Lindsay M.wrote a review of Marmot PreCip Jacket - Women's on September 5, 2014
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!
