Closeouts. Providing featherlight wind protection for runners and hikers, Marmot's Ion wind jacket packs down small enough to fit in your pocket, with a wind-resistant, move-with-you design and specially placed ventilation panels.

Jacket is great for my early morning runs. Fits well, really light weight and the hood comes in handy when it starts to drizzle. Has well placed mesh venting to help keep you cool. Elastic around the wrist could be just a tad looser and would bet even better with side pockets. Plan on buying another one as backup.

It is as described...it is extremely thin which makes it ultra light weight. It still keeps you quite warm considering it is so thin. I can definitely roll it up tight and fit it into my pocket. Only thing is that I wish was different is the pocket location. I am so use to having the pockets at the bottom near the zipper. But overall, it is a great jacket and the description was definitely on the spot.

Nice, compact jacket. Like the mesh vents. Only has a single chest pocket that the jacket packs into--no hand pockets. Sizing: An XXL fits perfect for a 6'3", 230 lb guy. A good just-in-case jacket for golf bag, backpack, or even back pocket.

I had a featherweight Whisper jacket which zipper broke. Since they are no longer made, this is the closest I have found. I still have mixed feelings about the vents in the axillary area: better aeration but may let more water in if it does start to rain heavily. But, these aren't waterproof...so I think it will be a plus.

Love the weight. Blocks the wind well. Fit is accurate. Zipper is a little difficult. Doesn't quite line up straight at the base of the zipper, and this makes it a bit tricky. Overall though, very pleased.

I use this for running in the mountains. Packs up nice and small in my pack. The hood is my favorite part of this jacket for when it is a little too cold, windy, and rainy. Repels light rain but not anything more than that.

This is one of my new favorite pack-able wind breakers for when I am expected to break a sweat. The ventilation is in perfect locations and truly is a take anywhere item. Very close to actual size, so if you would like the extra space get a size up. A few things to consider - There are no hand pockets and elastic around wrist. Pros in my book but just needed to mention.
