This is a solid rain jacket that I’ve used on all my trips for the past 4 years. It keeps me warm and relatively dry. It has large vents so you can stay cool when riding with it on. It still tends to get humid / hot, since it doesn’t “breathe” (not so sure anything that’s waterproof does). It could pack smaller, but is not bad considering that it’s waterproof and adds a lot of warmth if raining or blowing.

Mine weighs ~13 oz. A required piece of gear for every bikepacking trip.

I’ve been through two of these jackets in the past 5 years. And for the price they are a good jacket. That being said, even with their excellent venting strategy, I find myself soaked from the inside when the heart is much over 140bpm. In other words, this is a great jacket for downhill but not so good for uphill.

As for durability, I’ve noticed de-lamination of the waterproof layer on both jackets. After talking with Marmot I ran the jackets through the drier and this helped a lot. However, I’m not sure if it’s leaking or if I’m just sweating, but I’m always wet on the inside when I take it off regardless of how much I vent.

The second jacket had a stow-able hood which I really like for biking too. It just folds up into the neck of the jacket with a little velcro tab to hold it in place. This way I can have a good hood for when the ride is over, and get it out of the way when I’m riding.

With the breathing limitations I tend to only use this when it’s down pouring.

Like Scott mentioned, it doesn’t really pack all that small.

I used this jacket for biking,backpacking and splitboarding it breaks the wind well and keeps the rain out but if you are huffing it you will get damp and then maybe cold as I have in using it in the winter.Overall a good jacket for the price but I might try to find something that breaths a bit better.

Hey would you mind letting me know which web host you’re using?

I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different browsers and I must
say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you suggest
a good hosting provider at a fair price? Kudos, I appreciate it!
