Marmot Minimalist Jacket
Fabric: Gortex Pac-lite
Bought this jacket as its function was for 'high aerobic' activities. Ran in this today in light rain but after 45 mins running jacket was wet on the inside, not to the extent of sweat running down your arms. Jacket was wet on tops of the shoulders and inside the arms. I did have both pit vents open.
Still deciding if it's worth the $399 NZD price tag as doesn't really do all it's say.
