Marmot Thermo Hoody (2014)

£100.00

The divisions between next to skin base layers, insulating mid-layers and waterproof outer layers are becoming ever more blurred as brands develop products to suit every style of outdoor activity and the specific needs of different types of users. The Marmot Thermo Hoody is a thin mid layer, but it could also be considered as a thick base layer. For ...

Marmot Tempo Jacket (2013)

£90.00

The Tempo has a fast and light feel. The fabric is super-stretchy – great for easy movement – but it doesn’t offer much insulation so is best for those that run hot. It keeps wind out and breathes well, and it’ll repel a little moisture when needed too. It feels good as a mid-layer – snug fitting and not too ...

Marmot Dena Jacket (2012)

£130.00

Not only can you lighten your backpack with the Marmot Dena Jacket (at 325g, size women’s S,  it’s the second lightest jacket in our test) but you can also boost your green credentials as the synthetic insulation is made from 100 per cent recycled fabric. Despite its light weight it does keep you relatively warm, and it can pack down ...

Marmot Baffin Half-Zip (2012)

£110.00

This is a kind of hybrid style of jacket that offers more warmth than a fleece with a bit of extra waterproofing thrown in. As a pullover style it won’t be to everyone’s taste, and it isn’t the easiest to take off in a hurry. But the thinking is that you shouldn’t need to take it off so often because ...

Marmot Midweight Zip Neck IS (2012)

£45.00

A midweight top that seems best-suited to slightly cooler conditions. The inside of the fabric is lined with a waffle-effect finish to the Polartec Power Dry fabric, which not only helps trap a bit of heat but also helps draw moisture up and away from the skin. The fabric also has a decent amount of built-in stretch that gives it ...

Marmot ROM Jacket 2011

£160.00

The Marmot ROM Jacket is designed to allow a full Range of Motion (ROM) without riding up. You can swing your arms without the sleeves or hem moving too much. But then, other jackets also achieve this without advertising it. The jacket is made with Gore Windstopper fabric which has a membrane inside to improve wind and water resistance, but ...

Marmot Ama Dablam 2011

£170.00

The Marmot Ama Dablam is a lighter-weight duvet than those at a lower price but you still get a hood and a reasonable amount of insulation. The jacket has top-quality down and a polyester shell that resists light rain and is much softer than the nylon options. The Ama Dablam has the usual zipped hip pockets and a good anti-snag ...

Marmot Leadville

£120.00

This has ‘pub jacket’ written all over it, but the Leadville is much more than that. Tidy looks are backed up by Gore Windstopper fabric – used throughout most of the jacket to maintain core temperature whilst blocking out the breeze extremely effectively. Mesh-lined pockets help with venting on top of the underarm stretch panelling. Water repellence is among the ...

Marmot Midweight Long Sleeve 2009

£44.00

The Marmot Midweight Long Sleeve is an exceptionally light yet weirdly substantial-feeling base layer. Put it on and it’s warm, yet it wicks well. This is down to the Polartec Powerdry fabric, which is warm, slightly stretchy and good at managing moisture. It uses an ecologically aware ‘Upcycle’ policy, which utilises industrial cast-offs. This base layer also uses Cocona technology, ...

Marmot Gravity

£100.00

The fleece-backed fabric felt lovely and soft, however, it felt stiff and heavy on the hill and, despite having Velcro adjustment, the cuffs were difficult to pull up to cool down. A warm jacket and noticeably more breathable than most due to a wind-resistant rather than windproof fabric. Dealt well with a shower.

Marmot Switchback Short Sleeve

£34.00

This T-shirt  is a very sporty number with a discreet chest pocket that uses recycled fabric to give it extra environmental clout. It has mountain bike chic, a relaxed fit and benefits from the antimicrobial properties of Cocona. The front zip is an excellent venting feature for really hot days.

£60.00

This soft shell weighs 322g; wind-resistant shell with wicking and insulating lining; brushed polyester collar; small chest pocket; excellent freedom of movement; perfect for mountain biking and light mountain travel. But not as durable as others, no map-sized pockets; no hem drawcord; a smock would be an even better use of the fabric.
