Great jacket but way too much velcro!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Janels from Highlands Ranch, CO on Tuesday, July 10, 2012
I love Marmot products, they are extremely well made. This is a great color, and the jacket fits well, and is just the right length. But there is Velcro everywhere! All down the front in addition to along the front zipper, at the sleeves, and even at the pockets--in addition to the zippers! This means that it is hard to even get to the zipper closures because you have to first undo all the Velcro, which tends to re-attach quickly. The Velcro also catches on the interior webbing, which can tear or fray it. They have a good zipper system--there is no reason why all that Velcro is needed--just redundant, and annoying--counter functional. I will probably try to have all but the Velcro on the sleeves removed, because I really like the jacket.
