Marmot Storm King Jacket - Men's

Hail the king.

Set the skintrack and declare your sovereignty over backcountry skiers on the summit with the Marmot Men's Storm King Jacket as your robe. Polartec Neo Shell gives this jacket reliable waterproof protection and ridiculously high breathability for sweaty skins. Unlike most breathable hardshells, the air permeable Storm King Jacket breathes the moment you put it on for better comfort.

Marmot's Angel-Wing Movement makes sure you can ski in the Storm King with full mobility. There are zippers under each arm for ventilated airflow, and the powder skirt removes when there isn't a sign of fluff anywhere. The hood features adjustable tabs, helmet compatibility, and a laminated brim that stays out of sight. There are other adjustments at the hem and cuffs to seal out the snow.

Unanswered Question

What Denier is the fabric? How strong is it? The Black Diamond Mission Pro is 150D (impressive) what is this? I've ripped some big wholes in similar garments from Arc'Teryx skiing trees and having them snag, so the toughness is important to me (Arc'Teryx will charge you $100 + for repairs..)


Is this jacket insulated with Primaloft Sport and if so what is the weight/rating? Thanks,

No, this is a waterproof, breathable and stretchable softshell made with Polartec® NeoShell® fabric . It is not insulated. Looks like our description is a little messed up - I'll email our content team to get that corrected!

Laura F, thanks. can you also verify the weight? 2lbs, 3oz is almost 3/4 of a pound heavier than the Zion jacket and that is a pretty heavy jacket.

2lbs 3oz (992.2g) - listed on Marmot's site. Sounds about right for a soft-shell! If you want something lighter, I'd look into a hardshell option like the Alpinist (MAR00LO)!

So there is both Primaloft and Neo Shell? Does that mean it provides some warmth as well versus a typical shell? As a soft shell, is it less wind resistant than a typical hard shell--of comparable high quality construction?

No, looks like our tech specs are correct but the description is wrong here. Sorry about that confusion! I emailed a request to have this information updated.

Feature List:

Polartec® Neo Shell® Waterproof/Breathable, Stretch Softshell Fabric, 100% Seam Taped, Helmet Compatible Hood with Laminated, Moldable Brim, RECCO Avalanche Rescue Reflector, PitZips with Water Resistant Zippers, Hand Pockets with Water Resistant Zippers, Chest Pocket with Water-Resistant Zipper, Flapped Chest Pocket, Wrist Pocket with Water-Resistant Zipper, Zip-off Powder Skirt, Internal Zip Pocket, Mesh Gear Pocket, Mesh Goggle Pocket, HD Brushed Tricot Collar, Elastic Drawcord Hem, Adjustable Velcro® Cuff, Angel-Wing Movement™

Main Materials:

Polartec® Neo Shell® 84% Polyester, 16% Elastane 7.7 oz/yd

I'm confused. The tech specs say it's Polartec Neo Shell, but the description says Gore Windstopper. Can you please verify?

Hey Gerard,

It is indeed Neoshell. And a fantastic jacket!

Long live the Neo Shell!

Thank you both for helping me! :)
