Here's what others have to say...

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.

Responded on

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!

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?

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!

Responded on

Obviously this too late for yourDisplayName, but for anyone who comes later, I am 6'2, 260, 40 inch waist and my XXL fits well.

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.

Responded on

Did you contact Marmot about this? If not you probably should before leaving a negative review about a jacket you are unsure of being the real deal or not.

Coming back for more!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

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?

Best Answer Responded on

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.

Responded on

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.

Responded on

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!

Responded on

Thanks, Nicholas F. Just as you did your research, that's what I'm doing now. Everyone wants to stay dry in the rain. I also want to stay dry on hot days when I need to protect myself from strong sun and mosquitoes - as in White Mountain black flies, or rural Philippines. Now I know I "Can't go wrong"!

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.
