When you reach basecamp or when you're waiting in line to get into a concert, whip out the Marmot Men’s Ama Dablam Down Jacket. The high-lofting, 800-fill goose down will keep you warm and toasty when you throw it on. The ultra-fine down is highly compressible, too, so when you're not using it, you can pack it into its own interior pocket for easy stowing. The down-proof polyester ripstop face fabric will work for mild conditions or you can use it as a toasty layer under a shell for more extreme conditions; a DWR coating means that the Ana Dablam can handle occasional damp weather. The elastic draw cord hem will help in that serious weather for quick and easy adjustments.

At basecamp, you can flip up the attached, adjustable down-filled hood for a little warmth as you cook. Then, store a number of cooking items in the many pockets, like the vertical front chest pocket or the zippered handwarmer pockets. And if you are getting serious in the camp kitchen, Marmot's Angel-Wing Movement allows for a full range of motion so the jacket doesn't ride up. When you serve up your tasty morsels, you can push down your sleeves and synch the hook and loop elastic cuffs down for added protection. When you get home from the woods, keep using the jacket in the city, because it has a fresh about-town look to it.

Marmot Ama Dablam Jacket Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

Pros:
Warm - I have worn it in -10F with just a button down shirt underneath (and a tie), and it's warm enough for walking 10 min outside to work. Although I do buy insulated ties, so...
Fit - I am 5'10 180lbs with a +5 ape index, and this coat fits my arms in a Medium. So if you have long arms, this works. Thankfully.
Color - Mine is bright green. It's so bright I can see myself comng from down the street.
Fill - good fill, takes a bit of time to puff out fully, but then packs down well into the internal pocket to about half the size of a football. Also compresses well under a shell.
Material - the outer material is thin, but the DWR definitely works (at least for now) and they say it's ripstop. I cant really comment on abrasion, but I will not be climbing in this, that's for sure.
Pockets - are fleece lined and pretty big. Nice for warming hands
Cons
The material is kind of see through, so it looks like you have little stains all over but it is the darker feathers showing through.
The hood is a bit big for a normal size head. Some dreads or perhaps a nice fro would work well.

This seemed insubstantial to me coming out of the box, but I'm growing fonder of this every time I use it. Very light for its warmth and it has some nice features, like the adjustable cuffs and the double adjustments on the hood. I haven't really put this through its paces yet, but I was comfortable yesterday in 10 degrees (just 20 minutes) and just a shirt underneath. Hit some wintery mix last week (what in upstate NY used to be called April showers) and, at least for five blocks to the office, the shell did very well at repelling water (no, it's not advertised to be waterproof and I reckon it really is not -- but it did seem respectable for a treatment). My lack of mountain experience with this jacket limits me to 4 stars, but at the sale price on last year's model, I think this was a bargain.

Picked this up a few weeks back, had it down to near 0F. Lots of dog walks in 10F, light wind and heavy snow. Layers well over an R1 fleece, haven't experienced any cold spots.
I'm very pleased with the Ama Dablam due to its compressibility, warmth in temps well below freezing, comfortable fit that minimizes dead space/heat loss.
And the hood.. one adjustment the first day I got it and none since. It stays completely out of my field of vision, making it a go-to for snowboarding or goating around in the mountains.
Size large fits me perfectly at 6'1", 210lbs. Bought this to replace a more bulky Arcteryx Dually Belay Jacket and so far it is a perfect layer that's done everything I could ask for. It fits easily into my not-so-large touring pack, so it's officially one of my go-to layers. A+

prop60021 at Backcountry.com on 12/09/2013

This jacket fills a nice niche between my lighter Patagonia down hoody, and my overstuffed OR Maestro. I dig the warmth and light weight of the jacket. I can wear it comfortably to about 25 deg. F with just a t-shirt underneath. My biggest complaint is that there are no internal pockets to keep things warm on the inside of the coat (water bottle, climbing skins, etc.). I am 6'1" and about 200 lbs and the large fits me really nicely. If I were planning on using this as a belay parka I would need the XL. I bought this as more of a stand-alone jacket, though, and the large fits great

TonyG at Backcountry.com on 01/28/2014

I have had this jacket for over a year now and it has not failed me yet. It kills the wind, keeps you warm, and does everything a down parka should. If you are moving in this jacket (walking, hiking, climbing etc) you will be warm. I've used it under shells and it condenses nicely! All and all I would say that the 800-fill does exactly what was intended. my only complaint is that it is not waterproof at all and the outer material feels very thin and weak. Although I say that it has not ripped or even shown signs of weakening. So... five stars! get you one

morp129309 at Backcountry.com on 11/13/2013

Not exorbitantly expensive, with few features (in my case, a good thing), and above average durability makes this puffy a really excellent go to for chilly trail maintenance in Vermont winters, backpacking in Alaskan's midnight sun, or time around the campfire at 11,000 feet on the Colorado Trail. It stuffs down nicely. Only major complaint is the bulky fit. Despite synching in all applicable places, it still feels bulky and, if you don't synch all the way, you'll get some drafts coming up the waist.
All in all, I'd buy it again. Had it for 2 years now; shows no signs of relenting.

Got this off SAC earlier this year and it's AWESOME. Super lightweight and compressible while ridiculously toasty even in windy conditions. My favorite part is definitely the hand-warmer pockets. No matter how cold it is they always seem to stay warm. I did not believe it when I bought it, but I just tested it while writing this review. The entire jacket does fit in the handwarmer pocket, making it perfect for throwing it in your ski pack while you're out all day. This is one hell of a jacket

Gadi at Backcountry.com on 12/09/2013

Almost Perfect

Would have given it four and a half stars, if possible.

Wanted a down jacket with hood to wear around camp with or without a shell over it. This jacket is wonderfully warm, packs down to a very small space, and I especially like the Napoleon pocket for my phone and/or glasses.

"Almost" perfect because the zipper only has a single pull tab and I'd prefer to have just elastic for the ends of the sleeves rather than the elastic/velcro combination.
cabminer at Campmor on 10/10/2013

This thing is spectacular. I bought it for winters in KS (it gets damn cold here) riding in CO and for a June rainier climb. It has been incredibly warm during a few especially cold and windy days in KS winter. It lacks down tiny and is shockingly light. I haven't had any feathers come out yet and for how light it is seems at least somewhat rip resistant.

derp882033 at Backcountry.com on 12/23/2013

Great jacket. Just what i was looking for, something to wear on super cold days. 6 foot 175 and bought a large which fits nice, doesnt have that" jogging short" type cut, which seems to be the norm with techie jackets these days. Only works while as an outer layer, with the hood and fluff doesnt layer well. But over all a nice jacket

Negative Reviews:

Hi, sorry, but I didn't like this jacket at all. I am from Russia, the winter is very cold here. Comparing it with The North Face Nuptse this jacket has a number of disadvantages. First, is that it is not close-fitting my body. The sleeves and the cut are too wide. As a result my back, shoulders and arms getting always cold. And there is no such a problem with The North Face Nuptse jacket of the same size. For example, when it is -10C -15C outdoors, I just can take on the t-shirt and Nuptse and will not feel any cold... Really, I do not understand the concept of this jacket. Its down is too weak that the jacket do not quickly restore its shape if you crumple it. This is very bad, because the jacket doesn't keeps the shape when you are wearing it. It always halls in shoulders, looks ugly. The single benefit is that it is hooded.
