Forget about the forecast.
It really shouldn't matter whether its cold, wet, or snowy up on the mountain, because regardless of what the weather might be doing, you're going skiing and you're wearing your Marmot Men's KT Component 3-in-1 Jacket. You might say the Component is the key ingredient to a good day on the slopes thanks to its two-layer shell construction with fully taped seams, which puts a hold to any moisture that might otherwise ruin your ski day. A zip-out liner jacket offers additional warmth thanks to its synthetic insulation and can be worn on its own after another great day at your home mountain.
Apart from the 3-in-1 design, the KT Component hosts an assortment of other features you'll find make a day skiing a whole lot nicer. The hood of the jacket has a laminated brim for additional coverage from snow, while an internal powder skirt forms a snow-tight closure. Zippered core vents can be opened up when you need to lose a bit of heat, so you don't have to worry about overheating once the sun decides to show up. A zippered sleeve pass secures your ski pass, and an internal media-compatible pocket keeps your favorite music on deck while you ride.

- Q & A
It's OK; keeps me dry, not very warm
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Medium
I bought the KT Component jacket to replace an EMS insulated ski jacket whose color I'd grown tired of but used for every day winter wear the last few New England winters, and also consolidate to replace a Cloudveil shell I used only for skiing over base and mid-layers. Figured shell plus liner would be as good as the EMS, and shell only same as what I was using the Cloudveil for.
The Marmot is definitely as waterproof as the Cloudveil, which is great. I was out in pouring rain the other day snow-blowing and stayed completely dry. However it's nowhere near as warm as the EMS jacket is, the liner's warmth is very disappointing. Add another layer and it's fine, but as a go to jacket to throw on in the winter over whatever I might be wearing, it isn't warm enough.
Worked with Cameron C via chat, he made my special order very quick and easy!
