The website is quite confusing on the products. The womens' & mens' are all in the same web site. I bought one for myself and another one for my husband and that's how I found out the difference. If there is a zipper near the Marmot logo, then it is a man. The woman jacket has only side pockets. The man's is more boxy look but the woman's has a shape to it.

I bought a woman's Team Red (it's a VERY bright red colour), size S. Measurements:
inner armpit to the bottom of the jacket :17"
inner left armpit to inner right armpit: 20"
inner armpit to the end of the sleeve: 21.5"

A man's black, size L. Measurements:
inner armpit to the bottom of the jacket length:18"
inner left armpit to inner right armpit: 24"
inner armpit to the end of the sleeve: 23"

I hope this helps.

I use this jacket to commute by bike to work, and I've had it for about a month. For biking specifically, it's really great - it has a slim fit so that it isn't blowing in the wind, it has nice long sleeves (I have long arms and so my wrists end up cold if I'm riding a bike), and the hood tucks nicely behind your head so that it doesn't catch the wind. The jacket is long enough that it isn't riding up your back when you're on a bike - though it doesn't have the extra long back like you find with bike-secific jackets (which I don't like). I wear a Marmot light jacket underneath, and then just a T-shirt, and I've been comfortable down to about 35-40 degrees so far.

Fit - I'm 6'2" 165 pounds, and the large fits me perfectly. This isn't a baggy bulky jacket. It has a minimal weight to it, but feels substantial enough to be more than just a rain coat. It's truly a wind-proof water proof shell (thanks to Hurricane Sandy, I know this for sure!). As an outer layer, I think this thing will get me through the winter.

I don't really have any negatives to say about it.

This jacket is everything I hoped it would be. Lightweight, waterproof, and as simple as can be. As a hiker, kayaker, and living in one of the rainiest places on the planet I needed a jacket that i could always carry with me over mountains and through killer valley's, and this is it. Fits nice even for the small guy like myself. Great jacket, pac-lite fabric feels like it should last. Well done marmot!

This is an all around winner 4 season jacket. Perfect for summer storms and great when layered for winter. That is the main reason I purchased it. I wanted a good breathable jacket to block the wind and moisture from the winter storms while hiking and backpacking. Great price!

It's definitely minimalist. If you need a gore-tex rain coat for the min price this is your solution. Make sure to buy one size up from usual as they run small, especially on the bottom.

Great jacket which is extremely lightweight and can roll up in my backpack. Good fit with a good sized hood.

I'm a huge Marmot fan, but this jacket was disappointing.
First impression: Wow, a lightweight rain jacket that fits comfortably and moves with zero restriction!
Impression after the first rain storm: Huh, a rain jacket that isn't waterproof...

Seriously, I have to assume that either 1) I got a defective jacket or 2) All these positive reviews are from people who have not used it in the rain.

When I tried this on in REI, I was blown away by how well it fit and moved. It was much more comfortable than any other Goretex jacket in the store. I took it home and waited for rain, just so I could walk around in it and not get soaked. I live in Oregon, so I didn't have to wait long... The first time I took it outside in a real downpour, I noticed the jacket sticking to my forearms like they were wet inside. I thought maybe I had gotten water up the sleeve somehow, but then it got worse. My arms were wet and then it started soaking though to my shoulders. when I got back inside, I took it off and sure enough, water had leaked through the seams in the arms and across my back leaving my shirt very wet. I would assume this was just a quality control issue, but it sounds like lots of other people have this problem too... Sent it back; I might try another one just to see if it works any better, but I will never have real confidence that the seams wont start to leak.

Test this jacket before you really need to rely on it to keep you dry! You may be end up very wet/cold/disappointed.

I bought this for a backpacking trip across Europe. It's a very well made jacket. It keeps water out, and keeps you warm if it is cold outside. The only problem I have with the jacket is that the sleeves are absurdly, disproportionately long. I had to roll the sleeves in about two inches for it to hit my wrist, which looks awkward.

Fanastic jacket! Durable, pack able, great functionality (pit vents w/ zippers, front wallet pocket, snug hood and useful synch ties), stylish and affordable. The warranty for life is pretty awesome too and you don't even need to register anymore. Way to go Marmot! Only thing I am disappointed with is the fitting. The jacket could be a bit slimmer in the mid section and the sleeves.

This jacket is a perfect outer layer for cool to cold wet weather when you are moderately active. For more informative user feedback, go to youtube and view some of the testimonials of professional mountaineers and outdoor adventure guides on youtube. The Marmot Minimalist jacket sets the standard for a high quality outer shell that is also an outstanding value, even at full retail pricing. This jacket will be your friend for many, many years. Enjoy...

I just received this in "Team Red" and unlike the photo's on Amazon. It does not have the interior chest pocket or the headphone cord access hole. Although, I didn't buy it for those features, I thought to mention it for anyone looking for that type of features in a jacket. This jacket is light, comfortable and kept me dry while I was walking in a down poor for 20 minutes. The fit is great and so far I am happy with my purchase. Can't go wrong with a Marmot!!
