Minnesota Winter Ready
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
After countless hours of research, and a few returned jackets, I gave Marmot a try and finally found a winner. Recently, I have started commuting via train, with a transfer and walk, to downtown Minneapolis. I refuse to go in the little box shelters with the rest of the lemmings. What I wanted was a jacket warm enough to handle standing at the train station in sub-zero weather with the snow flying, without being bulky like my North Face McMurdo parka (which is awesome, by the way). The Gorge Component is outstanding.
First commute with it was today in -15 degrees with very high winds. No problems whatsoever; stood outside grinning like an idiot. I was surprised that I did not overheat while wearing it sitting on the train or on the car ride in. The hood does a surprisingly good job of offering full coverage without blocking your line of sight. Material is clearly 100% windproof, flexible, and doesn't really seem to make much noise. Should handle the wear of the gearslinger backpack well. The jacket seems to be slimmer than a regular, but is not an athletic cut. I am an athletic 6' 4" and an XL fits perfect.
This might be my new all activities winter jacket up here in the tundra.
awesome customer service
So I haven't even received the jacket yet as I just ordered it. I was planning to buy from a competing site if they honored some expired rewards points (m**s*j*w.com) and mistakenly clicked on Backcountry's online chat. Not only did Backcountry beat the competing site's price with the expired rewards money taken off, they beat the free shipping too by several days. The customer service here is amazing (thanks Michael) and I hope the jacket lives up to its rave reviews on Marmot's site and here. I'll definitely be buying more from these guys.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
Marmot probably has the best 3-in-1 jackets, in my opinion. Each piece functions extremely well on it's own and they work seamlessly together. Good in wet weather, great in snow and cold. I probably wear the liner the most as it keeps you warm after a long day out in the cold. The Gorge is my go to jacket in New England. Only draw back seems to be that it is can be too warm if it isn't really cold. This leads to condensation builds up in the sleeves leading to very wet arms. 5'10/165 medium fits great.
First marmot jacket- small gray
I have had this jacket for little over 2 months now and have worn the full jacket, the liner and the shell several times now. Have worn them separately in cold, damp and heavy rain conditions. Spring in Missouri had been very wet and cold this year.
Like the liner best as it keeps me warm as I get cold easily. The fit is appropriate for me- 5'4" and 145lb. The shell IS waterproof and handy when you want to dispense with the umbrella for a quick dash to the store or local lunch eatery. The pockets are generous and accessible for lefties. The looks funny on my head but I think with some adjustments with the drawstrings,I will get it to fit better.
I am looking at this as an investment and a hoping it will last me a good long while.
Does anyone know how the cut on this jacket...
Does anyone know how the cut on this jacket runs? From the photos it looks like a regular or even relaxed cut versus the stated size, but it would be great to have confirmation from an owner!
Awesome looking, warm, water proof, insulated and tons of zippered pockets. The fact that it contains 3 different wearable combinations makes its for a very versatile jacket. Used it in Utah 20 - 30 degree weather and it out performed my expectations. Highly recommend this Jacket!
Love this Jacket
First off I'm impressed with the quality. Everything seems to be durable and well made. I wear the soft shell all the time. It is perfect for around town. It is warm, not bulky, looks good, and had plenty of places to stash things. I haven't worn the outer layer as much but when I have it works great as a windbreaker and keeps you dry. The hood cinches down to keep you warm but can be positioned so its not all bunched up in the face. Very comfortable. The soft shell zips into the outer jacket and has taps that keep the sleeves from slipping. The combo is great for winter fun. I mostly hike and camp and this has been a perfect winter jacket for those activities. I would recommend it to anyone.
I'm wearing the soft shell for my Marmot Gorge jacket. It is warm, good workmanship and meets expectations.

Is the hood helmet compatible?
You should be fine wiht a low profile helmet like a climbing helmet or some of the slimmer snow sports helmets. Bulkier helmets will be tougher to get a good fit with.
Marmot Video Review
Curly's Clips - Marmot review of the jacket.
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have only had this jacket for a short period but it has been all I asked for. I wanted a waterproof shell with a inner liner and this was a great option. There are other options out there but this is a great value for the cost. It has many zippered areas inside and out. The hood is somewhat lightweight but the molded bill is a great touch to help keep it in place when windy. The inner liner does NOT attach to the outer shell (at the back of the neck) when both are zipped together. It is not a problem area just a different option that I have seen on many other 3 in 1's. I have not had it out in a downpour yet but hope to put it through all the seasons here in Chicago soon.
I am roughly 5'11'' and 130 pounds(kind...
I am roughly 5'11'' and 130 pounds(kind of on the scrawny side). Would a medium work for fit or would it be a little to big? And are there any other places the liner connects to the shell other than the zipper?
Thanks for the question. When it comes to sizing you to the Marmot Gorge Component Jacket - Men's, you're right on the lower end of the Medium size, but I'd say to stick with that size. It might start out a bit big, but if you go any smaller the height of the garment won't match up with your own height.
which is a better jacket? warmer jacket?...
which is a better jacket? warmer jacket? Will be using it everyday in the cold midwest and occassionally skying.
