  • Zion has a full complement of big-mountain features and has the added benefit of being free from the noise of a hardshell; you'll put it on once and keep it on forever!
  • Polartec NeoShell 3-layer fabric is waterproof, blocks 99.9% of the wind and offers highly breathable 2-way air exchange; you'll stay comfortable in a wide range of weather
  • Durable shell fabric provides stretch for active comfort and warmth without a lot of weight
  • 100% seam taped for complete waterproofness
  • Attached storm hood with 3-way drawcords and a laminated brim; chin guard protects sensitive skin
  • Asymmetrical cuffs with rip-and-stick tab adjustments seal in warmth; make quick adjustments via hem drawcord

  • All zippers are water resistant
  • Marmot Zion features Angel-Wing Movement™ sleeves for comfortable and unrestricted range of motion

Marmot Zion Jacket - Men'sis rated5.0out of5by1.
Rated5out of5byfromThe Holy Grail of JacketsI just purchased this jacket (using my 20% off coupon--thank you REI!) and I'm extremely happy with it thus far. The fit is great; it feels slightly strange when it first goes on, but no different than any other attached-hood jacket I tried on in comparison. Once it's on, it moves with you and has enough room to be comfortable and unrestrictive, but not so much that you feel like you're wearing a garbage bag. I'm 6'2", 230ish lbs and bought a large. The sleeve length is excellent (I'm a 34/35 in shirts), and comes back off my wrist only when I have both arms fully extended in a full reach forward. The jacket has enough room on me to get a Polartec 200-weight fleece jacket on without making me look like the Stay-Puft marshmallow man, still leaving room to move. The back is long enough I could wear this on my bike as rain gear, though the tail wouldn't be long enough to hang below my seat. The shell is soft and relatively quiet--slightly noisier than my REI Neo Jacket, much quieter than any other traditional hard shell. One tech at a local store thought the brushed lining in the jacket would make it too warm to wear as a rain jacket in the summer, but I think it'll work great for me in any but the super-hot, super-muggy days where you wouldn't want to wear rain gear anyway. I can't speak to durability, since I've had it for four days, but it fits well. The pockets are generous but placed well, leaving room for a hip-belt (or harness, though I'm not a climber) and leaving the pockets accessible, but not the "Napoleon" pockets on some jackets, where you're crossing your body to access the contents. The chest and sleeve pockets are like that, of course, but not the main pockets, which are usable for hand-warming too. I was very hesitant to spend over $300 on any jacket, but this will be a four-season jacket for me, from shoveling in -10 to skiing to hiking to rain-wear or around-town. This will be perfect for my next trips to Seattle and San Francisco, too.
