2 Marmot jackets now with stitching defects

Reviewed by Truth-B-Told from Colorado on Monday, May 25, 2015
I bought a 3 season Marmot jacket a few years ago and had to take it back to REI because the stitching completely unraveled right along a seam on the shoulder, after only extremely light use. Now, I just bought this Marmot Optima from STP three days ago and I'm taking it back because I found a pretty bad stitching flaw which made little loops along the seam right below the right pocket. It would only take one good snag on a bush or tree limb to ruin this jacket. Marmot has potential, but I'm done buying $200 to $300 jackets with poor stitching so I'm done buying Marmot Products. I own a 15 Year Old gore-tex North Face jacket, 12 yr old North Face backpack, and a cheap Columbia fleece that is ancient....every zipper works on all 3 items and no stitching problems...nuff said.
