Excellent lite weight Gortex jacket value

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Lou lou from Louisville, KY on Thursday, February 25, 2016
Bought this for my wife to replace another Marmot GT jacket that proved to be too fitted and too short in length for trail use. She's an adorable 5' 4"-138# and the medium was the rights size, especially if a fleece layer is worn underneath. This is a straight cut, not fitted, with long sleeves. I have the same men's model for myself. This jacket isn't loaded with features belying its lite design, but has enough. Long pit zips, zippered and velco pocket closures, generous hood. Velcro sleeve adjustment, etc. Some gripe about the sleeve length but if you've hiked in a downpour you understand the benefit to a longer sleeve which also helps with range of arm motion; you can peg the sleeve with the Velcro tab if needed. Very happy with workmanship, high stitch count, taped seams and the peace of mind that comes with a Goretex garment.
