The design brief given to Marmot's technical design team was very simple: design a new lightweight technical alpine shell that offers maximum performance and minimum cost.
The end result: Marmot's brand new 'Stretch Man' Jacket.
Marmot's new Stretch Man jacket offers year round weather protection without compromising on fit, performance and features. The Stretch Man jacket takes advantage of Marmot's new MemBrain 2.5 waterproof, windproof and breathable fabric to maximize weather protection.
The addition of a helmet compatible Gale force hood with a reinforced laminated brim helps ensure you can still keep active even in the worst of mountain weather. An anatomic cut combined with a 4 way stretch fabric offers exceptional flexibility and unparalleled range of motion even when wearing a heavy pack or restrictive climbing harness.
