super light weight storm jacket
Wow! This jacket weights only 6.62 oz (191 grams) in the womens medium. The fit is the typical fitness jacket fit, tighter than a casual jacket. The sweep (bottom edge) is 40" which may be tight on a 37-39" hip, but the zipper is 2-way so it can be undone to give more room when climbing hills. I am 5'5" and weigh 125 lbs, and my hips are 37". I bought a medium in the red which is a true deep red. The fabric is shiny and a little noisy whereas the Marmot hyper is soft and sueded, but the jacket is 3 oz lighter than the Marmot hyper, a lovely jacket if weight is not critical. The Golite Tumalo Pertex is also lovely and weighs about the same as the Marmot. But I really wanted a super light weight jacket with lower pockets (the Outdoor Research helium only has a chest pocket) and sleeves without elastic, so this is it. It will be in my bicycle panniers or my backpack for the next 6 months--an extended trip.
