MarmotPreCip Jacket - Women's

Don't get drenched or let off a stench.

Protect yourself from precipitation while releasing your perspiration in the breathable, waterproof Marmot Women's PreCip Jacket. The PreCip is 43% more breathable than last year and offers solid 10K-rated waterproof protection. Throw on this comfortable shell when heading out on the trail in wet weather, and its microporous NanoPro membrane with microscopic, densely-packed pores and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish will go to work keeping rain drops out while letting perspiration through. The DriClime mesh chin guard prevents moisture buildup from your warm, moist breath and dripping sweat—moving it quickly away from your skin and drying quickly. Fully taped seams ensure rain doesn't sneak through the cracks, and you can batten down against the elements by pulling in the hood, hem, and cuffs. When you start getting steamy huffing up a hill, unzip the underarm vents to let cool air in and pent-up heat escape.

Great rain jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: large

I needed a jacket to replace my 15 yr old Marmot raincoat that was fabulous. This is the closest I could find. It has pit zips which are essential and would have loved body zips too but .... this jacket has a nice shape for a woman. I am petite in height but athletic in shape. Originally chose a medium but found the arms a bit restrictive and with anything other than a t-shirt, would be tight so returned for the large. Fits great. I like that the hood can be stored if not needed. Feels like it will hold up to the torrential rains of southern Florida - my fingers are crossed. Great price as well.

Stowable+Waterproof For A Great Price

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

Typically you won't find features such as breathability, ventilation, roll-away hood, adjustable cuffs, in a rain jacket at this price point. I couldn't be more happy with this rain shell. it's perfect for hiking and backpacking, and I've started carrying it in my fly fishing pack. The fit is regular with room for movement and light layers. On top of the 2.5 layer NanoPro waterproof membrane, the jacket has a DWR coating to protect from wind, rain, and occasional snow. Adjustable hood and cuffs allow you to cinch down the jacket when the rain is sideways, and loosen it up when you don't need as much protection during a light drizzle. I have the "Crocodile" color which is a gorgeous green. This jacket does not breathe as well as other rain jackets, but pit zips are a major upgrade that helps to combat this problem. The weight comes in around 10oz, which is awesome considering the pockets and zippers. Overall this is a GREAT mix of price, weight, and weather protection.

gift for mom

  • Fit: Runs small

This jacket was a gift for my mom. She loves the color (Bright Violet) but it fit a little too snug in the chest and back. She wears XL normally but I had to return it and order an XXL for her. Otherwise she is happy with the jacket.

    How does this compare to the Patagonia Torrentshell?

    I bought this for my wife before heading to the PNW. It did a great job of keeping her dry but it doesn't breath all that well. Overall it was a good purchase for the price.

    Beautiful rain jacket

    I love the color! It kept me warm too! I also have one in a light teal. I would take one in every color if I could.

    Perfect for Travel

      I love this rain jacket. It packs well and keeps me dry! Windproof too of course which is also helpful.

      Great Rain jacket

      • Size Bought: XL

      Definitely waterproof. I wore this jacket for a week and was on a glacier in Iceland while it was pouring and standing next to several waterfalls or below one and this jacket kept me dry. The one bummer is that I thought I bought red, but it's really a pink color. The color I selected was Persian Red XL. I bought XL so I could layer underneath. I am normally a large. I also wish there was a pocket in the front in the chest area for gloves, but I should have looked more closely. Also packs super small so it's nice when traveling.

      I had been eyeing this model of jacket for a year or two and finally decided to bite the bullet. It is true to size and does what it does well: keeps me dry! I've mostly used it in winter as an outer shell when it's not cold enough for my parka, but when I still demand to be kept dry during snow or rain. I love it and highly recommend to those unsure about whether or not it holds up!

      Love my new jacket! It's super light weight, and breathable. I can't wait to wear it on hikes around the pacific ocean, down here in San Diego!

      It Works

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

      I bought this jacket as I was looking for something affordable but reliable. It's got some nice features like the high neck and the armpit zips. It's not the most breathable. I've found it to be a bit uncomfortable when bike commuting during warm wet days. It's done OK on rainy hikes, but there's certainly room for improvement although for the price point, it's a standout. It's much lighter and more comfortable than my earlier North Face rain jacket (which I purchased around the same price).

      We keep our precips in the jeep for the surprise rain storm or random adventure we weren't expecting rain clouds. It holds up and performs very well for this. Not bombproof like gore tex, but a solid solution if you're wiling to recoat with DWR occasionally. We've been using these jackets for 4 years now, no trouble, always dry.

      Gift for my Mom

      • Fit: True to size

      I got this jacket for my Mom and she loves it. It is very light weight and packs down small but still has a durable feel and keep the water and wind out. The breathability is also great, especially when hiking in warm humid environments like south GA.

      Not for backpacking, but cute!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Cute jacket, and great for the price! Perfect for day to day use

      However if you are doing any type of long distance backpacking/hiking where you may need a good rain jacket, I would not suggest. On my thru hike I was the first of my group to always have their rain jacket soaked through. I ended up ditching it, I was originally sold by the price. The saying "waterproof only goes so far" is true, but this would could have gone a liiitttttle bit further....

      Awesome rain coat

        I am 5’ 6” female, 120 pounds, lanky with long arms. The small fits perfect. This rain coat works great in torrential weather!

        Great jacket

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This is the perfect jacket to take with you on any adventure. I normally wear a medium but went up to the large so I could have room to layer underneath it. I took this all over Italy with me and it was perfect.

        Odd Fit

        • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
        • Fit: Runs large
        • Size Bought: Small

        I ended up returning this jacket because the fit was a little odd on me. The jacket hit at a weird spot on my hip and kind of draped like a tent making for an unflattering fit on me. I'm pretty short though with an even shorter torso, so it could be great for someone a bit taller. Loved the color options and material. Super lightweight and would be great for backpacking and camping.
