Marmot Men's Approach Jacket

Whether you're hiking to the crag for some fall climbing with friends or taking Fido for a walk on a crisp morning, this softshell jacket will help wick moisture and block the wind to regulate your temperature. Light drizzle beads up on the surface and the M3 softshell fabric dries out quickly. Adjustable Velcro cuffs and a drawcord at the hem help seal out chilly breezes while a full front zipper gives you ventilation options.

Reviews - Marmot Men's Approach Jacket
I really like this jacket. It is light enough to wear a ton of different places but really warm enough when you need it. Great jacket over all the only thing i would say is a downside are the sleeves are super long but it still is fine due to the velcro on the cuffs.
Great jacket for spring/fall outdoors activity
I got this jacket just before a traveling to San Francisco in early spring, it was very comfortable, packable, and held up well during some cold SF nights. Back in the east coast, it has been my favorite jacket during the season, and hopefully will serve me well in the fall. I haven't used it for strenuous activity, just regular about town casual use. Holds up well with light rain, but it won't be as effective in strong winds. I got an XL (need to work on the waist line...), so the sleeves are a bit longer, but the cuffs' velcro straps keep everything in place. The best feature has to be the nice protection and warmth you get around the neck when the jacket is fully zipped-up, no need for a scarf or extra garments.
The best thing about this jacket is that it fits me like a glove. I am 5'8", 147 lbs. and size medium. I needed a light-weight versatile jacket to trek around town and the occasional hike and this one fits the bill in terms of performance and style. It is not windproof but does keep the chill off nicely and if you wanted to have a light layer underneath, it is a slightly snug fit because the cut is trim/athletic...but not too bad. I like the simple lines and just enough pockets and logo branding not to go overboard. Oh, and did i mention that it is very comfortable?... with no hot-spots anywhere....highly recommended!
