With its waterproof Gore-Tex PacLite material, the Marmot Women's Minimalist Jacket brings you ultra lightweight, waterproof breathable protection. Gore-Tex PacLite material is guaranteed to keep you dry and contributes to this mountaineering shell's scant 12-ounce weight. This little wonder saves room in your backpack and provides instant shelter when the storm rolls in. You'll enjoy a wide range of movement thanks to the women's-specific fit and Angel-Wing Movement, which increases mobility without causing the jacket to ride up. Throw back the adjustable hood and bust open the Minimalist Jacket's pitzips for a little breather when the storm slows to a drizzle and the temps rise.
Bought this as a gift for my wife and though at first she was not thrilled as a rain jacket is not a very romantic gift... but after a few uses she loves it. Originally she used it for hiking only but she grew to love it so much she uses it for everything. Since its hers I can't give a very technical review but from looking at it the quality is very topnotch and she says it breathes well.
