Weighing only 6 ounces, the fully waterproof/breathable Marmot Essence Jacket is an excellent ultra-lightweight option for hikers, backpackers and climbers seeking reliable, light and compressible protection from wet and windy weather.
Marmot's proprietary MemBrain Strata 2.5 layer fabric uses micro particles to increase durability and provide a dry touch instead of the clammy feeling provided by many waterproof shells. The micro-stitched, 100% seam-taped Essence Jacket will keep you dry even in a downpour.
Other features of the Essence Jacket include drop shoulder seams to eliminate chafing under shoulder straps, integrated cooling vents, water resistant zippers and a single chest pocket. An adjustable hood lets you fine tune the fit and a laminated, wire brim keeps rain out of your face. Asymmetrical cuffs with Velcro adjustments and a drawcord hem offer weather-tight protection.
Available in a variety of size and color options, the Marmot Essence Jacket has an athletic fit that layers well over light to medium weight fleece, sweaters or base layers.
