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.

Real Customer Reviews
- Great ratings match great product
Likes: Light weight, cost-effective Gore-Tex rain shell.
Dislikes: The interior has no lining next to the shell membrane/fabric. While an unfortunate design decisions, this was clearly communicated by both Marmot and Backcountry Edge so it shouldn't put off the aware buyer.
- Perfect and not expensive
Likes: Perfect fit, extremely lightweight and looks durable at the same time. It's the best choice if you want to have a lightweight and not expensive jacket and all the benefits of using GORE-Tex membrane. I am really happy to use it.
Dislikes: Cloth might be torn if you use it in a really extreme way. But it's enough for most cases to stay ok.
- 2nd Minimalist
Likes: This is my second Marmot Minimalist Jacket. My first one is bright blue and great for camping, and this black color is great for the city. Same great waterproofing, fit, and quality. Love the pit zips. My go to rain and outdoor shell.
Dislikes: A little baggy with only a t shirt, but the trade off is I can fit a mid layer and puffy underneath if it's really cold.
- Initial size ordered was too small, but the exchange was handled quickly and easily. The large size fit perfectly. Exactly what we were looking for for waterproof hiking.
Likes: Hood with mouth cover to keep cold and rain out.
Vent zippers under arms to allow breathing.
Dislikes: none yet
- Solid Jacket But...
Likes: Great Fit - True to size
Dislikes: not as breathable - gets very hot quickly even with ventilation zippers open under arms.
- Great all-weather shell
Likes: So good quality, durable, waterproof, breath very well and looks good enough for daily wear.
Dislikes: Velcro could be better quality
- Great rain protection
Likes: Quiet lightweight fabric. Almost Impenetrable. I am 5'10" and 270lbs and the XXL fits great. Good price on sale.
Likes: Fits Well, I like how the collar will stay down when the hood is down. I had a North face gortex rain jacket and the collar would constantly poke you in the neck. On this jacket it comfortably stays out of the way until you zip the jacket all the way up.
Dislikes: I knew it didn't have one before I purchased it, but I would have liked it to be able to zip into one of it's own pockets for storage. I've seen that on many other rain jackets.
- Great lightweight rain jacket
- Great balance
Likes: Actually waterproof
fully adjustable hood
will work year-round
zippers work easily
Dislikes: crinkles a bit, slightly heavy, no interior pockets
