PreCip Eco Jacket
For quick-stowing waterproof protection that won't bog you down on the trail, reach for the highly breathable performance of the Marmot PreCip Eco Jacket. 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.

- Breathable membrane keeps you dry and comfortable on the move
- Underarm zips let you vent out excess body heat on fast hikes

Runs small, not waterproof
I’m a medium across the board, including a Marmot jacket I’ve had for 6 years. This was tiny! Could barely zip, too short in torso and arms. Also, it’s more like water resistant than water proof. It would not stand up to more than 10 minutes in the rain. I own a fine gardening company and have tried a few rain coats. Had to return.

Good windbreaker, not great rain jacket.
I got this jacket this past fall to use hiking and camping in a variety of places/conditions (CO mtns, North GA and NC mtns, general day to day life) and chose this one because it was affordable and lightweight (both still true!) When I used i hiking in CO it was pretty dry, so it functioned more as a windbreaker and was great! I got the orange, and it looked amazing in pictures and packed very well into my day pack when I wasn't using it. I used it throughout the fall and early winter running just day to day going to work/running errands, nothing major, but it held decently in short exposure., However, this past weekend I used it backpacking in North Carolina in freezing rain for a night, and it didn't hold up. The jacket was soaking wet within a few hours and my brother was shocked at how wet it actually was. Overnight, it actually froze stiff.... The conditions were pretty brutal, but not the time you want a rain jacket to fail. I'd say for wind, light rain, or popping in and out of dry places the jacket is effective for its price, but for extended periods outside, this doesn't make the cut. Size-wise the medium fit me very well, but it is definitely a slimmer, longer cut made for specifically for a woman.

I am really pleased with my purchase of the PreCip Eco rain jacket so far. I ordered a size large so that I could wear it into winter with thicker sweaters underneath. I am 5'3", around 150 lbs with an athletic build and an ample chest. The jacket fits me really well. It's a little loose which is what I wanted! The sleeves are long but that's pretty typical for me at 5'3" . I got this jacket for biking primarily. I struggle with keeping the rain out while staying dry underneath even when I am sweating! I wore it biking quite fast through town in the rain and it definitely kept the rain out. I had the pit-zips halfway down and was a little clammy underneath but it is still quite breathable compared to what I had before. I love that it has a collar and a hood, it makes it feel a little more chic! My only complaint so far is that the fabric is a little noisy! I love the yellow color so that I can easily be seen on my bike!

Am I the only one who finds this jacket a full size too small? I ordered a L to be able to layer for winter, and it's snug with a light sweatshirt. It's actually tighter than my Patagonia M. I've had a Marmot jacket in women's L before and could layer everything I've got under it, so I'm baffled. Anyway, have to return it and won't try another one of these.

New Favorite Rain Jacket
This jacket is very lightweight and packs down very easily. I purchased a size up in order to layer underneath. Breathable for a rain jacket and I love that this jacket has vents on each side.

Great lightweight rain jacket
I was given this product from Backcounty, but this review is my personal opinion. The Marmot Precip Eco Jacket is my new go to rain jacket. I love how lightweight and breathable it is. It also doesn't make a ton of noise like most rain jackets! The size fits true and has a nice fitted shape. I am 5'7'' and normally wear a 6/8 and the medium fits perfectly, with still room for a couple of light layers underneath. I have used this jacket for everyday wear over my work clothes,bc unfortunately it hasn't stopped raining where I live in 6 months! I have also used it for hiking in the mountains and i love all the pockets and the fitted hood. It keeps you dry and provides a nice outer layer for warmth. This jacket definitely takes the rain and still looks good. Would definitely recommend the Marmot Precip Eco Jacket for rugged mountain usage and everyday wear.

This jacket is awesome for the price. My sister has worn it on rainy hikes and says it does the job. She is 5'4", 120 pounds, and the small fits perfect. One thing she would change is the pocket size. They are rather small, but it isn't that big of a deal since she carries a backpack.

