    Marmot Minimalist Rain Jacket - Men's is rated 4.7143 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems Great... Purchased this jacket new for a camping trip in the Redwoods. With less rain than expected; the jacket was subjected to casual use and light steady rain for approx. 15hrs. It kept me dry and comfortable and I was generally pleased with its performance. However, upon inspection after this single use, the seam taping along the zipper interior began to peel away. I found this quite disappointing, especially given the price of the item.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Rain Jacket Ever. I work outside and needed a good rain jacket. This turned out to be a great rain jacket. This rain jacket is light enough that you can wear a t-shirt underneath in the summer and warmer layers underneath in colder weather. I highly recommend this if your looking for a rain jacket. Well worth the money. Best rain jacket I've ever owned. Nice cell phone pocket on the chest and velcro to close tight around the wrists. Runs a little small. I normally wear an XL, but got the XXL and it fits perfect!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket Great jacket - purchased and wore in a torrential downpour the next day. No leaks, great hood that stays with your head. Awesome jacket. Large fits perfect(almost) a little tight although I'm 6'4 230 i like jackets to fit and not be baggy xl was just slightly too baggy for my like. Awesome jacket overall very happy with my purchase. Great value for a goretex jacket

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy with the Marmot Minimalist! I got to put this jacket to use as soon as I bought it and was impressed with it right away. Since then I've had a chance to wear it with just a t-shirt as well layering it over a t-shirt, long sleeve t-shirt and wool shirt in a hard rain and stayed warm and dry without working up a sweat. I've had other Gore Tex jackets, high and low end, and have never felt as comfortable as I have in this one. I generally wear a Large but went with and X-Large so I could layer and it fits well with or without layering.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a shell! I've been looking for a rain jacket for quiet some time and found that the Marmot Minimalist Jacket is the, somewhat affordable, and right match for my needs. I must say that this jacket blocks wind perfectly, and if layered right underneath you will stay warm in gusty cold times between 20°F and low sub zero temperatures - Seriously! Especially if you are moving a lot this jackets, will not disappoint you. Long arm pit vents allow for great breathability, and although it wasn't designed for biking in - I found it to be quiet nice and comfortable. It isn't extra long in the back, but I'm not a fan of that any wayways. The chest pocket is quiet large, my Samsung Note 2 fits inside with even more room to spare and since the zipper is taped, this pocket stays truly dry; whereas, the two hand pockets are not and will not stay 100% dry in downpour-uses for over an hour. Sadly, the main zipper is not taped either and only protected by a flap with a few velcro parts. This really is the only complaint I have, since small amounts of water seep through in an extended time in the wet. The jacket will ceep you dry, comfortable, and warm if needed. In my opinion, if you plan on being outside for the entire day or even longer you should expect to get a little wet anyways. Water will not come through if you're out walking for 1-2 hours. When cycling, water might come through even after 30 min, depending on wind and amount of rain. With a base and mid layer underneath, I felt nice, warm, and stayed dry going dh-skiing all day long. The lower drawcord help a lot to keep the heat in, and most snow out. With just a baselayer underneath, the jacket felt comfortable while riding 100miles to the coast in a, wet, late-fall tour - on climbs and when it didn't rain I could easily open or close the arm pit vents with one hand, allowing me fast and comfortable control of my temperature. What else can I say? It looks great! Several people complimented me on this rain jacket. It packs down to a size of ~a half loaf of bread. I'm wearing size L, am 5'11", 210lb, athletic built and the jacket fits well, not bulky, with enough room for layering. Also, the hood is large enough to go over my bike and mountaineering helmet and is adjustable for comfortable use without a helmet. Had the jacket for 10 months now, no signs of wear, although I have put it through a lot of bushwhacking. Enjoy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Watch my VIDEO REVIEW ON YOUTUBE! Watch my YouTube review, I even get under the waterfall! Great coat, no complaints except that the hood doesn't roll up into the collar, but even that is just to cut down on the weight.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great rain shell! Great shell. Fair price. Would have had a 5 star rating if not for minor glitch of having to re-Velcro the sleeve cuffs. Otherwise, great stuff.
