Sashawrote a review of Marmot Minimalist Jacket - Women's on November 1, 2015
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
A while ago I reviewed this jacket purely from the wind-protector perspective, since I wore it to run the Antarctica Ice Marathon. Then I wore it to raft the Grand Canyon, but it's tough to determine water-proofness when the water is coming at you like a fire hose. But this summer, I wore this jacket on a long backcountry horseback pack trip in the Washakie Wilderness, and it proved its rain-worthiness beyond a doubt. One day we were on the horses for about 10 hours and over 20 miles, and it rained the entire time. And wherever this coat was covering me, I stayed dry! In fact, my brother was so jealous that we just ordered him the men's version as a birthday present for him. This is a fantastic coat for any adventure I can come up with, and that's saying something.
