Description

Skip all the BS bells and whistles and charge on through the storm in the Marmot Exum Jacket.

When dark clouds loom and ridgeline winds howl, you'll be glad you're wearing the Marmot Exum Jacket. With Gore-Tex Pro 3-layer fabric and Gale Force hood, the Exum Jacket provides a bombproof storm fortress that stands up to the nastiest weather. The Exum's active fit leaves room for a layering while Angel Wing sleeve design grants full range of motion without the climbing hem, bare-belly side-effect. The Exum's 3-layer Gore-Tex Pro grants the highest performing weather protection in the industry, so you know you'll stay dry no matter how wet the snow or heavy the rain. The hood's laminated wire-brim visor keeps annoying rain or snow out of your face, and the front pockets are placed perfectly for easy-access while wearing a pack. Plus, the light-on-logo aesthetic keeps things nice and simple.

Great shell jacket

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This jacket holds what it's promising. Used this for a couple of years now both summer and winter, in rain and snow and it rocks. A very good buy :)

Are there any differences in the models...

Are there any differences in the models (by year) besides the color? I am talking about the exum after introducing goretex pro (vs xcr).

from wath I know from this site the colors r true

I'm 6'2" and 191 lbs. What size would be...

Posted on

I'm 6'2" and 191 lbs. What size would be better? Won't XL be too baggy for me? This jacket is supposed to be used mostly in winter conditons with fleece layer. Thanks.

Responded on

If you want a snug fit with a fleece underneath I would go with the Large. The XL will be a relaxed fit IMO.

Responded on

I'm 6'1, 180, and I have the medium. Definitely get the Large instead of the XL

i am 5'6'', 170lbs, what size for me?
small or medium?

Responded on

I would recommend a medium. Consider a large if you plan on layering under it, although the sleeves and torso length might be a little long with a large.

Hi, I am 5'5 158lbs with a 39" chest. Would the small fit me with a Montbell UL down jacket and a base layer? I typically wear a medium in Mountain Hardware.

Responded on

Mark, I would go with the Medium.

I am curious of the fit of this jacket...

I am curious of the fit of this jacket compared to the alpinist by marmot or possibley the Stretch Element by Patagonia. I am lookign for sometign trim (alpine cut) and knwo the other two models mentioend are what I like, saddly cant find Stretch in small anywhere but curious if this might fit the bill.

Responded on

Marmot's jackets all tend to be alpine cut.

Excellent Shell.

Excellent shell. It's a technical shell and is wonderful for that purpose... don't have expectations of it being a "warm" coat.

I've had an Exum for 3-4 years now and it's my go to shell for skiing, hiking, etc. I'm 6' 180lbs and the Large fits me perfectly. Great protection as you would imagine, it has the necessary adjustments etc and no unnecessary frills which is nice, the front pocket placement is perfect for anyone else who frequently wears a pack as I do, when you close the hood it goes high enough to cover your mouth and does have soft fleece-like material where it contacts your face, wrist closures work well.

Overall, I love this shell and would happily buy another or recommend it to a friend who is worthy of it's features.

Excellent Shell.

Hi Cory,
Does the jacket have have underarm zippers ?

I just purchased the Exum and I'm concerned...

Posted on

I just purchased the Exum and I'm concerned about how far the collar comes up over your face, it seems it's always in your face when fully zipped. I wore my old Patagonia Pac-lite skiing Mt Hood yesterday and was pulling my collar up in the wind to seal out the chill. With the Exum that would not be the case, but does it cinch down when things heat up? Are all helmet compatible hoods long collared like the exum?

Responded on

I was concerned myself...at first.... I use this jacket primarily for skiing, and I almost always zip it all the way up...then scrunch it down under the chin. Works well, and I can hide my face on the chair ride up. Unfortunately the design flaw, for me, is when it is less than fully zipped. Then the fabric flaps all over the place...again, while skiing. Having said all this, I love this jacket and am willing to overlook this one niggle. hth.

Excellent shell.

Having used an Arcteryx Beta AR shell for many many years, I got one of these 2 years ago as a replacement..mainly because the older jackets hood did not fit my helmet well. This jacket is lighter and has been an excellent ski jacket. Easy to layer under, light, bombproof as far as wind/snow...and even rain....and although some don't like the collar/hood, I always zip it all the way up and the collar sits in front of your chin and does not flap around. The hood works well with ski/climbing helmets.
I'm 5'11'' and 180 lbs...went with a large cause I wanted room to layer. The M was a little tight across the upper back/shoulders.

Durable&Weatherproof with Awesome fit

The Exum is super weatherproof and durable. I'm even more impressed by it's ability to breathe and the great fit through the shoulders and sleeves. I love the longer sleeve length. The placement of the pockets is great (above a pack's waistbelt) and the hood is easily adjustable and accepts a helmet nicely! I'm 6' and 185lbs and the medium fits great and will accomodate layers. You won't be dissatisfied with this shell.

What is your chest size?

Responded on

For me, 5'11" 185, the L works better. Best advice is to try both M and L...I did. You won't regret it.

Is this a 2007 or 2009/10 model?

Great wind and rainproof jacket

I use my jacket for the windy and rainy winter seasons in SF. Kept me dry in every situation. It also packs nicely into your backpack to be prepared for sudden weather changes. An additional plus goes to the inside material which won't stick to your skin if you only wear it with a T-Shirt. All in all a highly recommend buy.

Great Waist Length Jacket

I bought this jacket because it was the one of the most affordable ProShell II jackets and I've always been happy with Marmot product. It was well constructed and fit me nicely except that it was waist length (meaning it went down just an inch from your belt line). I had looked on Marmot's website to see if it was a waist length or hip length jacket, but they made no mention of it. Ended up returning it because I wanted a hip length jacket. If you want an affordable well made jacket then the Exum should be on your list. Just note it is goes down to your waist in the front length.

Responded on

So, can you recommend a hip length pro shell?

Responded on

Medium should work fine. You'll have room to layer, but it won't be too big when it's worn alone.

Highly Recommended

This is a great jacket. I've had mine for a few seasons and it has held up beautifully.
It does exactly what I need it to do - keep me dry and comfortable while skiing or enjoying other back-country pursuits.

It is super packable. Stuff it in the pack, pull it out when necessary. It takes up so little space.

The fabric seems thin, yet my jacket has help up against various abrasions and a few falls on ice (while skiing).

It was designed to be high tech, without the bells and whistles. That's exactly what it is.

I got this before the Troll Wall (and other Marmot Pro 3L ski shells) came out. So, I wish that I had at least one jacket with a powder skirt. The Troll Wall appears to be this jacket with the powder skirt.

However, if you don't need the extra bells, this jacket is a great choice.

Still, like all jackets at this level, it isn't cheap.

Lightweight, Weatherproof, Simple, Killer. Wore it up McKinley, and now wear it on ice-climbing trips. Hey "iro" I agree, much better than paclite, and if it's something you're going to see yourself using regularly, it's worth the step up (more money, but weight difference is negligible to all but the tag-trimming, gram counters). I personally tend to be overheated as opposed to cold, and this jacket did a great job of keeping me dry from both inside and out. My only beef is that the pockets are placed high so they won't interfere with a pack belt, but they are really high, they're more like chest pockets (I know, picky-picky). Really love it a lot. Great product.Photo: Marmot Exum Jacket with MT. HDWR Compressor Jacket over it at 16,200' on Denali.
