Great Marmot rain jacket
This lightweight jacket is simply awesome. It takes not space is your luggage and will keep you dry on light to mid rain storms --probably not the one for spending longer time under lots of rain though.
I have the small and still was able to layer it down heavily (as you can see in the pic :) ). I can tell I was use this a lot and seems to last forever!!
I wore this jacket to a rain delayed baseball game and got completely soaked-it was useless for keeping dry.
About a week after that, I wore it out to the car in a moderate rain and it leaked again. I returned it. I would recommend it as a wind breaker only.
Purchased before going to Alaska. Perfect weight and perfect in the rain!
Lightweight, great fit
I love everything about this rain jacket. It's lightweight and easily packable. The armpit zips are a huge plus and make the jacket very versatile. I also like the deep pockets and the size of the hood is nice.
Marmot also carries an amazing warranty program. What's not to like!!
I recommend this jacket to all the ladies :)
Love this jacket
I would not wear this in a downpour but it is the perfect jacket for light, steady, rain that we get a lot of here in Alaska and I stay dry and warm! I have been wearing it since late spring and now well into summer for daily walks with my dog, hiking, boating, and it makes a great windbreaker as well! Rolls up nicely for storing in my backpack, just shake it out, put it on and it still looks good! Get this and you won't be sorry!
the rain jacket i've been looking for
so after months of struggling with umbrellas in the wind and trying on numerous rain coats, trenches, and hooded jackets, I finally decided that I should go with a brand that I trust.
I was between a North Face and a Marmot, and ultimately went with the Marmot after I spoke with some of my more outdoorsy friends. the selling point? the fact that the Marmot was more lightweight and breathable than the North Face. I was looking for a rain jacket that I could wear in humidity and yet would be strong enough to withstand the colder winds of the early spring. also, because I wanted something that could go over jeans and a tee shirt but also look put-together enough to go over work clothes, I felt like a Marmot was the way to go (I feel like the branding is slightly more subtle, at least in the black color...)
I found the perfect fit with the PreCip! it fits true to size and is extremely packable - I stick it into my school bag on overcast days, just in case, and it doesn't take up any room. I am 5'11 so length is always a concern when I go for anything shorter than a trench - but I found the PreCip to hit me right around my hip, giving me enough coverage with no bulk.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a versatile and comfortable rain jacket!
This is a jacket, used primarily to walk my dog on rainy mornings and while at the marina walking down the dock. The color is amazing and the material is light but yet warm if the weather is a little cool. I am going to order a blue one for my husband.

What is the lining in this. Does it stick to you when it's raining? Do you feel cold and clammy in it during a rainstorm?
It doesn't really have a lining but the material does not feel like the old nylon stick to your skin materials. The pit-zips are a nice feature if you do start feeling clammy you can open them slightly to vent. As for being cold, this is only a shell and you will want to wear something under it during cold rainstorms.
love it.....LOVE IT. Keeps the rain off, the wind down. Hood does not fly off.
Great jacket, but the sizes run large. I purchased a small, and it swallows me. I kept the small thinking it would be good to use over my Marmot down or another jacket, but I should've exchanged it.
great gift for hiking girlfriends
I bought this for my girlfriend for her birthday. She loves it. It is lightweight and the fit is perfect. I bought her a large and a little big so that she could layer under it. She is a softball coach and an avid hiker, so she will get lots of use out of it. Wearing it so far, she hasn't complained about it being feeling steamy or sweaty and the weather has been warm lately here in the North Georgia Mountains. She likes that she is able to roll the hood up easily and not have it flapping around behind her if its not raining. By far, the best value on the market. After seeing hers, I am thinking about buying one for myself. I need a good lightweight rain jacket for summer storms on the trails. Big time recommend. (it even stuffs down into its own sack, but she hasn't done that yet)

It has a drawcord at the hem.

does this jacket have a flannel type of lining?
No, it is just a shell. Check out the Wm's Streamline Jacket if you're looking for a lined Precip with a bit of warmth.
Great jacket, beautiful color
I've been a fan of the Marmot PreCip Jacket and was especially pleased to find it in such a beautiful color - everglade.
The one thing that keeps me coming back to the Marmot PreCip jacket over the comparable North Face Resolve jacket is the sleeve length. I feel like the sleeves on the PreCip jacket are just a tad longer than on the Resolve, which makes a huge difference for me.
Great basic rain jacket that holds up well in most rain short of a downpour, has room to layer, and is reasonably priced.
I used this jacket as my all rain and shell while trekking in nepal and if never let me down. I have a long torso and it fit a little short on me but it held up well over heavy wear for the 4 months there, i don't know what I would have done with out it!
Rain goes right through this jacket and quickly! Don't buy it!
Good but not great for super wet
This jacket is pretty good. It does great in some lighter rain storms, but isn't great for prolonged times in the weather. I've had it for a while and used it quite a bit and most of the time it's good, but a little moisture seeps through if you're out in the weather for too long. But for a light weight, pretty cheap jacket, it gets the job done.
what a deal !!!!! love the color !!! everglade (matches my Miami dolphins) many compliments !!! I want to wear it everyday rain or not!! perfect fit and the longer back comes over my rear to keep it dry !! lol They seem to come a little larger which is perfect also. Can wear a big sweater if needed !! thank you backcountry !!!
what color is the jacket that's shown on...
what color is the jacket that's shown on this page? I don't see it listed as a choice
The pink one? Good question. I'm going to guess it's a colour that's no longer available, since there isn't a colour that's light pink on the Marmot website either. It might be the Rose Red, but that looks darker to me.
Sorry...that wasn't much help, was it?
