    Details

    If I only had a Marmot.

    Marmot never had much of a market share in the Land of Oz, presumably because of astronomical shipping costs. As it turns out, it’s a good thing. If the Wicked Witch of the West had a Marmot Women’s Minimalist Jacket, things would have been very different for Dorothy and friends. The Minimalist uses Gore-Tex Paclite laminate fabric to shrug off the nastiest downpour. Paclite was developed to be lightweight and packable, while remaining completely waterproof and as breathable as Gore-Tex Classic.
    • 100% seam-taped Gore-Tex PacLite laminate fabric means water has no chance of melting anyone wearing the minimalist
    • Underarm zips offer ventilation when you need to cool down
    • Angel Wing articulated shoulders give you complete freedom of movement without the torso of the jacket moving around
    • Item #MAR1075

    Haleakala Crater

    Marmot Minimalist in Hawaii. The BEST lightweight, breathable, price-point piece to add to your collection. Layer over fleece if it's cold, but is a great stand-alone if it's warm with precip!

    Marmot Minimalist does the trick

    Literally chillin' in my Marmot Minimalist jacket on a sunrise summit of Mt Bierstadt (elev. 14,060'). It was pretty cold and the wind was blowing and this jacket kept the chill out of my bones. The pit zips were great on the way back down when I started warming up a bit. It works wonderfully in the rain, too.

    More than just a rain jacket!

    I bought this as a rain jacket and it was a little thicker than I was expecting. I was thinking it was just going to be a shell, but it's got a liner in it that is really nice. It really helps keep the wet and cold off your skin. It added a little warmth that I wasn't expecting. It seemed really true to size for me. I'm generally a med and the med fit great.

    More than just a rain jacket!

    Can anyone compare this to the Marmot PreCip? Specifically the fit and "noise factor". I find the PreCip NanoPro makes too much of a crinkly sound. Is PacLite quieter?

    Better ventilation - better material quality. Might be a tad bit warmer - but I doubt it. Both are definitely not warm stand-alone pieces. I would layer if you're looking for warmth. Precip might be a smidge lighter, due to material quality. But the Minimalist is definitely a light jacket, also!

    i'm just shy of 5'11...145lbs and slender but am leaning toward a L for length. yes/no?

    Does this jacket have a 2-way front zipper?

    Best Answer

    Molly,



    Great choice, great product, great manufacturer and great price. Unfortunately the Minimalist doesn't have a two way zipper and you'll not find a 2 way on any of the Marmot light weight jackets. Many manufacturers have eliminated two way zippers (for the weight weeny) on most of their products and it's a real bummer.



    Stay dry and enjoy!

    Has anyone tried to fit a light coat such as the Patagonia sweater coats under this? I like to layer while backpacking et al.

    Best Answer

    This is an awesome shell that is designed just for what you've described. Marmot sizing is generous and you'll find that adding a mid-layer such as the Patagonia down sweater or Marmot Sol down jacket will increase the warmth and comfort during the cold weather. There should be no need to go up a size to allow for the mid layer.

    Hi, I'm only familiar with European sizes. According to sizing charts I would need an M, but am not sure if I then will be able to wear anything underneath. My height is 170 cm and weight is 66 kg. Is M or L recommended? Thanks

    Does anyone know if this jacket has a liner...

    Does anyone know if this jacket has a liner of any kind in it (mesh or nylon)? or is it one of the straight single layer jackets. I can't find a photo of the interior anywhere!

    Best Answer

    There isn't a separate liner in this jacket - but it does use gore tex paclite. There is a driclime material on the chin area that makes for a nice soft layer where the jacket hits your face. On the inside gore tex paclite shells use a specific gore tex membrane with a protective layer made of an oil-hating substance and carbon. So the interior doesn't feel the same as the exterior - it's that protective layer that will be against your skin. Not a liner since everything is welded together, but I find paclite jackets to be perfectly comfortable against your skin.

    I am vacationing in Australia and New Zealand this summer (June). Would this jacket be appropriate?

