Awesome Shell

Reviewed by SJRoss from Reading, PA. on Friday, January 9, 2015
My last Marmot jacket lasted me ten years and it was time for an upgrade, with 35% off I couldn't beat this deal. I'm 5'10" 170lbs 34" waist, the large was a perfect fit. Medium was a little tight around the waist. This jacket is burly, I can easily see this shell lasting me as long as my old Marmot ski jacket. I bought the Freerider pants as well, it's a great set up. Great features and far more simple than my last jacket, which cuts doubt on the bulk. It fits loose, especially the pants (in the legs, not the waist) but that is what I was looking for. I have not had it for very long, but I have been impressed with its performance on very windy days, in 20-30F temp, wearing it over a t-shirt and Marmot Norheim fleece. Kept me very warm. Only gripe, no designated media pocket, but the inside pocket functions well enough as one.
