An ultralight, highly packable mid-layer that adds warmth to any winter adventure.

Where fleece layers fail, the hooded MontBell Women's Ultralight Down Inner Park excels. This warm jacket provides a dependable, warmth-retaining layer in a packable, half-pound design. Perfect for lunch breaks in the backcountry or as a mid-layer under your weatherproof shell jacket, this quilted, zippered parka uses 800-fill power goose down insulation to lock in your body heat and warm your core.

  • Insulated, adjustable hood retains more warmth in cold weather
  • Elastic cuffs and an adjustable hem seal out frigid air and help secure the parka when putting on and taking off outer layers
  • Two hand-warmer pockets let you stash away your fingers while waiting for a break in the clouds
  • Two internal drop-in pockets hold a cell phone, MP3 player, and other items you need to insulate

Great for light weight backpacking

Great fit. Love the hood. Good amendment to my lightweight backpacking gear.

Is the small really made for chest sizes...

Is the small really made for chest sizes only up to 31"? I'm wondering if my 33" chest would fit into a small like it usually does or if I should order a size up?

Best Answer Responded on

I measure 36" (all back and small breasts) and the large fits me perfectly. The MontBell UL Down Inner Parka seems to run smaller than the last Montbell UL Parka I purchased. You also need to consider what you might be wearing underneath the parka and how much room that will take up. Also measure your arm length - I hate sleeves that are too short. My tendency would be to order a medium given your stats.

How do they do it?

How does Montbell manage to create something so feather light and yet so warm? Straight up sorcery. Just got back from a tour in negative temps. Wore this as an outer layer on the skin up and a mid-layer on the ski down and i was toasty the whole time. Packs smaller than a PBand J sandwich. Note on sizing: seems like these run small--look at the size chart before ordering. I am normally an XS in most brands and ordered the medium and it fit perfectly. Enough room to layer underneath but not baggy. Wahoo!

Love this jacket!

I am in love with jacket. The cut makes it easy to layer underneath and it's thin enough to be a great midlayer. This jacket is incredibly warm and weighs almost nothing. I really like the little bit of stretch towards the wrists in this jacket as well. The material is a little thin feeling, but it is a inner jacket and not a parka. All and all if your looking for something light and warm this jacket is it!

super puffy

great lightweight puffy that is super warm. my girlfriend wears it all the time, this jacket is always in her pack from summer camping to winter ski tours. everybody should have a lightweight puffy that is always close by.

My uniform

I love this down jacket. I wore it all summer, and my friends called it my uniform. I wore it all fall. Now I am wearing it everyday this winter! It is great as a light weight coat, but it's awesome as a layer under a shell when skiing also.

I love this jacket. I usually don't order stuff online because I have an unusually long torso, but this jacket fits so well. I got the rust and it's the perfect color. More coppery/red than in the picture.I am 5'6", 130lbs. I got the small and it's perfect. It's super lightweight and warm, good thing we got a big snow storm so I can try her out.

too big

I loved the color (I got the rust) and features of this jacket and it seemed exremely warm for its weight. I chose this one because I heard Montbell ran smaller than some other brands. I am 5'2" and 110 lbs and it was just too loose for a layering piece for me so I had to return it. I wish they made an X-small.

I'm looking for a light down jacket I can...

I'm looking for a light down jacket I can just wear around town but is still durable. How tough is the outer material? Will it stain easily/rip easily?

Responded on

eh, i think you can do better. this is the "inner" parka, meaning it is more ideal for use in layering underneath a shell. the nylon outer "shell" of this jacket is less waterproof & less durable than a lot of other outer materials. this is made with ultralight materials that do have a strong weight/tear strength ratio, but the abrasion resistance isn't great. i'd say this is worth it for the folks who are looking for ultralight, but i'm thinking there are better jackets out there for around-town (ab)use.

Responded on

There are pros and cons to using this jacket around town. I bought it for around-town use and it is exceptionally warm for its ultralight weight. It packs down super-small in my purse while I’m indoors—no need to carry my jacket around or find a place to hang it at the bar. The quilting pattern is flattering, and multiple women have stopped me to ask what the jacket’s name is and where I got it, because it’s so sleek and non-bulky.
Those are the upsides to the jacket. The downside is that, when it comes right down to it, the material is a tad delicate. I made the idiotic mistake of carrying my skis on my shoulder while wearing this jacket, and I tore the shoulder fabric. So if you’re going to put the jacket in contact with any significant abrasion, then no, it may not stand up to it. It may be most practical to use it for MontBell’s intended purpose, which is layering beneath shell jackets during snowsports.

