Great inexpensive down jacket

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:Runs large
  • Height: 6'3"
    Weight: 205 lbs
    Size Purchased: large

I purchased this jacket on a recommendation from Backpacking magazine as an alternative to Arcteryx's, Marmot's and Montbell's higher end offerings. The coat wears a little large. Overall, I'm very pleased with the coat and its loft.


Good looking but missing some features

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

I ordered this Montbell jacket together with the Marmot Ama Dablam Jacket knowing I only needed/want one and I would return one of them. I ended up returning this Montbell. The marmot jacket is just a little bit thicker/warmer. I also like the napoleon pocket and the hand warmer that the Marmot has.


The best bang for your buck!

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

I got this jacket for casual use and summer-time mountaineering where I don't need a full sized parka to keep me warm. I was initially planning on buying an Arc'teryx Thorium AR but went with this guy in the end since it had higher quality down fill and was half the price (on sale). So far, I've used this jacket down to about the mid-20s (with just base layers) and it's been great. Very warm for it's weight and the pockets pack plenty of heat for when your fingers begin to numb. Also, the down leakage is minimal and it packs down quite small into the included stuff sack. The hood is big enough to fit over a helmet which is a great plus but does cinch down when you need it to. As reference, I'm 6', 130 lbs, more legs than torso, and the small gives me a more fitted, casual fit.


My first ever down jacket

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

I always thought of down jackets as being bulky and heavy. This jacket is crazy light and really warm. I've worn it with a t-shirt in 30 degree weather and didn't get cold. The hand warmer pockets are excellent. I am 6ft and 195 lbs and I bought a Medium... it fits nice, it even has enough room to fit a thick sweatshirt underneath.


very nice jacket

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

Bought this jacket about two weeks ago. So far so good, great buy for the amount of down and warmth. Allows for more layering than other european cut jackets-whether youre throwing it over a softshell or layering with a fleece. Nicely cut for more muscular builds. Im 5'9 190 muscular build Large fits great hangs over the butt just enough but not too far by any means, sleeves are perfect length

I'm 6'5, weigh 225 lbs, and have a 35 inch waist. I seem to lie somewhere in between an XL and XXL. Does this jacket run big?

Also, will this be warm enough for temps in the 20s (F) with a wind chill? Thanks!

Hi Johnny. I went into a store the other day to try these on. I am 6'2'' but I only weigh 160 lbs with a 32 in waist and a 34 in inseam. I normally wear a M in jackets, but in the MontBell jackets, I needed to move up to a L because the sleeves were longer, as well as the torso length. So, they run small. I would go with the bigger option also because you may need to wear a fleece layer underneath if it does happen to get colder. Also, this jacket should keep you warm down to about 20 degrees without any other layers because it has 3.5 ounces of 800 fill down, which is generally more down than other comparable jackets. Plus, they are thin enough to still be able to throw a shell on over it. This is my advice; maybe someone who has similar dimensions as you can provide a more precise size review. I hope this helps!
