light weight and good fit

Reviewed by woodworker from New Hampshire on Wednesday, September 11, 2013
One caveat - I have not worn this in the rain yet so can't speak to the waterproofness. However, I also own a Marmot PreCip jacket and can compare the two if that helps. This jacket has a slightly trimmer cut than the precip but still has plenty of room for layers underneath. The fabric on this jacket is slightly heavier weight, not ripstop and quieter - less crackle when you move. The waterproof layer bonded to the inside is thicker than on the precip but still pliable and, alas, just as "plasticky" feeling. The jacket is lightweight, pack-able and comfortable. The team red color is a very bright red - I'll certainly be visible even in the fog!
