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

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!

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?

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?

Lightweight Rain Jacket

This is a great lightweight, no frills, breathable, totally waterproof rain jacket. Perfect for summer rainstorms and lightweight hiking/backpacking.

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.
