Blocks wind incredibly well, I'm not sure how since it balls up smaller than a t-shirt, and easily fits in my water bottle side pouch on backpack. I am a boat captain and I wear this pretty much year round, in summer over a t-shirt in light rain it works better than heavy hot foul weather gear. In winter and side seasons over fleeced or base layers as needed. The hood design is perfect and allows movement and vision and Rom. Control lines in bottom and hood are well designed. Breast pocket / storage pouch are great. I did loose a logo decall or 2 they flaked off.
Problem is...zipper broke. That's why 3 stars. Disappointed as this is something I'd wanted to last as long as my Patag and other marmot gear. The long male tab on bottom zipper simply chipped away now it comes apart from the bottom. I'm hoping to get some restitution from Marmot.
Possibly, the new generation of this jacket has a needed beefed up zipper. I don't think mine was mistreated, just used in a way one wears active gear. The rest of the jacket is like new, hopeful it can be repaired it's a shame to only last 1 year.
Fit is slim but fairly true to size. I have Good range of motion in chest and arms, arms arent too tight or short. Fits snug in lower torso though.
I went on the Marmot website and easily started the process to ship the jacket back for repair or replacement. 4 to 6 weeks turn around. Hopefully they have more durable zipper to add, and it will last me as long as my other Marmot gear.
Marmot gave me an $85 dollar credit, but I have yo get it from their site. Credit does not expire, but they are out of this style in my size.
