Description

When a little rain falls.

In your pack or on your torso, the Marmot Men's DriClime Vest won't weigh you down or cause you to cook on a hike, climb, or backcountry tour. Thanks to the DWR coating and breathable DriClime membrane, you won't suffer like a steamed clam at a New England bake when it starts to sprinkle.

Perfect vest

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Excellent vest for what I wanted.....needed an extra layer for cold weather snowboarding, and this vest delivers perfectly. Have a fleece vest I was using, but found I overheated pretty quickly - no problem with the Marmot one however. Also used it on a couple snowshoe treks and trail runs - again, super comfortable and warm without overheating.....a big plus is that it repels light rain as well.
Oh, sizing: I'm 5'10", 180lbs, muscular build, and the medium fits me perfectly.

Great for layering

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Works very well as a layer on top of merino wool and underneath a shell. Does well to keep you warm, but not overly heavy either. Zip it up all the way and it also protects your neck nicely.

Too tight, too long!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Loved this vest so much I bought three of them a few years ago. Even with three I'm wearing them out cause they're great year round. Or were great... This newer version - tighter fitting. Longer in torso so it has to be pulled down over my but to the point I can't even access my pants front pockets. Worst yet, the elastic around the sleeves is too tight. The only thing that went right was the zippers on the lower pockets. Have to return it - should have listened to the reviewer who said it was tight fitting. Why would Marmot change the product so drastically? Any designers listening? - More vests with chest pockets for cell phones!

Funny how different cuts work for different people. To me the new cut is a big improvement! I actually ordered the XL based on some comments here, but had to return it for the large. For sizing, I'm 6' 3" 190,a 43-inch chest, 32-inch waist.

mine does have a chest pocket. maybe those who designed this year's model were listening to you! i agree it is close fitting, but that makes it layer better and keep wind out better at the arm holes. i think that was the intent anyway. plus, armholes are elasticized, to stretch.

Runs small

Ordered the XL, too small in chest and arms! I normally wear L or XL in Patagonia or north face vests and jackets, 44 in suit jacket/blazer.

Deceivingly warm. Primo layering piece.

I have both a DriClime vest and jacket. If I had to choose one over the other I would probably take the jacket, but that isn't to speak disparagingly of this vest. Its easily one of the most functional layering pieces you can own. It cuts wind like few layers can, and adds quite a bit of warmth, particularly underneath another layer.

In some ways I prefer the vest, as it layers very well under a shell or insulating layer, while still breathing very well. A great setup is a long sleeve merino base with this over it, and maybe an insulating layer or hard shell in your pack in case the temperature is going to drop. With that setup you could handle a very wide variety of conditions.

The functionality of both the DriClime vest and jacket are untouched. I know a few folks who swear by their DriClimes, claiming its the most important and functional layering piece that they own.

The fabric is akin to satin or rayon. Its very slick, and has a great feel to it. While it weighs 7 ounces, it feels like it weighs half that or less, and it packs down to nothing. You can wad the vest up into your hand... about the size of a baseball.

I would agree that it's deceivingly warm -- lighter than a fleece vest and as warm, blocks wind better, packs smaller. Takes up so little space, I take it along even when I don't expect to need it (but sometimes do).