I am wondering if a small will fit me. I am 5'4" and100lbs. Most jackets look way too big. Thank you.

Check the size chart and see if you fall into the small category. I have heard that MontBell, being a Japanese company, tends to size their products on the smaller side.

Money for the money

As someone who tends to pack too much for weekends away and to be cold all the time, this jacket has been money — and worth the money. It stuffs up so small, and it also works so well under the shell I wear skiing. I was also surprised by its length, which keeps any air from sneaking up my back. My only complaint might be that I can't get the hood to be completely tight around my face while skiing, so sometimes there's a bit of a gust, but with a headband or hat, it's no problem at all.

Is this parka at all waterproof?

super light and warm!

i live in illinois and it has been on and off cold (like 4F the other day) and this little jacket is great. i have traded in my super puffy button up down jacket for this one. it keeps me much more insulated and the ripstop material is great for keeping out the wind. i have the rust color and it is great, really! not ugly as stated in another review. i would definitely say it's in the realm of orange and not brown. however, i'm not one for fashion... today when the sun came out and the high was about 25F i was actually hot with a long-sleeved shirt on underneath. my only concerns are that some feathers have escaped and that if you have a dog that likes to jump you want to be careful as the material is a bit fragile. overall, really great!

Definitely Ultralight

This is a well-made, ultralight minimalist piece. MontBell was thoughtful with the design, including the features you most need and nothing you don't. There are no zippers on the pockets, but the inner pockets are quite deep so you're stuff probably won't fall out. They're designed to be able to accommodate water bottles. There is a good draw cord system on the hem and for the hood which actually works. I think the hood might fit over smaller, more streamlined helmets (for skiing or climbing),though it's probably on the edge. The jacket is a great insulator for it's weight, though this will definitely be an inner jacket for me for all but the mildest of temperatures. I also love the cuffs which look they will stay put and keep out a draft.

I wear a medium in most jackets and shirts, and this medium fit me well. I have room for a light to mid-weight fleece underneath (though almost a tight fit) if need be, but it is still fitted enough that I think it will be okay over just a base layer too.

Rust Color is Nothing Like the Photo

I recently purchased this jacket for my wife thinking the "Rust" would be a good color (in the photo it looks like a pumpkin or deep orange). In reality, it's a very ugly rusty brown.

Responded on

You should not only base your review on the colour only , the construction and the quality should be reviewed as well . If possible , you should also take a picture of the "ugly rusty brown" to show us how ugly it is .

Responded on

I agree--it's good to mention in a review if a color is accurately portrayed, but really, is the jacket itself good? I've always been really impressed by MontBell and I've tried this jacket on before. It's awesome. Very lightweight and warm. Fabric is shiny too.

Responded on

I was about to purchase this jacket, but I wouldn't want to commit to a jacket long term if I don't like the aesthetic. A jacket should make you feel warm and sharp.

I have one of these w/o a hood in orange... love it. I refuse to get any more clothing tops in black.

Besides the superior function, I love the fact I can put it in a medium zip lock bag & throw it in my pack. Ziplock - just in case the camelbak malfunctions (which has never happened)

Responded on

I bought this jacket and I LOVE it. I've practically worn it everyday since. I LOVE the Mallard blue color and the two tone on the inside. It also keeps you super warm. I usually wear a small or xsmall but I bought this in a medium and it fits liks perfect. If you're debating to buy this item wait no longer it's worth every penny.

I am 5'9, about 140. I wear a medium in most jackets. Should I get a medium in this one?

Responded on

get a large. Montbell is a Japanese company, so their sizing is smaller than your usual American apparel.

Responded on

I'm 5' 8" 135 lbs & wear a MEDIUM in Montbell ultralight jackets (I have 2 of these w/o hood & 1 thermawrap action). excessive, but I use all 3 all the time!

Also remember, its not a warranty, but anything you buy from can be returned anytime. So if you buy it and then next year realize its absolutely hideous you can send it back.

Responded on

Yeah, backcountry lets you return anything anytime if you're not happy with it, so you don't need to worry all that much about specific brand warranties anyway. But yes, MontBell has a good warranty.

Best Jacket Ever

The best jacket ever in my opinion. I took it on my AT thru hike and it was worth every penny. It weighs practically nothing but still keeps you warm when it drops below freezing.
