Updated for 2014! Weighing only 6 ounces, the fully waterproof/breathable Marmot Essence Jacket is a fantastic ultra-lightweight option for hikers, backpackers and climbers seeking lightweight and compressible protection from wet and windy weather.
Marmot's proprietary NanoPro MemBrain 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 an elastic drawcord hem offer weather-tight protection. Marmot’s Angel-Wing movement reduces ride-up and allows freer arm movement.
Available in a variety of size and color options, the Marmot Essence Jacket includes reflective accents and has an athletic fit that layers well over light to medium weight fleece, sweaters or base layers.
Styles available: Large Black, Medium Black, Small Black, XLarge Black
