nice spring jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This jacket has a nice feminine flattering fit. Unlined so it's not for winter, but does great in the rain,water beads right off. The length is perfect for me, I ordered XS. 4"11" 100lbs. I wish they had more colors. I have a black but would've loved a beige too. Please keep making more of these jackets...

Why Velcro?

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

For those who were looking at this vs the Marmot Destination Jacket, this one is the ultra-packable light version without a lining. The cut is nice, the material feels excellent. My two qualms are:

1. Velcro on the pockets. It's annoying because the pockets are essentially always 'shut' and I'm a hands-in-pockets person. It's just annoying enough to not be able to get open with one hand easily - except you have to do it for both pockets of course. The velcro really isn't necessary as there are zips on the pockets too.

2. The fabric is so light (in weight and thickness) that it doesn't fall as nicely as the Destination Jacket. If you have a layer underneath you will see all the bumps and unevenness. I also think wind would whip it up easily.

Also, the backcountry rep told me the two jackets are the same length - the Destination has a few extra inches on the Highland. I walk through pouring rain with the Destination and knee-high boots, and the only part of me that gets wet are my knees - so I like those extra few inches.

If not for the velcro on the pockets, I would have kept them both. I love that it is a high quality rain jacket that packs down super tiny, and the brim on the hood is a nice touch.

Sizing: 5'6, 100lbs, S fits nicely with room for medium layers if needed. Cut stays nice and feminine. I usually get XS but chose S for the sleeve and coat length.

Precisely as expected

Exactly as expected: nice styling, attention to detail, good rain protection (urban environment tested only), limited wind and temperature protection. Comfy soft collar lining.

Does this coat have velcro on the front...

Does this coat have velcro on the front tab which covers the zipper?
