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 and offers 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. When you start getting steamy huffing up a hill, unzip the underarm vents to let cool air in and pent-up heat escape.

Gift for my first time traveling friend.
The Marmot PreCip has been the entry level jacket packet full of robust features for longer than I've been in the Outdoor Industry. There are better jackets...There are ones with more features, but none that pack in pit zips, storm flaps, breathability, durability, storm collar, and light weight, all for under a hundred bucks.
If you are looking for an entry level rain jacket for travel, hiking, backpacking and all around general use, and cost is key, this is the jacket to go to.
Great for windy beaches...

How does this compare to the Patagonia Torrentshell?
what is the difference between the 2015 and 2014 precip models?
The Precip now uses the Marmot NanoPro membrame for better comfort and protection.
Would you recommend this jacket for lightweight hiking
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.
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.
Yep, I think a medium would be just about perfect!
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.
Yes, gemstone is definitely a "purple" rather than blue.
Does the jacket hood fit over a ski helmet?
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?

how warm is this? im looking for a good windbreaking, water resistant jacket for september in peru where the temperatures can vary high 60s in the day to high 30s/low40s in the evening
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
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?
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 purchased this jacket a few years ago and still love it but I want to waterproof it again. What product would you recommend using? Would NIKWAX TX. Direct Wash-In work?
That is exactly what I would suggest you use to snap your jacket back to life.
I measured my sleeve according to the...
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?
The sleeves have velcro tabs on them so that you can tighten them up at your wrist if they are a little too long.

Does this have a cinch cord to tighten the hood around the face?
The hood is adjustable at the opening and can be cinched down around your face.

Is this the updated 2014 version of the PreCip jacket?
Hello Julia Burlyga,
Thanks for your question.
That is correct. This is indeed the 2014 model.
I hope this helps.
Yes, that helped, thank you!
I have placed my order :)
Does this jacket zip from the bottom as...
Does this jacket zip from the bottom as well as from the top? Is it lightweight and packable or heavier? Is it roomy enough to layer under? Thanks!
Hey! This is a great option to layer and it does only offer the one way zip option. It's also a VERY lightweight jacket with a great waterproof tech called NanoPro DWR, that really gives you a great waterproof rating and even greater breathability.
Hope that helps!
