Great jacket

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

Got this somewhat older technology jacket for hot Florida downfalls. Needed complete rain protection plus breathability. This jacket has both.

Tested in two heavy rains. Waterproofing was excellent, as expected. But, breathability, in a Florida "rain", (ie, deluge), with accompanying humiditidy, was outstanding. After a 30 minute walk with my Golden Retriever, I was much more comfortable than he. And, I'm talking flood conditions.

I highly recommend for tropical rains.

Pretty good - a little overweight

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

I've owned this jacket for two seasons and probably worn it for 20 or 30 days during that time. I use it as a rain jacket for lowland hikes and as my shell for easy spring and summer mountaineering objectives.

I've been happy with the performance overall. I like the way Marmot fits, especially over other layers. I bought a large, and the length is good (I'm 6'2"). There's plenty of room to fit other layers underneath, especially because I have a thinner build to start with.

I've never owned a real GoreTex jacket (above my price point) but I've been happy enough with Membrain Strata that I don't feel the need to upgrade right now. It is waterproof and breathes ok - especially with pit zips. When I do upgrade, it will be to save weight. This is a "Cadillac" jacket - comfy, but not the lightest out there for its performance level.

I am pleased with the durability. The DWR has lasted pretty well, and I have had no problems with leakage or tears. The great cuff adjustment strap is beginning to fray a little bit but that is the only thing I've noticed.

Make sure you don't put it away with the bill folded at all or the stiffener in the brim will stay that way for a long time.

Serves it purpose. Looks sharp.

For a Arizona native living in the South, rain is a new thing for me. This is my first rain jacket, and it's great. The black looks super sharp. Was asked where I got it when I was out to dinner tonight. I ordered a medium at first but exchanged for a small (after a month of having the medium, thanks Backcountry! - excellent customer service). I'm 5'9 150lbs. I'd say I'm a small frame. I order shirts with a size of 15/32.

The jacket is great but...

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

The jacket is really good. The material is top quality and its water protecting capabilities are top-notch. I have an issue with the removable hood though. It is not very well designed and the velcro seems weak. There are creases in the material that prevent the zipper of the hood to be completely covered and water can go to your head and back through them in a strong storm. I like the product and content with the purchase nevertheless.

High and Dry in Rocky Mtn rain.

I used this Jacket backpacking for a few days in RMNP. It rained on us every afternoon/ early evening for more than a few hours. It kept me dry and comfortable both days. My instincts told me to go with a more robust jacket for this trip, and I'm glad I did! Thanks Marmot!

Great Jacket

    I'm 6'1 and approx 92kg and this jacket is a great fit. It's large enough to fit a thick fleece and perhaps even a thicker warmer jacket underneath.

    The design is great but I'm actually a little unsure how to pack it into the pocket? I've tried but the outcome is not exactly small and compact. Anyone help out here?

    From an aesthetics perspective, it's a real looker and is incredibly functional (for the '4 seasons in 1 day' weather of Melbourne, Australia).

    Buying from Back Country was a piece of cake, even when I had to cancel and then resubmit my order. The online chat folk are real people (or super-freaky humanoid computers!) and were extremely helpful. Highly recommend this site. Now, if only the postage to Australia wasn't so high, I'd buy all my gear here.

    Does well

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

    I just tested my jacket in the pouring rain. When I walk, I perspire heavily and I wanted something that would breath yet keep me dry. When I started to get really warm, I unzipped the pit zippers and was quite comfortable. I would recommend getting something to attach to the pit zipper tabs. Those things are so teensy that I had to take my gloves off to use the zipper. The hood bill stuck out enough to keep my glasses dry yet, by sizing the hood, I could see out the sides when turning my head. The jacket is light and packs small. It's also comfortable with the nice cloth around the cuffs and collar so your skin doesn't get chafed. I am quite pleased. Although I'm a woman, I got the men's jacket because I have long arms and the women's jacket sleeves are WAY too short.

    Survived a Malaysian thunderstorm

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Caught in the middle of a tropical thunderstorm for about 30 minutes. The fabric got wet but completely dry inside. Wish I had the pants too :-(

    Nice lightweight rain jacket

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    Have used the jacket for hiking, biking and casual wear. Stylish, solid construction that has kept me reasonably dry in heavy rain. My only complaint is the insertion pin gets jammed when connecting the zipper at the bottom.

    Solid jacket for moderate rain

      This jacket is good for moderate rain protection, but gets a bit saturated during brief downpours or prolonged time in the rain. It works great as a stylish rain coat for casual use and as light rain cover for a overcast day hike when you don't want to bring the expensive technical shell.

      It works, but it's not for me

        It's a well built jacket and it held up to moderate rain pretty well. It required the occasional nikwax-ing, but nothing out of the ordinary to keep it in good shape. The thing that I found appealing about this jacket was the lack of velcro down the front, so when using this as an everyday shell there wasn't anything to get worn out. But, a couple of things about this jacket irked me. The high collar was nice when the wind would pick up, but at all other times it would just flop around or hang around my neck. Also, the hood stowing and removal system seems overly complex and bulky with two big velcro tabs and a zipper around the back. As an everyday shell, I would not recommend it, but if you're only planning on breaking it out when the weather turns a little nasty then this is probably a good choice.
