Just longer than mid-thigh, the Marmot Whitehall rain jacket's 2-layer, seam-taped construction is both waterproof and breathable for full comfort in every condition the city throws your way.


The ultralight Marmot Women's Essence Jacket is the perfect choice for climbing, backpacking, hiking, or running sessions when the weather is uncertain. Its NanoPro MemBrain shell has better waterproof and breathable protection than most ski jackets have, and this fully-taped jacket still weighs only five ounces to keep the weight off your mountainous adventures. The Essence's athletic fit includes Angel-Wing Movement for unimpeded mobility in the vertical world, and integrated cooling vents ensure excellent airflow throughout. This jacket also includes an adjustable hood with a laminated brim that stays out of eyesight while you're belaying, asymmetric cuffs that keep off your hands, a drawcord at the hem for a snug fit, and a zippered chest pocket to protect your phone.
