The Marmot Leadville Jacket is a great lightweight softshell that can be used for a number of different activities. The jacket has Windstopper softshell fabric with side panels that stretch as you move. We tested out the Leadville Jacket on cold rainy and windy hikes. The softshell material is water resistant and while caught in the rain for 30 minutes, we kept dry. We caution you that this is not waterproof though, so it will soak through in long downpours. We found the jacket to be pretty lightweight while stuffing it in a pack when it was warm and it also can get pretty compact for saving room in your backpack. The Marmot Leadville jacket has a drawcord near the bottom and adjustable cuffs to lock in the warm and keep the cold weather and snow out. If you cannot live without your music, the jacket even has a hole in the pocket for your headphones. We found the jacket to run a little big as we tested out a large and found there to be plenty of extra room around the mid section. Our tester was 6’0 tall and 175lbs. Activities we think this jacket is ideal for include; cold weather hiking, spring skiing, snowshoeing, cold weather running, and looking sporty while grocery shopping.
