"Says the jacket helps combat drizzly rain." The definition of "drizzly" is a fine sprinkle of rain. So the jacket will not stand up to more than a light sprinkle, and even then they say that is uncertain. Nowhere does the description say "waterproof". Says it blocks "precip", which is slang for "precipitation". One definition of "precipitation" is rain and snow, but another definition is moisture in the air. I have to see the word "waterproof" in the description before I will risk $300 and a lot of time and aggravation.

I was wondering why I would occasionally feel bursts of cold air against my skin in spots. If you put your finger behind the fabric; you cannot see your finger; however, if you then press your finger against the fabric and stretch the fabric; then you do see your finger and you see spaces between the fibers. These underpants fit like tights; very snugly. When I would move and thus, stretch the fabric I would feel a burst of cold air against my skin in an odd, filtered, way in the spot where I was flexing the fabric. I wore these in 45-degree weather. I was not cold, but I was not warm, and not as warm as my lightweight 100% cotton thermals; and the cold bursts were annoying. The thermals look nice and are well made as far as making tights go. I do not recommend them for a cold day. If you have never worn tights; they are not uncomfortable, but not as comfortable as non-form-fitting thermals. If you have a great body and are planning to walk around the house in these to impress someone; then the form-fitting look nice. Otherwise; you are better off buying non-form-fitting.

I wore my brand new Marmot Precip Jacket in a light rain and the water went right through.
People relying on this jacket to keep them dry and thus warm in a cold mountain rain could die, because of blatantly FALSE ADVERTISING by unreliable, Marmot and retailers. I would like to know who is responsible?

In warmth, this jacket is equal to a fleece-jacket.
This jacket packs smaller than a fleece-jacket. That is the advantage over fleece.

If you are looking for a really warm jacket to warm you up when chilled; get a down-jacket instead. I gave 3-stars instead of 5-stars only because warmer, down-insulation would be better. I would be concerned about warmth in temperatures below 35-degrees even layering a shell-jacket on top. Unlike down, you can hike in this synthetic-insulated, jacket without perspiring.

I am 6'-2" tall, 210-pounds. The extra-large fits me well. The jacket is long enough. Sleeves are long enough, with elastic at the ends. The jacket is slim-fitting, but not tight. Not bulky. A very tailored fit. I could wear a large, but a large felt confining. The jacket does not lift up when you raise your arms. A very soft, pliable, comfortable jacket.

Two, good-sized, zip-pockets to put your hands in, or hat. Small, chest-pocket. Jacket zips easily. Resists stains (I spilled ketchup on it and it wiped off without a trace).

I was glad to find a normal-color offered, Navy-Blue, which was not shiny.

This is a very nice Summer, Spring, & Fall jacket.

I washed this MSR dromedary bag with dishwashing-liquid, and rinsed it very, thoroughly, repeatedly. I filled it with water. The bag left a bad, after-taste that stung the back of my throat, and lingered. The bag's innner-coating is leaching into the water. I felt the inside of the bag with my finger; it is a rough surface, meaning the inner-coating is so thin that it conforms to the rough outer fabric; suggesting it is a spray-on coating. It looks like a spray-on inner coating. Someone write the FDA.

Instead I bougt an insulated, Camelbak-brand "Unbottle"- 70-oz., and removed the bladder and inserted a Platypus-brand 2-liter, roll-up, bottle with screw-on top. So I could use it as an insulated canteen. I had to buy an inexpensive, insulated water-bottle holder ($10) to cut out a 3-inch-circle to sew over the space left by removing the Camelbak’s bladder. Required a little sewing. Works great. Kept my water cold in California-summer. Velcro opening.
