The Marmot Men's Variant Insulated Jacket balances performance with warmth for passionate alpinists with skis on their feet or ice axes in their hands. This performance-driven insulator uses Thermal R in the body to stay warm even if it gets wet, which would be a challenge since Marmot treated the body with a DWR treatment. Stretch fleece adds warmth and mobility to the sleeves and back. Marmot designed the jacket with a slimming athletic fit that's easy to layer over and move in.
