User Review: Marmot Men's PreCip Jacket
Price Paid: $65
I've had this jacket for almost a year but until recently I have not had the chance to test it. I live in North Texas, where it never rains, but when it does, it's a monsoon. During the lighter rain the PreCip will do just fine, but if you find yourself out in the rain often, spending more money on a rain jacket will be well worth it.
As for people like me who live in semi-arid climates, the packability and performance of this jacket should be fine. It gets clammy and is not as breathable as the thin material would suggest. But it's superlight and works fine for its purpose. It's just not a severe weather shell. As for fit, it can be cinched down easily and allows for great flexibility.
