Marmot Essential Jacket - Women's
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.

great raincoat,but didn't work

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

My daughter loved the raincoat,but it had too much velcro. she wears scarves a lot and knew they would be ruined. She found a different brand that was very similar but snapped closed in front . It didn't have underarm vents but it was a compromise and less expensive.

Perfect Except Pockets

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

I love this rain jacket - it fits great, looks good, and functions fantastic. I always wear a medium in Marmot, and this jacket wasn't any different. It is form fitting but roomy enough for layers underneath. I ordered the light grey, and was worried about dirt, but it was really easy to clean just following the instructions. The only problem I have is with the location of the pockets - it is not comfortable at all to sit down when you have anything in the pockets. They are right at the hip level and you have to pull the jacket up in order to sit if you have anything in the pocket. This is very inconvenient for every day wear as I usually have my phone/wallet/keys in there. Other than that I do love it!

LOVE THIS JACKET!!!

  • 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.

Great rain jacket

    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.
