Marmot Minimalist Jacket - Men's
lightweight, does well in rain other than torrential downpours
Got this for my husband for Christmas and had it delivered to California where we were headed to be with family. Opening it, we saw there was some slight tearing of the internal layer just at the wrist, however we were sort of stuck with it, as we were headed to New Zealand the next day for 3 weeks. My husband called OMCgear customer service and was assured that he could return it if it didn't perform as expected. It rained A TON in New Zealand, and the jacket kept him dry, other than at the end of a long hike when we were at the top, out from under the forest cover, when it started to pour hard for the last 20-30 minutes of the hike! Even then I don't think he got too wet. He's still happy with it and hasn't returned it yet.

Purchased this jacket for everyday wear; working in music touring, I encounter lots of varying weather. Only had the chance to wear it once layered over a heavy fleece in zero degree weather in Des Moines, IA. Jacket is completely wind proof and waterproof. I'm 5'7", 150lbs, and the small fits perfectly, even layered over fleece. Definitely recommend!

Waterproof and light weight
This jacket is great for heavy rain and fits well. I normally wear a small but I have hips so the I got a medium because it is fitted on the bottom where it zips. The medium was great with a fleece or no fleece under it. The one thing I might change is my color choice. I got black and it can get warm in the sun if you use it for mosquito control as well as rain. It does have pit zips though.
