Marmot Needle Parka
Price Paid: $100
First, I got this from Campmor for $100. I needed something I could pack in and wear while on belay. I remember freezing my butt off last winter.
The jacket got here and is plenty warm. It is very comfortable and allows me to have all the movement I want. The Dri-clime on the cuffs is a nice touch as well. I can't verify the waterproofness of the material but don't expect to test it either since I live in the interior of Alaska. The hood is very warm too.
I think the full price of $325 is high but I can easily understand a price of $200 or less. The bottom line is that this is a packable and very warm jacket. In fact, I'm buying another one right now...
Price Paid: $143.97
No storm skirt, no mid-section draw, skimpy pockets, very light materials, not so warm. Just OK.
