Ronwrote a review of Marmot Minimalist Jacket - Men's on September 24, 2013
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I can't brag enough about the Minimalist jacket. I'm 5'11" 185 with an average middle-aged build, and the large fits me great. I've worn mine on treks through the Lake District of England and the Orkney Islands of Scotland. I wore the jacket alone for wind and rain protection, and paired with my soft shell for warmth when the temps dropped. (I also recommend the Minimalist pants!)
The pit zips are great and angel wing cut offers wonderful freedom of motion. I carried my camera in the chest pocket with no problem in the harsh elements of northern Scotland.
Great experience with Marmot products as well as Backcountry.
