This is a great jacket. I've been impressed with the quality of workmanship and the attention to detail that went into designing and producing this jacket. I typically think of Gore-Tex as being a bit thicker, crisper and heavier fabric, but this Paclite Gore-Tex is lightweight and packs down very small. The fit is streamlined enough to be flattering, yet leaves enough room for layers. It fits true-to-size, but is about as small as I would want it to be for layering. If you're planning on a lot of bulky layers, I would opt for the next size up. I have yet to test it on the trail, but I do live in Okinawa, Japan and we have a typhoon currently bearing down on us with excessive wind and rain. I wore this jacket out running errands yesterday and had no problems. I was pleasantly surprised by the breathability of the fabric since I could sometimes feel the wind through the fabric. I'm looking forward to testing this out on the trail, but thus far I'm very pleased with my purchase.Pros: Great design, Build quality
I Love This Jacket!
January 20, 2011
I ordered this jacket because marmot is one of my fav brands and with this jacket it just proves me right all the time. It's very comfy and you could put an inner shell or not but it looks good either way. I wear it for rainy or just cool weather. It's awesome!Pros: Performance, Cons: Cost

I have been on a quest for a perfect rain jacket. Apparently, I have a somewhat strangely shaped or large-sized head, because hoods have been a problem. The Minimalist hood provides excellent coverage, however! The fit is excellent--trim line that keeps drafts out, and looks good, too. I am 5'6", 130#, and the Medium fits perfectly with a layer or two underneath, and without. Excellent range of motion, as well--with my arms straight over my head, the hem still covers my waist and hips. The 2 pockets are large, and extend nearly the entire front of the jacket, giving the front a double layer of GoreTex.The only 'problem' (and I think it has to do with my head!) is that the neck of the hood is somewhat tight, and my chin must either stick out of the hood completely or be tucked in tight. However, the Minimalist is great overall, and if this one is like my brother's, it will last!Pros: Build quality, Performance

I bought this jacket for my wife, and she loves it! I have the same jacket in the men's version and use it for everything from Backpacking to Boarding, and it is the prefect combination of comfort and protection, no matter if your in the Olympics or the Sierras. Would like at least a single pocket on the inside, but it is a "minimalist", and highly recommend!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
very nice jacket
May 12, 2010
Very slim fitting jacket. I am 5'4" 123# and sz small was a bit tight with a long sleeve tee and thin sweater. If I had tried a fleece, no way I could've zipped it. Take that into consideration when ordering. It is tapered in at the waist very nicely for a woman. Too bad Altrec was sold out in Med.

Quality outer shell with a flattering shape!!!
April 15, 2010
The Minimalist's performance is outstanding, & it's actually trim in the waist-with enough room for a mid-layer fleece!This shell with the Arcteryx Atom LT & a base layer kept me warm & dry through some REALLY cold(below 10 degree) & wet weather-without having to give up on style!Most shells look like a smaller men's jacket. Oh, and another bonus is the length!It comes to mid-hip!You can't get better than that(the only jacket that comes close-for price,performance& fit is Arcteryx Beta SL, but you loose the length and it still doesn't shape your body as well) Trust me,I did ALOT of searching B4 buying this!!! I'm 5'7" 130lbs & a size small fits me perfectly!I hope this helps- good luck!

Lightweight, Gortex, windproof, waterproof...I love this jacket. Plan to take it on many trips in 2011.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever

I purchased this jacket in anticipation for spring camping trips. It fits perfectly, with enough room for a light sweatshirt underneath. It scoops down in the back which gives a little more coverage and won't ride up every time you bend over. Also has a great bill to the hood to keep water away from your face on a rainy day. This coat reminds me of an exact replica of my boyfriends very expensive rain shell.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value, Performance

my girlfriend got this jacket a few years ago. it's always worked fine but she had never put it through the real test until recently. nine straight days of camping on oahu's windward side - nine straight days of rain and constant 35mph+ wind. her coat didn't even get a chance to completely dry out the entire time. inside the jacket, she kept warm and dry the whole trip. not a single complaint. she even used the pitzips that she makes fun of all the time. the bill on the hood extends out a good distance and doesn't get disfigured when shoved into the bottom of your bag. if you want 110% waterproof gear, goretex is the way to go. don't be fooled into believing otherwise.
An everyday go to jacket
December 05, 2012
I bought this jack about a year ago and it has held up wonderfully! The fit is what you would expect from Marmot, GREAT. The length was a bit longer which I prefer to keep the rain and wind out while hiking. It breaths quite well and the pit zips are handy for when its hot and rainy... Overall it has been a great jacket for around town on rainy days, hiking in the Rockies, and snowboarding on warmer days. Well worth the money spent!Pros: Great design, Lasts forever, Performance, Great value
Comfortability and slim fitting
August 11, 2010
Great lightweight comfortable jacket. It has a great girly fit, but slightly slim fitting for this curvy girl. If you want to layer, order a size up. The red color is perfect and not pink. Note this jacket has buttons or velcro patches only at the top and bottom, no regular spacing of velcro down the front placket.

Usually after a month or so of wearing my new ski jacket, I'm wishing I'd But I will definitely be keeping this Minimalist for more than one season. Its incredibly light, but keeps me dry and protected against the wind. Its not insulated by any means, but with the proper under layers, I can wear this jacket in any number of outdoor activities. As an added plus, the bright green color helps people see me in the snow : )
Absolutey Great Ski Jacket
March 28, 2010
I wore this jacket skiing with only long johns and a sweatshirt underneath. It was windy and hailing and I was still toasty warm. I love this coat!
My Girlfriend really liked it.

Awesome jacket! Keeps the rain and snow out and looks good doing it! Marmot makes outstanding products such as the Minimalist jacket! I wish I had one for me!
Stands up to Oregon rain
April 12, 2012
This is a great jacket. I live in Oregon and know rain. I have several expensive rain jackets, but this my new favorite. Why? It is comfortable, is long so you stay dryer, engineered so it doesn't pull up when you life your arms. It feels breathable, but additionally has put zips. Is super pack able and lightweight. And on top of all that, is feminine and flattering. Just the best! I love it.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
