Why We Built The Marais Rain Jacket

We see no sense in foregoing our fashion sense over a little rain. Instead of reaching for that bulky raincoat we've had for years, we decided to shake things up with our Marais Rain Jacket. Not only is it fully waterproof, as well as lightweight and stowable, it also boasts a flattering silhouette to keep us looking our best even in the rain.

  • An elegant rain shell for traveling under gray skies
  • Waterproof, breathable membrane keeps you dry in stormy weather
  • Lightweight materials stow easily in your pack between rainy spells
  • Mid-thigh length provides generous coverage while commuting
  • Mesh ventilation at back yoke helps you dump excess body heat
  • Cinchable waist offers a flattering silhouette and seals in warmth
  • Coattails and layered yoke add unique style to rainy days
  • Standard fit leaves room for layers if temperatures drop

Runs very small!

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: L/XL

I checked the size chart before ordering and opted for a large so I would have plenty of room for layers. It was way too small--barely zipped! I traded it in for an XL, but it still did not fit well. When I walked with it fully zipped it bunched up at the bottom in the front because of the close cut. Back it went. Very bummed because the design is cute.

The size chart needs to be revisited. I normally wear an 8/10. The size chart says L fits a 12/14 and the XL a 16.

This jacket has a nice design. Since this is a longer jacket and sits mid to lower thigh depending on your height, a recommended change would be to add the ability to unzip the jacket from the bottom. It is a light weight thin jacket in comparison to other waterproof jackets I have owned. I am 5'3 120lbs and purchased a size up (medium) so that I could wear a heavier layer underneath. The jacket seems to run a bit small because anything thicker than a long sleeve shirt feels snug. Overall, I am pleased with the purchase but glad that I waited to pay $80 instead of the full price. I have used it while running errands in the rain and stayed dry. Have not put it to the test on a rainy hike yet.

Like the jacket, way too small!

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: L

The sizing chart is way off for this item. I normally wear a M/L (size 10). According to the sizing chart, the L is supposed to fit a size 12/14 but I ordered it anyway after reading some reviews saying the jacket runs small. The L barely zipped!

I like the coverage of this jacket and the vents, but now have to return it for a bigger size.

Sized Wrong

  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL

I wear a medium. I wanted a raincoat that would be large enough for layers underneath AND would cover my camera. I bought an XL. It fits like a medium. Room for only thin layers and NO extra room to cover a camera. Very disappointing.

A flattering raincoat!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

Fits amazing and keeps you dry. It’s perfect!

Update! This jacket just gets better and better. Worn it now for awhile during some crazy downpours. Keeps you completely dry. Definitely recommend

Great Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: xs

Grabbed this to replace a North Face long rain jacket. This is a much lighter and softer material but feels durable all the same. Little long in the arms but I won't change the size bc the rest fits well - I rolled the sleeve once and it's perfect - no liner shows. Got the green and it matches the picture. Flattering fit and really like the longer length - I would definitely recommend!

Perfect PNW Rain Jacket!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XS

It is hard to find the perfect rain jacket and even harder to find one that is longer, but yet here I am writing this review! I needed a jacket to wear while visiting my friend in Washington, I wanted something longer that would look cute but still offer the protection from the elements that is needed in the PNW. This jacket fit the bill and more! So perfect my friend is even going to snag one. I am petite and finding a jacket that does not make me look shorter is a huge task, this jacket is very flattering due to the coattail cut in the back, the high low cut of the front and back, and the adjustable waist cinch. The back of the jacket (as seen in the photos) has a cute almost layered look which hides the mesh ventilation so it is easy to dump heat out of the back. It is technically a waterproof material and beads water nicely, I recommend making sure to wash it in tech specific wash and take care of it properly which will extend the life of the jacket. Definitely recommend!

The perfect Rain Jacket

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

This jacket is beautiful. I bought it in black and my quest for the perfect rain jacket is now over! Highly recommend. Fit and cut is beautiful.

    How to Measure:
    For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
    Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
    Have someone measure from the center of the back neck down the arm, with arm slightly bent, to the wrist bone.
    Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
    Measure from the crotch to the floor with no shoes.
    Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
