Initial impressions...

OK. Greetings fellow outdoor enthusiasts and forest freaks. On a whim I added the PreCip jacket and pants to my quiver. I am a lightweight hiker/backpacker and avid bicyclist. Unboxed them yesterday and rode in the gear in a thick humid fog/mist this morning in Colorado (unusual). Gear worked great. Kept me dry, breathed correctly and did not make me a puddle inside the gear.
Some impressions:
The jacket fits perfect and is true to size. Not too small and not baggy, yet has room for 1-3 layers underneath
The hood is well thought out and tucks away under the collar as an option. There are vent zips under the arm. There are no mesh or screens...just open air.
Wrists have adjustable velcro cuffs which work great.
Pockets are big and zip. There is no inside pocket. There is a tighting string/elastic for the hood and around the bottom for adjustment.
The jacket is light and the color options are not painful.
Overall, a well thought out jacket.
I have scrunched this thing up and I think if needed, I could fit it in the equivalent of a quart size ziplock.

Great Value Rain Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 6' 0"
    Weight: 185 lbs
    Size Purchased: XL

I have had mine a few years now and love it. Also bought each of our kids one too. They pack up reasonably small. They keep the rain and wind out. I am usually a L but bought mine in XL just so I can layer underneath when it's cold, but I would say they are true to size.

Lightweight rain jacket which I use as a travel shell. Easy to stuff into my travel pack and looks great as well. Can't go wrong with this one!

So Good I Bought it Twice

    Size Purchased: Medium

I wore one of these for years and it was always dependable in pouring rain. I let a friend borrow it, and you know the rest... I ordered a replacement. I got it just in time for a month where we received record rain since records have been kept. It has been as good as the one I lost. Yesterday, alone, we received over 5" of rain in less than 14 hours. A buddy had a tree fall on his house and I was out helping him. I never got wet. I also use this on fly fishing days where I'm in the river and it's raining. Great jacket with a nice fit. I'm 5'8" and have wide shoulders - not a body builder, but just a tad too big for many garments to fit right in the neck/shoulder area. This zips up without a problem. I like the velcro tabs on the cuffs, they are easy to use and give a secure fit. Can't beat it for the price.

Quality jacket

This jacket is a great little rain coat. It is very light and I like that it breathes pretty well! It fits a little loose I should have sized down but overall a good fit. It is nice and easy to climb in and nice and packable and light weight, I use it as a back up or a just in case and it has been solid so far!

You can't ask for more rain jacket, for the $$$. Great features: adjustable hood at neck and for helmet, hip pockets, pit zips, waist gaiter, and I put it to the test in CO when it rained, sleeted, and snowed in early May. Windproof, waterproof, bombproof. Try it, you'll like it.

New Fav!

I was wanting a lightweight, less expensive jacket for summer hikes, walking the dog, or trail running and decided to go for a non Gore option. After seeing Marmot demo the NanoPro membrane I decided to check this out. And I am very glad I did. This thing is amazing. Put this on the minute I unwrapped it and stepped into the storm outside my house. Water instantly beaded and fell off leaving me nice and dry.
The breathability has blown me away as well. Going for a short run in a drizzle usually gets me pretty hot and humid with a shell on but I felt like I could feel the moisture rushing to escape. Plus, a light rain jacket with pit zips is great. My last North Face jacket was lacking those and I can say I will demand my shells to have them from now on. Hood fits great and there is room for a light fleece underneath the jacket should things get chilly. Ordered the Yellow option and color is spot on. Haven't needed the full range of movement the Angel Wing allows for yet, but it is awesome knowing I can swing my arms around in any direction without discomfort or the jacket shifting around in weird ways. Who knows when I'll need to frantically wave my arms at people but it's good to know that I can.
I wish this could stow into it's pocket or had a removable hood, but those cons are quickly forgotten while wearing this. Need a new rain jacket? Grab this one!

I've worn this jacket in some crazy rain lately and it has kept me dry. Super lightweight makes it perfect to keep in your pack without weighing you down or taking up a lot of space. Armpit vents, zip pockets with see through mesh on the inside, and added velcro along zipper flaps to keep closed make this jacket even better! Couldn't be happier!

