6"2', 148Ib expert skier. 177 or 186? I have the stoke in the 178 and love it but am thinking of going longer with these. Suggestions?
I am 6' 2" 150, thin like you guys and the Medium fits me perfectly. There is enough room for medium weight layers - piton hybrid or ultralight down pullover. This piece is simply amazing. I have worn it mostly backcountry skiing but it is light enough to bring alpine rock climbing. It breathes very well for the skin up.
Can't decide on the ultralight or the alpinlight. I am skinny - 6-2 150 pounds and am worried the girth of the alpinlight might be too much. However the extra room may be nice for layering and room to move around. Any suggestions?
It does not. My Marmot Driclime weighs 13oz and my Patagonia alpine wind jacket weighs 10.5oz. You must be comparing the weight of the Marmot Ion to the Patagonia alpine wind jacket and they are totally different jackets. The Patagonia Houdini is similar to the Ion and is lighter at 3.7oz. Both Patagonia jackets are far superior than there Marmot counterparts.
