    Details

    Packable protection for the high places.

    The Marmot Men's Essence Jacket offers reliable waterproofing in a lightweight and highly compressible package for alpinists, backpackers, and trail runners. Marmot's NanoPro MemBrain equips the Essence with waterproofing that stays highly breathable for intense activities, and the fully taped seams enhance waterproofing by preventing rain and snow from seeping through. The jacket's athletic fit includes Marmot's Angel-Wing Movement for full range of motion, too, so you can run, hike, and climb without feeling restricted. Integrated cooling vents keep you comfy when you work up a sweat, and the moldable brim keeps the hood out of sight and conforms when stuffed in your backpack.

    God sent this jacket to me in a vision

    Fantastic! Lightweight and perfect for long arduous backpacking trips (or otherwise) were quality dependable lightweight products are key. If you have this jacket on, you will not be rained upon. Well, aqua touching your body that is. The vents do there job and the single pocket for a map or phone is fine and dandy. Thank you gearhead Sarah for leading me to this product. S M I L E S

    Gear Lightweight Rain Jacket.

    I bought hthis jacket as a last resort rain jacket that is always in my bag. It weighs next to nothing, and you will never know its in your bag. The trade off is that there is no pockets on the side, and there is no hem cinch. If you know it is going to rain, its worth it to bring a jacket with more features, but for everything else, its great. It does great in wind, it sheds water like a husky sheds hair, and its breath ability is fantastic.

    Wore for a week of ski touring in Alps. Chose this over many bulkier jackets due to low weight, small stuff size and good visibility (bright lichen). Did not disappoint. Fit well over long sleeve base layer then either a Nano puff jacket or Nano vest. Found good breathability on the ups and arm pit vents seem to work (no pit zips). Single chest pocket fine for a bar or camera. Paired with OR Trailbreaker pants which have lots of pockets. I always had a pack so no issue of needing more pockets. Easy on and off with full zip and just elastic wrists so no velcro fiddling. Stuffs easily into pack. Cuts wind well, quiet and a little bit of stretch. Stayed dry in snow, mist and light rain but had no downpours. Hood fits a ski helmet but barely. Easily fits under helmet. Abrasion resistance fine for skiing but not burly enough for rock climbing. Will use for hiking, paddling and mt biking. Solid low weight piece that is much more than a Ghost Whisper, Houdini or Helium but not a full parka. In January I would take more, in June maybe less.

    Great Lightweight Rain/Wind Jacket

    I bought this jacket a month ago and used it on a Joshua Tree backpack trip for five days. Though we didn't have any rain, we did have significant wind and it worked great for that. It is light, compact and well made. I look forward to trying it out in the rain, and based on the construction details, it looks up to the task.

    Average

    Bought this to replace my old Zpacks jacket which finally fell apart after a few years. I wore it for a cool (55-60 deg) San Diego hike, did not rain . . . was little disappointed . . . I' m going to return it and get another Zpack
    Pros: very lightweight, good hood design, surprisingly good movement given tight fit, pocket placement allows for good access with backpack on.
    Cons: I'm not a big guy but was tight on me. Sleeves so tight that might limit what you can wear underneath it: rec. 1 size bigger when ordering. I got hot/sweaty on a cool day, no pack, easy hike: tight fit didn't help, liner gets sticky on arms, needs better venting (how about pit zips instead of nonfunctional pit slits?? Don't like elastic at wrists -- cinch cords would be better, more durable solution.

    So, not a bad but not a good ultralightweight rain coat. Would not take much for Marmot to fix it. Certainly, cheaper than some other coats out there (Zpacks) but you get what you pay for I guess . . . .

    Excellent

    Got this around 1 minutes nth so ago. Everything about is great from the weight to its usefulness. Was caught in a shower recently and came through unscathed with no drop of water on me at all.
