Pros

  • Very lightweight
  • Eco R synthetic insulation similar to Primaloft
  • Highly compressible

Cons

  • Shiny finish

If you want a lightweight, warm, good looking, functional, and highly compressible jacket, get the Marmot Baffin. This jacket compresses as small as my Patagonia Down Sweater.

The material, which is a 15 denier ripstop nylon, is a bit on the shiny side, but, if you can overlook that, this jacket will deliver.  The outer is treated with a DWR so it sheds mist and snow. It's great if you encounter wet conditions because of its synthetic nature. It is not waterproof, but, it is not designed to be a raincoat. 

It's insulated with Marmot's Thermal R Eco Insulation, which is probably similar to Primaloft. It packs away into the chest pocket and it can be used as a pillow once it is packed. It packs down to slightly larger than a softball and weighs 13.4 oz.

I'm very happy with the purchase of this jacket and plan to get many years of use from it.

Keep in mind, do not get too close to the campfire with this one. A stray ember will burn through the outer shell. It can be repaired with McNett Tenacious Tape, however.

I will primarily use this jacket for dayhikes and backpacking. Makes a great travel jacket as well because it doesn't take up much space in your luggage.

Great for those trips when the weather begins to deteriorate, the Marmot Baffin Jacket for men is warm, lightweight, fully insulated outerwear that packs down easily to fit in a corner of your backpack. Recently Marmot updated their Men's Baffin Jackets, swapping out Primaloft for Thermal R Eco insulation. Thermal R Eco insulations offers similar insulating warmth and weight through a breathable cross-fiber design, but the materials are made from recycled and sustainable resources that are more eco-friendly than conventional soft shell insulation outerwear designs. The Baffin Jacket features zippered hand pockets, a zippered Napoleon chest pocket and reflective logo elements for improved visibility in low light conditions. Elastic cuffs and an elastic drawcord hem help seal in thermal warmth in breezy conditions. Like other jackets from Marmot, the Men's Baffin Jacket features Angel-Wing Movement, a gusseted construction that allows you to lift your arms without lifting the hem at the same time.
