Really nice looking and functional for use as a ski jacket but the chest fit was just a little too snug with a fleece vest beneath the jacket. I'm 240 lbs and 6'2" with a 48" chest and ordered the XXL. My other Marker ski jacket fits great with lots of room for layering.

I really enjoy this jacket, but the first one I ordered was a large...it was to big. I returned it and got a smaller jacket in a different color because they were out of the blue in the medium. All in all, I'm very happy with the jacket.

To be used as a ski parka. Coat is long enough in back to protect backside while riding chair lifts. Lots of pockets to allow personal gear. I see a number of "Marker" ski parkas on the slopes. Only improvement I'd suggest is a to make basic jacket slightly more like a shell and provide a zip-in/snap-in synthetic liner like many other ski parka manufacturers do.

I bought this jacket to fill the gap between a shell and an insulated jacket. It is light weight and 5K waterproof/5K breatehable, which is fine for resort skiing. Probably not breathable enough, even with the pit zips, for longer hikes. The XL size fits my 6'4" 210 lb frame really well. The sleaves are long enough and the jacket is really long, which I like. Worn 6 days so far with absolutly no complaints. Got the blue color.
