User Review: Marmot Men's Spire Jacket
Price Paid: less than EUR 300
I have used it in a few "normal" situations (sea level, tropical) as well as to climb 4000+ m peaks on the Alps and it always performed great. I was dressed in layers and I did not feel any wind at all on upper body, arms and head. I did not test it with super-heavy rain but I felt pretty dry on all occasions.
I am planning to use it now on the Andes and I expect great things.
