Spidi Marathon and Ergo Jacket

i am not fashion model thin by any means. i am 5'10" tall and about 220 pounds. fairly round in the middle. can you suggest a jacket that would be THE all around textile jacket for me? i was thinking maybe the marathon. waterproof and windproof and essential.


Hi Frantic,

Marathon is a very versatile jacket, 3-layers Step-in-clothing system guarantee you maximum comfort in every condition. A better jacket for very cold weather, anyway, is the Ergo 365 Pro Jacket, which is now available in USA too. Both Marathon and Ergo 365 Pro are "3 in 1" jackets, but Ergo features an extraordinary external laminated 3-layers fabric, which elevates the performances under heavy conditions, and guarantees around 2 hours of waterproofness even once the internal membrane is removed.

For both models I would suggest you a XXL.

Thanks for your interest
