Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The warmth to weight ratio of this grid-polyester fleece is outstanding – at under 500 grams, it offers solid midweight insulation and incredible compactibility. Zippered chest pocket and handwarmer pockets have softshell-bonding that provides additional protection, and an interior zippered pocket with headphone port keeps your music system safe.

Marmot was born in a former grocery store in Grand Junction, Colorado USA in the spring of 1974, opening as a rental and retail shop under the name of Marmot Mountain Works. Our original gear was targeted at climbers and mountaineers that needed products for expedition use they could depend on. From small beginnings 38 years ago, we have grown and expanded our line to encompass multiple product categories, and are now distributed in nearly 60 countries worldwide. Our goal, just as much now as when we started, is to design product that is authentic, innovative, technical and works in the real world. It's just now our world's much bigger.
In every area of business practice we engage in, we passionately seek the highest level of quality, performance, sustainability and value. We craft professional quality outdoor gear, born from the experience of working mountain guides and instructors. Inspired by the alpinist spirit of adventure to search and achieve in a harsh world, our products are simple, appropriate, dependable and damn good looking.

Light weight yet fully featured 20 Mar 2013
By korova - Published on
When you need to move fast and light, the Alpinist Tech Jacket is a great midlayer that can double as a minimalist outer layer in dry conditions.

What I like
*Warm and light without a lot of bulk.
*Breathes well and dries very quickly.
*Even though the ATJ is best used as a midlayer, it has a lot of outer layer features, including drawstrings with cord locks at the waist, a zippered inner pocket, and a storm flap behind the main zipper.
*Areas with the potential for high friction, such as around the collar, chest pocket, and lower pockets, are reinforced with an abrasion resistant material.
*Flat seams add to comfort when layering and when wearing a backpack or other bag with shoulder straps.

Some caveats
*The lightweight polyester fleece fabric does not seem as durable as traditional softshell material.
*The main zipper is not a two-way zipper.
*The cuffs are elasticized but cannot be adjusted in any way.

Bottom line: the Alpinist Tech Jacket is my go-to midlayer when space and weight are at a premium (I often use it with a Super Mica waterproof shell). I don't think it will stand up that well to a lot of abuse or hard wear, but I have "traditional" soft and hard shells to use for the rough stuff. Four stars, keeping in mind how I use the ATJ.

Addendum (September 2013)
If you're trying to decide between the ATJ and a Patagonia R1 jacket, there are currently two major differences between the two garments. First, the R1's material has a soft, shiny finish. This makes it easier to don additional layers but also means the fabric has a higher tendency to snag or "catch" on rough surfaces when it's your outermost layer. Even hands with dry skin (you know, the way hands get in the winter) have a slight Velcro effect. The second difference is in the cuffs. If you like thumb loops, go with a R1. Or if you're a Marmot loyalist and want the thumb loops and the same fabric as the R1, pick up a Thermo Hoody.

It's good... 18 April 2013

It's an athletic cut and on the thin side. But it looks great on. I'm not husky but I workout. Think skinny runner and get a size bigger if you have muscles.

Perfect for Southern California weather. I live in San Diego and I would say this jacket is not too thick or too thin just the right blend. Very soft and breathable.

Fleece does not have headphone port in inner pocket as explained in description. Im not a climber; I wear this fleece in a urban setting so I like to listen to my music while walking around.
