Marmot Mountain Down Jacket Men’s – Review

Being a proud resident of the wonderful country known as Canada, I have to find creative ways of battling the cold every once in a while. Dealing with cold is one of those things you just have to put up with if you want to live near the mountains. Speaking of which, I like to go mountain hiking occasionally.

For the last few years, I’ve had one and the same jacket that I used for this. But after so many years of receiving a beating from the wild outdoors, that particular jacket just couldn’t go on anymore. It was worn and torn everywhere. So that’s why I got the Marmot Mountain Down Jacket!

This jacket totally did it for me. When I received it, I tried it on and was readily impressed with how well this jacket kept me warm. I went mountain hiking the very next weekend and this down jacket didn’t let me down. Not one time!

I dislike it when I get all overheated and my body starts to perspire excessively. Ofcourse, when being active outdoors, you cannot stop perspiration completely. But this jacket is sufficiently breathable that, at the very least, it doesn’t promote extra perspiration. This is quite a step forward from my previous jacket, which can’t hold a candle to this one.

This jacket has two pockets on the outside and one on the inside. While there are jackets out there that have way more pockets, the pockets of this jacket are absolutely huge. I can’t believe how much storage space there is in there. I now use these pockets to bring a few sandwiches for when I get hungry while I’m hiking. With pockets that large, the jacket doesn’t really need to have a lot of them.

The hood seals off your head from the cold just as well as you might expect from looking at the image. I imagine that some people will also want to use this mountain down jacket as a skiing jacket. With a hood that protective, it’s hard to imagine that you would ever feel the stinging, frosty cold of the winter weather on your face. I personally am warm and comfortable as heck in this jacket. It’s one of the best I’ve ever bought and I’m impressed, for sure!
