- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I hate this jacket! I took it on a weeklong backpacking trip this past summer. It rained for two days on the trip, so I really put this jacket to the test. Epic fail. First of all, the jacket soaked all the way through. Also, it took forever to dry out! We stayed in shelter one of the nights it rained and I was able to hang my wet gear over night. Everything dried out, but this jacket. Even my boots were dry in the morning, but not this stupid jacket. I have other stuff from Marmot, and have no complaints. So maybe I got a lemon with the Precip Jacket. But, I haven't really depended on any of it as much I did this jacket. So my experience with this jacket has ruined the Marmot for me as a whole. My advice, pass on Marmot gear.
