Whether you’re in the tram line, the lift line, the grocery line, or your deep pow line skiing, the Tram Line by Marmot will keep you warm, dry, and stylish. Some days call for more than just a shell and this will be your go to jacket on those days. With Thermal R insulation, a light and warm insulation, you will stay warmer and dryer whether sled skiing in the backcountry or lapping steep lines at the resort.
The Tram Line is packed with features such as a powder skirt, helmet compatible hood, taped seams, and tons of pockets for all the backcountry essentials. Easily feed your headphones through the media pocket, stash your goggles in the mesh goggle pocket, and warm your hands up in the lined hand pockets. You won’t run out of pockets when you’re wearing the Tram Line Jacket.
The fit of this Marmot jacket is comfortable and is built with an “Angel-Wing” movement construction ensuring that when you’re using your arms, your jacket is comfortable and fitting. The one complaint I have about the sleeves is that they are just a bit short for my liking. I need them just a little bit longer in order to pull them far over my gloves and keep the elements out.
The shell is made with Marmot’s MemBrain technology, which “balances the best in performance of breathability, waterproofness, and water repellency with excellent durability” (Marmot.com). All of these features combined with warm insulation will make this an ideal cold day jacket.
This jacket is only missing one key feature that I absolutely must have when I’m skiing, no matter where I’m skiing, and that is pit zips. Pit zips are a must have when I’m trying to regulate my body temperature especially in the backcountry where you’re hiking, using snowmobiles, skiing, and then hiking some more. They are key!
The technologies and features built in to this jacket make it a great jacket for skiing or snowboarding whether you’re in bounds or out. Marmot has many different pieces to choose from, including the un-insulated version of the Tram Line. Do yourself a favor and check out the Tram Line, a super versatile, warm, and waterproof jacket!
