    Right on, man!

    You could be skiing sunny May corn snow or leading a group across a glacier on a clear day in Alaska; moderate aerobic activities in cool, not-too-wet places darn-near beg you to enlist the Marmot ROM Men's Softshell Jacket. Marmot made the ROM from a combination of Gore's WindStopper and Marmot's M2 softshells to stop a stiff breeze in its tracks, so you'll stay comfortable when you're working hard without getting sweaty. The hood saves your 'do from whipping winds and provides protection from gentle drizzle, so you can stay looking fly even when you're braving squally spring days out of doors.

    Reaching high above you for a hold or throwing up high fives is easy, thanks to the ROM's Angel-Wing Movement. Zippered hand, chest, and internal pockets won't let your gear come tumbling out when you get inverted on a tough boulder problem, and the hook-and-loop cuffs and elastic drawcord hem make sure drafts stay at arm's length when you're on the trail, wrestling pebbles, or celebrating a successful day with some aggressive cheersing.

    Love this jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I have used mine from 2010-2017 and while my Marmot signs are all worn off and I'm about to put it out to stud, it is the best jacket I've ever owned. It kept me just right in mild weather, and nice and warm in freezing Joshua Tree winter winds.

    Just bought another.

    Incredibly functional

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I've had the ROM for over two years in Western Washington, it gets used every weekend in fall/winter/spring. It's seen 70+ mph winds, short stints in temps down to 0°, holds up to light rain for about 45 minutes, drys reasonably fast, and it even looks good in town.

    This is not a warm jacket, but the wind protection has allowed me to travel with minimal layers (usually just a light base) for extended periods in variable temperatures. Once movement stops, the jacket chills very quickly.

    Disclaimer: my body type runs hot, so I frequently find myself in sub 20°s for some time wearing only the ROM while everyone else in my party has dawned down jackets.

    Otherwise, I love this jacket and will buy another when this one has given up.

    Excellent Spring and Fall Jacket

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

    I never saw the point in softshell jackets because I thought light, Goretex rain gear made them redundant. Now I wear my ROM jacket in wind and light rain, and save my Oracle rain jacket for real precipitation. The ROM is very comfortable, sheds heat (you'll need layers if it's cold,) and seems durable. I don't worry about it de-laminating as even nice rain gear does over time with use.

    Perfection

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    I just got this jacket so I cant remark on the wind/rain resistance, but, everything else is perfect! Iv been looking for a good raincoat that fits, and Iv looked at REI, NorthFace, Mammut, and seemingly every department store. I am petite, but I have long(for my size) arms, and its extremely hard to find things that fit without being too tight, or too baggy and make me look like a dwarf. After several returns, THIS is the jacket Im sticking with.
    Thank you Marmot and BackCountry!

    Marmot ROM softshell--poor fit

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Size Bought: M and L

    I bought this for a lightweight softshell to replace my old Marmot Kingpin. I ordered both a M and L, and neither fit. The "Angel Wing" arms were nonexistent--with raising arms (as in climbing) both sizes pull the hem up. The L was baggy, the M was a nice fit except for the arms. The pocket zips are low on the garment precluding access with a harness. I'll keep using my Kingpin (which has longer arms and higher pockets, and underarm zips) and wait for a better fit among other brands (e.g. Rab fits well).

    Not warm, but STYLIN!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: medium

    So I bought this jacket thinking it's all I need during the winter. (gosh I'm an idiot). Turns out I ended up buying several downs jackets instead but I still love this jacket. Now that it is spring, I wear this to work every morning, as well as when I'm outside on my bike at night. It's a great look!

    Don't buy this jacket to keep you warm..

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

    Buy it to look fantastic! The jacket fits me perfectly. I have an athletic build and it seems to be tailored for me. It helps that the material stretches in the right places. The other day I made the mistake of wearing it without a mid-layer at freezing temperatures, so I wear it now with a HH base-layer and long sleeve Icebreaker merino wool shirt. This combo seems to work well around town with the temps around the 30's in Seattle.

    Some thoughts:
    -The hood is very small. I doubt you can fit a helmet of any kind under it.
    -I have short arms and it fits me.
    -The material is thin; I recommend wearing non-bulky base and mid layers.
    -I don't think this is a good choice for a packable jacket. Although, it is thin, it doesn't seem to compress very well.

    Great spring & fall jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    40.5" chest, 33" waist. I got this to replace an old North Face McKinley that's seen better days. I've worn the ROM maybe 10 times, and it's been great. I wear a 34 dress shirt, and the sleeves stop right above my thumbs. It's not lined at all which gives it a wider temp range. Spring and fall in Boston usually means lots of wind and large temperature swings and this has kept me warm without overheating. It looks good with a polo or button-down on the way to the office, and has enough room for a fleece underneath at night. I'll probably wear it bike commuting in the winter and for some spring skiing next year.

    Update: I've had this for a while, and it's holding up really well. It's been from the spring streets of Boston to the high-altitude cities in Peru where a possum chewed through a pocket. Marmot fixed that for $30, which was nice. I was really hoping this would work for winter bike commuting, but I run too hot. If there were pit zips, it'd be awesome, but no cigar. I like the jacket, but wouldn't buy it again given the price.

    A classic softshell for mild weather

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Light weight, breathable, windstopper and keep you warm. I have used it during my SLC ice climbing in nearly freezing temperature and climbed Mt Rainier with it in late Aug. Performed pretty well as a softshell jacket. Wish it could be a little more water resistant but I know I can't ask too much of this from a softshell jacket. I have a black one but I wish I have bought some shining color. All three pockets are great for cellphone or handing warming. Doesn't come with a two way zip is a disadvantage during belaying.
