Marmot Men's ROM Jacket
We'll give you three guesses what the letters ROM stand for in the Men's Marmot ROM Jacket. Don't get too carried away, it stands for Range of Motion. Marmot took their M2 softshell and GORE WINDSTOPPER fabrics to create a wickedly comfortable jacket that's windproof, highly water-resistant and breathable. Perfect for alpine and ice climbing, as well as skiing and hiking, this jacket is flush with creative design elements. Side panels vent. The sleeve cuffs have an asymmetric cut. And the sleeves themselves sport Angel-Wing Movement, which allows a full range of motion without the sleeves riding up. The Pack Pockets are slanted to allow access even when wearing a pack, and there's a chest pocket with hidden zipper. The list goes on, but rest assured, if you're looking for a water-resistant, windproof breathable jacket that can handle any activity, zip up the ROM Jacket for men from Marmot and GTHO.

I love the ROM jacket. Fits great, great quality zippers and construction. Great hood . Really really wind and waterproof. Also very light in weight for the warmth that it provides. The jacket came right on time from Altrec too. I was searching for an outer layer shelll that would allow me to layer up if need be, but still be minimalist in weight. It fits that use perfectly. The "Range of Motion" cut is really nice too, you CAN get full movement of your arms without the jacket creeping up at all. Its handy for slinging a pack (what I have done with it so far) but I bet it will work great for skiing and climbing. The jacket was exactly as billed and I am totally pleased with it.

One of my Favorite Jackets
I own my own car wash So What is important to me is warmth and wind protection without bulk. I actually went and bought another one of these jackets. It's really a good looking jacket. goes very well with cacky pants and really blocks out the wind very well. I am 6'2 about 160 pounds. The medium fits great. I like how it's not to short and allows me to bundle up some layers underneath. I would recommend this jacket to anyone.

A Great Softshell for Active Pursuits
I purchased this softshell jacket a while back and I have been extremely pleased that I did. It is a M2 softshell with windstopper on the front and back and stretchy softshell fabric under the arms and don the sides. This creates a jacket that is super confortable to wear in that it is supple and moves with you but also a jacket that blocks a fair bit of the inclement weather. I have not worn it in a downpour yet, but it works well in light rain or short burst of heavy rain. It has no problems in the snow. When you heat up from exertion or temperature, the jacket breathes really well and controls the excess heat. I did find it to run slightly large. I am 5'10 1/2 and 160 lbs and had to go with the small because the medium felt huge. In the small it is a more trim fit but since the jacket moves so well, I like it like that. The Marmot ROM Jacket is one of my favorites.

Too bad I had to return it
This jacket appears to be very versatile and made to meet all your outdoor pursuits. I like the fabric and the basic design. Unfortunately I returned it for two reasons: (1) it fits quite large (I own several other Marmot pieces and they usually has an "athletic" fit to them), and (2) the cardinal red color has a pink hue to it. You might consider sizing down, but I tried on the next size down at a local store and it was a tad small. Just be aware this fits a bit large. Altrec's return procedures have improved significantly. Processing a return used to move at glacial speed, bu this return was processed very promptly. I'll be back.
