Prepare for the worst.
Don't let a hatefully cold day keep you from hitting the slopes. Zip up the Marmot Shadow Men's Jacket and enjoy a technical design capable of crushing frigid lift rides at your local resort to high-altitude romps in far-away lands. Marmot's MemBrain waterproof breathable laminate and the Shadow's 700-fill down insulation combine to keep you dry and warm without causing sweat to turn your layers soggy, and the zippered underarm vents also make sure you stay comfortable if the sun makes an unexpected appearance.
To facilitate the more technical sections of your bootpacks and alpine climbs, Marmot added Angel-Wing movement, so the act of lifting your arms over your head to reach for a handhold or celebrate a sick line won't make the whole jacket ride up. A zip-off hood and powder skirt keep your brain warm and functional and your pants free from snow, respectively, and the Guardian nylon reinforcements at the shoulders and sleeves provide extra water protection won't get shredded when you're mobbing through tight trees.

I am a huge Marmot fan and was excited about receiving this jacket. However, upon wearing it on a cold NYC night I have to state here for the record that I was not warm! And the Velcro on the cuffs are a major headache so I don't like this jacket at all because the Velcro on the cuffs is not secured and the jacket isn't warm!!! I will purchase the Marmot Hooded Guides Down next time
Marmot = Quality
The Marmot Shadow jacket is a great down jacket for the coldest winter days. The down is warm and full but not bulky, no Michelin Man look here. I bust this down jacket out for the coldest days when I know I may get stuck on the lift with the wind chill at -10. Great buy I love this jacket.
I'm 5'-8",140LB with a 35" chest, 32" sleeve, which size shall i choose? Many thanks...
Is the waist gator removable? Also I read a review that the media pocket is really small and would only accommodate an I-pod nano and not an I-phone? What model year is this jacket? Any idea if this jacket runs large or is consider a wider or slimmer cut? I'm 6'-3", 175LB with a 32-33 inseam; attempting to decide between and M or L. Many thanks
Hi Eric.. no idea about your other questions, but I can tell you that my husband tried this coat on in REI and he's 6'1 200 lbs - normally wears a L tall in shirts and he felt like he needed an XL in the jacket.. so if you were trying to decide btwn two sizes, I'd size up
I can let you know about the pocket in a little bit.. I'm expecting this jacket to arrive any minute via delivery.
ok so I have the jacket - waist gator.. if it's that scrunchy thing on the inside (like my technical terms?) is not removable. I can fit my iphone comfortably into all pockets that exist on the jacket, and the tag says it's a "regular" cut jacket.
Can't help you with the year/season.
