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.

Nice quality, but not warm enough.

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I brought this product and just returned it. I live in Boston, it is too light for me to fight with the winter. Overall, it is a nice-built down jacket. If you living in the near areas, go look for a heavier jacket, this one is too light for you.

Super puffy jacket

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

I just moved to the mountains of Colorado from Louisiana so I recently found myself in need of a good basic jacket. I found this one at a great price point after searching in vain for a jacket in the ladies dept (I'm a chunky gal, not a common thing in these parts, and I don't like frou frou colors). This jacket is very warm, so far (I'm a sissy when it gets remotely chilly) and it's roomy enough at an XL to wear a sweater underneath. The fleece lined hand pockets are great, in addition to the extra pockets on the front and inside. The ripstop is hardly noticible on the exterior. It's super soft and very breathable. I like how it has a water resistant treatment and extra synthetic fill on exposed areas so it should hold up once the weather gets colder. I'm very happy with the purchase especially at less than 200 bucks. It seems very well made. The stitching is tight and even, no down poking through. I don't plan on doing a lot of mountain stuff because I work and go to school full time. I don't doubt that it'll hold up for more than a couple of seasons. I ordered this along with some Sorel boots when the snow started, and chose next day air. Backcountry does not play when it comes to shipping! It was at my house the next day! We'll see how she holds up when it gets really cold. I'll update if any issues arise.

The best puffy jacket

    Design flaw

    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.

    Warm, Dry, and Comfortable!

    Love the fit and breathable capabilities, keeps me warm on the chill slopes and i don't even put a hard-shell over it. pockets keep your hands nice and toasty. combined with some good base layers i'm never cold with this on!

    Warm and Cozy

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

    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.
