ROM? Right On, Man!

You could be skiing sunny May corn snow or leading a group across a glacier on a clear day in Alaska; moderate aerobic activities in cool, not-too-wet places darn-near beg you to enlist the Marmot ROM Men's Softshell Jacket. It uses Gore-Tex Windstopper to block the breeze, Marmot's M2 softshell fabric to provide decent warmth and excellent breathability (boosted by even-more-breathable side panels), and Marmot's Angel-Wing movement for a comfortable, ergonomic fit. It's loaded up with pockets, too, and has just enough water-repellency to keep you dry in a drizzle.

  • Gore-Tex Windstopper fabric
  • Marmot M2 softshell
  • Breathable side panels
  • Angel-Wing movement
  • Adjustable hood
  • Internal zip pocket
  • Asymmetric cuffs with hook-and-look closure

Unanswered Question

How would the Marmot ROM compare to the Mountain Hardwear Super Chockstone?

Does the hood fit over
a climbing helmet?

No it doesn't look like it does. Here's a review that mentions this specifically (albeit, in the women's version):


Great spring & fall jacket

  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 5'10"
    Weight: 175 lbs
    Size Purchased: Medium

40.5" chest, 33" waist. I got this to replace an old North Face McKinley that's seen better days. I've worn the ROM maybe 10 times, and it's been great. I wear a 34 dress shirt, and the sleeves stop right above my thumbs. It's not lined at all which gives it a wider temp range. Spring and fall in Boston usually means lots of wind and large temperature swings and this has kept me warm without overheating. It looks good with a polo or button-down on the way to the office, and has enough room for a fleece underneath at night. I'll probably wear it bike commuting in the winter and for some spring skiing next year.

what is a good waterproof, breathable shell to pair with or wear over the ROM?

Two great shells would be the Minimalist Jacket or the Precip Jacket to go over your ROM. The ROM is light and stretchy so a great mid layer as well as an outerlayer in warmer temps. The Minimalist is your Gore option, light and fast. The Precip Jacket is made with Nano Pro coating and the best waterproof/breathable at that price. Good luck!


A classic softshell for mild weather

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

Light weight, breathable, windstopper and keep you warm. I have used it during my SLC ice climbing in nearly freezing temperature and climbed Mt Rainier with it in late Aug. Performed pretty well as a softshell jacket. Wish it could be a little more water resistant but I know I can't ask too much of this from a softshell jacket. I have a black one but I wish I have bought some shining color. All three pockets are great for cellphone or handing warming. Doesn't come with a two way zip is a disadvantage during belaying.

Would this be the most similar to the now discontinued Elementalist jacket?

The ROM isn't going to offer as much wind resistance as the Elementalist, as the breathable side panels are much larger. But, it's more similar (in price too) than the next steps up - either the Front Point or Zion Jackets.
