User Review: Marmot Alpinist II Jacket
Fabric: 3ply Gore-tex
Price Paid: $379
Marmot has really hit it on the head with this one. The jacket has every feature you could want: five pockets, five-way adjustable hood, waterproof pit zips (no need for velcro anymore), elastic and velcro cuffs. And the fit is spectacular! I do some pretty serious backpacking and have abused this jacket for a year, all seasons. I shopped long and hard for the right jacket...this is it. The quality of the construction is the best I have seen. I have been treated well by this jacket, and that is what counts; Not that it has a TNF logo on it or whether it looks good on the slope. Highly recommended for anyone who only wants to have to buy a Gore-Tex jacket Once.
