Wind can ruffle your feathers, but it won't blow you into a tizzy when you're wearing the Marmot Women's ROM Softshell Jacket. Marmot made the soft and stretchy shell from a combination of Gore-Tex's WindStopper shell material and Marmot's M2 softshell to stop a stiff breeze in its tracks, so you'll stay comfortable whether you're bouldering, hiking, or walking across campus on an impossibly beautiful but breezy and brisk spring day. The hood offers a hit of coif protection from either the wind or gentle drizzle, so you can stay looking fly even when you're braving squally spring days.
Reaching high above you for a hold or turning cartwheels across the quad is effortless due to the built-in stretch and articulation of the ROM's Angel-Wing Movement. Zippered hand, chest, and internal pockets won't let your gear come tumbling out when you get upside down, and the hook-and-loop cuffs and elastic drawcord hem make sure drafts stay at arm's length when you're on the trail, wrestling pebbles, or heading across campus to an end-of-semester shindig.

Comfortable and Great Fit
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Small
This jacket was a gift for my girlfriend who says:
"This is the perfect softshell. The women's specific fit is great, and it works well as a layer. It is a good mid-weight for a softshell and I am loving it so far"
Purchased for XC Skiing...Perfect!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I used this jacket for cross country skiing this winter. I tried on both a small and a medium. If you plan to use for skiing (wearing base layer + medium weight fleece), I recommend sizing up. For general wear, it seems true to size. This jacket performed well. I wasn't too cold or too hot while skiing, and the hood fits well over a knit hat for those snowy outings.
