Gore-Tex Windstopper Softshell fabric with Wicking Backer
"The end-all be-all jacket to change the world."
I bought this on sale, and it was the last one. I can't seem to find them anymore, because I want 2 more. I want to keep 1 for my mountaineering where I care about the DWR and don't want to tear it up over time, I want another one for everyday use which I can tear up and still be warm, and I want a third as backup for when they stop making them!This thing is warm, but does have a breezy setup when the pockets are open (so it vents really really well). It works great over a down layer and under a hardshell like goretex. I loved the hood and I loved how it behaved in deep snow.
The ROM jacket in slate grey is a beautiful product. The colors are great, and can be worn around town with jeans or on the slopes. The quality of the build is great. Everything is meticulously crafted, and the fit was perfect. I am 135 lbs, 5 ft. 10 in, slim athletic build, and the small was perfect.Here is why I returned mine. Marmot, as you may or may not know, has an M1, M2, and M3 material for their softshells. The M1 is the warmest and most weather resistant and the M3 is the lightest in all aspects. I was looking for a jacket to wear around town and when I ski. The jacket would replace my current fleece lined softshell , and would be adaptable.The ROM is an M2, and it is for aerobic activites in cool to cold climates, and is weather resistant. For me, I would have to wear a fleece with this jacket when it was in the 40's and below. It is not a warm jacket (there is no warm lining). It is breathable and fairly wind resistant. I bought the Super Gravity, and it is perfect.
When I need a light shell for walking the dog, or something windproof to go over a puffy down sweater, this is the jacket I grab first. This jacket stays on the hook by the door, and doesn't migrate back into the closet... it gets used! My wife found one for me at an outlet store, and I loved it so much she went back & got one for herself. As far as the fit goes, mine is an XL. I"m 6'3 and 225, and it fits me well. My only quibble is that the sleeves feel a little tight through the forearm when I'm wearing a puffy layer underneath.Other than that, I love this jacket.
"Breathable and windproof. . . what more do you want?"
This is essentially the Leadville with a hood. Not sure I really need the hood -- it won't fit over my climbing helmet and if I'm cold I'd wear a beanie. But, heck, I bought it with a hood so I can't complain!I'm 6'6", 250#. The sleeves and body are long enough that I could fit in an XL, but I got the XXL as it gives me more room to layer underneath. All three exterior pockets remain accessible even with a backpack on. I'd like a little sleeve pocket on it as well, but that is picking nits. The material is very soft and comfortable. The Gore windstopper does its thing, yet the jacket breathes pretty well. Not sure about its water repellancy, but didn't buy it for that purpose. Packs down well.
"This is the best jacket I've ever owned"
This is a great combination of warmth and breathability, making it perfect for both warmer and colder weather. I own a Precip, which is a great rain jacket, but if it's at all warm, I end up sweating a lot! The ROM isn’t as rain-proof, but it's so breathable that I can wear it without sweating and feeling, yet it's warm and stops anything short of a hurricane. I'm 5'10" and 165, and the medium is plenty big. It’s just a bit on the big side, which means I can put 2-3 layers on under it, and get super warm. Oh, and I bought the gray/cinder one, and I think I look like Desmond Miles from Assassin's Creed--which is kinda cool too :)
Just got back from a week long ski trip in Steamboat. Rocked my ROM jacket all week and I love it! Had to upgrade to a large and was glad I did because I was able to fit layers underneath on those high 20s days but did not feel bulky when I just wore a T-shirt. Definitely would recommend this jacket.
I am a 5'10 male weighing around 205, but very athletic. I got the medium by accident but I am starting to realize this may have been the fit for me! It is a little snug, but I have been able to fit a sweatshirt underneath with out loosing ROM, but I did notice when I raise my hands above my head, my belly shows and the ladies start running! So that is why I think a large may have fit better.The jacket is very well made and I have worn it several times and have stayed warm. I am heading out to Colorado for some skiing and I am pretty excited to see how this jacket holds up!I would recommend everyone getting this jacket!
O soft shell, how do I love thee?Many reasons, more than three.I love thee climbing ice,You are stretchy and o so nice.I love thee on rock,You are snug just like a sock.When it is windy, brisk, and cold,Your pockets, hood, and zipper keep me sold.Should everyone get thee, I do believe.Because a ROM is a Rare breed indeed.
Recently received this jacket and tested it out this morning. Conditions were not ideal, sort of a misting stuck in the clouds hike, temperatures in the mid-30's and at times on saddles winds were gusting to 60+ mph. The windstopper worked well and I stayed pretty dry and warm with just short sleeves underneath. So far no complaints whatsoever.For sizing info, I'm 6'00", 160 lbs and the medium fits perfectly.
What can I say? A bad a$$ jacket and the best customer service on this side of the Milky Way. Seriously, I checked. Having been a devoted REI member since 1998. I am by and large making the switch and giving this company my hard earned dough. Thanks MJ staff. Frickin awsome.
"High quality technical jacket that impresses the ladies too!"
It performs exactly as Marmot describes. Got DWR coating on it--keeps the rain off well unless it's an absolute downpoor, stretches when you need it too and doesn't ride up when you raise your arms. The windstopper fabric is soft and quiet when you move and makes the jacket look like some kind of athletic hoody you would wear to the gym. The hood is perfectly designed in my opinion.There are non-winstopper panels built into the sides of it that lets the wind come right in when you're not moving. I would rather the jacket be all windstopper with huge pit zips in place of these panels because they get annoying an keep this thing from being the "jacket to end all jackets" for me.
"Great jacket for many uses, met my expectations."
I bought this to be a softshell layer for Rainier hoping it would repel wind and light snow/rain. It did just that. We were in some heavy wind and freezing rain and all I had on was this and a light underlayer and I felt great. the zipper also covers your face which is nice. It is extremely comfortable for everyday use as well. Great jacket for someone who wants to enjoy the outdoors.
