  • Marmot PreCip: Defying the rules/elements.

    Jan 22, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very light, packs very small, basic water / good wind protection, fairly fashionable, breathable
    Cons: not completely water-proof (zippers), limited storage, no integrated liner available (no insulation)

    Summary: Marmot is a charismatic family of sciurid rodents of which the most famous even got its own US holiday "Groundhog Day". Despite their fur playing some role in human accessories, the marmot skin this review is all about doesn't harm any animal -- at least ... read more

  • Breathable ??? (From a runners view)

    Sep 19, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Lightweight and packable.
    Cons: Lacks breathability

    Summary: Runners considering this jacket might want to think twice or try a friends if possible. I feel it's lacking in breathability myself, a very important factor to me . I bought this jacket because I just got into ultras and wanted a ... read more

  • The Precip Jacket Wacky Sizing

    Jan 1, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice looking with cool colors, especially the Electric Blue for men.
    Cons: Marmot assigned some really strange sizing to these garments. Needs more pockets on the inside.

    Summary: My wife and I each got one of these jackets very recently after reading the glowing reviews on this site and listening to the salesperson at the outfitter's where we purchased the jackets. We have not had the garments long enough to say whether they are ... read more

  • Fabulous Jacket

    Jan 22, 2004 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: weight, packability, waterproof, quite breathable, not expensive
    Cons: no hand pockets

    Summary: Ounce for ounce (and dollar for dollar) the best rain shell on the market. Great packability, feather-light weight. The Precip coating is quite breathable (I believe Marmot claims it is within 5% of traditional Gore-Tex). I've used it backpacking and ... read more

    Jun 2, 2003 by

    Pros: Very lightweight Looks cool Keeps you warm and dry in heavy rain
    Cons: None apparent

    Summary: I'm an active scouter (that's an adult volunteer) with the Boy Scouts and just attended Scoutmaster Outdoor Leader Training - there was a backpacking training session by a fellow who has been to the Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico 11 times. He has a ... read more

  • Great back packing jacket

    Oct 31, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very light and durable with a great price
    Cons: don't know any

    Summary: Great Jacket for back packing! I used to use the north face mountain light jacket in the winter, and its a great jacket too, but for the lower elevations of the piedmont of north carolina the north face is a bit of an over kill as the weight of it will ... read more

  • A truly functional and packable 3-season shell jacket

    Jul 8, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Affordable, lightweight, waterproof, breathable.
    Cons: Earlist versions (smooth white) of Precip lining is prone to delamination

    Summary: I bought this jacket recently to fill a void in my backpacking gear - a waterproof / breathable jacket that didn't weigh a ton like my winter shell. Weighing in at just over a pound, this jacket is no rock. For one pound you get this: - Well shaped, ... read more

    Pros: very lightweight, marmot quality, waterproof

    Pros: low cost, weight
    Cons: weak breathability, features, durability

    Summary: I have read the other reviews and have a varied opinion. My expierience has been mixed, the jacket works well in light to moderate rain, but the breathability is weak , more like a shower curtain, if you do anything other than easy walking, it gets ... read more

  • You can do better than PreCip.

    May 6, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Light, compressable-- but not notably so.
    Cons: Membrane will delaminate, doesn't breathe well.

    Summary: PreCip is light-years ahead of what Muir, Mallory, Shackleton and other heroes had to work with. But in terms of today's market, PreCip is definitey on the low to medium end of performance. Instead of buying one at REI for $90, shop around for something ... read more
