Always be prepared.
You don't need to be stressed out about the weather when you've got the Marmot Knife Edge Jacket stuffed away in your pack. The lightweight shell has a water and windproof Gore-Tex Paclite membrane that provides packable construction so you have no excuse to not have a shell with you when you embark on a day hike, weekend adventure, or bike commute to work. When the sky opens up, pull out the shell from your pack, slip it an, and stay dry and protected from the elements with help from the fully taped seams and DWR treatment.
Aside from being able to pack small to shove into a pack, the Knife Edge Jacket is also equipped with Marmot's Angel-Wing Movement so you aren't being restricted by your jacket as you quickly hike down a mountain when a storm rolls in or pedal home from work when the afternoon showers unload. When you throw on the hood for particularly nasty downpours, you can make adjustments so your peripherals aren't impacted as you make your getaway from the storm. So water doesn't get down your sleeves while you make your escape, cinch up the hook and loop adjustments at the asymmetric cuffs to be snug on your wrists. If you take a wrong turn in your hurry to get off the mountain, you can still shove your hands into their pockets and access your map while you're wearing a pack due to their high placement.

The jacket is of high quality and soft material. Although I say true to size, it runs smaller in the shoulders and larger in the body. I'm 5'2
