Marmot Gravity Jacket Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

FIT: I purchased a size S, as I am 5'6" with an athletic build. Jackets and shirts usually fit snugly around the shoulders and chest, while looking like a balloon around my mid-section. The Gravity fit better than most, when worn by itself, and I was thrilled that I found a shell that worked for me. Then the weather got a little colder and I layered it over a medium weight fleece jacket, and the proverbial honeymoon was over. The jacket fits tightly around the chest, pinching at the armpits if I move around much, such as throwing a snowball. I would say the fit is for average builds if layering, athletic builds if not.
PERFORMANCE: The jacket worked as advertised on a windy and rainy day. Not a heavy downpour, but the jacket repelled the steady rain and I did not feel any wind whatsoever. It performed nearly as good as my hardshell. I would rate the performance 5 stars out of 5.
QUALITY: The jacket has held up fairly well, except that a small line of stitching along the zipper line has already come undone a stitch or two. I've only worn the jacket for light outdoor activity, daily for about a month, so this bothers me. The rest of the jacket is holding up well, but it's the only piece of gear that I've owned that has had any kind of stitching issue in the first month of use. I give the jacket 3 stars out of 5 for quality.
VALUE: If the jacket holds up quality-wise, I think it's a great value. Having looked at options from Arc, TNF, Patagonia, Mtn Hardware, etc., I didn't find many softshells in the same price range with the same features (water resistant, windproof).

This jacket goes to eleven!

This is my first Marmot garment, but I'll definitely be buying more based on my experience with this jacket. I had been considering the North Face Apex Bionic Jacket, but after trying them both the Marmot was the clear choice for me.

I ride a motorcycle and I bought the Gravity Jacket to layer it under my leather jacket to add warmth and protection from wind in cold weather. This one fits comfortably without being too bulky or too tight. It looks great on its own, but also functions easily as a middle layer. The cut of the sleeves works well for riding (that's a tall order) so I'm betting it's also good for more vigorous activity without hampering movement.

When riding at 55mph in 40° weather, I can't even feel the cold on my chest (it used to sneak in through the zipper on my leather jacket). The zipper of the Gravity has an extra backing seam of softshell which keeps out the wind. And since the accessory pocket is on the sleeve rather than the chest, the main body of the jacket has no breaches through which wind can get in. The fleece lining is just thick enough to be comfy, even if I'm wearing a short sleeve shirt underneath.

Bonus: the zipper has a small fleece cover at the top to protect the neck from being pinched or rubbed raw when the jacket is zipped up all the way. That kind of attention to detail makes this jacket "go to eleven." (h/t: Spinal Tap)

Can't say enough good things about this product. Highly recommended!

I am on my second Gravity jacket now. People compliment the jacket all the time, and I had my first one stolen. I guess this is a form of flattery? I was first turned on to Marmot by a friend who told me about their impeccable service. They replaced his jacket without question after it started to fray slightly. I live in Minnesota and wore it through two winters now,virtually everyday. It is perfect for outdoor activities in the snow, i.e. shoveling snow or snowboarding. It has great flexibility and it is light, but still does a great job blocking the wind and keeping you dry. As I do with most of my coats, I buy them a little big so I can shove a sweatshirt or sweater underneath when it is colder. A medium fits well, but I buy large. It's also versatile, I use it for physical activities, but it also looks professional for business. I start wearing it in the fall and go straight through to the spring, so it works when it's not too cold too. It's easy to pack away too. Versatility is a big virtue in anything I buy. Marmot's more expensive, but when I can use it in almost any scenario, it's worth the extra cost. Not to mention, they stand behind the product. I must have drank some Marmot Kool-Aid at some point because I can't stop recommending the brand to anyone who cares to listen to me rave about my coat.

Good for high-activity events

I bought this jacket as a replacement for a lost soft shell jacket. I sought wind- and water-resistance, good range of motion, breathability, and ability to wear comfortably under a rain jacket. The Gravity jacket by Marmot fit the bill, though not without room for improvement.

