Brian Pfaffwrote a review of Marmot Minimalist Jacket - Men's on September 30, 2014
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I have used many rain jackets but I believe this is the best one of all. I want to start off and say I have many jackets for different purposes, so I have only used the minimalist in select conditions. This is a not a do everything jacket, but for what it is designed for (Rain) it does very well. The gore-tex paclite makes it a great light weight jacket to wear when it's storming out. It feels very light and offers a great range of motion when wearing it. Its a jacket that I would throw in my pack on a day hike if I expect a bit of rain. Now it is not a gore tex pro shell, its durable, but it does have its limits. I wouldn't take it on a multi day trip and use it as my primary protection from the elements. With that being said, I am more than satisfied with this jacket. If your looking for a dedicated rain jacket to wear around town or to throw in your pack if your expecting some rain, you should definitely consider the minimalist jacket.
