Marmot Northshore Jacket
Fabric: Polyester, nylon
Price Paid: $119
The Northshore offers a waterproof shell and fleece liner. Both the jacket and liner have pit zips, which allows me to fully customize my venting options. The full body mesh lining aids in removing sweat vapor.
One thing: the jacket should have more pockets, the hood's a bit flimsy, but useful. I have concerns about the shell's durability, but it hasn't failed me in the year I've owned it.
Great for staying warm outdoors, but don't consider using this one for ANY winter sports.
Price Paid: $175
Marmot is NOT "FOR LIFE" as their moto states. This jacket is worthless to anyone who sets foot in the woods, and the customer service was useless. Three days after owning it, I took it out for a hike in Tennessee's Savage Gulf. One tiny scrape from a briar and the thing is coming apart. Shipped it to Marmot and they shipped it back without fixing it and told me that they would CHARGE ME $120 to replace three panels on it. Now after several washes AS PER THE INSTRUCTIONS, the interior fabric cracking and leaking in the rain. I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER MARMOT PRODUCT AS LONG AS I LIVE!

The Marmot Northshore jacket is perfectly acclimated to the Northwest's weather not only is it perfectly waterproof, but it's warm and cozy as well. We wish Northshore was a reference to Hawaii's sunny beaches, but unfortunately, it applies to the gray Northwest. Two jackets in one, the Northshore takes Marmot's waterproof PreCip shell and adds a removable mid-weight fleece liner. A full hood and taped seams keep you fully protected from gails and downpours. Should things heat up, pit zips will keep air flowing, the liner zips out easily, and the hood rolls easily into the collar. Wear the full-meal deal for skiing mid-winter, and wear just the shell when the sun returns in the spring.
