Marmot Spire Jacket

See all pictures

Coming in both men’s and women’s versions, the Spire by Marmot is the embodiment of a well-built ski jacket. The brand has a great reputation for creating waterproof rain jackets, so this release was already a half-success before ski enthusiasts even started purchasing it. A GORE-TEX technology along with the zip-out powder skirt and an alterable hood make it an impressive piece of sportswear that is ideal for resort and backcountry use. Not to mention that the outer shell is made from environmentally-friendly materials, which is a great contribution to a life with less waste. With the Angel Wing movement being one of the many features of the jacket, you will feel the freedom of moving your body around whenever you are sliding down the hill or climbing up the slope. And, most importantly, you won’t overheat as the built-in pit zips are there to cool you down every time you start feeling extra warm.
