Marmot Montreal Down Coat - Women's

Stay completely warm while you walk across town in frigid temperatures, and don't worry if a few snow flurries start to fall.

Those frigid walks into town and annoyingly cold drives to work aren't a problem for you anymore thanks to the Marmot Women's Montreal Down Coat. The 700-fill down insulation works its heat magic while making sure the jacket feels light as a feather on your torso, and Marmot's proprietary Down Defender treatment resists water so the down won't lose it's warmth due to just a few snow flurries. The polyester shell has a DWR coating that also resists water. A plush lining slides over your work attire like a glove, and it feels so soft against your skin that you'll wish you could work in this coat all day.

The Montreal's insulated hood keeps your head nice and toasty so you don't have to squish your hair down with a beanie, and you can remove both the hood and its faux fur ruff when you don't need them. Marmot lined the internal cuffs with micro fleece, and the front pockets also have micro fleece for extra hand coziness. The internal zippered pocket stores small items like lip balm while the drop pocket holds all your bigger items like your gloves, beanie, or phone.

Comfortable warm coat but some flaws

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

I am 130 lbs, 5'7 and going off of other reviews I ordered a large because several people said it ran small. I am usually a medium. The large was a bit too large but the sleeves are way too short so going down a size likely wouldn't work. In addition, I ordered the steel onyx which online looks like a steel blue color. Upon arrival I discovered it is really a dark grey.

Beautiful Coat

Really hoping it would fit me. I wear a size 16-18. XXL is too small. I'm really sad. It's beautiful and soft and cozy. It doesn't come larger, which is too bad.

Super cozy

Extremely cozy. My only complaint is that the arms could be a little longer. As someone who likes to pull the sleeves over my hands when it is cold out, it is hard to do that with this jacket. Other than that, I wore this thing into spring even though it was unnecessary-- just loved wearing it so much!!

Love it!

  • Fit: Runs small

I recommend getting a size up, fits a bit small specially around the chest area.

Thank you for the sizing info, Barbara!

I was looking for a coat that would keep me warm on the coldest days in North Idaho but not leave me looking like I'm walking around in a sleeping bag. I ordered it in steel onyx. It's gorgeous. There are many luscious details others have raved about, but I have to say the feel of the pockets put this coat over the top in my book. It's like being wrapped in a cloud. I'm 5'8", 135 lbs, 36 in the chest, and the proportions were perfect for me in M. I don't buy clothes with any expectation of compliments, but this one attracts them wherever I go.

I'm in love!

I simply love this down jacket! It is exactly what I was looking for. The length is perfect, the amount of fluff is perfect and my favorite part is how soft it feels. It has this super soft liner, but just in general it is soft. Its so comfortable, I want to sleep in it! It could be my new sleeping bag. Oh and it keeps me really warm and toasty too.
It fits great too. I'm 5'5" and weight 125 and order the small and I love the way it fits.

Amazing Coat

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

I bought this coat after spending way too many years with a mediocre coat. It's really soft, light-weight and quite flattering. The hood is snug enough that it actually stays on, even when it's windy.

One thing to note: I'm pretty petite (5'3'') and this coat comes down midway on my thighs so if you're taller and are looking for a long coat, this may not be the coat for you. Otherwise the fit is true-to-size.

Living in New England, this is definitely the perfect winter weather coat!

This coat saved me in -30 degrees Alaska

I needed a really warm coat for a trip to Fairbanks last week. I ordered a different coat from Backcountry but it was too small. In despair, I checked the Backcountry website again and found this coat but by then it was Thursday night and we were leaving early Saturday morning. I chatted with the Backcountry representative and she was able to air mail me this coat to arrive on Friday without charge! Wow, this is amazing customer service!
I ordered the coat in an XXL. I have a broad back and always have trouble with fit around the middle. This size worked. The coat has a very soft and inviting lining, and a puffy 700 down fill. It hung about 5 inches above my knee. It was super warm and slipped very easily over my mid layer jacket and heavy polar fleece sweater. The pockets are in the right place for warming your hands. I zipped the fur off the hood because it reduced my visibility. Without the fur, the hood was perfect - I usually forgot I even had it up. I watched the Iditarod, rode snowmobiles, went ice fishing and watched the aurora borealis with this coat and I stayed warm. If I had not had this coat, I think the Alaska trip would have not been fun. Thank you Backcountry!

