Paul B.wrote a review of Marmot PreCip Eco Jacket - Men's on June 29, 2019
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
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.
