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.
-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.
I've run this thing through weeks-long camping trips in pouring rain, as well as running to work in a drizzle. Used it climbing mountains and volcanoes as well as running to the pub across the street when I'm too lazy to grab an umbrella. It's lightweight, looks good, and gets the job done for a reasonable price. Pit-zippers are always welcome, and the whole thing is great at breaking the wind provided you're wearing another layer for insulation (as others have stated, this jacket is just an outer shell and will provide NO warmth).
I'm a big fan of the cut, but I'm also fairly tall and on the skinnier side of average. I could see it being snug on a beefier person. That said, for someone my build, this jacket makes me look diesel, like the protagonist of some badass cyberpunk novel who spends all his time in rainy, neon-lit alleys GETTING THE DAMNED STORY but also maybe works part time as a modern lumberjack who has a killer sense of style and makes all the lady lumberjacks swoon with his clean cut rain shell and ability to recite Regency-era poetry because he's mad complex, emotionally speaking. High marks.
This version of the Precip is incredibly breathable and incredibly effective at the same time. I overheat in other rain jackets, but not this one. And yet I've worn it in rain, snow, and at 13,000 feet in blizzard winds so hard that I was standing at a 45-degree angle just to avoid falling down.
Note that the sizing guide led me to buy a Large size, but I found it too big for my use case (I don't intend to wear more than two layers under it), so I returned it and picked up a Medium instead. Fits perfectly!
