Product Highlights

The durable, lightweight Marmot Minimalist Jacket offers full weather protection for anyone looking for a waterproof/breathable shell they can use in any season. Reliable GORE-TEX Paclite fabric delivers all-season performance and the Minimalist Jacket's features work on the trail or alpine climbs.

Made from super-lightweight, packable GORE-TEX Paclite fabric, the Minimalist Jacket has excellent waterproof/breathable properties and weighs a mere 15 ounces! This year-round shell sheds rain, sleet and snow without a problem and under arm pit zips provide increased ventilation on sweaty uphill climbs. The Minimalist's lightweight fabrication and simplified design take up a "minimal" amount of space in your pack while offering excellent protection when the weather gets rough. The phrase "less is more" rings true with the Minimalist Jacket.

Other features of the Minimalist Jacket include an attached, adjustable hood that can be worn with a helmet, a storm flap over the front zipper with snap closure, an external chest pocket with a water resistant zipper, two zippered hand pockets and an elastic draw cord hem.

  • Austin B. Auburn WA

    Likes: Build quality, durability, color and fit. I've worn this jacket allot over the past year and it still looks new. Backcountry Edge always has great deals, and great reviews, I always reccomended them to my friends.

    Dislikes: Nothing, I wear it all the time and love it

  • Anonymous Backcountry Edge Customer

    Likes: I loved everything about this jacket. I was first looking at cheaper waterproof jacket like Marmot Precip and NorthFace one that's similar price around $100. I decided to go with this one because Precip had narrower arm so I thought I couldn't layer inside the jacket. This jacket is also better because it is Goretex. It should last much longer than those cheaper 2.5 membrane that will peal off over time.

    Dislikes: Nothing

  • Gabriel M. Sunnyvale CA

    Likes: The comfort, fit, waterproofing system, and maneuverability is what sold me on this jacket. I initially tried out the Marmot Precip jacket XL size to accommodate under layers but for me the arms were to snug limiting my range of motion. Once I tried on the minimalist jacket XL with under layers, i had complete range of motion while still being comfortable. My regular size is L as I am 5'11 180lbs, so the XL was perfect for me.

    Dislikes: What others had mentioned but not too much of a big deal, the velcro for the pockets seem to get in the way sometimes especially if you have fleece gloves on or similar. But you can do a quick fix by adding a velcro piece to the top side of the velcro and your good.

    Likes: I love this jacket. It is extremely light and very waterproof. I stood out in the rain for 2 hours and it did not leak at all. The fit is awesome. I'm 5'11" and about 155 lbs. and I wear a medium and it fits me great but leaves enough space for layering.

    Dislikes: Breathability is not as great as many others I have worn but the extreme waterproofing makes up for it.

  • Michael B. Hudson OH

    Likes: Great design...received XL size today, just in time for a 5 mile hike in a driving wind and rain storm. Worked very well: totally dry inside; good evap of perspiration; chest pocket kept cell dry; hood cinching allows hood to turn with head to maintain clear vision to the sides; also, hood brim was excellent design for keeping water from eyes; hem cinch kept jacket tight to torso and kept driven rain out; armpit vents were great to let in a bit of fresh air.. I am 5'11" and 200lb: originally ordered Large which was trim but fit well, but I wanted more room for cold weather layering. X-Large works perfectly for me.

    Dislikes: Probably just a matter of practice, but had a little difficulty with one-handing the zippers on armpit vents. Also, small point, but a stow-pocket would be nice addition to the design (but, after all, it is named "minimalist"! :)

    On balance, it worked extremely well...I am very satisfied.

  • . Lewes DE

    Likes: well made, lightweight, runs a bit small. replacing one I lost. Works great in the rain. Used it on two backpacking trips in the rain.. stayed dry.

    Dislikes: does the job it was designed for-not an all purpose all season jacket unless you use other layers. can get a bit warm in spring and summer rain.
