Marmot Aegis Jacket Wins 2009 “Gear of the Year” Award
in Outside Buyer's Guide

Santa Rosa, CA – Marmot's Aegis jacket with MemBrain® Strata™ -- a new 2.5 layer laminated technology introduced this spring -- has won Outside Magazine's 2009 “Gear of the Year” Award in the "shell" category. Both the jacket and the award are featured in Outside Magazine's 2009 Summer Buyer's Guide, on newsstands April 29th.

The award-winning Aegis weighs in at just 14 ounces. It is an athletically inspired waterproof, breathable shell – perfect for all types of mountain and outdoor activities. The jacket has superior weather-beating performance; the MemBrain® Strata™ fabric sheds water and breathes easily to keep you dry.

"The well-priced Aegis ($140.00 USD) is tricked out with a thoughtful array of features—from the stashable hood to pit zips to small fleecy patches at the chin and back of the neck. But what really impressed us was how breathable it is," says Outside Buyer's Guide editor, Sam Moulton. "Usually, jackets in this price range have a tendency to get clammy quickly, but the Aegis kept us cool and dry in everything from a fast-moving and fierce Colorado rainstorm to an all-day drizzle in Alaska," he adds.
