Why We Like The Essential Jacket

Since rain has a propensity to fall on virtually anything from parades to parties, the folks over at Marmot crafted the Essential Jacket to keep us covered in the event our day's schedule threatens to get rained out. Fashioned with the lightweight yet totally water- and windproof GORE-TEX Paclite, this minimalist jacket is both pragmatic and charming with its slimming silhouette and a longer cut, providing extra coverage when the skies open up. In addition to its bombproof GORE-TEX construction, the Essential is equipped with an adjustable hood and fully taped seams, ensuring no water can permeate its surface.

  • GORE-TEX Paclite offers lightweight protection
  • Thigh-length ensures extra coverage from the elements

Rain Rain Go Away

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Plain and simple waterproof rain shell to wear over business work attire for commuting on soggy days. Navy color was nice little change from the usual black.

Lightweight, perfect rain coat

Lightweight, perfect rain coat. It has a new look, it doesn't have marmot written in the chest, which is a better, minimalistic look. Also the pockets are lined with the soft material, and it feels way better. My previous coat had a velcro at the pocket and my gloves were constantly ruined. This one doesn't have that. Overall very good basic rain jacket.

Great Raingear for Layering.

I was looking for an upcoming trip to Ireland. I did a test run with this coat to see how it performed. I wore a fleece sweater under the Essential Jacket and that combo kept me warm on a windy, rainy, forty degree day. The jacket was roomy enough to accommodate the fleece nicely. I like the slightly longer length, I think it is warmer than a jacket that ends at my waist. My only complaint is the zipper is a little flimsy. It always takes multiple attempts to get it started, but once engaged it slides smoothly.

women's rain jacket

The jacket appears to be functional (i.e. water-repellant). But there is little substance to it and it was not worth the rather extravagant price you charged.

Nice waterproof longer jacket

Nice completely waterproof jacket. Decent coverage with hood up. I’m 5’10 and length covered just past rear end, which was exactly what I was looking for. I just wish it was lined-even with a light cotton lining. It’s very lightweight and thin.

Waterproof -- tested and approved

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Egg Bowl 2022 (Hail State) -- the Marmot Essential Rain coat proved to be superior to all all others, keeping me dry during 3 hours of enduring rain and high excitement in a football stadium. There were 2 winners that day... Marmot Rain Gear and Mississippi State Bulldogs #GoDawgs

Best Rain Wear - Stylish and Functional

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Product became the envy of all at the Egg Bowl this year (Go Dawgs) After 3 hours of pouring rain, I was the only one of my friend group who could say that they had stayed dry. It also was very comfortable and allowed me to jump around and ring my cow bell freely as my team brought home the victory.

Light weight & long

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I searched high and low for a raincoat that properly covers my bum! So many coats leave me damp in the derrière! This is a practical length, light weight rain shell that is breathable. Perfect for adventures during an Alaskan summer.
