User Review: Marmot Men's PreCip Jacket
Price Paid: $100
I owned this jacket for one year, after I tore my trusty L.L. Bean Packable Gore-Tex raincoat.
Despite what the jacket advertised, the "waterproof, breathable" material that the PreCip Jacket was made of retained a lot of heat and was not breathable either in hot or cold climates; I found myself sweating every time it rained.
After about 8 months of wearing it on a regular basis, it no longer was waterproof. The fabric itself became saturated with water whenever it rained. I returned it after I got fed up with being soaked all the time. (Thank you, REI!)
I bought a new North Face Gore-Tex, and have been happy for well over a year and a half now; it is equally lightweight to the Marmot PreCip, breathable, and 100% waterproof.
