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.

Lifetime Warranty
Marmot products include a limited lifetime manufacturer's warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.

About Marmot
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.

It is a very comfortable jacket, very light weight, works great in the rain.

I use this in ALL seasons, Great non-clammy jacket in the summer rain, and makes a great wind stopper and holds in the heat in the winter time as an outer shell.

After some research, I decided to get the Precip Jacket and have been very happy with the purchase.

I was trapped in Cincinnati about a week ago when the incessant rain came through. From sprinkles in the evenings, to at one point sheets of rain coming down that would have soaked me otherwise, the Marmot Precip jacket that I purchased at Dick's Sporting Goods turned out to be one of the best investments for the week (and probably well into the future) that I've made in my wardrobe purchases.

One thing about this jacket is that if you run water from the sink over the sleeve, absolutely no water gets through. It just runs right off. Truly watertight, yet comfortably thin enough to be breathable. Also if it's dusted with rain drops, you can just "shake it out" before you go inside and hang it up without water all over the place sliding all over you like on some more traditional rubberized raincoats. It packs extremely well for the business traveler (me) or backpacker, and can be layered to achieve the necessary warmth for the season. I imagine that this jacket will work well through the summer with my short sleeved collared shirts.

One interesting thing about what water does on this jacket is that like a newly waxed car, the drops of water seem to just stay in place - and then just fall off when you're moving. If I remember correctly the last North Face raincoat I had seemed to let water just roll all over the place, and soak into the corners and and seams. No issues here with this jacket.

The one issue, however, that I had with this jacket is that it doesn't push water away from your legs. I had a nice pair of slacks on while headed out for dinner in downtown Cincinnati. Running through the sheets of rain made the pants so soaked they stuck to my skin like a second layer of skin. But my starched shirt underneath stayed dry and crisp.

I went out on a hike in the Government Camp area of Mt. Hood yesterday. I was expecting rain and this would be the second time I was going to wear my cobalt blue Precip on a rainy hike. The first time, last weekend, it was just a sprinkle and I stayed completely dry. This time it was raining pretty hard and my friend and I were going on a lost hike - all the bridges across the 5 streams we had to cross had fallen long ago. When we hit 1400 to 4000 feet we experienced showers, light and heavy. I was perfectly dry and warm. At 4000 feet we crossed the snow line. I put on a fleece over my wool shirt and zipped up my precip. By the time I hit the summit, around 4500 feet, I was covered in snow and afraid I might lose my toes since I had not worn adequate snow boots. My torso was still dry and warm. We ran back down below the snow line to heat my feet back up. On the way back I fell into one of those streams we had to cross, but the jacket repelled the water (my pants did too, but that's another review).

Because it was a lost hike, we ended up crawling through some bushes with sharp thorns while trying to find ideal spots to cross the streams. I could feel the thorns scratching against the shell, but later examination showed no damage.

I purchased this at REI for a great price. I also looked at the REI brand rain shell and Patagonia's rain shell. My main reason for choosing this one was that it was a little bit longer than the other two - where the other two came about to my belt with my arms down and this one came below my belt - and the material was much less crisp than the Patagonia shell.

I was very satisfied with the performance of the precip and will continue to use it as my outer shell in my cold weather hikes.

Purchased a new Precip Jacket. Ready for a trip in a couple of weeks. I have had another Precip jacket that worked wonderfully. I just wore it out after many, many years of great services. It finally wore out with my backpack sholder straps. Have used other rain jacks and this one stood the test of time and the elements. I give marmont 5 stars on all of their gear.
The Precip keeps out the rain. Eliminatets sweating with the underarm zippers, and the coating inside the jacket doesn't stick to your skin like other rain jackets. I use this in ALL seasons, Great non-clammy jacket in the summer rain, and makes a great wind stopper and holds in the heat in the winter time as an outer shell. Doesn't seem to mind a little bushwacking either. I have been through heavy brush and briers and this thin jacket came out unscathed.
The new jacket is a replacement for one I just simply wore out after many years of hard service. I'm sure this one will give the same great service.

I've owned the Marmot Precip Jacket for about nine months, and have primarily used it for bike commuting.

It's a great jacket for riding a bike in cold temperatures. The heat builds up inside and keeps me warm. I've used it while biking in thirty-degree temps with only a dress shirt underneath and have felt warm. In even colder temps, I've worn a fleece or sweater underneath and have been comfy while riding to work. The only problem is that the jacket doesn't really breathe, so your perspiration kind of builds up on the inside of the jacket and can be a little wet. Pit zips help, but are only a slight improvement.

The Precip keeps rain out pretty well. I've used it in heavy rain storms and have been almost completely dry underneath.

Durability is where I'd give this jacket four stars. Mine tore fairly easily when my dog jumped up on me. However, I was able to fix it from the inside with a patch I bought on Amazon. I'm just not sure how that patch will hold for a very long time. It cleans up well, even when I had a hiking accident and the front of the jacket had a fair amount of blood on it. But like other reviews, I just don't feel like this jacket will last a long time.

If you're budget conscious, this jacket should suffice your need for a decent rain jacket. However, it may be worth spending a little more for something that's a little more durable and feels like it will last you longer if you can.

UPDATE: 1 1/2 year later.

This was my go-to jacket when bike commuting year-round or running errands in the spring and fall. My Precip jacket isn't 100% waterproof, and I get seepage through it around my shoulders, chest, and upper back. That began happening less than a year into my ownership.
