Marmot Trail Wind Hooded Jacket - Men's

Ready when you need it.

Anyone who has ventured to the top of the Continental Divide in summer or the coast in spring knows that, even though the sun and air are warm, winds can make that nice weather feel unseasonable. That's why those same people trust the Marmot Men's Trail Wind Hooded Jacket and keep it stashed in their pack, luggage, or vehicle. Ultralight, DWR-coated polyester blocks wind and sheds light precipitation while Marmot's Angel Wing Movement design keeps your photo-poses comfortable whether you're on top of a peak or on a rocky shore. Active venting keeps you cool on the way up, and the jacket can also be stowed into its own zippered chest pocket when not needed. 360-degree reflectivity lets you be seen when you get back to the trailhead after sunset.

Good Lightweight Windbreaker

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

Light windbreaker, minimal design so it packs down well. The single pocket is fairly large, so it is very easy to stuff the jacket into the pocket...the downside of this is that the jacket could easily stuff down to half the packed size if the pocket were smaller. The venting under the arms is nicely designed, it hides away when your arms are down. The blue color is not crazy but looks cool in sunlight.

If you are wanting a windbreaker this is great. If you are wanting a rain jacket or something that resists all elements you are not looking at the right product. It's perfect for when you're hiking and it's windy on the side of the mountain, but not necessarily cold enough that you want to put on more warm layers.

Great wind layer

    This is a great jacket to keep in your bag in case the wind picks up and you need some extra warmth. It packs down to a very small size so you can fit it into a fanny pack or something. Don't expect it to keep you dry in a real downpour though, its designed to be a breathable jacket.

    Kinda just OK

      I got this thinking it would be my go to shell in the summer that would cover all bases, with one packable shell. While I have found it has been useful as a windshell for early morning mountain bike rides, it gets hot pretty quickly and does nothing in the rain. If I were going camping for a long weekend or a backpacking trip I'd rather just bring a proper waterproof shell for rain and a lighter material long sleeve shirt that breathes better for highly aerobic endeavors. When it wears out, I'll pay up for a better version of this product.

      Great Fall Riding Jacket

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

      I've been using this in cold riding conditions all fall and it has just the right amount of venting to keep from feeling like a sweat box like other wind jackets. It repels light rain pretty well too!

      Does this feel restrictive when in riding position, ie better suited for standing/walking/running or do your arms and shoulders have room to bend?

      My favorite wind breaker

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

      Exceeded my expectations. I thought this would be one of those paper thin jackets for easy winds. Nope. I've used this for early morning trail runs and hikes where the wind won't die down and it's kept me comfortable every time. Has great venting and kept me dry inside and out. Also packs down to extremely small. This jacket is going with me on every adventure.

      Awesome Wind Layer

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

      When I first saw these wind layers I was dubious about their value. However, I took it on a multi-day trek to Patagonia and I'm a fan. Great as a windbreaker and for sprinkles, it also breathes extremely well. It weights next to nothing and packs to a small size so it's a no-brainer to bring on a trip. In some ways more useful than a polypro warming layer.

      I'll definitely be taking these on all my alpine rock climbing trips for windy belays.

      However, when the "real weather" hits you definitely want a true waterproof rain jacket.

      Serves its purpose perfectly

      I love this light jacket. I've used it mostly for my chilly early morning runs and does a great job by protecting me from wind and conserving heat in my torso. Does fine when it sprinkles outside and also takes on normal wind gusts... a bit more of rain or windy conditions though, and you will be needing something else!... which is fine, you should buy something else if you're looking for a waterproof and strong windbreaker jacket. This one serves its purpose perfectly.
      After 2-3 years of use during winter morning runs, the Marmot logo is coming out though...
