Crinkly hardshell jackets restrict your movement and don't breathe as well as softshells, but most softshells don't have the weather protection you need to ascend powder-capped peaks. Marmot's Men's Zion Softshell Jacket resolves that dilemma with the highly innovative Polartec Neo Shell, which combines the soft hand, breathability, and stretch of a softshell with the reliable any-weather protection of a hardshell. Marmot finished off the Zion with fully taped seams and water-resistant zippers to ensure that absolutely no water can get through.
An athletic fit brings the Zion close your body and leaves more space in the shoulders and arms for an unrestricted movement. Pack Pockets are always accessible even when you have a pack or a harness on. The storm hood is completely adjustable, and its laminated visor offers complete eyesight while you belay your buddy. Asymmetric cuffs keep the sleeves off your hands so you can grab onto the route comfortably. They're also adjustable, as well as the hem, to completely seal in all that toasty warmth.
