"Get this if you are looking for an all-around multi-functional jacket!"
I looked at a number of component jackets before choosing this one. I have never gone wrong with Marmot, so was not surprised that this jacket exceeded all expectations. The shell is very sturdy but at the same time moves well. It also is long enough to add some warmth to the lower regions of the body. The interior fleece is very soft and warm but not over bearing.Both the hood and fleece are removable. If you are between sizes, you may want to go the size large if you are going to layer underneath. There is some extra room when the fleece is not attached.
