Closeouts. Perfect for active days in cooler weather, Marmot's Threshold II jacket is weather resistant, breathable and warm. The stretch fabric moves as you do, and the DriClime®-lined collar and storm flap draw moisture away from your body.

Pros: looks good, sheds light rain and light wind, sleeves are long
Cons: Sleeves are too tight to wear a long sleeve flannel underneath, terrible for strong wind, collar is uncomfortable (comes up too high when zipped)
For me, this jacket is a mid layer at best, and if that's what you want, why not buy a $40 fleece? It doesn't perform many "shell" functions as it lets wind through and you can't layer under it very well. For these reasons, I'm returning it in favor of something with a windproof membrane.

Having owned other Marmot products, I'm somewhat disappointed with this one. Firstly, its off-sized. The medium jacket is sized larger than a medium and only a littler smaller than a large. The sleeves are definitely too long for a medium. (I'm a 33" sleeve and the sleeves on this jacket at 2 inches longer than comfortable. I think Marmot needs either better design control or better quality control. Don't know which.
Having only worn it on two days, I'm finding the that damp and cold go right through the sleeves. I can't tell about the chest area as I've been wearing a fleece vest. The jacket over a full sweater though was warm and comfortable. (I live in New England and we've had some damp, nasty days recently.)
Otherwise, the jacket seems well made. I was pleasantly surprised to discover 7 " inside pocket which the the North Face Apex Jacket it replaced lacked.
I would definitely suggest trying on the jacket or similar before ordering online.

I think I received a used jacket. There were no tags on it and smelled of cologne. I really wanted this jacket though, so I kept it. It is very warm and is water repellent. I just wish it would have had tags and not smelled of funky cologne.

STP comes through again with this very nice warm and stylish jacket from Marmot! This jacket is super light weight and blocks the wind like crazy. It's just starting to get chilly here in God's country (okay, any one that's ever set foot in Illinois knows that that's a bunch of BS! It was my attempt at humor). But back to the jacket, it's warm and makes a fifty something year old slacker like me look less of a slacker. Thank you Sierra Trading Post!

Great jacket, this is my third Marmot soft-shell. The first wore out after about 8 years, at the cuffs, second was lost. The Team Red is a bit bright for me. They should call it Rescue red. It makes me feel like Ski Patrol. Anyway, the jacket fit perfectly, a Large for 6'1, 170lbs, longish arms are great in the winter, fabric does well in so many conditions, Vermont cold, wind, snow, light rain. It's an essential part of my fall-winter-spring gear.
