This is a great jacket for cool days when you are taking a walk or hiking. I sweat a lot, so I was worried that the light fleece? lining would be too warm, but it breathes well and I wear it when I would otherwise have to layer with my other super light wind shell. It has a shirt style hem, not a normal coat hem like the picture suggests, so that might be a problem for some who like a less casual look, but I like how long it is; It touches the top of my thighs. I wear a 14 and I have long arms, so the xl is comfortably loose on me and arms are nice and long. The bright blue color is bright, but pleasant, I think.

The marmot Driclime windshirt is great for anyone on the go. It wicks sweat and moisture well, no condensation built up inside. Also, it does a good job of keeping out the wind and can also keep you dry for a short while in a light drizzle. Won't go out with just this in downpours though. The blue i got was very radiant. Like this one a lot.

I loved everything about this jacket except the way it fit me in the shoulders/bust area. Loved the shirt-tail hem and gussets for movement. This is a great jacket for someone like me who has trouble finding jackets that aren't too small in the hips. Unfortunately, it was just too roomy under the arms for me. Otherwise, it was just what I wanted and I was sad to have to return it.

This is clearly not a women's large. It is way too tight across the chest. I have an older size large driclime windshirt and I was hoping this would replace it. It can't because there is no way to wear any layers under this one, which is why I carry my original. The tag says L so I think this is either a quality control issue or else they radically changed their size measurements. Other large sized jackets are big and roomy on me so I am sure the sizing on this is just wrong. If you get this you may need to order one size up. If it fits it is a great windshirt.

This is best described as a shirt so if you are looking for a jacket, this is not it. The fit is like a shirt and there's not much room to fit much underneath unless you order up two sizes. I am 5'4" 175 lbs and the XL fits w/little room to spare. I haven't tested the wind-proof properties but it seems it will keep the wind out. The material shell and lining are nice and thin so that you could wear it under something. It could also be tucked in. The color blue is really attractive. Strategically placed side and pit vents-rather attractively done. So long as you expect a shirt not a jacket, you will be happy with this product.

I take this jacket anytime i travel as i can use it for layering and it is very light weight. I hike and ski and golf and i find this is the perfect companion. It is soft and comfortable and wind resistent and somewhat water resistent so how could anyone not love it. It may seem a bit expensive but i just replaced one i had for 10 years ( and this was stolen) and it more than pays for itself with years of use. love it

The Marmot Windshirt is a classic Layer...great for all outdoor activities! The only con I can think of with this product is the fit. It seems Marmot has changed its fit over the years and I find that I am between sizes. If its the right width across the shoulders it will be too long in the arms. A pretty minor issue, still a great addition to outdoor layering.
