The Marmot DriClime has what amounts to almost a cult following... and for good reason - it is incredibly useful under many different situations. For some its a running jacket, for others its for climbing. Personally I use it for everything from a warm, versatile, windproof and water resistant layer while backpacking... to a jacket to throw over a t-shirt on a chilly morning walk.
The DriClime packs down very small, about the size of a softball, and is very light. Between the pit vents and the full zipper it breathes well enough that you can keep it on, even when warm, and use it as a sunshade. It cuts wind like few other layers, arguably as well or better than GoreTex PacLite. The fabric has a great feel to it, similar to silk or rayon. The interior is a very soft brushed fabric that feels fantastic. I've worn a pack over my DriClime many times, and I have yet to see wear on the jacket from the pack itself. The quality is top notch, what you would expect from Marmot.
If you're looking for a multi-faceted, useful, comfortable jacket that will last you decades... here it is. Its so incredibly versatile that you'll likely wind up finding yourself putting it to uses that you hadn't originally planned. And the few times you don't need it you can throw it in your pack and hardly notice the extra 8 ounces. It has a cult following for a reason.
I use this jacket for backpacking and running in cooler and windy climates (20- 40 F) The jacket is extremely versatile and dries extremely fast. The jacket is extremely comfortable and breathes really well. i am 5' 8'' and 165 lbs, the medium fits perfect. i usually wear a synthetic t-shirt to a silk weight top on underneath depending on the temperature. If i get cool in the lower temperatures, its not too bad, i just move a little faster. the only down side that I have experienced, it is not very water resistant.
I love this thing. I bought it on a whim at a local store, and I have found so many uses for it, it's ridiculous. I used it as its own outer layer in mid fall and spring temps, an amazingly warm inner layer for skiing (the two layers trap a surprising amount of air), outside layer for rock-climbing...just about anything I dish out to it. Surprisingly warm as an inner layer, and very windproof as an outer layer.
I am 5'9" and weigh 165 lbs and a medium is a great fit...highly recommended
I love this jacket, it really does an awesome job of keeping wind off me. A few comments though:
* You can't expect to layer too much underneath this jacket. Maybe if you order a size up you can.
* This jacket feels like it will rip or otherwise fall apart easily. So far it hasn't, but it feels like a risk.
* The jacket material gets caught up in the zipper really easily. Be careful!
* Water resistance is nice!
* It has vents in the armpit area. Which is actually really nice.
