User Review: Marmot Men's PreCip Jacket
It's frustrating when you see that this jacket gets award after award every year, and that most of the people who buy it love it, but the one that I own is absolutely useless.
I don't expect it to preform like 3 layer Gore-tex, but at least keep me dry in the rain from the parking lot into the store! I would NEVER take this jacket into the backcountry. When it snows it wets through, when it drizzles it wets through. I don't know how anybody can say this jacket is waterproof. I mean I never even get to the breathability issue.
Even after the full Nikwax wash treatment, water beads only minimally the first few times you wear it in the lightest rain, and after that its wet through city. Garbage, absolute garbage.
