The lightest, most packable outerwear available, GORE-TEX® PacLite® garments are durably waterproof, windproof and breathable and are built for activities when weight and space are critical, but protection is still important.
The face fabric is constructed of high-performance polyester or nylon and on the inside GORE-TEX® Paclite® Shells use a specific GORE-TEX® membrane with a protective layer made of an oil-hating substance and carbon. So no separate lining is required. This makes GORE-TEX® Paclite® shells lighter and smaller to pack away.
Special Gore-Seam® tape technology ensures all seams are 100% waterproof.
GORE-TEX® PacLite® Shells are great for trekking, hiking, backpacking, mountaineering, cycling, hunting, fishing, golfing and water sports.
It might be called Minimalist but this jacket’s breathability is maximal thanks to a Gore-Tex Paclite membrane that handles moisture well. Additionally, side zips allow air to circulate. The large hood, which protects reasonably well, is big enough to cover a helmet if you scramble or climb, but even with the volume-adjusting rear tab it can be overwhelming for walking. A curious hood drawcord arrangement allows single-handed adjustment only when the jacket’s front zip is part down; you’ll need both hands when it’s fully fastened.
The Marmot Minimalist does away with unnecessary frills and features.
Our female testers loved the Marmot Minimalist jacket. Cut for a trim, athletic fit, the Minimalist does away with unnecessary frills and features. The simple, clean design fits comfortably over a thin midlayer without binding or bunching, allowing freedom of movement while hiking, scrambling and climbing. One tester noted that the hem is just long enough to fit under a backpack belt to ensure it doesn’t ride up and deposit rainwater in your pants. Though Paclite breathes better than other Gore products, the Minimalist provides additional ventilation through armpit zippers that extend forward on the body of the jacket a bit to improve air flow. The jacket weighs less than a pound and sells for $200. - Dan A. Nelson
