Mens Variant Insulated Jacket
|Marmot Men's Variant Insulated Jacket - An ingenious hybrid design sets the Men's Variant Jacket from Marmot apart. The Variant is comprised of Polartec Power Stretch material in the back, sleeves and side panels while Thermal R insulation is sewn into the front panels creating a surprisingly warm garment that never feels bulky. Thermal R is a unique combination of multi-channel and hollow fibers that is designed to provide maximum warmth while reducing the adverse effects of perspiration, condensation and humidity. The fine multi-channeled fiber transports away moisture while the hollow fibers provide excellent loft with minimum weight. This insulation is resilient, has an excellent warmth to weight ratio, and is highly durable. Polartec Power Stretch fabrics feature a proprietary construction with two unique surfaces: the durable nylon outer layer is wind- and abrasion-resistant; the soft inner layer pulls moisture away from your skin keeping you dry, warm and comfortable. Sweat is wicked off the skin to the outside of the fabric where it spreads out to many times its original surface area, enabling it to dry at least 2 times faster than cotton. The Marmot Men's Variant Jacket is your best choice for highly active cold weather excursions when freedom of movement is crucial.
Sizing for the Marmot Men's Variant Insulated Jacket:
This is the best midlayer jacket I have ever had. Perfect 3 season usability. Kept me warm and protected during my month and a half expedition through the Absaroka Mountains and Wind River Wilderness. Amazing flexibility while I paddled and fished all types of waterways. Whatever the weather or situation is I am always packing this jacket. I am ~6'3 and ~200lbs, the large in this fits perfectly over my base layers. It is not too bulky to prevent additional layering and is breathable enough that I do not hesitate to layer up early if bad weather is around the corner. This jacket has convinced me to look into other Marmot gear. Please do not stop making this jacket Marmot.
So I purchased my first variant jacket in all black for work. I like the hybrid feel of the jacket. It's warm yet it let's in enough air so your not sweating like crazy... My 2nd jacket in black/blue with green zippers I got for my trip to china which was perfect as a standalone or under my shell. I like the inside pocket also.

This is the quintessential jacket for active use as well as cruising around town. I purchased the Small and at 5'8", 128lbs. it is the perfect fit with a great athletic cut. I clocked 70 miles running this week with temps averaging 15 degrees and only had a single layer underneath and found absolute equilibrium in body temp. I can be very selective about what I run in but hands down this is the perfect tool for my trade!
