Looking for lightweight weatherproof shell...

Posted on

Looking for lightweight weatherproof shell for hiking. Have had a good run with Marmot in the past but unsure of sizing for this. Will need it to go over soft shell and mid layers for work in up to -20C. Would normally stick with XL which aligns with TNF soft shell. Any ideas ? Im 6 ft - 220 lbs.

I love Marmot and have a number of their jackets. You'll probably be fine with the XL, but it may be beneficial to get layered up with everything and take a chest measurement. I'm 6'1" 180lbs and wear a large in a jacket/outershell.

I can concur with Matt on this one. The Marmot Minimalist is a reasonably relaxed fit that would be comparable to a similar jacket from The North Face. Neither of these companies goes very trim with their light shells. You should be solid with an XL.
