rated 0.5 of 5 stars Just returned a Marmot Helium bag after two uncomfortable nights in the Wind River Range for cold spots in the hip and upper chest area. Based on my own personal experience I cannot recommend it. I purchased this bag as a replacement for my old reliable Marmot Lithium because, over the years, the down in the bag had seeped through the lining leaving cold spots.   The Helium had great features with the full zip from top or bottom to allow easy ingress and egress and foot ventilation plus the partial… Full review

PreCip Jacket

rated 3 of 5 stars OK jacket for overall use. Useful against wind/cold and good for hiking because of the pockets and pit zips. Not so good against rain and the inside coating does not last long. I am 189cm (6'2"). I use this jacket for hiking. I find that this jacket is not really useful against rain and that it does not last long. Still, I find it extremely useful during hiking because of its low weight. I really always use this jacket, even when skiing (I put on one other warm layer underneath). Hiking in warm… Full review

PreCip Jacket

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Inexpensive shell jacket that does a decent job of blocking wind and rain. Durability is average. Breathability is better than average. Value is hard to beat. I'm 6 feet tall and 175 lbs with an athletic build. I purchased this jacket new to take on a year-long trip through South America. I used this jacket as my rain jacket, wind jacket, insect protection, and light insulating layer. After one year of demanding use this jacket held up slightly above average. The construction held up, but the DWR… Full review

PreCip Pant

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great for hiking, backpacking, any wet or chilly to cold weather. Summary - These are my go-to rain protection pants when hiking and backpacking. The full length leg zippers can not be overrated — adds ventilation when needed, easy to put on quickly in sudden downpour, and zippers do not leak in heavy rain. My Use - These pants have had a lot of wear on mountain backpacks in the Rockies and Sierras. Also great on day hikes in the rain when I want to be out for at least several hours and remain… Full review

PreCip Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars Good mountain rain shell. Lightweight, with pit zips. Summary - This is my primary rain protection for spring/summer/fall backpacking and camping trips. It has held up well in a variety of conditions. Still have not found a jacket that breathes as well as advertised. My Use - This has kept me dry on downpours in the Rockies and Sierras. And in warmer rains the pit zips help in ventilating. On chilly mornings and evenings, and some of them are downright cold in the mountains, it holds the heat in… Full review
