Stay out on the mountain in nasty conditions without succumbing to cold, clammy discomfort with the Marmot Men's Headwall Jacket. Specifically designed for light and fast ski tours, long days lapping the resort, and cold-weather climbing missions, the Headwall Jacket features an air-permeable NanoPro MemBrain and Air-exchange breathable lining to facilitate the evaporation of perspiration while simultaneously blocking outside moisture from dampening your core. It's not only fully waterproof (10,000 mm), but more importantly, it's much more breathable (20,000g/m²) than before, with a 140% increase in breathability over Marmot's previous 2.5-layer laminate technology.
Trapping body heat for a pleasantly warm skiing and riding experience, the jacket's PrimaLoft Silver insulation offers low-bulk warmth during sub-freezing winter temperatures. Unlike down insulation, PrimaLoft Silver retains maximum warmth through damp to soaking wet conditions, meaning you'll stay nice and warm, no matter if it's dumping snow or spitting sleet outside. Fully sealed seams prevent outside moisture from seeping through the jacket's tiniest seam cracks, keeping your core nice and dry through widely varying winter conditions. Toss in a variety of convenient storage for a lightweight, waterproof, and incredibly breathable jacket that's super-functional on the mountain.

Excellent insulated shell

Really love this piece, it keeps me warm and dry and looks solid. Great price point, too. As another reviewer noted you can actually fit a football or motorcycle helmet under the hood, which is nice to have that range of use. If you're just rocking a ski helmet though there are cinch cords readily accessible. In addition to the waterproof insulation i was probably even more impressed at how this thing blocked the wind. Love it!

Just tested this jacket today at Sugarloaf in Maine as they got a foot of snow today. Jacket is very warm and breathable. I actually had to shed my fleece layer and just wear a t-shirt because it was so comfortable and the temperature was 10. Also the wind and waterproof abilities can not be understated. Overall great jacket . I did use the hood over my helmet all day and though the hood is big, the draw strings all around the hood help to lock it down.
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: True to size
Really liked everything about the fit and material of this jacket, but the hood is big enough to fit two heads inside it. That was the only drawback, but it is a deal breaker.
Is the hood larger on this jacket larger than the other Marmot jackets that are designed to be worn with a helmet? Is it abnormally larger compared to the other jackets in the Marmot ski jacket family? Thanks
What is the filling weight of the PrimaLoft?
e.g. 60, 80, 100g/m2 etc.
There seems to be no info on the Marmot website.
The Headwall has 60 g Primaloft in the body, sleeves and collar.
