Marmot's Essence jacket uses a durable stretch fabric to offer full waterproof protection and excellent breathable performance in a lightweight package.
A featherweight phenom, the minimalist construction of the Women’s Essence makes use of state-of-the-art NanoPro MemBrain stretch fabric that is waterproof and breathable.
The attached hood, integrated cooling vents and a free-moving design enhance the sleek, streamlined shape. Pocket-less, except for a single chest pocket, this hooded diva weighs in at a slight 5.8 ounces, making her stealthy and ready to roll.
Marmot's 2016 Essence Jacket is a good balance of lightweight design and durable construction. The membrane technology provides a really good level of rain protection & breathability for a very reasonable price.
Marmot have kept the weight down by only having the most essential features, such as a single pocket on the chest & elasticated wrists. You can get the hood close to your head with two adjustable drawcords at the chin and with the velcro adjustment on the rear you can adjust the volume of the hood even further, allowing you to hunker down when the weather gets rough.
