Don't get drenched or let off a stench.

Protect yourself from precipitation while releasing your perspiration in the breathable, waterproof Marmot Women's PreCip Jacket. The PreCip is 43% more breathable than last year, while offering solid 10K-rated waterproof protection. Throw on this comfortable shell when heading out on the trail in wet weather, and its microporous NanoPro membrane with microscopic, densely-packed pores and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish will go to work keeping rain drops out while letting perspiration through. The DriClime mesh chin guard prevents moisture buildup from your warm, moist breath and dripping sweat—moving it quickly away from your skin and drying quickly. Fully taped seams ensure rain doesn't sneak through the cracks, and you can batten down against the elements by pulling in the hood, hem, and cuffs. For additional ventilation if you start getting steamy huffing up a hill, unzip the underarm vents.

If the weather clears up, roll up the hood and stuff it in the collar to keep it out of the way of your backpack. Or stuff the whole jacket into one of the zippered hand pockets that double as stuff sacks, and pop it in your backpack. It weighs a mere 11.4 ounces, so you'll hardly notice it's there.

  • 10K NanoPro waterproof membrane with excellent breathability (17K)
  • NanoPro eco-friendly DWR finish
  • Durable nylon ripstop face fabric
  • DriClime moisture-managing mesh chin guard
  • Regular fit with Angel-Wing construction for free movement

Great Rain Jacket

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 5'4"
    Weight: 128 lbs
    Size Purchased: Small

I wanted a packable rain jacket that kept me dry, so I went for this one and am so glad I did!

It rained for 2 1/2 days on me in Yosemite and not once did I get soaked through. The rain just rolled off! I've also used it on those random rainy days we get in LA and stayed dry the whole time!

I also love that it has armpit zips so you can get some ventilation! The hood also packs into the collar which is cool for when you don't need it. I also like that the sleeves have a velcro adjustment for your wrist.

I got the Cherry Tomato color and absolutely love it! It's super bright :)

Great, flattering fit for regular city use and served me well in the backcountry. Packed up very small and was perfect for a summer backpacking trip.


Best Gift

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

I think everyone should own (at least one) lightweight packable rain shell. I bought this one for one of my best friends and she was ecstatic. The PreCip is a classic. Very comparable with my Patagonia Torrentshell.

what is the difference between the 2015 and 2014 precip models?

Hey Jon!

The Precip now uses the Marmot NanoPro membrame for better comfort and protection.




Should be called a "Wet Coat"

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 5'8"
    Weight: 130 lbs
    Size Purchased: medium

I bought this rain coat to use for my job. Perhaps I demanded more of it than I should of... I wore it on an 8 day backpacking trip circumnavigating Broken Top in the Oregon Cascades. It precipitated heavily every single day. And every single day the jacket would wet out in 15 minutes or so. I also tried sliding around in the snow with the jacket on and of course it didn't keep me dry (though I didn't expect it to). For a rain coat, spend the extra money and get something that will actually keep you dry. It's definitely not something to slide around in the snow in and I admit that, but it is also not a rain coat as advertised.


OK, but not as good as my old one.

  • Gender:Female
  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 5'9"
    Size Purchased: XL

I miss the elastic at the cuffs. Also, shipping is not free to Alaska.

My PreCip from 2002 just bit the dust this year. Those elastics cuffs were so great for keeping water/dampness out. It always kept me dry, too. Your mention of not having the cuffs combined with the post after yours of the jacket soaking through in 15 minutes is a disappointment for this new model.


Don't wash

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I bought this jacket in 2014 and wore it almost daily while camping/hiking for 2 months in August-October 2014. I washed it in strict accordance with the instructions, but it completely lost it's water repellency so it is now completely unusable. The response from Marmot was to use Nikwax. I am disappointed that the jacket lost it's water repellency after one washing according to directions and I have to buy a product to restore it's use.


So Comfy!

  • Fit:True to size

This jacket fits perfectly and is cut in all the right ways! Thanks to Backcountry for getting it to me super fast so I can enjoy it on the RMNP trails in a few weeks. I just wish I'd known about this sooner as I live in Florida and we get rainfall almost every single month! It will be a staple in my wardrobe from now on. Thanks Backcountry and thanks Marmot for making such a great piece of outdoor clothing. Happy trailing!


