Great Gortex Size Medium

Verified Buyer Reviewed by justin from Massachusetts on Thursday, October 23, 2014
Great Jacket. Received it on a Thursday and took it fishing on Saturday where we got caught in a pretty back down pour. Jacket worked exceptionally well, obviously its brand new and the gortex beads the water off so I'd like to see how its working a year from now. Quality is great and appears to be tight on all seams. As a heads up there is a rubber coating on the inside of this jacket so its not like some of the other gortex shells you'll see out there (hyperlite is different) but i think this is for the better with regards to keeping the water off you but may not breath as well for a summer/late spring jacket. We'll see.

This was the third Marmot rain jacket i tried and all fit a bit different. After looking at the marmot website i realized their jackets have different fits and the Optima is a "regular" fit. I'm 5-6 165# and the medium fit perfect. I was able to put it over my waders with a stuffed chest pack and it wasn't too tight in the arm pits for casting. I tried the Hyperlite in a medium which is a "athletic fit" and i couldnt move my arms with just a t-shirt underneath.

Looking forward to many days on the water and in the woods to put it to the full test but so far real happy.
