Description

Chiseled from granite and blessed with mountainous protection.

You'll find the mountain of Cerro Torre buried deep in the Southern ice fields of Patagonia. The weather is unforgiving and ever-changing, and the terrain is chalked with rocky spires and icy pitches of rime ice. It was here that Marmot's athletes put the design of the Cerro Torre Jacket to the ultimate test before their clever engineers refined this elite mountaineering shell to perfection. Professional-grade waterproof breathable Gore-Tex Pro Shell shrugs off torrential downpours or snowstorms, the Gale-Force hood and its laminated brim protect your face in brutal wind, and front hand pockets feature laser-drilled backings that elevate jacket breathability in an ingenious fashion. To call the Cerro Torre simply a jacket would be an injustice; this a supremely capable tool for alpinists with a penchant for traveling through nasty, high-alpine terrain and even nastier weather.

  • Waterproof breathable Gore-Tex Performance shell blocks outside moisture so you stay bone-dry in storms and also allows sweaty vapor to escape through the fabric to the outside when you start to heat up
  • Pro Shell is Gore-Tex's most durable and most weatherproof fabric
  • Seams are fully taped in order to increase overall weatherproofing
  • Articulated-fit Angel-Wing Movement means that you can lift your arms and reach freely without experiencing lifting at the hem
  • Underarm vents come in handy when you need to dump excess heat, and these vents use water-resistant zippers to keep moisture out
  • Gale-Force Hood has a laminated wire brim that keeps precipitation out of your face, and the brim won't fold when faced with heavy wind
  • Hood is large and contoured so it easily fits over a ski or climbing helmet
  • Intuitive, one-handed ERG Hood adjustment allows you to cinch this hood down over your head and around your face quickly
  • Zip-off powder skirt includes gripper elastic that keeps it in place when you're trudging through a deep snowbank or skiing on a powder day
  • DriClime-lined chin guard feels smooth and comfortable against your chin so there's no chafing from the neck of the jacket
  • Chest and hand pockets feature water-resistant zippers
  • Laser-drilled pocket backing enhances breathability without reducing the waterproof rating or overall weatherproof protection

Great shell. Close to perfect.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Ive used it spring skinning in the Sierras in +50 degree temps, i've used it hiking/shredding at 18,000' in -25, i've used it hanging out at crags in summer downpours. I don't know if that qualifies as "the wringer" but these are my experiences.

Pros:
-Pockets! Combining hand warmers and crossovers hits the nail on the head.
-Great technical fit. Maybe not the most technical if youre ice climbing but if you ski/mountaineer it's a great ski jacket with a lot less bulk than most.
-Great hood for hunkering down, with or without helmet. Soft material that wont chafe your face.
-Kept the elements out in my experiences. Stayed bone dry in pouring rain, kept cold wind out.
-Didn't have to take it off on warm skin tracks. Just unzip everything and you should be good.
-Removable powder skirt makes this very versatile.

Cons:
-I'd call it perfect if the powder skirt could integrate to pants. Not sure why Marmot doesn't do this.
-Pit zips are easy to open but hard to close. This is mainly due to the tiny zippers. Not the end of the world.

Note: Totally a material thing (not the jacket's fault) but I don't think Gore Tex Pro really breathes at all. Specially not for how much its hyped. I paid the premium for their warranty, otherwise I think theres plenty of cheaper materials that are just as good... Anyways, breathability is relative. You dont want it when its cold, you want it when its warm. Luckily this jacket vents well but will also block out the gnar when you need. No jacket will ever be 100% right for everyone's preferences.

Great shell. Close to perfect.

Hey man, I just got this jacket and I cant wait to use it next season. If you are looking for it to be compatible with pants, these will zip into the Marmot Freerider Ski Pants. they are a super bomber pair of shell pants! its a great combo together.

The shell I currently wear is a 3 layer(not Gore-Tex Pro), and I noticed that after the face fabric gates saturated with water, the inside feels damp and clammy against the skin(like I have noticed with 2 and 2.5 layer fabrics). So I was wondering if anyone who had experience with it could tell me if this is an issue with Gore-Tex Pro as well or not.

I have had the outside face fabric soaked with gore pro and while this makes the jacket feel like its wet it is not actually clammy on the inside. You just can't beat gore-pro

Overall a solid shell, but...

