Marmot rain jacket 4.5/5.0

Reviewed by frankie from Lost Coast, CA on Thursday, February 13, 2014
The color of this jacket is beautiful! I purchased an XS and it is true to size (I'm 5'6 115 lbs). I am able to wear a sweater down jacket beneath it for chilly mornings and nights without a problem. The quality is the same as a previous marmot jacket I had purchased through REI which underwent heavy rain/snow use in 4 years. I would have loved to seen better product pictures when deciding on purchasing this jacket. My previous jacket had an inside stash pocket apart from 2 front pockets. Also the front pockets on this model take some getting use to as they are positioned higher up (at about mid waist) than a normal jacket. I feel they weren't designed well because the pocket space extends above where you would put your hands. Not sure what you would put in there.

As far as weather it works great in keeping me dry, and has arm vents if I get too warm. Rain drops do not soak into the material. I will still continue to buy Marmot and would recommend their rain jacket line to friends.
