Guiding your way through extreme cold with wonderful warmth.

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.

Design flaw

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

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.

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.

not what i expected

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 ....

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!

    Warm, nice features, and fits well. 40 chest and medium fits well, with room to sweater underneath.

    Thanks for the review Rick!

    Love this jacket

      Great fit. Flexible. The pockets are great to keep your hands warm. Length is good. Lighter then expected.

      Am 5/3 200lbs does a XL fit me

      most likely, yes

      Warm! Sooooooo very warm!!

      Wow, this jacket is very very warm. I had one of the gearheads help me pick between this and the more expensive Arc'teryx and I am very happy! You can throw this thing on with just a teeshirt and you're good to go. I was told it is rated for about 0-10 degree and I believe it. It is slightly more puffy than I wanted it but hey, I'll take warmth vs style any day. I am 6'0" at 230lbs and I purchased the XL. Very nice fit.

      Really Warm Jacket!

      This is my favorite all purpose winter jacket I have ever owned.
      It is incredibly comfortable and warm. Rarely leave the house without it when it gets below freezing. Inside of pockets are nicely lined and can really warm your hands up quick. Tough to get cold in this jacket!

      Hem Adjustment

        I just had a customer call in concerned that his jacket was defective. The hem adjustment tab seemed to be sew in the inside of the jacket and not accessible to use. He then realized it is accessible from the pocket to make the appropriate adjustments.
        So just a heads up :)

        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?

        This is a killer jacket. Very, very warm and compressible. Use this as a belay jacket for winter days at the crag and for winter hiking/backpacking. An essential piece of gear.

        Around Town/Base Camp Jacket

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: Runs large
        • Size Bought: Medium

        This is a big, puffy, and very warm jacket. Gives you that classic Michelin Man look, so hopefully you're into that. It's a great winter jacket for around town. You can throw it on over a t-shirt and be plenty warm in pretty much any temperature, especially if you throw the hood up.

        It stuffs into an interior lapel pocket and packs down to about the size of a Nalgene, but it takes some doing to get it in there and get it zipped.

        I'd say this is a bit too bulky and definitely too warm for general purpose ski touring/light mountaineering. I never really found an excuse to wear this day touring around the Wasatch this winter other than booting up at the car on cold mornings. However, it's a great piece to have along if you're doing an overnight or a big objective and you've got a bigger pack with some room to spare.

        It's sized quite generously. I selected "Runs Large" but I think the sizing is pretty much spot on for a jacket like this, as you generally throw on something like this on top of all your other layers. I wear a slim fitting shell in size medium, and this jacket in size medium fits over it with room to spare. The hood is sized large enough to fit over a mountaineering/skimo helmet, but it would be a tight fit with some bulkier ski helmets. I did a winter ski ascent of Mt. Whitney a few weeks ago, and I was really glad to have this along hanging out at camp and on the summit.

        Jacket does its job. Warm through the coldest weather in New England . However I wish the web site made it clear that the hood is NON detachable. I hate the hood

        My Favorite Jacket

        Got a medium and it has a nice, snug, perfect fit. I'm 5'11" 175lbs. It has a thicker and heavier, old school look and feel. Hood is really warm and looks great on or off. I wear it everywhere in the winter- on the mountain and to the office. Very warm. Very durable.

        Great for the office and the lake.

        About me: M/27/CO 5'11 at 180lbs. The large fit's great! Sleeves are adequate and the overall fit is comfortable and not restricting. You can't throw the hood up if you have the front zipped up to your chin, but I've quickly gotten used to that. It drapes slightly over the buttox so coverage is great.

        Initially I wanted to use this as a city/commute jacket since my pooch gnawed through the parka that I normally wore. Shortly after wearing a couple of times, I thought I should take it ice fishing, as my insulated hard shell that I normally take is far too bulky and large.

        The warmth of this jacket blew me away! It was about 20*, blowing snow, and no sun. I was wearing thermal underwear, a fleece, and the Marmot and was surprisingly comfortable. It was confusing at times because my line would be freezing up, but it honestly, didn't feel like it was that cold.

        Overall, I love the fact that the material is not shiny and seems very durable. With some of these down jackets, the material feels garbage-bag like, but not this Marmot.

        I'll probably be looking to get an additional jacket without the hood once spring/summer/fall camping season arrives.

        Would I take it on a tree run on my next ski trip? Probably not. But for a jacket that looks good in the city and keeps you warm on the lake, I highly recommend it!
