Perfect all season jacket for San Francisco
September 28, 2010
I've been looking for a thicker fleece to wear at night and when it gets chilly in my hometown of San Francisco. I had been looking at Patagonia jackets but they come in wacky colors i don't like... and then i found the Marmot Solar Flair jacket. Was love at first sight.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Cost
Too Warm...Too Kewl
March 01, 2012
I got this in an attempt to replace my favorite old Marmot Windstopper fleece jacket. That jacket had the widest temperature range imaginable...20-80 degrees. Really amazing, you could wear it year round. Seal it up and be snug exercising in the cold, open the Pitzips and it was a great warm weather rain jacket or against wind and spray when sailing. Last year I got a 'softshell' (non-fleece Windstopper) Marmot jacket and it offered no warmth at all. Basically a wind/rain layer with a 10-20 degree temp range, 50-70. It also had no Marmot trademark 'outside breast pocket' (Your wallet or phone is 2 zips away. Dumb to abandon your own good ideas) This new jacket has no pitzips (Also Dumb) and instead there's a highly breathable side panel under the arms. To make that work they put the armpits up high to force the panel into the source of moisture. But it also forces your underlayers up into your armpits. It's uncomfortablely warm. Avoid sweaters. It NEEDS Pitzips (Another abandoned Marmot thing. I'll probably install my own pitzips) Its optimum range might be 20-50...after that you'll sweat. The outer patch pocket is too small for a wallet AND a phone and the armpits are already so snug anything in the pocket makes it worse. I'm still shopping for a replacement of my old windstopper fleece. But this jacket would be good over a thin base layer and under a well vented shell. It looks good but the closer you get it to your skin or base layer the better and don't expect it to keep up with any physical exertion. The Gorilla fur is fun..if they had a 'Silverback' version I would have got that.Pros: Build quality, looks cool, Cons: Low performance, too hot, no temp range
Awesome Jacket, However Slim Fit Had Me Returning
October 14, 2010
I am 6'5" 195lbs with a slim athletic build. The length of the fleece fit well (down over my waist), however the amount of shoulder room was just a bit small. The sleeves were long, but another 1/2-1" of length would have been ideal. The fur exterior is super soft and immediately warms you up. I had to return the product, but will be searching for something similar...Keep it up Marmot!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Cons: irregular fit
This is so good

This layers perfectly with the ROM jacket. I like how the thin stretch polarteck overlaps with the windstopper in the ROM. Does a nice job of utilizing the cold spots in both jackets. One thing I would change. Make that layer of stretchy side fabric about twice as thick. seeing as this is meant to be a cold weather jacket it could use some beefing up in the cooler breathable areas. I like the polarteck but often find a thicker version would come in handy for those mid layer garments where you hang out by the fire on a winter camping trip.
Great fleece jacket.

This fleece offers great comfort and fashion all in one package. The fleece jacket is soft and comfortable. The pocket on the front with the zipper is great. It is the perfect place to store a wallet or a phone. The texture of the coat will hide the products in the chest pocket, but it wont be uncomfortable or noticeable either. I bought this for a every day jacket. It is great for when getting out of the gym to put on and stay comfortable. I am 6 foot tall, 200lbs and it fits well. I have a 32 to 34 waist and it fits just right. Another great quality product.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
