Solid, as always

This is my second Aegis -- the first one was stolen out of the back of my car -- and I still haven't found a better storm shell. Hiking in the spring in Indiana and Tennessee can prove to be quite wet at times, and the Aegis has held up to everything I could throw at it. It held back a absolute downpour for a steady 2 hours, much to the dismay of my hiking pants that couldn't keep up. Best of all, unlike many of it's Gore-tex cousins that I have had, it actually breathes and you don't get that clamminess that accompanies many jackets -- an absolute must for summer hiking excursions. And all for under $150 bucks. A few things to note, the black model shows on the pictures that the zippers to the pockets are gray in color and they are actually black. The only contrast on the jacket is the Marmot logo, which is gray. The fit is excellent for me. I bought a medium and I am 6', 175lbs, with an athletic build. It allows layering with a nice mid-weight fleece underneath but is still cut pretty thin. The cuffs are cut in an interesting manner which seems weird at first, but you soon realize that they provide better coverage in rain within getting in the way of your hands. Finally, you should note that due to the athletic cut, it is pretty short in the front. Like I said before, I'm 6' and it's just fine for me, but I prefer my jackets to fall just below the belt. The back is a little longer in length, which is nice to keep the rain at bay. Overall, this is one of the best investments in outdoor gear I have ever made. You won't be disappointed.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Great value

I was looking for waterproof jacket that use for long season. When it could do, it was light, and what can be folded and stored in a backpack was good. This matched my purpose. Temperature adjustment is also easy with the fastener under the side. Probably it applies to a future season and this jacket will be good not only for mountain climbing but street clothes.
Great rain jacket

I purchased this jacket for hiking and rock climbing. The light shell would appear to rip easy on tree limbs and brush, but it holds up well on most hikes. I would recommend this jacket to anyone who wants a great rain repellent outer shell. The jacket fits true to size if anyone had a question about sizing

Light weight, breathable and easy to live with. This jacket does have the MemBrain Strata fabric. It feels noticeably lighter than the Oracle and less bulky.I like it.

Bought this for my 15 year old son. He loves the blue color. Nice overall fit where medium fits true to size with room to layer - he is 69 inches, 125 pounds and thin. Quality jacket with lots of nice features. Zippers are easy to operate. Water beads up on jacket giving confidence that it'll hold up well in steady rain. Light and packable.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Different from other Gore-tex shell, it has a lighter weight and same excellent performance, The windproof, waterproof,Breath-ability are not worse than other GTX jacket, I believe that Membrane of Marmot is absolutely worth with its price, I must recommend it to my friends.

Was look for a waterproof shell that I could use year round. This jacket is long enough in back to cover your seat and decent coverage in front also. Fits well with thick sweatshirts underneath and lightweight down sweaters. The fit is athletic enough to wear with a t-shirt alone. Haven't had a chance to test the waterproofness of the membrain strata since its winter in Chicago. Overall I'm very please with the jacket. BTW I bought the jacket in fatigue which is a really dark green. Cons is any would be ( this may be personal taste) I wish the sleeves had elastic and velcro on the cuffs. Great jacket...great price. Thx altrec!Pros: fit, color, Cons: no elastic on cuffs
Light weight Jacket

I ended up returning only because I wanted something a little heavier. If you want a light weight, wind resistant and water proof jacket, this is for you.
Excellent quality and fit

Fit well, considering I am a 'tall' usually and most jackets end up being halter tops on me-- the angel wing design keeps ride up at bay. The quality of the fabric seems very durable and weather-resistant, while staying lightweight.

I have a Marmot Precip in medium, this one seems to fit just a bit looser. There'd be room for layering a fleece underneath pretty easily. The zippers are a bit tight, are smooth once started, but take a bit to start. Otherwise, a great jacket, the red is darker, pretty true to the picture online, it is most definitely more breathable than the Precip (which I also love, by the way), and I haven't taken it in the rain, but water from the faucet just rolls right off of it, and the insides stay dry. The cut does seem just a bit looser than my precip, but might be because it's new and hasn't been really broken in yet. Overall, a great buy.Pros: lightweight, packable, good movement, room for layering, Cons: slightly tight zipper, slightly larger cut than my precip.