Good Option for Budget Rain Jacket
First, I was given this product from Backcountry, but this review Is my personal opinion. I received the Marmot Precip Eco in the Skyrise color in a size small (I am a size 4, have wider shoulders, smaller chest, and consider myself petite. Pros of the Marmot Precip Eco: For a rain jacket, it seems much more breathable than previous rain jackets I have used. I also appreciate the fact that the Precip has pit vents. Outer Material appears to be durable and doesn't sound like a trash bag when wearing like a lot of rain jacketsI love that if you want to wear the hood it does not get tight around the neck. The hood is also adjustable, for those days that are windy. But if you are a person who does not like hoods, you can zip the hood in the collar. I appreciate that the jacket fit around my shoulders and chest. Although I am smaller chested, I do have bigger shoulders. Often times I have to size up because of this making the jacket feel too big. But the Marmot Precip Eco has more than enough room in my chest and shoulder area. I was even able to wear my thicker base layer underneath and still be comfortable. The Precip also seems to hold up well in rain, I wore this jacket on a hike in the North Cascades in a downpour. I did not sweat through it (even though it is a waterproof) and had no rain leak through the jacket. Lightweight and easy to stuff into a pack. Cons of the Marmot Precip Eco: The jacket is way to0 short in length and could be tight on someone's hips who is curvier than I am, it is almost a little too snug around my hips. I used this for both a daily rain jacket, hiking with a pack, and as an emergency rain jacket in my running pack. When wearing a backpack the jacket tends to ride up, causing air to flow in through the bottom, and an awkward look. When it's raining or windy you are not protected from the elements if you are hiking with it. This would get very annoying or cause chaffing on a backpacking trip. I couldn't imagine trying to use this jacket with my climbing harness. The pockets are also weirdly small. If you are wearing a pack while skiing, climbing, or hiking you basically have no access to the pockets. Or if you are wearing the jacket around town and want to keep your hands warm you feel pretty awkward trying to shove your hands in the pockets. (My hands are pretty small). The jacket lining is also low quality and starts to flake off after a few heavy use days. A complaint I have had with similar jackets with the same material. Throughout the years I have purchased many jackets and I wish companies would stop putting Velcro on the wrist and along the zipper. In the long run, it takes a toll on the jacket causing damage.wear to the areas where the Velcro is near. The Marmot Precip Eco is a great budget jacket for someone who is looking for an inexpensive rain jacket without the bells and whistles. It also makes a great jacket to use as an emergency rain jacket during summer backpacking months. I will continue to use it as an emergency rain jacket and around town. You can't beat the price if you are on a budget and the color that I received is beautiful.

Go-To Rain Jacket
This jacket is great and I totally understand the hype around it once I got one for myself! It's lightweight, easily packable, and holds up well in light rain or snow. The fit was great and the color options are fantastic! I especially loved the how the hood was attached- the inner collar still keeps your neck covered when the hood is down! My only complaint was the pockets- they are not very wide so it was a tad uncomfortable to keep your hands in the pockets for longer amounts of time. I'm excited though to take this jacket on more adventures!

Perfect rain jacket for ski/run
I was given this product from Backcountry, but this review Is my personal opinion. I had been looking for a lightweight, water-proof rain jacket for backpacking, running and ski touring and Marmotâs PreCip Eco Jacket is perfect! I wore it on a long ski tour in the Wasatch and was so happy to find that I didnât over heat during the skin/climb uphill and it was comfortable and kept me warm on the ski down. I also wore the jacket during a run in a spring snow storm in Park City, Utah where the snow was wet and heavy and temperatures were in the 30s â still no sweating and the weight wasnât an issue. I donât like bulky/weighty jackets when that active. Iâm 5â6â and weigh 100 lbs and the small fit well for the ski tour for layering with my lightweight down coat. I would probably size down to a XP for running since I was only wearing a light layer and it seemed a bit big. Favorite features include the hood and zip pits. Also, I always love Marmotâs soft fleecy material around the zipper at the chin. I am not a fan of Gortex jackets due to their stiffness but the Marmot PreCip Eco Jacket is flexible and easily fit into my pack on the ski tour without any additional weight. I ALWAYS wear black and was really loving the ORANGE color and received a few compliments while skiing USA Bowl up Big Cottonwood Canyon.

