is this jacket totally water repellent & waterproof ?
LORI J It was totally water repellent & waterproof for about a year. Now moisture seeps through. It has since been replaced with a Marmot Minimalist, and so far, so good.
JONATHAN C Yes. I own this jacket, and it is completely water proof, even at seems and zipper in heavy rain. Not a warm jacket though.
KEFYN C Yes completely and an a decent windbreak too. Quite warm for it's fabric. Worn it in many heavy downpours on the AT and never a drop of water got through. Excellent hood and collar
RON T Yes, this jacket is waterproof. It has the Marmot membrain breathable fabric which out performs a DWR finish that the lesser priced jackets have. I've worn this in heavy downpours and remained completely dry. With all of the pockets, pit zips, stow sway hood and more, this is a really great buy especially if you find it on sale.
