emilywrote a review of Marmot PreCip Eco Jacket - Women's on September 22, 2018
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I put this jacket through a summer of Upper Peninsula rain and a full week of backpacking in almost nonstop rain and wind in the Faroe Islands. I stayed dry and wind protected for 6 of those days, but it couldn’t quite hold up to the hours of downpour we had one day. The sleeves started to leak at the cuff and the water just slowly worked it’s way up my arms. The torso and hood stayed dry. It’s very lightweight so you don’t get much warmth out of it, but it’s great to layer with. The arm vents were great for cooling down. All the seams are holding up and I don’t have any tears from running around in rocky terrain. For the price this is a fantastic jacket and I highly recommend it.
*I ordered the XL to be large so I could layer with a heavy fleece and it’s exactly what I needed. I think the large would have been much more form fitting for my size if that’s what you’re looking for
