Sizing for the Marmot Men's Alpinist Tech Jacket:
I purchased two of this Alpinist Tech Jacket, the black in Large, and the blue in Medium, because I was unsure how the jacket would fit. I am 6'2, 195 with broad shoulders which tends to shorten the sleeves a bit so I often have trouble coordinating sleeve length without making the body of the garment look like a billowy mess. The large is great to wear over a T and another long-sleeved shirt. Even with just a T under, the jacket is not at all baggy. It's not fitted mind you, but it's definitely not baggy. The medium is perfect to wear over just a T and the sleeve length is still perfect. This jacket fits great and allows for movement without feeling bound. I was unsure which would fit better and was prepared to only keep one, but I am definitely keeping both! These two jackets are two of the best investments I've made in a while.
Love the look, feel, performance and quality. This fleece sure seemed to do a fair job blocking those afternoon winds and keeping me warm above 12,000 ft in Colorado and held up amazing rubbing up against the rock faces on the way down. The size was perfect for me... I am 5'11'' and weigh 188 lbs. with a really long torso and I got the size large.
This jacket is awesome. I wear it around town and as a layering piece. It looks great and fits well. I suppose the arms are a little long, but the fit is pretty snug for the most part. I'm 5'8" and 130lbs and I got the small. Fits like a glove pretty much. More important though is how it functions. It's great on a cold day if the wind isn't too strong. I've worn it down into the 20s for quick walks around town comfortably with gloves and a hat. However, for long idle exposure to cold, I'd say its good on its own down to the mid 40s. If the wind is up at all, wear a wind piece over top. With a shell over top though it traps warmth in really well for a piece of this level. Get this fleece. You'll love it.
