Gear Question

Posted on

can someone compare this to Marmot's DriClime? I love my marmot, but need a little warmer option for cool but not freezing colorado days. I'm looking for an in-between wen it's colder than the marmot and warmer than is good for my big poofy down coat.

atomicski. The Windstopper Tech Jacket is a Windstopper Fleece Jacket where the Driclime Windshirt is a basically a lined windshirt. The fleece on the Windstopper Tech Jacket is similar to a 100wt. fleece which is then backed with the windstopper laminate from Gore and then completed with a mesh backer on the inside of the fabric. The fleece, the laminate and the backer appear to be and are in fact one piece of fabric. It is 100% windproof and the fleece has been treated with a DWR to repel water and snow. The Driclime Windshirt is made with a what I imagine to be a nylon outer shell and then Marmots DriClime fleece hung on the inside. This fleece, according to their website is a Bi-Component Wicking Lining. The outer shell would make it practically windproof and the lining would provide a little warmth as you know. Both of these jackets would be water resistant and I believe the Windstopper Tech Jacket would fit your use perfectly. Mine does! Hope this helps!
