Weighing only 6.3 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 Stretch NanoPro Membrain laminated fabric uses micro particles to increase durability and provide a dry touch instead of the clammy feeling provided by many waterproof shells. It's also breathable and incorporates comfortable stretch to move with you.
Other features of the Essence Jacket include 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 elastic 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 lightweight midlayers and baselayers.