The jacket is tailored for a trim person, with little extra room available. Being only 5'8" on a good day, and of small-to-medium build (my "fighting weight" is about 150 lb), I ended up with a small, as a medium was a bit long through the torso and definitely long through the arms. (I wear a 15/32 dress shirt.) Worn over a well-fitting t-shirt or underlayer, the jacket fits like a glove, and allows for great range of motion. It's comfortable, cuts the wind well, and has proven to be reasonably water-repellent.

My chief concern regarding the jacket is the cut of the sleeves. They are relatively narrow, and if wearing a long-sleeved shirt, the sleeves tend to try to bunch up in the sleeves of the jacket, esp. if the sleeves are rolled up. I can comfortably wear a light fleece over a wool t-shirt under the jacket, but not a heavy fleece; there's too little room in the sleeves.

The jacket has a very nice look when on, and the construction is solid and of quality. Zippers pull smoothly and easily. Pockets are well placed. Lots of compliments received when wearing it.

Great Softshell!

This is a great softshell! I'm average build, 5'9", 165 pounds, shirt size is 16-16.5/34. I don't like baggy clothes, I prefer a fitted, stylish look. I chose a Large in this jacket so I could layer a base layer, light flannel, or sweater underneath and it's perfect. I think if I had gone with a Medium it would've fit perfectly, but only with a base layer or shirt, no flannel or sweater. This is going to be my go to spring and fall jacket, and will also accompany me to Big Island for star gazing on Mauna Kea (and I heard mornings and nights can be a little cool). I put Compact under my Pros because, just like my Precip rain jacket I can fold this jacket down to the size of a magazine (albeit a little thicker) and stow in my laptop bag, which is perfect for a train commuter like me. I got the Cobalt Blue because the color really stands out (there's a bazillion black softshells walking around Denver) and it was on sale, but I'll also be getting a black one for nights out. Lastly, Summit Customer Service was outstanding. When I ordered I thought FedEx Ground would get it to me when I needed. After I placed the order and saw the delivery date I was mistaken so I called Summit. Debbie got me switched to FedEx 2 Day in no time. Thanks again, Debbie!

Good multi-tasker softshell

This is a great jacket to have in your arsenal. This is my first/only softshell, and I've used it for everything from a night on the town to snowboarding. It is very comfortable and very warm. It has kept me warm with a sweater underneath in ~30 degree temps with 20mph winds. I wouldn't call it a perfect snowsports jacket just because it is not quite waterproof (but very resistant) and is not quite long enough to keep snow out of your back on those nasty tumbles. For most everything else it is great. Breathes well enough to wear indoors for a while, but it would be overkill for all but the coldest of running days. It is made in China.

I am 5'9" 170lbs and it fits very nicely. The length covers all but the longest untucked casual wear and the sleeves are generously sized. There is enough room underneath for a bulky hoodie or a couple of technical layers.

The fit/finish and build quality is excellent. The material is very quiet and comfortable, there is a very fine microfleece on the entire interior. I bought the green color, which does look a lot brighter than most online images depict.

Rock Creek shipped fast and the price was the best around.

Wicked smooth jacket

How do you review a jacket? I bought only one -- albeit after a protracted search -- so I can't compare it to any other actual physical jackets of this type. I can compare it to my expectations though. I've been wearing this jacket exclusively for outdoor activities, sports, and everyday wear for a few weeks in New England. The Marmot Gravity is exactly what I hoped it would be: warm in 30-degree weather, robust against spitting rain, and extremely good looking. It's so handsome and slim-fitting (in a good way) that I'm having to consider upgrading to slimmer pants so I can cut a clean figure from top to bottom. Plenty of soft-shell jackets will have the same effect; I'm happy with this one.

