The Marmot Zion Jacket was one of the first jackets anywhere to incorporate Polartec Neoshell waterproof fabric, and (we would argue) it remains the best soft-shell Neoshell offering on the market. What's so special about it, you ask? The Zion is a waterproof softshell jacket - not the first waterproof softshell, but almost certainly the best. Read on to find out why.
In April 1971, University of California Santa Cruz students Eric Reynolds and Dave Huntley were in Alaska on the Juneau Icefields on a school project in Glaciology. It was here on the glacier, amongst these students, that the idea of a Marmot club began. To become a Marmot, you had to climb a glaciated peak with another Marmot. One of the rules of the club was that everyone was president. Most of the other rules dealt with the collegiate fascination with bodily functions.
Eric and Dave went on to found Marmot Mountain Works in 1974, and through the years the company made lots of innovations in down jackets, sleeping bags, Gore-Tex apparel, and beyond. Their modest enterprise is now one of the largest and most respected outdoor gear companies in the world, distributed in over 60 countries, and it is still all about the highest-quality, innovative performance products.
Marmot Men's Zion Jacket.
Here it is: the next generation of softshells. The almost magical qualities of Polartec® NeoShell® not only make this lightweight jacket waterproof, but also highly breathable, with stretch for days. It comes with a full complement of big-mountain features, and has the added benefit of being free from the noise of a hardshell. Put it on once; keep it forever!
Alpine hiking in rain or snow doesn't have to be wet and miserable, the Zion Jacket from Marmot stops precip before it can get to you. Polartec NeoShell softshell fabric is waterproof and breathable while remaining stretchy to give way when needed without all the noise of a hard shell. Further block out cold weather elements using the attached storm hood with laminated brim, water-resistant zippers and Velcro cuffs.
The days of skinning or hiking in a sweat-box are long gone when you wear the Marmot Men's Zion Jacket. The water-resistant, breathable, and wind-resistant Polartec Neo Shell fabric delivers the protection of a hard shell with the breathability and mobility of a softshell.
When climbing is on the agenda, but the weather's not looking so great, pull on the Zion Jacket frrom Marmot. This waterproof, breathable softshell has 4-way stretch so you can make that big reach without being held back.
