Closeouts. Marmot's Nabu jacket excels in conditions ranging from windstorms to downpours, thanks to Polartec® NeoShell® waterproof breathable fabric and a featherweight grid backing that wicks moisture.

This was put to the test right away when a prolonged, heavy downpour caught me by surprise deep in the back country -- this jacket kept my upper body completely dry.
Part of the waterproofing is tape on the zipper which initially make engaging it very difficult to the point where I thought the zipper might be defective. With use, the zipper has become easier to use.
I would prefer the jacket had pit zips but their absence is not a deal breaker for me.

Overall this is the best rain jacket for all situations. Durable, waterproof, light weight, and a great shell which is wind proof. Fits true
To size. I am 5'11" and 175 lbs and a large is perfect. Not overly big to wear as a stand alone jacket with enough room to layer in colder weather
Polartec Neoshell is a miracle material that is the best in any situation.

This jacket is built like a soft shell andbreathes very well. I have worn it hiking in a light snow and everything beaded up and ran off. I have also hiked in 50 degree weather with a 40 pound pack 1000ft elevation gain over 2 miles with it partly unzipped and very little sweat. Seems to meet or exceed expectations so far...

Second Neoshell for me here and it is thinner and different in the micro fleece backing than the Zion coat I have. This is lighter and has a pattern of sorts on the fleece backing. The soft shell is quiet, lite and just awesome and water just seems to always bead and never really soak into the the fabric. Super happy with these. Sizing is only issue with Marmot - I'm 165 5' 11" and got this in a Medium as will be single layered for me in summer/fall but the Zion Jacket I got in a large as I couldn;t layer it and not feel tight.
