Id have to say, skip this one...

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

I research things almost to an obsessive point. This jacket seemed to fit the bill - 28in back seam, gore-Tex waterproof, few bells and whistles. First, the back seam isn’t 28in. It’s a bit longer and not what I was looking for. Also I found the shoulders and chest to be a bit constrictive. I was looking for something more like a trucker fit almost for brief forays into rain without something so long as too look unusual but still giving me wp shell protection, layering option would also be nice. Large was far too big even for my larger frame, esp in length. The jacket was not waterproof during my 15 minute walk through moderate nyc rain. It soaked through. Now my torso is wet. I’m not sure why this is happening bc this is supposed to be a wp gore-tex product. Overall disappointed with the fit and reliability of this product.

Tough as nails in the mountains

    This is a bullet proof outer shell for when conditions go south, which tends to happen pretty regularly in the Chugach

    Marmot rain jacket

      I bought this as a rain coat and it performed terribly after 3 uses. My wife bought the precip and her jacket outperformed mine. My shoulders were soaked after a 30 minute hike through drizzle and light rain. I called marmot and they told me I needed to reapply waterproofing after every couple wears in the rain. Works well as a shell but definitely not the GoreTex quality!

      SAME HERE. Worn (gently) maybe a dozen times. After a few sprays from the hose, the outer DWR is saturated and there are large wet spots inside the "Gore Tex" membrane.

      It may be covered by warranty, but I'm not optimistic.

      I bought this jacket because I wanted something that would keep me dry and also serve as a durable layer to protect against briars and the occassional scramble down a rock face. This jacket certainly met and exceeded my expectations! A truly rugged piece of backcountry apparel. If you’re looking for something that will keep you dry, save on weight, and not rip at the first snag of a briar, look no further. My only caution with this jacket goes to my fellow vertically blessed brothers out there. I got this in a medium, and I do wish that it had more length. I tried the large on at a retailer and it was just too baggy (The bane of the tall and skinny man’s existence). After four years of heavy use, I gifted this jacket to a friend and upgraded to the Arc’teryx Beta SV for added back length and that has been perfect for me. However, other than my own personal desire for more length, I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this jacket. It never wetted out on me. The pit-zips provides incredible breathability. It stores nice and small into its own hood. Fantastic piece of equipment!


      Great review! As a fellow 6'4" lanky dude, this was exactly the info I was looking for. Love Arc'teryx stuff and will be taking a closer look.

      I rarely write reviews but I love this jacket. Fits great, I’m 5’ 3”, 150 lbs. medium is perfect. I travel extensively and it’s the perfect weight and can be rolled up and stashed in my backpack. It springs back to life in no time. Blocks the wind,
      and can be worn in a wide range of temperatures. I highly recommend this jacket. Chilly mornings to evening wear.

      Loving it so far.

      Bought this jacket as a rain/wind jacket. I have worn it a couple of times so far. I wear a arc'teryx cerium under it and it is perfect for those chilly windy mornings.

      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.
