Mark Newcomb has had a long history of putting Marmot Gear through the ringer with several major expeditions and many years of guiding with Exum Mountain Guides. After deciding to return to school a few years ago, Mark is currently working on earning a PHD but that hasn’t stopped him from getting out there and testing out the newest Marmot gear. Learn more about Mark and his history with Marmot on marmotpro.com. Compare two commonly heard comments on outdoor gear. “It’s a nice jacket, but…..” to “I love this jacket!”. As an outdoor professional, I’m constantly talking gear to both my co-workers and my clients, and I get to hear comments that run the spectrum. The one I hear most often is the first one. So many pieces of gear do the job, but…there’s always a “but” clause. Not so with the DriClime® Jacket. Across the board, from professionals right down to the most casual outdoors person, the one comment I hear almost 100% of the time is simply, “This is an awesome jacket!”, or “I love this jacket”, and that includes the pros I work with. You only have to wear the DriClime® on a cool, windy day one time to know why. The DriClime® sports a combination of windproof nylon shell with a remarkable bi-weave lining that wicks like the dickens and feels as soft as the belly of a kitten. And through an intuitive feel for fit, Marmot got everything right, from sleeve length to core fit. The result? From 65 year old retirees pursuing their traveling dreams to honed alpine climbers comes the uniform comment, “I love this jacket!”. No wonder it’s an all-time classic.
