Marmot Men's Baffin Jacket
Great for those trips when the weather begins to deteriorate, the Marmot Baffin Jacket for men is warm, lightweight, fully insulated outerwear that packs down easily to fit in a corner of your backpack. Recently Marmot updated their Men's Baffin Jackets, swapping out Primaloft for Thermal R Eco insulation. Thermal R Eco insulations offers similar insulating warmth and weight through a breathable cross-fiber design, but the materials are made from recycled and sustainable resources that are more eco-friendly than conventional soft shell insulation outerwear designs. The Baffin Jacket features zippered hand pockets, a zippered Napoleon chest pocket and reflective logo elements for improved visibility in low light conditions. Elastic cuffs and an elastic drawcord hem help seal in thermal warmth in breezy conditions. Like other jackets from Marmot, the Men's Baffin Jacket features Angel-Wing Movement, a gusseted construction that allows you to lift your arms without lifting the hem at the same time.

Reviews - Marmot Men's Baffin Jacket
Great as a layering piece. Super shiny.
Remember that scene in Back to The Future when Michael J Fox is sitting in the soda shop wearing his puffy down vest and the thug with Biff says Hey Biff, get a load of this guys life preserver. Dork thinks hes gonna drown". Wearing the black Baffin jacket makes me wonder if a similar scenario may play out. But the wisecrack would be more like "Hey check out Disco Astronaut and his shinny space coat". The Baffin is a keeper don't get me wrong. And it will certainly find a home beneath my Marmot Troll Wall and Minimalist jackets where their Gore Tex membranes will hopefully shield Biff and his ruffians from it's lacquered sheen. This coat is shiny. It glistens. When I walk down the sidewalk Stayin' Alive plays from some unidentified source. But seriously, the Baffin does what it's supposed to and that is provide a ton of warmth in a lightweight no-frills package. And honestly, I ain't afraid of Biff and company. Because if things get dicey, I can stuff the super packable Baffin into the Flux Capacitor; this thing must pack some serious jigga-watts.
Great all round jacket
Good for urban wear or backcountry. Cut enables layering or wearing as a stand alone (not too snug or too loose). Parachute type material makes it easy to slip on under something, but more importantly gives it a slick no-frills, yet soft feel. My wife wishes they made them for women! On the downside, it isn't as water repellent as I would have hoped, but otherwise, I would heartily recommend the jacket!
I am 5'9 and 160 lbs. I ordered the medium and it fits nicely with a t-shirt and a long sleeve shirt underneath. The jacket is very light so I do not feel like carrying lots of weight. I went skiing in Colorado in January in around 15 degree F with this jacket. Overall it is a nice jacket for a good price.
