Marmot Minimalist Women’s Jacket Review

The Marmot Minimalist will be minimalist in all the manners in which we don’t need it to be, and none of the manners in which we do. It’s agreeable and fits well. It has extraordinary pockets that are huge and keep things from dropping out without any problem. Be that as it may, the Minimalist is likewise substantial, not packable (into its own pocket), and above all, not waterproof. It effectively absorbs water and rapidly moves that through to your skin. It’s sufficient to get you all through the supermarket however not implied for delayed introduction to rain.

You expect a rain jacket to keep you dry in the rain. The Minimalist labels some genuine indicators onto that desire with the real execution of this jacket. Following a few minutes in light rain, the greenish blue texture was at that point obviously beginning to absorb some water. After about 60 minutes, that light rain was inside the jacket, making the pieces of our bodies with the most introduction to vertical rain (to be specific lower arms and highest points of shoulders), wet. This is a frustrating presentation from an in any case genuinely great inclusion jacket.

Beside the absence of genuinely waterproof texture, the Minimalist offers some conventional inclusion. Internal and external tempest folds spread the primary zipper, which isn’t waterproof. Tempest folds likewise spread the pocket zippers – additionally not waterproof. The hood has a decent inclusion hood with a wide edge and a solitary change point on the back that works admirably protecting your face from vertical precipitation.

In spite of the fact that Marmot promotes this jacket as “incredibly breathable”, contrasted with the others we tried, we see it as about normal. It’s somewhat thick to be extremely breathable yet features 11″ top-down pit vents for when you truly need them. It makes a tolerable showing hindering the breeze and keeping you warm on a chilly day, however. We’d suggest it for lower-power exercises, such as strolling the pooch around the area.


The Marmot Minimalist isn’t insignificant among its rivals. It’s overwhelming, doesn’t pack into its pocket, and has a lot of pockets and highlights that resist its name. The main manner by which we feel that it’s really negligible is in the single direction we don’t need it to be – water opposition.
