The Marmot Ether Driclime is a natural development of Marmots much acclaimed DriClime Windshirt. It has the same superb wicking DriClime fabric lining, providing you with unequalled wicking properties and comfort.
A face fabric has been used that offers the same great windproof and water resistant properties, though it is lighter and more tactile. In addition the Ether boasts a hood for extra protection, that is close fitting and can be rolled down out of the way. All these improvements make one of the most versatile and iconic pieces of outdoor kit even better.
DriClime is the inner fabric to the garment. It has been engineered to produce a 3 dimensional wicking process that draws moisture quickly from the surface of your skin to the the outer surface of the fabric. It is here that the moisture spreads over the larger surface of the fabric allowing it to evaporate quickly, keeping you comfortable and warm.

Used this for the first time over the weekend as a replacement for a Rab Cirrus windshirt. The advantage of this over the Rab is the liner, which is useful in preventing any clammy material sticking to your sweaty skin! Feels quite substantial for a windshirt because of the liner too, something to bear in mind if you just want an ultra-thin layer.
The under arm vents proved useful in keeping overheating down, and the hood - although not adjustable - was a good fit.
Only issue I have had is that I put some coins in one of the hand pockets and after a couple of hours scrunched in my rucksack I found the coins inside the liner at the wrist cuff?!? I think the pocket liner carries through to the arms so anything small in the pocket may travel through if the jacket gets inverted at all.
Overall - very happy.

I've used this jacket a few times now since receiving it and it has done its job perfectly as my outer layer whilst climbing in the mountains! It blocks the wind completely unlike fleece jackets I used to wear, so will no longer be freezing in the wind on belays. The venting under the arms means that I never overheat whilst climbing. Packing into it's own pocket and also having a hood are a really bonus as well!

My marmot Ether Driclime arrived this morning the temperature is 5 degrees so I walked up to the supermarket wearing just the Ether Driclime nothing underneath. I must say I was really pleased it was quite warm although you could feel a slight chill nothing much. The pockets are fantastic the chest pocket is at just the correct angle. This is a very versatile garment I would not put anything to heavy in the pockets mind. I intend on bringing this with a Marmot Driclime Windshirt plus a base layer bamboo or merino as a clothing system when I am hiking. All in all the Marmot Driclime either has really impressed me it is very light weight & windproof plus the Driclime inner lining adds to the overall comfort, fantastic. I got mine in black which looks great with the contrast light grey logo on the breast and the arm and down the front zip.

Marmot Ether Driclime jacket is highly breathable but at same time wind and water repellent as rain simply runs off, it is lightweight and moderately warm, easy to carry wind breaker for high-output activities in cool weather.
Good build quality, wicks great, dries out fast, keeps me warm, and for being pretty lightweight with its 260g for a large it still seems durable. Design is simple and functional, with a hood, twin zippered but not lined hand warmer pockets and a mesh lined chest pocket to stuff the jacket inside. Mesh underarm vents enhance the airflow between inner layers. Hood is minimalist, not adjustable and not lined either - wish it was, tailored for a snug fit.
The Driclime liner has a soft, brushed surface, to reduce the cold touch effect to your skin what in combination with outer shell provides good insulation on it self already, but combined with the right underwear it is warm enough for intense movement at lower temperatures.
Therefore it covers more activities than many other more expensive and heavier jackets where freedom of movement, high breathability and a lightweight weather protection are important, till when you will need a waterproof jacket.

After considering a number of soft-shell options, I read Andy Kirkpatricks blog in which he sings the praises of Pertex and micropile jackets such as the Marmot Ether Driclime. This jacket is considerably cheaper than many other soft-shells, but seems to tick most of the boxes. It is windproof, extremely breathable and comfortable to wear, very light, and mildly water-resistant. I have been wearing it without a baselayer, both on its own and under a shell, and have found it performs well. On the downside, the hood has no adjustment, making it defunct when it's blowing a hoolie. Also it kept riding up under my rucksack, although to be fair, everything does. Overall good performance at a fair price.
