Originally ordered large, too big, very full cut in body, I'll use in colder season if I need layers. Ordered med., much better, more fitted, sleeves perfect length. I can wear with a light fleece if needed, a little snug in the neck & forearm with fleece. For reference, I'm 5'9", 168 lbs., med/large shirt (16-34 dress shirt), 32 waist.
That said, if what you want is something inexpensive that breaks the wind, sheds the water, and breathes well, look no further. I have tested this Marmot in several Oregon rainstorms without getting a drop inside.
The fit is designed for people with a pretty average build. For me, the chest and shoulders are a little more snug than I'd like, but if I trade up to an XL the waist will be way too baggy and the arms will be too long. It's acceptable, but if you are a weightlifter you will not be able to fit a thick sweater or fleece under this and still be happy with the fit.
Construction is a mixed bag. You can't expect much at this price point, and everything works pretty well. Some details aren't confidence inspiring though. The snap at the bottom is too sturdy; I keep expecting the jacket to tear when I open it. The fasteners for the hood drawstring are too tiny and weak; I keep expecting them to break off in my hands, and even if they don't they are hard to manipulate even with bare fingers, much less with gloves.
As a lightweight waterproof shell, equipped with pit zips, cut so that you can actually move without pulling the surface all over, the Precip is about as good as you will likely find IMHO.
-Fit. I'm a lanky 6'2"/170lbs and I ordered a Large, for the length. The torso is a perfect fit (neither loose nor excessively baggy) and accommodates a layer underneath. The arms are a great length.
-Quality. Well-build zippers, velcro cuffs, sturdy button clasp, and waterproofing has withstood many commutes and camping trips in the rain and through brush without showing signs of wear and tear nor interior disintegration. So far, seems more durable than the other two jackets I owned.
-Design. It is a lightweight shell, not intended to be insulation. The rain and the sun can appear on the same day here in the PNW and the jacket can be worn for both thanks to the pit zippers and the ability to tuck the hood under the tall collar. Can be worn 24/7!
-Button clasp sticks when quickly pulling apart the velcro but needs to be clasped because it will click together if left undone.
-The tall collar took some getting used to.
-The material is noisy when crumpled.
Overall a great choice for a mid-price rain jacket and the extra features and option if you want to upgrade from the lowest-price jackets.
