GREAT! if you don't own a helmet
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This could be the best jacket ever IF they made the hood large enough to fit over a helmet. So annoying. Jacket fits great, looks great, still getting used to this Marmont two tone nonsense. Can we have a solid colored jacket other than black please? best uses are active pursuits, don?t buy this if you intend on sitting on a chairlift or a bus stop in the wind and pouring rain. You will be very disappointed. Wore it with a 250 baselayer in the southern alps of new Zealand climbing and such. Felt great, even with nothing underneath. Performed well, but couldn?t throw the hood over my BD halfdome, again, annoying. It will serve well as a hiking jacket too. I like that the pockets don?t interfere with my harness or my pack. Most jackets, even my Alpha SV, has issues with pockets. The cut of this jacket is also a little long, so it doesn?t come untucked from your harress. Stretch is good, zippers function well, its plain and simple. Really a no nonsense jacket that?s light enough to take on every trip. I bought the green (bright grass), color is true and makes the photo?s in the snow much cooler. It?s a softshell with windstopper, great for stopping wind, terrible in the wet stuff.
