Description

As tough and weatherproof as you so you can get after it on the best storm days.

Equipped with the toughest Gore-Tex shell ever created, your Marmot Silverton Jacket helps you charge through the roughest weather without losing focus on the climb or shrinking your powder-blasted smile. The guaranteed waterproof, windproof, and breathable Gore-Tex Pro Shell features an incredibly durable nylon ripstop outer shell with a membrane bonded directly to the shell's underside. An inner lining protects it all from wear throughout your whole season of working and playing in the mountains.
  • Fully taped seams mean no dripping chairs or melting snow will find its way through to your under layers
  • Zip-off, adjustable helmet-friendly hood features a laminated brim to keep it from flapping in the wind
  • Underarm water-resistant zippers come in handy during hikes and hot rides in the tram
  • The zip-off powder skirt includes gripper elastic to keep it in place and guard your under layers from deep, fluffy snow
  • Asymmetrical cuffs with hook-and-loop closures fit under gloves and further block out the deep, billowing snow
  • DriClime-lined collar feels smooth and increases warmth during super-storms
  • Water-resistant hand, chest, and sleeve pocket zippers let you get to your stuff without allowing vulnerabilities when closed
  • An internal mesh pocket holds goggles or gloves during hikes or happy hour sessions at the base

Posted on

The shell I currently wear is a 3 layer(not Gore-Tex), and I noticed that after the face fabric gets saturated with water, the inside starts to feel damp and clammy against the skin, similar to what happens with 2 and 2.5 layer fabrics. So I was wondering if anyone who has had experience Gore-Tex Pro would know it has this issue as well or not?

Hey Andy,

2 or 3 Layer construction doesn't effect how it performs as far as waterproofness or breathability, rather its about how it will feel against your skin. It sounds like what is actually happening is that the face fabric is getting dirty and water is pooling. If enough water pools on the face fabric then your sweat cannot evaporate through the membrane of your jacket and you will have moisture buildup against your skin. I suggest checking the washing guide on your garments and freshening them up or maybe applying a little Nikwax to zap your gear back to life.

marmot durability? worthless warranty.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I am on my second Marmot ski jacket, a Goretex Performance model a couple years back, and I question the quality and durability. In about 140 days, I have 4 jackets but the Marmot was the day to day shell, the color completely faded, high wear areas were worn through to the white waterproofing laminate, and all the velcro closures, which are critical to weather proofing, were shot. When I spoke to Marmot, I got a defensive, aggressive, rude woman who insisted that I had worn it out, period, and there was nothing they could do except replace some velcro. I said I wouldn't have worn it out so quickly if it was made more durably. the there we were, round and round. My conclusion: Marmot is nothing special any more, and the warrantee, supposedly lifetime, is worthless.

I'm sorry for the negative experience that you had with Marmot's warranty team. I've generally had very positive interactions with them on products that I've used.

If you purchased the jacket from us, I would be happy to look into a possible return or exchange for you. You can contact me via the Live Chat option - just chat in and ask for Andrew M. and I'd be happy to help you out.

thanks Andrew, I spoke with them at length, and they felt that things had simply worn out. I can not for the life of me understand the distinction between failure over time, 2 seasons, or a manufacturing flaw failure that would be covered by warranty. dye color, edges fraying, hook and loop failure are all poor designs due to the fact that they fail over time. I'm puzzled.

Really wanted to love this jacket...

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I really wanted to love this jacket from what I could find out about it online, but I ended up returning it after getting my hands on one.

First off, the pros:

- great look and color options
- bomber fabric that you would expect from Pro Shell
- lightweight, basically unlined protection

And now for the cons, which ended up with me returning the jacket:

- arms were too short for me - I'm 6'1", 205lbs, and tried an XL - the fit was trim and athletic, but the sleeves could use an extra 1-2"
- powder skirt doesn't have any way to attach to ski pants to keep it from riding up (many other brands have loops with snaps to connect the two)
- hood was not at all ski helmet compatible; would probably work with lower profile climbing helmets, but no dice with my brain bucket of choice
- the waterproof zippers used for the pockets are STIFF! it always took me two hands to open a pocket all the way


Overall, this struck me as a really nice jacket, but the fit was off for me and I'd like to see some of the features tweaked for a ski-specific jacket at this price point. Could be a great multi-purpose winter jacket for climbing, skiing, snowshoeing, etc., if it fits you right, but I'm looking elsewhere

Responded on

This jacket has a snug athletic fit. A medium should work for you as long as you're not barrel-chested or layering heavily under it. However, they only seem to have one in stock and that's an XL

Hello
I dont know which size to choose. I am 1,70 cm tall and weigh about a 175 pounds. What would be my size?

At 5'7" 175 lbs. I'd go for a medium, that way you'll have some room to layer.

Small or medium? I'm 5'6 155lbs ( 39' chest)with an athletic build. I'm looking for a bomber shell for alpine touring and resort riding, so room for layering is a must, but not so much that the extra material will be a parachute or tree snag. Suggestions?

Responded on

This jacket is pretty fitted, so I'd go with the medium to layer. I have a 41" chest and wear a L in Marmot gear, so small might be a little too tight for you.
