Great Jacket

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

This jacket is light and keeps you nice and dry. It's not the most comfortable of materials though. It does rip very easily as well.

What is the center back length of a medium?

I am 6', 220, 42 waist. Normally, I'd order this in an XL but, since I might be wearing a vest or a light down jacket (Patagonia Nanopuff) underneath in cold weather, I'm thinking that an XXL might be better.
Thoughts?

Responded on

I'd just go with XL. I'm 6'4", 220#, 36" waist, and often wear my XL with a fleece or NanoPuff underneath. That 42"waist might be a little light, but I'm afraid if you go to XXK the thing will hang down around your knees and the sleeves will drag on the ground. Just my 2¢... Have fun!

Not Satisfied

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

Perhaps I purchased a knock -off. But if this is the same Marmot PreCip that I purchased at Sports Basement in San Francisco for the price shown in your add, Then it is an inferior product in my opinion. I wore this jacket on a backpacking trip in New Mexico(Rio Dosa area) in 2010 and it did not keep the cold wind out when I was wearing it over layers of wool. In another backpacking trip(this time in the hill country of Texas) it did not shed water when I was caught in a steady down-pour. And this morning when I went outside to untie some rope from my back porch while it was raining I was wearing the jacket and my shirt got wet within two minutes. i felt the inside of the jacket lining when I was inside the house and it was wet. So this jacket does not live up to the claims of the Marmot Co.

Coming back for more!

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

Wore my precip out after many years of use. Last year I replaced it with a similar Mountain Hardware rain jacket and I just haven't been as happy... Missed the storable hood, packability and breathability. Ordering a new precip right now!

I have a 2006 PreCip jacket that had finally worn out. Are the newer models cut any different than the older ones. My old one is baggy in the underarm and sleeves. I was thinking about down sizing unless the new jackets have a slimmer fit.

Responded on

Hey Elvin,

The cut should be about the same. Style has stayed pretty consistent with this jacket but what they have done is made the jacket more breathable.

Great jacket for the right price...

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I used this jacket for the first time last week in a steady light rain while bicycling. The fact that it is lightweight, waterproof, provides bright visibility, zips up tight (but still breathes), packs down small, and is long enough to cover my back end is exactly what I was looking for. I will see how it holds up to a Portland, OR winter soon...

Does the trick

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

I think mine must be from an earlier year because it's bright orange, but other than that I don't see much difference. It keeps me dry and seems to breathe about as well as anything (not great). The pit zips help a ton in that regard, and are a must-have in my book. Not too heavy, packs down small, and zips up nice and tight to keep heavy rain out. The hood fits well and adjusts so you can still see with it cinched down. Pockets are easy to get into, even with a pack on. the only issue- and a small one- is that the zipper has a sort of funky double flap on both sides that closes with Velcro, and so it isn't quite as easy to zip up and down as some other jackets. It does keep the water out, though.

We'll see how it wears... but so far (not even a full season) it's been good.

for comparison, I'm 6'4", 220 lbs, and XL fits great, even with a fleece or something underneath.

Heading for a late season hike in the Beartooth Mtns. I feel good about the jacket, a little worried about the size. I'm about 6'3" 215 and am hoping for a snug fit. Run anywhere between a L and XL ... suggestions?

Since your legs attribute a lot to your height and mass but have nothing to do with how the jacket will fit it would be much more helpful if we could get your chest measurement and sleeve length to determine between two sizes.

If you could get those measurements for us you could either compare against the recommended size chart or give one of our Gearheads a call and they would be happy to help you out.

I'm about your size- wear a 34" inseam pant, 17/36 shirts and 46 long jackets. XL fits me great, with room for a fleece or something underneath. Hope this helps.

Sure does! Thanks for the insight and the additional info.

Can't go wrong

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

All my research for this new jacket of mine pointed to this, and I was more than pleasantly surprised. The price point is right, and more importantly, this jacket breathes really well. This is important for me because Hong Kong is really humid, and without a breathable jacket, it gets clammy really quickly. This jacket does a wonderful job!

Life saver this past week.

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

6 days, 5 nights in the High Uinta's last week in Utah. 50 miles from U Bar ranch (Uinta Drainage) to Henry's Fork Trailhead. Rained every day and night. Wore it almost constantly. It was clammy when only wearing a short sleeve shirt, but when wearing a long sleeve shirt, was very comfortable. Pit zips worked great. Used it with a Backcountry 850file parka for warmth in the evenings. Lightweight, durable, comfortable. Kept me dry all week!!! Tuesday was absolutely wicked all day with the downpours. Thursday hail in the afternoon. so grateful I had this. My youngest had a boys Precip also, and it saved him too.

