Not durable, don't like lining

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

The exterior material seems like it would snag easily on branches while trail running. Also, the lining bunches up while wearing. Was really hoping that I would like this jacket.

Nice try out in the Grand Canyon

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I bought this as a shed-layer for AZ hikes that start in the 30s-40s but get into the 60s or 70s pretty quickly. The jacket is light-weight yet was comfortable this weekend on the rim of the Grand Canyon in a range of conditions: 50 and mild, upper 30s-40s with wind gusts around 30-40 mph, and upper 20s with light snow snow/freezing rain (for short periods of time). It shed the frozen stuff pretty well and provided decent wind protection. I didn't wear it down the canyon (since it took less than an hour's descent for the temp to go from 40 to 80s), but it seems like it will hike well in the 30s-50s and then stow nicely in temps above 60. I think I found a good, light-weight, affordable hiking jacket for mid-range temps that will replace my heavier fleece as a shed/add layer for higher elevations and changing temps.

Can't live with the lining

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

I've used this jacket for a couple of weeks, but am returning it. It works great over a tighter-fitting base layer such as my "performance" fabric t-shirts. However, the "wicking" lining won't allow anything else to smoothly glide over it, specifically the button-up short-sleeved TNF casual shirts I wear to work, and the microfiber long-sleeved shirts I wear hiking. The short sleeves bunch up around my pits; the jacket is nearly impossible to put on over the long sleeved shirts. Too bad; it appears to be a very good jacket otherwise. 2-Stars for me, but could be much higher rating for you, depending upon what you plan to wear under it. As for sizing, I find it just slightly on the small side; I wouldn't recommend up-sizing unless you're really pushing to upper limit, or need to have a lot of layering room.

Amazing Jacket! You need one, or two!

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

After several rounds of trying on similar performance jackets; Northface, Marmot, Puma, Patagonia, etcetera, I finally stopped being OCD and settled on the Marmot Stride Jacket. I?m completely satisfied with this purchase and for the money I don?t think you?ll find a better quality jacket with all the features. This jacket is lightweight, yet very warm and comfortable whether you are working out on the trails or inside the gym. The styling is clean and the fit and finish is perfect. I will buy another color soon.

I have this jacket and love it; great for...

I have this jacket and love it; great for cool weather, etc. But now contemplating taking with me to Utah to ski as an outer layer (with a Rab fleece jacket underneath). Think it'll hold up? Worried that it's just too lightweight. Thanks.

Best Answer Responded on

Personally I wouldn't wear this for skiing anywhere. If you take a digger, brush a tree, get your jacket anywhere near your skis, etc. it seems like this baby would probably rip/not hold up in general to well. Also I think it is nice to have a hood on any jacket you are skiing in-even if you aren't wearing it I find that it helps to keep the back of your neck protected a bit (that's personal preference though). I'd personally suggest looking into any more "burley" shell jacket, even something as simple as a patagonia torrentshell or a softshell like the Mountain Hardwear Principia would be a better bet then this if you don't want to buy a dedicated ski jacket. If you're planning to ski a lot though I would honestly recommend looking into a more dedicated skiing shell, as I'm sure you'll come to appreciate the specific features such a jacket might offer.

Debating getting this or the Prodigy Jacket...

Posted on

Debating getting this or the Prodigy Jacket to use cross country skiing. Has anyone used this jacket for that purpose? Is the windstopper in the prodigy and the little bit of added warmth worth the extra money?

Great Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I've only worn the jacket a few times so far, but I'm initially very impressed. It's lightweight but sturdy, and it fits true to size.

Worn it EVERYDAY!!!

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

I've been looking to purchase another small Grey Driclime windshirt every time I receive a Backcountry email, but they are always out of my size or color. (Says a lot about how popular those are!!!)
Anyway, found this one was very similar with the addition of having 2 hand-warmer pockets, something the driclime windshirt was lacking. So immediately ordered it and have worn it everyday! Down in Louisiana, we've had rain, wind, sunny 50-60 degree days as well as 30-35 degree early mornings and this has done me right each time! Blocks wind well and i try to stay out of the rain for long periods of time, so can't comment on that yet! :)
Love it and came back to order another one before my size and color are sold out! The price is right and only wish it came in CINDER/slate grey... (hint!!!)
If I would complain about anything, the left collar tickles my neck if I don't have the zipper all the way up... but i usually remove all the labels from my jackets and shirts, so you can tell how ocd i am.
If you've already ordered from Backcountry, you know their customer service is second to NO ONE.

nice jacket well made

  • Fit: True to size

After going through a few jackets/returns I like this one. I plan on using it road biking. Winters in South Central Texas are pretty mild so this will help with breaking wind and add a little warmth also. Can put a fleece jacket under it if I wanted to. While not for very cold weather, it should me well for 45 to 60 degree days.

