Why We Like The Minimalist Jacket

The Marmot Minimalist Jacket is a dependable rain jacket that we don't mind taking whenever there's a chance of rain. From campsites to football games, the Minimalist gives us GORE-TEX waterproofing in a packable, lightweight construction that keeps out of the way whenever it isn't raining. We also appreciate the ventilation zippers under each arm that give extra airflow when we're hiking.

  • Full seam-taped construction is abrasion-resistant and waterproof

Tangelo Hardshell

Size Bought:
5' 7"

I couldn't resist buying a second Marmot Minimalist when I saw the tangelo color. It looks great in person - just the right shade to be sporty and visible on cloudy, rainy days. If it had a 3-layer fabric, it would officially be a hardshell. Its feature set at the price has high value: zippered outer pockets with flaps, pit vents, adjustable hood, 50D face fabric, and Gore-Tex - just what you need in a do-everything rain jacket that is built to last. It has ample room to accommodate insulating and base layers underneath. It joins my blue Minimalist for wind-proof, water-proof, durable weather protection that looks and feels great! And a shout-out to Backcountry.com for speedy deliveries and great customer service!

Simplicity meets usability

Excellent purchase! The jacket is simple and very effective. I don’t like rain jackets that do too much. Just a simple waterproof and breathable outer layer with a great intelligent design.

Perfect, Almost-Everyday Raincoat for me

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is isn't an exaggeration to say this is a perfect jacket, although nothing can be perfect. I am impressed by the overall quality for the price, the cut, the functionality and the Gore-Text fabric all come together in a well-designed and executed raincoat that has all the functions, such as pockets, arm-pit ventilation, proven breathability of Gore-text, and the super lightweight. I can see myself wearing it in all but the coldest weather when I need heavier layers here in Michigan winter.

A great, understated, and reliable rain jacket.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this jacket for my partner and it performs as expected- a light, minimalistic jacket that keeps out the rain adequately. It's been an unusually rainy summer where I am so it has been tested extensively in a short time.

Fit is good

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This replaced my old Marmot Precip jacket The sizing is consistent between the two. FWIW, I have a marmot puffy coat that I wear a Large in, but the medium Minimalist fits PERFECTLY over it. I do wish the jacket packed into the pocket like the Precip, however. 5'-11" 185lbs

Never without mine

I am a female, but love this jacket. I bought one more than 15 years ago, while hiking in North Carolina—and forever since, was my “go-to” hiking jacket—repels water, have “vents”. Mine re-appeared after I ordered another, and I’m not sending it back—the updated hood Is worth it. (But I loved the old color—brighter blue.) Thank you for updating the hat so it doesn’t fall back in wind.

Hike on
