Description

Wear the shell or liner alone, or combine the two and stay warm and dry no matter how nasty the weather gets.

The Men's Sidehill Component Jacket gives you a removable fleece liner jacket inside a weatherproof shell designed for skiing, snowboarding, and everyday winter life. The shell features zip vents to keep you cool and waterproof breathable fabric technology to keep you dry, while the liner jacket uses toasty-warm fleece to insulate you against the cold. Take advantage of the versatility of this 3-in-1 and always be prepared for variable winter weather.

  • Membrain technology uses a waterproof breathable membrane to keep you dry in wet weather
  • Water-resistant PU coating further adds to external fabric weatherproofing
  • Fully taped seams make sure no water seeps through
  • Zip the 200-weight fleece liner in for some added insulation on cold days, or zip the liner out for warm spring skiing
  • Regular cut provides a comfortable fit and leaves room underneath for layering
  • Underarm vents allow you to cool down quickly after a hot hike
  • Powder skirt keeps snow from creeping into your pants on deep days at the ski resort
  • DriClime collar lining feels soft against your neck and chin and provides protection against chilly drafts
  • An array of small accessory pockets provides storage for sunglasses and goggles

Great jacket, warm and stylish

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
  • Fit: Runs large

Got this jacket for my husband for his birthday. It's true that when you raise your arms, the body of the jacket stays put. Arms are a nice length, says my husband who has very long arms. He wears a size large in all of his tops, but the large in this coat was wayyy to big. Looked sloppy. The medium looks great. Sleek, stylish, and warm.

Great quality and fit

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

I'm a slightly slim 5'10, 160lbs and got the medium. Fits perfectly. With a somewhat thick sweatshirt underneath it fits a little snug but not too tight to be uncomfortable or restrict motion. I looked at a few more expensive jackets but glad I decided on this one. Price, fit, features and quality are great.

Bomb Proof Jacket

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

Anyone looking for some serious defense from the elements will be very pleased with this coat. The shell is very substantial and in conjunction with the fleece liner it proves to be a remarkably warm combination. Although the fleece jacket is pretty inconsequential, when paired with the shell it does a great job of insulating. Not sure a thicker fleece would add anything to the mix. The spray skirt is nicely made and the zippers all work easily. There is a nice inside chest pocket in the fleece as well. the military style upper pockets give the coat a great look. The pit zips are a really nice addition to the coat as well. The only downside is that the fleece liner creates a lot friction in the sleeves. It is hard to get this coat on and off. Also there really isn't any extra room in the sleeves for any additional layers. Even a light sweater or microfleece top will be incompatible. About all you can get away with is a long sleeve tee or a button down shirt. The coat would be a lot more user friendly if the fleece sleeves were made of a satin type material. This a pretty serious oversight on Marmot's part considering this a top of the line jacket. And people have been designing outerwear to make it easy to put on and take off like that for decades. The coat would also benefit greatly with the addition of an available zip in vest.

Will any of Marmot's other insulating...

Will any of Marmot's other insulating layers zip into this jacket?

Best Answer Responded on

Even if other Marmot layers don't zip into it (and unfortunately, I'm not sure if they do) you can still wear a different jacket under this shell. Zipping the two pieces together serves no technical purpose, and in my opinion only makes it harder to take the shell off if you are over heating and only want the fleece, or any other combination of the layers.

Love It

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

I currently live in Stillwater, OK, which is not the coldest place in the world (but I am from Dallas, so it feels cold in comparison). That being said, we recently had a decent ice storm, and this jacket was great to have through it.

I really like this jacket. It fits great, which is always tricky for me because I have monkey arms. Unfortunately, that always means going up a size in the chest to get the length I need. (I'm 5'11'' and about 145 lbs) While that is still true with this jacket, the options it has to tighten the bottom on both the fleece and the jacket are excellent.

It looks pretty stylish. My wife approves, which is always a plus. The fleece is super comfortable, but not wind resistant (as expected). The outer shell feels like it could hold up in pretty serious weather; maybe one day I'll try out skiing and find out!

Overall, I really like it. I had a North Face Condor that I'm getting rid of because of this Marmot jacket. I just never loved that one, but this one feels really comfortable and feels just as warm as that did.

I would definitely recommend it.

Great Jacket

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This is a great jacket. I bought the Blue one and I like everything about it: the insulation, the pockets, the zippers under the arms, and the hood because it goes over my helmet. It has more of a modern fit unlike some of the other jackets. I run between a medium and a large and I would say Marmot runs slightly larger.
