very lightweight, waterproof, windproof jacket good for almost everything. If its really cold you definetely need an insulated layer.

  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Hooper123222 from Irwin, PA on Friday, July 24, 2015
    I bought this rain jacket specifically for a trip to Ireland, where I knew I'd be out in the rain and didn't want the rain to spoil the day. This jacket did exactly what I needed it to do. It was light, easy to pack along, but when I needed it it really worked, from light drizzle to downpours to hard wind-driven rains.. 100% waterproof, breathable and not too hot when walking and active. The zipper front pocket kept my cell phone camera dry but ready. It also kept the wind from cutting through. In Ireland, it's always about to rain, so I was able to keep this jacket tied around my waist or in my backpack at all times. The Velcro cuffs worked well, and I liked how you could adjust the hood to a position for better fit and visibility, and the pit-zips provide more airflow so I didn't overheat inside the coat when active. I paid right at $100 with free shipping and I feel like I got a pretty good deal for Gore-Tex and this jacket was worth it. I'm sure I'll get lot's more enjoyment from it in years to come. There are lots of other jackets out there that may be comparable that I haven't used. But this one did what I wanted it to do and I think provided the value I was looking for.

    I haven't fully tested it out, but it's kept me dry in the couple of small rain showers I used it with - walking out to get the mail, etc... I will say I love the fit and feel of the jacket. Definitely well made and way better feel than my previous rain jacket. Anxious to put it through it's paces on a couple upcoming camping trips.

    I plan on taking it on a hiking trip to Patagonia and needed something light and packable; this fits the bill perfectly. Bought this to wear over other layers, so had to get a men's vs women's size and therefore the sleeves are very long, but for the price, I don't care.

    Good, looking, fits well and Gore-Tex is very waterproof. and breathable.
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Kayak Charlie from Louisville, KY on Monday, July 6, 2015
    I'm 6'-205 lbs and the large fit fine. No room for heavy layers but that's not important to me. I need water protection for backpacking and kayaking in the GSMNP and Ohio River Valley where I live. This is my fourth rain jacket and will certainly be my best. Other lightweight porous shells with DWR finish haven't done the job in extreme wet conditions. This Optima uses a light weight GT material that should be good for my warmer climate. We'll see if it's breathability can reduce the claminess prevalent with nylon shells. The build quality on this jacket is excellent. I have no concerns with the bullet proof warranties offered by STP, Marmot and Goretex should anything develop. It's actually dressy enough to wear for casual outings and not looking backwoods. Nice design features w/ large plastic zipper front, ample storm flap, tapered Velcro sleeve ends. Features I covet but can't find in a coat in this price range: rear cape shoulder vent with inside netting to dump heat, perspiration and condensation and simple Velcro touch dots down the storm flap when you don't want to zip tight. Marmot put these on the pocket storm flaps but not down the front. A longer body length would be a good feature for me but most like the more athletic tapered style this jacket has. Big thanks to STP for this OUTSTANDINGLY value. I got a light weight GT jacket with excellent breathability and water resistance specs for an amazing price.

    • Answer We have 3 of these jackets and I wouldn't have kept buying them if the fit was constricting. I think this jacket does have the angel wing cut. Check out the description of the jacket on some other sites and I think it may be stated.
      Answered on 3/31/2015 1:45:34 PM by SCskibum from Lexington, SC
    • Answer Not sure what you mean by angle wing, but the jacket has excellent movement in the shoulders with room to wear an undergarment when the weather is cold. I normally wear a large in Marmot jackets and this jacket has the necessary extra room for good movement while maintaining proper fit.
      Answered on 3/31/2015 2:51:26 PM by Traverse City Tom from Traverse City, Michigan
    • Answer Sorry, Eric, I don't have other Marmot jackets with this "angel wing" movement you mention. Perhaps you are referring to whether the sleeves are extra wide at the top? If so, it seems like the sleeves are just right, but not like "wings," and allow for layering (a thin, ultralight down vest was worn with this recently, and the jacket fit just fine). Bought this for my husband, and he likes it a lot. It's more beefy than the Marmot Precip line, and it seems like it will be a great lightweight raincoat.
      Answered on 3/31/2015 4:26:49 PM by Mary from Salt Lake City, Utah
    • Answer Yes, free radial movement in arms like their other gear, great rain jacket.
      Answered on 3/31/2015 4:39:50 PM by Mike from Texas
    • Answer Not having any other Marmot jackets I can't say. The fit is snug, but I've not found it confining.

  • Question “Does the Marmot Optima accept other Marmot zip-in liner jackets? All or only certain ones?”
    Asked on 11/13/2014 9:44:10 AM by Radio63 from Chickasaw Nation
    • Answer No it does not accept zip-in liner jackets. It is just a light rain shell.
      Answered on 11/13/2014 11:16:21 AM by Bonez from Iowa
    • Answer No. It does not have an interior zipper for a liner.
      Answered on 11/13/2014 11:43:40 AM by NMHiker1 from New Mexico
    • Answer There is one zipper on the Marmot Optima and does not appear a zip-in would work. Its a great shell over a down sweater or fleece.
      Answered on 11/14/2014 9:04:11 AM by justin from MA
    • Answer the seam sealing on the optima is better….being gore-tex. it will offer better protection from the elements. the fabric on the optima is also thicker and just seems like it is better quality. i have only had the chance to wear the jacket a few times but have been very happy with it.

    • Answer Gortex,Gortex,Gortex That is the main difference I see. I don't own the precip, but I understand it's a great buy for a rain jacket! I use my paclite as both a shell and a rain jacket and wanted the "extra" breath-ability that I know Gortex offers. I've never tried a nylon vs Gortex durability study, but I do have a 10 year old gortex "old" school with the mesh liner rain jacket. It still works even with a few patches. I needed a replacement, because it became a "trust" problem and potentially one my life could depend on... don't get wet!

    • Answer Sorry there is not a temperature rating.
      Most manufacturers do not have temperature ratings for their garments or footwear due to the number of factors that affect how warm a garment may keep you. This item is designed to be used as a layering piece. The following buying guides may offer some insight to help you dress properly for any environment.

  • Question “Does this jacket roll up like the precip jacket?”
    Asked on 8/1/2013 9:31:00 AM by David from Vancouver, BC
    • Answer It does not fold into it's own pocket like the Precip, but only weighing 2 more ounces than the Precip it is still very packable.
      Answered on 8/1/2013 10:30:00 AM by Prod. Spec. Kevin from Sierra Trading Post
    • Answer Jacket can be used in certain summer conditions. As Marmot advertises it is great for trekking, hiking, backpacking, mountaineering, cycling, hunting, fishing, golfing and water sports. Not all of these are winter activities.
