Spring and summer showers can go on for hours, so unless getting soaked and cold somehow tickles your fancy, don't head out the door or out on the trail without adequate protection. The Marmot Women's Southridge Jacket combines 10K rated waterproof protection and breathable comfort to keep you dry and fresh while you're running errands or scrambling up to a peak in a downpour. The adjustable, brimmed hood effectively shelters your head, and you can draw in the hood and hem, as well as tighten the hook and loop cuffs, to completely seal out the elements. A water resistant zipper on the exposed chest pocket keeps rain drops from seeping in through the cracks, and zippered hand pockets protect small items inside or offer a place to warm your hands if it's chilly. You won't feel constricted in the jacket thanks to the Angel Wing construction that facilitates free movement, and the hard wearing polyester face fabric along with long lasting MemBrain waterproofing will keep the jacket going strong through many rainy seasons.
