I wear this jacket when there is a chill in the air, windy or a bit rainy. It is also good for cool weather nights in the spring and fall. It is very lightweight and beautiful material. It is not meant for cold weather wear.
Best Uses: Golf, Windy Weather
Pros: Attractive design, Lightweight, Water Resistant, Wind proof

Great jacket if you understand what you are getting. The M3 soft shell material is the least warm and water repellent of the series, but it is the most breathable and the lightest. It is Marmot quality which means it's guaranteed for life. This jacket is not the most technical jacket around but it is well made and has exceptional styling and flattering fit. What you most need to know about this jacket is that it is not lined. It is a very lightweight and pack-able shell that is absolutely ideal for travel where a warmer jacket is not required. The jacket is great for travel to places where a lot of walking/hiking is involved because it does breathe so well, yet still keeps the wind off. For the niche this jacket fills I don't think there is a better jacket out there for the price that is so well suited for travel and light outdoor use. This jacket costs less than many basic fleece pull-over tops, so bear that in mind as far as value is concerned. They fit very true to size and the sleeves are plenty long. The only thing I would change about this jacket is that I wish it had adjustment tabs for the sleeve opening because the opening is pretty wide, but I guess that makes for easy on and off so not a really huge deal. Great color selection, I would buy another one of these in black if that color were offered. Great jacket that will do well in light hiking and outdoor activities but is an absolute no brainer for travel, best in class in my opinion.
