Running for Shade
- July 8 2010
This is an unusually light weight jacket with a long length that makes it perfect for Florida's wet summers and cooler winters. It is also a little dressier when I have to wear a skirt. It's easy to pack and can be taken along on northern trip and it is roomy enough to wear over a fleece. I fell in love with it when I first saw it. The "Raven" color is a nice dark chocolate and an excellent alternative to black. I am thrilled to have one of my own now!

Well worth it
I originally bought this rain jacket because of the added length, which is great. I walked all morning in the pouring rain and was kept totally dry in this jacket - I absolutely recommend it. I'm 5'4 and 125 lbs and I ended up fitting into a medium, which also fits well enough to layer a fleece underneath; length hits just above the knee. Once again Marmot does not disappoint!

A great option for a stylish longer length rain jacket/coat that is as useful when traveling as well as for running around the city in the rain. Great for packing and the attached hood is a plus. Keep in mind when ordering that jacket is rather fitted in the torso/hip area so if you plan to wear it over bulky shorts or pants or a fleece jacket, you may want to go up one size; especially if you will be using it for hiking or other active sport.

I really love this jacket. The fit is elegant, sleek and feminine. It fits true-to-size. I ordered a small and it works great for over a tee or light sweater but it's too fitted to wear over bulkier sweaters (order a size up if you want to layer!). I've tried it out in heavy rain several times (I live in rainy Southeast Alaska) and it has kept me nice and dry. In the photo it looked insulated to me (and I probably didn't read the full description) but the material is actually very light and thin so it's not very warm ... not going to be my choice for the winter but it's a great raincoat.

Great Jacket, not what I wanted
Great jacket, light, sort of fitted but not enough. Looking for more of a beltless trench. This one is too close (even in color) to my North Face. Length is good - covers upper thigh. Definitely a better fit than other rain jackets, but I'd still like a more slender waist. Not exactly a lab coat, not exactly svelte. Want practical w/ style. Still looking...
