The test discovered some surprises, such as the Montbell, which packs serious warmth in a relatively streamlined jacket weighing under a pound. A medium sample had some fit issues on our testers who bordered in between medium and large, a not too uncommon problem for manufacturers and people needing to stay warm.
Like the Eddie Bauer, the Marmot is feature-rich, heavy, and wind-beating. But there are always compromises to be made. The big difference maker for those in our latest round of testing is the extent of moisture protection. These are big coats that can be hard to wear under a hardshell. Water repellent down, after all, is not water- proof down. The jackets run the gamut of fabrics and insulations, a few combining multiples to ensure improved weather resistance or exterior toughness.
Big Agnes used its water-repellent DownTek at fill power to puff-up its test entry, and the result was a sleeping-bag like experience while upright and active. How well do these jackets fight off the elements? Can they stop rain, long enough at least, to add a layer that can? And if they happen to get soaked, how well does the down hold up? Testers aimed to answer these questions as well as they could given conditions, and most found that collectively, these jackets are solid weather deterrents, however, some are better than others, such as the Eddie Bauer and the Marmot.
Scores in this category come down to more than just clever fabrics. Features play a role, too. However, when it comes to stopping wind, it is mainly about the fabrics and construction. If down moves around within the baffles, cold spots open up.
As warm as the Big Agnes is, it just squeaked above average because its shell tended to wet-out quickly and was susceptible to wind. The only nuance to scoring here is evaluating how well that warmth can be controlled. Once toasty, what mechanisms are in place fabrics and features to allow the jacket to breathe a little? The Eddie Bauer has core zips from elbow to rib cage to help it breathe, but those features are negated by the fact that the other two proved slightly warmer to testers when subjected to static, straight-up cold.
Fit is about how a coat hangs on the body and how it works with other layers. In essence, they were too big. Yet, in terms of something that fundamentally feels good to put on, there was no beating the Big Agnes Fire Tower Belay jacket. Manufacturers have many choices to make in this department.
And, do more features put upward pressure on price? Yet, given its overall functionality, it would be hard to argue the features are superfluous. That might soon lead to reduced technical features, such as helmet-compatible hoods or wide, mitten-friendly cuffs. Still, common features include elasticized cuffs, hem drawcords, draft-guards behind zippers, and internal drop pockets.
Two-way zippers are a valuable feature, and pocket placement was more important to some testers than we would have expected. Jackets were put through the paces in the late fall and winter of in the northern Sierras, primarily around the town of Truckee.
A few managed to be on heavy travel schedules with nordic and downhill ski coaches to the East Coast and the Rocky Mountains, helping score for packability and durability. Testers were asked to use the jackets in as authentic as possible conditions, but to also take time considering surface-level reasons to buy the product. Does it look good? Would you buy it after the test? Why did you buy the other jackets you own? In the end the jackets were used during days on the lift, running around town, as insulation during après tailgates, and snowshoe dayhikes.
These jackets will be seen at high-elevation mountaineering camps in the spring, and in huts and winter ski shelters. Expect hoods, high fill-power counts, and to be warm. Down production methods, sewing tactics, moisture management characteristics, and evolving exterior shell fabrics have combined to provide the market with highly technical and in many cases, life-saving pieces of apparel.
The coats in this category, once considered too heavy for general day trips, can now be shoved into a pack without much hassle.
