The Marmot Tram Line Insulated Ski Jacket comes with Marmots waterproof and breathable MemBrain liner and Thermal R insulation to keep you warm and dry on the slopes. It does have fully taped seems to keep water out, and the Thermal R insulation is pretty warm, although it may not be the best for extremely cold days. The Marmot Tram Line does have ventilated pits to keep you cool when the weather warms up. The fit is regular, and the waist seems to run a bit longer than some of the other manufacturers at the same size. The waist is a bit loose, but can be tightened with the adjustable hem. The Marmot Tram Line does have a powder skirt to keep out the snow. The outer shell doesn’t have that super durable feel, but I can’t really talk about durability since we only wore the jacket for a limited time. The Marmot Tram Line has five outer pockets, although one of my complaints is that the horizontal chest pocket is a little hard to use. The other 4 are in a good position, and have plenty of space for a phone, pass, or your hands. There are also internal pockets for a music player, and goggles. The jacket does have external cuff adjustments. The Marmot Tram Line Insulated Ski Jacket is a great option for those who want a warm jacket that has a decent amount of waterproofing and breathability.

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.
