Marmot PreCip Jacket - Men's

Bring it on.

While some may see "chance of rain" as a sign to cancel the day's hike, the Marmot Men's PreCip Jacket sees it as an invitation. It offers waterproof/breathable performance and a packable design to make it ideal for everything from treks in unpredictable weather to errands around town on a rainy day.

The NanoPro fabric provides complete protection from the elements while still allowing heat and moisture vapor to escape, keeping you from getting soaked with sweat when you're slogging your way up a hill. And if you're still feeling too warm, open up the zippered underarm vents for instant relief. Angel-Wing Movement allows uninhibited mobility during technical treks, and Pack Pockets are accessible even when you're sporting a backpack.

  • Breathable weather protection that won't let you down
  • NanoPro fabric is dynamically air permeable for comfort
  • Angel-Wing Movement allows unrestricted mobility
  • Zippered underarm vents expel excess heat
  • Pack Pockets can be accessed with backpack on
  • DriClime-lined chin guard eliminates chafing
  • Hood rolls up into collar when you don't need it
  • Packs into own pocket for easy storage

3 stars for breath-ability. Hiked 2 miles in rain/snow, 28 degrees, 20 lbs on my back medium thickness polyester long sleeve underneath, pit zips fully open and by the end the inside was full of condensation. It kept the rain from coming in though. For the money I thought it would do better. I thought the pit zips were the answer to this age old problem! Oh well it looks good.

Morning,

My recent order of Marmot waterproof trousers and jacket arrived on time and was a very good fit for my size. I could not wait to use them on my week long adventure in Patagonia as i knew it was going to be wet during our stay.

I was very dissapointed by the performance of this rain gear. They held out for 2 hrs in light rain and then the water started seeping thtough and soaking my undergarment warm gear. Once the jacket had got wet just once i found that it leaked through everytime there was a light shower or drizzle after that. I would not recommend purchasing these garments to anyone else and i feel that it was money wasted where I should have purchased something else.

Sorry for the negative feedback but i was very frustrated during my holiday hike and very disappointed in the clothing performance, so in this case i believe negative feedback is due

Great, but for fit

Greetings
Just received the Precip Jacket. I checked its construction and it compared favorably to my other more expensive shells. Was thrilled until I put it on. It fits as an XXL shirt, but certainly not as an outer-shell-rain-jacket (or windbreaker) ought to fit. That is: roomy for layering over shirt, & sweater or vest. But for sizing, I would’ve been pleased.

reliable and effective

    Well-fitting, effective against the rain. Very light weight, easily packed in small spaces.

    always my first choice under normal conditions here in the pacific northwest, hiking, backpacking, skiing (mostly back country) cross country skiing. packs small, lightweight, underarm zippers to vent, pockets, hood, the length of the cut is just right. I've never had the problem with the inner lining breaking down and I have used my first one for quite a few years year round, especially skiing every week well into June or July. unfortunately I left my original one somewhere and nobody's put a shout out, dang, so got a new one at backcountry.com at 25% off, free shipping after trying them on at REI, and backcountry had the color I wanted

    Can't beat the price

    Solid, go-to jacket for rainy days. My boyfriend wears L/XL jackets, depending on the style and fit. With this jacket, he went with the XL just to have some extra room underneath for layering if needed. This is a breathable, comfortable jacket and the underarm vents are a great feature for the Summer. It also has a nice size hood that's adjustable which is nice.

    Good for the price

    Not the most waterproof rain jacket I've ever owned, but it does the job. Looks good overall, not super flashy. Stays dry for at least a few hours in the rain. Breathes really well. Keeps you as dry as anything in its price range.

    Solid Jacket, takes a beating

    I'm a fan of this jacket in almost every way other than one (keep reading for that). It's a solid shell if you're layering, keeps out wind/rain like a champ and packs small. I'm a fan of the bright orange because I hike a lot where hunting is common. The material is high quality, especially for the price-point and I've never had issues with leaks. My only gripe, and this is a small one is that the pit vents are horribly designed- it's impossible to open/close them without using both hands to hold the jacket in multiple ways to get it to zip. This is my go-to over my Patagonia shell during late-spring, summer and early-fall hikes. Roll it up, toss it in your pack and be grateful when the storm rolls in!

    Just a side note: Being tall/thin I struggle with getting a good fit in anything... if you're over 6 feet I would recommend you go for a large, though be warned, it may be a bit boxy... but it's great with a couple layers under it.

