Marmot Artemis/Adroit (2014)

£200.00

This jacket is made from Marmot’s latest fabric, NanoPro Membrain, which boasts excellent breathability in the lab and in my experience is one of the best 2.5-layer fabrics available for controlling condensation on the hill. It comes in men’s and women’s version called the Artemis and Adroit respectively. The jacket has a good water-resistant zip up the front with an internal ...

Marmot Precip Pant (2014)

£75.00

As with the new Precip Jacket, Marmot is using its new NanoPro waterproof and breathable fabric in these trousers. Although this fabric is a 2.5-layer design, I’ve been really impressed with its performance and feel it’s the best 2.5-layer fabric I’ve used. These trousers are pretty light at 383g (size L), although not quite the lightest option. In terms of ...

Marmot Exum Guide Glove (2014)

£85.00

The Exum Guide is designed for mountaineering, alpine climbing and skiing; so it’s built to take a lot of abuse, while maintaining excellent dexterity. This also makes it ideal for walkers in need of a glove that can be used to handle trekking poles or a GPS, or just to easily zip up a jacket. The body of the glove ...

Marmot Spire (2013)

£280.00

The Marmot Spire has been around a few years and surprisingly it still uses standard Gore-Tex rather than the new Pro version, while it tips the scales at 713g, which adds up to this not being as instantly appealing as some other jackets. But on closer inspection it does have a snow skirt attached, which you can zip out and ...

Marmot Nano (2013)

£230.00

Gore-Tex Paclite is a 2-layer fabric, so you get a massive weight saving – and this brings the Marmot Nano in at just 249g (size L), which is some 100g lighter than other jackets of its design. The Nano benefits from two large chest pockets that are placed above any rucksack hipbelts, so you have great easy-access storage space for ...

Marmot Mica (2012)

£120.00

When moving fast and light every gram counts, and so in many ways the Marmot Mica £120 is the best jacket in our test as it is the lightest at just 204g (men’s size L), which is over 100g lighter than many of the alternatives. It is also half the price of some jackets we looked at, so it is ...

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 Alpinist 2011

£400.00

At £400 the Marmot Alpinist is definitely a considered purchase, as it has the highest price tag of those jackets featured, but if you can ignore the price for a moment, then there are some good features. For starters, although it is made from Gore-Tex Pro Shell like many others, it uses what appears to be a more durable version, ...

Marmot Spire 2011

£250.00

The Marmot Spire is a very well-featured jacket that is suitable for year-round mountain walking. It is made from Gore-Tex Performance Shell, which is not as breathable as Gore-Tex Pro Shell; but it is lower in price, which allows a more durable version of the fabric to be used, as well as allowing the jacket to be given additional features ...

Marmot Super Mica Jacket 2011

£160.00

The Marmot Super Mica is a beefed-up version of the original Mica, and it benefits from Duralite Zonal reinforcement at the shoulders and hips, which is a particularly neat solution for those who not only want lightweight gear, but also lightweight gear that’s durable. Lightweight fabrics by their very nature aren’t quite as rugged as heavier ones, so to ensure ...

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 Precip 2010

£80.00

The Marmot Precip is a modern classic that offers most of what anyone would want from a multi-activity jacket, including a great price. It is made from an extremely waterproof fabric, while mesh pockets and pit zips improve condensation control, which is a feature worth having when biking or running in particular. The front zip gets a double stormflap on ...

Marmot Mica/Crystalline 2010

£100.00

A jacket that remains the same price in 2010 as it was in 2009, the Marmot Mica/Crystalline makes use of a 2.5-layer fabric called Membrain Strata, which offers superb levels of waterproofness and breathability but is incredibly lightweight. The result of using this material is a jacket that weighs around 200g, and yet it still has a hood, pockets and ...

Marmot Precip 2010

£65.00

Lightweight trousers cut from a waterproof and breathable fabric that packs down well when not in use. Well-featured, including a selection of pockets and full-length zips that actually make it quite easy to access your normal trouser pockets. They definitely kept the rain out, even in some quite horrible weather, but they didn’t prove quite as breathable as some. They ...

Marmot Mica/Crystalline 2009

£100.00

When weight really matters the material a jacket is made from plays a major role. For the Mica/Crystalline, Marmot has chosen a 2.5-layer fabric called Membrain Strata, which boasts excellent lab test results so it is rated as extremely waterproof and extremely breathable by Trail. The fabric allows this jacket to weigh in at just over 200g, and yet it ...

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 Scree 2009

£60.00

The price of these Scree trousers is great. Marmot’s best-selling soft shell pants are very stretchy, light (411g) and arguably serve as well on UK and Alpine walks, scrambles and climbs as the TNF and ME equivalents at £30-40 more. Having said this, Marmot uses its most breathable soft shell material –for high aerobic use in mild conditions – so ...

Marmot Work Glove 2009

£60.00

The Marmot Work Glove is used by the guides at Glenmore Lodge and it does feel just right for battling against a Cairngorm blizzard day in, day out. There’s a waterproof lining and plenty of insulation to keep you warm. The brushed lining is very comfortable too, while the leather palm should mean years of durability. The cuff is quite ...

The Marmot Troll Wall is a new jacket that is perfectly designed for the more adventurous UK mountain walker who wants one jacket that does it all.

Marmot Spire 2008

The Marmot Spire general-purpose jacket is made from Gore-Tex Performance Shell, which saves a little in price without affecting performance too drastically, as while it is not quite as light or breathable as Pro Shell, it is plenty good enough and has the advantage of feeling a little tougher and stiffer, which some users may prefer. You get a superb ...
