Stylish protection.

Maybe it's the funky smell or maybe it's the multiple repair patches, but there's something about your mountaineering shell that doesn't quite fit in when you're your back in the city. Built with the technical fabrics, the Marmot Women's Elan Jacket delivers the protection you've come to expect with a style that you can take anywhere.

  • Marmot MemBrain Strata 2.5 waterproof breathable fabric provides 20K-rated protection to shed wet weather without trapping in excess moisture and heat
  • The 2.5-layer lamination uses very small non-organic particles layered on top of Marmot MemBrain to enhance durability and breathability
  • Fully taped seams reduce weight and seal out moisture
  • Tie belt adds flair and snap closures seal out the weather

City Chic with Trail Technology

I love this jacket so far. The trench style is nicer to be able to wear to work but also has amazing rain protection. I tried it out during a outdoor party that ended up being quite rainy yet I stayed very dry and comfortable. I have larger hips so the A line cut flatters my shape with out being too tight in the hips. I typically have to order up a size in longer jackets, but I was able to order my normal size in this jacket. It fits true to size aside from being slightly flared at the hip. It has a double zipper and zipper hand pockets. I also really like the added details in the cuff snaps and hood pulls. Only con I have so far is I wish there was an inner media pocket of some sort. But for the sale price and $15 credit I got from BackCountry it is well worth the price.

Sad it didn't fit quite right!

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 4"
    Weight: 140 lbs
    Size Purchased: Medium

It's true to size, maybe a bit to the larger side, but it didn't fit me quite right anyhow. The A-line cut was not for me, as it flares out a bit too much at the hips. As someone who is 5'4, the waist hit a little low and thus, slides up and puffs the upper portion of the jacket out, making it look frumpy and not fitted. I love the cuff button accents and the hood is definitely big enough. Sad it didn't fit quite right. I also wish it had buttons instead of just a zipper for lighter weather!

is this jacket both waterproof AND breathable?

Yes. Specs per the manufacturer:
Fabric Waterproof Rating 20,000 mm
Fabric Breathability Rating 20,000 g/m²

Is the cloud a true white or more of an off white color?

Great city-to-country jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I purchased the Elan in black for a recent trip overseas. My activities on this journey included professional activities in a very urbane, buttoned-down setting, as well as some hiking and walking in the countryside -- all in a chilly, very windy and intermittently rainy season.

I didn't want to carry multiple jackets, and this one proved nearly perfect all around. It looked trim and tailored in the conference hall, not like a hiking shell (the shiny black metal snaps at the wrists are a nice touch in this regard). Outdoors, it blocked the rain completely, and the wind as well as any uninsulated polyester shell could hope to do.

I sized up so that it was easy to layer warm garments underneath and still have the jacket fit around my hips (always problematic with technical clothing).

Particular pros: Top down/bottom up zipper. Breathed well despite not having any vents, lining or pit zips. Hand warmer pockets are inset rather than patch-style, maintaining a neat appearance. A-line cut.

Particular con: Only two pockets. For the original price point, and given that the style is casual/city oriented, a Napoleon pocket for a transit pass, as well as an interior zippered pocket to secure cash, ID, and keys, ought to have been part of the design IMHO.

Still and all, I'm happy with the purchase and the performance.

is the Marmot Elan Jacket lined?

is the Marmot Elan Jacket lined?

No. It is a very thin ultra-light waterproof shell. If you wish, you can wear a fleece under it for extra warmth. The lack of a lining allows this jacket to pack down very small. Great for travel!

Is the hood detachable?

Is the hood detachable?

The hood rolls up into the collar, so there is no need to detach it.
