MarmotPreCip 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. If you're still feeling too warm, you can open up the zippered underarm vents for instant cooling relief. You've got Marmot's signature Angel-Wing Movement design for uninhibited movement that won't cause your jacket to ride up, and accessible Pack Pockets that are placed higher to accommodate a backpack or harness.

  • Breathable weather protection that won't let you down
  • NanoPro fabric offers waterproofing that won't pack heat
  • Angel-Wing Movement allows free and comfortable mobility
  • Zippered underarm vents expel excess heat
  • Pack Pockets can be accessed with backpack or harness

  • Hood rolls up into collar when you don't need it
  • Packs into own pocket for easy storage

Hello community, it is resistant to leaving it a lot of time in the sun, and can it be washed and dried in a machine?

Dryest, yet not ugly, rain jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

This is a rain jacket that my hip teenager son still likes to wear. It keeps him completely dry, but still cool and looking good.

It’s more then a rain jacket.

Totally Excellent!

Would you know if the hood is big enough to go over a bike helmet? Thanks!

Not enough. It doesn't cover the whole helmet, the front part remains uncovered (on a standard XC helmet).

For the price it's amazing!

The only thing you could ask for is maybe lighter or breathable. But that's not a complaint with the price I pay!

Exactly what I wanted

So far I've only tested this in light rain in preparation for a trip during rainy season, but it's performed perfectly. Large underarm vents help keep me cool even when I've worn it in warmer weather, and with the hood up my vision isn't restricted so much that I'm completely turning my head every time I need to look anywhere other than straight ahead. Most importantly, I've stayed bone dry.

excellent

My husband had this jacket and wore it all the time.....he only wanted the same jacket again! It’s more then a rain jacket.

Must Have

This is a fantastic rain jacket. There are so many good things about it. I really like how it feels and fits. Many other rain jackets will make you feel clammy and uncomfortable but this jacket breathes so well that I never experience that problem. I have worn this jacket through rainstorms in different countries all over the world and it has held up really well in each one. I always find myself completely dry and comfortable. I would recommend this jacket to anyone as it is a great value and one of the best rain jackets in my opinon.

Sweet jacket for all that it offers! The jacket itself is lightweight with all the doodahs, I'm much impressed. The fit was excellent. Not too tight and not too baggy, perfect to have a mid layer within and be comfortable in it. The Angel-wing feature really does the right job. Either picking something off the floor or reaching up high, the jacket sticks to my waist. Plus having that packing pocket is easily portable. Really great buy!

Works well!

    I gave this jacket as a gift and he loves using it for working in the hot Virginia rains. He will be using it this summer in Alaska and is excited about how well it breathes compared to jackets he has had in the past!

    Awesome rain jacket!

    Love the fit of it! It's a little roomier for layering underneath. The pit zips help with breathability and it's light enough to take anywhere. Would highly recommend!

    Used this in Peru during the rainy seaso

    I bought and used this jacket in Peru hiking the Inka Trail to Macchu Picchu during the rainy season. It served me well and I am please with its performance. I looked forward to many years of use. I had previous bought a Marmot Precip jacket in 2003 and used and abused it for about 7 years in the mountains all over the western USA. I had replaced with a Marmot Minimalist that I continue to wear, but thought was too heavy for my trek in Peru. Marmot products are top quality. One of my favorite brands for every type of outdoor clothing.

    Great design ruined by cheap fabric

    • Size Bought: large

    I bought this jacket last Fall to replace the same one I had from 1996. Yes, you read that right, 1996. 20 years of untold adventures mostly involving cycling and hiking, and it stood up. Oh, it delaminated, was never very breathable, a puppy ate through the mesh pockets, and by the end it was mostly useless. But, the shell was a robust ripstop nylon and stood up to abuse: not a rip or a puncture noted when it met its end.

    Can't say the same of the current model.

    I use it primarily for cycling and find it waterproof and windproof, even here in Coastal Maine where it is mostly windy and wet. And cold. The sizing is about correct (I bought a large, allowing for layering) and, although I loved my old bright yellow one of yore, the Golden Palm is OK, but dark, and not conducive to good road visibility. My complaint is the fabric: it's thin and cheap. I have yet to mountain bike with it, as I assume it will be ripped to shreds. Yesterday while commuting in a snow storm, had a very low speed fall onto a snowy road resulting in a torn jacket, a torn thermal shirt, and a torn elbow. In a nutshell, the coat offered no protection from essentially, a slushy landing.

    I did a lot of research into jackets, and in the end, wanted one just like my old one. It is all a tradeoff, especially in this price range. However, given my 1996 Marmot, I expected a more durable product.

    Bad breathability for hard cycling

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I purchased the Precip Jacket and also the PreCip pants for daily cycling to work and back for rainy days.
    The breathability does not match about half an hour of fast cycling in a plane area, I got very wet inside my upper body and also in my legs.
    my under layer got really wet and my under cotton pants as well.
    The waterproofness is also very average, after 20 minutes in a low-mis rain, water penetrated inside.
    For medium speed and effort speed, the PreCip is OK, and I don't recall to much over heated, but I expected more.
    When there is no rain, the PreCip is very good and block the wind very very good.
    The fit is good, I took Medium, for the jacket and regular/short for the pants.
    I used the jacket-pants about 20-30 times, but from the beginning I noticed
    the average beathability and watterproofnes performance.
    for walking and hanging around in the city while raining or windy,
    the PreCip is excellent, comfortable, protect from showers and the color
    is very nice. I bought Bright Lichen Green that at that time it was available.

    Lightweight, high quality, good fit.

    This is a very basic rain coat, but it's very well made, has great attention to detail (things like the velcro tab on the back of the hood), has a modern fit that's not overly bulky, and at a great price. I'm a fan of Marmot to begin with and this does not disappoint. I am 5'11", 195 lbs with an athletic build, and a large fits perfectly. The blue color is very nice on this jacket. I disagree with comments about it not being waterproof. Unless you swim with it on it's waterproof. One review mentioned it being short. It's a hip-length coat and, noting my height, it fits exactly that way. If you are very tall (>6'2" or so), you may have length issues.

    Nice simple rain jacket

    Nice jacket, thin rain coat allows for use in good weather or to layer so we sized up.

    Too short.

      I bought this for my boyfriend, and even when I opened it, I had a feeling that it was going to be too short. He tried it on, and I was right. I can't speak for the usage, or the quality unfortunately!

      The worst of both worlds

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This jacket is the worst of both worlds – it’s neither breathable nor waterproof. You get damp in all conditions! The only advantage it has over a garbage bag is durability. I regret buying it and rue spending $60 to relearn that you usually get what you pay for. There's a reason these are always on sale.

      Meh

      I've used this jacket on all my PNW adventures over the past two years (hiking, backpacking, bikepacking, and snowshoeing) and the jacket soaks through after about 30 minutes. I even put on a brand new treatment before taking the jacket to Vietnam, and it still soaked through in under an hour just walking through town. I bought this jacket based on the amazing reviews, but I find it to be a backcountry fail.

      Can't beat the price!

      Solid, go-to jacket for rainy days. This is a breathable, comfortable jacket and the underarm vents are a great feature for the Summer. The hood is a nice size and adjustable.