The build quality on my particular jacket is great; the stitching looks good; the pockets are warm; the zipper feels substantial instead of cheap. There's an internal zippered pocket. All good things. One does have to be a bit careful about the sizes of items stowed in the pockets because the jacket is so form fitting.

My only complaint is that there's no internal routing for a headphone cable. It's not great to have a long cord leading from my ears to a pocket on my sleeve.

Great standalone jacket for daily wear

The Marmot Gravity jacket is a classic winter jacket, perfect for daily use when you need something warm to throw on top of what you're already wearing. Very convenient if you're wanting to stay warm, but don't want to change out of your casual clothes into a technical base layer or mid layer first! Mine goes to work and back with me every day in the winter, on errands, etc.

This is an M1 softshell, not an M2, so it REALLY keeps the elements out. It's windproof and durable, but the material has a bit of stretch so it doesn't limit your range of motion. If you're looking for something to use during high-output activities in cold weather, I'd look at an M2 or a lighter weight piece with pit zips; this is more for low-output use in cold conditions.

It's an athletic cut, so don't expect to be wearing a thick down mid-layer underneath or anything, but you'll be surprised how warm the Gravity jacket keeps you on its own; if you DO wear it over a base layer, you'll be surprised how warm you'll be without the bulk of a huge parka.

Plus, the black color goes with just about everything, and doesn't look overly technical.

awesome multi-purpose jacket!

This is a great jacket that can be worn in a variety of activities. I purchased the jacket in "black" and it appears to be more of a dark charcoal-gray, but I actually like the color. The front pockets are big and zippered, but the pocket on the left arm is a bit awkward to access and use. My only complaint is that the bicep area of the sleeves is tight and anyone with 20+ inch biceps will experience difficulty with this (the only practical issue is that when I wear short sleeves, my sleeves get stuck when putting the jacket on and I have to tuck them back in). The jacket is very warm and can be worn in a variety of conditions, but if you are active when wearing it and sweat, the fleece lining will stick to your arms (if you wear short sleeves). The fit is great and looks very form fitting. The sleeve cuffs are adjustable, which is nice for when you want it tight or loose. The jacket is also very water repellent - I woundn't wear it in a rain storm, but in a light rain this jacket will keep you warm and dry!
BigKev at REI on 10/10/2011

This thing is awesome. Great fit, build quality is fantastic. The Navy blue is a real nice. I'm 6.1 athletic build at 185 pounds, Large fits perfect, with room for base, polar 200 weight.
Very water resistant. 30 minute ride home in light to medium rain and 30 mile hour winds, it just started to spot in a couple places.
Very breathable, stretchy, completely wind resistant. Arm pocket is large enough to fit my Samsung Galaxy S II with CaseMate, but not with headphones. Using the pocket does not impede movement.
Only gripe, is it isn't as warm as I had hoped. Maybe I expected to much from my first soft shell. From what I read on the web, they replace a mid layer, but that is not the case. It is just a flexible, water resistant, windproof, light insulating outer layer. Pack a light shell if backpacking in case of downpours... Highly recommend it. I will be a Marmot Man now.
PS: I had a Columbia Key Three II before this, and returned it. The craftsmanship was not great for the price, but the Omni-Heat does work, if you were curious.

Negative Reviews:

this is not a warm jacket i tried it out in 38 degree and was disappointed on how cold the jacket was if you want a warm whether jacket and good wind breaker this will do the job If i am going to spend 150 on a jacket i would get a winter jacket for that price that is warm

Very comfortable and warm, with issues

I love the jacket, warm, comfortable, and very good looking. However, the stitching of the coat is coming apart at 2 separate places. Wasn't really thrilled by that, as it assumes shoddy workmanship. Only flaw in an otherwise great coat.

Neutral Reviews:


Have owned several Marmot jackets and bought this soft shell based on that experience. The fit of this one was totally different. Very small/tight thru the chest and torso.

Returned to REI. Will continue looking for the right soft shell.
