User Review: Marmot Men's Alpinist Jacket
Fabric: Gore Tex 3/2 Layer
Price Paid: $399
Marmot seems to have mastered the engineering and ergonomics to cut this jacket perfectly, at least for my 5'11" 180 lb frame. Adjustments on the hood, collar, and waist lets it fit like a glove, whether I'm wearing it as a shell, with fleece, polarguard, or down.
The abrasion resistant Gore-tex is also tuff stuff. My only criticism is that it only came in yellow and red (a bit too flashy for me).
