Light is right.
When you've spent too many miles to count on the trail and are just shy of feeling frozen, whip out the Marmot Men’s Ama Dablam Down Jacket upon reaching camp for furnace-like warmth. The lofty 800-fill goose down provides serious warmth whenever you need it and is highly compressible, so you can pack it down into the interior pocket for easy storage. And while it's best worn layered underneath a shell when foul weather rolls in, the Ama Dablam features down-proof ripstop fabric that withstands mild weather conditions.
Now, when you've finally defrosted and settled in for an evening at camp, flip up the attached and adjustable down-filled hood for an extra dose of coziness as you cook up your choice of dehydrated grub. Multiple pockets make storing necessities, like extra salt or pepper, easy and readily accessible. And, if you are getting serious in the camp kitchen, Marmot's Angel-Wing Movement allows for a full range of motion, so the jacket doesn't ride up when you're really getting into the groove of cooking. Not to mention, a fully adjustable hem makes it easy to not only secure warmth, but enables you to keep a hot water bottle by your side for extra warmth as the temperatures outside your vestibule door dip below comfortably, err, painfully cool.

Runs a bit big but other very comfortable and warm

I just received my Ama Dablam down jacket, and I absolutely love it. It is lightweight and although its not winter yet, I can tell from just trying it on in my house that its going to be very warm. Love the angel wing movement! Finally I can raise my arms and not pull the bottom of the jacket up above my waist! For size reference, I am 5'10, 220 lbs, and the large fits me perfectly over a single shirt, with enough room left for at least another layer, maybe two.
I can't wait for the cold air of winter to arrive so I can put this jacket to the test. I am sure it will pass with flying colors. A+ all the way around!
Super Warm and light!

I bought this jacket for my son for Christmas and absolutely love. Because we wear the same size jackets, I steal it from him quite a bit. It's all you need for temps in the teens and above. I bought my son a medium and it fits perfect for he and I. He's 5'-5" and I"m 5'-3". This gives me a loose fit so I can wear another layer underneath if need be. For the most part, I just wear this over a t-shirt. It's great for hiking, playing in the snow, whatever. I love how so much, I'm going to order one for myself!
no insulation in one of the arms
Very disappointed in this product - there is no insulation in one of the arms. Now I have to return it. I shouldn't have tried to replace my old Marmot jacket.
I am looking for a jacket to wear daily in a dry arctic climate that can reach -30c to -40c with the windchill, does this jacket provide enough wind protection in that condition?
How much down is in the jacket?
What's the layout of the down baffles?
The down has 800-fill goose down for lightweight warmth. (Claimed Weight1 lb 3 oz.)
Bavarian baffling is used, as far as I can see.
Claimed weight of 1lb 3oz with 800-fill down would suggest that this jacket is *crazy* warm. Is it? Like spectating-a-ski-race-in-Montana-in-January warm? How warm is it, for example, in comparison to the Marmot Guides Down? Or, though I know this is probably asking too much, how about a comparison to other common down jackets, like the Patagonia Down Sweater?
