    They should have named it the Force Field.

    The Marmot Men's Ether Driclime Jacket takes care of you during spring squalls with two layers of moisture protection. The inner layer of Driclime is soft to the touch and specializes in pulling moisture away from your skin to eliminate sweaty clamminess. The outer layer is a breathable nylon that is also wind- and water-resistant to keep Mother Nature out. Mesh underarm vents help your body regulate temperature, and the attached roll-up hood gives you added protection.

    I won't leave home without it

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

    This coat will come with me on every hike and fishing trip. It is warm, light and offers good protection from wind and weather. Excellent breathability and packs small. Comfy

    One of the best jackets I own

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

    I'm a huge fan of the Driclime jackets. My Driclime Windshirt has been to hell and back and is still one of my favorite pieces of gear, but I got to thinking that I would like it a lot better if it had a hood...thus the Ether Driclime jacket. It combines all the features that made the Windshirt great, then added handwarmer pockets and a hood without adding too much weight.

    A quick word on the fit...the jacket is an athletic cut so it will fit a little trim. For those like me who are a little on the pudgy side thanks to too much junk food in our younger, more foolish days, you might want to size up. I normally wear a large in Marmot jackets, but I went with the XL on this one. Ended up being a good move, as the fit feels the same as my regular-cut Marmot jackets.

    One of my favorite things about the Driclime jackets is how warm they are in contrast to their weight, and the Ether Driclime is no exception. I've worn it in temps down to the low 30's with just a t-shirt underneath and was plenty comfortable. The nylon outer fabric does a good job of blocking wind as well as light rain showers, and the inner fabric wicks moisture well when the activity level picks up. The pit vents add to the already great breathability as well.

    The Ether also packs fairly compactly into the chest pocket, so it takes up far less space than the fleece I usually pack as a mid layer, and it's just as warm, and half the weight as well. While I could sort of do this with the Windshirt, the chest pocket on that jacket wasn't really designed for that, and while you could use a stuff sack, who really wants to do that?

    Overall, while the Ether probably won't replace my Windshirt as my go-to cold weather running jacket, it's definitely going into my arsenal for backcountry trips. Its packability, warmth-to weight ratio and overall versatility make this truly one of the best jackets I own, ranking right up there with my beloved Windshirt.



    Best Jacket I own

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    This is a great jacket, it dries very fast and breaks the wind. Awesome for high output missions in not so nice weather, doesn't feel clammy and breaths like nobodies business.

    Love love love

    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: large

    Ok...I must admit that I absolutely love this jacket. I have owned the original DriClime Windshirt for over a decade, and that jacket has seen it all. I have used it as a layer when skiing, for commuting on my bike in cool weather, and as a stand alone jacket on cool summer nights. Now this one comes with hand pockets and a hood!

    What is to love about this jacket? First off the jacket blocks wind well. It packs very small, making it a no brainer when packing for an adventurous trip. This jacket breaths very well, which is awesome for someone like me who sweats...A Lot. In the arm pits you have great venting, and the hood provides slight protection from light precipitation. The best pocket is large, and is made of mesh so you can use it as a vent.

    If you want a lightweight jacket that packs small, and blocks wind then this is a stellar option.

    Marmot Ether Driclime Jacket

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:Runs small

    I ordered an XL first and realized that it is slim fit , I'm 5'10" and about 200 Lbs and it was a bit tight in the upper chest and shoulder area not brutally tight but I don't like any restricted movement while climbing so ordered an XXL and this one fits like most XL sizes.

    Disappointed

    • Fit:True to size

    I am very disappointed with this purchase and jacket. Jacket does not breathe well, zippers constantly snag and the chest pocket mesh has a small rip or flaw already. I have only worn it 3-4 times and not even used this pocket. Item has been sent to the back of my closet and I will go back to the 15 year old North Face that this jacket was supposed to replace.

    I currently own three Marmot DriClime pieces and have NO complaints. As an avid outdoorsman (hunter, hiker, teleskier,fisherman) I cannot think of one instance that I wouldnt want this piece of gear with me. It is light, packs small, windproof, water resistant, breathable and dries in a flash. Its the layer that you cant be without no matter what the weather.

    I 2nd, perfect for running

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit:True to size

    ordered the cobalt blue XL. I am 5'11, 215lbs, big frame...thought it fit well, a little snug but all in all, how I like it for running...ran in about 15 degree weather, little breeze, just two layers underneath and it was perfect in protecting from the cold.



    Very lightweight

    Perfect for running

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    I use this jacket to run in the Midwest; it gets very cold and windy here in the winter and I don't want to be running in a winter coat. I've used it from the teens to the forties (Fahrenheit, obviously) with just a base layer underneath and its excellent design really shows. I don't overheat thanks to its lightness (under a pound, I think), pit vents, and unparalleled driclime wicking. The windbreaking nylon cuts through wind and is surprisingly resilient; it's ripstop. The hand warmer pockets are great for glove storage, and the hood can fit over a cap (or under a helmet), and it won't blow off if you zip it up all the way. The hood in this position does a great job of holding headphones in place. I used it ~4 times a week for the past month before needing to wash it (got stinky after a while). I haven't been able to test the DWR in the field yet, but holding the sleeves under the faucet has left my arms bone dry. Doesn't get wet; dries super fast even if it does (from inside OR out). I've found myself taking the jacket for a run even if I probably don't need it; it's so light I barely notice it if I have to wrap it around my waist. I'll definitely take it to the beach or any future hiking trips, and it will definitely be my mid layer on any skiing trips - the jacket's temp range is incredible, and I love it. Most useful garment I own. Fits true to size, but a little tight by design - works best when close to the body.

    good stuff.

