The Marmot Men's Ares Jacket is a lightweight down jacket for backcountry hiking and snowshoeing. The Ares is a 600 fill power down insulated jacket, with down defender, a coating which allows the down to resist moisture to keep you warmer in case it gets wet. The polyester mini-ripstop fabric protects the down from the harsh outside world and is coated with a durable water repellent finish so a light rain or snow won't soak into the surface. The regular fit allows for layers underneath and over top and the angel-wing movement keeps the jacket in place when raising your arms. Everyone likes a good stretch now and then.

Products on Sale are Discontinued Styles or Colors.

DWR tech

Durable Water Repellant
DWR (Durable Water Repellent) is a coating that is applied to fabrics which makes them water-resistant, or hydrophobic. A DWR finish doesn't interfere with breathability, which makes it perfect for adverse conditions in the backcountry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm and well built I had a Patagonia down "sweater" jacket that wasn't warm enough. So I tried the Ares hoping it would provide the warmth I wanted. This jacket feels a million times better than the Patagonia. The shell is more substantial and the pockets are lined. Oh yeah, and it is definitely plenty warm! It isn't a bulky jacket either and the Angel Arm thing is a nice touch. Had it in a snow, with howling winds and sub freezing temps and with only a fleece pullover, and a long sleeve thermal shirt I was sweating and had to unzip. I'm 5'9" and 155#'s. Bottom line it's awesome. Does get wet if subjected to massive amounts of moisture but was still warm. Recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got it in that cool retro orange, LOVE IT! I've had this jacket for just over a month now and man, it's just awesome. I love everything from the awesome, retro colors/style, to the outstanding quality and features of this jacket. It's February in Utah and I've been wearing this thing around outside with nothing but a T-shirt on underneath. It is Toasty with a capital T. It's also really, really light too, and the part I love most is it's ability to pack into it's own pocket. This baby turns into a perfect pillow for me to use in my sleeping bag at night. Here's what you do: Wear it at night, pack it up in its pocket, use it as a pillow/keep it warm, wake up and throw it back on. This jacket gives probably the most stylish middle finger to cold weather I've ever seen. I get compliments all the time on the color too!(sexy orange/lime) I would definitely recommend this to someone looking for a super high-quality down that's got more attractive colors and a price that doesn't make the wife question your sanity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maine winter killer. After a recent cold spell last month I decided it was time for a down jacket. Couldn't have made a better decision. I am 5'11'' and 185lbs. and the Large fits absolutely perfect. Length, sleeves, everything is right. Tight up under the armpits, which I like. Not "boxy" like several others that I tried on. Looks good, keeps me warm, all good things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket & Pillow? Jacket is ultrawarm, ultrasoft, ultralight and ultrastylin'!  Cool retro look.  The jacket can be completely tucked and zipped up into one of it's own pockets turning the jacket into a great travel pillow!!  Bout the size of a cantaloup when stuffed into it's pocket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jacket but needs more.... How about at least one zip napolean pocket, a zip interior pocket, and possibly a hooded version. That being said, great jacket, love the shades of green version

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and warm! Very happy with my purchase. The jacket is warm and thin enough to layer underneath.  Plus it folds into itself to transport.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm, Lightweight, Comfy, Not Bulky, and Stylish I recently decided to purchase a down jacket because I needed something warm, comfortable, and not bulky. After much research, I decided to go with this jacket in vintage orange/mahogany. The jacket is warm, high quality, very lightweight, nicely fitting, and stylish. It's also so comfortable that I just want to keep it on even when I'm inside. I wore a button up shirt, Marmot 1/2 zip, and this jacket in 8 degrees F and was comfortable. I'm sure with the necessary layers, this jacket can withstand even colder temperatures and you will still be toasty. Even the zippered hand pockets are warm. Also, I'm skinny (5'7" and 115 lbs.) and the small is fitted on me. It's also a lot more stylish than other down jackets; my girlfriend loves the way it looks on me. It packs away in the left pocket nicely, which is great because it doesn't take up much space in my daypack. Overall, great product for a moderate price. I only wish there was a hood.
