I was worried about the fit from some of the other reviews, but I dig it. I'm 6' and 168 lbs. and I went with a medium just like all my other pieces. I'm not planning on layering much with it but I can get a NTS layer and a power stretch 100 weight fleece or my atom lt jacket under just fine. The weight is fine and it's low bulk packs well and with it being the power shield fabric you know it's going to hold it's own in various condition. I love the look, style, high collar, big functional hood, and seam patterning. Only thing negative at this moment is the draw cord in the hem...... kinda weak and not as elastic as others.

This is my favorite piece of gear! I find the fit to be perfect (6'0 165 lbs) medium is the size for me. anything outside from hiking, skiing, cycling, urban, climbing, and layering. This jacket is the way to go plus I've received more complements than any other piece of tech gear that I own..... The ladies love it. Sheds drizzle well and stands up to a light breeze with no problem. Range of motion is awesome and plenty of storage space with the four pockets. It breath and wicks moisture very well when the blood is pumping. I highly recommend this piece!

Great piece to be used in the mountains or around town. The fit is great with an athletic style, and I like the long back and shorter waist. Great mobility for climbing, hiking, and I've used it on commutes on my road bike. I've worn it in some steady downpours with it keeping me dry. The weather resistance is sweet..... It sheds rain like a champ. Windy days are no problem at all just as long as the temp not to cold. Breaths well when your putting out some hard efforts. Another great tech piece from Arcteryx.

This is my first winter hiking,backpacking,and skiing and I wanted a pair of pants that were going to the trick for these activities.So I ended up buying the Exum pants and they have worked very well for me so far.They are waterproof,lightweight,breath well,and they fit very well.I'm 5'11" and 155 pounds and the medium fits great(all my Marmot gear I wear a medium.)I love the built in gaiters for hikes in the snow and on powder ski days.The leg cuffs are sweet cause it dosn't allow the lower pant leg bunch up when there over the top of your ski boot.All in all i dig the Exum pants.

rainy hike in the Angeles

I hike and ski in Southern California all the time,and this jacket has worked very well for me.It will keep you dry and warm.I love how light it is and also how well it breaths.It will give you full protection from the elements.The hood is fully functional and gives you great cover.I was recently in San Francisco during a heavy storm and sported the Exum in the city.It just shows the versatility of the jacket.I'am totally in love with this jacket!Buy one you wont be sorry.

im not sure what the weight is but there not very heavy.the suspenders do not come off the pants,but i actually like having them.they serve there purpose on keeping your pants where you want them when your in the feild hiking or skiing.the trim adjusters allow you to cuff or fold the bottom section of the legs to keep them from bunching up.the waist can be adjusted with the velcro straps on the sides of the waist where the full zip meets the waist.

this jacket has been a perfect shell for hiking and backpacking to warm weather skiing in So. Cal. fully waterproof and it breaths well. its a lilttle big in the fit but it allows plently of room to layer up on colder adventures. in my opinion marmot has the highest quality in there outdoor performance gear.
