    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.

    • Breathable side panels
    • Angel-Wing movement
    • Adjustable hood
    • Internal zip pocket

    Excellent Spring and Fall Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    I never saw the point in softshell jackets because I thought light, Goretex rain gear made them redundant. Now I wear my ROM jacket in wind and light rain, and save my Oracle rain jacket for real precipitation. The ROM is very comfortable, sheds heat (you'll need layers if it's cold,) and seems durable. I don't worry about it de-laminating as even nice rain gear does over time with use.

    Perfection

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    I just got this jacket so I cant remark on the wind/rain resistance, but, everything else is perfect! Iv been looking for a good raincoat that fits, and Iv looked at REI, NorthFace, Mammut, and seemingly every department store. I am petite, but I have long(for my size) arms, and its extremely hard to find things that fit without being too tight, or too baggy and make me look like a dwarf. After several returns, THIS is the jacket Im sticking with.
    Thank you Marmot and BackCountry!

    Marmot ROM softshell--poor fit

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Size Bought: M and L

    I bought this for a lightweight softshell to replace my old Marmot Kingpin. I ordered both a M and L, and neither fit. The "Angel Wing" arms were nonexistent--with raising arms (as in climbing) both sizes pull the hem up. The L was baggy, the M was a nice fit except for the arms. The pocket zips are low on the garment precluding access with a harness. I'll keep using my Kingpin (which has longer arms and higher pockets, and underarm zips) and wait for a better fit among other brands (e.g. Rab fits well).

    Not warm, but STYLIN!

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

    So I bought this jacket thinking it's all I need during the winter. (gosh I'm an idiot). Turns out I ended up buying several downs jackets instead but I still love this jacket. Now that it is spring, I wear this to work every morning, as well as when I'm outside on my bike at night. It's a great look!

    Don't buy this jacket to keep you warm..

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    Buy it to look fantastic! The jacket fits me perfectly. I have an athletic build and it seems to be tailored for me. It helps that the material stretches in the right places. The other day I made the mistake of wearing it without a mid-layer at freezing temperatures, so I wear it now with a HH base-layer and long sleeve Icebreaker merino wool shirt. This combo seems to work well around town with the temps around the 30's in Seattle.

    Some thoughts:
    -The hood is very small. I doubt you can fit a helmet of any kind under it.
    -I have short arms and it fits me.
    -The material is thin; I recommend wearing non-bulky base and mid layers.
    -I don't think this is a good choice for a packable jacket. Although, it is thin, it doesn't seem to compress very well.

    Great spring & fall jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 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.

    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.

    A classic softshell for mild weather

    Ok so I recently bought the patagonia hooded down sweater and am looking for a softshell to throw on over it for extra wind and water protection...Im mostly wanting it if it gets a little too cold in my down jacket alone or If I run into some light rain or flurries...also to climb in as a standalone without my down jacket on. And I think I'm torn between this and the patagonia levitation hoody

    Trevor,



    This Marmot jacket is going to cut the wind a little better than the Patagonia and be slightly more water resistant. That being said, the Patagonia will still keep you toasty when layered with your down sweater and will be much better when you are wearing a harness. Plus, using the same brand together can create better compatibility. I'd say go with the Levitation hoody.

    Does the hood fit over
    a climbing helmet?

    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!

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