Great Jacket

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

Highly recommended as an everyday cold weather jacket. It’s not bulky, it’s stylish, warm and durable. I bought one in black and liked it so much I also bought one in grey. I’ve worn one of these two jackets almost everyday in the fall and winter for two years now. It’s a perfect jacket for running errands, going to the store, etc... it is warm, but it isn’t a jacket I’d wear for extended periods of time in very cold weather. Fits true to size for average build.

Perfect jacket!!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: l

This jacket is warm and fits great!!! I waited and researched but I am so glad to have waited. Very light and comfortable. Great buy!!!!

Sleeves huge and baggy

  • Size Bought: medium

The jacket would be perfect but for the sleeves. The jacket is a nice, slim fit in the torso but the arms are ridiculously long and very, very baggy. Returning.

Love the Marmot Gravity Coat

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

My Gravity jacket is the first piece of Marmot clothing I purchased. I wanted something different…something different than all North Face and Columbia coats found everywhere. I love my Marmot Gravity coat. It is well constructed and light weight. It definitely blocks the wind and rain. It is not the coat I would choose for a really cold Iowa winter day but it is the perfect coat for those days when you don’t have to bundle up. Since buying this coat I have bought several pieces of Marmot clothing. I am a fan.

Runs very small!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: large

Just received my Gravity jacket and initial impression is that its well made and should be fine for the colder weather. I'm 5'6, 180 pounds, 42" chest and the large was comfortable size for me, however, if anything it runs small. Medium which I sometimes fit would have definitely been too small.
Update to my initial review 12/3/17, Definitely runs very small. Arms and chest are tight if I wear a ski sweater. XL would have fit better if it wasn't too long. I'd return it if I didn't buy it during the summer and have it for 4 months.

Favorite soft shell ever

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

This jacket fits just the way I like it. It is perfect for the "not too hot, not too cold" Colorado weather. It breaths well and at the same time protects from the wind chill. It has a slim tailor to it and it is not too bulky at all.

Great shell/jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

While some will call this a "shell" I've been using it strictly as a jacket and have zero complaints. The majority of the time I'm outside for 30-45mins with only a short sleeve tshirt on and don't feel to cold in mid 30 degree temps. I love the color and the functionality of this jacket. It has room that if I want to wear a heavier hoodie, it has room and doesn't feel too bulky.

Warm soft shell

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

Wonderful coat with plenty of room at the armpits/ shoulders- something I really appreciate. A very warm and windproof jacket made of a substantial fabric. Should last for years!

Awesome feedback!

Great jacket

    I bought this because the cut was a lot like my North Face Apex jacket. The apex jacket is great but it didn't stop the wind or do very much to insulate. This jacket blocks the wind and had kept my dry when I have been caught in light rain. Only down side to the jacket is that you might have to go one size larger depending how you want the jacket to fit.

    Great review!

    Almost a great jacket

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

    I tried to replace my discontinued 8 year old Marmot Sharp Point without success. This jacket is much tighter in the chest, no room for a sweater. I am slim and even with the waist cord fully extended, the jacket was too tight at the bottom.

    Great All-Around Soft Shell

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    Bought this to replace a TNF fleece that had served as my casual work jacket for about 4 years. Wanted something a little sleeker that wouldn't grab fuzz like fleece. Looked at all the usual players and decided on the Marmot Gravity and overall it's a great jacket.

    The construction is absolutely solid. Fabric has a great feel and look to it, and it's very functional in terms of pockets and layout. It seems warm for what it is, but I'm in TX and have yet to wear it in a true cold environment. I also like/appreciate that the logos are subtle, not so in-your-face as some other brands. I'm paying for your product, not for the chance to advertise for you.

    I'm 5'9", 175" with a fairly athletic build. I 32" waist, 42" coat and normally wear either a large (athletic cut) or medium (regular cut) shirt. I ordered this jacket in Large and I think it's about right. It's not a tight fit, by any means, and the arms are about 3" too long, but when zipped up it's actually a very tailored fit in the chest/armpits, so I seriously doubt that a Medium would have worked. I don't mind the arms being a little long because with the velcro cuff adjustments it's fine, and with the added length the sleeves don't ride up when reaching/climbing/etc.

    I would rate this jacket a solid 4.5 stars. My only wish is that the fit was a little more trim in the large, but I'm perpetually in size hell (medium too small, large too big) so I don't really fault Marmot on this one. Highly recommend.

    Matt, your reviews are what make this community!

    Great all-around midweight jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    Was in the market for a utility midweight jacket and found it in the Gravity. Warm, fairly light, water-resistant. I also like the athletic cut for those more high-intensity activities. Good for layering or independent use on cool days.

    Marmot Gravity Softshell

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    I gave this jacket as a gift and they love it. The sizing is great, athletic fit, great softshell. Not intended for big bulky layers underneath it. Repels wind/water well.

    My New Favorite

      I originally purchased the Mountain Hardwear Tech ii jacket, but returned it for the gravity by marmot. This jacket is amazing. Super warm, great fit, and well made. Marmot is my go to brand, hands down.

      Runs Small

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

      Very Nice, well made jacket, but for a large size, it definitely runs small. Uncomfortable to wear with a standard ski sweater.

      Great jacket

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

      I bought this jacket 3 yrs ago and it still looks great. I like the athletic fit and have used it extensively in the Northeast winters with appropriate layering. Good quality materials.

      Great jacket but....

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: L

      Awesome jacket if you like a slim or athletic fit. Reasonably warm but no good under 30 degrees unless you use a good base-layer. The small arm/should pocket isn't very useful. I used this jacket all the time for about 3 years before the zipper stopped working(wont stay zipped at the bottom). All that being said I love(d) this jacket.

      Nice jacket

        Warm, repels water nicely, collar a little high, but comes in handy when weather is foul...

        Great jacket, strange fit.

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

        Just received my jacket, it's wonderful! Fit is very snug and close to the body, narrowest part is at the waist line and ribs area, sleeves and arm pits are space full. It is extremely wind resistant, went with a T-shirt underneath at low 50s and I was very warm.
        One strange thing, even though size is perfect, the jacket seems to be a bit short, reaching my upper hip line instead on mid hip line, like most jackets do.
        I truly recommend this jacket.

        How to Measure:
        For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
        Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
        Measure around the thickest part of your neck, holding tape loosely.
        Measure from the center of your back to your wrist with arms held out.
        Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
        Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
        Using pants that fit well, measure the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.
