Comparing it to my prior Precip Jacket, the sleeves are cut too small. Only a very thin insulating layer can be worn without significant compression, unlike my previous Precip. Good for summer use.

I'm 6'1 and 195, slimmish build. Ordered a large per the sizing chart, and found it was too small to layer with even a light weight fleece jacket. I tend to like my clothes a little roomy, and large felt small to me even with only a T-shirt on. The sleeves were a good length, though. Will be using soon for a trip to the tropics, and want to be sure I've also got enough room for decent air circulation. I returned it and ordered an XL.

Solid affordable rain jacket
Backcountry sent me this jacket so I could test it in the field. I am an outdoor education student at Colorado Mountain College in Steamboat Springs, CO. I initially used this jacket early in the spring for a split boarding mission on a somewhat warm spring day. What I realized was that this jacket does not break wind. When the temps dropped in the late afternoon I had to layer up. Now that it is getting warm in late June, this jacket is awesome for keeping cool in the warm colorado rain because it has side vents. In terms of function, this jacket is great because it has two huge inner pockets for storage. While it is not an ultra light rain jacket like the Patagonia rain jacket I spent $250 on (does break wind) but only has a single tiny chest pocket... the marmot precip still packs down to a reasonable size for anyone other than an ultralight elitist trying to shed a few ounces of base weight from their pack. The design inside the jacket is super cool. I went with the blue color and love it. For $100 this jacket is burly and will last for years.

Solid Rain Jacket
This is the second PreCip I’ve owned and it doesn’t disappoint. Fits true to size and with my 50” chest the XXL works well. Hood packs away nicely into a collar so great for a light wind shell. When raining it keeps me dry and the pit zips keep me cool. Love the Velcro cuff adjustments. Great for traveling as it packs small. Great versatile jacket.

Ahhh, the Marmot Preclip. I had been researching this jacket a while back when I needed a rain jacket. Fortunately, I was given this product from Backcountry to review, though this review is my personal opinion about this jacket and nothing else. When I was originally looking for a rain jacket, the Marmot Preclip Eco Jacket was at the top of my list due to its high ratings (for the price) across many review sites, such as Outdoor Gear Lab. Here is a quick rundown of pros and cons that I think will help you decide if it is right for you: Pros: - It is light - Seems fairly durable - Fits a bit loose, which could be suitable for people who need more room to move around or those who are a bit heavier than I am (I am 6 foot and 170lbs, fairly lengthy, and chose a Large, which was perfect for me) - I have long arms and the length of the arms fit perfect for me at this size (see photos). Good for biking in the rain given the nice arm length it has. - Not too expensive - Good breathability Cons: - It has an old school feel to it in terms of fit, where it is a bit baggier and the functions of it are pretty classic (such as a velcro flap over the front zipper and a roll up hood) - It does not come with a packing pouch like others I have seen - I wish it had more reflective options - Kind of basic overall, but hey, that is not necessarily a bad thing for a rain jacket Overall, I think the Marmot Preclip Eco is a solid choice for anyone needing a quick rain jacket without breaking the bank. I think it is solid for someone looking for a classic rain jacket for an acceptable price. Thought I have not used it in any crazy rain storms, I am sure it will hold up very well and last quite some time.

