Loftily filled with 800-power goose down insulation and protected by wind-resistant ultralight fabrics, the Marmot Ama Dablam Jacket offers exceptional warmth for everything from backpacking to mountaineering to around town use.
Due to the high loft and compressibility of the 800 fill-power goose down, the Ama Dablam Jacket can be packed down small and easily stowed in a pack and pulled out when you need extra warmth. Marmot's Angel Wing movement design in the shoulders keeps the jacket from riding up and offers mobility for cross-country skiing or climbing when the weather is cold enough that you need a layer of insulation under a shell.
Adjustable Velcro/elastic cuffs, an attached, adjustable down-filled hood and an elastic draw cord hem allow cold air to be sealed out of the Ama Dablam Jacket, while wind-resistant, rip-stop fabrics work to keep windy gusts and snow from getting in. A regular styled fit lets you layer weatherproof shells over the Ama Dablam Jacket and makes it equally comfortable to wear alone or over light mid-layers. Two zippered hand warmer pockets, a Napoleon-style chest pocket and an inside zip stuff sack pocket allow you to stow smaller items like a headlamp or cell phone.
The Marmot Ama Dablam Jacket is available in a variety of color and sizes.

Likes: The style and warmth and quality of construction and materials. Plus it had great reviews. The ability to cinch the hood and the pockets are great, the sizing was perfect. I was a little worried as it was so light but the 800 fill down and the hood really do their magic.
Dislikes: The only downside and why I did not give it 5 starts is because the shell material got a small stain on it pretty easily, I dont know what from, probably something with an oil or grease in it. I'm not sure if this is applicable to all down coats because the one I replaced with this had gotten some stains (it looks like the jacket has damp blotches) that would not wash out and it was 10 years old.
Likes: I absolutely love this jacket. Super lightweight not the lightest though weighing in at 19.1 oz but its far more functional than other lighter jackets on the market due to the large interior pocket and chest pocket along with hood cinch and design, etc... so its great for everyday use as well as backpacking. Super warm as well with 800 fill down. I found this jacket to have a perfect balance between portability and functionality...just what I needed. You can't go wrong with Marmot.
