Marmot Flurry Jacket

This insulated jacket has  fully adjustable hood and lined collar; three external zipped pockets (two lined), and a zipped stuff pocket inside; elasticated Velcro cuffs and drawcord hem. But the stuff pocket is on the small side; although there is a hood, there is no method of rolling it out the way; heavy at 760g; no women’s version.

Tog rating 3.2

A good, warm jacket with a hood and ample features but heavy.

Marmot Mountain Down

This duvet jacket uses  down insulation; reinforced shoulders and elbows; zipped, fleece-lined hip pockets; superb sleeve movement; removable hood; fleece-lined collar; snowskirt; stuffsack . But 1290g is very heavy; sewn-through construction rather than box wall.

Verdict: Buy it if you can tolerate the weight as the features and level of insulation are superb.


Marmot Original DriClime Windshirt

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.

Verdict: Buy it if you want a basic windshirt.
