The Men’s Guides Down Hoody is a puffer-style jacket designed for warmth and comfort in harsh conditions. This lightweight winter coat and its attached hood are both insulated with 700 fill power down and protected with Down Defender—a moisture-resistant treatment that keeps the jacket's insulation from clumping and losing its loft when exposed to wet environments, thus increasing its ability to keep you warm when the weather takes a turn for the worse. Additionally, the Guides Hoody features zippered interior and chest pockets for storing small items, zippered handwarmer pockets for thawing cold fingers, adjustable Velcro cuffs and drawcord hem for superior fit and temperature regulation, and Marmot's Angel-Wing Movement for full range of motion.
This is a scam. I received a knock off jacket by a company called Wantdo with a Marmot tag attached to it.
I received this jacket and was very disappointed. I was looking for a heavy down jacket to wear on sometimes -30 degree days in Gunnison, CO. This is little more than a shell layer. In the pictures it looks big and puffy like coats I've gotten from Mountain Hardware and North Face in the past. My recommendation would be to buy those brands because I don't know where the 700 fill went, but it appears to have not gone in the jacket.
Didn’t know if I should give this jacket 4 or 5 stars. It is exactly what I wanted for a winter jacket; light weight, down filled. I am 5’8” and 170 lbs. The jacket fits perfectly. It also arrived in perfect condition. Hence the 5 stars. From some of the reviews I read I wouldn’t have been surprised if down feathers fell out of the package when I opened it, but that didn’t happen. All the down appears to be safely secured. The jacket is hanging in my closet waiting for colder weather. If it is as warm as advertised on a cold, snowy Michigan day my rating of 5 stars will be accurate.
I live in ridiculously cold Chicago and I already owned several winter down coats including North Face, Triple Fat Goose[ my previous favorite] and Mark Jones. I was still not totally happy with any of them. I bought this coat and it arrived yesterday. I don't want to take it off. It is very warm but soft and lightweight also. The pockets and hood are lined with down making them very warm. I don't even need to have a hat because the hood is that warm.
I wanted to love this jacket. And it has some great points. Good YKK double zipper. Good hydrophobic down, good fit. Warm core.
Absolutely great jacket! Comfortable and super warm! I read some reviews that stated the jacket was thin and not puffy. My jacket came and it was compressed a bit in the shipping bag. That is easily corrected by fluffing on low temp in the dryer with tennis balls or dryer balls. I washed my jacket right away with Nikwax Down Direct followed by Nikwax Down Proof (fantastic products). I called Marmot and they recommended these products. Once done, I couldn’t believe how the jacket puffed up and is super rain repellent. Highly recommend this jacket and Nikwax product line (sold here on amazon as well).
I love this jacket. Super warm, way warmer than your typical puffy. Nice hood that cinches down well. Velcro wrists are a must for me and these work great. Good zipper pulls. So far the quality has been outstanding and the fit is perfect for me. I typically wear this under a shell since I'm in a rainy environment and this jacket fits great under my shells despite it being puffier than your average puffy. Love the lined pockets and that the draw cords are stowed in the pockets instead of dangling around elsewhere. Two way zipper is fab. No complaints, super happy to be so warm on cold days.
I searched long and hard before I made my purchase and it was impossible to find another name brand, well made, 700 fill, down jacket within $75 of what it cost me. I wore it through 5 mile walks during a polar vortex and 2 bomb cyclones in Michigan with just a wool mid-layer and stayed comfortably warm. This was the best clothing purchase I've made in years.
Pues tras un viaje a Rumania en este invierno, he podido hacer un buen test a este chaquetón de plumas. Lo primero es decir que tras investigar en internet y encontrar una web donde prueban los chaquetones en alta montaña este es el mejor valorado calidad precio. Los hay con mejor calidad de pluma (a mayor “cuins” mejor pluma), este tiene 700 cuins que es una buena calidad siendo los mejores de 900 o incluso 1000 cuins, “lo que no te dicen los fabricantes es la cantidad de pluma que te trae”, por lo que puede que estes comprando un chaquetón con mejor pluma pero no por ello más cálido, este es el secreto de este chaquetón, ya que trae una cantidad muy alta pluma haciendolo muy muy cálido.
On the plus side it's lightweight, reasonably warm by UK weather standards, relatively wind-proof and so far waterproof.
I was almost put off by the review from another customer about the jacket being shiny in black, but i am so glad i bought it. I would not agree that it looks shiny. It has what i would describe as a soft sheen. Its certainly not shiny like you can get with some jackets. Its very nice and very warm too. The hood is adjustable at each side and doesnt come over your eyes when zipped right up. I like the fact there's a zipped inside pocket as well as a zipped chest pocket too and two side pockets which are also zipped. Warm and lighweight. Perfect and very pleased with it after trying many other brands of down jackets. 700 fill is super and its responsible filling too.
I did a lot of research before buying this jacket and because of reviews all over the net I decided on this one. When it came the package was so small I thought it must be a mistake. When I opened it the jacket looked so thin I thought it couldn't be any good.
Extremely Warm and comfortable jacket. Pockets are quite large can fit a lot of items into them and the jacket folds into a pocket which is neat. Can also adjust the waist and hood area to prevent wind from entering.
Amazing jacket I love it!
Quaity product. It does cost a bit more
Really warm ethical sourcing of down great for Britain’s cold weather
Quality. But was not keen on the colour/finish. Black I ordered, the finish was shiny not Matt so not to my taste. Returned
I absolutely love this jacket. Lightweight, warm and perfect fit makes it the ideal jacket for this winter.
Felt flimsy, poor quality for the price, returned
Good Fit and Warm
Product is great, amazing quality and very warm, would recommend to anyone looking for a warm coat. However the seller (BIKESTER) printed my address wrong and the product was nearly sent back, in the end I had to go to the depot to collect it myself.
It shows 700 fill power down, but it's a bit thinner...I think. cause this one is just a bit thick than my other down jackets.
Comfy, warm, stylish, light, excellent jacket.