    Solid jacket

    Fan for the last 15 years.

    Good affordable rain jacket.

    Bought this rain jacket when on sale.
    XL fits true to size and roomy enough to layer underneath for colder weather wear. Wore it on rainy days and it works well.
    It's very lightweight and probably meant for warmer weather but seems good enough to try wearing during the winter with fleece layer underneath to keep warm and block out the wind. Wear gloves, though, to keep the hands warm.
    Price was relatively affordable especially when it's on sale and you use a coupon to get additional savings (bought slightly over $50) though bought elsewhere.

    There are better rain jackets out there, but not in this price range. Everything you need when you only want to spend $75 to $100 (on sale).

    OK,...but.,

    The Precip is designed for light to moderate rain conditions so it's adequate for most of Portland & the PNW. What is irritating is the lack of an adjustment strap for the hood. Because the jacket is light weight it lacks structure to maintain hood position without flopping over hindering vision. Neither a difficult or expensive fix

    Exactly what I was expecting

    • Size Bought: L

    Bought this jacket last week. Tried it on, not used on a hike yet.

    This is exactly what I was expecting. I wanted a light weight hiking jacket that I can take on a mountain when I start the day in 80 degree sun but find a storm at the summit. Light weight for hiking. The fabric is as expected to be light and waterproof, a little friction noise but it probably less than you'll find from similar competitors. The fabric is not as durable as say my ski jacket, but that was again expected.

    I am 31 yo, 5'-10" 155 lbs fit. I am usually between a M/L in any clothing. Looking at the reviewers at my size it looks like people are buying both. I went with a L because generally I like hoodies and jackets to fit looser than my M shirts. L was perfect for me, I probably would have returned a M for a L had I started there. It fit true to size, I don't think the L is baggy at all (I tried it on over fleece). If you are buying for day hiking, I would probably go with a L considering if you want to put it on, you'll want the coverage. If you are looking at week long back-country in hot weather and just need to stay dry, then M might be easier to pack.

    I have spent $1,500 over many years on this site and have yet to be disappointed in gear. Most my gear is used in CO mountains or Moab trips.

    Stay dry my friends.

    Very light weight rain jacket. The zip down arm pits for venting are great. Works good for backpacking and day hiking. The stow away hood is pretty cool. Basically, is perfect for anything you do on those rainy days. It can keep you dry it a down pour for a few hours!!!

    Great jacket!

      Wore this jacket for 4 days of camping in the rain and was dry the whole time! Super thin material and gives just about as much ventilation as you can expect from a rain jacket.

      I bought this rain slicker for my main man. I got him the size Large in Greenland. The fit and color is as expected. It has not been tested in the rain, but looking forward to seeing how it holds up.

      Functional jacket but too short

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small

      I've used this jacket on short trips or in conditions where a heavier trekking jacket or ski jacket are unwarranted. My biggest complaint is that the torso is too short. I wear wool button down shirts, and the shirts are longer than the jacket. Wind will blow rain up underneath the bottom of the jacket. For me, the jacket ends just below belt-line. A longer model that covered down to upper thigh would be much preferable to me. Otherwise, it is a decent, basic, lightweight semi-waterproof layer. Even if it were longer, the price seems too high for this design and material.

      LOVE IT!

      I had this jacket in a heavy rain storm and it kept me dry, I love that it is only the membrane and I can wear whatever I want underneath according to the temperature. I loved it so much I bought one for my brother for his birthday.

      Excellent Jacket

      I love this jacket, it is super light and fulfills all its promises , I use it as a third layer for low mountains .

      It has great resistance to rain and also is a great windbreak.

      The angel wing movements sistem is perfect.

      The sizes are correct.

      I would recommend it to anyone who will not make high mountain, can be used for large outputs as well as for a simple walk around the city.



      Excellent jacket.

      Thanks for the reviews Arturo! Super helpful to get this feedback out to the community.

      Does exactly what it should do

      • Size Bought: Extra Large

      I got this in preparation for a backpacking trip through Europe where I knew it would rain a lot. It has kept me dry and warm. I do notice myself sweating when it's raining but still warm out, so despite the armpit zippers that open the jacket all the way to your body, no mesh, I still got a little warm. I got an extra large for my wider shoulders and muscular/fatty build. The sleeves are too long for me and the body is too large, but the shoulders are perfect. Great jacket. Look online for the same jacket. Maybe you will find it cheaper and backcountry will price match.
