Description

Packable, waterproof, and outfitted for necessity and comfort.

Pack the Marmot Men's PreCip Jacket as your main shell during ultralight backpacking missions, or stash this highly-packable waterproof jacket in your bag as an emergency layer in case your heavyweight hard shell develops a leak. Minimalist without leaving out any vital fit or finish details, the Precip has a versatile array of features. From underarm venting to full seam taping, and a carefully cut fit that provides full range of upper body motion you'll be hard-pressed to find an excuse to leave home without it.
  • Precip technology uses lightweight dual-coating of PU to create a waterproof-and-breathable barrier to repel water on the outside, and allow sweat and vapor to escape from within
  • Chin guard lined with DriClime puts a soft layer of fabric beween your chin and the top of the collar
  • Angel-Wing Movement shapes the jacket specifically for a wide, free range of motion at the arms and shoulders
  • A double storm flap covers the front zipper and secures with a hook-and-loop closure for added protection from the rain

Industry standard

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

If I lived in the wet NW or hunted in Alaska, I might see the need for a $400 shell but in dry Colorado a PreCip is all you need for the occasional downpour.

It fits great and you can easily layer a fleece pullover and puffy underneath with no problems or wear it on its own.

I am looking for a good rain shell. Which jacket do you recommend, Marmot Precip, Patagonia Torrentshell, or Mountain Hardwear Plasmic?

Best Answer Responded on

Wow, you can't go wrong with the Marmot Precip. I've been using and abusing Precips since their first release several years ago. I currently have last years model, but after seeing the 2014, I'll be picking up another. The Precip is always in my bag and I've used it from Mt. Rainier to heavy rains in the Olympic Coast Range, the Wasatch Mountains and of course Southern Utah. The pit zips, packable pocket, helmet compatible hood, great breathability and under $100 make this an all round Backcountry experience guaranteed to be dry.

I don't see any short comings with this jacket. Love the fact that it is a rain jacket with the pit zips. I think that it fits well and is true to size.

Thanks for your question Sanford Shew!
This jacket is made in a 3XL on Marmot's site, however, here at Backcountry, we do not have that size available. I'm sorry about that!

don't waste your time.

I guess the old saying "you get what you pay for" goes well with this jacket. While it isn't that expensive of a jacket it definitely doesn't stand up. The hood is crap, the adjustment for the hood it a piece of velcro on the back of the hood that is suppose to keep tension on the hood and keep the hood from dropping down into your field of vision. The flaw is whenever you look down thie velcro pops off and hood falls in your face obstructing your field of vision. The second flaw is the collar in the front. the top of the collar is right at chin level, which puts pressure on the chin. This is very annoying, it should have more room away from your face and be a little taler to keep the elements out. A better example of what a hood and collar should be like would be the arcteryx gamm mx hoodie. Anyway after 10 min of wearing this waste of money I realized it would not work. Unfortunately the first time I wore the jacket it was past 90 days of purchasing it. Backcountry.com changed their return policy and I was unaware of it, so when I went to return it they wouldn't take it because I didn't have the original tags. Big thumbs down for this jacket and backcountry.com

I am an avid outdoorsman and retired Army Paratrooper and have worn many a rain jacket. I have traditionally used the US Special Forces issued Gore-Tex Jacket during the summers Super tough but a bit heavy/hot for summer adventures. I bought my Marmot Precip to use as a lightweight summer hiker/EDC raincoat. After several months of use I am really enjoying it. Pros are the lightweight breathability, the loose fit (as I am wearing at least a baselayer and at times a midlayer under it), the velcro cuffs ( I prefer these over elastic ones like my Outdoor Research Halogen Jacket) and the waterproofness in extended rains. Cons are I would like an additional cinch cord around the middle like the one at the bottom and a Napolean (sp?) pocket, with cord hole for electronics. For the price, however, I am pleased with the Marmot. I have not experienced any problems adjusting the hood. The two cinch cords pull it tight. I always wear a brimmed cap when hiking in the rain so the issue of the hood pulling down is N/A. I have found that even with my expensive technical shells I need a brimmed cap under my hood for rain/sleet/snow protection. After reading the review complaing of the hood falling I did try the jacket on a hike in the rain w/o my cap. I didn't have a problem with the back velcro coming undone when I lowered my head. I also don't find the chin enclosure too loose. Perhaps our builds are different? I would not hesitae to purchase it again.

I'm with Tuco. Gypsy is either an Arcteryx employee, or just a fanboy who thinks that any piece of outerwear that costs less than $300 is a waste of time. The PreCip is a solid rain shell.

Gypsy - Want to sell it? What size is it? Color? How much?

Great Rain Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

Performs as expected. Marmot makes quality gear that rarely disappoints. Worth the investment. I have had one of mine for 8 years now.

