This jacket is awesome! My Marmot Ama Dablam is worn out, so I needed a warm winter coat that would hold up in rain, snow and cold temps. I looked at a TON of down and synthetic coats, but decided I wanted down for the warmth. Then I found the Cold Forge Hoody, with its water resistant shell and down/synthetic blend. I was skeptical when I ordered it, and even more skeptical when I got it because it looks wimpy. I assure you, it is not! We got hit with a north Idaho blizzard with temps below zero and tons of snow the day after I got it. I run cold, but this coat kept me comfortable standing outside in 10 degrees (with a sweatshirt on). The fit is awesome, trim and flattering with room to layer under or over it, the hood is nice and deep and cinches down, and the SLEEVES!! The sleeves are what tall girls dream of. Super long, even reaching overhead with my crazy long arms. The pockets have fleece on the front liner but not the back, so they are cozy-ish but do let some cold leak in. I've worn this coat for 3 days and love it but can't speak for its longevity. At 6' tall, 155 lbs the large is perfect on me. (I also wear a large in Patagonia jackets).

After months of ordering and returning jackets that didn't fit right, once again, Marmot has saved the day. Arcteryx and Patagonia jackets both gave me problems with fit, either arms too short or bodies too wide. I gave up, and then happened upon this jacket. It fits perfectly, with a slim body and LONG sleeves. I'm 6' tall, 155 lbs so mail order can be hard, but time and again Marmot comes through with great fit, great value and quality gear. This jacket is perfect for cool weather hiking and was water resistant in a light rain this morning. I bought this to replace an arcteryx atom lt hoody that was just a little too small for me and am thrilled with it. It is just a tad warmer and feels like it would work up into the high 60's and probably down into the 20's or less with a shell over it and the right layers under it.

I didn't think a jacket could be too technical for me, but this one is. Really nice fleece, very light but warm and cool texture. Sleeves were nice and long enough for me, but I felt the body was weirdly long too, unusual with my height. The thing I really didn't like was how tight the hood is. Great for people who wear it under a helmet, but odd looking and insufficient hair coverage for around town in a drizzle. I like multifunctional jackets,
so I returned it.
