The Marmot Eclipse Jacket fights moisture with an innovative waterproof fabric made from 100% recycled nylon which is also 100% free of PFC's, from DWR to trims. Offering excellent protection from the wind and rain.
Marmot’s newest cutting-edge proprietary rainwear technology in the Eclipse Jacket redefines the standard. MemBrain® EVODry is the first technology of its kind that reduces environmental impact without compromising functionality. The technology utilizes Upcycled products, PFC-free fabric, lamination and trims, and eco-friendly water repellency treatment.
In addition to these technical materials and constructions, the athletic-fitting Eclipse has pockets strategically placed to be accessible with a pack on and an attached hood with peripheral cord adjustment, allowing this jacket to deliver the best possible protection when you’re out there, on your own.
Marmot makes materials for the EVODry collection using processes that reduce environmental impact without compromising fabric functionality. The 2.5-layer MemBrain Eco is a waterproof/breathable fabric made from 100% recycled nylon in a process that's both water and PFC-free. By using solution dyed yarn, it saves water, energy and reduces CO2 emission. So overall a big tick for an eco friendly garment.
Look and feature-wise, the outer fabric has a slight heathered look to it which is nice and is seam taped throughout. There's two generous size hand pockets which are pack friendly and the zips on the jacket (including pit zips) are PFC-free and water-repellent to preventing water penetrating into the interior. Another great feature is the hood, which can be adjusted ever so precisely to shield you from strong winds. The cuffs on the Eclipse Jacket can be adjusted using velcro fasteners to seal in your body heat as well.