Life saver this past week.

My friend Russ just finished up a trip into the Wind River Range in Wyoming. His first message when returning was: "Thanks for the line on the coat, Scott. It was great in the rain and on the windy ridges as well." It also include this photo.

Another, proof is in the pudding, that this jacket is a must have for your backcountry arsenal.

Hydrophobic love!

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

This jacket, for the price point and design, is amazing!

Lightweight, not the lightest but pretty light, and stuffable this is my go to. Very mobile and sleek fit, clearly designed for movement in the mountains when the weather is on the fritz.

The jacket includes armpit vents for when the temps are high but the rain keeps a coming.

So many colors to choose from its the right choice for even the pickiest of fashionistas.

I'm going to say it runs true to size, but it does actually run a bit on the larger end of things. I am between a medium and large usually, and i went with the medium and it fits a bit loose but mobile.

Hydrophobic love!

Wonderful Purchase

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

I bought this jacket on a budget and couldn't be happier with the decision. It's cheap but light, packable, breathable, and most importantly keeps me dry. I wear it everywhere!
There's a reason this model has been around forever.

Even For Cycling

Even For Cycling

As I left the Salt Lake Valley floor it was in the 80's and riding up Big Cottonwood Canyon to prepare for the Wasatch Crest trail saw temps drop into the 50's with a strong breeze on the ridge lines. I'm glad that when carrying a pack I always throw my Precip jacket in as it kept me warm and comfortable on this epic ridge line ride and a few slogs through 2-4' snow banks still on the trail.

The Precip is a no brainier at under a 100 bucks you'd be the Goats rear end if you don't include it in your outdoor gear arsenal.

does what its made for

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

this is a great jacket for the price. it does what it was made for which is to keep you dry when it rains. now i gotta admit i havent gotten caught in hard pouring rain but in normal rain it works. the precip is very light, so light my keys make it heavy when placed in pocket. one unique thing that i like is that i never overheat with this jacket. its so breathable and well vented it feels almsot as a shirt. the one thing i dislike is that it has meshed pockets which i understand it to also help with ventilation on top of the pit zips but i feel like my keys or multi tool will one day snag it or cut it. i keep things away from my pockets in order to prevent that. the hood is adjustable and works great with movement. drys fast and best off all it compresses into the left pocket so its can be carried by hand or put away in back pack.

Excellent Summer Jacket

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

I bought the green PreCip jacket a few years and it has held up to weekly abuse and wear-and-tear. I have worn this jacket in all kinds of weather and it never disappoints. After being soaking wet, the jacket can be dried out surprisingly fast by a fire. The underarm zips work great for warm bike rides while the jackets acts as a windbreaker. The jacket can be packed down very small and fits in the top of a pack for easy access on hiking or backpacking trips.

Is this jacket windproof?

Is this jacket windproof?

Responded on

While not 100% windproof (it has to breathe), this jacket will stop most winds.

How does this model compare to the Marmot...

How does this model compare to the Marmot Minimalist? Major differences?

Best Answer Responded on

Blake,

The big difference is material. The Minimalist is of Gore-tex Paclite and Precip is a proprietary material NanoPro and of course the extra chest pocket on the Minimalist. Both are very breathable and I feel the Minimalist will have a little longer life. I've been rock'n the Precip models since their first introduction and love the weight, waterproof, breath-ability and of course the budget price of less that a 100 bucks. I'm hard on jackets going through them in a couple or so years. I've used the Precip from Mt. Rainier attempts to the rainy Pacific Northwest Olympic peninsula, while cycling and an awesome spring shell for Backcountry skiing. It's never failed me and I absolutely never leave it or the Precip Full Zip pants out of my day pack or expedition pack.

Hope you enjoy!

Keeping you Dry with a Happy Wallet

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift
  • Fit: True to size

My brother is down in Austin, Texas,where they've been having a super wet spring. The poor chump was wearing hoodies everyday, being quickly soaked to the bone day after day. Being the wonderful brother that I am, I picked him up the PreCip. It's the ultralight weight, super packable and absolutely waterproof and breathable, best value ever in a rain jacket from Marmot. It keeps him dry, and the $100 retail price point for this kind of performance keeps your wallet happy.
