Product Highlights

Polartec NeoShell fabrics not only make the Marmot Zion Jacket lightweight and waterproof, but also provide breathability and stretch for skiing, winter trekking, climbing or mountaineering. The Zion Jacket's membrane allows air to pull moisture vapor out of the garment, so it helps to keep you dry during high-exertion activities.

A few of the features on the Zion Jacket include an attached adjustable storm hood with a laminated brim, water resistant zippers and asymmetrical cuffs with Velcro adjustments. Marmot also includes their Angel-Wing Movement design for full mobility throughout the arms, shoulders and torso to prevent the jacket from riding up. Durable shoulder abrasion panels help to hold pack straps in place and the soft shell fabric is much quieter than traditional hard shells.

The Zion Jacket includes four external pockets with water resistant zippers, two hand pockets, one chest pocket, one internal zippered pocket and one zippered sleeve pocket. An elastic drawcord hem allows you to seal out cold wind and snow when the weather gets serious.

The Marmot Zion Jacket comes in your choice of color and size.

  • Brendan H. Columbus OH

    Likes: Stretchable; good overall length; fabric a good weight - versatile for fall through spring; light but still had decent pockets/storage options

    Dislikes: Armholes on the jacket were a bit small, and thus too tight, especially if trying to add a fleece layer underneath. I would have expected this on a small size, but I got an XL. Haven't had this issue before.

  • Doowan L. Pebble Beach CA

    Likes: This is by far the best all-around hiking jacket. I also have several North Face jackets but this is my go-to jacket for serious hiking. Completely waterproof and breathable. The reflective strips are great for visibility when hiking with others. Lots of functional pockets within reach. Roomy enough to wear two layers inside. But it is warm by itself. Just superbly functional. Well worth the price.

    Dislikes: A bit roomy, but it allows me a couple of layers inside.
