Be wary

I bought this jacket and loved it for its weight and feel, but it soaks through after about 30 minutes of rain and 3 months after I bought it, the lining delaminated. I think it is made for a light mist occasionally. Of course, Marmot gave me a credit for the jacket. But, I would be wary of buying this jacket.

For the best in waterproof rain wear, look for something made with GoreTex fabric. There are many brands who offer some of their garments made with this great material.
Patagonia makes some of their jacket with this; a friend of mine has Patagonia's Primo Down (of course it's a winter coat) which is totally warm, breathable, and actually waterproof (important for melting snow and drizzle.
Surprised about the quality issue for Marmot! Great that you got credit. B.C. is super great about returns/keeping there customers happy, and coming back!

^ Marmot rep Tim informed us the other day that Marmot was actually the FIRST brand to start using GoreTex as a material in their apparel. Although the Crystalline is not GoreTex, many of their products are.
