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.

Too fragile. Waterproof for 2 years.

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

I had owned a North Face Venture from 2009 to 2011, and it had served me well, showing zero signs of wear when I lost it in 2011. Because of glowing reviews of the Marmot Precip, and because the Precip came in a flattering feminine shape (and at that time the Venture did not), I bought a Precip. The Precip was impressively waterproof for the first year, but after that the inside coating of the fabric began to break up. At 3 years old, my $100 Precip has no water-repellent qualities other than those it acquires by means of a smelly aerosol that costs $9 a bottle.

Unanswered Question

Would this jacket be good for running? Does the hood adjust to fit more snugly? (With drawstrings or Velcro?)

What is the center back length of a medium?

Nice and light

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got this in a beautiful shade of green and received many compliments on it. I've worn this in heavy rain while hiking and the zipper vents are a very nice touch in keeping me dry and cool. It's a very crinkly material and prone to bad wrinkles if it's not stuffed or folded neatly. I can't quite seem to fold it neatly into the stuff pocket so I end up folding it into a small rectangle in my pack since I'm not a fan of the wrinkles. I usually hang it up unless it's being packed for other adventures so the wrinkles aren't too bad.

For the price I paid and its ability to keep me dry in sudden downpours, I am very happy with it. The brighter colors are beautiful especially on a dreary rainy day! I'm 5'5" and a small fit nicely with room to spare even with a fleece underneath.

A Splash of Color and Superior Service

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

This product is great! The PreCip keeps me dry even in heavy rain. The only splash you'll feel wearing this, is the bright splash of color - which I get many compliments for. I originally got the electric yellow color but then realized my sister has the same coat. I used the Gearhead chat service to perform an exchange (for the sunset orange) and not only did the associate put in my new order for me, he gave me free 2-day shipping on it and free return shipping. I was so thankful for the high quality service regarding my purchase/exchange. It was hassle free and my orange coat came within a couple days!

Light and bright

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

This jacket is very light weight yet stands up to wind and a bit of chill in the air. I was pleasantly surprised on the ease of use and comfort - I will wear this for more occasions than I originally expected.

Does the job, but wrinkles

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

I ordered this jacket for a backpacking trip in the Adirondacks because I was expecting rain. I appreciated that it was lightweight, would pack into the pocket and would keep me dry. I figured that this would also come in use for around town because I can easily throw it in my purse if it looks like rain.
That being said, the things I like about this jacket are that it fits great and looks cute, with some room to layer underneath. The color (Sea glass) is also very nice. I like that you can adjust the sleeves and hood with Velcro and cinch the elastic waistband to fit. I was not out in all-out downpour, but it deflected rain very well. It also kept the wind out at the exposed summits. It packs easily into the pocket and takes up minimal space and weight, so it worked as intended.
What I don't like is that after having it packed up into the pocket for 2-3 days the jacket is impossibly wrinkled. After a week of hanging the jacket, nothing has changed. It looks terrible and I don't think I would want to wear it out in public now. I am afraid to pack it up inside the pocket again for fear of more wrinkles.
I bought my sister-in-law the Columbia Arcadia and this jacket did not have the same issue, so I will likely exchange unless I can figure out how to get these wrinkles out in the next day or so. Pointers welcome!

Hey there!

Try washing it and hang drying it to see if that does the trick.

Responded on

Try just 3-4 mins or so in the dryer, for the wrinkles, no need to wash but it won't hurt it to either (put a softener sheet in the dryer with it just to freshen it up) that should do the trick. That won't help while you vacationing away from a dryer but it'll help at home!

Absolutely perfect rain jacket

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

This rain jacket repels water very well and the generous hood keeps your head and even glasses dry. I use it for walking or hiking, and even short distance commuter cycling. It folds up easily and doesn't take up much space in a back pack. The bright blue color helps keep me visible on a cloudy day. The two side pockets are generously deep for hands, keys, phone and wallet.

Hi Cher,
There is no added insulation in this jacket to help keep warm- but it is a great rain layer! I would recommend you stick with the Summerset softshell jacket you are looking at, and bring extra layers for when it cools down

Responded on

Kayla is right about this jacket having no added insulation, but you can easily wear a long sleeve or light fleece/base layer underneath to keep warm below 55 degrees.

How true to fit is this? I would normally order a M (5"3' and 135lbs) but I am planning the AT thru hike next year and need mid layers or a fleece to fit underneath it. Would you recommend going up a size or is there enough room for a fleece jacket?

Best Answer Responded on

This runs true to size so I would recommend you stick with a M. There is plenty of room for a baselayer and light-mid weight fleece for layering.

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?

Hey Kara,
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!

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

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!

Girly fit

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

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.
