User Review: Marmot Men's Alpinist Jacket
Price Paid: $210
Great jacket. Very heavy and tough. I also purchased a Thunderlight jacket to ski, run and mountain bike in. The Alpinist is a lot of jacket to ski with but should be just right for cold/wet winter hiking in the south. Marmot jackets fit well and seem to be made very well. Thanks to this page I found out that Marmot jackets run large; therefore I was able to buy an XL and still have lots of room underneath to layer.
Found Alpinist jacket and Marmot Thunderlight jacket at overstock.com. Alpinist is from last year's catalog, and the Thunderlight is from a catalog two years old. Both new and in original wrapper with full Marmot warranty. I checked with the company. I was looking for a couple of TNF jackets to replace my 12-year-old leaking TNF ski jacket. Upon checking with TNF I found that they will not warranty a jacket purchased at a discounter or even one of their outlet stores. That is too bad.
Both jackets cost me less than $370. I am pleased.
