Marmot Men's Altitude Jacket
When your fast and light day hike to the summit of South Sister involves strong winds and a chance of being in a dense cloud at the top, the Marmot Men's Altitude Jacket will help keep you warm, dry and moving comfortably at 10,000 feet. Made from Marmot M2 shell fabric, this softshell fleece jacket is well-suited for a variety of aerobic activities in moderate to cold weather. Water-resistant, wind-resistant, durable, warm and highly breathable, M2 fabric is the perfect balance between weather resistance and breathability. A chest pocket, an inside pocket and 2 lined zippered front pockets keep snacks, gloves and your hat handy and a DriClime-lined chin guard eliminates chin-chafe when fully zipped up. Angel-Wing Movement lets you raise your arms without lifting your jacket to make scree scrambles easy. Don't forget a pair of leather gloves for the scree-ski back down, you'll want to keep the Marmot Altitude Jacket for men in one piece for your North Sister climb next weekend.

Perfect Softshell Jacket
I've always been a big fan of the MHW softshells but their offwidth jackets are cut way to short in the torso. Decided to try the Marmot Altitude and have been thoroughly pleased with quality and fit. A much normal length. Also the jacket does have a light fleece type insulation in the enter lining. Marmot M-series fabrics are designed for moving light and fast. They combine stretchable, water repellent, abrasion resistant and highly breathable shell materials with insulating buffer materials on the inside. M2 shells are the ideal balance between weather resistance, breathability and thermal protection. They are appropriate for a wide range of aerobic use in moderate to cold conditions.

Marmot comes through with high quality products. Jacket is highly wind resistant, water/snow resistant and warm - as advertised. Does allow for layering underneath. Arm holes/sleeves are a bit snug and can catch sleeves of layer(s). Otherwise, great fit. Would highly recommend.

I've had the jacket for less than a week, but still wanted to offer this early review because I'm so pleased with this purchase. First, the small was a perfect fit. (I'm about 5'8", 155, athletic build - endurance running is my sport). It's not too tight and enough room for a sweater/hoodie under. Second, the jacket is well made. You can tell from the minute you pull it out of the packaging that this product will last. Finally, I've had a chance to wear it in high 20s to low 40s. With the lower temps, it's great with a second layer; plenty of warmth. At the higher end, the jacket provides plenty of warmth with a single layer. I highly recommend the jacket.
