I've a couple of thoughts to offer.
Despite some searching I've found little mention of the Sabre online.
I looked, as being a Macpac fan from way back, the Sabre was the first jacket I looked at.
There is reams of positive feedback however on the Granity.
Coupled with RonKs first hand knowledge and recommendation I found it an easy decision as I too tend to agonise for extended periods of time over purchase decisions.
Whist I'm confident the Sabre is a good product there was just too much evidence of the Marmot being a great one to ignore.
Moments ago I found and bought:
