User Review: Marmot Men's PreCip Jacket
Price Paid: $65
This jacket is a nice shell to take out on cold days with a chance of light rain. Throwing a long sleeve shirt with a fleece is great for the late Fall when it's 40 degrees out. The model I have is a few years old so I'm not sure how current this review might be, but I thought I'd share anyway.
I like the jacket but I have some issues with it:
1) Every time it rains HARD I get wet. The cuffs and hem are the first to get wet as they seem to soak up the water, not repel it. I've seen this on other posts and totally agree with them.
2) The zip vents don't seem to do a great job venting. If I wear it without a long sleeve shirt under it, my arms are just as wet as if I weren't wearing the jacket. The only difference is my arms are warm.
3) The wrinkles! When you unpack it the jacket is completely wrinkled. I don't much care much but it looks like I pulled it out of a wet dirty clothes pile.
I would only recommend this jacket to someone that plans to use it on occasion in light rain only.
