Comments about MARMOT Men's Trail Wind Jacket:
I use this for runs from 3-25 miles, rides from 6 to 40 miles, and hikes of all lengths. It works well for all. If I was going on a longer hike or run and expecting any form of rain, I'd probably take my Marmot goretex jacket instead. But this is a lightweight form of insurance against wind.
This jacket has a perfect fit... not terribly tight in the torso, but the sleeves are cut right around the armpit, so you have FULL motion. And I mean full motion. I've used other jackets where the seam connecting the sleeve to the torso would tug and pull at my shoulder and shoulder blade. Not my two Marmot pieces.
Regarding wind: This thing blocks it all. I did a 5:45/mi pace tempo run into a 25mph wind, then went for a 20mph cycle into the same wind (luckily back again too!) Both in 40º temperatures, and I wasn't cold at all.
This will really only protect against a light mist. If it's raining at all, prepare to get wet. HOWEVER, the material is so lightweight, and it still protects you from wind, so unless you have a real need to stay dry, such as on an all-day or multi-day excursion, you can use it anyway. I found it worked well in 32º with strong wind-blown rain, as long as I expected to get wet. But it kept me warm, and that's the important thing.
Vents are pretty good, but not as good as my Marmot goretex jacket. You can't get everything though, can you?