City to trail staple

    Size Purchased: Small

This is my second Precip. The first I had for years before donating it to my sister. I heard it was recently redesigned and I love it even more. Great light-weight, no frills rain coat that works will in the city or backpacking in the mountains. Thin shell, hood stays on your head, breathable material. The cut is fitted, and the small is a close fit for my frame. If you are my size and want a little room for layering go with a medium. Easy to stuff in your purse or day pack. Highly recommended for the price and Marmot quality. I bought the Gem green and love the color - teal/turquoise.

Would you recommend this jacket for lightweight hiking

I got this for my girlfriend last summer, she doesn't hike in Utah without it. It fits in her small daypack and she put it on for rain, or to add a little warmth when the wind picks up.

I just used this jacket to run R2R2R in the Grand Canyon. It was snowing when we started. The snow turned to rain for most of the day. It kept me dry, yet was still very breathable. Perfect jacket. I highly recommend it.

I'm 5'5", 145. Would a medium fit me nicely, yet still have room to layer my Nano Puff underneath? I was swimming in the Torrentshell medium.

Yep, I think a medium would be just about perfect!


Great Jacket!

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size
  • Height: 5'10"
    Weight: 135 lbs
    Size Purchased: Medium

This is a great jacket for the money! It packs up small, does not weigh a ton and keeps you dry. The jacket can be a tad warm when it is in the summer, but for spring/fall or worn as the outer shell in Winter is great.

My wife has had this jacket for several years now and it is still going strong. It has left us with no need to buy another one. This is a great buy especially when you can find it on sale!

Did anybody else get the gemstone color and think it looked way more purple in real life than on the site? The gemstone is PURPLE. It looked much more blueish with a bit of purple on the site.

Yes, gemstone is definitely a "purple" rather than blue.


Nice thin shell for those warmer days

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

Great shell for the warmer winter days. Im 5'6 Ib105 got it in xs and it is perfect when you dont want to run around in something bulky. It is helmet comparable as well as pull cords. over all a pretty basic jacket that is very light weight


Still not The One for a tall-ish girl

  • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it

I'm 5'10" and have been looking for a light rain jacket to take with me on the trail and on rainy days that I bike to work. Finding a jacket with long sleeves has been a challenge (it's been 2 years, so *FRUSTRATING* is more honest), but after reading several reviews on Backcountry and other sites I thought PreCip might be The One.

The Medium sleeves hit just short of my wrists, which would be barely passable except I'm looking for a jacket that can keep me dry while I and my arms are in motion. With my elbow bent, the cuff is several inches from reaching my wrist.

I also found the shape a bit boxy, but the extra room would accommodate a few extra layers nicely.

I ordered the Mandarin for high visibility. It's slightly more reddish and doesn't seem as bright in person as the photo looks online.

This jacket would probably get more stars for quality if I were able to wear it, but it's useless to me. It's about time outdoor and sportswear brands start offering clothes in Tall sizes.

Have you tried this jacket? I've been contemplating buying it and it seems like the reviews say it runs large, so maybe a medium will have the longer sleeves you need!

I also have the Houdini by Patagonia and I find the sleeves way too long(probably perfect for you!). So maybe Patagonia might have a nice rain jacket with long sleeves.

Unanswered Question

Does the jacket hood fit over a ski helmet?


My favorite raincoat!

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

I have worn mine for about 3 years with heavy Spring and Fall use and occ. summer use. I love the pit zips which are great for "chang of life "ladies. I tell everyone that I won't buy raingear without the pit zips. It has held up extremely well. I wash once a year with the Nikwax special Waterproofing treatment for breathable gear sold on this site. It endures heavy use because I use it on my only transportation (scooter) in Bermuda where we get quick downpours. and you rely on your rain gear. It seriously takes beating being crumpled and stored in my bike. The jacket is compact and handy, very lightweight.. I highly recommend this quality product from Marmot.(I store my rain pants in the jacket pocket so I will always have them handy). Backcountry says the new one is improved, but I don't see how they can improve on perfection. It runs true to size. I'm size 12-14 ,5'7" 180 lb. and bought a large.
