The Marmot Men's Minimalist Jacket is a Gore-Tex Paclite jacket for the backpacker that needs lightweight, waterproof protection. The Minimalist is light and simple, yet strong enough to block wind and rain (even snow!) from ruining your trek from camp to camp. The zippered hand pockets and chest pocket secure small items close by when trudging through a down pour, with storm flaps and a water resistant zipper for extra protection on the inside. Cinch the hood and hem down with elastic draw cords and wrap your wrists with Velcro straps to prevent the wind from blowing the jacket and hood all willy-nilly. As you heat up from your hiking exertions, open the pit zips to let in a bit of fresh air right at the core.

GORE-TEX Paclite

GORE-TEX Paclite
GORE-TEX Paclite is the gold standard for lightweight, breathable elemental protection. Paclite jackets are extremely packable and great to have on hand for windy or rainy conditions. They'll keep your torso dry and comfortable.

GORE-TEX fabric technology

Garments made with GORE-TEX® fabric are durably waterproof, windproof and highly breathable, providing reliable weather protection and maximum comfort for a wide range of activities. These garments keep your body dry by allowing perspiration vapor to escape so you remain cool during activity and warm during cool-down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this everyday goretex jacket I was looking for a goretex jacket for a while before settling on this one, a lot of them have great features if you're doing some serious outdoor stuff but some of us don't need all of that. It lives up to its name sake, as it has the essentials like velcro cuffs, adjustable hood, waterproof breast pocket, light weight, and of course it's water proof. The front zip and pit zips are not sealed for waterproofing themselves but covered by flaps, which work just fine for me. This jacket is also on the quieter side compared to other goretex jackets, as many sound like a bag of chips being ruffled, but still audible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great GORE-TEX Jacket - Great Price Too This is the first GORE-TEX rain gear I have owned, and it is way better than anything else. The fabric breathes well, and since it is Marmot, it is built for adventure! Pricing from Moosejaw sealed the deal. I'm a Happy Camper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit Fits well. Haven’t put it to the test yet in steady rain but I stayed dry in light rain. Breathes well. Overall happy with the jacket so far. Can’t rate durability as have only had it a couple weeks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good quality but heavy Looking to replace my lightweight Essence jacket, this Minimalist is a good bit heavier despite its name. I particularly don’t like the hidden front hand pockets that are unnecessarily huge and add a lot of material, and also get blocked by your hip belt. The hand pocket and armpit zippers aren’t waterproof either, which makes me nervous. Durable jacket, good value but I wouldn’t call it the Minimalist.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from the minimalist jacket is fine but the Presips are I am reviewing all the Presip jackets I've bought. Give them 5 stars. If I am in a ! big hurry to zip the velcro next to the zipper is so handy to use.. the weightlessness is wonderful. I have bought them large enough to go over fleece or wool sweaters if needed.In fact I have bought 7 so far for all my family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything you need for everything CO throws! I am 6’5” with an athletic build. Finding rain gear is one of the hardest things to find but this jacket is the answer to all my needs. Long enough sleeves, goretex, taped seams, and a large enough hood for any situation. Thank you for making such a perfect piece!

It seems Marmot had a bad run of these jackets between 1 and 2 years ago with the waterproofing not being up to snuff. Has that been fixed, and do you only stock the "fixed" jackets?

Asked by: Mikey
Hiya Mikey, thanks for your question! The faulty jackets you are referring to were corrected about 3 years ago. We carry the newest version, which came out in Spring 2016. If you have a faulty jacket, you can contact Marmot for a replacement. (It is covered under their warranty program.) Hope this helps!

Would this jacket be an ok shell layer for Kilimanjaro or would something more substantial be warranted? Thanks.

Asked by: wildcatpat64
Thanks for the question! The Minimalist Jacket is a perfect layering piece for Kilimanjaro. Since you will be going thru four different climate zones, you could potentially use it in all four. You will have rain, wind, snow, and ice protection and will still be small enough to be packed into its own pocket. Bonus! - it has pit-zips in case you need to use it in the tropical zone. I think you picked a great jacket. If you want more options, then I would take a look at The North Face Men's Resolve 2 Jacket. I included a link below. I hope this helps a little. Have a great trip!

Can Goretex light jackets like this one be used during the winter months in harsh, cold wintery and snowy conditions (with insulation underneath, obviously)? Or should one buy a thicker Goretex jacket? Thanks!

Asked by: MrMojo
Howdy Mr. Mojo! Thanks for asking. Yes, you can definitely use this bad boy throughout winter as long as you have insulation underneath! This item has a regular fit, but if you plan on wearing very thick layers underneath, like a thick sweater and a very puffy down jacket, you might want to go with one size up.
