Guides Down Hooded Jacket
When the weather's so cold that skiers flee the resorts, you slide a ski shell over the Marmot Men's Guides Hooded Down Jacket and enjoy the solitude of the winter wonderland. The 700-fill down insulation keeps you nice and toasty on those chilly chairlifts, and the Down Defender treatment helps the insulation retain its loft so you stay warm if it gets wet. Polyester ripstop wraps up this wonderful warmth with durability that won't let feathers poke out. Both the interior and exterior have a water-resistant coating to keep you doubly protected against wet weather.
Angel-Wing Movement gives you unrestricted mobility on the slopes, and it stops the body from rising up your waist when you stretch and twist around. A wind flap behind the front zipper prevents blustery breezes from seeping in the jacket. Hook-and-loop cuffs keep warmth in, and the elastic drawcord at the hem seals cold out. And the handwarmer pockets have a soft fabric to keep your hands cozy and toasty when you're traversing the resort plaza en route to a well-earned post-shred meal.

Search is over
I've been searching for a light weight down jacket for a while and after trying dozens this one room the cake. From fit to features this jacket is amazing. I would highly recommend it. The jacket runs big so after trying the large I went with the medium. I'm 5'11 200lbs

Small Fit (140#, 5'7)
Used these reviews to figure out whether I'd purchase & size recommendations so I figured I'd share my experience. I'm 5'7, 140# with 38" chest. The small fits perfectly. I'd imagine it could easily accommodate up to 150# (and maybe 40" chest. I'd say the jacket runs true to size. The cut on the sleeves is slim, which I like, and is a little more regular fit around the waist area. As far as warmth, I've worn on 30F days (feels like 20*) and have had no issues. If it is in the 0-15* range, I'd probably do a sweater layer. Otherwise, a t-shirt/dress shirt should be good for any mid 30F weather. Hope this helps!

Like all Marmot jackets I own, it run one size larger. Got the medium just to check, but exchanged it for a small. I have a 42in chest. I used it in the city in subzero temp and also when reaching top of 4000 footers in the Adirondack and the Whites to keep me warm after the ascent . Some complaints I read in here relating the rather low insulation of the Guides Down are accurate in my experience when I was testing it with only a base layer or a t-shirt. But after adding a medium or heavy weight second layer, I was full comfy below freezing point. It compresses itself within the inner pocket to the size of a football.

Great Jacket - if it fits....
I had this jacket in XL for years and needed a new one. The new cut to this jacket has no taper so it fits accordingly. I have a 45" chest and ordered an XL (fits great through the shoulders and chest) but there was 12" of extra room at the hem (35" waist - 44" hips). The large didn't fit in the shoulders and chest and was still too roomy at the waist. This jacket would be passable for casual use layering over baggy clothes but if you're wearing trim items it may cause issues with the fit. I wouldn't wear it for active endeavors unless the fit doesn't give you the parachute effect. This is a tweener jacket for cold activities. Probably not warm enough for low-impact in very cold weather but really versatile from 0-40 degrees.

Sounds perfect if you're wearing a harness racked with screws. Thanks for the review.

Really warm, love the hood
I'm 5'10 athletic build and returned a large for an XL, I like to be able to wear a hoodie or a big sweater under my coats in the winter. The large fit me fine I just like the feel of the XL swallowing me up. Comes down a little further over my butt which makes it warmer too. It's super warm, especially if you keep the hood on. Probably too warm for skiing if it's above 15 degrees.

A simple jacket with good quality, very suitable for everyday wear, very warm and stylish!

A stand alone puffy
Finally, a jacket that stands alone. I'm so used to wearing the lightweight down jackets and being "comfortable". I got this jacket for one to wear and guarantee I'd be warm in any temps. Regularly I wear this jacket, with only a t-shirt underneath, on hikes with my dog after sunset when the temps are in the single digits. And I feel comfortable. It keeps me warm in cold and windy conditions. Bonus feature, for how puffy it is, it still packs down into the breast pocket!.

Minnesota Winter Jacket
This might be the best coat I've ever had for Minnesota winters. 5'11'', 200-ish lbs, 34 waist - I went with the large. Fits great. I use this daily walking the dogs in the late fall and throughout the winter. It's probably not warm enough to just wear a t-shirt under for extended periods, but it's great paired with a sweater, hoodie, or a base-layer. Does a great job at cutting down the wind out on those bone chilling nights. Velcro wrist straps are great for keeping warm air inside the sleeves. Double front zipper is an added bonus. I love this coat.

Definitely not the jacket for real cold
Nice jacket, not the lightest but for the money it’s a good down jacket. However, these people claiming it’s good for subzero temps are off their rockers. It’s basically a thicker, warmer puffy and still has sewn through baffles. It’s a step up from any of the lightweight down sweaters in terms of warmth and weight but don’t expect it to be a winter parka.

Nice quality, but not warm enough.
I brought this product and just returned it. I live in Boston, it is too light for me to fight with the winter. Overall, it is a nice-built down jacket. If you living in the near areas, go look for a heavier jacket, this one is too light for you.

