A wintertime luxury.

The walk from your home to the corner café was a pleasant experience when the leaves were dressed in their full fall colors, but now that that the leaves are buried beneath a foot of snow and frost covers every car windshield along the street, you're going to want to wear the Marmot Women's Montreaux Down Coat to keep that walk enjoyable. The Montreaux's hydrophobic down fill retains insulating properties when you encounter light snow flurries—or spill a bottle of water down the front of the jacket—and a DWR finish repels everything from light precipitation to accidental coffee spills. The hood is equipped with a detachable faux-fur ruff for additional warmth during those brisk winter mornings, while a fleece-lined torso does its part to keep your core warm until you get a hot cup of coffee in your belly.

  • Down coat ensures warmth throughout winter's coldest days

  • Water-resistant fabric protects against light snow flurries
  • Plush fleece-lined torso provides a cozy fit and feel
  • Down-filled hood with removable faux-fur ruff

  • Long length provides additional coverage and warmth

Bring it, winter!

Originally purchased a large based on the reviews, but was swimming in it. Exchanged for a medium and found it to be true to size, with enough room to layer underneath. Purchased the Port Royal which is matte IRL and not as shiny as the pictures would indicate. Very warm and cozy!

Very happy with my new coat!

I was worried about the size after reading reviews. It fits perfectly! There is also enough room to layer. I wouldn’t say it runs small. I haven’t gotten a chance to use it yet since it’s summer, but I’m impressed with the quality, fit, and feel. Excellent bang for your buck.

I LOVE this coat!

So warm and soft. The warmth is always evenly distributed too. I bought a large based on other reviews that the product runs small because I would normally wear a medium but of course its way too big. Its okay though, I still love the coat.

I purchased the coat as a late season gift for my wife. She was particularly drawn to the exta length of this model, below the knees, and as recommended in earlier reviews, we purchased a next larger size, a Large which fits fine. Warm and light weight. Marmot and Backcountry are a winning combination.

Excellent

This jacket is great for cold weather. It keeps you warm, dry, has plenty of easy to use pockets and looks great.

    Beautiful Jacket I love it!!!!

    Ahhhhhh, this coat is my go-to for our winter trips to Telluride Colorado. It is perfect for those chilly 25 degree (or below) days and 0 to -12 degree frigid nights. I love the length, color, & shape. Length keeps my knees and thighs toasty warm. Purchased in the Midnight Navy color to go with jeans and brown boots...but i also really love the 'Royal Red' color! Both are so rich; fabulous colors for winter time. I like to wear it open during the day and zipped up at night. Even zipped up fully it still gives me that hour-glass shape even with a bunch of layers on underneath. Some puffy's can have you lookin like a sack of potatoes....not this one! Plus the hood is a major, MAJOR, benefit for those snowy winter nights. I've flipped it up on many occasions. Love, Love, Love this coat!

    Killer jacket!!

      the loft stays in all the right places, I got one for my girl and she loves it. keeps her super warm, would definitely recommend to anyone looking for something warm.

      I moved from So Cal to Colorado and needed a warm jacket. As someone who's been spoiled by sunny weather all her life, this jacket keeps me warm when it's either 10 or 25 degrees out (and snowing). I can wear a thin layer underneath and no problem! I love the long length because it keeps my legs warm as well. I sized up because I usually prefer loose-fit clothing, and I'm glad I did. I think if I had gotten my regular size (SM), it'd be snug in the shoulders and arms and restrict movement.

      Just ok

      This coat is definitely warm, but I have had trouble with the zipper since the day I got it. The zipper is tricky! It takes me a couple tries to get it to zip.

      Beautiful jacket

      Like this jacket, it's warm, with good length and nice red color; but the fit is a little off because of the should distance. It is too narrow so the the parts of the shoulders would sit inside the sleeves. My wife has wide shoulder, medium in jacket or size 6 in suit in usual brands would fit. Unfortunately this one has to go back. Backcountry.com customer service is top notch.

      Warm & Cozy but a little big

      • Size Bought: XL

      A number of reviews said the jacket ran small so I order a size up (XL) according to the size chart I am a Large. Received the jacket yesterday and it’s slightly to big even with a fleece underneath. I am returning the XL for an L, which will hopefully be a better fit. Coat appears to be well made and was definitely warm, can’t wait to get the new one!

      They aren't kidding, it IS small.

      I got in my Marmot Montreux today and was sad to see it is small, especially on the top half. If you are busty at all you will need to size up. Fit perfectly except on the top half. I usually wear 12/14 so I ordered a large. Tight on top. Love the coat...also the zippers could be more sturdy. North Face zippers work better.

      Just in the nick of time!

      I work in an office and try to go out for a walk each day. Living in Vermont, it can be difficult to find the motivation to do so. I received this coat just before temperatures plummeted well below zero. Wearing this coat, not only was I warm getting into my car in sub zero weather (internal thermometer inside the car was below zero), but I was able to continue my lunch time walks. I wasn't sure I was going to keep the fur attached to the hood, but after walking during a snow storm, I understand the benefit of the fur. I was actually able to look up and see where I was walking. I get many complements on this coat. It's a keeper!

      As far as size, I purchased a large because things tend to be tight in the shoulders for me. A medium would have been too small for me.

      This is a warm jacket - make no mistake about it. I ended up buying one for my wife and my daughter. They love it! Its a good looking coat that does exactly what you need it to do - keep you warm! The hood is not a floppy, oversized hood either. The hood is insulated and form fitting - in a good way - which will keep your brain nice and toasty! As the reviews indicate, the chest area runs a bit on the snug size. Something more endowed women should consider when contemplating purchasing this coat.

      Lovely but runs really small

      Comfy and warm but runs at least a size smaller. I normally wear medium, but couldn't even close it. Ordered both Large and XL to try both with a sweater.

      Gift to my wife

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      • Size Bought: Large

      My wife tried this on when it first arrived, on a cold day. Her first comment was "I'm warming up already." I followed the many recommendations to order a size up. She was very happy with the size. She asked what size it was and said she has the room to move comfortably , and layer if she wishes. She has a warm winter coat however, it is only waist high and the Marmot Montreaux Down Coat hit's her knees and as such is better for the colder days. I hit a home run with this purchase. I will update this review as she uses it.

      I've finally worn this baby in -8° weather and I must say, it did the job.
      But I do wish it was a little longer.

      I just received my jacket Today.
      I live in california so a jacket like this may seem unnecessary but I get cold and I am planning to visit my friend in Colorado in the near future (and Asia next year).
      I was in between sizes so I decided to go with a Medium.
      Apart from this jacket looking great and well made (I like the design much better than Patagonia Down with Parka as that one just fits like a long tube), this company’s dedication to customer satisfaction blew me away.

      Each person I spoke to made sure I was getting exactly what I needed. What a great company!
      I will definitely shop with them again.
      Thank You!
