MarmotAlassian Featherless Jacket - Men's

Warm, warm, warm.

The Marmot Men's Alassian Featherless Jacket is the kind of coat you can rely on when you want to get outside, but the temperatures are well below freezing. With elastic cuffs and some serious baffles, the Alassian aims to keep you warm no matter the circumstances. The eco-friendly synthetic insulation retains warmth in damp conditions, so you don't need to worry about it turning soggy, wet mess when what was cold, clear morning quickly turns to a blizzardy afternoon.

  • A warm jacket for braving the outdoors during winter
  • Synthetic insulation stays warm even when damp

Warm at -13 degrees

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: large

This jacket truly lives up to expectations! During the recent "Polar Vortex" (16 days in a row below freezing with many below zero) in the Northeast, the jacket was awesome, almost hot. No more than 1 layer needed.

My November Desert Jacket

  • Size Bought: Large

This jacket is so great for cold nights camping spent at Indian Creek. It ialso treated me well in Jackson Hole during 19 degree inverted mornings prior to a skin up the Teton Pass. I love that it is featherless too , which works perfect if it is damp.
The jacket fits pretty tight for an outer layer, so a large works really great for me with other pieces underneath. The fact that this jacket retails under $200 is a huge perk as well.
If you are looking for an eco-friendly, affordable, mega-puffy, look no further.

Incredibly Warm

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

One of, if not the, warmest jacket I have. Super comfortable to wear and has the versatility to pack down small (for it's warmth) yet looks great out on the town. The bonus of fleece lined pockets makes you want to skip the gloves and simply slip your digits into your pocket.

Crazy Cozy

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

I've been putting off this review until I have had plenty of time with this jacket. After wearing it for a couple of weeks, I am in love. I sit very comfortably in a Utah 25 degree day with nothing but a t-shirt underneath. Add a fleece and you're set for winter.

I'm 5'11 and 175 lbs. Wearing a medium and it fits perfect. I have a longer torso so finding an accommodating jacket is tough, but the Allassian fits the bill.

Very Warm Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Looking for quality and warmth? Look no further! The Marmot featherless is one of the warmest jackets I own. Features like seamless baffles make sure no cool air seeps in keeping your body extremely warm. The fit is true to size and looks great paired with a beanie walking around town.

Hey Ethan, I'm about your same size (about 6 ft, 225 lbs) and was wondering about sizing. Would you recommend large or xl? I'm planning on using it as both a top layer but also under a goretex shell for when it's super cold or there's some serious weather. Thanks!

Warmth with some Weight

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Medium

The new featherless campaign from Marmot is great. Instead of adding to the already demanding supply of down they have figured out how to make synthetic act like down. This jacket in particular is really warm and very functional. The only downside is that it runs a little on the heavy side compared to other jackets in its class. If you are looking for a durable, warm jacket for around town or for those cold winter hikes I think that this is a great pick. This does run a bit large. I am 6'2" 175 and typically wear a Large in most other jackets. In this guy I wear a Medium and the sleeve length and fit are great. For a tall skinny guy that can sometimes be a challenge.

It's Warm

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

I just picked up this jacket and was immediately impressed with the warmth of this jacket. It is overstuffed with synthetic insulation that looks, feels, and compresses like down. The benefit of the synthetic insulation used in this jacket is that it won't lose it's heat retention when it gets wet. The fit and look of this jacket are really nice, I got a size large (5'10" 170lbs) and it fits perfectly!

A Lasting Warmth

  • Fit: True to size

When I got this jacket I could just feel how warm it is, and was interested to try this new synthetic insulation. Upon putting on the jacket you are surrounded in your own pocket of warmth that secures you from the elements outside. Than since it is synthetic insulation if it does get wet it will dry faster and also still help retain heat. The baffles are welded instead of sown, meaning that there are not really any cold spots and the wind is not able to penetrate in the slightest. One of my favorite features is that the hand pockets are fleeced lined and it has a high collar that goes up to the chin. The fit on this is right on for Marmot, and I went with a large and the arms are perfect with the body not fitted, but not overly baggy as well. This jacket has quickly become my warmest synthetic jacket and is a great addition to anyone closest, and is perfect for those who like to be exceptionally warm.

For the coldest winter days

Photo is a zoomed in shot of the seamless baffles, which is my favorite feature in the Alassian jacket. This thing is crazy warm. If you haven't given Marmot's Featherless line a try yet, go for it, you'll be happy you did! I suggest using the Alassian on the coldest winter days, doing work in the yard, hitting the slopes, meandering around town, or when you're heading to the office.
