FS: Marmot Zion Jacket - new condition, 55% off retail

Postby qrohlf » Wed May 16, 2012 5:17 pm

I am selling a men's medium Marmot Zion waterproof softshell. It's a really great jacket which I have found to be truly waterproof and breatheable. Unfortunately for me, on the one trip I used it on I discovered that I should have ordered a small rather than a medium.

Anyways, the jacket retails for $375. I'm asking for $175, which is a crazy good deal for a jacket with zero wear and only two days of use. Send me a forum message or email me at qrohlf@gmail.com if interested.

Some thoughts on this jacket: I was surprised to discover that the hype surrounding the NeoShell fabric used in this jacket is partially true. This jacket breathes much better than any hardshell I've ever owned and it is in fact waterproof. With that said, the breatheability, while very good, isn't quite on par with a similarly priced non-waterproof softshell. This jacket is definitely made with wet conditions in mind.

ImageHood Adjustment Detail

The hood is well designed and cinches down well without having to fiddle with a half dozen different adjustment cords. I especially appreciate this, because I found that I liked the hood cinched down when I wasn't wearing a hat, and loose when I wore my beanie.

ImageLogo Detail

Marmot definitely wants their name associated with this jacket. There's a chest logo, their circle-m thingy on the back, and a small (I didn't notice it until recently) logo on the brim of the hood. So if you're looking for something casual and sophisticated to wear around town, this probably isn't the jacket for you. But if your looking for a flagship high-performance product from a top manufacturer, the logos are just another reminder that you're looking at one.

ImageBack of Jacket

The shoulders are reinforced with this triangle pattern right where a backpack's straps will rest. This also gives the jacket a bit of a tech look while keeping the design pretty simple.

Again, this thing retails for $375, I'm selling it for $175.
