I'm a huge fan of the stretchy awesome fit and comfort of Marmot Scree pant, so I decided to buy the matching Tempo jacket, and I am not disappointed. The Marmot M3 is not as wind resistant as some soft-shell fabrics, but it makes a great high-activity spring/fall softshell. Obviously, it breathes exceptionally well, but what I love is the awesome performance for the price I paid. Raglan sleeves offer exceptional mobility in addition to an incredibly stretchy fabric. The DWR can shed some light rain. I always treat with Revivex or Grangers after every wash, and my softshells will withstand some pretty harsh rains much better than the factory DWR allows. It's a no frills jacket that fits well (Medium fits perfectly on my 5'8, 155 frame with 40 inch chest), moves well, and is very comfortable. I love it so much that I bought the women's version for my girlfriend on sale. Marmot Scree Pant and Marmot Tempo Jacket -- an awesome combination!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value

I love this piece. It is my new "go to" jacket. You can stuff it in your pack and then put it on and it looks great. The fabric is stretchy and tuff, great for under a pack. I also love the colors.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever

Not the Same as Last Year's Tempo Jacket
December 04, 2012
Don't get me wrong, it's a nice jacket but nothing special. My previous model Tempo jacket I bought last year was much more athletic cut and was nice and light that you could wear and be comfortable in all day. This jacket is fine if you just want a normal light softshell but it's not as comfortable and not an athletic fit anymore. AND WHY DO THEY CHANGE SIZES ????? This XL Tempo jacket is WAY bigger than last year (by about 2 sizes). The sleeves are almost 3" longer than last year and sits about 2" lower on the waist. It took me 2 tries to get the last one just perfect and now the size is way off. They should give it a different name if its essentially a completely different jacket. Returning it and going back to MH.Pros: Build quality, Cons: too big

Comfortable fit but not as wind proof as it should be. Great detail for the spring and excellent color.
Solid all-around Jacket

Very pleased with this jacket. Am 6ft 1" 175lbs , large fits me fine, there is room for mid-weight layer underneath but yes this is a slim fitting jacket. Gave it four stars instead of 5 because I think the elastic cuffs are a touch tacky, but not a big deal I tuck them under a bit and am good to go.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Cons: elastic cuffs
Tempo jacket rocks!

What an awesome jacket:) Great fit with good stretch/flexibility, I am 5'4 with an athletic build and the medium fits me well. Internal and chest pockets are way cool and give you room for keys, iPod and other small gear items. As always, Altrec had the size and color I wanted and great customer service. This jacket is perfect for workouts, biking and just hanging out. You can never go wrong with Marmot:)Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value

Comfortable, sleek fitting men's jacket. Perfect for those cool breezes and scorching UVs at 11,000ft on the continental divide this past weekend.

This jacket is not as thick and warm as expected. It's a very good base layer. I would reccomend this product but not for the price I paid. Overall, I was satisfied with my purchase.Pros: Build quality, Ease of use, Cons: Cost
My Go-To Daily Jacket
September 17, 2011
I have many free-movement, light-weight jackets from different manufacturers. The Marmot Tempo is my favorite. It is so very comfortable. My previous favorite was an EMS brand I bought many years ago (it's no longer offered). I still wear the EMS for cool-weather yard work but the chest pocket zipper won't stay closed. After purchasing many similarly constructed jackets to replace the EMS, I finally hit on the one for me. What I looked for was freedom-of- movement, a breast-zippered pocket, mild-wet-weather function and a great fit. It looks like the designers of the Tempo were reading my mind - the zippers are beefy and are likely to last more than a few years of daily cool-weather wear. In cold weather I wear the jacket as a second layer. I could not be happier!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Bought this jacket to stay warm during the winter months. Not only is it windproof but warm too, I am even able to wear it underneath my snowboard jacket. Overall I am happy with the jacket.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use

I bought this jacket for winter/spring running and late spring climbing and am very satisfied with it so far. The fabric is light and very breathable, but durable. I'm 5'11 170 lbs and the jacket fits close without being tight. Overall I'm really happy with it and would definitely recommend it as a lightweight jacket fir high output activities.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
