    Details

    A wintertime luxury.

    Underneath its elegant design and rich details, the Marmot Women's Montreaux Down Coat is a cold-weather killer. The 700-fill down insulation's high warmth-to-weight ratio means you stay super warm without being weighed down by a heavy winter coat, and the down compresses easily for convenient packing on vacations. Marmot added its proprietary Down Defender treatment to the down so the feathers won't lose warmth if wetness happens to seep through the shell's DWR coating and the plush fleece lining's WR coating. The long length of this coat extends the down warmth past your mid-thighs so you stay extra cozy whether you're sporting slacks or boots, leggings, and a skirt. 

    The Montreaux also features an insulated hood that keeps your head nice and toasty so you don't have to squish your hair down with a beanie every day, and both the hood and its fashionable fur ruff are removable. Marmot lined the front pockets with micro fleece for a cozy feeling your fingers appreciate. The internal zippered pocket is the best place to protect your phone, and the internal drop pocket stores your gloves when you make it to work, completely warm and dry of course.

    Great Quality

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I love this coat so much, I bought the red one for my sister for her birthday. I bought the black color for myself and agree that it is more of a muted black, but it is still lovely. I needed a long coat to wear over top dresses. This coat hits me right above my knees. I normally wear a size 4 in coats, and originally ordered the small. I did not believe I would fit the medium. However, like everyone in the reviews stated, order up. This coat can be tight across the chest region, and I am an A cup. It is the design of the coat. Even though the small was slightly tight across the chest, I was worried the medium would be too large every where else. Surprisingly, it was not. Maybe just a little added length in the arms, but really the medium just gave me more room across the chest to move freely. If you will not layer, and love the fitted look, order your size. If you do plan to wear any type of sweater underneath, or can see your self shoveling snow with this coat on, order up. In terms of quality, the coat is great. I don't wish for snow, but I'm can't wait to see how warm this coat actually is.

    Super warm jacket

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    I bought this jacket for my wife who is always cold. She absolutely loves it and says that it is like wearing a sleeping bag. The jacket is nice enough to wear to work and is especially nice for walks on cold mornings & evenings.
    It is a little bit heavier than some of the other long down jackets out there but it is not a technical piece of gear so this shouldn't be a big concern.

    More like burnt sienna

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

    I was pretty excited to get this coat, but I was disappointed in the color. I think the red online looked like a metallic maroon. What I got was more like burnt sienna (like the crayola color). Also, the coat seemed quite compressed, as if it was at the bottom of the pile. I'm 5'2", 130lb and ordered the M. Length is good; I was looking for a longer coat. The sleeves were longer than I would like (down to middle of my thumb) and the arms seemed quite roomy/puffy. Like many other reviewers said, the chest area is tight. I'm not too concerned with this because it seemed to be ok. I can definitely wear a thick sweater or even a blazer comfortably in the coat. I also ordered the steel onyx, which is actually a really nice color. However, I'm just not that in love with it, so they're both going back. The steel onyx M was significantly puffier, and thus felt warmer, than the crimson coat. Not sure why this was. There are two internal pockets; one zippered and one without zipper. The coat overall is really nice; just not the perfect fit/color for me.

    Puff of love

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: XL

    This jacket feels like a soft hug of clouds. Almost too luxurious to want to do outdoor winter chores in- more like a hanging with your pup at the frozen beach, coffee in a winter downtown or morning on a car camping mountain top coat. It fit me tight across the chest (b-c cup) with anything other than a thin hoodie or base layer. Can wear with a fleece under- just don't hug anyone larger than you.

    The Keeper

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

    This is the coat I kept after buying 5 coats and trying several at REI. My needs seemed simple- warm coat, flattering fit, pack able, affordable. I also wanted interior pockets and a detachable hood. It wasn't so easy to find but this coat met most of my criteria. I do wish it fit abit more feminine. If Marmot would include waist adjustment I think it would be near perfection. It kept me warm on a recent trip to Utah and I was able to pack it in a backpack although it is not a "labeled" pack able. There is an issue with the zipper sticking somewhat as others have reported. Some of my other considerations include Arcteryx Nuri, Lole Katie, and a NF parka. Backcountry was great to work with. Speedy 2 day free delivery and painless return.



    Just what I was looking for

    I'd spent considerable time looking for a knee length down parka for my daily commute. After chatting with a gearhead, she suggested that I may want to give this parka a try. Even though it is a woman's parka, she felt its straight cut would work for a guy as well. It turned out to be a great suggestion. I got the steel onyx color in a size XL. As predicted it was a straight unisex type cut. Length was right to my knee caps with plenty of lengths in the sleeves and a roomy enough body to wear with a heavy sweater. I've now had it for nearly two months subjecting it to the full extent of a northeast winter. It has worked well in sub-zero temperatures along with 30 mph winds. It was purchased to keep me warm and it has passed with flying colors. This may be the best winter parka I've ever owned and I would recommend it to anyone, man or woman.