A Great Deal!
This Marmot PreCip jacket was given to me by Backcountry to review. However, the following review contains thoughts and opinions that are entirely my own. Before continuing I would like to include Marmot’s description of the product in order to better compare my thoughts with Marmot’s intended use of the jacket. • NanoPro fabric is 43% more breathable than the previous PreCip technology, keeping you drier and more comfortable • The jacket is lightweight, durable and compressible; 100% taped seams help seal out the elements • DryTouch finish next to the skin reduces condensation and that sticky, clammy feeling • Pit zips let you release excess heat build-up quickly and circulate fresh air when you're hiking hard • Hood design with peripheral cord adjustment accommodates full visibility • Stormflap over front zipper secures with hook-and-loop closures; DriClime® chin guard wicks away moisture and is soft against skin • Zippered hand pockets allow easy access even with a pack on; one pocket serves as a stuff sack • Drawcord hem; hook-and-loop cuff adjustments • Marmot PreCip Rain Jacket, with Angel-Wing Movement™, allows full range of arm motion and prevents jacket from riding up when arms are raised Fit: Overall, I would say the Marmot PreCip jacket has a standard, true to size fit. I am 6’0 and 170 pounds and tested the large. It wasn’t overly boxy but was also definitely not a slim fit. It was roomy enough to add a mid layer underneath but I was also able to wear it with just a t-shirt underneath during a warm but rainy day and never felt that it was extremely baggy. I was surprised to discover that the hood did indeed fit over a helmet despite the jacket not being designed around climbing specific applications. However, it was slightly on the snug side. It certainly wouldn’t be confidence inspiring to climb with the hood over a helmet. Although, in a pinch, it wouldn’t be too frustrating to belay with it up. Features: First up is breathability. Although Marmot does describe their NanoPro fabric as 43% more breathable than previous models, I would be hesitant to put this in the category of jackets that are highly breathable during high output activities like ski touring or running (tested activities.) However, for less than $70 it is quite a good value if you’re on a budget. I also tested this jacket running in a rainstorm from around an hour. Marmot describes the PreCip jacket as featuring the Angel-Wing Movement™. While I was pleased with the range of motion while wearing the jacket and skinning at various angles, I feel this is simply a result of the slightly boxy fit rather than anything specific in the design and construction. Regardless of the reason why, the jacket has a great range of motion and should accommodate any movement short of a game of Twister. Price: This is one of the best aspects of the PreCip jacket. In a nutshell, you get a lot of bang for your buck. Enough said. Weight: At 13 ounces this is a nice in-between layer when regarding weight. It’s no ultralight jacket but you also won’t feel like it’s slowing you down on those long days in the mountains. Again, for the price, it is quite a sweet deal. Best Uses: This jacket is best suited from hiking and other related activities where rain or winds may be encountered such as camping, fishing, boating or bike riding. I would be hesitant to say this jacket would excel in an extreme winter environment but I am confident it would get the job done. It doesn’t look too as an every day jacket either! Overall: I would call this layer a general-purpose waterproof and breathable shell. Pros • Great breathability and ventilation for the price • Pit zips were not overly large • Good price • Lots of colors to choose from Cons • No chest pocket • Mouth pad wasn’t the most comfortable when fully zipped • Average weight

Great fit, vents well, versatile
Marmot PreCip Eco Jacket Review. Size Medium. Color Surf I was given a PriCip Eco Jacket, but this review is my own opinion. IÃ¢ÂÂve had it for about a month so far, and itÃ¢ÂÂs been a great addition for late winter early spring here in the VA mountains. The medium fits perfectly even with a fleece or hoody underneath for warmth on colder days. For comparison, I typically wear a medium in Patagonia and the fit here is spot on. I have used it for a few hikes and just kicking around on the backyard trails with the family. Freedom of movement is great, ventilation is a plus, and it has kept me dry so far. Jacket seems well made, and I expect it to hold up. Light and easy to throw in the pack and forget about unless the wind kicks up or the rain sets in. For the price and quality, you can't go wrong.

Great Fit, Wear Camping then to Work
I was given a PriCip Eco Jacket, but this review is my own opinion. EDIT: After spending more time with this jacket I can say I am pretty disappointed with the new "ECO" DWR treatment. I dont have the old jacket to reference but this jacket will 'wet-out' even in the lightest rain. This doesn't mean it leaks through but it stops shedding water and stops breathing. I would consider $100 too expensive for a jacket that doesn't breathe. The Precip Eco has a bit of a futuristic name but the jacket itself could not be more classic. It fits well and holds up to the modest amount of abuse I have been able to put it through in the past few weeks. The first thing I noticed was the adjustable hood which changes with a Velcro in the back. Hood size can be tricky to get right on other rain jackets. My Northface jacket hood is too big and causes me to constantly adjust between drips of water in my face or not being able to see where I'm going. The Marmot wins in that regard. Another nice feature is side pockets. They are massive and zip up smoothly so quick access to key items in the rain is easy. The jacket has lots of small but nice touches like soft felt at the top of the zipper to reduce neck rubbing. It's obvious that this was tested and tweaked to maximize utility. The weight puts this squarely in the 'do-it-all' category. Not quite light enough for the most hardcore backpackers but plenty good enough for a weekend warrior or casual adventurer. I got the burgundy/ Maroon color and would highly recommend it. I whole weekend rock climbing in the Kentucky back country, covered in dirt and dust and then wore it to work the next day. The color does a nice job of disguising how dirty it is! Overall, the construction feels durable but I haven't been able to abuse it long term yet so I will try to update this review in the future. Disclaimer: I was given this jacket to review but my opinions are my own.

Does this jacket have two way zipper that unzips from the bottom up?
April 1, 2019
Hey, unfortunately this does not have a two way zipper on it, only a single zipper!
