Marmot Driclime Vest - Women's
When you rope up wearing the Marmot Womenís Driclime Vest, your arms are free to move up the wall while the wind- and water-resistant DriClime fabric keeps your mind on your hands and feet. Even if you just plan to scout new routes, the Driclime Vestís liner wicks away moisture and breathes as you traverse under the giant cathedrals of rock. High up among on the ledges, the wind can come up from the valley without warning, so the vest also comes with a DriClime-lined collar and chin guard for a happy place in the gale-force gusts.

I don't normally write reviews, but felt compelled to contribute on this one. There are some great points about this vest- it's a beautiful bright green color, light as air, fits in your pocket when you get too warm, windproof, water-resistant, perfect for biking and/or anything outdoors. On the down side, this vest is not very fitted. I wear a 36D and have girl hips and it bunched a bit in the middle. Also, neither of side pockets have zippers or velcro, so you can't really keep anything in them. There is an oddly placed pocket on the left boob (sorry) that has a zipper, so I put my iPod in there. The thing that drives me nuts is that now I have one square boob and one round one. This is very unsightly. This may not seem like a big deal to some, but I feel like I can be outdoorsy and look cute at the same time. This vest makes it hard to accomplish that. There is no other place to keep a phone or iPod besides this pocket, and the rest of my biking clothes are sans pockets. All in all, one square boob is a small price to pay for a vest that is so pretty otherwise. Just take your iPod out of your pocket before entering the bar. :)

LOVE IT! This vest is awesome. Just right for spring weather with a t-shirt underneath. The perfect shell for biking, hiking and running. Runs true to size; I'm 125lbs and 5'5", small fits great, not too tight. Wish there were more colors, I would get them all!

One of the best vests for layering I've found for mild/moderate weather. I was surprised at how lightweight it was, yet extremely functional. It can be rolled up in a small bundle the size of your fist, weight is negligible, and it does a super job keeping the wind out while not inhibiting physical movement. It instantly became my favorite lightweight vest. Love it!

If you do endurance events such as a 6 hour cycle navigation on a mountain bike - this is perfect. For 6 hours I cycled in the Snowy Mountains region outside Sydney and this vest was PERFECT. The zip goes up when cold - then down for breathing when you get too hot. It blocks out all wind. I wore a jersey underneath and no arm warmers. Temperature dropped to about 5 degrees then i felt I needed arm warmers.
