Perfect lightweight shell
Reviewed by rainman from shasta lake, ca on Saturday, March 17, 2012
very lightweight, waterproof, windproof jacket good for almost everything. If its really cold you definetely need an insulated layer.

    Like jacket. However, wish I was able to zip a lining into it.
  • Needs minor correction
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Fishing/hiking rob from Nj/ny on Sunday, October 28, 2018
    When you make a product whose specific design is to keep you dry, you don’t leave
    Any parts out. This jacket fits well, has plenty of nice features (draw cords, wire rim, chest pocket, etc) however Marmot did NOT make the hand pockets waterproof. The pockets fill with water even when zipped closed. Terrible. Why wouldn’t they simply throw in another few dollars to have waterproof zippers on the only hand pockets and make a perfect, waterproof jacket. So dumb.

    4 Season Jacket if you layer. Worn it on the field for practice in the rain. Sheds water as GorTex should. I’ve worn it on a scooter in a rain/hail storm. I was dry from the waist up. I’m 6’ 212 XL still fits with a down layer underneath.
  • Great Value

    I rely on this whenever I need to know I will be dry as it is Gore-Tex. Great for layering and a great fit. Can’t beat the value offered by STP on this product.

  • “Does it have an inside pocket?”
    Asked by Lucky Larry from Maine on 9/12/2018 7:07:46 PM
    • No it doesn't but I find the external pocket, adjacent to the main zip, is both generous in size and waterproof

  • “Does this jacket bottom hem dip down in the back?”
    Asked by Pw from Pennsylvania on 12/2/2017 5:51:58 PM
    • No. The hem is the same all the way around the jacket. It's a good jacket.

    • The hem is the same in the back as in the front. If you click on the additional images you can view the back of the product.

  • “Does this jacket provide enough free movement to play golf with it? Also, can the hood be folded up so as not to gather rain if u don't have it up?”
    Asked by Mjd from Nc on 3/6/2016 11:17:27 AM
    • Generally, I would say it does have enough free movement to play golf in, depending on the build of the purchaser and the size purchased. No, the hood cannot be stowed away.
      Answered on 3/6/2016 11:21:53 AM by Tom from North Carolina
    • I do not golf, but I do fly fish in it sometimes, and have had no problems with arm mobility. The hood doesn't have a folding system, but when the jacket is zipped to the top, it does close it off by keeping it tight to the back of your head, keeping water from dumping in. I'm sure you could rig something up to fold it or tuck it into the back of your jacket.
      Answered on 3/6/2016 11:38:07 AM by Hank from Louisville
    • I believe it would be ok for golf, although it is of different, "crisper" material than golf specific jackets. The hood will fold flat against the back, but will not stow away.
      Answered on 3/6/2016 12:52:36 PM by Warren from Ohio
    • Although I have not actually played golf in this jacket, the fit is slightly more snug than other rain jackets made by Marmot (such as the Precip jacket, which I replaced with the Optima). I think I would find it slightly more confining for golf. I actually like my Optima more than my Precip, despite its snugger fit. However, I bought it for hiking rather than playing golf. Regarding the hood, it does not fold up. Having said that, why would you have need of a hood if you intended to wear it folded-up when it's raining?

    • This item has decent freedom of movement.
      Answered on 3/7/2016 10:02:59 AM by Product Specialist from Sierra Trading Post
    • I'm not a golfer, but I've never felt like there was a lack of articulation in the arms and have no problem reaching overhead with it on – so I figure it would be fine for golfing.

      You can kind of scrunch the hood up a little bit so that it's less likely to get water inside the hood, but it doesn't have a pocket for the hood to go into. So, if it's raining more than a drizzle I just go hood up.

    • This jacket is really light weight and great quality. Gortex also. Got jacket for my son. Do not think hood will be a problem. My son wore it in Florida. I think it rolls up

About Marmot

Conceived in a university dorm room by a pair of climbing buddies, Marmot Mountain Works first opened its doors in the spring of 1974 in Grand Junction, Colorado. At the time, the base of operations was a 100-year-old stone building. That same year, the first Marmot down jacket was produced specifically for an action flick called “The Eiger Sanction,” starring legendary actor Clint Eastwood. In the four decades since, Marmot has continued to engineer reliable gear that exceeds the expectations of outdoor athletes. Today, Marmot tents, backpacks, outerwear, clothing and Marmot sleeping bags are still pushing the limits in the planet’s most challenging conditions, from the summits of the world’s highest mountains to the deepest river basins.
