The jacket description does not make it clear that it _does_ have pit zips (an absolute necessity, in my opinion). The jacket fits well, does a great job of keeping you dry and warm, packs small, and is great for hiking. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to a friend (or to buy another!).

Very comfortable, light, and attractive. I usually take a small, but this was quite trim fitting and little constraining around the hips, so I went with a medium, which has the added benefit of being roomy enough to allow for a sweater or light down jacket when it gets chilly.

My old Gore-Tex jacket died and I've been looking for a replacement for ages. In Oregon, it's a staple. This one fit perfectly in a medium -- I'm 5'3", 125. Room for a light fleece underneath, but fitted enough to look nice. I'll get a ton of use out of it, and the bright blue color is terrific.

This jacket was put to the test the first time I wore it. I was hiking when it started pouring cats and dogs and I stayed dry under the jacket. It poured for about an hour. It's very comfy and fits nicely by itself as well as over a jacket. It is true to size. I would recommend you to buy it, great price, great jacket.
Only Marmot could confirm but they seem to match up, spec wise. Optima, per STP is 15 oz. wt., 27" length; Minimalist, per Marmot is 14.4 oz. wt. and 27.25" length. Otherwise, all other specs appear identical.

Pretty sure it is. Wore it on a hiking trip in Swiss Alps. Kept me dry thru hours of rain and sleet. Very satisfied.
