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.
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
