Rachel D.wrote a review of Marmot Montreaux Down Coat - Women's on November 30, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs small
I live in rural Iowa and cannot stand cold, so a warm winter coat is a must. It was time to replace a 6+ year old LL Bean parka and this hit all the boxes-knee length, high down fill, fleece lined, etc.
Read the reviews on sizing and ordered both an XS and S. Normally an XS would only be a little big on my petite 5’4” frame, but this time it fits VERY well if not a little snug. The S was better in the shoulders and chest but far too big everywhere else. So it does run small as others have noted.
I’ve worn it once so far on a fairly cold afternoon and was almost too warm. Excited to put it to the test during a winter storm this weekend!
Overall very happy with the purchase, the only reason for the 4 starts is the sizing-there was a pretty substantial difference between the XS and S, more than usual for just the next size up. Otherwise perfect. I’ll update this review if there are any snags, but I don’t expect that to happen!
