Marmot Baffin Insulated Jacket - Men's
Bring the warmth and leave the weight behind when you pack the Marmot Men’s Baffin Insulated Jacket. Designed for lightweight missions in wet, alpine terrain, the Baffin’s PrimaLoft Sport insulation, which provides warmth even when wet, makes it an ideal choice for belaying at the crags or as a mid-layer on alpine routes or backcountry ski tours.

although it doesnt have the luster of a lawn waste bag, its still pretty shiny...i would say like my hair after not washing it for a couple days.

In terms of warmth and breathability, how does this compare to a fleece? (Like Polartec 200 for example). Mostly to be worn under a shell (Ride Rainier jacket) for snowboarding.

Sleeves too long...
April 4, 2011
Just got the Citronelle Mens Medium Baffin in the mail. I am 5'9'' and 160lbs. The jacket seems like it is everything it should be, except for one problem, the sleeves are quite long. They extent to the tips of my outstretched fingers. Unfortunately, this one is going back.

The MH is going to be a good bit heavier, if that matters to you. The MH will resists tearing, rips and the like better but it will not be at all water resistant. the Marmot will do a better of job of shedding light water, though as you may know synthetic still maintains its warmth fairly well even when wet. as for warmth, there isnt much difference. It comes down to what it will be sued for, if it is going to take a beating i say MH but if it is going to be for use under a jacket and or just walking around, marmot may be the ticket

I'm wondering about how thick the insulation is. I see other jackets list a spec for the amount of insulation, 50g, 100g, 400g, etc...
Where about would this be?

When giving details of the product it would be nice to add the
length of this jacket. What is it?
And, if this jacket does not have a double zipper (being able to open the zipper from top or bottom) then it shouuld have one
don't you think?

The Jacket's center back length is 28" for a size Medium, which is an athletic cut - less than full coverage.
This jacket doesn't have a double zipper, probably to reduce weight as this is Marmots ultralight synthetic jacket.
Most Synthetic insulated jackets don't have a double zipper. One of the few that does is the Millet Belay Device
Hope that was a help

curious about the insulation according to Marmot's site this jacket is thermal r eco. If that is true, how is this jacket different than the Marmot Cauldron.
November 16, 2010
This jacket is indeed thermal R eco - and it weighs 13oz instead of the stated 10. The only difference between this and the Cauldron is the weight of the fabric and insulation.
The Cauldron is a heavier weight, lower quality jacket meant for more casual wear. It has fleece lined pockets, zip in compatibility and a heavier face fabric.
The Baffin is more of an ultralight jacket. Minimalist features in order to save weight with a lighter face fabric and zipper.
hope that helps
