    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.

    • 800-fill goose down assures lightweight warmth
    • Angel-Wing movement ensures unobstructed mobility

    Shocker

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

    Previous model was a winner but this one is a shocker: cheap feeling materials all around, down distribution is imbalanced with some baffles in the arms that feel almost empty of down resulting in my arms freezing. It’s like they tried to cut corners by making all bad Design decisions. The down is high loft but there just isn’t enough of it and this jacket just doesn’t keep me warm. Nothing redeeming at all about this jacket

    Fit and temp range for Ama Dablam

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    I'd like to comment of this jacket's fit and the range of comfortable temperatures, two things that were unclear to me from the other great reviews here. I bought this jacket about three weeks ago and have used in in a variety of Boston winter days.
    First the fit. I was looking for a jacket that would be lightweight but warm enough for almost all Boston weather. I also wanted plenty of room for layering if necessary. I'm 70 years old, 5' 10" tall, 190 pounds and sadly that weight is distributed around my belly than my chest and shoulders. Shirt sleeve is 33 inches. I bought an XL. It fits just as I had hoped. Not baggy but not tight either. Easily enough room to layer a mid-weight fleece. The sleeves could accommodate arms a couple inches longer than mine. But the velcro cuff closures make it easy to adjust to my length.
    Regarding temperature range, I have worn it comfortably from 15-45 degrees, nothing more vigorous than walking a couple miles. Using today as an example, it's 26 degrees with an 8-10 mph breeze. I wore the jacket over just an UA polyester tee and went for a 1 mile walk. I was very comfortable, even walking into the wind. There was no sense of cold getting past the zipper. When I took off the jacket, I was a little sweaty. I am pleased with this temp range. If anything, the jacket seems warm at temps below what I would have thought based on some of the other reviews here.
    And it hasn't lost a feather.
    Hope this helps.

    Great Belay Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: small
    • Height: 5'3"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    This is a great belay jacket and all around down jacket. It is a tad warmer than a lot of popular down jackets (125g of down) but still plenty light for general outdoor activities. I like it a lot at the crag or boulder field on cold days because it goes over any other layers I might have on and doesn't feel constricting like a lot of similar weight jackets. I attribute this to a looser cut through the shoulders and sleeves. A lot of jackets seem to feel really tight and uncomfortable, particularly through the sleeves (climber forearms?) when throwing them over a couple layers, hoodie, etc, but this one feels great. On top of that is has a double zipper for easy belaying and cozy fleece pockets. All in all, it is a great all around midweight down jacket that is good at the crag as well as hanging around camp.

    Great Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    I purchased this jacket for everyday wear and have used it on a few backcountry excursions, and I feel like I made a great choice. It has all of the qualities I have come to expect from Marmot: well made, thoughtfully designed, durable, and light-weight. The waist draw cord keeps out wind and snow and the hood synches down to keep you warm. I love the fleece lined pockets and it packs down nicely in it's own inner pocket. The jacket is warm enough on it's own with out layers for chilly temps, and it has enough room to accommodate layers when it's really cold.

    Marmot Warranty is a joke

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'
    • Weight: 185lbs

    Jacket was coming apart at the seems and losing down. Marmot didn’t stand behind their supposed warranty and said my jacket was falling apart because I didn’t wash it often enough. Stay away from Marmot there are better brands that stand behind their product out there.

    Warm and Functional.

    I never leave this jacket behind on a trip. I live in the Colorado Rockies and this thing kills the game! Whenever I strap this bad bear on, I get the same response from my friends "Dude that thing looks warm". If you are looking for a nice jacket that packs down to a good size. Snag this jacket. ps my good friend has the patagonia down and he is constantly loosing feathers. I have rarely noticed any down slip through this fabric.

    runs a little big

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    I got it to put on when I stop and it is perfect for layering over a base layer, light fleece, and a shell. If I wanted to wear this jacket without as much under it I would definitely size down to Medium but idk if that would be too small either. I'm 6' 175-178, long arms. It's pretty warm, warmer than Patagonia down sweater that I usually have at camp.

    My man's new favorite jacket

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: Runs large

    My boyfriend got this jacket before our recent trip to Iceland, and he's absolutely in love with it. It's super warm and lightweight, while still being compressible and not too bulky. The DWR treatment is great as well, since it rained a ton while we were traveling around the island. I'd say it runs a bit big, since he is normally a Large in most things, but when he tried on the Large in this jacket, he was swimming in it. The Medium was perfect for him (for context, he is about 5'9" and 170lbs).

    My man's new favorite jacket

    Does not run big

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: xl
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 230lbs

    I'm 6'2" 230lbs athletic build, it fits perfect and does not run big. If you are a hipster with a beard and loves tight, snugly fit clothes, look elsewhere. If anything, i wish it was 1" longer past my torso (non issue though). This a winter jacket that performs perfectly, it was 13F today with 40mph wind gust and i was hot by the time i made it to work after walking for 35 minutes.. Felt like i was wearing a cloud, great jacket..

    Totally agree with how warm it is. Just used it this past weekend here in NC mountains. Hiked at midnight, in the snow, 17 degrees, with winds anywhere from 25-30, and gusting 40-50. Just this jacket, a THIN Columbia Sol shirt, THIN Columbia hiking pants and UA Base 3.0 top and bottoms. I was TOO warm! Made me sweat, but couldn't take it off because then I would freeze because my shirt was wet. I think I'll have to just pack this jacket and put it on when I stop and rest. Its too warm to wear while moving around a lot. Don't get me wrong, I love it, but seriously, its made for COLD weather. See my other review below about the first time I used it.

    Awesome jacket

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 220lbs

    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!

    Yes, I used it last weekend with temps around 18-20 here in the mountains of NC. Just this jacket, a thin long sleeve Columbia Sol shirt, and UA 3.0 base layers. After 20 mins, I had to take it off because I was sweating. I will not use this jacket again until temps are much cooler. I have no doubt it will keep me warm down to at least zero, with base 3.0 on underneath. If you haven't tried UA base layers, I highly recommend them as well. Just be sure to pick according to your activity (1,2,3 or 4.0). It truly is a nice and WARM jacket. Angel wing movement is awesome as well. Thanks.

    Super Warm and light!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: medium
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    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.

      Unanswered Question

      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?

      Unanswered Question

      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?
