For the big ones.
Marmot designed its Men's 8000M Down Parka for summiting peaks like Everest, so you know you can rely on its warmth wherever you roam. This parka's MemBrain shell provides superior waterproof protection that remains breathable for your comfort, and the high-loft 800-fill down insulation brings the warmth without the weight. Marmot reinforced the shell's sleeves and shoulders with Cordura for extreme durability. Angel-Wing Movement ensures a full range of motion so you can trek without this parka holding you back.
The 8000M Down Parka also features a fixed hood to protect your dome and a powder skirt to protect your bum. The hood has a muff for extra warmth where you want it most, and the adjustable cuffs have internal, fleece-lined thumbholes for extra comfort. You can always access the Pack Pockets even with a backpack and harness on, and the flash pocket is perfect for passes and identification cards. Marmot also included internal mesh storage pockets for gloves and sacks to both stuff and store this toasty jacket in.

- Q & A
couldn't ask for more
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Medium
the jacket is great, real lofty like 4 inches thick. all the adjustments are great. but only 2 can really be fine tuned with gloves on. the hood has 3 adjustments for brin depth and height. large pockets measuring 9x17 for the outside that is also double layered with a felt inner pocket the same felt on the cuff feels excellent when you put your hands in there the down flufs up in between your fingers and is a great hand warmer its giant down pillows for your hands soft and warm. the inner pockets can fit a 1l nalgene just fine. 4 of the 5 pockets have hooks so you dont drop what ever is hooked in. the powder skirt allows you to use the inside of the jacket as one big pocket without having to worry about loosing anything out the bottom. I got longer arms measuring 36 inch so its hard to get sleeves to fit right but this jacket fits perfect the fleece cuff feels great and goes just a little past my wrist . the inside material is soft and feels nice but probably could be torn by a rogue hangnail so watch out for it but the outside is nice and burly especially the reinforced areas around the arms and hood. I like the zippers no problems zipping it up yet and the draft tube is nice and tough so i don't think its ever going to get caught zipping it up. the small zipper on the side of the main is great for throwing stuff in and out of the jacket without having to unzip the whole thing and loose all your warmth a 1L nalgene goes in and out just fine . a compression sack and storage sack came with it so that was a bonus.
Superb expedition jacket

Wonderfully warm and well designed jacket.
Too warm for car or bus wear, it shines when below freezing.
Fit is generous but spot on. I'm 5'8" and 155 pounds, medium worked very well.
Jacket has excellent wind protection, powder skirt and a built in muff to keep the drafts out when not wearing the hood.
Chunky double zipper, flap sealed, several inside pockets, with a zippered pass through access so you don't have to open the jacket to take stuff out from an inside pocket.
Two big zippered outside double pockets, one lined and the other for stuff. Comes with a stuff sack that could double as a pillow and a carry bag.
The jacket does not dangle as it is rump length, not thigh length, so it won't get caught or interfere with gear.
Have returned it despite these virtues, because I could not use it routinely here in NYC, it is too much for urban wear.
7 and change.
