Marmot Alpinist Jacket - Women's

Up in the alpine hiding from bad weather isn't an option--you need to be prepared to face it head on, which is when the Marmot Alpinist Women's Jacket comes in handy. It's the burliest hard shell in Marmot's line, designed to stand up the serious rain, wind, sleet and snow that pounds you when there's nowhere else to go. The nylon fabric is laminated to a three-layer (i. e. extra rugged) waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex Pro membrane, all the seams are fully taped, and each and every zipper is water-resistant to keep you dry when you're spending long, exposed hours in weather that makes most people curl up under the bed and tell themselves the monsters are all in their imagination. Marmot cut the Alpinist slightly roomier than the athletic-fitting Speed Light to accommodate fleecy or downy layers, making it a more versatile cold-weather shell and included a DriClime-lined chin guard to keep your face cozy. A helmet-compatible laminate-brimmed Gale Force hood with an easy ERG adjustment system keeps the weather from sneaking in around your face, and underarm zips help you vent heat when the sun sticks its head out from behind the storm clouds. The Alpinist has pack-compatible hand pockets, too, along with Marmot's Angel-Wing ergonomic movement that makes for awesome climbing, hiking, skiing, and backpacking, no matter the weather.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
