The Marmot Sky Pilot Insulated Ski Jacket is a great insulated and waterproof jacket with fully taped seems. It has Marmots two layer Membrain technology to keep you dry on the slopes, while allowing for good breathability. It also has Marmots Thermal R synthetic insulation to keep you warm. The Marmot Sky Pilot jacket is great for colder weather, but it also has good ventilation to cool you down on warmer days. The jacket has a regular fit that allows room for layering, while not being baggy. The length is slightly below hip level. The waist can be tightened if it feels too loose. The removable powder skirt helps to keep snow out. The outer shell feels soft, and it’s hard to say how durable it would be given that we only wore the jacket for a few days on the slopes. The Marmot Sky Pilot has three chest pockets, all of which are a little small, and positioned a little high (I find that most horizontal chest pockets are a little awkward to use, but it is nice that there is 3 of them). The two side pockets are fine, and the small arm pocket is nice for a pass. All of the zippers are water resistant. The Marmot Sky Pilot jacket has a lot of storage space, as there are also three internal pockets, all of which are very usable. Overall The Marmot Sky Pilot Insulated Ski Jacket is good for those who want a colder weather jacket with a lot of features, and can handle all but the really wet conditions.

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.
