Excellent feather light shell for running

    Excellent shell for distance running. I am 6' tall, 165 lbs and I have a Large. The fit allows you to wear a light fleece top or regular tshirt underneath. The back hem hits halfway across your bottom so there is plenty of coverage and warmth. The chest pocket is convenient for ID/ credit card and has a loop for a key chain. The hood can be a little annoying ( not removable) but it can be rolled and there is a tab to hold it in place. It is not waterproof, but it really cuts the wind and will keep you dry in a heavy fog or sprinkles. It retains a little smell after you sweat in it a few times, but airs out quickly. The color is a brilliant bright blue. Overall a great jacket.

    Marmot Ion jacket- willow

      Got the Willow- it is more of a true green color, but still very pretty. Jacket is extremely lightweight and flexible. Kinda short for my liking (ends right at my hips), but I like jackets to be a bit long. I'm 5'2", 110 lbs and the XS fits fine- sleeves are good and long. Small is more comfy on me- just depends on how you like the jacket to fit. Haven't tested it in the rain yet.

      Great Light Jacket

        I have this jacket in a size small in a silver color. I bought it directly from Marmot so that might be why there is less colors here. Either way regardless of this this jacket is great. It is very lightweight and fit me perfectly I am short around 5 ft 1 and it ended around my waist. I wore this jacket in class 5 rapids on a rafting trip in Costa Rica and it didn't rip once when I fell into the water. It is very durable and kept me reasonably warm in the heavy rain.

        WTF, Willow?

          Everything about this jacket I absolutely love. It's great for XC with some Smartwool unders and a waterproof fleece. The only gripe that I have is that "willow" looks like a sage green, and it's definitely no where near that. It's a much brighter green. However, I don't hate it! It's still a great color, and is nice and visible in the backcountry.

          I am looking for a windproof jacket to...

          I am looking for a windproof jacket to wear during early morning cycles to work during spring, summer and early fall. I don't want anything too warm or anything that is going to stick to my skin if I get a little sweaty or if it is pouring out (I live in seattle- so chances are this jacket will see some rain). Any suggestions?

          Great choice for wind resistance, light weight and price. It's water resistant, but not water proof. Steady rain will make the jacket stick to your skin. Marmot Crystalline is 7 oz, windproof and waterproof. It's a new fabric that's highly breathable and will work a lot better in rain than a wind shell. I've worn both on a bike and can't say one is more breathable than the other. I guess it depends on how much you plan on using it in the rain.

          How well does this keep the wind off you?...

          How well does this keep the wind off you? I am looking for something to keep the chill off on a windy drizzly spring run.

          I would like to know how long this jacket...

          I would like to know how long this jacket is and if it is flexible.
