    Howling snowstorms, wind-blasted summits, and extreme winter conditions have nothing on the bombproof construction, moisture-shedding ability, and breathable performance of the Marmot Men's Alpinist Jacket. This top-shelf shell represents Marmot's 40-plus years of design expertise in creating outerwear to excel in the planet's gnarliest environments.

    It sports top-of-the-line three-layer Gore-Tex Pro fabric for exceptional waterproofing and breathability, a lightweight feel, and bombproof durability. Counted on by professional mountain guides and hardcore backcountry enthusiasts, Gore-Tex Pro offers the most reliable protection available from the worst weather winter has to offer. It's backed up by fully taped seams to prevent any moisture from seeping in through the cracks.

    But this jacket's much more than just its fabric. Its helmet-compatible hood has a laminated wire brim that shields your face from howling winds and driving snow while still allowing you to see clearly. The DriClime-lined chin guard pulls moisture away from your face when you're perspiring and breathing heavily, helping you feel more comfortable and less clammy. Underarm vents open up to release built-up heat and perspiration from intense skiing or climbing. Napoleon chest pockets stash your must-have items, and the waistbelt-friendly Pack Pockets offer easy-access to accessories when you're carrying a backcountry pack. In addition, the jacket's Angel-Wing Movement and athletic fit grant you full mobility for skiing, riding, and climbing.

    One of the Best

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: medium

    I use this jacket primarily for splitboarding and backpacking in Tahoe. Amazingly versatile. Weather proof and breaths very well. I bought the large first and returned for a medium. I like to layer thin pieces instead of larger bulky layers. I am a very athletic cut and the Medium works perfect even in sub freezing temps with layering. If I were to need heavier layering, Id possibly prefer a large but in all the situations Ive been in the Medium has fit great and has nice trim lines. Pocket design is perfect with lots of options and I love the high neck zip which can almost cover my whole face with goggles on if needed.

    Marmot really crushed it with the features on this jacket and it is the best shell I have ever owned in 25 years of gear geeking.

    One of the Best

    Love pocket configuration

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    The pocket configuration is what sold me on this jacket. Two options for your cell phone in the chest area -- when I use an avalanche beacon I can have my phone on the other side which is ideal. Aside from that this is the standard high-end ski jacket, which is to say it has what you need.

    My New LT Relationship

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: XL

    Was looking for my next long term ski jacket for all conditions as my 20 year old Patagonia shell was stolen/lost (I'm not sure exactly what happened to it). I shopped a lot online and narrowed it down to this one and another from ArcT. Ordered both and they were very similar except I liked the hand warmer pockets (the other didn't have them) and I also liked that you can hide your face in the top to get out of the wind-the other jacket, the top is right against your face tight when it's all zipped up. Hood is great and fits a helmet well. I've skied 5 days in it and have no complaints at all. I'm sure the Gore Tex Pro will do well in the snow, but I haven't skied it in anything heavy yet. Great value too.

    Great shell but...

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Size Bought: Large

    Outstanding shell and I was really looking forward to wearing it. Unfortunately, it's a bit tight in the armpit area. I'm 6', 195, and ordered a size large. I have an Arcteryx Rush shell in large that just fits me better. I still really like Marmot product, though.

    Love this shell!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Latge

    I ordered a large. I'm 6' 173. Fits great with two or three base layers. Love the helmet hood. Skied some very cold and windy days this year on the east coast. The hood really helps to hold in the body heat. I had some reservations at first as I prefer the hood to be detachable (which it's not). However, I never noticed it unless I was using it. Highly recommend this coat. Marmot makes great products! BTW, the customer service at Backcountry is second to none. Keep up the great work guys!

    Best All Around Hardshell Ever Made!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small

    Can't believe I'm the first to review this coat. May I say, it's a pleasure. After a two month process of buying and returning coats to Backcountry (which they were amazing in helping with) I landed on this coat. I triple dog dare you to buy the theta SVX (arc'teryx most expensive and highest quality waterproof jacket) and compare it to this jacket.

    I personally was between the Arc'teryx Theta AR for it's trim fit in the waist and high waterproof durability. But after putting on this piece, it just makes Arc'teryx look reallyyyy bad. Marmot puts on a show with an absurd amount of additional features and pockets that it really made me upset to see how lazy Arc' was in comparison to the offerings on this coat... for the same price.

    This jacket has everything one could desire. Let's start with the 70D Gore Tex Pro outer material (not listed, and yes I personally called Marmot to find out, because when I buy something, I buy the best something), that's only 10D below the Theta SVX, and then you start looking at the removable powder skirt (which is amazing to be able to snowboard, and then zip it off and crush the streets of NYC in the rain), the plethora of pockets, the zipper grabs (Arc usese a little BS piece of rope tied together where Marmot has plastic pulls which are much better), the interior pockets, the zipper stows.
    Few Cons with this coat: One thing I didn't love about the alpinist was the wrist velcro closure, it's very small and isnt as well conceived as the rest of the coat. If closed tightly extra material will stick up a bit. The stitching is better on the AR considering arc prides themselves on the amount of stitches per inch, which is a clear difference but doesn't make up for the other problems. Lastly the weight. This coat is a pound plus, so if you're only using it to climb mountains then you might want to favor the AR. But for all around use, it's still a light jacket and crushes everything Arc'teryx offers. I honestly think this is HANDS DOWN THE BEST ALL AROUND HARDSHELL JACKET on the market. If you don't think so please feel free to share a better coat for the price / features.
    I have a buzz lightyear build with big arms, shoulders and chest, and a small waist.
    In comparison to Arcteryx theta AR fit.
    A medium in the Theta AR = Large in Marmot Alpinist. The alpinist is also an inch or so longer without being constrictive, which I love.
    I would consider this a more tailored fit especially after trying on Arc' beta and many other coats.

    This is the Winter 2015/2016 Alpinist, right? I thought this year it was coming with a (removable) powder skirt?
