Wateproofing issuesThe jacket would be a great value, it has all the important details needed for mountaneering: pit zip, hood suitable for helmet, sleeve long till mid hand (important when you climb),...
The problem is that washing it the first and only time, following Marmot and Goretex instructions, il loses all the DWR protection. All of it. Water just sticks to the jacket until it dries.
Don't make my mistake: hand wash it with extremely cold water and a few deterger or BUY SOMETHING ELSE.
I also read in more recent reviews that the newer version misses the hood strings: that's bad! When there is strong wind and it rains, you will tend to lose the hood.

Runs large for my athletic figured ladies!Love this jacket but definitely had to size down, ordered XS and typically wear between XS and S in tops and jackets. I do have narrow hips (wear a 0-2 pending brand) but even the chest (30 DDD) is larger on me. It's good for layering for summits for sure though, but hard to tighten down in heavy rain. I do get some discoloration that seems to be the inner layer bleeding out in areas of friction--would NOT recommend the lighter colors for this reason. this discoloration has persisted with washing/drying per recommendations from Marmot. Great jacket overall, I just recommend buying a darker color because of the coloring.

Not Waterproof - Don't waste your moneyI thought I was investing in this jacket when I bought it just over a year ago. It was pretty waterproof as first, but it started soaking through in moderate rain within a couple of months. I tried reproofing with Granger products to no avail. It's no good for keeping dry on a rainy dog walk, let alone any kind of a hike. I sent an email to customer service but never heard anything back. Don't waste your money.

Great All Around Jacket for HikingI am an outdoor guide, and I bought this jacket as an outer shell for wind protection and obviously to stay dry. I used it to climb Kilimanjaro in Africa - and it worked great in all sorts of different conditions. Great breathability in my opinion - mostly used it as a wind block. Pit zips were definitely key. I also really like the fit of the hood - it was easy to pull on and off over a winter hat. The fit was great - it fit over all of my layers but wasn't too tight or too bulky. I am 5'4" and 142 lbs, and a medium worked great. It also packs down really well and is relatively light. I haven't used it too much in heavy rain yet but I would be surprised if it doesn't do its job.

Awesome PerformanceI bought this jacket in 2013, and have used it extensively. I spent a month in the mountains of the Dominican Republic during the rainy season and never got wet. Took it with me to La Paz, Bolivia - it was the perfect last layer to keep me warm in the high plains. It's my go to for winter running/hiking/cross county skiing and perfect for windy days as well. I cannot say enough about the quantity. After six years of heavy use, it still looks and works as if it's brand new. Good job Marmot!

My favorite jacketI bought my first minimalist jacket in late 2015. I wore this jacket almost daily in the Pacific Northwest climate for over three and a half years. I love everything about this jacket. It's a shell so it's not designed for warmth but the structure, durability, and rain resistance is something I haven't found in any other jacket. When it was time to purchase another jacket (some fraying velcro, some of the seams started to wear) I tried to switch to the PreCip Eco jacket but ended up returning it because I love how much more durable the Minimalist feels. It's more expensive but it's completely worth it. The Minimalist also has larger pockets whereas I was hard-pressed to fit my phone and keys in one pocket of the PreCip. Anyways, would whole-heartedly recommend this jacket and will plan on buying it again in another 3-4yrs.

Works well but doesn't look like itI bought this jacket about year ago and it was in my rotation for about 6 months, before the weather got cold. I like the way it fits and works, but frankly it already looks like garbage. After less than a year of pretty sporadic normal wear it looks incredibly dingy. I washed it a few times according to the instructions and even got some advice from Marmot over the phone, but nothing has worked. I don't feel like I can wear it anywhere other than camping, which is unfortunate for a jacket that costs this much. I would definitely advise against purchasing any of the lighter colors of this jacket.

POCKETS NOT WATERPROOFI have had this jacket for 1 year and only after a few months the gore tex started to become defective. I've tried reproofing it with Nik Wax etc. I got caught in a downpour and my phone was in my pocket assuming it would be safe. When I got home my pockets were FULL of water and my phone died as a result.
