Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Great value for the price. Light weight, packable, hood stashes in collar, breathable, pit zips nice for extra breathability. Feels sticky on bare arms, when wearing short sleeve shirt.
Originally ordered large, too big, very full cut in body, I'll use in colder season if I need layers. Ordered med., much better, more fitted, sleeves perfect length. I can wear with a light fleece if needed, a little snug in the neck & forearm with fleece. For reference, I'm 5'9", 168 lbs., med/large shirt (16-34 dress shirt), 32 waist.
Interior lining of jacket is quickly disintegrating. I have only used the jacket about five times and began noticing the lining tearing in a small area, now it is torn in multiple areas only after gentle use. Possibly I got a fake. None the less have to buy another.
First things first: this is just a rain shell. If you are looking for a jacket that offers any real insulating value, you need to keep looking.
That said, if what you want is something inexpensive that breaks the wind, sheds the water, and breathes well, look no further. I have tested this Marmot in several Oregon rainstorms without getting a drop inside.
The fit is designed for people with a pretty average build. For me, the chest and shoulders are a little more snug than I'd like, but if I trade up to an XL the waist will be way too baggy and the arms will be too long. It's acceptable, but if you are a weightlifter you will not be able to fit a thick sweater or fleece under this and still be happy with the fit.
Construction is a mixed bag. You can't expect much at this price point, and everything works pretty well. Some details aren't confidence inspiring though. The snap at the bottom is too sturdy; I keep expecting the jacket to tear when I open...
