Marmot Ama Dablam Down Jacket - Women's
MarmotAma Dablam Down Jacket - Women's

Puffy warmth without the puffy.

The Marmot Women’s Ama Dablam Down Jacket delivers the toasty-warm goodness of 800-fill power goose down without all the puffed-up volume. Its hexagonal quilting evenly distributes the down and keeps your figure streamlined for easier mobility. Speaking of mobility, this non-puffy has Marmot's Angel Wing Movement for unhindered arm motion, imperative when reaching that crux move or taking in slack ASAP. The hood is down-filled, too, so your head stays nice and warm. Elastic at cuffs and hem further seal out the cold, and a wind flap in front add a nice barrier. Stuff this versatile jacket in its own stuff sack to make anytime, anywhere warmth a (literal) cinch.

Best jacket I've ever owned.

This jacket fits perfectly, is very warm and sturdy, and the color is fantastic! (I got the darker blue).

great coat

I ordered this coat as a ski layer to go under a shell and it was warm warm warm! I ended up returning it only because I found the orange color to be a little shiny for my taste, but in terms of performance it was a great coat.

    I need my coat I'm freezing like crazy ...in PA,,

    This jacket is EVERYTHING

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    seriously, this jacket is perfect for every weather condition. We live at 9000' in the Rockies so we need jackets for every kind of weather. This one covers the bases. Light enough for fall and spring and really warm in the dead of winter. Easy to pack because it's so small. I wear this almost daily from September-April!

    best purchase!

    I hike dogs three days a week, all year round. And this jacket has kept me wicked warm without being too heavy! It lost a couple feathers, but it hasn't been anything alarming, I assume that's normal to down jackets. Lots of pockets, fits well to form, and the hood is amazing. I HIGHLY recommend this product!

    Great Jacket, runs a little small

    I am so happy with this jacket. It is the perfect winter jacket, nice and warm, long enough to not get the annoying cold air gap and between jacket and pants and just great quality. The hood fits underneath my ski helmet for those really cold days. It does run a little on the small side, i ended up with the large instead of my normal medium because the medium was too tight at the hips causing it to ride up some.

    So far, so great.

    Love the style, the green color and fit. Concerned about other comments re: down...hmmm will wait and see.

    I am petite but curvy. The medium fit well and did not swallow me up while still zipping past my size 10 hips.

    Great Parka

    Lightweight, great value.

    Love it!!

      My favorite jacket ever!!

      Warm, cute, functional

      This jacket is one of my "go-to" items for the winter. I wear the Ama Dablam all winter - from late fall to early spring. The weight is perfect for a variety of weather changes. I wear it as my outer jacket in shoulder seasons, as a midlayer on super cold, wet days and just around town all the time. I love the honeycomb baffles as well, I get compliments all the time! In response to reviews that the feathers come out, I haven't experienced that at all. Because this is an 800 fill down, it is higher quality down and contains less "feathers" than a 600 fill, it will have more of the under feather down. Marmot does extensive down testing and review, so this 800 fill is at least that much, likely a bit higher. I've washed this jacket a handful of times and it perks the down right back up.

      Sending it back

      After reading the reviews about this jacket loosing feathers and being poor quality, I still decided to give it a shot. But the reviews were totally right. I haven't even wear it and it has already lost I don't know how many feathers and the over all quality isn't great. I think I'm going to stick to Patagonia instead.

      Poor Quality and Worse Warranty

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This is my third Ama Dablam jacket, not because I like them so much, but due to the fact that I have to order a new one every season. They don't even last a year. As a mountain guide I use my jackets not only for mountaineering but for everyday use. The seems come apart first, then the material wears and holes form and the feathers release, now making 800 fill to a 500 fill. The zipper went quickly on this last jacket. I then asked the warranty department if they could replace the zipper and send back the jacket, due to the fact that it is expensive and I would patch the holes myself. They said they needed to wash the jacket in order to replace the zipper, which they weren't able to due because of fear for loosing more feathers. So the warranty department offered me a 50% discount on a new jacket. Really?! I will not recommend this jacket nor this brand to any of my clientele mostly because they could not replace a poorly made product.

      I have two of them...

      • Fit: True to size

      ...I liked the first one so much I got a second in a different color. Inclusion of a two-way zipper gets Marmot many extra points. This down jacket is ultra-light, stashes easily, and yet is very warm.

      I've been wearing both of mine for over two years. No problems whatsoever.

      XS is still too big

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: XS

      1) The XS fits too large.
      2) The red colour is misleading... it's much duller in reality.

      lifetime warranty ?

      I've had this jacket for 5 years now and I love it but I'm wondering when the seams on the arms look like they're really worn out even though this is not an everyday jacket for me ...and it keeps losing more and more and more feathers when does the lifetime warrantu mean something ... Do I ask for a new one ????? Geeez Marmot is supposed to be TOP quality ... I'm mad because I like the jacket but it's life expectancy ...well, that's a different story

      Great jacket

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

      Love the bright color (gem blue) and the quilting pattern on this jacket. As with all outwear, I am unfortunately between a M and L. The sleeves were a bit too short on the M and the shoulders a little tights, but the body fit well. The L the arms and shoulders are perfect but its a bit big otherwise. Thankfully the pattern helps minimize the boxy look. Super warm and functional. No problems yet with feather shedding.

      Super Steal

      • Fit: True to size

      I snagged this jacket on sale, and could not be happier! This is a great mid-weight down jacket, and the best part is the fit is very flattering. The hexagon fill pattern and the cut of this jacket keeps you from looking like you are wearing a puffy sack. I'm 5'4 115 and purchased the S. There is plenty of room to layer underneath and still look flattering. I also love the extra pockets inside and on the arm of the jacket. I find that I can never have enough pockets, so it's always nice to have more than two available. I have not had any issues with excessive feather shedding so far but will update once it has seen more use.

      is the hood removable?

      Hello Yale,

      No, unfortunately not. It is fixed on this model!

      It is not. Let me know if you'd like help finding a jacket that will suit your specific needs! I can be reached at llabar@backcountry.com or 801-736-6399.

      Unanswered Question

      I just purchased myself an Ama Dablam. I love the fit and warmth, but there are several feathers coming out. Should I keep it, or is that just a sign of what's to come for the jacket?

      Dope Jacket

        The jacket is super awesome. Im only returning it because it was too big. Im 5'9" and 140lbs and bought the Med. Its too roomy, too boxy and looks like a guys jacket on me because its too big. Very nice jacket however, just a sizing issue.
