Marmot ROM

Reviewed by Biji from People's Republic of Vermont on Thursday, January 30, 2014
Proved to be an excellent garment over a medium weight base layer during three days of snowshoeing in the Adirondack High Peaks last week of January. With temps ranging from 0 to +20F, body temperature easily managed with front zipper & hood; Pit zips would be superfluous with the breathable side panels. Construction details provide perfect combination of blocking wind & snow.

Hood might be tight over a helmet, but since I don't wear one the fit was perfect. Only beef is I wish the side pockets were higher, since they wind up under a hip belt. Even so, the Marmot ROM is an outstanding soft shell, and a great bargain at STP's prices.
