Marmot Zion Jacket (size Medium)

Made with Polartec Neoshell, the Zion jacket is fully waterproof, very breathable, and has a soft, fuzzy cosy inside. It works very well as a Finnish winter jacket for ice climbing, mixed climbing, downhill skiing (arm pocket takes a lift pass perfectly) and snowshoeing and the like. The hood is not good enough at going over a climbing helmet to make it the best choice for climbing in the big mountains, but for more sheltered/lowland use like here in Finland it's great. My review of the Zion with all the technical details is here on UKclimbing.
