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.

I purchased this jacket a few years ago and still love it but I want to waterproof it again. What product would you recommend using? Would NIKWAX TX. Direct Wash-In work?
That is exactly what I would suggest you use to snap your jacket back to life.

I measured my sleeve according to the diagram and it measures 26" but the actual length of the jacket sleeve is 31", I am an xs. Will the sleeve length be ok?
The sleeves have velcro tabs on them so that you can tighten them up at your wrist if they are a little too long.
Great rain coat!

I ordered this for the on/off showers that happen over the summer in Colorado. My main form of transportation is a bike, and this has been a great jacket to have while riding from place to place in the rain. So far I've had no issues with water getting through, the jacket keeps everything underneath it fairly dry. It's also pretty light and I love that it has underarm vents as well.
I'm 5"7 and about 128 and I ordered a small, its pretty roomy and it fits my long arms perfectly!

I returned this jacket because I wasn't a fan of the fit. I am normally a size 12 dress size/pants, 5'6" tall, and I got the L and it fit pretty well. This jacket was longer than I was expecting. It almost covers my entire butt. It's got a really girly fit that is wider in the hips and narrower in the waist. I was planning on using this jacket for backpacking, and the fit just looked too weird and formal for me. I returned it and bought the mens version instead. The mens small fits me well. This jacket seems fine, I just really didn't like how it looked on me. Not my style I guess. I'm still giving it 5 stars though because it seems like a great rain jacket.

Does this have a cinch cord to tighten the hood around the face?
The hood is adjustable at the opening and can be cinched down around your face.

Is this the updated 2014 version of the PreCip jacket?
Hello Julia Burlyga,
Thanks for your question.
That is correct. This is indeed the 2014 model.
I hope this helps.
Yes, that helped, thank you!
I have placed my order :)

Does this jacket zip from the bottom as well as from the top? Is it lightweight and packable or heavier? Is it roomy enough to layer under? Thanks!
Hey! This is a great option to layer and it does only offer the one way zip option. It's also a VERY lightweight jacket with a great waterproof tech called NanoPro DWR, that really gives you a great waterproof rating and even greater breathability.
Hope that helps!
