The Marmot Men's Mica Jacket is a waterproof jacket for lightweight hiking and traveling. The Mica is 100% seam taped and blocks driving rains while still remaining breathable due to MemBrain Strata fabric. The simple jacket has two hand pockets for snacks or hanging onto your keys and a hood that cinches down so it won't be blown off by a howling wind. Once the weather turns around and the sun shows its face, pack the jacket into it's own pocket and store it away for another rainy day.
So far, I couldn't be happier with the Marmot Mica rain shell. The material is beyond light, yet just screams "quality." I have been in several downpours in this shell, however, I have never gotten wet. The taped seams are expertly executed, the fit is great, and it's just exactly what I was looking for in a higher-end rain shell that doesn't cost a fortune. In addition, this thing is seriously breathable, which was a huge plus for me. The only thing I would add to make this jacket perfect would be pit zips, but again, the breathability almost compensates for the lack of pit zips. I would definitely purchase this jacket again.
Good hand pockets, good fit,(I got small, 5'10" and 140lb) nice velcro wrist closures. it also has a bottom draw chord, which is helpful. My only complaint is that the self stuff sack was bigger than necessary, but really a great lightweight jacket.
