Harvey's Bio

I climb anywhere and anything that I can. My main areas are Oklahoma and Arkansas but Colorado is probably my favorite place in the world right now. My goal is to climb in every state in the US.

The fleece is decent quality and the shell is completely waterproof. It'll keep you warm on cold days and dry on wet ones. If you want one jacket for multiple purposes, this is a great one. The fleece zips out so that you can use the fleece and shell individually, which is usually how I go. It easily zips back in for a single, connected jacket.

The downside is the weight, if you'll be doing any backpacking or other activities where weight is an issue. It doesn't pack down small and it's on the heavy side of things.

The Marmot Ridgetop is the jack of all trades, but master of none. It's not the best fleece on the market, or the best shell. It does however perform great under a variety of conditions and is a solid piece to add to your collection. It is VERY durable too.

I have since moved on to more specialized pieces of gear to better suit my needs. Having said that, I would recommend this jacket to anyone who needs a solid multi-use jacket.

Side note: The shell shares the same size zipper as my Mountain Hardwear Monkey Man fleece. I can zip it into the shell for a pretty amazing fleece / shell combination. The only downside is that the monkey man doesn't have the small loops on the sleeves to hold them in place. The only time this really plays a factor is when putting on or taking off the jacket.

I finally traded up to the Arc'teryx R320 and I'll never go back. So comfy that I often forget that I have it on. I can't tell you how many days I've walked back to the car after a day of cragging, only to realize that I never took it off. Nice to hang in and when you're buddy is hanging on his project for 30 minutes, the belay is still pretty comfortable.

I have a size 30 waist and I went with a medium. It fits good with the waist cinched up fully. I could have easily gone with a small though. (only difference really would be no dangling webbing which I tuck out of the way anyways.)
