Is this a tight or roomy fit?  Should I go for bigger size to allow for fleece/jacket underneath or do I assume this is already taken into account in the sizing?

Asked by: Patagonia traveler
I would size up, it is slim fitting, but not tight, so I guess it depends on how you like your jacket to fit.  I can wear a light fleece or sweatshirt under mine and I sized up.

It looks short, just reaching top of hips. I'm long waisted, guessing it's not a good item for me. What is the measurement pit to hem?

Asked by: wever
The back length of this jacket is 26.5 inches. The measurement from pit to hem is 19 inches.

So some people have said this jacket it amazing, keeps them dry in the worst rain conditions, other claim their sleeves get wet underneath, i had the wet sleeve experience. is it a bad batch, or just the way i wear the jacket?

Asked by: heatherb
We have not heard overwhelming feedback about this jacket not being waterproof. The jacket should be entirely waterproof, including the sleeves. If you are having issues with the waterproofing on your jacket, you are welcome to return or exchange it. Our full return policy can be found online here:

The tag says that the hood works three ways but no instructions. What 3 ways?

Asked by: Wolfewolfe6
On the back of the hood is the volume control. Squeeze the toggle to tighten or loosen the hood to fit with or without a helmet. The other two adjustments are at either side of the neck. Pull the bungee cords to pull the hood around your face. When you get the adjustment you want, pull the bungee down in the slot to lock it in.

I'm deciding between the Talusphere and Motility jackets.  Besides the price, what are the differences between these 2 jackets regarding performance and fit? The "Compare" feature on REI's website didn't show much difference.

Asked by: Ja9Lee
The Motility jacket is heavier than the Talushere. The Motility has 4-way stretch which gives you more range of motion.

Tiring to decide between the Talusphere jacket and the Marmot Minimalist jacket. Suggestions?

Asked by: Chizler
The Talusphere and Minimalist jackets are both constructed with 2.5 layer waterproof membranes. Also, both use pit zips for increased ventilation and adjustable hoods, cuffs and hem drawcords. These jackets are very similar as the matching features suggest and will offer very similar performance.
