The Marmot Men's Wrangell Jacket is a sweater fleece ready to take on the outdoors. The Wrangell combines technical prowess needed in the outdoors with a slick look that can get you in with the cool crowd at your local bar. The sweater knit fleece is 100% polyester and looks great, with nylon reinforcements to protect against the rigors of the outdoors. The shoulder patches deter a light rain as well as stay strong under the stress of a backpack while on the trails. A regular fit keeps you comfortable when moving from camp to camp and a drawcord at the hem blocks out windy drafts. Open the zip halfway or leave it unzipped for regulating your temperature on mild days. The two hand pockets and single chest pocket all zip shut so you won't loose your pocket knife on the trail or wallet in the bar.

SPECIFICATIONS of the Marmot Men's Wrangell Jacket
I have owned this jacket for a few years. MJ had a great sale, so I purchased another as backup or for town use. This is a unique jacket. First, it is tailored and fit like a marmot garment (rhymes), which makes it functional and fashionable. The jacket sports great details, like stretch panels on the chest pocket, and a reinforced face fabric on the shoulders, zippers, and outside of the collar. The zippers are of a good quality and size. What I most like about this jacket is that the finish on the fleece is woven like a sweater. So one has a fleece, that weighs like a fleece, wicks like a fleece, and performs like a fleece, but it has a fine finish on the outside, and looks and has the hand of a finer-woven sweater. It doesn't show the fleece 'nap' on the outside. One can wear this in town, day or night, as well as on hey he trail with a pack.
This is a great warm fleece, that is stylish as well. I love the full front zip and the pockets are perfect. Its nice because the chest pocket is stretchy to fit more than just a phone, wallet, etc. It isn't windproof, which its not supposed to be, but under a shell on a windy day its great, or as a mid insulation layer under a shell and down jacket on really cold days.
