

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

Did a fair bit of research and came back to this jacket. Marmot got it's start making down jackets after all! Water resistent down, decent loft, hood, and price sold me. I'm 6'1" with long arms and the large fits well with room to layer. Kept me warm during most recent cold spell here in the Midwest with windchill down to 20 below. Have worn it almost daily for 3 weeks, and have yet to see it lose a feather!

Only nitpicks are that I agree the hood fit is a bit wonky. Wish it had another adjustment in the back. Would be nice if it had softer material around chin. We'll see how it holds up in the winters to come eh?

Is the hood removable?

Hi there,

No, the hood on this model is fixed and cannot be removed. Please feel free to get in touch with us with any further questions or concerns!


Just Right.

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

I've had this jacket for about a year, and love it. It fits very well, is super warm, and very lightweight. I have the size M, am 5'10 and 140 lbs. It's not too tight, not too loose. The length also works well for me - it's enough to keep me covered no matter how I may be stretching, but not too long to feel bulky or restrictive. It warms me up really quickly, and I love that it compresses into itself as a nice little compact package of warmth for whenever I may need it (just don't store it like this for extended periods, it's down...).

My only gripe would be that the front of the hood occasionally goes crooked on me. Not really a big issue, it only affects my peripheral vision, but I do find that a bit annoying sometimes...

Is this jacket machine-washable?

Best Answer

Hey Giovanna V.,

Yes this jacket is machine washable. But you must strictly abide by the care instructions on the tag. It is also not a bag idea to use some tennis balls to help re plump the down fill while drying the jacket.

Does the hoody fit with a helmet?

Hey Syllarry,

Yeah, the hood is designed to fit over a helmet.


Decent jacket, bad customer service

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

Jacket was comfortable and warm but ripped the first season. I contacted Marmot and was told to submit a warranty repair. When I got to the site it said I had to pay $30 for the repair and I entered my credit card info. I printed the mailing label and shipped it off. I got confirmation they had received it on 3/27 and I used their online form to get an eta as per directions on 3/29. No response. Waited until 4/6 and again asked for a status update. No response. On 4/17 I got an email that Marmot doesn't cover tears and that they would need $30 to repair it. I called in as I had already submitted my CC info for this $30 repair. They told me it was never charged so I told them to go ahead. They let me know then that it would be another three weeks or so and to call if I needed any more info.

Lesson learned...bad customer service processes and long wait times if you ever need a repair on a Marmot product.

Update: Just got a call from Marmot that they finally were getting around to charging my CC but it failed. Since it had been so long Wells Fargo had sent me a new card after all of the security breaches lately. Waited on hold for 30 minutes before finally giving up.


Arms are TIGHT!

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

I wear a medium in almost everything including Marmot clothing. This jacket is great, except that my arms felt like they were being compressed. It was far more than the typical loftiness I get from most down jackets. When I was bending my elbows, I literally could feel a sense of compression that I don't get with any other down jackets or belay coats. Unless you're built like a skinny stick (my arms are NOT big), avoid this one. My other complaint is that there is no volume adjuster on the hood. One velcro placement in the back would add a lot of functionality. However, the tiny arms are a critical flaw.

I have no idea how Down Defender performance since I didn't own the jacket long enough to put it through its paces, but it is an otherwise great value jacket with a durable feeling nylon shell and plenty of warmth.

marmot change goose down to duck down this...

marmot change goose down to duck down this year,does the duck down in it have odor?

Best Answer


I have a feeling that a lot of ducks out there are going to be offended by your question. They have played second fiddle to their geese friends long enough, but now they are being accused of a fowl smell.

Seriously though, I have worn older Marmot down jacket that have goose down as well as the newer models with duck down and I have not noticed any odor from either jacket, nor have I noticed a difference in warmth.



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

Very warm, had it out I'm the low 20s and with the hood up it's easily warm enough. Feels light and not at all bulky. Well made, big pockets and is very practical. I haven't hiked in it yet, mostly walking the dog and commuting so far. Big thumbs up, would definitely buy again, and the hood is a must when it gets really cold.


SO SO Close To Being Perfect.

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

This jacket is very warm and runs true to size. It is WAY better than any North Face jacket that I have ever owned. The outer fabric is water and wind resistant but is VERY STRONG at the same time. But, there are a few issues that need to be fixed to be perfect (but its still getting 5 Stars). The arm movement seems limited from time to time and it is a little heavy and hot in temps above 40 degrees(even though its not really a bad thing). Overall, I think that I would buy this product again and I am going to start buying from Marmot now! So long North Face!

Wear a Nike pro combat hyper warm and you'll be set .
