Great Active Mid Layer for Backcountry

Posted on

The green color had me before hello and the ability to work well in the backcountry will see this jacket being used many more times. They claim it to be a mid layer but it's not quite as warm as what most would expect. I call it an active mid layer as it worked great at breathability while skiing the backcountry. I just unzipped while hiking up and then zipped it up for an awesome ride down. It also worked well alone with only a base layer during resort skiing at Alta in 10-15 degree weather.

Matt, enjoyed your company while shooting this and got a great shot of you giving us the thumbs up. Call me and I'll send it over!!!!

Nice material, not a great mid-layer fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I'm fairly thin (6'3", 185#) so thought it would be OK despite other reviewers' comments of the sleeves being small. Large was OK fit for torso although a bit baggy at shoulders and upper arms, and nice long sleeves. But the tight elbows/forearms were a deal-breaker. I wanted it for a mid-layer for skiing, which by definition means wearing over a base layer. It's uncomfortable and too much work to pull the sleeves on over a medium base layer. The materials are very nice, though, so 3 stars for that.

I might have also tried the Marmot Variant, but maybe it has the same sleeve design. I ended up with the SmartWool PhD Divide, which is a similar hybrid jacket, maybe not quite as warm, but easy to wear and very comfortable with great mobility.

Responded on

agreed on the above, materials etc are awesome but arms are tough to layer over anything, the arms are comparable to a Patagonia R1 jacket in material & fit. For under 30F you'd need a baselayer under this Midlayer for resort skiing or anything stop & go. Alpha pro insulation is the real deal though!

Awesome jacket

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Got this jacket for Christmas. Used it this past weekend hiking in Moab, UT. First day was overcast and 34 degrees with 4-6 inches of snow on the ground. I had on a base layer t-shirt and a mid layer lightweight 1/4 zip long sleeve and then this jacket. I was nice and warm all day. Second day I wore basically the same set up with sunny skies and 25 degrees at the trailhead. Quickly warmed up to 41 and had to shed the jacket! It performed exactly as I had hoped it would. The construction is awesome and the jacket is very comfortable. As mentioned in another review, the fit is more athletic and the sleeves are a little snug. But the large fit me perfect at 6'1" and 190 pounds. My next use will be as a mid layer under my Marmot Mantra ski jacket on the slopes in Colorado. Can hardly wait!

Update: missed the ski trip but used the jacket again this weekend back in Moab! Weather was partly cloudy, 30 degrees and the wind was blowing 15-25 mph! I have to say, this jacket did awesome! Again, I just had a light t-shirt and mid layer and then the jacket. The wind was no problem except on my face and ears which I remedied. I have been more than happy with this jacket!

Fit is completely off

  • Gender: Male

I really wanted to love this jacket. The insulation mapping and features sounded great and I thought this would be a great mid-layer for cold days and great outer layer for warmer days. It still may be. If one has the right body type.

The fit of this jacket was completely off. Normally I wear a large, and after trying this on in a store I decided I should really size up to an XL. However, then the body and the sleeves of the jacket were very long. The forearms were still incredibly tight while the upper arms and shoulders were even baggier. Overall the body was still tight, and with the added length everything just bunched up.

If Marmot was to redesign the fit of this jacket, I think it would be great and would probably rate five stars. As is, two stars for the insulation combination.

Great Mid Layer

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have been using this under my FlyLow Lab Coat as an insulating layer this year for temps down into the single digits. Using just this and a lightweight wool base layer I have stayed very warm and comfortable.

The cinch at the neck is a great feature for locking out the drafts, and the combination of materials seems to do the job. The sleeves are fairly tight, so you may not be able to wear a heavy long sleeve layer underneath.

The double zipper adds a nice touch if you need to adjust a harness or get at anything below the waist.

Polartec Alpha insulation breathes well and prevents that clammy feeling while still offering some wind resistance if used as an outer layer.