    Just what I was looking for

    For its specs, best in class...

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    • Size Bought: Large

    Over the course of 4 years (!)I did a great deal of research, try-outs covering all major brands common in the U.S. ... desperately searching for a winter coat that even comes close to my great, warm 550-fill comrades: a 1990 full-length coat (from a brand that no longer exists, purchased at EMS) and a 1993 men's parka (a NorthFace - when it was still an unassailably great brand). Both have outer shells - which the Montreaux does not. Both stop cold in its tracks: nothing gets in (... except rain, as they're not DWR). Over and over, across nearly all brands, shell or no shell, the weak spot on this generation of down coats: cold spots in the sleeves. So - for a coat with sewn-through baffles and no outer shell, the Marmot Montreaux is a dream. (Still *not* as warm as my old standbys...but much more attractive!) For me, it's warm enough to wear with a T-shirt, unlayered, down to 30 degrees Farenheit. The sleeves' baffles are definitely still the weakest link - but one I've decided to live with. Overall, the coat's lightness, length, *delightfully toasty* handwarmer pockets, plushy fleece lining (especially that collar!) and excellent hood make it a pleasure to wear. I do wish there were at least one small outer vest area (hidden zip) pocket rather than the two internal ones. With a shell, this coat would be *perfection*. (The Chelsea does have a shell, but its hourglass fit was odd on me.) And yes, the Montreaux does run a bit small, particularly if you are broad in shoulders or chest.

    I wish Marmot made something for women on the order of their Yukon - a men's parka and a monster cold-slayer. It has a ridiculous hood that makes you look like Robocop, but man, it's warm.)

    Funky Fit

    This is a lovely coat, nice construction, very warm, love everything about it - except the fit. As mentioned by others it is tight in the upper chest and arms. I'm 5'3" 130# 34A and normally fit size 6-8. Ordered Medium, fit fine other than WAY too tight across the upper chest. Armholes appear to be cut wrong; when moving arms chest tightens even more. Wanted this to work but sadly must return. Won't even try a Large because otherwise this fit fine.

    Love this coat.

    This coat is toasty warm. I was looking for a jacket that covered my legs. It comes down to just at the bottom of my knees. I can fit a very heavy knit sweater underneath. The quilting helps to tame the puffiness so you don't look like the Michelin man. I bought it in the Steel Onyx. It is a pretty color--not too light or too dark.

    So warm!

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

    I LOVE this coat! I'm one of those people who is always cold, so I was looking for the warmest coat possible. This coat has a lot of warm things going for it: long length, wind blocking fabric, and 700 fill down. It also has a lot of thoughtful little details like extra soft fleece on the upper lining and on the cuffs. I especially like the fleece cuffs because they really block drafts. I feel like I'm walking around in a sleeping bag -and I mean that in the best possible way! It's stood up to some pretty cold conditions here (like today, low 20s and 35mph winds) and kept me comfy. I highly recommend it to anyone who's looking for an extra warm coat. I see that some reviews found it to be too tight in the chest, but I'm a pretty small framed (32B) and have no problems with the fit.

    So Comfortable and Warm

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

    I love this jacket! I was in search of something longer to keep my legs warm at the bus stop w/kids. I wasn't sure about the sizing after reading other reviews so I ordered both an S and M. I'm 5'4" and 120lbs, I decided to keep the S. The M was just too big. I'm not one to wear a bulky sweatshirt or sweater underneath so the extra room wasn't necessary. I mostly wear 3/4 zip tops for fitness and they're not bulky and fit comfortably under this coat. The coat length falls just below my knee caps and I haven't had any issue getting in and out of car with it at that length. It does have a 2 way zipper if necessary to unzip for ease of movement. Many reviews also commented on the zipper being stubborn or difficult. I have to agree. You can't throw this jacket on in a hurry, the zipper is temperamental and needs to be set up just right before sliding the teeth into the zip in order for it to "catch" and zip up with ease. Yes, it's annoying, but I'm familiar with the issue since I have the same problem with an O.R. rain jacket. I love the hood and the fuzzy trim. I thought for sure I'd remove the trim but it's grown on me. The interior of the upper body has a soft fleece lining which I love and I love the same lining in the pockets, it really does keep my hands warmer on those frigid mornings. I bought the navy blue and get compliments on it all the time!

