Get It Before Labor Day Weekend—Order With Free 2-Day*by 5pm MT 9/2/15

Description

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
  • Underarm zipper vents
  • Adjustable hood rolls into collar
  • Packs down into hand pocket
  • Adjustable hook-and-loop cuffs and elastic drawcord hem
  • Zippered hand pockets

Here's what others have to say...

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

Responded on

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

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.

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

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!

    Size Purchased: Small

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

Responded on

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.

Responded on

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.

Responded on

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

Great Jacket!

    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.

Responded on

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.

Responded on

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.

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.

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!
