Great jacket, though delaminating after 6-7 years

Reviewed by Harlingford from Boston on Sunday, December 21, 2014
This is one of my favorite pieces of clothing ever. I wear it year-round in Boston. Perfect as a rain jacket but I also wear it as my main jacket in the winter, layered with a poly base and a fleece quarter-zip. Very light-weight and breathable. The medium fits me perfectly (5'11', 160, 41" chest) with no binding of restriction of arm movement. The medium seems cut a little bigger in the chest and arms than typical mediums in other brands. After 6-7 years (can't remember exactly when I bought it), in the last year it has been delaminating like crazy, shedding big flakes of the inner layer, and some of the seam tapes are coming loose. Still, it has given me such great service I can't really complain, and I'm going to buy a new one. I doubt that Marmot has a life-time guarantee on this material the way Goretex does, but then you cannot buy a Goretex jacket at this price.
