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

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.Read more ›
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.
This delivered perfectly.
I've been using it in rainy Wellington NZ for the last few months and loving it. It is the perfect weight, fits me nicely and has zippers so you can increase the airflow if it's too hot. I actually find myself getting almost too warm inside this despite it being so thin and light. It's magical. I highly recommend it. It also looks pretty slick and professional.
