The Marmot Essence Jacket is the lightest fully taped waterproof/breathable jacket available. Stripped of everything but the essentials.
The Essence Jacket uses superlight 12-denier 2.5 layer MemBrain® Strata™ fabric for 20,000mm waterproof rating, and 20,0000mm breathability rating. MemBrain® Strata fabric is lightweight, durable and comfortable.
The hood is adjustable for volume and opening size. Elastic draw cord hem adjusts for serious weather. Stretch cuffs keep the cold out and are non-absorbant. Integrated cooling vents under the arms allow ventilation when it heats up.
One chest pocket provides quick access to small items. Front zipper and chest pocket zippers are water resistant. Seams are micro-stitched and 100% seam taped for maximum waterproof protection.
Angel-Wing Movement™ allows full range of motion in the arms so the Essence doesn't ride up. Reflective logos increase low light visibility.
