The Marmot Men's Ascension Jacket has your back during your alpine ascent. The MemBrain FusionDri shell with fully taped seams is completely waterproof, and the water-resistant front zipper enhances your chances of staying dry in an unexpected rainstorm. The FusionDri technology, which features DriClime mesh bonded to a highly breathable membrane, moves moisture away from your skin extremely quickly, so you don't suffer through the sweat-freeze cycle that mountain athletes experience in high-intensity stop-go activities. If a little extra ventilation is needed, PitZips let out a bit of steam as you rest on the belay stance after an intense pitch.

A stretchy nylon shell lets you move freely in this durable jacket, as does Marmot's Angel Wing Movement design. The Ascension features Pack Pockets that are accessible even with a harness or pack on. An adjustable hood with a laminated wire brim stays out of your eyesight when you belay your buddy. Asymmetric cuffs keep the sleeves out of your hands so you can grab those jugs comfortably. And they're adjustable to seal the cold out, and the drawcord at the hem cinches tightly across your waist to keep warmth in.

Hi. What kind of fit is this jacket? I prefer slim. Is its cut similar to Marmot's Alpinist Jacket?

This is not a 3-in-1 jacket and is therefore unfortunately not zip-in compatible. The Marmot Ascension jacket is a technical shell that can be layered with a light fleece underneath for insulation during technical climbing or skiing for added warmth in cold conditions.
