The winner of several prestigious design awards, the Mica Jacket is the lightest waterproof shell jacket in our inventory that still has a full zip and two pockets you can stick your hands in. It is also our fundraiser jacket for the Fellowship of the Wheel for spring 2013. For every sale of these Mica jackets, Outdoor Gear Exchange will be donating $25 to FOTW to support their organization. That's right - you get the jacket for $30 off MSRP and OGE makes a $25 donation on top of that.
The men's Marmot Mica Jacket is the winner of several prestigious design awards. It couldn’t be any lighter and still be called a jacket. Supremely detailed and pro-minded, The Mica is made for traveling light in tough conditions. The Mica is 100% seam taped, waterproof, and highly breathable, thanks to MemBrain® Strata™ fabric. It also features an attached adjustable hood and Velcro® cuffs, a water resistant front zipper, and it packs neatly into its own pocket.
For that Rim to Rim hike you've got planned during the rainy season, be sure to pack along Marmot's Mica Jacket. Don't worry, you won't notice the weight it adds, coming in at 7 ounces for a fully waterproof, breathable shell. It even packs into its own pocket for convenience! The Angel Wing movement allows you to have a greater range of motion without the jacket riding up, so take it along for all of your adventures.

This is a great lightweight, no frills, breathable, totally waterproof rain jacket. Perfect for summer rainstorms and lightweight hiking/backpacking.
Just to confirm- this will pack down neatly into it's own pocket. No stuff sack.
This is a really light jacket that compresses well. It's nice to know I can stash it easily and without adding any noticeable weight, even on a day hike. It will even fit in your pants pocket if you want. I've had problems with the water proof factor though. I've had it for 1 year now, and it is not waterproof at all anymore. 5 minutes in light rain and it is already soaked through to the inside. Could it be possible mine is defective? I thought it had a 20,000 rating, and I find it hard to believe that this model would be that weak when exposed to the element it's designed to protect against.