This thing keeps the rain out, is lightweight, packable and looks pretty stylish. I wear it hiking, backpacking and around town when it's raining. I have been stuck high up in mountains during absolutely downpours and this thing keeps you dry underneath. You will be warm if you wear it in 70+ degree weather while doing any sort of physical activity but it does have pit zips to help with breathability. Overall this jacket is awesome and I would recommend it anybody.

I love this rain jacket. Lightweight, breathes well, keeps the rain out. Very packable as well.

Looking for a super lightweight rain jacket i can wear in the summers in the south. Is this a good option as I have many other jackets for colder days.

This is the perfect jacket for you! It's a great price with unmatched waterproof and breathability features.

I have not taken this jacket off yet.. I swear I ordered it early March and have found myself wearing it every day rain or shine. If it's a little colder outside throw on a long sleve t and you're fine. It is a great windbreaker as well as rain coat and it lets you really feel the temperature outside. Super stowable, super good looking, super comfy.

My son is going to college in Pittsburgh. We just bought the Patagonia Down Sweater jacket for the winter, but was curios about a good rain jacket for layering? We are from Fl and barely own a coat! I would sincerely appreciate any help you could lend as the climate and weather is going to be a big adjustment!

Responded on

The Precip is a fantastic option for an affordable and durable jacket for wet weather. This would also fit over the down sweater great on wet days (which there are plenty in Pitt). A nice fleece under the Precip would be good in the spring/fall as well. If you are interested in a Gore option, the Minimalist is a great option as well. Good luck!

Awesome!

Running or hiking ... it's perfect for the rainy weather. Great jacket. Great quality. Lightweight and perfect for packing in a ruck. True to size.

Very versatile, fantastic jacket.

I've bought this model last spring when my old Marmot PreCip jacket needed replaced (after 4 years of heavy use camping, hiking, use on campus, etc... and it still worked better than the rain jacket my friend bought from Wal-Mart).

It is a great jacket. I use it as a rain jacket in the spring and summer, for which it works great. It is light, breathable, not too hot, and keeps you nice and dry. I also use it as an outer shell in fall and for a lot of winter, with a thick layer/couple layers underneath for warmth and the jacket for wind/wet protection. (This is why I would recommend getting a size that has some space for layering.)

Overall, highly comfortable, highly effective at keeping you dry, lasts a long time, lightweight, and looks good. I recommend this jacket to a lot of people that are looking for a great rain jacket for all types of activities.

Always in my pack

I bought one of these while living in Washington State. I absolutely loved it. It worked in the summer on the ocean coast, in the spring, and in the winter as a shell alternative. It's light weight, it packs to a good size (not the best, not the worst). For the price I don't really have alot of complaints.

It fits a Black Diamond Half Dome Helmet. It does run large (for me anyways). I bought it a size up to layer under but still works great. I wore it recently this winter as a wind breaker during some hikes and it worked awesome

Rain, Rain, Go Away

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

I gave this to my brother who lives in Portland and is constantly getting rained on when he is out mountain biking. When I asked him about it he says that in light rains or in downpours, he hasn't had any issue of the jacket leaking at all. As he put it, you can be in a Noah's Ark style downpour and never have to worry about keeping dry! With the stowable hood, it is good to use as a windbreaker or rain jacket and can be used in many different circumstances. Coming in at only 11 oz and around 100 dollars, you won't find a much better rain shell in this price range!

Great Value

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

This jacket was a great purchase and is clearly made of quality materials. It fits well and I fully expect it to last for a long time. The waterproofing is excellent and the jacket stays cool with the help of the armpit zippers and mesh pockets.

However there are a few minor issues. During most rain storms the water has a tendency to run down the front of the jacket and onto my pants. I don't know if this jacket is particularly worse than others in this area, but this is a real annoyance. I would reccomend pairing these with rain pants.

Another odd annoyance is the velcro that holds the seam closed has a tendency to grab onto to clothing. Not a big problem at all, but a slight annoyance.

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?
