Marmot Origins X 2015 Review by A Better Ski

The Marmot Origins X Insulated Ski Jacket is a great insulated and waterproof jacket, with a good amount of breathability. This jacket is pretty warm, and when your moving around a lot you may have to dump heat via the pit zips. It has a slightly baggy fit, even though it says it’s a regular. The length of the Marmot Origins X jacket is right on par with the other marmot jackets, all of which tend to run a little bit longer. The jacket does have an adjustable hem for those who like to tighten the waist down a bit, and the jacket does have a built in powder skirt. The outer shell is soft, but waterproof and breathable. The vertical pocket on the chest is big, and positioned nicely on the jacket, making it a very useful pocket. The Marmot Origins X has two hand warming pockets on the sides, as well as a small pass pocket on the arm. All of the pockets have water resistant zippers. The jacket also comes with adjustable cuffs, an internal media pocket, and a mesh internal goggle pocket. The Marmot Origins X Insulated Ski Jacket has some nice features for the price, and is a good buy for those who want an insulated waterproof jacket.

Jacket Size- S

Matt’s Specs:
Normal Specs– 5’10”, 160 lbs,
Upper Body– 34.5” Chest, Torso Length 23” (collar bone to pant button), Shoulder Width Approx 22”, Arm Length 18.5” (pit to wrist)
Lower Body– 30” Waist, 38” Hips, 30” Inseam,  22” Thigh
Turn On’s: Active fit jackets that fit well around my chest and torso, but don’t restrict movement. Size S Pants that have a bit more room in my thighs, that way I can actually use my pockets. And of course getting first chair with 12” of fresh powder on the mountain.
Turn Off’s: Size S Jackets that are too tight, and Size M jackets that are too loose in the waist. I really don’t like a loose waist that can allow cold air in, and I don’t like having to cinch down the waist. I also don’t like jackets that ride up when I’m skiing, The jacket should stay in place. Pants that fit too tight in the thigh, and I can’t use my pockets. Crowds in the mountains, and not being able to find a place to park in at the trailhead or ski resort.
