The Mica is 100% seam taped, waterproof, and highly breathable, thanks to MemBrain® Strata™ fabric. For lightweight enthusiasts and those who don't have much packing space to spare, the Mica is tough to beat. Stows neatly into its own pocket when not in use.
In April 1971, University of California Santa Cruz students Eric Reynolds and Dave Huntley were in Alaska on the Juneau Icefields on a school project in Glaciology. It was here on the glacier, amongst these students, that the idea of a Marmot club began. To become a Marmot, you had to climb a glaciated peak with another Marmot. One of the rules of the club was that everyone was president. Most of the other rules dealt with the collegiate fascination with bodily functions.
Eric and Dave went on to found Marmot Mountain Works in 1974, and through the years the company made lots of innovations in down jackets, sleeping bags, Gore-Tex apparel, and beyond. Their modest enterprise is now one of the largest and most respected outdoor gear companies in the world, distributed in over 60 countries, and it is still all about the highest-quality, innovative performance products.
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.
Designed for ultra-light travel in rough weather conditions, the Mica Jacket from Marmot provides fully seam taped, waterproof and breathable protection - and at just around 7 ounces, maximizes your weight-to-protection ratio.

This is a great lightweight, no frills, breathable, totally waterproof rain jacket. Perfect for summer rainstorms and lightweight hiking/backpacking.
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.