Preclip

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

This makes for a great outer layer during these cold days. I wear mine often. High quality, light weight, and efficient.

Fear rain no more!

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

I cannot count how many jackets I own, but this one is by far my most durable. This thing repels rain like nobodies business! It also does a great job at blocking out wind and light chill. I use this when the weather is nothing but rain in the Spring for yard work, walking into town, biking, backpacking etc... It's a great jacket and also a great price. I've also put it in the wash several times to get odor/mud out of it and it still holds it's waterproof ness like new. I would definitely buy this jacket!

Great

Slimmer fitting than the Aegis. So far no issues with water leaking. Recommend for someone looking to lightweight protection for biking, trail-running, and especially if you are looking for a slim fit with longer arms.

Go'n Lightweight In The Backcountry

Waterproof, windproof, breathable and lightweight go to jacket for all outdoor activities. I've used them from Mt. Rainier to cycling and it's never let me down. This new Precip is seeing it's first day backcountry sking and kept the elements on the outside and allowing a first run of the season with a smile.

Leaky Letdown

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

Purchased this jacket as my main rain protection for canoe trips. Luckily it did not rain very hard on my trip. But I wore it a few times back home while walking the dog in a good downpour. I went out all confident thinking I've got the right gear now, only to discover the jacket was completely soaking wet on the inside when I took it off.
I had a couple of layers on underneath that would have trapped the moisture from my body so I have to assume it let the water in from the outside.
In other words it's a piece of crap that isn't worth a nickel. I guess I should have bought Gore-Tex after all.

Probably wearing cotton underneath

Ummmm, user error. Don't sweat like a whore in church.

Responded on

What layer traps moisture close to your body? A latex sheet? Good fabrics will wick moisture away from your body; some of that moisture will condense on the inside of your shell. That doesn't mean that the shell is leaking, and it's much better than having your inner layers soaked.

good manufactures!!

Great Jacket for the Price.
Like other customers, I find this jacket to be an excellent value. Lightweight, but looks to be water-tight. I have not had the chance to use it yet, but it is just what I was looking for in terms of design and weight

how can you review something you've never used?

Good to go

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

I take this everywhere I go for the those be prepared moments.
It is light and packs relatively small. There are much better options if you are needing something to pack smaller, but for my price range this was perfect. Pockets are easy to use. I hiked out 10 miles in the rain with a pack on and I did not get wet.

Always Two Places, In or On

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

When I say two places, in or on, I mean "in" my pack or "on" my back. I've been buying the Precip since Marmot first introduced it. One, you can't beat the quality and price and two Marmot stands behind their products 100%.

I've used the Precip from Mt. Rainier to cool PNW rainy summer bike rides. It's my go to jacket. Yea, it's light weight and not a severe rated jacket. I get it in a size larger so I'm able to layer under for the cold weather. Washing will take away the waterproofing but using Nikwax products will bring it back to life. If you use it like I do, don't expect it to outlast a $500 alpine jacket. This is a $100 jacket and you get what you pay for plus more. I get two plus years out of each one and I don't worry about abusing it, plus when you get tired of your current color you won't mind shucking out for another one in a new color.

The sizing can run a bit large for most. Using a large for me, 6' 175#, allows room for layering and the hood enables wearing a helmet.

The jacket pictured here is my first Precip 4 or 5 years ago and I'm awaiting a new one as I write this.

Trustworthy and Loyal

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

I have had this jacket for probably 5 years now. Got it on steep and cheap on a killer deal. It has been with me through everything. It saved my life(literally), when I got caught in a surprise blizzard in the north couloir of mt. emerson in the sierras, keeps me visible when riding my bike around town, and has kept me dry in numerous rain showers. the DWR coating has started to wear off but I treat it with Nikwax a few times a year to keep it going. Fit is boxy.

The obvious drawback to buying online is not being able to try and feel the products. So, I'm wondering, when it comes to the Marmot PreCip vs. the North Face Venture jacket, which one is better? Especially vis-a-vis comfort.

Best Answer Responded on

I own the current precip jacket in size medium and it works well for me. I also have an learlier version North face rain jacket that was easily torn do to its extreme light weight, which I also enjoyed. Think the Marmot may be a bit more durable. Both great jackets though.

Good fit great price

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

For the price, you can't go wrong! This jacket has kept me dry on a few wet days on the river. I'm 5'8" and 170lbs, I typically wear a S-M. I bought this in a M with the intention of layering, which it works perfectly for.

Just right, COOL for FLIGHT

I bought this for running in the rain in cooler weather, and it is perfect. Great fit, with proper layering, no over-heating at all. On a recent 8 mile run, in rain and wind, worked great. First Marmot piece I have bought, and the quality in the pants, and jacket are excellent. Don't waste your money on the Gore-Tex, these are lighter, and way cooler. Oh and the pants stay up, no problem.
