Great Jacket

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

I've now used this as both a rain jacket and as a windbreaker in the Sierra Nevadas above 11,000'. With a merino wool tshirt and nylon shirt underneath, it made me comfortable hiking in cold breezes. Ultralight hiking means having gear that does double duty. This jacket meets that criteria.

Fantastic Jacket but....

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

I've been using this jacket for the past 3 years, it is a great jacket but i discovered couple of days ago that the coating material inside it is deteriorating and separating from the exterior skin, which is quite bad honestly for a good brand like Marmot.
Have a look at the attached picture, it is self explanatory.
I think there is some improvement to make to this jacket in the future releases to make it really indestructible !
In Conclusion: I will not recommend this Jacket !!!

Marmot is one of the few companies to offer a true lifetime guarantee with the warranty of their jackets. Their customer service department is extremely helpful, and my recommendation to you would be to send them an email with the picture of your jacket and see what they can do. It looks to me like this would be covered under warranty, but then again I do not work for Marmot and it is up to their discretion of what to do in terms of repair or replacement of the jacket. As I said, drop them a line and I am sure they will be able to help you out.

The Precip Jacket, a great windbreaker, a poor rain jacket.

I had had this jacket for over a year now and feel comfortable in saying that this jacket is a fail. It is light and quite inexpensive. It packs well and fits well. It. Locks the wind quite well also. Unfortunately it stopped blocking the rain long ago. After my first backpacking trip, it now quickly absorbs water into where the pack was riding. After maybe 10 wears over six monthes, this jacket is less water resistant than my windstopper pieces. Not a durable jacket at all. Paid less, got less. Would not recommend.

Great versatile jacket-liteweight-great for travel

I love the marmot jacket because it keeps water off you (when you don't have an umbrella), lightweight to pack, very lightweight and doesn't take up much room when packing for travel/backpacking. The only thing that I have had a problem with is the pull strings for the hood just loosen on their own so the you have to tie it awkwardly or hold the strings in windy conditions. That being said, I've taken this jacket all over the world, on land and sea, and it has been great overall.

Just took this out on the north pacific salmon fishing between the rain and sea spray I figured Id be wet, Thanks to this jacket for the most part I stayed very dry and warm

Not waterproof.

Water-resistant in light, rain, sprinkle; not waterproof. Water came through the shoulders after 20-minutes in the rain.

A nice-looking wind-breaker.

I am 6'2". The extra-large fits me fine with room for layering underneath.

Great jacket

Just received the Marmot Precip Jacket today in Cayenne color. For the price, jacket is very lightweight. Nice, large hood and pockets. Cayenne color is brighter orange in person than in the pictures. Still a great color though.

HI.
And what is about difference in waterresistance between Marmot Precip and Patagonia Torrentshell?

Best Answer Responded on

They are very similar in that they are both fully seam sealed lightweight rain shells.

Responded on

Totally agree with Arthur. They are basically the same jacket from different manufactures.

But as I see here are more negative reviews than among Torrentshell's reviews.

Great Looking, but HOT.

Great product. Wore once so far in light rain and worked well. But doesn't breath well and is a bit warm and muggy on the inside. Even with pit zippers open.

Great All-Around Shell Jacket

I have had this jacket now for about 3 years and love it. I accidentally sent it into Marmot for a zipper repair thinking it had broken. Marmot was very kind and responsive and informed me that I had simply not zipped up the zipper when I washed it. Nothing was broken. They returned it promptly. Great customer service. It keeps water out completely, even in heavy rain. The material looks quite wet but the layer under is completely dry. The pocket configuration isn't my favorite but it works. I am 6' and 190 lbs and the large fits well but roomy for layering purposes. The cuffs allow hook-and-loop closure to the degree you wish for proper fit to the inner layers and wrist. Marmot rocks! Great price, great design, great jacket.

great jacket

this jacket is very breathable and durable, it serves as a great windbreaker and rain jacket in hotter conditions and is warm in cooler conditions. The price is very good considering the features of the jacket.

Is this the Marmot product # 5491?

Great for the Money

There's not a whole lot of bad to say about the precip. I purchased mine in 08, since then it's been on every outing I've ever been on. It's done everything from caving to skiing to multiweek treks in New Mexico. Mine is starting to wear through on the cuffs and shoulders, but still keeps me dry. Packs down tiny and works well. The new Precip is even better! Couldn't be any happpier

Wear if for everything in the rain!

I've worn this fly fishing in the rain. Camping in the rain. Hiking in the rain. I wear it to work if it's raining. I carry it to work if it's supposed to rain.

EXTREMELY light weight. Wads up in to a tiny ball. Even fits in my lunch box!

Wear if for everything in the rain!

Excellent until temps top 70

Super light, windproof and packable, and has kept me dry in major rain with and without a pack. Breathable until temperature exceeded 65-70 degrees. Admittedly, I perspire heavily; but jacket was soaked inside once I started sweating with only a t-shirt on underneath. Dried quickly. Recommend at price.
