For skiers who work up a sweat.
Bust out the map and plan the skin-track ascent with your partner. Then grab your Men's Up Track Softshell Jacket and go. Marmot engineered this jacket for high aerobic activities in dry winter conditions and gave it a fit focused on ultimate mobility. M3 softshell material helps blocks wind, resists light moisture, and breathes like a champ so you'll stay comfortable during your dawn patrol charge into the hills.
- M3 Softshell material has four-way stretch and is the most breathable of Marmot's softshell fabrics
- Shell fabric is water-resistant and wind-resistant for protection from the elements
- Angel-Wing Movement frees the sleeves so you have full range of motion in the arms and shoulders
- Attached hood has peripheral cord adjustment so you can cinch it down for extra protection
- Pack Pockets are large and able to fit gloves, goggles, or any other small to mid-size gear essentials
- Interior mesh pocket holds your touring skins where they won't freeze solid while you ski down from the summit
- DriClime-lined chin guard feels soft against your face and reduces chafing
- Adjustable cuffs and drawcord hem dial in the fit

Wierd question... Can anyone confirm if the "red" colored uptrack that is on department of goods(what I assume is last years model) has a brushed fleece lining? I have the uptrack from a few years ago which I absolutely love. However, the zippers broke and so I ordered this years model (in the blue if anyone cares) but its now unlined. The model I have from a few years ago has a fleece lining in it and I'm really am after the same jacket (i.e. with the brushed fleece liner). But I was hoping someone could confirm that last years model does have the brushed fleece liner before I pay to return for the other 1.

I've put this jacket through its paces and I am happy with the performance. It breathes very well. Material is very stretchy. It does have a fleece interior that adds some warmth. Works great as a touring or hiking jacket. It does let some wind through (not windproof), but that works well for me because sweat is evaporated quickly. It is a true softshell (no membrane of any kind). Repels light rain/snow, but does wet out after prolonged rain. Bottom line, does what I want it to do in a softshell.
Behaves similar to fleeces

This softshell is nicely cut and fits well. The air permeability and significant fleece on the inside however, means it ends up being a bit of a oddball in my jacket quiver. The thickness of the fleece means the jacket ends up being too warm to use actively unless it's cold (duh, it's for skiing), but the permeability also means the jacket's temp range becomes compromised pretty rapidly by medium winds. This means for active use, I'm typically going for an un-insulated softshell like the marmot tempo or a more wind resistant shell like the patagonia hooded guide instead if conditions are more severe. The coat would be a good choice for bc skiing in calm conditions, with a hard shell as backup if the conditions get nasty.
Where this jacket works best for me as as a travel coat as I go back and forth from the northeast to california. When not active, you can wear it comfortably in 70f and then it takes the edge off transitioning around to outdoors, pacific coast winds and cold cars. Plus it looks pretty sharp and fits reasonably slim as well. Put it on and forget about it.
