Marmot NanoPro is a super comfortable waterproof/breathable membrane. It is dynamically air permeable, which helps shed excess moisture vapor, keeping you dry and happy. If you're anything like me, then you enjoy being happy. So do yourself a favor and utilize NanoPro technology when you're active in the backcountry.

Very good rain jacketIt hasn't been raining so I haven't been able to test this jacket's weatherproofness, yet. But it has been warm, comfortable , lightweight . After an overnight backpacking trip in the Norrh Cascades it was smokey from the campfire, so I washed it in a machine as per the directions. No problem. Like all waterproof clothes it's a little stiff and crunchy, but OK.

Great for Dual purposing!This jacket is great!
It provided the technical aspect that I needed for my weekend hikes, but it is also a great every day work commuting jacket.
The chest pockets were perfect for the hike when i couldnt get to the body pockets. And the body pockets are great for the every day use!

A great step up from the PrecipThree Waterproof Breathable (WB) Rain Shells Compared Under My Own Real-World Conditions!
I performed this test for three reasons:
1. I am looking for a good, WB rain shell that will not leak in a year, and:
2. I could not find any realistic tests on the internet or YouTube that compared breathability between different WB technologies in a realistic situation;
3. I could not find any tests on the Marmot Artemis. All the testing I could find on the Artemis were demos, not tests.
I would like to get a few things out of the way: I purchased all these shells myself; no testing programs, no promotional considerations. I have no connection at all to Marmot, except as an admitted Marmot gear lover for about 30 years. That is my own bias. Also, please do not mistake me for an expert in WB technology, garment design, etc. I have been a materials scientist for 25 years, in laboratories, and I love to test things. For anything that you see that is incorrect or for any comments, please let me know! Thanks!
Choosing the Contenders:
The basic decisions were:
1. Find a jacket that has the best current breathability for the price, and
I chose Marmot jackets for these reasons: Marmot employs the three major types of WB tech: polyurethane coating, polyurethane laminate, and Gore-Tex laminate. I liked, in comparison to other brands, the balance of breathability ratings, waterproofness ratings, lightness, and representation of WB technology. Marmot has the best WB polyurethane coatings and laminate I could find, and a large factor was that they have introduced their new line, the Nano-Pro coating and the Nano-Pro laminate (Membrain). I wanted to test these in my own real-world conditions against the best Gore-Tex laminate for me, Gore Active. I therefore chose:
1. To represent a WB polyurethane coating, the Marmot Spectra. This is a step up from the Precip line. I like the styling and colors, and there were some upgrades I liked, from the Precip line: the addition of chest pockets, and the addition of the moldable hood brim (turns out the web site is wrong: the Spectra does not have a moldable brim.)
2. To represent a WB polyurethane-based laminate, the Marmot Artemis. I felt it was a brilliantly conceived jacket, with some real advantages that included the stretch fabric they use. Also, the moldable brim, and the "athletic fit". I wanted to try a jacket that fit a little more closely, and that had light weight for its capabilities.
3. To represent Gore Active, the Marmot Nano AS. A very light weight design, without frills but all the necessities but one: pit zips. I have always had them, always used them, and I was very skeptical about not having them. The reputation of the Nano AS and Gore Active, though, made me want to make the comparison. It can be seen that the description for the Nano AS is inaccurate in that the fabric is not polyester, it is nylon, and that the cloth weave is not "plain weave", it is ripstop.
5. I used my Marmot DriClime Wind Shirt as my outer layer, as it transports moisture out to its surface like a demon, and because the moisture is very easy to see. The videos tell the story.
I wanted to test the real-world breathability of the shells, under conditions that were as controlled as I could make them. I live in Portland, and it is winter, so the opportunities for testing in rain abound. The conditions I controlled for were:
• Temperature: ranging from 42 degrees to 49 degrees
• Humidity: at least 95%, up to and including light to medium steady rain.
I felt these were most important, as they have a large impact on the breathability of the shells. Here is my standard route, as mapped by Endomondo. The walk length, speed and total time of the walk were kept as much the same as I possibly could. I succeeded on that count; there was no variation in walking speed, length and total time of more than 5%. I was even able to keep my heart rate very similar through the separate walks.
The Nano AS with Gore Active is the hands-down winner. I would not have expected this level of breathability and moisture transport without pit zips, but I proved it to myself. The polyurethane-based WB coatings and laminates are really excellent these days, but for me, under my conditions, the Nano AS proved to be the best WB shell jacket I can find and afford.
The Artemis took second place. The fabric used is nothing short of wonderful. Soft, stretchy and durable. I really wanted the Artemis to win. The styling and comfort, the hood and the fit, are all superb. But results brought this to second place. There was also an annoying tendency for the soft, non-stiffened main zipper backing to snag in the zipper. This happened literally every time I zipped or unzipped the jacket. I could see this as a major problem in winter, with gloves, or in a downpour when you want to stay dry, not fight with a snagged zipper.
Third place goes to the Spectra. Less breathable, lack of a moldable brim, too-large hood, and the larger fit, all conspired to drop this one from consideration.
