Proprietary MemBrain Strata material is designed for extreme waterproof performance.

Marmot MemBrain Strata Material
Marmot's proprietary waterproof/breathable fabric is built around a lamination technology that rates at an unheard of 20,000mm in waterproof performance and 20,000gr in breathability. The lightweight, packable fabric uses neither lining or three-layer construction similar to many other lamination processes. Rather, MemBrain Strata products have a 2.5-layer construction using non-organic particles on the inside of the lamination to increase durability and provide a dry touch, avoiding the dreaded "clammy jacket interior." The back print pattern is designed to optimize durability and breathability, improving abrasion test scores by up to five times.

Lifetime Warranty
Marmot products include a limited lifetime manufacturer's warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.

About Marmot
In April 1971, University of California Santa Cruz students Eric Reynolds and Dave Huntley were in Alaska on the Juneau ice fields for a Glaciology school project. This was where the idea of Marmot, originally a collegiate climbing club, began. Reynolds and Huntley soon began making prototypes of down products such as vests and sleeping bags in their dorm room in Santa Cruz. By the spring of 1973, Reynolds and Huntley partnered with fellow climber Tom Boyce to open a modest rental and retail location, named Marmot Mountain Works, in a 100-year-old building in Grand Junction, Colorado.

Their first large order was for 108, as the producer called them, "very puffy jackets" for the movie The Eiger Sanction, with Clint Eastwood, which helped make down outerwear fashionable. In 1976, Marmot was one of the first companies to recognize the value of a new technology being developed by W.L. Gore & Associates. Marmot was soon producing waterproof Gore-Tex sleeping bags, with Reynolds and Huntley testing early prototypes by sleeping in meat lockers and under fire sprinklers, and later introduced the waterproof/breathable fabric into nearly all Marmot products.

From humble beginnings, Marmot and its product line have grown over the years, and today the company is headquartered in Rohnert Park, California, with offices all over the world and distribution in more than 60 countries.

If you're standing around for 15 minutes waiting for a train or bus the low-end of comfortable is in the 50's with or without rain.

I bought this jacket for international business travel. In my work I don't have to wear suits on customer visits so I have more options for outerwear. I needed a jacket that was light and thin for packing in my luggage and take up minimal space in the messenger bag I carry with me during the work day. It needed to keep me dry and reasonably comfortable in summer rains and turn back the wind and hold in the warmth in the spring and fall.

This is jacket has done everything I needed it to do in wet Asian summers and cool European springs. In all black it looks great without being too technical or outdoorsy for business wear.

In warm weather the pit zips, the net fabric pockets, the two zippers, the Velcro points and snaps on the storm flap and sleeves all help dump heat during the rain while keeping you dry. It keeps you from marinating, but if you have to be active in hot, wet weather, say walk six blocks in light rain you will sweat in the jacket a bit as there is no large horizontal caped-vent across the back like golf or biking jackets. But if the choice is sweat or get soaked I'll take the former.

In the fall and spring this is an effective windproof outer layer. If you have a good sweater, neck gaiter, light weight gloves and a watch cap you can be comfortable in this into the 40's - IF you're walking. If you're standing around for 15 minutes waiting for a train or bus the low-end of comfortable is in the 50's with or without rain. In both cases the fold away hood really helps keep out the chill. If you expect to deal with temperatures below that, the jacket's length and lack of insulation mean you'll need to pack something warmer. The side pockets are big enough to store the gloves, neck gaiter and hat so you can take them with you.

I live in Seattle and go hiking every weekend. You can imagine the kind of weather that we get...with all the drizzle and all. The temperatures in the mountains are a bit colder with unpredictable weather. I was using an older North Face that trapped way too much heat when it was raining and a lot of water was able to seep through the fabric, which I thought was waterproof at the time. It was most likely a mixture of seepage and sweat.

I ordered this Marmot jacket in black, which seems impossible to find, even at the Marmot store! It's a bit expensive, however, you get what you pay for. I wanted a rain jacket that could breathe and this is the jacket that does allows for this. The fabric itself is able to breathe, but with the underarm and front pocket vents, it makes hiking a breeze.

The hood rolls up into the nicely insulated collar. The zippers are all lined with waterproof materials to avoid water seepage. I bought this jacket knowing that it was thin, but just layer up and no problem. The jacket is extremely light in weight, which makes it easy to roll up and can fit in my tiny camelbak bag, leaving room for snacks even. It's windproof, waterproof, and very breathable. Exactly what I need it for and it does the job to its fullest. Love it. Worthy every penny.

Also, sizing seems to be appropriate. I bought a NorthFace Bionic Jacket in medium and it was hardly covering my belt. This is at least covers my belt, but can be shorter on some individuals. I'm 6 foot, 180 lbs, medium to heavy build.

Color Name: Slate GreySize Name: Large Verified Purchase
Living in the city of wind (Chicago), this jacket is ideal for those rainy days when you are out and about walking the streets. I was originally looking for something a bit heavier for those in-between seasonal days when the temperature gets to be about 35-50 degrees fahrenheit. So when I got the jacket I was a bit dissappointed in its weight/thickness since I feel it is ideal for nothing below 45 degrees (without a base layer). But that I blame on myself for not researching the product a bit more. From a performance perspective this jacket is great. Lightweight so not to burden your movements, strong enough to repel any deluge, the hood has a zip cord so you don't go losing it on those windy days, and underarm zippers to keep you cool on those warmer days. All in all this is a great jacket.

This jackets seems really minimalist, with layers I used it for 5 days of camping in nighttime below freezing temperatures and was never really cold. I get cold easily, too. The jacket requires that you manage it properly with dumping heat when necessary and keeping it tightly closed in weather and cold, but it performs. I am really happy with the purchase. It fits in any pack and is ready when the temperature or percipitation falls. Sizing seems right on.

Highly recommended.

I've enjoyed this jacket's comfort and fit while backpacking and certainly around town. Color and style are modern. Picked mine up from EMS in-store clearance for $95. You'll be pleased with this coat.

By A. Drew Walker on September 24, 2014
I want to give this jacket a 4.5 stars, not 5, and spell out the shortcomings...First off, I was looking for a LIGHTWEIGHT, durable jacket with high tech fabric (ie: waterproof/breathable), a stowable hood, and pit zips, that wont break the bank...If you use that criteria, your list is whittled down to a verrry small group of jackets. I have had Marmot products in the past, and fully respect their craftsmanship, so when this jacket popped up on sale, sold. Now, as far as lightweight goes, this jacket is basically a high tech windbreaker, its one ply fabric, so layering for big weather temp fluctuations is something you need to be cognizant of. I bought the 2013 model and I honestly don't know if its the same fabric they are using/marketing for the newest iteration. The fit was is slightly big, so I ordered one size down and it was perfect. The finish was typical Marmot, taped seams with very clean stitching with no frays, etc, quality zippers, zipper pulls, and cinch cords, beautiful. I have not logged enough time in wet weather to tell of its waterproof longevity, which has been at 100% in normal city rain so far. I can vouch for its windproof ability, its awesome. One ply jackets always seem a bit unnerving in windy weather, because the fabric get right up against your skin (especially if your wearing a short sleeve shirt underneath) and makes you THINK there is little/no protection, but, that's just the psychology of 1 ply. The hood works great, and stows away neatly. The collar is on the high side, but it does block cold air/wind/rain from hitting your lower face, I was a little concerned at first glance, after understanding its functionality in adverse weather though, I really like that feature.Read more ›