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    Love all the driclime stuff I've tried, and I've found this piece to be the most useful for me. For the price you can't go wrong with the basic Marmot windshirt (still got mine!), but if you want a few more bells and whistles like a waist draw cord, more pockets and a hood, this is a good move. Packs down small, lightweight, surprisingly warm, windproof, water-resistant and very, very breathable. Like the basic windshirt this a great mid-layer in a variety of temps and with the hood, pockets, etc., it's a very useful stand-alone jacket as well. I wear this thing on a regular basis about 3/4 of the year, and I have found it to be useful for running in extreme conditions.

    EPIC

      I accumulated a bunch of gear for an excursion to Alaska and this turned out to be the best piece I brought. It was warm, wind proof, water proof, and light weight. The inner fleece made it cozy, the good was essential, and in love that you can stuff it into it's own chest pocket for easy storage. It comes out wrinkled tho, so if you're not down with that, don't use that feature. This coat is awesome.

      Disappointing

      • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it

      I returned this jacket because it reminded me of old, low-tech, 2-layer fleece / nylon jackets I owned in the 80s, and not in a good way.

      It is basically just a nylon shell with a free-floating brushed poly zip-t that hangs inside. I expected a modern, two-layer laminated fabric, but found what is in fact two garments stitched together only at the wrists, hem, and neck.

      It felt and looked lumpy, the nylon was noisy in motion, and it had no stretch. The wrists and hood elastic had no adjustability.

      Frankly, I'd rather just wear a poly base layer and single-layer nylon windbreaker and have the option to remove each layer independently.

      I had intended the jacket as a wind-resistent yet breathable layer for backcountry skiing & hiking.

      Instead I got the Mountain Hardwear Onata Softshell.

      It doesn't have a hood and weighs 4 ounces more, but the breathability, DWR, adjustable cuffs, fit, feel, & stretch of the Onata are just what I was looking for.

      Fit notes: I'm 6'1", 160lbs with 35" long arms, and the XL I ordered was way too baggy. According to the Marmot size chart, I was between a Medium and Large size, but those sizes were out of stock at that time.

      Perfect option

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      I was looking for a jacket that I could wear during work and not get too hot, but also something that I could put under and hardshell layer. This is perfect for both. It's super light, packs down well, and keeps you warm. Perfect by it's self for a light jacket or great for a base layer in the winter.

      Incredible jacket, sizing wrong

        This was to be my 2nd, because 1st is so great and this new one has hood. Best all around jacket I've ever owned. New one ordered same size as old one, but could barely zip new one while old accomodates multiple layers under.
        Will probably try to find locally to check size before reordering, becaue I don't like paying return postage for something that appears sized wrong.

        Incredible product - sizing off

          Have owned a driclime for several years and think it's the best so couldn't pass up ether on sale and hood is great idea. However, jacket too small in XL despite my meeting xl specs and old one being xl. Could barely zip over chest. Also note specs fail to note there are two zippered side pockets which are nice to have.

          How water resistant is the jacket? How long before it soaks through?

          Basically if a jacket is water-resistant instead of being waterproof it will repel water but at less than 10,000 mm. Typically most companies will not report any test findings or numbers unless it meets or exceeds that 10,000 mm rating. Anything under 5,000 mm is not considered water-resistant so all we can determine is that its going to fall within that range.

          Hey Jon,

          Outdoor Gear Lab reviewed this windshirt in comparison with other similar models. It was reviewed as being one of the lesser water-resistant pieces in a light rain. Though it's one of the more durable and versatile pieces. Check it out: http://www.outdoorgearlab.com/Wind-Breaker-Jacket-Reviews/Marmot-DriClime-Windshirt

          I'm 6 feet tall and weigh 158 pounds. I'm usually a medium but should I get a large here?

          Hey Rajesh,



          Thanks for the question. While other factors can come in to play such as how much layering you'll be doing underneath and other measurements, based on the vitals you gave I would go with a large if layering is involved and a medium if you want an athletic fit and have narrower shoulders.

          I am 5'10", 220lbs. Not exactly athletic build, but I am wondering if I need an XL or not. I'd hate to buy a Large and return it because its too tight. Can anyone give me helpful info?

          I bought this about a month ago and I love it. I'm glad I ordered a size up (Im somewhat 'thick'). If you keep moving, this will keep you warm. I carry it on dayhikes constantly, but because it's so thin, be careful if you're going somewhere you may have to go through thick brush with thorns or briars. I got it snagged several times on small thorns and I thought it put a hole in it. No tear was detected, but I won't do that again. I'll wear a thicker shell next time. I wore a Columbia longsleeve wicking shirt under a Columbia short sleeve wicking shirt, and had this over it, and I was warmly hiking in low 40F degree temps. For bike rides, hiking, running...it's great. Best piece of outdoor gear I own, because it performs well, very very lightweight and versatile.
