The PreCip Jacket is stylish, value-oriented, full-function rainwear for backcountry and urban travelers alike.
This affordably priced, feature-full women's jacket from outdoor outfitter Marmot will keep you dry when the weather turns nasty, and is equally at home on the mountain trail and city sidewalk. Made of Marmot's PreCip nylon ripstop material, it features waterproof breathability to protect you from rain and perspiration alike, and is 100% fully seam-taped. A full visibility roll-up hood is completely adjustable for a custom fit via Velcro pull tab and elastic cinch cord, and PitZips help you regulate temperature when your heart rate picks up.
Marmot's PreCip Material
PreCip is Marmot's lightest, most compressible, waterproof, and breathable rainwear, with moisture-wicking fabric and optimal venting to keep you dry from the inside out. The new PreCip coating has been improved for greater waterproof breathability, and the Marmot line of PreCip clothing has been outfitted with articulated designs and cleverly-placed pockets for optimal comfort and convenience.
The key to this fabric is its updated barrier technology, a microporous polyurethane impregnated with silicon dioxide particles. This barrier creates small, numerous, consistent holes that allow small water vapor molecules to escape while blocking larger liquid particles. This keeps rain out while allows perspiration to work its way outside the garment, away from your body. When the weather turns fair, PreCip garments are compressible enough to be stuffed into a standard wide-mouth water bottle, and come in a variety of colors and styles for multiple applications.
Marmot products include a limited lifetime manufacturer's warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
In April 1971, University of California Santa Cruz students Eric Reynolds and Dave Huntley were in Alaska on the Juneau ice fields for a Glaciology school project. This was where the idea of Marmot, originally a collegiate climbing club, began. Reynolds and Huntley soon began making prototypes of down products such as vests and sleeping bags in their dorm room in Santa Cruz. By the spring of 1973, Reynolds and Huntley partnered with fellow climber Tom Boyce to open a modest rental and retail location, named Marmot Mountain Works, in a 100-year-old building in Grand Junction, Colorado.
Their first large order was for 108, as the producer called them, "very puffy jackets" for the movie The Eiger Sanction, with Clint Eastwood, which helped make down outerwear fashionable. In 1976, Marmot was one of the first companies to recognize the value of a new technology being developed by W.L. Gore & Associates. Marmot was soon producing waterproof Gore-Tex sleeping bags, with Reynolds and Huntley testing early prototypes by sleeping in meat lockers and under fire sprinklers, and later introduced the waterproof/breathable fabric into nearly all Marmot products.
From humble beginnings, Marmot and its product line have grown over the years, and today the company is headquartered in Rohnert Park, California, with offices all over the world and distribution in more than 60 countries.

took the rain coats to Ireland for the ultimate test and they worked better than I ever expectedPublished 7 days ago by Kimbelry Jones
This is a great rain jacket- good quality materials. I love that it is more fitted to my petite frame compared to most other women's bulky jackets.Published 11 days ago by mary c council
Tailored fit, awesome red color, no color bleeding THUS FAR (which is something people remark on) but it has't been exposed to torrential rains quite yet. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Ellen Stoehr
Bought this as a gift for my daughter. She likes the lightweight feel, neutral color, sleek feel, attractive design, and perfect fit. An added bonus is the packability. Read morePublished 1 month ago by MomX4
I usually wear an XL in women's sizes, and this definitely fits, but there's certainly no wiggle room in the shoulders and torso, and yet somehow the sleeves are too long. Read morePublished 2 months ago by TXODork
