MarmotEssential Jacket - Women's

Nothing less, nothing more.

Since rain has a propensity to fall on virtually anything from parades to parties, the folks over at Marmot crafted the Women's Essential Jacket to keep you covered in the event your event gets rained on. Fashioned with the superlight yet totally waterproof Gore-Tex Paclite material, this minimalist jacket is both pragmatic and charming with its slimming silhouette and a longer cut that provides extra coverage when the skies open up. In addition to its bombproof Gore-Tex construction, the Essential is equipped with an adjustable hood and fully taped seams which ensure that no water can permeate its surface while the underarm ventilation system encourages optimal body temperature regulation, should that chilly rain turn into a warm drizzle.

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

It is perfect ! Length to mid thigh, so it covers more than just derriere! Sizing is spot on- I wear size 2 typically, but like to have room to move and/or layer.
I was worried small would be too tight or constricting - but it is the perfect balance, not huge so I would have to wrap it around me, and just right for one or two layers underneath. I love it, for wind, rain, or both.

Pretty light weight, nice colors, and great fit. Got this as a gift for my mom and she loves it. Cut is a little long so it helps to keep the pants dry. She is 5'10 and went with the XL for some more room layering underneath.

    I found this to be a very well designed jacket and is great for raining days. It’s a perfect weight and has a nice waist shaping and the pockets are perfect.
