Quality Quality Quality
Just received the minimalist jacket and pants. So impressed with the quality construction of these garments. Pants went on easily over my hiking boots. Plenty of room to layer, including a light down puffer. Cannot wait to put them to the test in Patagonia (will write another review when we return). And they still manage to be flattering! If you're on the fence about size, go up. I tried the medium first and it was a bit short waisted for me. Liked the extra length & room of the large.

Lightweight and durable
The only reason I returned it, is because I bought the Black Diamond Stormline and liked the cook, color and fit of it better. But this jacket is really great for the price, and the Goretex paclite material makes it a more breathable waterproof jacket!

Watertight, and durable!
This jacket is awesome. It fit like my other Marmot jacket, and I can't wait to use it this summer for hiking, and skiing in the winter. Smaller hood, so it won't fit a helmet, but will do the job for most other activities. Can't beat the price for Goretex Paclite, and it doesn't feel fragile like other Goretex Paclite jackets. Its built to last!

Amazing jacket! I did my research before traveling to Patagonia and am so glad that I did! I wore my jacket yesterday on a catamaran traveling to the Upsala Glacier in Argentina. This is a great jacket and I plan to buy it in several colors. The hood is wonderful for both wind and rain. I highly recommend this jacket and plan to use it in Colorado as well.

It's beautiful and comfortable, I usually wear it when it's chilly outside. It keeps you warm pretty well.

My all-weather jacket
I wear this jacket all seasons in wind, rain & snow. I just came back from a ski trip in Upper Michigan. We had temps from 20s, down to negative 5. I skied and snow shoed by just adding layers. Itâs replacing all my high tech ski jackets. Very comfortable and warm (when layering). Iâm very satisfied and highly recommend. This is my 3rd year of owning this jacket.

Jacket looks solid, but a "bun" just will not fit inside the hood (or the face is wet!).

She loved it
I gave this to my wife as a gift. Her old rain jacket was on the last leg, and we needed to find something for everyday use, as well as backpacking. Perfect fit, and love the material. So far, the only test has been local rain, but we look forward to taking in on the trail soon enough.

Bought this jacket for my girlfriend. She loves it!

Perfect for Windy Days
I purchased this product for Fall/Winter in Iceland. The jacket was light and easy to pack. With the hood up, I was protected from wind and rain. The temperature was around 30 degrees with winds around 25 mph. The jacket was protective but I did need three layers underneath. It’s perfect for fall and spring would suggest an outlayer that is thicker for colder temps.

Pockets fill with water. Camera ruined.
I was caught in a surprise downpour this weekend while camping. I put my small camera in one of the pockets and zipped it up. The pocket got a lot of water in it, so much I had to pour it out. The camera is ruined. I contacted Marmot about the issue and got no reply. I will never purchase a Marmot product again.

Hi Ali, I'm sorry about that! That seems like an unusual issue. The pocket zippers are not watertight, but with the flap over the pockets, I would expect them to be fairly protected from the elements if they were fully zipped up.

Obsessed. I ordered at least 5 different jackets before my last trek because I couldnât find one that wasnât an awkward short length and was still big enough to layer under. This was the answer. It even has pit zips! I love the baggier fit. Would absolutely recommend.

Perfect Outer Layer for ALL seasons!
I bought this jacket because my mom has it in black and I love it. I bought the deep dusk. It is a beautiful color that pops when you're in the woods but isn't too obnoxious to wear in town. I normally wear an XS but bought the S so I could layer insulation under it for winter sports. I am 5ft and 125 lbs. I found it to be a bit long but the hem is adjustable as are the cuffs on the sleeves. With those adjustments, it fits well with room for layering. Haven't had heavy rain but I know from borrowing my mom's that it is very waterproof.

Love the coat, but......
THIS COAT IS HUGEEEE! For my fellow lean ladies, don't listen to reviews. Many reviews state that a Small was the perfect size for 5'4" and about 115-120 lbs. This is my exact height and weight, however this coat is massive on me! I would consider myself fairly muscular, so most of my weight is quite lean and I do have a narrow pelvis. Typically my shoulders are a bit too broad for XS in some brands, but this was a very roomy fit on me in that region. Elsewhere, I was swimming in this coat even with a thick Patagonia pullover underneath (the retool in size Small--which is boxy on me). I can literally overlap this coat by about 5 inches still with a relaxed fit with a long sleeve under it. I returned for XS and I'm hoping that it is a little less sloppy looking on me even just for hiking.

I was looking for a light and waterproof jacket to wear, and this one is a perfect match for me! I am so stoked to take this on my backpacking trip this summer. I think one of my favorite things about it is how comfortable it truly is. It does not restrict movement at all, even though it is a slimmer fit. I will definitely be buying another color.

Works for rain and wind!
I wore this for a 19 day trip trekking in El Chalten, El Calafate, and Torres del Paine. It was great in rain as well as a windbreaker. It folds up small and is light and takes up no space at all in a stuffed pack. I like that the hood is very adjustable and would stay on under strong winds. Also, it fit my down jacket hood without issue. And my absolute favorite part is that there are underarm zips that you can use to ventilate when you still need it as a windbreaker but are getting hot. I think it runs a bit big; I ordered the medium which is loose without a jacket under it, but it's perfect for fitting a thicker down jacket underneath without restricting movement.

Bring on the Rain
Feedback below: I ordered the Deep Plum color in a size small and I love it. The color is true to the image. There is a slimmer fit but I don't plan to layer too much underneath. Worked just as it should in the last thunderstorm! Definitely would recommend for anyone looking for a top notch waterproof jacket.

Never leave home without it!
Bought this for my wife for a gift and she wasn't sure she needed it, but it has come in so handy. The fit is true to size as she pretty much wears a small. There is a little bit of room for layering but probably nothing really bulky. Excellent rain protection and it is impossible to find a gortex shell for this price point.

Two thumbs up
I got the slate blue and love the color! It fits great and packs up small so I take it with me on all my adventures and travels around the world (or Utah, Idaho and Wyoming).

Bought this jacket in white for my wife. Medium fit her well as these seem to be sized small. Good rain protection. Inside is not lined, to the best of my memory. If I were to have to buy again, I would look for something similar, but with a lining.

whats the waterproof rating (mm) on this jacket?
