Description

Excessively featured jackets just slow you down—keep it simple and lightweight with the Mica storm shell.

In favor of the Mica Jacket's feathery, six-ounce weight, Marmot engineers ditched the bells and burned all the whistles. The still highly capable 20k-rated weatherproof fabric allows this jacket to fend off three seasons of nasty, mountain weather. And despite its minimalist design, fast-packers, hikers, and gram-counting backpackers will find comfort beneath this jacket's breathable membrane and articulated fit.
  • Waterproof breathable MemBrain Strata keeps you dry in brutally-wet weather and allows sweaty moisture to escape so you feel comfortable, not clammy, underneath this jacket
  • Duralite Zonal Reinforcements improve overall shell durability
  • Fully taped seams add to overall weatherproofing
  • Angel-Wing Movement describes the articulated cut of the arms, which gives you a full range of motion without lifting the hem of this jacket and exposing your waist
  • Gale-Force Hood is adjustable for fit and has a laminated brim to keep rain out of your face
  • Large Pack Pockets and smaller chest pocket provide quick-access storage for essential hiking, climbing or backpacking gear

Excellent Ultra Light Option

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

Given the low carry-weight of this rain jacket - it's hard to beat if you're wanting to minimize your load. It packs down well and leaves a minimal footprint in your pack. You would think that given the thinness of the material it wouldn't work as well as some other comparable jackets - but, it does the trick very well.
I field-tested in the Smokies and got doused on the AT. The jacket performed well and kept me dry as any other jacket I've owned. The values of this jacket are the super-low weight and high quality workmanship.
The only suggestion for the manufacturer is with the ventilation. It definitely could be better. You have to open up the pockets to get any fresh air. Internal wetness built up from body heat gets trapped. Perhaps future designs might include a few armpit holes or slightly longer pocket zippers (pit zips would add weight).

Gets the Job Done

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

Great fitting rain-jacket for those who are of athletic build. Have worn it about ~5 times so far in the rain and it's essentially an umbrella for your body. The jacket is very light so do no purchase it if you're looking for something other than a rain jacket.

Essential Piece of Gear

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

I take this jacket on everyone MTB and trail running outing. Balls up to the size of small grape fruit and fits nicely into the bottom of a small backpack. I've even used it for an extended summer hiking in the arctic circle where it rained 5 out of the 7 days - amazing water proof properties. Only complaint is that it wears out fast. I got 2 years of steady use out of my mine until the seams started to fall apart. I suppose this is expected from such a minimalist piece of gear. Will buy another one after my current one falls apart (which is very soon!).

Perfect minimalist go-to raingear

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

I've been backpacking for 38 years and to this day I still don't head out on a trip where I KNOW it's going to rain. With that said I don't let a forecast for occasional showers stop me and the weather in the Northwest is unpredictable so I always carry raingear for those few times when I'll need it. After carrying full-on raingear from The North Face, Montbell, Mountain Hardwear and others, two years ago I picked up a Marmot Mica and since then it's always in my pack, even on dayhikes. It's light (my size XL weighs 7.8 oz) and folds into it's own inside-out pocket. Unlike some ultra-tight stuff sacks, the pocket is large enough that the jacket flattens out some when packed so it's easy to push into a cranny in your pack. When it does rain the jacket works as designed and keeps me perfectly dry. I normally wear a size Large but I bought a size XL Mica because I wanted to be able to put it on no matter how many layers I have on - and it is roomy enough to fit over my Montbell puffy down parka. The Mica has a large hood (large enough for a helmet?) but unlike other rain jackets, the hood on the Mica is easily adjustable for a great fit whether or not I'm wearing a fleece hat or baseball cap. All in all the Mica is the ideal fit for my backpacking needs and it's one of the few pieces of gear where I can't imagine looking for something lighter or better.

No Underarm Vents or Chest Pocket

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

Description is misleading. Perhaps they changed the design since I bought mine (Sept 2012), but my jacket does not have the underarm vents or chest pocket mentioned in the description. I don't see any in the pictures, either.

Overall, the jacket is good. It's very light, compresses down to almost nothing, and the fabric is pretty breathable. The fit is great--whatever the Angel-Wing Movement cut is, it really works.

Hey Alex, thanks for the heads up!
I think we got the content wrong for this jacket, it shouldn't have pit zips according to Marmot's website. I'll try to get that corrected, thanks!

Responded on

I was just at Marmot store in Aspen, Co.
The jacket does have zip pits.
There is also two front pockets that can be opened to whatever degree to regulate ventilation thru zip pits.
Maybe you are looking at an older version?

Responded on

Also, the newest version has reinforcements in both the shoulders and lower sides for pack. Nice feature if your a trail runner.

Chris, are you describing the Super Mica rain coat ?

Does the hood stow into the collar?

Super light, not working for me in the rain though

This is a really light jacket that compresses well. It's nice to know I can stash it easily and without adding any noticeable weight, even on a day hike. It will even fit in your pants pocket if you want. I've had problems with the water proof factor though. I've had it for 1 year now, and it is not waterproof at all anymore. 5 minutes in light rain and it is already soaked through to the inside. Could it be possible mine is defective? I thought it had a 20,000 rating, and I find it hard to believe that this model would be that weak when exposed to the element it's designed to protect against.

you should try Nikwax, it will definitely help :)