A Rain Shell for Most Days
I was given this product by Backcountry. This review is my personal opinion. The Marmot Eco PreCip is a great waterproof shell that also blocks wind. I love the yellow color which adds a bit of sunshine to rainy/snowy days. The lining is also a fun pattern. I ordered a medium (one size up from my normal size). The small felt tight and could not put layers under. It has pockets and pit zips. Although the pockets seem large, they are not very deep (which is my only complaint about the jacket). The hood is generous with drawstrings to make smaller if needed. Overall good jacket for most days, but would not take it if needed something substantial and technical.

Great rain jacket for everyday use
I was given this product from Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion. I am typically somewhere between XS and S in jackets, but decided to size up to accommodate layers underneath this rain jacket. I really liked the cut of the jacket. Sometimes when I size up in outdoor brand clothing, the fit gets too boxy, but size S in the Marmot Precip gave me the roominess I wanted for layering, while still keeping a slim fit and good length in the torso. I went with the Bonfire color, which ended up being a little more saturated orange than shown in the photo, but still not an obnoxious orange. I prefer bright colors to make sure I'm seen on the trail or crowded cities. So far, I've worn this jacket walking all over San Francisco which has been getting rain non-stop this winter, and the jacket has really held up. The Marmot Percip's waterproofness out performed my other Patagonia rain jacket and kept me 100% dry, so I'm pretty happy that it lived up to it's primary function. There's high quality velcro on the wrists and behind the hood. The hood has easy pull down elastic on the sides to keep the hood in place although I really wish the velcro at the back of the hood was an elastic pull tab instead, it was hard to adjust while wearing it. What is unique about this jacket that I really liked is that the hood is separate from the collar, and you can zip it all the way up without having the hood on. Also, the collar has a nice soft fabric near the chin so you don't feel the zipper on your face. I liked the high pockets, but I don't think the size of the hood would accommodate a helmet, so I probably will take a different shell when climbing or backcountry skiing. It's really lightweight and packs into it's own pocket, so while not for climbing/skiing, it will be great to take backpacking for peace of mind incase we run into any spring showers in the Sierras. Conclusion... I would for sure recommend this jacket to keep you dry while camping, hiking or everyday use. It does it's job really well and has all the little details that make it stand out.

Stood up to Canyonlands winter storm
I was given this product by Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion. I took the Marmot Eco PreCip on a week-long Utah road trip that included lots of rain and snow. In short, it was a great shell that blocked wind, rain, and snow all dayâI was happy to have it with me! My favorite feature was the hood, which was generous and stayed in place, covering my beanie and sometimes also my puffy hood. The tall collar was also comfortable, and the jacket's length ensured that it covered all my layers underneath. The XS seemed true to size, and the cut is flattering yet still gave me room for a base layer, thin fleece, and even my puffy jacket. It packs into its own pocket, and while the packed size was larger than the OR Helium, it provided more coverage and features (like pockets and pit zips) than the Helium, which I appreciated on this trip. My only complaint was that the lining of one of the pockets either arrived with a hole or quickly developed one, which was surprising given the quality of the jacket and Marmot products in general. Even so, I'm glad to have this jacket as an optionâI'll get a lot of use out of it.

Youll Stay Dry!
My wife used this jacket this last weekend while taking photos in the San Rafael swell. They had a big rain storm move in on them, and this jacket kept her completely dry. If you are looking for a lightweight rain jacket, this one wont fail you.

Best Bang for Buck 10 Years Running
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.

This jacket fits great, flattering but not too tight/ restricting

Great quality but tight in the chest
I really loved the lightweight fabric and it is incredibly water resistant! Also, I love that it has good sized mesh pockets. I'm planning to use it on a SOBO pct hike. If I had any complaints it would be that the chest and shoulder area is too tight and restricting. I have pretty broad shoulders and I want to have good movement and comfort in that area. I'm thinking about buying a men's jacket to fix this.
