The versatile Variant for all your cold-weather needs.

The Marmot Men's Variant Insulated Jacket makes an excellent midlayer whether you're skiing, ice climbing, or hanging in the alpine. Polartec's abrasion-resistant Power Stretch fabric gives the sides and sleeves a four-way stretch that retains its original shape over time, and Thermal R insulates the core in a lightweight and bulk-free fashion. The Variant sports an athletic fit for easy layering, and thumbholes and an elasticized hem keep the cold drafts out.

Long enough for tall folks

    Size Purchased: Large

I normally have to rely on Eddie Bauer for my clothes because they have Tall specific sizing. However, I needed a jacket like this one for skate skiing and couldn't find anything that would work in a tall. Luckily, Marmot has sleeves long enough and the body fits great too. This is a great jacket for any high intensity cold weather activity.

Are the hand pockets on this jacket harness-compatible? AKA higher up than normal pockets on non-technical apparel?

I've been using one of these for years as a midlayer/insulator while active on alpine climbs and for chilling around campsite in milder conditions. Not the best insulator when it gets colder than freezing but still very versatile. Very light weight and keeps warm when wet. The thumbholes are nice for keeping your hands a bit warmer when your gloves are soaked and its cold.
