Had to returnI bought this jacket and The Minimalist jacket and ultimately returned the knife edge jacket. I was excited to finally find a women’s Marmot rain jacket that had a chest pocket but could hardly fit my phone in there. Also, I was not a fan of the hand pockets, I know there are designed to be able to still access them while having a belt from a backpack around your waist but I wasn’t a fan of the mesh lining, I feel like I could rip a hole in it. I loved the dark teal color but ultimately returned. I am 5’5” and 130 lbs and a small fit great with room for layers.

So far so good!I purchased the Knife Edge shell to use for a variety of activities: back country skiing & ice climbing in winter, and backpacking & climbing throughout the year. So far it's only gotten winter use, but it's been dry & comfortable to ski in. I'm 5'9, 150 lbs, normally wear a M but purchased a L to layer under. It fits great with my puffy underneath but is also comfortable to wear with a midlayer. As a bonus the teal color is really pretty and the cut of the jacket provides some shape instead of just being a straight-up-and-down tent, which I've found in some other shells I've had. Overall very pleased and excited to use this year!

Gorgeous garment.My wife has been totally spoiled with this jacket. It's built for someone whose climbing mountains or hiking obscure trails, but keeps her dry and comfortable on a rainy workday. The first thing one noticed with this garment are the zippers that are treated for waterproofing. Also, looking inside the jacket one can see all the seams are waterproofed. I've included photos of the zippers and the seam taping. Another feature that's really cool are the vent zippers under the arms and the mesh pockets. Since the jacket is so waterproofed, one has to vent it out once in awhile. All in all a quality garment that's over engineered.

Simplicity at it's finest...If you're always on the move, always needing a versatile jacket for those 'just-in-case' moments, and always trying to keep your style in tact, this jacket is for you. It's absurdly lightweight, packs up to about fist-size, and keeps every drop of water away. With all the bells and whistles of jackets these days, I have been more than impressed by the simple, yet functional features of this one.

Sleek JacketLiving in FL we get rain all the time. It is not worth an umbrella with the way it rains but this jacket has been a life saver. It is lightweight enough to wear anytime but the waterproof part was it's selling point. I love how the rain rolls off of this jacket. There are plenty of pockets that have zippers that allow your possessions to stay dry. I love that it is tailored to fit a woman and is not bulky and unflattering. I recommend this jacket to anyone for use as a raincoat or as an everyday lightweight zip up. I keep it in my car and it is so handy, I don't know what I would do without this.

Exceeded high expectations!As an avid hiker and outdoorsman, I’ve always found Marmot gear to be comfortable, durable, and stylish...so when I found the need to get new rain gear, I was very excited to upgrade to the Knife Edge Rain Jacket. The verdict is in, it exceeded my already high expectations!
First and foremost it keeps you dry, which at the end of the day is the most important feature of any raincoat. But that isn’t all. Often rain jackets will feel clammy and binding, and too they can feel overly warm, especially during a spring or summer storm. But the Knife Edge has accounted for this by offering plenty of ventilation while still keeping you dry and comfortable. My favorite feature is the ability to unzip the underarm and armpit areas to keep the breeze flowing. Too, the pockets have a mesh interior so my hands don’t feel sweaty.
It is a lightweight jacket, and easy to pack into small luggage, while still offering maximum protection from the elements. Too, it keeps me warm despite its thinness, which is another hallmark of Marmot gear.
There is Velcro on the wrists to keep moisture from getting in up the arms, and a slip tie at the back of the hood to keep it snug and waterproof. I very much like the hood’s stiff, short bill which helps keep my face dry without cinching over my eyes or obstructing my vision.
The zipper’s move easily, the stitching is flawless, and the color is consistent and rich. It has a tailored fit that is far more flattering than most rain jackets. In fact, this is my go to jacket, even when there isn’t a cloud in the sky.
And because it’s a Marmot, I trust in its rugged durability even in the heaviest conditions. You can put this jacket through the paces, and it will look fantastic doing it...and I anticipate it lasting for many years to come.

Great rain jacketI bought this to replace a Patagonia rain jacket that I hated (it fit weird, short arms and too loose in the body). This jacket reminded me why I love Marmot so much. Fits great, has enough ease that I can wear it over a hoodie but isn't too big. Hood gives me great face coverage in the driving rain, keeping the rain off my glasses. Most rain jackets keep my hair dry but not my glasses.

4/5I looked far and wide for a rain jacket and settled on this one. It's pretty lightweight, fabric is soft and not loud and plastic-y, feels good next to the skin. I bike a lot and it's surprisingly hard to find a good gore-tex jacket with pit-zips in bright colors for visibility. Knocking off a star because I don't like the neck -- there's way too much fabric so it's rubbing up against your chin and mouth. Probably could've sized down too but I like having room for a jacket underneath. Especially on sale, it's a great deal.
