Gear Specialist Becky reviews the waterproof and lightweight Marmot Women's Minimalist Jacket in this video.
The durable, lightweight Marmot Women's 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 Women's Minimalist Jacket's features work well on the trail or alpine climbs.
Made from super-lightweight, packable GORE-TEX Paclite fabric, the Women's Minimalist Jacket has excellent waterproof/breathable properties and weighs a mere 14.4 ounces! This year-round shell canshed 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 Women's Minimalist Jacket.
Other features of the Women's Minimalist Jacket include an attached, adjustable hood that can be worn with a helmet, a storm flap over the front zipper with snap/Velcro closure, two zippered hand pockets and an elastic draw cord hem.

Likes: I like the fit, and in my first use in heavy rain, it performed very well. Not as breathable as would hope, but that is the tradeoff for solidly waterproof.