This is great to hear - I am thinking of going back to AK in 2018 on an Iditarod finish tour
Isn't the area stunning

Marmot Montreal Down Coat

Love this coat! I underestimated the "fits slightly small" suggestion, so I had to try a couple of sizes ... it really IS snug .. but, then again, I am an old-fashioned (and old) person and don't like things "spray on"! Other than that ... this is a DEVINE coat!

Highly recommend this jacket!

It kept me really warm in the ski resort in Japan, where the weather was down to minus 5 to 7 degrees C. I could just wear 1 layer beneath the jacket and didn't feel cold. It fits well, doesn't look bulky and is very light. I wear a medium and is true to size, with room enough to layer on.

At long last!

First, I ordered three different coats (in two orders) from backcountry, and entirely through my own mistake one was shipped to the wrong address. I'd been getting help with info about the third of these from a gearhead named Zachary C. who provided the best possible customer service. I am very happy with the product selection, pricing, and service from backcountry and recommend them with enthusiasm to anyone looking for outdoor wear.
Now on to the keeper coat, the Marmot Montreal: I have been searching since last fall for a lightweight, mid thigh length warm coat and this one fits the bill (after trying and rejecting at least 5 others, from Michael Kors to The North Face). The Marmot is PERFECT! COZY with great soft inner sleeve and super fine fleece lining around the collar and upper back. I got the navy and it is a very nice shade, some color but subtle. It does run a bit small, as some others have noted. I am 5'2.5 and 110 lbs and with a regular weight sweater the S is trim fitting. Then again I was looking for something trim so keep the wind from whipping up the bottom (which some of the more princess shaped/nipped waist coats allow).

Very disappointed

It was finally time to buy myself a warm winter coat. I was a little shocked by the prices out there but was happy to see the sale on this one. It's a beautiful coat and the description of its features were what I wanted. I read many reviews and thought it would be perfect. So many said it ran small, I ordered the large so I could layer underneath. Putting it on I knew there would be no layering. Way too snug in the chest and I am small breasted. Before I returned it I wanted to test the warmth of it to decide if I should order the XL. I live in Maine and I walk down to the bus stop every afternoon (6 min or so) and wait about 10 min for the bus to arrive. There was little wind and the coat kept my torso warm. However, the sleeves which barely reached my wrists were not as warm. The lower part of the coat was NOT WARM AT ALL. If it had been windy the sleeves would not have been warm. I wanted to post this review so other women in northern climates would be aware of my results.

Great jacket

    Bought this for a friend and she says loves it. Keeps her super warm and the quality of this jacket is in great shape.

    Unanswered Question

    What is the material inside the pockets? Also, does this coat have the wrist protection with thumb holes?

    I bought this coat while enduring a particularly dry and frigid Utah winter... a bit of a shock to my Pacific Northwestern bones. After a week of just not quite getting warm enough, I invested in this coat... mainly because it came in my size. I purchased the Onyx version and my first impression was that the color was dead on. It's a cool gray without drifting into lavender territory and the furry color is a great contrast. The down fill is particularly cozy, but what I love is how soft the lining is, without sticking to whatever I'm wearing underneath. Is there anything more embarrassing than trying to take your coat off and turning it inside out 4 different ways while halfway pulling off your underclothes? I mean, I guess there is... but it's just not a problem with this coat. The pockets are at the perfect level, which is great for a thigh-length jacket, and I especially appreciate the inside tech pocket. I can thread my earbuds (yes, I still use the cord), up the collar and keep my phone tucked safely inside. No iphonesicle, no strangling, tangly cords and I stay snug as a bug. Love this one.

    I love this coat!

    I ordered a medium and it fits perfectly. It's very comfortable. I love the soft lining in the pockets.
    My number one concern was finding something that would keep me warm since we just moved from sunny California to snowy Utah and this coat does the job! It has kept me comfortable in -15 degree weather.

    Love it!

    This coat is so warm. While it is a little fuller than others, I do not at all feel like the stay puff marshmallow man! I sized up to have extra room for layers, since I'm always cold. The Montreal has been perfect. And the customer service was AMAZING! Brooklynn spent so much time helping me find the perfect coat for me. She was so helpful and patient with my many questions. Thank you!!!!

    Warm and comfy
