Soft and sweet.
The Marmot Women's Estes Hooded Softshell Jacket is ideal outerwear for fall climbing trips, backpacking in the spring, or walking to your Saturday yogalates class on a mild September morning. The M3 softshell is Marmot's most breathable softshell, and its comfortable stretch and regular fit let you layer a little bit; for the late-fall hike you'll start at sun-up (so you can finish before nightfall), you can comfortably wear a silkweight tee and a trim-fitting fleece under this shell without feeling like an overstuffed teddy bear.
Angel-Wing arm articulations let you freely swing your trekking poles or reach for that high hand-hold. The low-profile hood stays close to your head, and you can zip up the collar to keep your neck warm. Hiking across town instead of through the woods? An internal zipped media pocket lets you bring along your smartphone without exposing your tech to the elements. Three external pockets offer ample storage space for cash and credit cards so you can leave your purse behind for truly unencumbered exploring.

Awesome coat, runs small in the chest area but the coat is stretchy so it works. Black is not really black but more like a midnight blue color, still a nice coat , good hood , pockets in a weird location.
Love the color, but runs super small

I purchased this in the green color. I have the Marmot PreClip rain jacket that fits perfectly in XS, so I assumed that this would be the same in sizing, and have friends with Marmot softshells who agree with that assessment. It was too short and too tight in the arms, wrists, etc. Gorgeous, but size up! At least in the green. Unfortunately, the next size up for me was sold out. Not meant to be, I suppose.
