Santa Rosa, CA: Marmot’s Variant jacketâ€”new for fall 2010â€”has received National Geographic Adventure’s â€œGear of the Yearâ€ award this month. This fleece-meets-insulated hybrid jacket is perfect for cold weather layering, but it also performs and looks great as a stand alone piece.
The Variant ($140) is constructed with Marmot’s new Thermal Râ„¢ Eco insulation on the front to keep your core area warm. PolartecÂ® Power StretchÂ® fleece runs throughout the shoulders, arms and side panels for superior athletic performance.
â€œThe Variant definitely stood out when we were looking for innovative designs that could take us into the colder fall temperatures–and perform well,â€ explains Steve Casimiro, contributing editor of National Geographic Adventure and founder of Adventure Journal. â€œThis hybrid offers superior warmth-to-weight value in a stylish, functional design,â€ he adds.
The Variant comes in both men’s and women’s styles and is available this fall. For more information check out www.marmot.com