Super puffy jacket
I just moved to the mountains of Colorado from Louisiana so I recently found myself in need of a good basic jacket. I found this one at a great price point after searching in vain for a jacket in the ladies dept (I'm a chunky gal, not a common thing in these parts, and I don't like frou frou colors). This jacket is very warm, so far (I'm a sissy when it gets remotely chilly) and it's roomy enough at an XL to wear a sweater underneath. The fleece lined hand pockets are great, in addition to the extra pockets on the front and inside. The ripstop is hardly noticible on the exterior. It's super soft and very breathable. I like how it has a water resistant treatment and extra synthetic fill on exposed areas so it should hold up once the weather gets colder. I'm very happy with the purchase especially at less than 200 bucks. It seems very well made. The stitching is tight and even, no down poking through. I don't plan on doing a lot of mountain stuff because I work and go to school full time. I don't doubt that it'll hold up for more than a couple of seasons. I ordered this along with some Sorel boots when the snow started, and chose next day air. Backcountry does not play when it comes to shipping! It was at my house the next day! We'll see how she holds up when it gets really cold. I'll update if any issues arise.

The best puffy jacket
Warm very warm
January 1, 2018
I bought this jacket last year but returned it right after I tried it on. Pros- It fits nicely. It looks nice. Cons- I thought it was a little light weight and definitely couldn’t be worn if the weather got too cold. Idiotic design flaw- some fool designed this so the metal grommets are up against your chin/lips/face when you zip it all the way up. So however cold it is outside can be felt through that metal. Also the holes give the wind and cold a chance to blow right onto your chin. Idiots.

Warm, Dry, and Comfortable!
Love the fit and breathable capabilities, keeps me warm on the chill slopes and i don't even put a hard-shell over it. pockets keep your hands nice and toasty. combined with some good base layers i'm never cold with this on!

Warm and Cozy
Got the Marmot Guides jacket for my boyfriend as his heavy/serious winter jacket and it is incredibly warm. The 700 fill down does not disappoint, especially for the price point and affordability of this jacket. It is a little larger than other brands who he typically wears a size L in, but it works and fits great. He is 5'10 and 165lbs for reference.

Coat is nicely constructed but does not live up to the reviews that I had read .. definitely not enough coat for temps less than 25 degrees ....

I’m around 6’ about 190lbs. I wear a medium in a North Face Denali. Do u think I could swing a medium in this? I don’t want the jacket to be too “roomy”. Thanks.

I am 6’2 , 215 lbs, my size xxl ??? Thanks
March 11, 2019
Hey James, What size do you normally wear in shirts and jackets? This jacket fits true to size, I'd order what you normally order. But a size XL seems like it would be the perfect fit for you. A size XXL may be too big.
December 10, 2017
Hello, I’m 5”8 and about 160-165 lbs. Can a medium fit me or should I go with the large? Thank you in advance! Michael

Am 5/3 200lbs does a XL fit me

Large or Extra large? I need a little help on a purchase for my boyfriend. He's 6'1", 190 lbs and a muscular built and he's usually wears a Large but I'm having a hard time choosing what size Marmot jacket would fit. What size would you suggest?

Anyone know what the fill weight is?

I like this jacket in black, will you offer it to me at 45% off?
April 14, 2016
Hey Daniel - It looks like only the Red and Blue are available at the 45% off sale price. Feel free to contact me directly to discuss pricing on the Black and I can see what I can do. - Kyle L. - Expert Gearhead

how does this differ from the ama dablem?
December 18, 2015
The Guides down hoody is a bit warmer than the Ama Dablam. Ama Dablam uses higher fill power and a lighter fabric so will be lighter and stuff down smaller than the Guides Down. Guides Down has a heavier face fabric and will hold up better for more rugged use.

Does this jacket have a drawcord or elastic at the waist part?
November 4, 2015
it has an elastic draw cord at the waist
October 9, 2015
Anybody can tell me, for a man 5'10 and 175lb， L or XL is better? many thanks.
October 9, 2015
Hey Rubens, I would recommend you go with a Large in the Marmot Guides Hooded Down Jacket. The XL will definitely be too roomy. Feel free to contact me directly with any more questions on this or other Marmot Jackets or if you are interested in setting up an order.

Is the hood removable?
December 1, 2014
Hi there, No, the hood on this model is fixed and cannot be removed. Please feel free to get in touch with us with any further questions or concerns!

Is this jacket machine-washable?
November 17, 2014
Hey Giovanna V., Yes this jacket is machine washable. But you must strictly abide by the care instructions on the tag. It is also not a bag idea to use some tennis balls to help re plump the down fill while drying the jacket.
October 24, 2014
Does the hoody fit with a helmet?
November 2, 2014
Hey Syllarry, Yeah, the hood is designed to fit over a helmet.

marmot change goose down to duck down this...
marmot change goose down to duck down this year,does the duck down in it have odor?
Mike D Hilverda
January 10, 2014
qwertwin, I have a feeling that a lot of ducks out there are going to be offended by your question. They have played second fiddle to their geese friends long enough, but now they are being accused of a fowl smell. Seriously though, I have worn older Marmot down jacket that have goose down as well as the newer models with duck down and I have not noticed any odor from either jacket, nor have I noticed a difference in warmth.