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

The pros: many pockets, and even one on the forearm; Gore-Tex Pro fabric; light weight; helmet compatible hood; armpit vents; sized with enough room to wear over your layers, but not baggy.

The cons: My main disappointment is that the front zipper is not a two way design. This jacket could make one a bit clumsy if used for a technical climb requiring a harness. The new version from Marmot may now incorporate the two way zipper, but this is the discontinued model lacking that feature. I find this surprising for a product at the MSRP of $549.95, but Marmot has always been a little behind with their technical shells compared to Outdoor Research, Mammut, Mountain Hardwear or any of the other major brands for that matter. Stick to Marmot for their sleeping bags, but they need to catch up on their apparel.

I also find the visual aesthetic of the Cerro Torre Jacket to be outdated compared to the other major brands; however, I didn't take off another star for this, because such a characteristic depends, at least consciously, on each individual.

I initially ordered a different jacket (a cool Outdoor Research model), but somehow it actually did not exist in their inventory after my credit card was charged. To compensate the Backcountry staff and I agreed on the Marmot Cerro Torre Jacket to replace the missing OR item. I needed a shell jacket for a glaciated route up Mt. Shasta, but I still had to cancel due the late delivery; however, I appreciate the professionalism and wonderful gesture of the Backcountry staff.

Special Thanks to you all.

Good jacket at a good price

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

5'10" 185 lbs Chest 41" Size L
I got this jacket specifically for skiing. Needed the windproof waterproof breathable Gore-Tex Pro Shell but with bells and whistles at a reasonable price. Compared to Arc'teryx Vertical.
GOOD: Lots of pockets: 2 chest pockets easy to reach while wearing a pack/avalung on the lift or in the heli (deep enough for a radio); 2 hand warmer pockets; 1 left wrist pocket for small items.Interior left goggle pouch (no closure). Hood works w/ or w/o helmet. 2 types of fabric, hard shell + soft shell = less crunchy. Pit zips vent well. Good fit for me; works fine with T-shirt underneath or a down sweater. On sale for less than Arc Vertical and fits me better (Arc jacket too baggy on top and too crunchy).
BAD: The zipper pull cords are tiny, not easy to pull with heavy gloves. The zippers are sticky, especially annoying are the pit zips and front zipper which sometimes require 2 hands. A little silicone helps, but zippers not as one-handed-smooth as Arc zips. Stowaway hood option would be nice. No zippered inside pocket for wallet/cash.

Excellent Jacket

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

I boiled my choices to the Cerra Torre, Alpinist and Flylow Quantum. I chose the Cerra Torre and couldnt be happier (so far). I opted for the Gortex Pro Shell primarily due to its tested longevity and breathability. The jacket I must say is very nice. I'm going to use it primarily for skiing however rainy days, hiking, camping, mtn biking in rain, it will probably be put to good use. The material is excellent. The fit for me is perfect. I loved the fact it has lots of deep pockets, 2 chest, handwarmers, internal. The hood is excellent and the neck comes up pretty high when getting pounded by snowmaking guns on a frozen chairlift. I see myself getting many years out of this jacket.

Tight bottom opening - No two way zipper

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I wanted to love the jacket, but for some reason the bottom opening was very narrow. it was fine standing up, but sitting down made me nervous the zipper was going to break. I also noticed that the picture shows a two-way zip so you could open it from the bottom, but the jacket does not have one (I even called Marmot to verify this).

I've never had the issue with other jackets--all of the Arcteryx jackets I tried on (Alpha, Beta, Theta) and Marmot jackets that I own, and North Face that I've owned and tried on have all fit fine and have plenty of room at the bottom, so maybe I just got one that was cut wrong? Everything else was fine (size was an XL for my 6'2"/ 205lb frame).

From the limited time I had with it, it seemed very durable and well made.

Thing is dope

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

scooped and have been rockin it since end of summer and I must say it is a bombproof shell. I am a fly fishing guide/ ski bum and constantly beat down my outer till its holy lookin. needed a 3 layer that can stack up to my beefy waders, we'd give this one a try. So far it held up through a ton of bush wackin and downpours. Not showing any signs of wear. Stoked to test of the skirt on some pow and see how she goes....as of now a big thumbs UP. will put through the wringer.

The Jacket is good. The Pro Shell Gore is ery good, hood fits well, comfortable pockets. I use it for mountinr climbing. I have no problems with movement in the jacket. The only problem I've noticed is the zipper, it is the weakest part
