User Review: Marmot Men's PreCip Jacket
Price Paid: $76
I own two of these jackets, one sized larger to go over an insulating layer. They both have kept me dry under a variety of conditions from drizzle to heavy rain/hail, and wet snow storms.
Two weeks ago I hiked in the rain for several days in the South San Juan Wilderness and seldom took the jacket off, it kept me dry and comfortable the whole trip. I generated a lot of body heat carrying a pack at high altitude and the large pit-vents did a great job of letting perspiration out.
In the winter, I use this jacket while snowshoeing when it's snowing and as a wind block over a fleece. When I'm not wearing the jacket it usually travels hanging off the outside of my pack where I can get to it without digging for it- I haven't noticed any unusual wear.
I've had these jackets for 3 years. A very good jacket for the price.
