Marmot Tempo Jacket (2013)

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 bulky. The pockets are excellent: large and well-placed – and mesh lined for ventilation too. And the cuffs pull up and down easily. The collar is medium height but snug and drawcords control the tension in the hem.
