Affordable 3-layer protection for your high-altitude expeditions, this Marmot Spire Gore-Tex(R) performance shell is ready for anything that you are.

- REI

If you're looking for an all-around shell for a winter of daring escapades, don't be fooled by the clean, lightweight design of the Marmot Women's Spire Jacket. This sleek shell's low weight belies its bombproof weather protection from a three-layer Gore-Tex membrane and fully taped seams; wear it for a long day on the skintrack or for a stormy weekend exploring a new resort and you'll stay warm and dry without overheating. Marmot understands the challenges of being active in the cold, a fact that's apparent in the thoughtful, functional touches it bestowed upon the Spire. A hood is standard on any tech shell, but the Spire's gale-force, helmet-compatible head shelter features an ERG adjustment system and a laminated wire brim to keep precipitation, wind, or sun out of your eyeballs. Because not every weekend will call for storm-day preparation, the Spire also comes with underarm vents and a zip-off powder skirt to equip it for sunny spring conditions. Even the hand pockets were carefully organized to sit above a pack belt or harness and are laser-drilled for added breathability. In order to adapt to all of your winter adventures, a shell has to allow freedom of mobility, so Marmot included its Angel Wing Movement on the Spire to ensure you have unhindered arm movement on a climb or technical bootpack. If you've never before experienced a chafed chin after a cold, wet day, count yourself lucky, then thank Marmot for making sure you'll never have to with the DriClime lined chin guard included on the Spire.
