Product Description

The Marmot Precip multi-activity jacket is a modern classic, thanks to its great price and features that make it ideal for those travelling light and fast in almost any activity. The Precip is made from an extremely waterproof fabric, while mesh pockets and pit zips improve condensation control, which is worth having when biking or running. The front zip also gets a double stormflap to improve water resistance in the worst weather. The Precip is an average length for this type of jacket with a slightly scooped tail to protect the back when biking. Movement in the sleeves is very good and it’s easy to access the two cavernous chest pockets while wearing a rucksack. The hood can be rolled into the collar, which is ideal for bikers, runners and climbers, and on the head movement of the hood is good too. But a more breathable fabric is available if you spend more cash. The Marmot Precip is quite a short jacket, which is great for fast movement, but some may prefer longer options. The hood movement is not ideal and neither is the soft hood peak, while the lack of reflective piping is not great for night action.

PAROFES"Fair to be fair"

Voted 4/5

Marmot is a heavy weight name for outdoor clothing, truth. But Precip rain coat gives us a lot of second thoughts. I got these back in 2009 and used several times.
Well, for snow conditions is great and not every snow. That half frozed snow that melts quickly after it hits you, not good. Good firm snow, well, okay then.
For wet season, rain in general. It sucks! After ten minutes you will be absolutly wet from head to toes.
I don't recomend these for south america rain season, but for high altitudes and snowy conditions, fair enough.
