User Review: Marmot Men's PreCip Jacket
Price Paid: $99
Hmm, seems like the general consensus is that this jacket is waterproof. I went for a leisurely 45-minute walk in moderate rain and found that the jacket leaked, especially in the seams around the wrist cuffs and on horizontal surfaces (tops of forearms and shoulders). I wore a cotton T-shirt and found that it became soaked in these areas. My bare forearms were drenched with the fabric adhering to my skin. I started to get cold from the the dampness. I licked my forearms to see if it was perspiration or actually rain -- no salty taste so I concluded that it was rain and not sweat.
I think this is a great jacket in all other respects and situations. It is fantastic for a light shower, but failed me miserably for the very reason I bought it -- waterproofness.
