Fully waterproof, breathable and durable enough for the trail, the Marmot PreCip Jacket is an excellent lightweight option for hikers and backpackers seeking reliable protection from wet or windy weather.
Offering full-featured 3-season protection, the durable PreCip Jacket keeps out rain and wind and offers maximum breathability. Marmot's NanoPro technology offers a waterproof/breathable coating that’s high performing and durable. It’s also comfortable with a smooth and silky feel against the skin that doesn't stick to your arms in warmer temperatures. This durable fabric can take the wear-and-tear of wearing a pack and offers drop shoulder seams to eliminate chafing. Pit zips and two mesh front pack pockets allow for increased ventilation. An adjustable hood with a stiffened brim lets you fine tune the fit when the weather gets nasty and rolls away into the collar when you don't need it.
Other features of the PreCip Jacket include a double storm flap over the front zipper, Velcro adjustable cuffs, an elastic draw cord hem and a DriClime lined chin guard for comfort. Marmot’s Angel-Wing movement reduces ride-up and allows freer arm movement. Last, the PreCip Jacket packs into one of the hand pockets for easy stowing when the weather is nice.
Available in a variety of size and color options, the Marmot PreCip Jacket offers a regular cut that layers well over light to medium weight fleece, sweaters or base layers.

Real Customer Reviews
- good for the $
Likes: I gave it 4 stars because I got it on sale and it's lightweight. So that's a weighted grade. It's ok, did the job for me for a while. It's out of my rotation now. Replaced by lighter gear in the warm weather and more substantial gear in the colder weather. I would say it runs large which is ok if you want to layer and also it's not so large that you can't just wear with a light layer. For reference, I'm 6' 175. I like how the hood rolls up into the collar which makes the jacket useful for everyday wear.
Dislikes: I guess fit and durability. 2? years of light use the waterproofing is shot, I've recoated it once already and I'm not sure if it's worth it to do it again.
- Great Jacket
Likes: Great raincoat and lightweight.
- Perfect Rainjacket
Likes: -extremely effective against rain with protected zippers
-folds into its own pocket as a bag for easy carry/storage
- Weight and price low, good performance
Likes: Weighs almost nothing. Hood covers the head but doesn't come too far to obscure field of view. Use the pit vents.
Dislikes: Like most thin shells it works great for about half a day before breaking through (my forearms collected some condensate).
- Survived Southeast Alaska
Likes: Used almost daily while working in Southeast Alaska for the summer. The jacket kept me dry and never ripped or failed.
Dislikes: It does breath but not well especially if you are active while wearing it.
- Great product!
Likes: Lightweight, simple design. Materials feel very high quality.
