True, the Marmot Men's Super Mica Jacket does feature pro-level waterproofing, all-universe breathability, and enough technical features to confuse a space shuttle engineer, but that's no reason to drool on yourself. Sure, the NanoPro MemBrain laminate is rated 10K waterproof and 47K breathable (is that even possible?), and the seams are fully taped, and the zippers are waterproof, and there are underarm vents, and the pockets are harness- and pack-compatible, and the hood is designed to work with helmets, but other than that? Fine, the ergonomic Angel-Wing movement helps you hike and climb in serious comfort, and the Duralite reinforcements prevent tears in high-wear areas, and the hook-and-loop asymmetric cuffs don't ride up, but that's seriously it.

Nice jacket/too tight

  • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
  • Fit:Runs small
  • Height: 6'0"
    Weight: 190 lbs
    Size Purchased: lg

I got the large but, it is way too tight across the chest. Bummer it looks like a quality jacket. I have gotten other large Marmot jackets and they fit like a glove. Sending it back. Will swap for an xl if available. I'll write a follow up if it works out.


Great multi-purpose shell

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 5'11"
    Weight: 220 lbs
    Size Purchased: Large

I purchased the jacket based on some of the reviews here and based on recommendations from those interested in minimizing weight and encumbrances on hikes. So far, I've only used it in and around Anacortes, WA, but was pretty impressed with the performance. It wasn't yet cool outside, but was definitely rainy, and the shell did a great job of keeping me dry but not too warm. I also really like the orange color, but that may not be for everyone!

I am looking to get this jacket as a top layer that in inclement weather I may be putting over a thin down jacket. My shirt size is comfortably 15.5 and 32/33 should I get a small or get a med to give it some breathing room for midlayers.


I wear the same shirt size and in all Marmot technical shells that I've worn I have gone with a Medium. I find it allows for layers while not being tight around the chest. It will allow for more comfortable and natural movement.


Everything you want in a RainCoat/Shell

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 6'2"
    Weight: 185 lbs
    Size Purchased: XL/TG

I purchased this raincoat for a week long backpacking trip on the AT and being dry and comfortable was the primary focus. This jacket fits great, looks great, is 100% waterproof, and breathes well. It doesn't feel like plastic and cling to you, and it also has just enough breathability to keep you comfortable. For me, it's the perfect blend of comfort and function, there is really nothing else I could want or need from a raincoat. I love it!

I almost didn't buy this coat because of the review from "Kirill" below talking about the inside of the coat having problems until I read further and saw they were talking about an older model of this coat (if it's even the same coat). The inside of my coat doesn't look at all like that photo, and I think they should remove that post because it is not valid feedback and could lead to others not buying what I consider to be a perfect raincoat.

I've included a photo of the inside of my coat for reference.

I highly recommend this coat!

Everything you want in a RainCoat/Shell

good light rain clothes

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

I have got this for a month, it a good jacket I have it packed in my bag everyday. It is used for shelter little rain, shield the wind. The only cons I find so is that some fiber material comes out on the hem and cuff edge. It is not that abrasion resist. I am 5,7' 152 pound and have a M, a bit large, but good if you add a atom LT as a mid layer.


One Happy Nephew

  • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit:True to size

I bought this for my nephew to take on his NOLS course in the Wind River range. It served him well enough on the trip to write a thanks to his uncle.

(any note from a teenager is a big deal)


Thank you to my Gearhead Emily Forsdick for her recommendation on this item.


Excellent lightweight jacket!

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

See my answer to Kirill below for more details.

The bottom line: be sure you are getting the 2014 NanoPro version of this jacket - heartily recommended! This is my go-to for lightweight weather protection. The only drawback is that it doesn't pack into its own pockets, but you can roll it into its hood easily enough.


Super sweet

  • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit:True to size

I got my pops one of these and I was surprised. I did not think I would like so much. Very packable and lightweight. I love Marmot products, they are well made and thought out. Nothing fancy it just plain works. I will be getting myself one.


XL -- sleeves are too short

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

I just received my XL Marmot Super Mica that I bought for the sale price of $146.22. Unfortunately, the sleeves are too short for me at 6' 3". When I reach for something, the cuffs slide up my arms. As a result, I feel the 'angel wing movement' doesn't work, and the only thing that will keep the cuffs from sliding up my arms is some extra length in the sleeves. A blue XL is being returned.

On the plus side, the cuffs on the Super MIca can be cinched down nicely with the velcro. With most of the Marmot rain jackets I've tried on, the velcro on the cuffs does not offer enough range to cinch them down small enough. For some reason(inattention to details?), Marmot uses different positioning for the velcro on the cuffs from model to model. The Marmot Precip also has cuffs that work for me.

It would be helpful to know what sleeve length you wear in a dress shirt.

I'm about 6' tall with a 35" sleeve and the Large fits well in the body and sleeves. The fit is trimmer than the Marmot Aegis which I had previously worn.

What about wind protection ?

Exceptional performance

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

The Marmot Super Mica Jacket delivers exceptional performance due to NanoPro Membrain which allows it to rival jackets nearly twice the price. Outdoor enthusiasts looking for a lightweight but fully functional and featured, waterproof-breathable, jacket should definitely consider the Super Mica jacket.


NanoPro Membrane is Highly Breathable



Fantastic performance / price ratio


Aesthetically pleasing designs and color options


Needs a little more room under the arms

Doesn't stuff into its own pocket.
