User Review: Marmot Men's PreCip Jacket
Price Paid: $90
Finally, a jacket I really like! I have two other breathable shell jackets and while they work well, they're just too heavy and bulky to bring along on summer hikes. I also have a 9oz non-breathable jacket and while the weight is nice it's really unpleasant to wear.
The Marmot PreCip on the other hand is near perfect. It's breathable, light, and it's waterproof. I got really dumped on for several hours by heavy rain a few weeks ago coming down off Mount Russell, but this jacket kept me dry. I was also considering the REI Ultralight Rain Jacket but it was a tiny bit heavier and more expensive. I have no regrets about buying the Marmot PreCip. It does the job.
