Marmot Sling Shot Down Jacket - Women's

Shrug off cold and wet ski days.

Cold and shivery lift rides can turn an otherwise beautiful ski day into what feels like a fight for survival. The Marmot Women's Sling Shot Down Jacket uses 700-fill down insulation to keep you warm, while the MemBrain two-layer shell keeps you and the down fill dry once the snow starts to fall.

Love it/ rough zipper

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

I love the jacket. Fits well, perfect for skiing but returning because the zipper is defective or just not quality. The zipper is important and it is difficult to zip. Sad to have to return. Not willing to try another.

PERFECTION

Love Love this jacket. I've spent the last year hiking and camping from Big Bend in the winter to the Smokies and I am so thankful I chose this down jacket. It's incredibly warm, extremely comfortable, and keeps you dry during misty dewy hikes. I would definitely buy it again!

Warm and stylish

Marmot is always a favorite. I love the color and warmth of this coat. It feels good and keeps me toasting warm on the cold days on the hill. I always get lot of compliments when I wear this coat. Highly suggest it.

LOVE the slingshot jacket

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

I was in the market for a super warm, durable, puffy to wear skiing on days when the temps are below freezing to single digits. I was uncertain about the size but after reading all the reviews decided a Medium would be the best fit and I was right. I am 5'5" and 130 lbs. I wanted to leave room for more layers underneath, like another down vest or jacket, which I did utilize this past weekend in an all-day skiing in a blizzard extravaganza, and I was toasty. With temps that low I am not worried about how waterproof the jacket is, as the snow is dry. This jacket is perfect for what I wanted it for and I would recommend trying a size up (I am typically a small(, especially if you want maximum warmth by being able to add layers underneath.

Fit is NO BUENO

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

I was on a hunt for the warmest jacket in all the land and this jacket fit so poorly that I didn't even attempt to keep it on longer than an initial try on. I am petite at 5' 2" and this jacket was still a crop top with any type of arm movement; not a good or comfortable look in Utah winters. The fit is very boxy and it was just so short in the torso and I knew it wouldn't hold in any heat. This bad boy was returned!

In Many Ways a Great Jacket

    The jacket is very warm, lightweight so you don't feel you're wearing a heavy jacket. But I am returning it. There were two problems that I just can't reconcile in my mind. The first is the color which is considerably different than the color shown on the website. It's more of an army green with a teal overtone. The second problem is the front zipper which seems to take a lot of work to zip up. I wouldn't want to be on a ski slope and have to open the jacket for some reason and then have trouble closing it again.

    Awesome ski jacket!!!

    I bought this jacket in preparation for our ski trip in Park City. I love the color and the fact that wearing just a baselayer & this jacket kept me super warm skiing the entire trip. (I'm hypothyroid so I'm sensitive to the cold). I can't be happier with this purchase!!!

    Its Warm Out

    Put it on and enjoy the winter staying warm. Recommended that everyone should buy one

    Cold midwest

    • Size Bought: large

    I bought this coat to replace my Burton. This is a great coat and very warm, sometimes too warm. The hood is great and very useable. The wrist cuffs are a super bonus. Overall, its been awesome and I like that it covers my backside. ;) It is also nice if you are bigger chested. It does not smash like other coats seem to do. My vote is buy it!

    Definitely not warm as described!

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

    I just received this item. Feel very disappointed. It is definitely not as warm as it described in the TECH and in the most reviews. For sure it cannot be used for skiing, maybe it is for spring and fall.

    I had an old version of the same jacket (but lost, I still miss it very much), so I have experience of the jacket. Plus the most positive online reviews, I had put the order with confidence. So bad I did it. I have to return it even I have to pay for the return cost.

    There is a possibility the one I got is a defect product. But I cannot be convinced now.

    Is the "steel/black" a NAVY BLUE color? Also, is the 700 down GOOSE DOWN? And, lastly, is the Women's "Mountain Down" jacket warmer than this one? What is the temperature-rating on both jackets? My email is: chickenrose@kdis.net. Hope to hear from you soon. Rosalie Tratnik

    Hey Rosalie,



    The steel/black color is dark navy. The 700 fill down is goose. The Mountain Down is similar in warmth, but gives you more coverage as it is 1.5" longer in length. None of the products on our website are temperature rated, however both of these jackets are meant for cold winter use. With proper layering you could wear these to temps around 0.

    Super warm and cozy

    The Slingshot jacket is perfect for those cold winter mornings! I love the different colors on the shoulder and body of the jacket, plus the pockets are big and cozy, perfect for warming up your cold hands. I got a ton of compliments on this jacket while wearing it.

    Mont Blanc

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

    I bought the marmot slingshot down jacket to go up Mont Blanc. I really like the blue colouring (there used to be a turquoise one that I wanted, but I guess it sold out) and I found the fit to be very flattering. When I wore it on an outing to Mer de Glace however, I found the jacket did not keep me as warm as I’d hoped in the evening. The fleece cuffs are very comfortable and the hood fit very well (I did not try it with a helmet though). Sometimes I found the zippers hard to handle i.e. they wouldn’t close easily. Good fabric - sturdy.

    Unanswered Question

    Is this jacket packable?

    Next to the North Pole

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

    Wore this jacket to Svalbard ( 78 degrees 13 minutes North) to see the total solar eclipse. Along the way, ice caving, dog mushing, walking. Jacket kept me toasty warm in sub-zero temps. Loved the fleece cuffs, great hood adjustments, light but sturdy fabric. Only complaint was that the zippers (front and pocket) were sometimes a little balky and hard to get going. Color is a tad eye-popping, but I wasn't about to get lost in a snow drift! Thanks, Backcountry gear heads, for your advice and help!

    Did you ever break a sweat doing your activities? If so do you feel the jacket did a good job at not keeping the humidity in?

    Love it! It's Perfect!

    Nicest jacket i have ever had! LOVE IT!!! The inside fabric is so soft, i feel warm inside. Color is attractive and a head turner. A lot of zippers. The size fits me well and I do not feel suffocated. I definitely would recommend it.

    LOVE THIS JACKET

    I seem to always be cold out on the hill and this jacket is awesome!! When its a bit warmer I wear less layers and have never overheated and when its blustery and cold its warm as can be with a few extra thin layers. Wish the hood was a tad larger to fit over my helmet more but other than that LOVE IT!!

    I agree Mar!

    What is the center back length of a medium?

    28 inches

    Marmot Sling Shot Down Jacket in Nunavut

    Kiyuk Lake, Nunavut. Where the average temps in early March are -40 C and can drop to -60C at night with wind chill. WIth a few layers underneath the Sling Shot Down jacket kept me comfy in uncomfortable winter conditions.



    This jacket is tough as well. I put it through 35 days of winter snowshoeing work in Northern Quebec where we were climbing up and down steep mountain faces and our clothing was the difference between life and death in that terrain.



    The fit works well for me. I'm 5'5" and 135 pounds and wear a medium. In those conditions, I normally wore a light jacket, down vest, and wool sweater underneath and had no issues with feeling tight or overstuffed.
