"A nice, light and easy to use hiking jacket, ideal for light hiking or casual wear."
The Marmot Minimalist Gore-Tex paclite jacket is a good option if you are looking for a GTX jacket for medium level hiking or casual wear for a good price. The design is simple. No different color and various shape parts or seams. It has two normal side pockets and one chest pocket. Not many GTX jackets have pockets like that, most have two big pockets that zip open downwards across the chest which makes them more difficult to access and things inside get in way, I see this as an advantage. On the other hand compare to the extreme GTX jackets, the pockets have normal zips, not YKK so is the main zipper, so do not expect it to be completely water sealed at those parts in the heaviest rains. Pit zips are a good feature on this jacket, really helps ventilation. I had it since November 2013 and used it mostly for MTB biking rather than hiking. When I was going down hill at speeds around 50 km/h when it was dense fog with temperature around 0°C, the kind of conditions that chill you to the bone, I did not feel a thing. So no question about it, it is wind/water proof like a GTX jacket should be. On the other hand I would question its breathability. Of course when you really sweat, you are wet no matter what you wear. But even after normal hikes, just walking slowly it was completely wet from the inside. I do not think that it should hold moisture as much. I guess it is due to the inner protection material which is probably cheep and not that technical and after all it is the older GTX paclite shell, not active shell. Another minus I would say is its shape. It is short and wide and the back part is the same length as the front part. Shape is individual of course, but the back part should be several cm longer than the front for protection around the waist. The biggest plus, or I would even say it is a state of the art is its hood. Simply fantastic! Since it is not designed for a climbing helmet to fit under it (which is very good compare to most other GTX jackets I think) it fits and can be adjusted and tightened on any head. When you turn or move your head in any way it moves with it and never gets into your field of view!!! Even with a bike helmet over it. This is really important. I had other GTX jackets where hoods always fell over my eyes and covered my sight when I turned my head no matter what adjustments I made to it. I have the cobalt blue color, it is really nice, just as shown.
Over all, the Marmot Minimalist Gore-Tex paclite jacket is not perfect, but good value despite the few disadvantages and you really get what you pay for. I would recommended it.

Yes, I would recommend this product.

"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.

Yes, I would recommend this product.

"Great jacket!"
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!

Yes, I would recommend this product.

"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.

Yes, I would recommend this product.
