The Marmot Bantamweight Jacket weighs less than 150 grams thanks to Pertex® Shield

Introducing Marmot’s Bantamweight Jacket for women and men; described as the lightest fully featured jacket ever made by the American outdoor clothing specialists. It weighs 141 grams - about the same as an orange!

Marmot has chosen to use Pertex Shield – the ultimate combination of breathability and waterproof protection in a comfortable, wearable fabric.

Pertex® Shield is designed specifically for intense activity in wet weather or humid conditions. Its ability to stay breathable even in the most sweltering or soaking of atmospheres means outdoor athletes can stay cool and dry. No matter how hot and wet it becomes - inside or outside the jacket. 

Winner of Outside Online’s Gear of the Year “Best Jackets of 2019” who described it as the “perfect balance” between waterproof and breathable. And likening its performance to a hard shell, despite it feeling like a windbreaker.  

Stretchy with an athletic-fit and a whole host of features including underarm laser-drilled holes for ventilation, seam-taping, internal and external pockets, and an adjustable hood – this is an outdoor jacket for extreme protection without the weight. And it all stuffs into an internal pocket for the ultimate streamlined outdoor experience. RRP £270