    Warm and cozy

    I was searching for a knee-length WARM coat and this one is great (I've purchased and returned others). The lining is a cozy fleece and it fits true to size. I love the pockets - especially the two interior pockets. My only complaint is that it doesn't have the easiest zipper. I wish it had snaps in addition to the zipper so that I could quickly snap it closed when running out. Otherwise, I'm very happy with the purchase.

    Warm but....not flattering

    I was very impressed with the quality and warmth, but the fit was awkward. I'm a 38C and 145 lb the Medium fit fine everywhere, but the chest was tight fitting, it looks like I have no boobs at all. I wish it had snaps over the zipper, too.

    Best Jacket Ive Ever Owned!!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I decided on this coat after being extremely disappointed after purchasing many coats such as the north face, Michael Kors, Calvin Klein etc. This coat puts every other one to serious shame. I usually wear a small but after talking to an expert on the site they recommended a medium which fits me well with space for layering. So I would recommend going a size up. coat hits a little over my knees which is nice because it keep my whole body warm. The fleece lined pockets are a very nice touch especially when you forget gloves, you don't miss them. Other great features are a removable faux fur trim on the hood, double zipper, wrist garder and an upper chest fleece lining.I get compliments when I walk around campus all the time. So on top of the awesome design it is very practical and keeps you VERY WARM (I can't stress this enough). Michigan winters can be very brutal with cold windshield and I have no complaints and am very satisfied. Worth every penny, and if you are on the border just do yourself a favor and hit add to cart. You will not regret it.

    Warm but weird fit

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Extra Small

    I have been on an endless search for the perfect down coat, and sadly, it continues. After reading the reviews I thought this would be the one, and I ordered my usual size because I am petite (5'1 and 108 lbs, 34b). The extra small was a good fit; sleeves were not too short, they were comfortable enough to wear a really thick sweater underneath, the length was right at my knees, and the lining is super soft and warm. However, the chest was too tight, and being the small chested woman that I am, this is not normally a problem for me. Also, the coat is very puffy and makes me look like the Michelin man just as much as any other down coat. Not really flattering or shape defining in any way.

    The warmest coat I own

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    • Size Bought: Medium

    I own TNF Metropolis and Patagonia Tres Parka. Both are great for varying conditions, but not super cold. This coat, however, while not as well fitted (sleeves are a tad short for me and shoulders are narrow, as am I) is extremely warm, and goes down to your knees. For freezing Massachusetts winter, this coat is just right. It's like wearing a sleeping bag. I am 140 lbs, 32 DD, with small shoulders and arms, and wear a Medium. This is the warmest coat I have ever owned. I wish it was made in ankle length. ( I also wish it were shaped like TNF coats... the best fit for me... long, thin arms, fitted, no extra room.)

    Like your favorite warm comforter

    Have not tested in winter conditions just yet, Ohio is back to a 50 degree spell again, but I will update once winter returns. Initial impressions have me hopeful. I immediately got overheated when I tried this on and zipped it up indoors. Serious heat. The lining inside the torso and neck is the most amazing soft , luxurious, and comfortable fabric ever. When you zip up the neck area it is very comfortable and warm. The outer fabric of the coat is not overly shiny or plastic looking or feeling; it has a nice soft, smooth, and solid feel to it. The coat has a classy look to it. The angled baffles help create a more streamlined appearance so you don't end up looking like the Michelin man. I love the fleece cuffs at the wrists, nice touch. The hood fits nicely, is adjustable, and removeable, as is the faux fur detailing. The hand pockets feel warm and comfortable. There are also two nice internal pockets, one zips and the other is an open, drop in style. As for the sizing, I wish there was a "fits a bit awkward" option, lol. I normally wear a small in most shirts (I'm a size 6) and a medium in coats so that I can have room to layer. In places the coat seems too big, but in others too small. There is a lot of extra room throughout the mid torso, maybe even more than one might expect that there should be in a medium on my size 6 frame, except in weird places it seems too small, such as through the chest/arm area. For example, under the arm pits when I move my arms around it appears to pull taught at one spot where the inner under side of the arm meets the chest (wearing a t-shirt underneath). I'm only a 34 B, so it isn't like my chest is causing undo tightness here. And when I reach inside, there seems to be space in the actual arms, chest, and armpit area for layering, so the tightness isn't happening exactly there either. Maybe just the design of the articulation of the arm is the issue? Not sure, but something is weird about the interaction between the chest/arms. If Marmot didn't have such a great warranty, I might consider returning, fearing the construction of this area might not hold up well over time, but their customer service rocks, so I'll take the gamble. It also almost feels a bit tighter than expected through the hip and leg area, but I'm hopeful this will keep wind out and not limit walking unneccessarily. The arms are short in length as well. I have short arms. Most coat arms drown my hands- not this one. The arms on this coat are almost too short, even for me! As for the overall length, I'm 5' 6" and it hits me just ever so shy of the top of my knees. I've read reviews of zipper issues, but I found the zipper very easy to use so far. I'll update again once I've actually used this in winter weather. I'm giving it an initial 5 stars, although 4.5 is probably more accurate, because despite the weird sizing and arm articulation issues, it still feels comfortable and incredibly warm, and the materials and construction overall are top notch.

