User Review: Marmot Men's PreCip Jacket
Price Paid: $99
I bought the Precip as a package deal along the Precip Pants for a backpacking trip to New Mexico a few years back.
My overall experience with this jacket wasn't as expected. I found that while it did keep me mostly dry during the afternoon rains it was terrible at wicking away moisture from bare skin and was not breathable at all. Sometimes if felt that i was better off with out it on. However it was wind proof and was able to keep me warm during colder nights (only because it retained so much body heat).
It seems from the reviews and from personal experience that the Precip is a hit or miss. My tentmate who had the same jacket loved his, so buyer beware. I've kept mine in storage for a few years and have brought it out for when i needed a lightweight windproof shell for an outer layer, for that purpose it's fine but otherwise if you're looking for a versatile rain jacket look other places.
On a side note the Precip rain pants were phenomenal. I still use them to this day on with sweatpants for snow.