    Best Answer

    Yes! I just returned from Australia myself and this was the jacket I brought. Despite it being summer there now, it was a wet and wild summer (for Australia) and the Marmot Minimalist worked like a charm. (Why fiddle around with an umbrella, when you can stay dry and hands free?!?)

    As another respondant mentioned, you will want to layer for extra warmth when needed, but otherwise, this is a great, lightweight Gore-Tex jacket -- perfect for travel.

    I'm training for an ultra run in June. Would this jacket function for my long runs in the rain near Seattle, Wa?

    While this jacket is very light-weight it's not the most breathable because of all the goretex. I suspect that if you use it for long runs you'll end up about as wet from all of your sweat that's been contained in the jacket as you would be from the Pacific NW showers.

    I am interested in this jacket but having trouble deciding what size. I am pretty small 5'2" 120lbs. I want to be able to layer my mountain hardware insulated jacket underneath so I am considering either the XS or S?

    I'd go for small, but check the size chart to be sure. I'm the same weight, but 5'3", and my measurements put me between a small and medium. I also like to layer, so I sized up to the medium. It's a bit too roomy, but I'd rather have extra room then feel too restrictive... Overall, I don't think this jacket is cut well for petites.

    If you do the Backcountry chat, they may be able to send both sizes with the RMA/return stuff, with the expectation that one of them will be returned.

    Is this jacket fitted? How do the sizes run?

    Hi Maria. There is a sizing chart just underneath the price on the right side of the page. I have found the charts to be be fairly accurate. Also, according to the site the fit is 'women-specific'. Not sure what that means, though.

    I find this jacket has a great cut is more form-fitting than other shells. Usually shells are super boxy on my petite frame but this one fits perfectly! I'm 5'2", 100 lbs and normally an XS, and the XS is super cute on me! I think the shoulders / armholes are cut slightly smaller to fit a woman's frame and the body is also cut better to fit a female figure. As far as layering goes, I can fit a light layer underneath but I can't fit a fleece jacket underneath.

    i guess it would depend each persons body, but for me it's not too fitted. im a medium in a few other marmot jackets (leadville and paceline) so i bought a medium in this jacket as well. since it's a shell it's definitely on the baggier side compared to the leadville and paceline which are very fitted on me. i tried on a small and i couldn't move my arms around too freely as i have pretty wide shoulders. decided to go with the medium and can fit the leadville jacket under comfortably.

Im planning to purchase this online but im not sure which size to take since the sizes are in small, medium, large. does anybody have an idea of the size equivalents? thank you very much!!!!! :D

    HI, what seasons would this jacket suit?...

    HI, what seasons would this jacket suit? I need something that will keep me dry in a torrential downpour but cool enough to wear while working in CAlifornia over the summer. I almost ordered the Crystalline but read it's not really durable enough to be worn with a heavy pack, which I will have to do if it rains.

    Best Answer

    Hey Nicola,

    This jacket is great for spring/summer activities that require rain protection. There is no insulation and the Gore-Tex Paclite is highly breathable as well as waterproof. Also being Paclite it is extremely lightweight so you don't get too hot.

    I'm looking for a replacement for my almost 4-year old Marmot rainjacket--don't remember what model it is but it seems similar to the precip, and is no longer waterproof at all despite my efforts to revive it. I have 2 questions--first, what is the main advantage of the Gore-tex over the crystalline or the precip? Second, why the 1-year warranty when everything else seems to be lifetime? If I make the investment I want it to last longer than what I had before...

    Best Answer

    Great questions Laura. First, let me say that the 1 year warranty is a typo, all Marmot products come with a lifetime warranty. Regarding Gore-tex Pac-lite vs Membrain Strata (Crystalline Jacket) vs Precip, it really does come down to long term durability. Gore-tex is still the gold standard, giving the best combination of waterproofness, breathability and durability. Other fabrics may initially offer better breathability, but none offer the longterm durability of Gore-tex. Membrain Strata used in the Crystalline is a laminate like Gore-tex and also offers great breathability and waterproofness but won't last quite as long as Gore-tex in the most demanding conditions. It is a lighter and less expensive option, however. Precip is a coating and offers a good combination of waterproofness, breathability, and afford-ability, but with lesser long term durability than the other technologies. Hope that helps.