    Tested in winter weather today leaving work. 5 minute walk in 18 F with light snow and winds. It was like walking in my own little bubble of warmth! Amazing! Will test for longer durations this week, with temps as low as 5 F predicted. Can't wait to see how my bubble of warmth holds up!

    Unanswered Question

    I'm 5'3", 125lbs. Which size? I usually wear size S/4-6 clothes. From the size chart it looks like I should be a medium, but several of the reviews have much larger women than me loving the medium. Any suggestions?

    Is the fur on the hood real?

    I've read through many reviews on sizing for this jacket. I tried the Montreal on in the medium and it was a bit snug, but large felt too roomy. Not sure how sizing compares on these two jackets what would you recommend for size, I'm 5'7, 145 lbs.

    sizing - I tried on a small in the montreal and it fit a little snug, but still fit. Tthe medium felt too big. based on reviewers here, it appears the montreaux runs smaller. i'm 5'10", 135#. what size do you recommend?

    Hey Sarah, I've tried both in a Medium and found them pretty similar in fit (minus the Montreaux being significantly longer, obviously)... if you were on the fence with the other jacket, I'd suggest ordering both and returning whichever doesn't fit. I'd be happy to make sure you get a free return label to send back the one you don't want-- feel free to reach out. :)

    What temperatures is this coat good for? Is it sufficient for New Englad winters (for someone who is very cold) or do I need Canada Goose? I am new to the area.

    How durable is the outer fabric? Can it with stand snow shoeing in the woods and bramble with two Bernese Mountain Dogs?

    I'm 5'11" and 140 lbs. with broad shoulders and 38-31-38 What size would you recommend?

    Hi Anne, I wouldn't know for sure but I can tell you that for me, it fit true to size. I am 5'3 and under 100 pounds, the extra small fits me great. It is down to my knees due to my small size but it keeps me WARM! If I want to wear a thick sweatshirt underneath, it can get a little tight in the underarm area. The jacket is so warm, I wouldn't dare layer it but if that is something you think you may do then I'd take into consideration the snug fit under the arms

    How do I adjust the hood on this coat?

    At 5'11," 135 lbs, I ordered a size Large to get the longer sleeves. The coat, however, was way too roomy, and it's going back. Love the coat, otherwise. Any one know what the difference is, sleeve-length-wise, between the Medium and the Large?

    I am buying this for my boyfriend's mom for Christmas. I'd say she is 5'5" or so. Her bust makes her look larger than she is. I'd call her mid-weight for a typical American 55 year old. My family doesn't have a bust issue so I don't know how to guess size for her. She asked for an XL. I (5'8"/145) have a M in an older style. Do you think that XL will be appropriate for her? It looks like some people say this runs a little small . . . what is exchange policy if I buy now and deal with size after Christmas??
    Thank you, friends!

    (Posting under my husbands acct.)

    In my opinion this coat only runs a tad small in the upper shoulders for taller bigger shouldered ppl. I'm 5'7" athletic/slender build 130lbs. I could wear a small but sleeves would be too short. Medium fits me best. XL seems like way too much coat for 5'5"?? This is a long length coat...I'd think the shorter thigh length Montreal would be more appealing to ppl on the shorter side.

    Unanswered Question

    Just got this coat for my mom. How do you adjust the hood? How are the elastic cords secured once you pulled them tighter?
    Steel gray is a great color. The coat is beautiful and appears to be warm but theres no way of knowing until she wears it in a polar vortex. Ill be sure to write a review once its worn. Til then, just need to solve the mystery hood issue. Thanks Backcountry. Youre the best

    I am ordering for my wife. She is 5'8" 135-140, fairly long arms. Probably a 34C bust. Overall slim to athletic build. Trying to decide between a Medium or Large. We live in Colorado. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Posting from my husbands profile ๐Ÿ˜‰....I'm 5'7" (longer arms)130lbs slender build. I wear a medium in this jacket. The Large is too bulky around the middle. The jacket fits really nice but I would prefer another 1/2 inch in the sleeves and a hair more space in the shoulders... I find that's typical w my build.

    What size would you choose for a person who is 5' 7 and 190 lbs?

    Based on those measurements alone, it would be really difficult to guess your size! Check out our size guide here - others have said that this jacket runs a little small, so if you are right in between sizes or want to layer up underneath, then I'd size up!
