For sizing purposes I wear size medium or 15 x 35 in a shirt. This is a lovely breathable rain jacket with nice features that all work. The cuffs have velcro closures. The pockets and pit zips have single slider zippers that can be operated one handed. The generous sized hood can be cinched down with three elastic drawstrings. The fit, described as "Athletic" by Marmot, allows me to wear either a t-shirt alone or my winter hiking rig (puff vest under a Proton light jacket) without feeling baggy or binding. The fabric (Evodry which Marmot claims has "a patented molecular waterproofing that never wears out" and, incongruously, "a long lasting DWR finish)" has a rubbery texture on the inside that can feel somewhat clammy on bare skin, however, I have worn this jacket through countless downpours and come out dry on the other end every time. Bravo, Marmot. One, tiny beef: I have an ape index of 3.5 and the sleeves - when I reach upwards - are a tad short. Normal people should be fine. This is a great jacket and on sale it is indeed a steal.

The DWR killer
October 10, 2018
After having this jacket hanging in my closet for a couple of months the wet season here in Utah has finally graced us with some rain to put this jacket to the test. I am happy to say that the waterproofing and the breathability of this jacket are incredible. And the new Eco DWR bonded to face fabric works like a dream. The material that Marot chose to use for the jacket as well is a great compromise between durability and lightweight. Whether you plan to use this jacket as a daily rider or under a backpack it will stand up to the abuse. The color choices are also really nice and the accent colors on the zippers really make the jacket pop. I also really like that Marmot chose to integrate mesh venting into the pockets as well as the pit zips. Overall I really like the fit and performance of this jacket. The sleeves and torso length are long enough for a tall guy like me and I'm able to fit layers underneath quite comfortably. The only downside I found and the reason I only give the jacket 4 stars is due to the fit around the neck when it is fully zipped up. This is a problem I have found with other jackets as well but this jacket in particular it stood out the most. When the jacket is fully zipped it just doesn't have enough room for your neck and chin to sit comfortably. Other than that though the jacket is awesome.

The skimpy neck, a common problem, leaves no room for underlayering. A deal killer.

Put it to the test!
It hadn't rained in a while so fellow gearhead Zak Ricklefs and I put together a video to show the jacket in action while the gearhead office was having a water balloon fight! Enjoy!

Hydrophobic and stylish! The pit zips really are the cherries that top this jacket, in addition to the awesome fabric (it doesn't feel plastic baggy!). The fit is nice, the arms are long which is a huge plus for me. #TallPersonApproved

Versatile and sustainable.
I can only speak about how well the waterproofing is based on the quality of all the other Marmot shells. However, I was impressed with the innovating approach they’ve taken by bonding the DWR at a molecular level rather than just coating the fabric. No more worry about reapplying DWR treatments or having your jacket wet out on you. The breathablility of the jacket is just as impressive. The Marmot Eclipse EcoDry is made with 100% recycled nylon, but they have even taken it a step further by making their recycling process both water and PFC free. It’s safe to say that when it comes to reducing our environmental impact Marmot means business. The jacket itself is packed with bells and whistles; taped seams, adjustable drawstring hems and hood, VELCRO cuffs, heat dump pitzips, and my favorite feature, the pack pockets. Strategically placed to accommodate pack straps whether you’re through hiking, or making turns on the slopes. I’m excited to see how this jacket performs in the long term, but for now I’m just waiting until a storm hits so I can really put it to the test. It does fit on larger side of things, even though it is listed as semi-fitted. Feel free to call or email me if you have any questions: (801) 523 4066 email@example.com

This Marmot Eclipse is great, and the features of it are even more impressive! Marmot killed it with the EvoDry technology in the Eco shell that they used for this Eclipse, which makes it such a nice feeling to not have to apply a DWR treatment to the jacket in the future. It is crazy breathable, and most definitely fully waterproof! I also love the high backpacking style pockets, it's super lightweight (under 1lb), and the underarm vent to dump heat when needed are so awesome. Lastly although it is listed as a semi-fitted style, I would classify it as more of a traditional fit. I would say that you can get it to a semi fitted style if you cinch it down tight around the waist, but out of the box it's more of a regular fit. Lastly, I love that it is made with entirely recycled fabrics. Just shows how great and environmentally friendly of a company Marmot really is, love all their gear and apparel!

would you say that this is jack has enough room that it would not compress a down jacket I'd wear underneath?

The Marmot Eclipse jacket is my new favorite rain coat! Marmot used a new technology called EvoDry in this one. The EvoDry treatment is bonded to the fabric at the molecular level so it will never wear out. A lot of rain jackets just have a DWR coating on the fabric that will eventually wear off and start to wet out. You can reapply a DWR coating but Iâd rather have a jacket that is low maintenance and stays waterproof forever. They way Marmot dyes this fabric is a lot more sustainable than the way most other companies are coloring their fabrics. This jacket is âsolution dyedâ which is a process that requires no solvents or water in the coloring process. This means there are no harmful byproducts that could end up in our water system. With this method the color in the fabric doesnât bleed or fade at all! For a waterproof jacket this one actually breathes really well. Even in a downpour I donât feel clammy in it. If you do get too warm the jacket has pit zips to quickly dump heat. I attached a photo of the pit zips since the other pictures didnât show them well. Look no further for a comfortable and quality rain jacket with a sustainable story!

I've taken the Eclipse on several trips this summer including backpacking on the Teton Crest Trail but have yet to experience the shell in the rain. Unfortunately, since the West has been as dry as a bone I can't speak to it's waterproofness or breathability in that scenario. However, I do have thoughts. More sustainable and environmentally friendly: The Eclipse is a new take on the way shells have traditionally been manufactured in the industry. This piece uses a permanent treatment to make sure water beads and rappels off the jacket - it will never wash out meaning you will not have to re-treat it and the Eclipse will never wet out! In use: The Eclipse seems to be well made shell that's perfect for backpacking. It's a trim to regular fit( tighter in the shoulders and chest and looser in the mid section) that allows for light layering underneath and the material is supple. It's a solid weight (not heavy but not UL), packs up pretty small, and looks really really good. I love the pocket placements for wearing my pack. However, I don't really see this piece as a shell for mountaineering, climbing or skiing. The hood is not helmet compatible(I tried both my ski touring helmet and climbing helmet), it doesn't stay under a harness or offer the mobility I want in a climbing shell, the velcro cinches at the cuff are really short and I couldn't get them to stay cinched over mid-weight gloves, and the cut is a bit short for skiing. Otherwise, i think it will be an excellent option for backpacking and playing in the outdoors.

Ditch the Rules
I think Marmot is onto something here. They already make many of the rain jackets I recommend day in and day out but with the EvoDry line they are charging hard at the major issues remaining with rain jackets, namely sustainability and eventual wearing and wetting out of the DWR. EvoDry is 100% recycled nylon which is rad of course but they also use a new method of DWR application basically impregnating the fabric at a molecular level with the DWR, not just a coating on the outside. Marmot says this creates a DWR that won't wet out or wear out over the use of the product. Rain is lacking here in SLC lately so I grabbed the garden hose and created a downpour by spraying up into a tree branch and having it cascade down in a pretty good deluge. Initially the water beaded like crazy then sheeted off but after about 5 minutes in this waterfall still hadn't wet out. I look forward to using with the extra pressure of a pack load. Great construction, very packable, good fit for layering, true to size overall, and the bonus is a more supple fabric that isn't crunchy.
