A little bit of everything
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
When it comes to tech gear, I generally collect all the features I look for, and pray to find something that matches it as closely as possible. When it comes to soft shells, this fit the bill, and on top of that, it quite literally fit the bill. Stretch fabric, a well fitted design that is good looking, comfortable, practical, and easily layerable in the right size, a minimalist design that is very tastefully carried out (waterproof napoleon zip, pockets double as vents that not only work marvellously, but are also far more accessible than traditional pit zips) and to top it all off, a breathable, lightweight fabric that is, on top of everything, waterproof.
My only gripe is that the original jacket I bought was not perfectly treated, where the cuffs and shoulders were not beading water and were in fact soaking into the jacket, costing me an unnecessary 40$ shipping it back, but even with that in mind, the jacket is still a lot cheaper than many comparable products.
I am 6', 160lb and I found the jacket a little short on the torso in a medium, but a perfect fit in the large, not too baggy either for someone that likes slim fitting clothes that don't hang/get in the way. I'm excited to put more use into the jacket, and I think if this one is properly waterproof (fingers crossed, haven't gotten caught in the rain since the exchange came in) it should be the perfect 4 season do-it-all jacket for me. Very impressed overrall with marmot.
Also a shoutout to the backcountry reps that helped me out greatly throughout the entire process!
