Layton H.wrote a review of Marmot Vertical Softshell Jacket - Men's on March 7, 2012
I bought this on sale for $192 after losing another Marmot soft shell that I bought on sale for $70. The fit of the Vertical isn't as good- it's baggier, which might help with layering for colder days, but I don't find that the jacket itself is any warmer than the cheaper model I had before.
Additionally, the arms are abnormally long. I wear 34/35s on my shirts and while that is what is advertised as the arm length on the mediums, the sleeves cover my thumbs. I would estimate they are actually 37". I have to pull my sleeves up first if I want to use my hands.
All that said, the jacket looks good and is sufficiently warm for some nice days on the slopes, I just think it is too expensive for what you get.
