Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
The pros: many pockets, and even one on the forearm; Gore-Tex Pro fabric; light weight; helmet compatible hood; armpit vents; sized with enough room to wear over your layers, but not baggy.
The cons: My main disappointment is that the front zipper is not a two way design. This jacket could make one a bit clumsy if used for a technical climb requiring a harness. The new version from Marmot may now incorporate the two way zipper, but this is the discontinued model lacking that feature. I find this surprising for a product at the MSRP of $549.95, but Marmot has always been a little behind with their technical shells compared to Outdoor Research, Mammut, Mountain Hardwear or any of the other major brands for that matter. Stick to Marmot for their sleeping bags, but they need to catch up on their apparel.
I also find the visual aesthetic of the Cerro Torre Jacket to be outdated compared to the other major brands; however, I didn't take off another star for this, because such a characteristic depends, at least consciously, on each individual.
I initially ordered a different jacket (a cool Outdoor Research model), but somehow it actually did not exist in their inventory after my credit card was charged. To compensate the Backcountry staff and I agreed on the Marmot Cerro Torre Jacket to replace the missing OR item. I needed a shell jacket for a glaciated route up Mt. Shasta, but I still had to cancel due the late delivery; however, I appreciate the professionalism and wonderful gesture of the Backcountry staff.
Special Thanks to you all.
