Marmot Sassy Jacket

Marmot's Sassy Jacket is a must-have for Fall.  This jacket combines fashion with technology and this makes for a coat that looks smashing and does the job, really well.   The fit is super figure flattering, with detailing in the back for nice lines.  The sleeves have zippers and the overall look is quite feminine and sleek. 

It's ideal for travel and even has an inner pocket designed specifically for tickets.  On the opposite side is a zippered stash pocket.  It looks so cute with jeans and boots and would be fine for the office or the trails.  The hood is nice and wide and has a visor for extra protection.

The Sassy combines DriClime and Marmot MemBrain technology, the former a fabric that wicks moisture away and the latter keeps it breathable and eliminates condensation chill.  This coat will keep you warm and dry.  It uses Marmot's two layer construction which is soft and pliable, it feels warm, but it's very light weight.

This sizing is on the small side.  I am typically a medium size 8/10 and sized up to a large with this jacket and it fits perfectly with room for bulky sweaters and fleece.  I love that the sleeves are not too long, sometimes when you size up the sleeves are way too long and throw off the whole look.

Marmot's designers did a fabulous job with this great all around coat, highly recommend it and I warn you that after wearing this, you're apt to go back for another color.  Bring on the rain!   Hint:  REI carries this jacket and has a 20% off coupon right now, or you can go directly to the Marmot site to pick one up.