Is this jacket good in really cold winters?...

Is this jacket good in really cold winters? Like Chicago?

Responded on

It's not insulated... this is just a shell... so really the answer to your question is about what layers you can fit underneath, how much heat your are generating, and how well this (and the other layers) will breathe.

Responded on

I would consider looking into either a down jacket (or parka), or perhaps a high-gram synthetic, if warmth is what you crave, Barb. This jacket weighs less than 9 oz according to the specs, and is likely more of a windbreaker-esque jacket than one that you should depend on to keep you cozy in the Windy City. David T. above pretty much said everything else that I would mention, so I hope this has helped.

one of my all time favorites

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

like everyone else I had an original and fell in love with it. Took it everywhere. After years of service as a shell, warm layer, and emergency back up jacket I lost it. Tried the wind shirt and hated it, no pockets, how lame.
This new one has the pockets inside the driclime layer, the originals didnt and was the only downside.

Awesome!! Happy to see this jacket again

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

I had an original DriClime Jacket from Marmot. They unfortunately haven't made this jacket for a few years; only the Windshirt version. I purchased last year's Atom jacket but not the same. This jacket is my favorite jacket in the whole wide world. I mostly use it for paragliding. So glad Marmot decided to make it again. Thanks Marmot.
Your happy customer,

I like it even better than my first one

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

I bought this to replace a light weight Marmot jacket that I lost on vacation. The original jacket was bought in haste and was really not what I was looking for, but as I got to use it more and more, it became a critical item for me to have with me on both outdoor adventures and business trips. It was great to have in case the plane got too cold, or the weather where ever I was suddently turned rainy or windy. The new jacket has all the features of the old one, plus zippered pockets and a ear-phone slot so you can keep an ipod in the chest pocket but have the ear phone cord come out inside the jacket and under your collar. This jacket also has a higher zip collar than the original which keeps my neck warmer in stiff winds. The jacket is incredibly light, yet does a good job of fending off wind and water, though given enough of a down-pour, your are eventually going to get wet in this. I keep an outdoor research rain shell on hand for really bad weather, but this jacket gets worn 90% of the time, and I love that it has a lightweight lining which helps keep the wet shell off your skin, yet vents really well.

As others have noted, its got a tight fit. I am tall but skinny, and if you read the size charts, I would normally wear a medium, but the large fits me, and it fits fairly tightly. I can wear a fleece or a shirt under it, but you could not wear a heavy sweater without looking like you had been shrink-wrapped. If you like loose fitting garb, go a size or 2 larger than you normally wear. I like it this way because If things get really cold or really wet, I will put this under the other shell I might be wearing, and I like that it fits like a nice shirt.

I'm tempted to order a 2nd once in case I am stupid enough to loose this one like I did the last one.

Marmot May Have Something Here...

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

Having own an array of Marmot jackets, this one is worth the cost. I was told that it had an athletic fit, so I ordered one size up and was glad I did. Instead of pit zips, it has a mesh panel under the arm pit area which seems to work rather well. The only thing I found annoying at 1st was when I would put the jacket on, the interior lining would bunch up around the elastic wrist cuff. Yeah, it's nitpicking, but, I have no plans on getting rid of it anytime soon.

Fit too tight!

Opened the package and thought, "oh no!" I am 5' 10" 167 pounds, and a Medium usually fits fine. Not this time. I guess I'm not "athletic" enough, even though I walked 50 miles this month. Nicely made and good looking, but very "streamline" cut. Sent it back for a refund.

Not for summer runs

I like a super light jacket for summer runs in the mountains. Something to keep the sun/sind off and just in case it rains. This jacket is too heavy for that, the driCime lining is almost like an insulating layer.
4-stars in the fall
2 stars in the summer
Overall well made as you come to expect from Marmot.
