Marmot's Stretch Light Jacket is super stretchy offering wind and shower protection in a garment thats great to wear.
Marmot says: Commit to the movement, the Stretch Light Jacket won’t restrict. Made with our hyper breathable Marmot M3 soft shell to provide reliable wind resistance and water-shedding protection, this ultra lightweight full-zip jacket features four-way stretch for maximizing your mobility and comfort. Extras: elastic bond cuffs, thumb holes and reflectivity.
A leading pioneer of Softshells, Marmot created the M Series to offer a wide array of softshell fabric technologies and construction. The M Series fabrics are designed for moving light and fast. They combine stretchable, water repellent, abrasion resistant and highly breathable shell materials with insulating buffer materials on the inside.
M3 Softshells are the most breathable softshells in the collection, best for high aerobic activities in drier, milder conditions.
Marmot's Stretch Light Jacket is a very lightweight softshell that's ideal for 3 season outings when the weather's changeable. You can put it on for protection against wind and to provide warmth and if there's a slight shower it will shrug it off without a problem.
This type of lightweight garment does a similar job to a wind jacket and although its quite a bit heavier it provides more warmth, sheds the weather more effectively and is much more comfortable to wear.
The material is highly stretchy which allows the cuffs to be finished with a simple hem that stretches to fit round your wrist. The body hem has a shockcord adjustment to help it along. A single small chest pocket but no hand pockets keeps things simple and light.
