Marmot Trango Sweater
Fill: Polarguard RD
Price Paid: $80 (on sale)
Very comfortable, warm, light, heavy-duty jacket.The kind of jacket that you will always put in the pack: not to use it extensively while climbing (breathability is medium-low, but it has long pit zips), but in any other situation. Colors give a sort of cheap aspect, but the jacket works really fine. Less delicate than down jackets (like the Marmot Down sweater or the TNF Nuptse), far more wind resisting, and if it gets wet it is not a tragedy (dries really quickly).
The only complaints are the pocket zips, that get stuck frequently. I will also suggest Marmot to use a TNF stuffing system (a big external pocket as stuff sack), because the internal pocket is delicate and irregularly shaped. Very good product.
Fabric: Rip Stop Nylon
Fill: Polarguard 3D
Price Paid: $135.20 (20% off $169)
I really like this jacket. I purchased it to replace my bulkier Marmot Climbing sweater (300 wt. polar fleece) because it is much more compressible. The climbing sweater is nice, but for longer mountaineering trips its bulk is less than ideal.
I own a good deal of Marmot equipment and the Trango Sweater lives up to Marmot excellent quality standards. It close fitting, without limiting movement. It has vecro storm closure on the wrists, has pit zips and hand warmer pockets. The warmth, weight, compressability and feature like the wrist closers, pit zips and interior and exterior pockets make this a really good buy.

This is the best lightweight winter jacket on the market, after three years of heavy abuse this comfortable light jacket has performed well. Its warm and comfortable in cold conditions or just windy days.
