The Marmot Men’s PreCip Jacket is so legit for those dull, rainy days. Well, you could make them un-dull by putting on the PreCip and going out and having fun outdoors still. This Marmot jacket is 100 percent seam taped, and is made from waterproof PreCip Dy Touch technology. So fancy. An elastic draw cord hem makes it easy to find the perfect fit, and this thing has a roll-up hood. Dang. You’ll probably want it to rain when you get this baby. Maybe not, but rainy days won’t be as bad.
We haven't seen the numbers to confirm it, but we are pretty sure that the Marmot Precip Jacket is the best-selling raincoat in all of history. Its popularity is well-founded; it's light enough to take on a hike, waterproof enough to shield you from a thunderstorm, and affordable enough to not break the bank. The 2.5-layer PreCip technology that gives the jacket its name is based on a bi-component waterproof coating, comprising both monolithic (solid) and microporous (full of tiny holes) layers, finished off with a dry-touch inner treatment. As for how well it works, the popularity of the jacket should tell you everything you need to know.
In April 1971, University of California Santa Cruz students Eric Reynolds and Dave Huntley were in Alaska on the Juneau Icefields on a school project in Glaciology. It was here on the glacier, amongst these students, that the idea of a Marmot club began. To become a Marmot, you had to climb a glaciated peak with another Marmot. One of the rules of the club was that everyone was president. Most of the other rules dealt with the collegiate fascination with bodily functions.
Eric and Dave went on to found Marmot Mountain Works in 1974, and through the years the company made lots of innovations in down jackets, sleeping bags, Gore-Tex apparel, and beyond. Their modest enterprise is now one of the largest and most respected outdoor gear companies in the world, distributed in over 60 countries, and it is still all about the highest-quality, innovative performance products.

PreCip® Dry Touch Technology, Waterproof/Breathable Waterproof / Breathable PreCip™ is Marmot's “next step” technology that enables them to construct the lightest, most compressible, technical, waterproof and breathable rainwear in the world. Ventilated and breathable to keep you dry from the inside, PreCip rainwear has plenty of pockets and custom fit features to keep you warm, dry and comfortable.
The key to PreCip™ is its barrier technology: a microporous polyurethane that is impregnated with silicon dioxide particles. These particles create small, numerous, very consistent holes that allow the barrier to pass small water vapor molecules but not the bigger liquid ones. This keeps the rain out while letting your sweat vapor work its way outside, away from your body, to keep you dry from the inside as well as from the outside. PreCip™ rainwear is compressible enough to stuff into a water bottle and comes in enough colors and styles to travel with you anywhere– to the mountains, the city or overseas.
The Marmot PreCip Jacket is an extremely lightweight waterproof/breathable shell. The PreCip is fully featured with pitzips, core venting and everything else you'd expect from a $400 piece, yet it weighs half as much and costs only a fraction.

Also, the PreCip Jacket is highly compressible - perfect for those outings when you don't expect it to rain but going without rain gear would be too risky.

This jacket is perfect for the budget minded climber. What I mean by this, is that you can throw this on before leading an offwidth at Vedauwoo and not be worrying the whole time about blowing a hole in your $500 rainshell. This jacket goes everywhere with me, it is always in my bag. On alpine climbs, this is the shell that goes over my capilene 3 top in the morning to give a little extra warmth. I take this on long mountain biking trips, long hikes, day cruises, and free solos. There is not a time or place that you will catch me without this jacket. Nitpicks: This is not the most breathable jacket. The pit zips are nice, but if you close them, expect to sweat. This is also not the lightest shell out there. If you have the money and are a super minimalist climber, go buy the patagonia M10 jacket. Last nitpick: the fit is not as slim as I like. I never really layer this over much, so I like my shells to be slim. However, this would be an excellent choice as a shell over a small down jacket for some winter ice climbing. Great product! Marmot really has their stuff together.
When I say two places, in or on, I mean "in" my pack or "on" my back. I've been buying the Precip since Marmot first introduced it. One, you can't beat the quality and price and two Marmot stands behind their products 100%.
I've used the Precip from Mt. Rainier to cool PNW rainy summer bike rides. It's my go to jacket. Yea, it's light weight and not a severe rated jacket. I get it in a size larger so I'm able to layer under for the cold weather. Washing will take away the waterproofing but using Nikwax products will bring it back to life. If you use it like I do, don't expect it to outlast a $500 alpine jacket. This is a $100 jacket and you get what you pay for plus more. I get two plus years out of each one and I don't worry about abusing it, plus when you get tired of your current color you won't mind shucking out for another one in a new color.
The sizing can run a bit large for most. Using a large for me, 6' 175#, allows room for layering and the hood enables wearing a helmet.
The jacket fits well, I'm 5'11'' and 155lbs and the medium fits great. The sleeves are a perfect length for me. Used it a couple of times in the rain and didn't get wet. The pit zips are a great feature. The jacket isn't very breathable, but I knew that from the specs, but the pit zips made a storm in 75 degree weather comfortable. I got this on sale, but after using it I would have paid full price. Only complaints are that the hood could fit better. It seems big and looking side to side is inconvenient. I would have liked a slimmer fit as well, but it really isn't too bulky. It should be perfect to use when I go snowboarding and need to put a few layers. Overall, this is a great shell for the price.
Really liked this jacket when I first got it - pockets, fit, style, etc. 5'10/165 runs true for a large. Unfortunately, it lost it's waterproofing after a year. Wrists wore out a little quick too. I expected more from a Marmot.
