User Review: Marmot Men's ROM Jacket
Source: received it as a sample, freebie, or prize (Marmot)
Great softshell jacket for high on the mountain or just around town. Highly recommended as an essential part of your layering system.
- Alpine fit
- Moisture wicking
This thing breathes incredibly well especially for not having pit-zips which makes it lighter. It offers some warmth but definitely is to be used as a layering system on colder days.
I'm almost 6'1" and weigh 220 and have a large (that's me on the right). It fits snug and streamlined but I can still wear a powerfleece underneath along with baselayer of course.
The hood works well with a helmet but you don't feel like it swallows you without one.
Great climbing jacket as you don't feel it ride up when you're reaching higher with an ax or for a hold. It's also a short cut to accommodate a harness but not too short.
The Windstopper material is a plus and comes in real handy when storms start to kick up.
In short, I love this jacket and look forward to it serving me well for years to come.
Disclaimer: I received this product without cost and direct from Marmot but not as a professional athlete or reviewer. They helped out a charity climb up Mt. Rainier with some gear. I would definitely purchase this on my own but in this case I didn't have to.
